MATTHEW WILLIAMSON

www.2bemag.com www.2bemag.com

His first job following graduation was a freelance design project with Marni. Matthew was then employed by British fashion company, Monsoon and Accessorize. The luxury fashion house, Matthew Williamson, was founded in February 1997 by designer, Matthew Williamson and CEO, Joseph Velosa. In September 1997 Matthew Williamson showed his infamous debut collection, ‘Electric Angels’, during London Fashion Week. Bias cut dresses and separates in exotic shades of tangerine, fuchsia and magenta were worn by models Kate Moss, Helena Christensen and Jade Jagger. This unique collection of bright, intricately detailed pieces defined and set the pace for the highly recognisable Matthew Williamson signature aesthetic. Following this initial show, Matthew Williamson’s collections have continued to gather momentum, cementing his reputation as an internationally renowned designer and one of the UK’s leading designer talents. In February 2002, Matthew showed for the first time during New York Fashion Week expanding opportunities within the press and attracting a wider audience commercially. The award-winning Matthew Williamson flagship store first opened at 28 Bruton Street, Mayfair, London in March 2004. In 2005 Matthew Williamson took over as Creative Director at LVMH owned Italian house, Emilio Pucci, whilst continuing at the design helm of his namesake company. In September 2008 Matthew Williamson returned to London full time in order to focus fully on his own label’s forthcoming ventures and expansion.

In August 2007 TSM Capital acquired an equity stake in Matthew Williamson Holdings Ltd. Baugur Group, which invested in the company in 2006, maintains a significant equity interest in the business. TSM Capital made the investment in collaboration with the Aronsson Group. Combined, Matthew Williamson and Joseph Velosa, the company’s founders, retain the majority stake in the company. In September 2007 Matthew Williamson was invited to celebrate the label’s 10th year anniversary by returning to London fashion week for an anniversary show which included an exclusive performance by legendary artist, Prince. An exhibition dedicated to his retrospective titled, “Matthew Williamson – 10 Years in Fashion” was also held at the Design Museum, London. In September 2009, Matthew Williamson was invited by the British Fashion Council to return to celebrate London Fashion Weeks 25th anniversary. The luxury fashion house now produces 4 women’s wear collections annually and currently has a customer portfolio which includes 170 prestigious wholesale accounts around the world and also has an award-winning flagship store on Bruton Street, London. In 2009, Matthew Williamson opened its first US flagship store in New York, accompanied by a further stand alone retail store in the Dubai Mall, Dubai. This was closely followed by the launch of online stores for the UK, Europe and US.

Invisible City Symphonies Festival We understand the cities through the experiences that we have in them. The arcitecture, the people, the streets… they take form according to how you observe them. Under these circumstances “Invisible City Symphonies” was born, a festival based on the exhibition of personal views of different cities in the form of video-art. The project, organized by the platform VideoKills by various artists from Berlin, has toured cities such as New York, Berlin, Barcelona and the next month it will take place in Paris. Every meeting brings together the work of various artists that present pieces of video-art of different styles that reflect the current, historical, future or unreal happenings in the cities. All the videos are silent even though the event is constantly accompanied by sounds of for e.g. classical music, electronic music, jazz, metal experimental sounds or dialogues. The pieces are original, designed and played live by other artists, recreating the time of silent films when the movies had an original soundtrack that accompanied the stories. In every city, “Invisible City Symphonies” have presented projects of international artists that also realized similar personal projects. The combination shows the limits of space and urbanity and how it blurs out the lines between the visual and audio perception. The featured piece is called “The City That Made My Feature” of Lee Hunter with music by Leo Betteneli, a personal vision of a future city that mixes diverse images from different origins.

Gadget World POLAROID COMING BACK The three models that are being brought back to life are the original SX-70, the Rainbow OneStep, and the Sun 660 Sonar. They span three decades of Polaroid development between 1972 and 1990, and each has been hand-inspected and retooled to work like new again. And these aren’t just any Polaroids. The SX-70 was the first to use the company’s color instant film, the first to let you watch your film develop before your very eyes. The OneStep came into being during the days of disco—the rainbow stripe is a dead giveaway—while the Sun 660 was produced well into the 90s and features sonar focusing.

The designer Elie Saab (40y.o) became world famous in 2002 when Halle Berry, who received the Oscar for best actress, appeared wearing a beautiful burgundy.dress made of tulle and organza. From that moment, the Lebanese couturier shop has not stopped receiving applications from actresses, singers and celebrities from around the world. About two hundred people including fashion designers and operators strive to do the more than a thousand orders that it receives every year. “Yes, I have the luck and honor to have the confidence of many women who want me to dress them up at major events and festivals,� says Elie. Admirer of the famous couturier Valentino, Elie Saab was the first non-Italian designer invited to present his haute couture collection in the High Fashion Week in Rome in 1997 and since then every season parade in Paris, Rome and Milan.

Sewing, fashion and design are his passion, is self taught. As a child, Saab, son of a lumber merchant of Beirut, he dreamed of making beautiful clothes, and were his mother and sisters who had the privilege to wear his creations. Obvioulsy, first done with sheets of newspaper. “Design is what I like most, it’s no sacrifice,” says Elie. At 18 and at the height of the civil war in Beirut, which lasted 15 years, Saab introduced his first collection of clothing, opened its first store and opened a small workshop where he made wedding dresses, one of his great wekness .The press in Beirut has characterized Saab as a precocious genius. “When I started there was nothing in the Lebanese fashion or in the Arab world. Now, many young people are eager to jump into the world of fashion. In my country there is much talent, “says Saab. The key to success is to “conquer the everyday beauty and renew it. What really matters is the mystery woman, not the obvious clothes. I like the subtlety, “said Saab, who is married to Claudine, his right hand in the workshop.

Exquisite fabrics, lightweight fabrics, semi-precious stones and dreamly embroidered are some of the materials used in his designs of haute couture and cocktails. “Haute couture is a meticulous and laborious craft,. Each dress takes us many hours of work, embroidery made stitch by stitch, is a real work of art. Never count the hours spent on each creation. The most important thing is the result, “says the designer with some shyness. Most of his costumes surround us by the magic of the Arabian Nights. Constantly working to highlight the beauty of women , he floods the walkways with glamorous with silk, chiffon and embroidered multicolored, always following very closely the female body. “I think women now have a similar taste. Earlier, Arab women had a particular taste, not now “, says Saab. www.univision.com

Emerging Raw Talents The whole work program set by Siviglia is based on innovation. Innovation understood in a deep and global way and oriented to a search of a mix of more effective factors compared to market standards. Obviously the heart of innovation is in the product: and is expressed in fabrics that assure performance, in the manufacture and in the finishing details. We also have specific novelties such as the “qr-code” which is present in all products of the a.i. 2010 collection. It is a new digital code placed on the tickets which allows access to the Siviglia site through mobile phone. At the site there can be specific temporary initiatives reserved to the end customer. Siviglia’s headquarters are in Marotta, a town overlooking the Adriatic Sea in the province of Pesaro and Urbino. Siviglia has created its business by focusing on find a specific identity and coherence. At the same time it has found a way to true freedom of expression and to open up dialog with others. At the base of Siviglia’s development is the creation of a world of reference that can be recognized by the business universe and consumers through the messages and actions of the brand. The contents of this “Siviglia universe” come from the product’s style, the simultaneous presence of men’s wear, women’s wear, children and infants wear collections, its business coherence, the initiatives it develop to support the brand and the accurate selection of the environments where Siviglia has chosen to perform its actions. The style is never trivial, it helps face life with a smile and can be seductive in a sophisticated way, both in the women’s wear collection and the men’s wear. Children and infant wear are able to convey the origins of the brand with values and symbols that are both deep and enthralling. Our products are made following rigorous standards of quality. The company constantly develops all the research needed to use, as much as possible exclusive materials, techniques and technologies so as manufacture a unique product. Control over the whole

production line based on the industrial experience of One Way, the company that generated the Siviglia brand and that has the capacity to guarantee for the industrial processes. Siviglia presents its collection of man, woman, children and infant wear. Siviglia in fact has customers starting from the tender age of three months old. The stylistic and commercial links between the collections are radical and never trivial. Their development increasingly interprets the articulations present in commercial markets and transforms the restrictions and the differentiated characteristics of distribution into success factors. An example of the strength of this system comes, specifically, from the choice of managing directly within the company the collections directed to the youngest customers. This choice helps prevent dispersions and enhances the idea of brand uniformity and coherence. The collections express a global style which is suitable to any market today. Communications that are placed in the international fashion campaigns can therefore be understood in any country and can generate involvement and success. Some of the most famous photographers such as Mert & Marcus and David Sims have contributed to the advertising campaign, as well as some of the most important stylists such as Katie Grand and Joe McKenna. The advertising campaigns and the brand idea are rigorously fashion oriented. This language, in its elevated version, means the search for contemporary meanings in everything. But at the same time, Siviglia pays attention to how people dress in everyday life, and therefore, the collections can really be worn. Finally, the strategic planning of advertising gives concrete expression to the role of image. This is guaranteed by fashion magazines where the Siviglia pages are always present, its positioning among the big companies in the fashion system, which all confirm the quality of the project developed by Siviglia.

www.sivigliastyle.com Siviglia, the brand created in 2006 by One Way to position its idea of fashion on the market, has communicated also through its participation to the most important trade show dedicated to man’s fashions: Pitti Immagine in Florence. The distinctive feature of this period was the rapid commercial development together with the enhancement of the role of the brand on the market, which were surely founded on the strategic integration of the “total’ look of the three lines of men’s women’s and children’s wear.
