EDITORâ€™S LETTER 156
assword: Power. It can be seen and interpreted in many ways, in general it is often seen by people as something negative that the powerful use to overwhelm the weak. Here Iâ€™d like to think of it as something to think about and aspire to. How much unused power does each of us have? Certainly humans have some very great ones: to get up, reinvent themselves, survive. Today we celebrate all these people who struggle every day looking at their dreams from bottom and who are really committed to achieve them, those who have achieved the goal or are doing it. We celebrate human dedication, our power. Editor-in-chief Facebook: @marta.forgione Instagram: @martaforgione

This Spring features a variety of new faces as well as old friends. We all know by now that warmer weather equals brighter colours and curious patterns -which were widely present and represented in a widespread 70s vibe- but along with that, more earthy and neutral colours have been found amongst the creations of many designers, giving a good balance of fun and classy to play with. In terms of shapes and volumes, there is yet another contrast. The boss lady, with her square blazers and wide shoulders, was walking along a more romantic friend that loves bows and soft layers of fabric. There is room for everyone to express themselves or, why not, to mix things up. The cherry on top was represented by practicality, perfectly embodied by the biker shorts that are not only easier and more democratic than those very-short-shorts that models look so good in, but also quite versatile and pair well with virtually any top, or blouse, or jacket, or dress even! In terms of accessories, a special mention goes to bags. The summery vibe we love is translated into the use of nets and fringes, and that artisanal look that makes us think of those little stands on the beach. On the other side the accessory that keeps everyone still in love is the belt bag, aka fanny pack, that has been under the spotlight for a few seasons and does not seem to have lost its appeal. As far beauty is concerned there was a shift from clothes to face and hands for our dear shimmers and sparkles. Sparkly eyeshadows and metallic mani are going to be big this season and glossy, shiny hair will do their part too. It is always worth remembering that sunscreen should be worn all year round, but especially in spring and summer it is important to be more aware of the reapplication. SPF should not mess with a full face of makeup and, to preserve it, the innovations in the beauty industry come to the rescue. Spring 2019 Trends
TAKE A BOW
This retro/ultra feminine staple is coming back in full force on dresses, blouses, skirts and shirts. The proportions are exaggerated on clothes but more subtle alternatives can be found on accessories such as hair ties and earrings. A winning look can be achieved with making our bow the start of the show and keeping the rest very minimal. The only exception? A not so subtle sparkle on the eyes to keep things interesting, one of the big beauty trends for this spring.

This neutral, classy range of colours was very present on Riccardo Tisci’s first runway show for Burberry. Not that surprising considering that the iconic trench colour inscribes perfectly into this palette. But this hue, declined in various shades, turned out to be rather present on the catwalk of many designers this season thus making it a desirable alternative to the more-wintery grey. A neutral palette is therefore maintained for this look while a twist is given by the statement heels and your best natural hair, with a glossy finish.

Truthfully, the strong and independent woman theme has been a thing for quite some time now, but designers - and usseem to keep loving it and being able to find new ways to portray it. This time, the chosen alternative goes something like “I stole my boyfriend’s jacket but I’m making it sexier”. The sexy and mysterious look is achieved with dark bold lips and -obviouslysunglasses to top a skintight but not too revealing black dress.

TIE DIE FOR
Prints, especially colourful and floral ones are always a big hit on any Spring/Summer collection. This time the theme took a 70s turn and portrayed a tie-dye motif that periodically makes its return on the scenes. This boho-beachy vibe is kept for this look with an interesting clutch and big earrings. Since the sun is getting warmer but we do not want to mess up our make-up, this setting mist with SPF 50 becomes our best friend.

One of the biggest and probably most practical trends for this spring is biker shorts. The versatility of this garment is remarking. Pair it with a dangerously short dress, a casual tshirt, a boxy shirt and dress them up or down, the possibilities are endless according to the occasion. This casual outfit features an asymmetric cardigan and a very practical and very coveted piece, the infamous fanny pack that finally gave our hands and shoulders a break. Metallic nail polish to complete the look and off we ride!

Editor’s letter PANTONE LIVING CORAL
the Elegance of
IN YOUR DESIGN

It’s not orange, it’s not pink and it hold all the variety and beauty of nature: Living Coral recalls the vivid shades of the Reef in its most cheerful and colourful manifestation. by Veronica Valdambrini
Colours have the ability to evoke different feeling and reactions. The influence of them can completely change the idea we have of a certain space or element, moreover the colours we surrounds ourselves with can have a profound impact on our lives. For this 2019 PANTONE bets on coral, the eco-friendly and the right mix of retro and social aesthetics colour. A bold and playful colour full of energy where pink and orange meet each other. It is an animating and lifeaffirming red coral hue, evokes images of tropical seas. It’s bold and loud, yet warm and elegant at the same time, symbolising our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits. PANTONE Living Coral embodies our desire for playful expression. p.26
This beautiful colour represents the fusion of modern life, is a nurturing colour that appears in the natural surroundings and at the same time, displays lively presence within social media. PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral is orangish coral hue with a golden undertone. We rely so much on social media and technology in interaction, which has made us distant and less empathic. Therefore, Living Coral reminds us to take care of each other, nurture intimacy and authentic connection. This colour is supposed to have “humanizing” factor, said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of Pantone. “Living Coral - even the name is energetic and makes us reflect on the stunning beauty we find in nature,” said Pantone linking the choice of coral hue to two common themes ecosystems and climate change. “With consumers craving human interaction and social connection, the humanising and heartening qualities displayed by the convivial Pantone Living Coral hit a responsive chord”. Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Colour Institute The Colour of the Year 2019 represents corals and more generally talking oceans, consequently, it is a way to make us to reflect about the “devastating” effect the society on the environment.
The bright, pinky orange is certainly a fun, warm, and poppy colour choice to celebrate this year. Living Coral is a hymn to the positivity, and in 2019 we will see it express in infinite shapes, in design as well in fashion and it will be inspiration for designers and creatives. Designers have already been sharing some stellar works inspired by this coral hue during the SS19 Fashion shows: red coral looks and dresses with feathers in red and orange with Marc Jacobs, coral top and headband with Miuccia Prada, bold coral dress with shells in Altuzarra catwalk, avant-garde top with Sacai and Chanel with its accessories.
This colour is linked to tactility and human connection so itâ€™s perfect in shag rugs, cozy blankets and lush upholsteries to create a warm and friendly feeling at home, also this hue adds, without overdo, a dramatic pop of colour to any room setting. It matched beautifully with fresh white, soft greys and along with lighter woods, also it is particularly fascinating when it is combined with light blues and dirty purples, creating and instilling a sense of positivity and lightness idyllic. Leave your mark by inspiring with warm, tropical and contemporary atmosphere thanks to a cool matching of the trendiest colours.
A retro taste in trend with the ultimate vintage aesthetic but also with a trendy and contemporary appeal, Living Coral will set up intimate environments full of personality. So which is the best way to incorporate this enchanting hue, so delicate and challenging into our home decor? Itâ€™s expression of a lively nature but donâ€™t be frightened of its brightness. Living Coral is softer than coral, then easier to use in interiors. Its warm and comfortable hues will be perfect to jazz up your walls.

Pantone’s 2019 Colour of the Year is more versatile than you might think. This coral can be used in any interior design, from mid-century modern to liberty, and also it’s a fun accent colour for boho styles. It’s beautiful pairing with contrast dusty and cold colours such as ice light blue, grey, mauve or even sage green. It’s perfect with brass home decorations, another big interior design trend.
| ph David Dw orkind
The palette ranges from pink to terracotta, peach and coral, combined with different shades of green from emerald to turquoise. The beauty of Living Coral shades will be emphasise - even more - thanks to a combination of frames and accessories in black. Too add brightness, some accents in warm metals and in natural green plants.

The Living Coral shade is perfect if combined with the typical nuances of the earth: the brown fallow, the khaki, the russet, the ecru and the dark brown. In these combinations will emerge the optimistic spirit of the coral and will be transmitted vitality and lightness to the environments. How this colour affects the interior design? The result can be surprising, sometimes even shocking. Furthermore, if used and dosed, even at lower doses, this coral shade can create relaxing and positive vibes, and at the same time a feeling of coziness and safety at your space. An unique colour, perfect to interpret the ethnic à la Frida Kahlo otherwise a mix & match style with recycled furniture, so trendy.

The most eclectic surfaces are affected too, in line with the main interior design diktat 2019. In fact, there are many materials in which the palette of Living Coral is fully used, ranging from the most pop and decisive ones up to the peaceful and romantic ones. Chairs and armchairs to match with linen and lamps, vases and even vintage decors given the 60s allure of this shade. Pantone’s Living Coral is generating a lot of buzz in the decor industry and it’s easy to see why. With the energy of orange paired with the softness of pink is unavoidable to infuse a feeling of lightness and warmth outlined by balance and elegance. Exquisite, a frivolous and feminine soul thanks to pink accent, but with a strong and confident personality flexible enough to adapt to any fussy. Living Coral is a nuance of impact to enrich the house with personality and charm.

4. Wearing a smokey eye for Fashion’s Night Out in NYC
As Victoria Beckham Limited announces new beauty range, we take a look back at some of the designer’s memorable beauty looks throughout her 25-years in the public eye
2. by Steve Finn_Getty Images
Designer Victoria Beckham once declared, ‘I believe you can achieve anything in life if you work hard enough to get it’. As living proof of that statement, Beckham’s impressive transformation from former Spice Girl and David’s other half to major player within the fashion realm continues to expand with announcement of the upcoming launch of Victoria Beckham Beauty set to debut in Autumn/Winter 2019. Tongues were wagging and rumors circulating back in 2018 when, much to the delight of her fans, Beckham revealed she was starting up a YouTube channel that would feature beauty tutorials. No stranger to using social media platforms for leverage, the beauty and wellness products will be sold exclusively through her official website, directly to consumers as previously done through the VB fashion line before she branched out into standalone stores.

What can be expected from the collection? Nowadays, Beckham exudes an elegance and penchant for luxury, evident in her minimal yet sophisticated and professional fashion line. Well-revered by critics and fashion editors (who can forget her video for Vogue’s 73 questions?), it’s no secret that she’s a fan of highend skincare products such as Dr. Lancer’s and La Mer’s. Can we expect products of this quality? VB says of the brand, “I want to take care of women inside and out, providing them with the must-have items in makeup, skincare, fragrance and wellness that I feel I need in my own life”. This isn’t Beckham’s first foray into beauty; her previous makeup range in collaboration with Estée Lauder was a sell-out. In fact, co-founder and CEO of Victoria Beckham Beauty is none other than Sarah Creal - the former Estée Lauder executive who helped in creating the original capsule collection. “I’m going to be asking women to tell me which products they want me to develop for them in the beauty and wellness arenas. It’s important for me to know what they want” reveals Beckham. The inclusion of ‘wellness’ in her statement could be telling - is chameleon Beckham (a fan of crystals and positive vibes) perhaps gearing towards the lifestyle area like Gwyneth’s Goop? Whilst news reports in 2018 were rife with details of her company’s financial losses, Londonbased Victoria

Beckham Limited (VBL) saw a 17% sales rise, suggesting that the business looks set to break even in the medium term. Let’s face it, Beckham has the kind of financial security that alludes most aspiring designers and can make all ideas come to life, yet she has been underestimated and faced skepticism since she announced embarking upon fashion a decade ago - you have to admire her sheer perseverance and mastery of reinvention. With huge appeal amongst fellow celebs (everyone who’s anyone has
worn her clothing items, from the Jenners to the British royal family) and VBL now boasts 400 stores in over 50 countries. The star recently collaborated with sportswear giant Reebok, partnered up with auction house Sotheby’s for their Old Masters sale and just gave her second show at London Fashion Week with her entire family in the front row. The woman means business. So, in high anticipation of the beauty range, we look back at a selection of her memorable looks… p.59
1. ‘Posh’ It was the look that caught the attention of a young David Beckham and the rest is showbiz history. As Posh Spice, a then ‘Victoria Adams’ stood out as the best-looking and chicest member of the iconic girl group. Fuller-faced in those days and heavy on the brown lipliner (outside the natural lip line), the eyebrows were thin and the eye makeup smoky. Hair was worn in a sleek bob and never out of place, whilst clothes were classic and usually black. 2. High Glamour Flash forward to 2004 and the Beckhams had undergone a style makeover, often coordinating for the red carpet. Her style around this period was indicative of her love for luxury but much more dazzling back then. Red lips and Bordeaux nails make for a bold look when teamed with the corset, whilst the blonde highlights lift her features. The glamour was complete with a sunkissed tan. 3. Queen of the WAGs The bag, the glasses, the hair – back in 2006, all were oversized. By this time, the signature pout had taken force and high maintenance was key. 4. Back to ‘Posh’: Reinvention takes hold A few years later, VB had big ideas. Desiring to be taken seriously in fashion, her look had matured. Returning to her natural dark brown hair color, in keeping with the fuller eyebrow trend of the time, Beckham had grown hers out
resulting in a more youthful appearance. The eye makeup is heavy but works well when paired with a creamy, nude lip whilst the skin looks fresh and effectively highlighted creating the illusion of fuller cheeks. 5. Royal Wedding No. 2 Looking elegant and at ease with her style, the simple, low ponytail with subtle makeup looks beautiful and appropriate for the occasion. Beckham’s features don’t require too much makeup and the few tweaks she has made to her beauty routine have opened up her eyes and created a softer appearance. 6. Today She’s found her winning look. Turning 45 this year, Beckham actually looks younger than she did over a decade ago. Considering she used to suffer from acne, her access to great products has revolutionized her skin which appears dewy and at times luminous. She continues to opt for a nude lip with a very subtle lining, whilst the beige eyeliner widens her eyes, further accentuated by the fuller, slightly arched brows. VB clearly knows what works for her face after years of reinvention – let’s see what she has to share in future.

And just like that, the Fall/ Winter 2019 runway season ended. In a whirlwind, it created another new batch of memorable fashion moments that impacted and inspired us all. Case in point: Christy Turlington returning to the runway after a two-decade absence for Marc Jacobs’ NYFW show. An appearance by Grace Jones for Tommy Hilfiger in Paris. Or then, Max Mara quoting Linda Evangelista in regards to their glamorous collection. Not to mention the fact that baby-Cindy, Kaia Gerber, was pretty much everywhere. Yes, there was the unmistakable scent of nostalgia in the air, largely evoked too by the garments themselves. We witnessed rehashing of seventies (Celine. Michael Kors), eighties (Max Mara) and nineties (Philosophy) styles with modern twists, as well as covetable collections from new and emerging talents. However, we have to address the main talking point amongst fashion folks that arrived like a thunderbolt on the opening day of MFW; the passing of Karl Lagerfeld. We grieved, reminisced upon his work and watched in anticipation as the flow of tributes poured in. All eyes were of course on Fendi and then Chanel who presented their shows as emotions ran high. Chanel’s snow-covered runway in Paris was undoubtedly the cherry on the cake of all of them – a stunning set, major stars and dear friends of the deceased designer out in full force and above all, an exceptionally beautiful and wholesome collection. A true Winter Wonderland. As we mourn what’s lost, we also look toward the future and continue to live in the moment with the excitement of shopping for the latest trends and putting together our wardrobe for the Fall. Spoilt for choice, we’ve selected ten of our predictions for the top trends that stood out that bit more:
TRENDS by Alys Jackman - continue to page 16 Here: Rebecca Minkoff backstage by Ashley Gallerani Opposite page, from up left: Emilio Pucci, Marni by Alessandro Lucioni / Gorunway.com Cushnie and Tadashi Shoji by Ashley Gallerani, Oscar de la Renta by Alessandro Lucioni / Gorunway.com
PLEATED SKIRTS Whether sparkling, metallic or with ruffles, pleated skirts never really left the trend arena and if you still don’t own one yet, now’s the time. A one-color, mid-length can be adapted to day or night time occasions on a practical level, yet it was the flowing, sheer and shiny skirts at the Fendi show that were a particular highlight.
ASYMMETRICAL NECKLINES Oscar de la Renta, Cushnie and Rosie Assoulin were just a few that provided that off-the-shoulder seductive look and proved that showing that small area of skin around the collar bones can be provocative, and unequivocally glamorous.
Whilst shoulder pads were once considered old-fashioned, the fashion weeks indicated a modern revival of the 1980s trend is to come. Max Mara brought them out during MFW where they featured on their killer coats and well-cut suits; an attitude-packed ode to power dressing that proved no one does it better. Typically masculine clothes with strong and striking shoulders were also seen for Balmain and Saint Laurent, juxtaposed with femininity and elegant sensuality.

PLAID All of the fashion weeks featured updated versions of the classic plaid look – that’s right, the pattern is not just for Scottish men or schoolgirls under the age of ten. Amongst the many and most notable looks were Christian Dior and Victoria Beckham, the latter of which undoubtedly offered up her best collection to date in London. In Paris, Dior demonstrated that the print can be versatile and has appeal across generations. Dior (left) by Alessandro Lucioni / Gorunway.com Lanvin (right) by Daniele Oberrauch / Gorunway.com p.74
CAPES Is there anything more elegant and dramatic than a sweeping cape? You may not have to be a superhero to wear one, but they definitely add a dramatic dash of regality to any outfit. MFW shows indicated that capes look set to become a huge trend this year, taking the look a step further on from the oversized scarves that were so popular in Fall 2018. Dolce & Gabbana showcased sumptuous and luxurious capes worthy of royalty whilst Max Mara’s were appropriate for high-end business attire infused with comfortability. Prada favored lace whilst a more laid-back, poncho-like look was showed off by Missoni.

STRIKING RED Whilst orange was a hit during NYFW, it was the show-stopping reds that caught our eye. Let’s talk Emporio; the collection at MFW incorporated a bold color palette and a lineup of varying red evening dresses with much desirability - the brand back at it’s best. At Balenciaga’s show there was something for everyone including a head-turning sharp, red suit which also adhered to the strong-shoulders trend we’ve been noting (not on this list). Burberry for the most part stuck to it’s usual beige, camel and taupe colors but the pops of red were vivid and distinct.

WAIST CINCHER BELTS
It’s common knowledge that this year, femininity is back in a big way; get ready to accentuate the waists, girls, as the next season’s belts are set to be narrow and strategically placed. Over in New York, Longchamp delivered a stunning show packed with Parisian attitude; lace teamed with a belt has never looked better. Matched with short skirts, the belts shaped the body in the best possible way. Tibi also used the waist belt to break up and embellish minimalist looks whilst in Paris, Chanel included the iconic CC-logo on theirs.

FORMAL PUFFER Both chic and warm, the puffer coats that featured on the runways reminded us that Winter can be just as sexy as Summer, if you dress for it right. Offering up the kind of coats that you’d want to keep on during a cocktail-party were Christian Siriano, Givenchy and Brandon Maxwell; eye-catching in such a way to make your presence felt and announce your arrival before even uttering a word.

ANIMAL PRINTS Leopard print will forever be a staple in our closets, but it looks like this is the year of the zebra! A range of animal prints were everywhere to be seen, but it was the emphasis on the zebra that really stood out expect herds of them making their way through your cities later this year.

NECK BOWS A bow tied around the neck can add a romantic touch or, in the case of Fendi, be highly dramatic. Traditionally seen as ladylike, a large neck bow is in fact a pièce de résistance that requires the right level of confidence and assurance that it meets well with the finished outfit. So despite the initial girly connotations, the bow perfectly matches well with the recurring theme of power dressing that showed up during the fashion weeks as it requires a strong woman to pull it off.

Photography, Production, Art Direction Les Mijotés Model Shaughnessy Brown c/o New York Models interviewed by Eleonora Moneta Style Bárbara Vélez Makeup Victor Noble Hair Style Amy Farid c/o Honey Artists Set Design Izzy Garcia Location DRIFT Studios NYC
What is fashion? For many it is unbridled luxury combined with glitter and precious objects; but it can also be synonymous with changes and expression of oneself. Shaughnessy Brown knows it well. Born in 1994, the young Shaughness, fascinated by the world of entertainment and catwalks, decided at the age of 15 to leave the hot Florida and move to the chaotic New York to pursue her dream. Her charm as a girl next door did not pass. She began to collaborate with several designers, taking her first photo shoots, including an editorial for Vogue Italia. Shaughnessy was realizing her dream, but her true nature was still hidden behind long brown hair. It was from the hair that her change started, the long hair made room for a neat little ‘70s helmet, a total black wardrobe and a collection of studded chokers and accessories. The new look so different from the previous
one made Shaughnessy even safer and more determined. This change was welcomed also in the fashion industry, so that Alessandro Michele chose her for the Gucci fashion show in 2016, during the New York Fashion Week. This great opportunity opened great travels and experiences to Shaughnessy. She collaborated on a project with Depeche Mode and even helped Rodarte to celebrate his tenth anniversary walking down his fall/winter 2016 catwalk. “I think it’s about being the person you are,” says Shaughnessy about her explosive success. Excited to have found herself, she faces life with light heartedness but also a lot of ambition. Fun, fresh and full of eccentric charm is also perceived in the shots made for LATEST. With an elegant yet modern style, Shaughnessy decided to show her artistic maturity combined with a strong personality.
All the way from sunny Florida to hectic heart of New York City, how did you deal with this change? Needed a way out in that period, and when I really thought to move this opportunity presented itself, so I went all in. Have you always dreamt to be a model? Never a dream to model’, but an alternative way I saw this was an opportunity to stand for myself, collaborate and create characters of who I am. Always wanted to be a part of the creation process. I have the feeling that through clothing and my art drawings I can look at the world and style from a new point of view, a never seen before ones. If you did not have this opportunity in the fashion world, what would you liked to do? Traveling the world regardless, continuing studying art therapy and creating what I feel right. A trivial question, but from a particular personality like yours we expect an equally unusual answer. What is fashion for you? How do you feel it? Fashion I believe is confidence and being fearless in whatever you put yourself in
wearing. Whether top designer, or articles put together sparingly by various cheap stores, is an external expression of ourselves. So own it! “Black is such a happy colour”, is black just a colour or a way of life for you? Black can be an expression, it’s the design and pieces you put together to make it your own. Through color, expression can come in many forms. How do you live changes? Do they scare you or are you fascinated? The only thing that’s constant is change, so it fascinates me the most. I’ve learned the best way to live through it to constantly move and evolve while holding down your personal morals and mindset to keep you grounded. Like any model, travel is not lacking in your life. What can you not give up on your travels? Authentic collaborations with people from all around the world - and endless culture, food and experiences along the way that present themselves through my trips for work. No schooling would have given me that experience.

ACCESSORIES TRIUMPH by Marta Forgione
eing “fashionable” also means being interested in details. So, what better triumph for accessories than to show them during fashion weeks? A sea of people poured into the street in the most disparate looks; extreme eccentricity or careful search for a modern elegance, all super paparazzato by the many photographers who crowd around the locations of the various shows, hoping to shoot the celebrities. It’s here that the ring, the sunglasses, the signed micro handbags will have the right exposure compared to the normality in which they maybe can go unnoticed. And if we think of the importance of street style in the search for future trends by brands and companies, it is clear why it is so fundamental for a fashion lover to follow not only fashion shows during fashion weeks but also all what happens in the streets.

A CASE OF COUNTERCULTURE
Cargo pants have long been on the fashion horizon, but they have officially returned to the runway from their late 90s hiatus. In the case of the cargo, however, the trend-setting designers were late to the craze. A number of brands like Urban Outfitters and I Am Gia have been stocking these trousers for quite some time and celebrities like the Kardashian/Jenner family have already been seen working this trend in candid paparazzi photos. In fact, the cargo comeback is the perfect example of how streetwear and skate culture have gone from the bottom up to the highs of fashion. Cargo pants were undeniably an unappealing concept just a few short year ago; they were to be worn camping or on a construction site, but nowhere else.
quest to be unique and to stand out, cargo pants have become trendy and widespread.
However, what seen on the runway have been revised, edited and tailored to high fashion standards. There are not your uncle’s cargo pants. Ganni’s Spring/Summer 2019 show, for example, showed multiple variations such as colour blocked, quilted and tie-dyed pants for a camper-aesthetic in a city girl version who’s reaching for their wallets. Bella Hadid wore a hot pink three-quarter length pant for Prabal Gurung’s show and Jonathan Simkhai also offered one in white. Ralph Lauren was also one of many brands who went for fitted pants, surprising many with their interest in utility trousers. With the influx of fashion influencers and celebrity style So how did they come back in fashion? Well, like icons, it seems fashion week has met its match. any good counterculture getup, it came from Mini fashion revolutions have always come from subcultures of fashion. Opposing the mainstream counterculture fashion and to be truly up-to-date fashion of skinny jeans and Levi’s, cargo pants you have to look at what the greater trends in were made popular by street fashion: people who society to understand the rise and fall of various still remembered the 90s hip-hop scene and trends. Just as the British working class made Dr skaters who saw their clothing as an opposition Martens a fashion statement, street to high fashion. The skateboard company Thrasher culture has made cargo pants cool again. became one of the most copied brand logos in So collect all your keys, sunglasses, wallets and fashion because they represented the incrowd as phone chargers because these trendy trousers well as the outcasts. Now it seems cargo pants have us swooning in pocket-envy have become a similar symbol in fashion. In the

As We Mourn the Loss of Karl Lagerfeld, whatâ€™s next for the brands he left BEHIND?
by Alys Jackman
t was 19th February, 2019; the first day of proceedings for Milan Fashion Week, the most glamorous of all: another week in which established and emerging members of the fashion industry from all over the globe had come to unite... but the day soon become tinged with sadness. After dominating high fashion for over half a century, the iconic couturier Karl Lagerfeld, whose name is synonymous with Chanel, had passed away that morning at the age of 85.
Only a week after he made headlines and when speculations started fueling about his health due to missing Chanel’s haute couture shows in Paris (it was his first absence in recent memory), Karl had tapped powerhouse editorin-chief of CR Fashion Book and style icon, Carine Roitfeld, to team up as a permanent collaborator for his namesake brand. Having previously collaborated on the Karl Lagerfeld for H&M line way back in 2004 with much success, and also The Little Black Jacket, it’s clear that he had a great respect for his longtime friend. Through a company announcement, the fashion veteran stated, “[Carine Roitfeld] knows what she wants; she has a vision and she states her vision... She is actually what she seems to be; she matches her image, she fits in her universe, and she is a perfect match for Karl Lagerfeld.”
As with every legend, Karl had a signature look that he stuck to throughout the years. His skinny black suits, the ponytail, the glasses – in an age rife with new talent, he was one of the enduring classics. The Chanel Flap Bag of designers. Inimitable, the German-born designer had been the creative force behind the revival of the brand (nearly in extinction back in the eighties). Whilst the fashion house has a huge void to fill without him, they’ve already named Virginie Viard as his successor. Though relatively unknown, she has in fact been Lagerfeld’s right-hand woman for more than thirty years and Chanel’s creative studio director – seemingly through no coincidence he had already begun introducing her to the public in recent months. Carine Roitfeld & Karl by Venturelli/WireImage Opposite page: Lagerfeld’s sketch for Roitfeld
Karl with his beloved Choupette
For those less familiar with the work of Carine, she is in essence fashion royalty - the epitome of Parisian chic. The former editor-in-chief of French Vogue broke into the industry as a model and went on to work as a muse and consultant for Yves Saint Laurent and Tom Ford (then Creative Director for Gucci) for many years. As a stylist she created memorable, smoldering campaigns working alongside Mario Testino as one half of a photographic dream team. And, still rocking that edgy-bombshell style at 60 years old (think pencil skirts and Alaia stilettos), is a reminder that the French just do it better. The new partnership was to be unveiled with “The Edit by Carine Roitfeld” in September, comprising of “essential pieces” selected from the designer’s autumn/winter 2019 collection. We await further announcement. Fendi have released a heartfelt statement citing Karl’s “ability to rejuvenate at all times, to taste
all the arts, to not overlook any style, along with a persistent refusal to turn to his past.” Silvia Venturini Fendi, who appeared deeply affected, continued, “I will miss him deeply and always carry with me the memories of our days together”. His last collection for the brand will be shown on Thursday in Milan. As for Choupette? Whilst it’s unclear who she’ll live with, we’re sure she’ll be in good hands the photogenic cat is said to have made several million from modeling and is set to inherit some of Lagerfeld’s fortune. Adored by many, whilst for others he was deliciously offensive, we’re sure to expect a series of tributes and announcements in the weeks to follow. In a sea of unforgettable words from a man who shaped fashion legacy, let’s not forget this: “Fashion does not have to prove that it is serious. It is the proof that intelligent frivolity can be something creative and positive.”
Composition No. III, with Red, Blue, Yellow, and Black (1929) sold for $50.6 million, twice its high estimate of $25 million. It set a new record for the artist
he term “De Stijl” in Dutch means “style”. Known also as Neoplasticism, we are talking about an artistic trend that began in the Netherlands in 1917 with a manifesto, De Stijl precisely, published by Piet Mondrian and Theo van Doesburg to describe their art which included a search for abstraction, geometry and essentiality. Mondrian’s paintings, in his continuous search for balance and simplicity, actually hide a great job towards his idea of perfection, far from being a fast and “simple” as it is often described by those who do not appreciate very much ‘modern Art’. It is precisely Mondrian who has inspired team of the next editorial. A search for lines, voids, balance, color, with an architectural rendering.

DESIGNER, WHAT A PASSION! by Eleonora Moneta
The fashion industry opens its doors to actresses, singers and television stars. Many â€œmade in the USAâ€? showbiz have decided to create exclusive collections of clothing, but not only. The First was Gwen Stefani, singer and mother of three children, in 2003 created L.A.M.B, an acronym in homage to the debut of her album Love. Angel. Music. Baby. The line includes accessories such as: bags, watches, perfumes and shoes. Following her way a few years later the two most famous blonde twins, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, launched The Row. Born in New York,

the clothing line initially featured 7 garments. Three years after TheRow’s success, the two famous New York twins launched Elizabeth and James, names of the two Olsen brothers. The label distinguished itself compared to the first for the decidedly cheaper cost of accessories and garments. From pop star to fashion designer, it is the route that Victoria Beckham travelled. The famous Spice Girl in 2008 created Victoria by Victoria Beckham, shown during the New York fashion week, immediately enjoyed the success hoped for, so much so that a single-brand store was opened in the heart of London. Do you love sports and want to feel comfortable but at the same time fashionable? Beyoncé thought of you! The Ivy Prank brand, launched in 2016, has been very successful, not only for the singer’s fans but also for the streetwear style that is the common thread for the entire collection. Accessories, children’s and pet’s clothings, is what Ellen DeGeneres thought, in creating her
collection in 2015. The reason for her choice? Donate part of the benefits to the #BeKindToElephants campaign. But women are not alone in experiencing the world of creation and design. Kanye West in 2015 has designed his first line with the collaboration of Adidas. The debut of the collection coincided with the release of his latest album, The Life of Pablo. The question is: is fashion design a marketing strategy or a real passion? Last but not least, Rihanna, who in 2018 during New York Fashion Week, created a real show showing her Savage x Fenty collection. The line of clothing and lingerie celebrates women in all their shapes and sizes, going against the mainstream of traditional fashion. The fusion between fashion, cinema and music will surely reserve surprises in the future. We just have to wait for another creative idea of our
