Valentino le Paris in 1959 to open a fashion house in Rome. He modeled his business on the grand houses he had seen in Paris. In his early shows, Valentino quickly gained recognition for his red dresses, in a shade that became widely known as "Valentino red." In 1960, Valentino met Giancarlo Giammei in Rome. Giammei, an architecture student, quickly became Valentino's partner, both professionally and romantically. Together, the pair developed Valentino SpA into an internationally recognized brand. Valentino's international debut took place in 1962, at the Pii Palace in Florence. The show cemented the designer's reputation and aracted the aention of socialites and aristocratic women from around the world. Within a few years, Valentino's designs were considered the pinnacle of Italian couture. In 1967, he received the prestigious Neiman Marcus Fashion Award. His client list included the Begum Aga Khan, Queen Paola of Belgium and movie stars Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn.

VALENTINO

Among Valentino's most prominent clients was Jacqueline Kennedy. Kennedy developed an interest in the designer's work aî…šer admiring friends in several Valentino ensembles. In 1964, Kennedy ordered six dresses in black and white, which she wore during the year following the assassination of her husband, President John F. Kennedy. She would remain a friend and a client from that point on, linking the Valentino name to her own iconic status in the fashion world. Valentino also designed the dress that Kennedy wore when she wed Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis in 1968. While maintaining strong ties to Florence and Rome, Valentino spent much of the 1970s in New York. In addition to his friendship with Jackie Kennedy, he became close friends with artists such as Andy Warhol. Over the course of his career, Valentino's primary lines have been Valentino, Valentino Garavani, Valentino Roma and R.E.D. Valentino.

Iris van Herpen

Elie Saab

Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen revealed  3D-printed garments and accessories “grown” with magnets during her ready-to-wear show in Paris. “Magnetic Motion” was the title of the Dutch designer’s show and it was inspired by the Large Hadron Collider aer she visited CERN (The world’s largest particle physics laboratory)  in Switzerland earlier this year.

Elie Saab’s model army walked to a military beat – the designer exchanged his signature fairytale romance for something darker, harder and tougher, “the way of the woods”, we were told. So structure and gilded buons were all key, as was a khaki dark colour palee on trailing capes and stand-up straight collars. There was lots of fur trim on coats made in mind for protecting you from whatever the forest may have on offer hiding among it.

Giorgio Armani showcased his Haute Couture at the Palais de Tokyo, with a collection that opened with a range of small pea jackets and shorts in paerned fabrics with a quilted effect. These were then followed by short jackets with three-quarter length sleeves and crape woolen trousers, which demonstrate a simplicity and grand elegance.

VIKTOR &ROLF They wear the same clothes; they finish each other’s sentences, and strut their stuff down the catwalk for their own menswear collections. Their brand features both names side by side; they oen play at being each other’s twin with humour, some might find this strange, others pure genius. But they also form a true duo, with an amazing imagination and creativity like no other, which turn the classical rules of luxurious fashion and beauty upside down on its head. The Dutch duo Viktor Horsting, born 27 May 1969, and Rolf Snoeren who was born 19 December, 1969, both hail from the Netherlands where they were raised. They met whilst both aending the renowned Arnhem Academy of Art and Design; but they did not begin working together until aer their graduation. It was in 1992 that they packed up their bags and moved to Paris. (The House of Viktor & Rolf, Caroline Evans and Susannah Frankel, Merrel 2008) They began interning for brands such as Maison Martin Margiela, and designed their own clothes in spare time on the evenings, then presenting them in the art circuit, soon making a name for themselves winning the Festival d’Hyeres prize in 1993. Their brand makes

the link between couture fashion and art seamlessly, puing deep concepts and showmanship in their work. Viktor & Rolf’s first clothing collection was shown at a competition called Salon European des Jeunes Stylistes in 1993. The collection consisted of ten looks, which comprised of pre-existing pieces from garments blended together to form a sort of clothing collage, in turn creating new clothing. It was partly made from old shirts and suits found in flea markets, stitched back together and distorted. Very reminiscent of their former employer Martin Margiela, who was part of the Antwerp group, who were very much linked to the emergence of deconstruction fashion which was a big trend of that particular era, the 1990’s.

VIKTOR &ROLF Their close link to the art scene, presenting four collections in experimental art exhibitions, led them to show their first Haute Couture collection Spring/Summer 1998. One example of their unusual but spectacular approach to fashion was their entirely topsy-turvy show in fall of 1999, with upside-down dresses and an ear-spliing backwards soundtrack, a provocative all-black show including the models’ faces, and a presentation featuring, on a revolving turntable, a single model who was layered in look aer look like a Russian doll.

VIKTOR &ROLF

In this same year, 1999, they tell Vogue they intend to step into the world of ready to wear as well as haute couture, Snoeren saying, “We have the same dream as Calvin Klein, only we want to realize it on our own terms,”. Despite Viktor & Rolf’s obvious success, couture can’t pay their bills. Vogue noted that less than half of their fanciful creations have been sold to paying customers. Horsting and Snoeren tell The New York Times that they had been surviving “on a mix of government grants, museum sales, and goodwill.” So it is not surprising they had to turn their aentions away from their couture dreams. It was in May of 2000 that their first ready to wear collection was shown, with the likes of Andre Leon Talley singing their praises, which was a huge success. The collection was panoply of red, white, and blue stars and stripes presented via posters done in a propaganda style featuring Sudanese model Alek Wek that are plastered on the showroom walls. The pair was way ahead of their time sending spectators home with a CD-ROM of their sportswear debut; it wouldn’t be for another decade that the flash drive look books that we know, will eventually become a common appearance in the fashion industry. Later in October 2003, A ten-year Viktor & Rolf retrospective opens at Paris’s Musée de la Mode et du Textile, giving them a lile taster of their former more artistic based roots. Horsting and Snoeren co-curate the displays, selecting black walls and compiling an exhibit catalogue filled with previous press coverage.

VIKTOR &ROLF Though early on they were known for wowing the fashion press but not selling a stitch, Horsting and Snoeren have since tapped into their commercial potential. In July 2005, aer three years of talks with French beauty giant L’Oréal, V&R drops its first real fragrance, Flowerbomb, an oriental bouquet of Sambac jasmine, Caleya orchid, and green tea packaged in a glass grenade shaped bole. That same year, the house’s highly anticipated H&M capsule collection drew frenzied crowds for their collaboration with fast-fashion retailer H&M, their opening-day sales were projected at a minimum of $1 million, which isn’t too shabby to say they were only scraping by not so many years before. The campaign advertisements featured Brazilian fembot model Raquel Zimmermann, pictured as a bride in a surrealist wedding to double grooms.

VIKTOR &ROLF In 2008 the pair sold a controlling stake of its business to Diesel owner Renzo Rosso. “We have high ambitions,” Snoeren commented to The New York Times, which also reported their plans to open five more boutiques within the next few years, hence why they sold a percentage of the company to raise funds for further expansion. The next few years were not their best fashion wise, with critics not shy from expressing their luke warm feelings towards their collections in 2011, the NYTimes.com critic in particular saying the pair “live on their own planet,” So the pair aempted to move towards a more mature collection with a 1930s-inspired fall set, sending models out in printed silk pyjamas and Veronica Lake waves. But conceptual cohesiveness remains a problem, as old motifs make less successful return appearances. Although they strive to not be part of the main stream fashion cycle it seems they have fall victim to their own enemy. www.viktor-rolf.com

LUXURY BEAUTY

Christian Louboutin Beauty The story started with a stroke of red nail colour and the legend continues 22 years later. Over the years Christian realised that his understanding of femininity and elegance had gone beyond shoes. People were already embracing the spirit of the brand, so stepping into beauty was natural for Louboutin. A milestone in the history of Christian Louboutin is the way he created 'Pensée', a shoe designed in 1992 influenced by Warhol and the Pop Art movement. Having drawn the shoe perfectly to his satisfaction, he was disappointed when he saw the prototype. Something was missing, even though it was very close to the initial drawing.While staring at the prototype he saw his assistant painting her nails at her desk next to him. He sponteneously grabbed the nail polish and proceeded to paint the sole of the shoe. He liked it... HE LOVED IT.... ET VOILA! The signature red sole was born. Like the nail polishes before them, the lipsticks are designed as objects of desire as much as they are colour cosmetics - in vial-like golden packaging with ribbon ties. The 38 colours are available as Silky Satin, Velvet Mae and Sheer Voile finishes - including a classic crimson, of course. www.christianlouboutin.com

Haute couture. Luxury homeware. Iconic luxury retailer Harrods has long been a lavish shopper's paradise for those with discerning taste. Now those with a taste for exquisite jewels can make a beeline for Harrods’ iconic Knightsbridge department store on Brompton Road, where the boutique façade of its Fine Jewellery Room has been newly punctuated with the distinctive icon motif of Graff Diamonds.

Step into the space, and you'll see an elaborate Bohemia Crystal chandelier above you with hundreds of hand-blown glass spheres in gold, bronze and silver notes suspending from the ceiling, lighting up the entire boutique and its fine display of jewellery pieces.


Brushed gold and glass showcases — displaying opulent diamonds and gemstones — line the boutique store walls, clad with bedazzlingly golden dichroic glass mirrors. Richly toned American walnut paneled walls and a monochrome-hued floor of Cipolino, Pentelikon and Verde Assoluto marble add a fine sheen to the store interiors.

This is Graff Diamonds' gorgeously fied expanded store — all 1242 sq  of it — at Harrods. Helmed by Graff’s in-house Monaco-based interior design team, the materials for the store were sourced from all across the world.

As Graff chief executive officer Francois Graff comments of the Harrods store that first launched last year before its current expanded location, “The significantly expanded store will enable our clientele to further experience the exemplary crasmanship incorporated into our exceptional jewels and innovative timepieces from Graff Luxury Watches."

With over five decades at the height of the luxury jewellery industry, the 1960-founded diamond brand remains as a family business. Graff Diamonds has reputedly handled more diamonds of rarity and beauty than any other jeweller in the world.


Notably, four of the five largest diamonds to be uncovered in this century were cut and polished by it. In the last decade, it has also expanded to include a luxury watch business since 2008 with patented diamond seings.

In 2016, the brand expansion will see Graff's global network span across 55 stores. At Harrods, two dedicated VIP rooms will also be introduced, says Harrods fashion director Helen David.

VIP FASHION COUTURE

Louis Vuion was a French entrepreneur and designer whose name has become iconic in the fashion world.

LOUIS VUITTO The world knows that some brands provide high quality fashion products and one such well-known brand is named aer the French entrepreneur, Louis Vuion. He was not only a businessman, but a designer as well. Before establishing this world famous company, he use to make trunks for Napoleon‘s wife. Vuion belonged to a laboring-class family and his ancestors were milliners, farmers, carpenters and joiners unlike him. At the age of ten, his mother died and father remarried soon. Vuion’s stepmother was harsh, wicked and severe just like the one seen in Cindrella. However, he was a

| 76 |

headstrong and willful child, who escaped, from his stepmother’s antagonizing, to Paris in 1835 when he was fourteen years old. Along the way to the city from his hometown Anchay, Vuion did several unusual jobs to gather enough money for his food. He rested wherever he found shelter. It took him two years to reach the capital of France. At the time, the city was surrounded by the different effects of the industrial revolution – some were good like rapid development of the city, and some were as bad as a distressing plague and dismal poverty.

LOUIS VUITTON | 78 |

In Paris, Vuion in his teenage years worked as a trainee in Monsieur Marechal‘s workshop of box making and packing. This was a highly respectable cra in nineteenth century Europe. In a few years, Vuion became one of the best practitioners of this new skill among the fashion lovers of Paris. In 1852, Louis Vuion benefited a lot from the restoration of the French Kingdom under the rule of Napolean III. His wife Eugenie de Montijo, France’s Empress hired Louis Vuion to work privately as her box packer and maker. This wonderful opportunity became a doorway to success for Vuion and he received assignments from royal and elite clientele throughout his life.

Two years later, Vuion got married to ClemenceEmilie Parriaux. When he le Marechal’s shop, he opened his own shop of the same business of box manufacturing. In 1958, he introduced a revolutionary shaped trunks to the market and it became a hit. The new design was loved and the demand increased for these convenient and innovative trunks so much that Vuion expanded his workshop and business in Paris.

In 1867 at Exposition Universelle, Vuion won a bronze medal. It was an international show which Napolean organized in Paris and it further accelerated Vuion’s work popularity. However, Vuion’s shop was destroyed and looted between 1870 and 71. This happened while the FrancoPrussian War was in progress and once it ended, Vuion re-established his workshop in an upperclass area in Paris.

In 1872, he introduced a new design of trunks with a red and beige stripe. The elite class Parisians were aracted to Louis Vuion’s latest creation and his brand sustained a position as offering luxurious and quality trunks. In 1889, he was given a grand prize and a gold medal at the same event, Exposition Universelle. This again strengthened Vuion’s position in the market and boosted his work’s popularity.

FASHION NEWS Alexander McQueen references Maharajas, the swinging sixties and dandy irreverence for SS17 Rather than adhering to the usual schedule of shows on the appointed fashion week, Alexander McQueen chose to present their SS17 menswear collection through emotive photography and imagery. Shot by Julia Hea, the collection is an amalgamation of elements from two major influences: London during the swinging sixties and images of a dusty exotic world. Using traditional, sharp cut tailoring techniques from Savile Rowe, at first in muted shades, and then moving into more opulent ones, McQueen took inspiration from India during the reign of the British Empire and contrasted that with popular styles taken from the swinging sixties. The iconography and colour palee of that time is fully embraced, from the opulent rich yellows and safari greens and browns to a sun-bleached leopard print. Jewellery fit for a Maharaja is also part of the collection, adorning both ears and faces, alluding to the lavishness of that time and the lavishness that was such an integral part of McQueen’s inspiration. The sixties references add a dandified element of fun to the collection, whilst the use of paisley and a bright red tailored suit draw to mind images of Carnaby Street at it’s peak. www.alexandermcqueen.net

Inside Dior's new home One imagines the architect Peter Marino breathed a sigh of relief when he accepted the task of designing Christian Dior's new flagship store on London's New Bond Street. Charged with creating voluptuary shopping destinations for virtually every megabrand on Bond street - Chanel, Louis Vuion, Bulgari, ad infinitum - he must occasionally run out of suitably sybartitic ideas. But decorating briefs don't come much more straight-forward than a prophetic bon mot from Christian Dior: "The tones of grey, pale turquoise and pink will prevail". The House of Dior on New Bond Street is indeed a paean to grey. Fiy shades? More like five hundred, washed over four floors and a winter garden that's filled with trellises of jasmine. Dashes of pink come in Baby Dior's bee-printed wallpaper, and turquoise in the light installations that illuminate the stately staircase. Add to that specially commissioned art, including sculptures by Tony Cragg and Rado Kirov; a collaboration with artist, Mark Quinn, comprising a collection of handbags featuring his work; three private VIP shopping areas; a demimeasure floor for Dior Homme; a dedicated shoe gallery; and endless, giant, squashy silver sofas, and you've got a retail temple that speaks of inordinate wealth, and invites those possessed of it to partake in the party. www.dior.com

Berluti to offer select shoes for women The luxury men’s brand is to introduce five of its most emblematic shoes adapted to women’s feet this September at Le Bon Marché, the Le Bank department store. (Both the brand and the store are owned by luxury giant LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuion.) These include the Alessandro lace-up and the Andy, the laer a loafer named aer Andy Warhol. Berluti also downsized its Un Jour briefcase and added a cross-body strap, rounding out the women’s range. In the past, Berluti has shod many famous women in bespoke shoes including Pai Smith, Greta Garbo and Sophie Marceau. www.berluti.com

Fendi x Thierry Lasry It’s finally sunny again, which means that it’s time to get shopping for your next statement sunglasses. Cue the gorgeous new Fendi and Thierry Lasry collaboration. This capsule collection is the sunglasses range we’ve been dreaming of: it blends together Fendi’s luxury qualities with Thierry Lasry’s statement design style to create the brightest and cutest sunglasses for this season. The designs are fun, retro-inspired, flat-fronted eyewear that will be your favourite sunglasses this summer. Inspired by Lasry’s “back-to-the-future” thinking, this capsule collection is the perfect luxuryfun hybrid. Fendi have done it again.

To celebrate the release of the collection, Fendi and Lasry have created a super-cute video, featuring the equally super-cute blogger/stylist/model/singer Kristina Bazan (founder of kayture.com). The elegant atmosphere that Bazan is in is brightened up by colourful cartoon graphics which match the shades of the eyewear. Surrounded by adorable stylised flowers, abstract shapes, bright rays of light (including turquoise), stars, whirlpools and bubbles and a pink painted catwalk that follows Bazan as she dances around, the video wonderfully represents the fun, sweet, super-cute and sophisticated sunglasses collection that Fendi and Thierry Lasry have created. We want them all.. www.fendi.com/nl/woman/thierry-lasry-for-fendi.html

Giorgio Armani Resort 2017 For resort, Giorgio Armani celebrated some of his iconic past styles — those men’s wearinspired, bold yet fluid looks that made so many women feel so empowered by design back in the Eighties, Nineties and still today. They included his supple jackets with pronounced shoulders, developed for this collection in a range of lightweight fabrics, from linen and silk blends to viscose.

They came matched with featherweight pleated pants, all cut in comfortable, wide-leg silhouees. Armani also embraced a relaxed approach for evening, as in graphically paerned, pajamalike suits craed from textured fabrics. Balancing their somewhat mannish aitude were some feminine and fun-glam options, including a tulle romper embroidered with sequins in a variety of sizes. www.armani.com/gb/giorgioarmani

Naoto Fukasawa designs stripped-back interior for Homme Plissé Issey Miyake store Japanese industrial designer Naoto Fukasawa has transformed the interior of a concrete building in Tokyo into a space for fashion designer Issey Miyake's pleated menswear collection The store, which is located in the Daikanyama area of Tokyo, will sell the Japanese designer's Homme Plissé range, a menswear collection created using Miyake's signature pleating technique. Fukasawa's main intervention into the building was to add thin, deep beams across the ceiling that intersect at various points.

"The building, in the form of a trapezoid concrete box, had no beams," said Fukasawa. "Thin wide beams were consequently passed through, thus partitioning the structure into a space above people's line of sight and a space below." Clothes hanging from each of these beams are generously spaced and organised according to colour and fit. Issey Miyake was set up by its namesake founder and fashion designer in the 1970s. Examples of the brand's innovative fabric-folding techniques include a range of clothes that expand from twodimensional geometric shapes into structured shirts, skirts, pants and dresses.

LAN

Milan has several shopping streets and distinct retail districts, many of which have their own specialities. From luxury goods in Via della Spiga to quirky finds in Via Solferino, to large shopping centres like Serravalle Outlet, shopping lovers can easily while away an hour, an aernoon or a whole day shopping in Milan. Here's our guide to Milan's top luxury shopping areas.

Quadrilatero della Moda The ‘Quadrilatero della moda’ – so named because it is closed between four important streets - Via Montenapoleone, Via Manzoni, Via della Spiga and Corso Venezia – is famous for its luxury shops and ateliers, fashion boutiques, jewellery stores and showrooms. Best known as the Fashion District, it is located in the centre of Milan and it is one of the 15 most expensive and prestigious streets of the world. Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Armani, Fendi, Tiffany, Boega Veneta, Chanel, Bulgari, Cartier, Gucci, Gianfranco Ferré, Valentino and Prada are just some of the brands that you can find along the streets of this awesome neighbourhood.

Corso Como Known worldwide as the home of 10 Corso Como – the concept store created by the fashion editor Carla Sozzani, sister of Franca Sozzani, Vogue Italia’s Editor-in-Chief – Corso Como is the place to go if you want to see a Milan’s fashion institution. 10 Corso Como is an innovative concept store that combines art and fashion. Art gallery, fashion store, café, bookstore and boutique hotel, 10 Corso Como is still influential as it was 25 years ago when it was launched.

The Brera District This is the neighbourhood where to go for a sophisticated shopping experience. Known for the Brera Academy of Fine Arts and its art galleries, the Brera district is full of unexpected and eccentric shops, small boutiques, café and antiques stores between Via Brera, Via Solferino, Via Madonnina and via Fiori Chiari. Not to be missed is the Mercatone dell’Antiquariato, which takes place on the third Saturday of each month and where artists and designers sell their artworks.

VERSACE A designer to celebrities and royalty such as Princess Diana, Gianni Versace brought vitality and art to an industry considered out of touch with the street.

| 94 |

Versace became known for his glamorous styles, producing a range of siren dresses that became his trademark. He oen used innovative materials such as aluminum mesh or cuing-edge techniques like "neo-couture" laser technology to fuse leather and rubber. The head of Medusa was also a recurring image on many of his clothing items and accessories. He launched his first couture collection in 1989 and added two clothing lines, Versus and Instante, to his business in the '90s.

One of his most famous creations was a black dress held together at the sides by gold safety pins; worn by Elizabeth Hurley at a movie premiere in 1994, the dress helped make the actress a star. Versace developed strong relationships with a number of stars and supermodels, including Elton John, Madonna and Naomi Campbell. As Anna Wintour told The New York Times, Versace "was the first to realize the value of celebrity in the front row, and the value of the supermodel, and put fashion on an international media platform." www.versace.com

Creed The House of Creed releases Royal Mayfair, a vaulted scent that honors the Duke of Windsor, the famed British royal synonymous with taking risks in life, love and style who le a lasting impression on the history of men’s fashion. An homage to sartorial icons who push traditional fashion boundaries, Royal Mayfair captures the spirit of these trend seers through this cult fragrance. Nearly 80 years aer its original commission, Royal Mayfair debuts as one of the brand’s most coveted accords and significant men’s launches since Aventus in 2010, at a time when menswear is more prominent than ever. Known as London’s most posh neighborhood, Mayfair was once the preserve of art dealers, ladies who lunch and gentlemen with a penchant for bespoke suits, cigars and rifles – indeed, you can still shop these sundries.

Today, Mayfair continues to thrive as one of the globe’s most desirable fashion hubs, toting highend labels that aract the super-stylish and elite. Originally reintroduced as Windsor in 2009 with several very limited reissues in 2010 and 2011, the aptly named Royal Mayfair celebrates all men of style and the heralded neighborhood that not only served as the to-go for men’s fashion, but also the location on Mount Street of our one and only Creed boutique debuting this June. “Royal Mayfair is one of the most modern accords that truly transcends decades,” shares Olivier Creed, Sixth Generation Master Perfumer at The House of Creed. “We know our clients are passionate about this scent and feel strongly it is important for them to be able to experience it permanently.” www.creedfragrances.co.uk

TISTA  An Italian-French fashion designer, Giambaista Valli was born and raised in the beautiful and historic city of Rome. His haute couture and prêt-a-porter collections are presented in the Paris Fashion Week, each year.

Valli graduated from Liceo in bachelor of art degree. Things that persuaded him to enroll in the Instituto Europeo del Design in 1986 include influences and inspirations from his city, Roman roots, Michelangelo Antonioni movies, Yves Saint Laurent, and Gruau drawings. A year aer this, he started off with a foundation illustration course at Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design in London. On returning to Italy, he worked in Roberto Capucci’s studio as an assistant and there Valli was introduced to striking haute couture plus the vivid colors of the master of Rome. In 1990, when two years passed working at Capucci, the Fendi luxury brand called Valli to become the senior designer of their Fendissime collection. Following this invitation, he experimented with ready-to-wear clothes in landscape of hip and young Roman customers.

Restlessly travelling between his many collections, Valli continuously filled his mind and imagination with several influences. Different kinds of strong and talented women inspired him on the course of his fashion design career. In 1995, he relocated to Milan where he was appointed as the Senior Designer of Krizia female wear by Krizia-Mariuccia Mandelli. Aer two years, his two biggest dreams came true. One was to move to his favorite city Paris and to flaunt his sensibilities when meeting Emanuel Ungaro.

Within a few years, he launched his personal collection and in 2005, he held his debut solo exhibition in Paris. Hence, Giambaista Valli label was born! His first store was opened in Boissy d’Anglas Rue in 2010. The boutique is dedicated to Valli’s ready-to-wear line including jewelry, bags, shoes, accessories and furs. The label has over 235 selling stations in over 39 countries around the world. His clothes have been popular among celebrities such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Natalie Portman, Halle Berry, Zoe Saldana, Brooke Shields, Diane Kruger, Penélope Cruz, Julianne Moore, Jessica Biel and Queen Rania of Jordon as well as Princess Clotilde Courau. In 2011, he launched his own couture line.

Valli loves reading books and considers them as his dose of opium. He has collection of hundreds of books, especially about fashion. Filled with pages of stunning dresses on celebrities and models and beautiful pictures shot by amazing photographers. In publishing his own book, he had to stop and look back at all the years that have passed by. He had to be his own critic and judge. Valli is impressed by women who treat his clothing in a personal way. For instance, one day in a party when Valli met Margherita Missoni, he couldn’t figure out on the first go that she was wearing a dress by him.

Valli’s muse revolves around curiosity, however inspirations that come to him are closely tied to women’s allure – imaginary or real – from Lile Red Riding Hood to Peggy Guggenheim. Valli’s only pass time and hobby is fashion. His whole life is about this industry. The loyal admirers of Valli are horrified if the he is labeled as a mere designer, since his fans consider him as a fine couturier. Giambaista Valli seeks to celebrate the form of a female’s body through his decadent materials, perfect crasmanship and epic sophistication. www.giambaistavalli.com

John Galliano is a British fashion designer who served as head designer of the French haute couture houses Givenchy (1995-1996) and Christian Dior (1996-2011).

JOHN


GALLIANO British fashion designer John Galliano was born in the British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar on November 28, 1960. His Spanish mother and Gibraltarian father moved the family to South London when he was 6. The transition was difficult. His mother, a flamenco teacher, prided herself on the family’s appearance and would dress her son in elaborate outfits, even when toting him along on the simplest of errands. Despite being teased by his sloppily dressed schoolmates, Galliano’s mother instilled in him a bold and creative sensibility.

Galliano enrolled at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in 1981. While in school, he worked as a dresser for Britain's National Theatre, the eminent company in London, ensuring that the company’s thespians looked perfect. His graduating collection in 1984, inspired by the French Revolution and entitled "Les Incroyables," was bought in its entirety by the independent London fashion boutique, Browns. Galliano soon established his own label and enjoyed the support of various ďŹ nancial backers. His collections were both dramatic and intricate, but within just a few years his elaborate visions were squashed by a lack of business prowess. He went bankrupt in 1990.

Galliano struggled financially for years, still producing work intermiently, until he met and gained the support of American Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and Vogue’s creative director for the American edition, Andre Leon Talley. These high-powered connectors introduced him to the Portuguese fashion patron Saõ Schlumberger. To regain his footing, Schlumberger loaned him her house for a fashion show, and several top models worked for free. He designed the entire collection from one bolt of fabric. Schlumberger’s adoration brought several new financiers to the fore. As a result, Galliano was appointed head designer of Givenchy in 1995, thus becoming the first British designer to head a French haute couture house. In two year's time, he moved to Christian Dior.

Beyond the clothing donned by his models, Galliano is known for his own dramatic final-bow-costumes, finishing his shows wearing fantastical get-ups inspired by the likes of Napoleon Bonaparte and U.S. astronauts.

NIKELAB X OLIV ROUSTEING

A GOLDEN TOUCH French fashion designer Olivier Rousteing is known for tailoring formfiing silhouees, but it’s his love of football — dating back to childhood — that sits at the heart of the NikeLab x Olivier Rousteing: Football Nouveau collection. The second collaboration in NikeLab’s Summer of Sport series blends Nike innovation with Rousteing’s creative vision. “Fashion is usually about the catwalk and the glamour, but with Nike it was about performance and the athletes,” explains Rousteing. “What I love about this collection is that we are integrating the iconic style of football into sport style.” Taking the lifestyles of professional football players competing in Europe’s biggest championship this summer as inspiration, the men’s and women’s offerings are designed to meet off-pitch performance needs while pushing the sport’s aesthetic forward. Iconic football designs are reimagined through modern silhouees and paired with luxury finishes, including touches of gold, the color of champions. “Olivier was obsessed with the complete look, making sure each piece worked together — not just within the men’s and women’s collections, but also between the two,” confirms Jarre Reynolds, NikeLab Senior Apparel Design Director. “At every design review, he’d ask, ‘Would a football player really wear that?’ That question helped keep the collection rooted in sport.”

| 138 |

This fixation with authenticity further extends to the collection’s footwear, which includes sportstyle models inspired by Nike Football’s four silos: Mercurial, Magista, Hypervenom and Tiempo.“Olivier is meticulous about the details, with a passion for finding clever ways to embellish existing structures,” says NikeLab Senior Footwear Innovation Design Director Nate Jobe. “This obsession with finishing manifests itself especially well in the Magista and the Mercurial. In each model, we’ve embroidered paerns into the Flyknit for the first time, which creates a completely new expression of the technology.” NIKELAB FOOTSCAPE MAGISTA X OR Designed for unstoppable playmaking, the Nike Magista football boot is reengineered for everyday wear with the Air Footscape Freemotion tooling. The Flyknit upper is embellished with metallic gold embroidery, while the heel features a metallic gold zipper. A leather pull-tab and metallic gold aglets add a luxurious touch.


VIER

NIKELAB N98 JACKET X OR The classic N98 Jacket has been transformed to reinvent the off-pitch look of football. Both the men’s and women’s versions feature gold framing and an embroidered woven crest placed over the heart, a traditional location for football crests. Meanwhile, the women’s version is versatile enough to be worn either as a dress or a jacket.

LUXURY WATCHES & JEWELLERY

MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM COLLECTION William Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ is a powerful evocation of an enchanted world. Beneath the branches of a magical forest, four separate romantic plots intertwine and eventually - resolve themselves into happy endings.

It incorporates elements which have always featured prominently in the spirit of the Maison, like the fairy. Slender and sensual, these small enchanted beings are depicted in graceful poses with wings of extreme delicacy. For Van Cleef & Arpels, they embody femininity.

A celebration of love and nature, the play has defined our vision of fairyland ever since its first performance. Now, Van Cleef & Arpels presents its own interpretation of Shakespeare’s masterpiece.

Nature is another of the Maison’s favorite themes. Jewels inspired by nature are always in perpetual motion: plants blown delicately by the wind or birds mid-flight. Van Cleef & Arpels’ creations put us face to face with nature in all her fragility. www.vancleefarpels.com

VAN CLEEF & ARPELS

LADY ARPELS FÉERIE ROUGE TIMEPIECE Fairies have always been a source of fascination for Van Cleef & Arpels and are the main representations of femininity to be found among the Maison’s creations. Six years aer launching the Fairy Poetic Complication™ timepiece, Van Cleef & Arpels celebrates once again the poetry of fairies with the Lady Arpels Féerie Rouge timepiece. It is a new, elegant interpretation of the Féerie story. The ruby red color of the dial invites us into a new world of enchantment. A fairy indicates the passing hours with her magic wand and the minutes with her fluering wings, perpetuating the tradition of legends and fairies dear to the Maison. The art of “guillochage” is one of the traditional cras of watchmaking. Dating from the 16th century, it consists in engraving a dial with a paern of intersecting lines to provide vitality and depth. The art of engraving consists in creating a given form from a block of material and giving it life. It all starts with a gold plate, on which the crasman traces the outline of the motif. The threedimensional work may then begin: cuing and polishing the metal, emphasizing the lines of a drawing or reproducing a texture.

This cra - which is carried out by hand - calls for traditional tools which are usually produced by the engraver himself, according to his needs. The quality of an engraver is measured not only by his technical prowess, but also by his ability to bring his material to life and instill his creations with all the poetry of the story he wishes to tell. The Lady Arpels Féerie Rouge features a swiss mechanical movement based on a JaegerLeCoultre 846 movement with a retrograde module developed exclusively for Van Cleef & Arpels. On displays known as “retrograde”, the hands and the wings trace an arc before returning instantly to their initial position in order to begin another journey. This constant dance enables the creation to be original and highly spectacular, requiring high-precision design and crasmanship. www.vancleefarpels.com

SALVATORE FERRAGAMO SHOEMAKER TO THE STARS Salvatore Ferragamo is known as the “shoemaker to the stars.” Back in the late 1920's before most of the big names in Italian fashion were even born, Salvatore Ferragamo was craing beautiful shoes for some of the most famous feet in Hollywood. He was born in Bonito, near Naples, one of fourteen children. By the time he was nine he knew that he wanted to make shoes for a living, and convinced his peasant father (who considered shoemaking too lowly a profession) to allow him to move to Naples and become an apprentice. The wave of Italian immigrants to the United States had not yet ended, and by fourteen the youngster was on a slow boat to America.

He returned to Italy and in 1927 he established his headquarters in Florence. From there, he continued his work for the American public.In the 1930's and 1940's, the history of shoes was marked by Ferragamo's creations. In 1938 he gained the nickname "Shoemaker to the Stars" when he made Roman sandals for the Cecil de Mille epics (inspired by his traveling experiences in Egypt). Shortly aerwards Salvatore Ferragamo patented his first invention in the world of fashion: his strong but light cork wedge. Widely imitated and recreated in many different materials, shapes andr colors, the wedge-heeled shoe of Ferragamo made a huge impact on the world of fashion. But it wasn't the only one.


The year 1947 marked the launch of Ferragamo's Invisible Sandals. Made of water-colored nylon thread, the shoes took some geing used to but resulted in Ferragamo becoming the first footwear designer to win Neiman Marcus Prize at the Fashion Oscars. Ferragamo's relationship with the cinema never ended. When Marilyn Monroe declared “I don’t know who invented high heels but all women owe him a lot,” she was probably referring to Ferragamo, who was the creator of the famous stileo heels with metal reinforcements that she used to wear and which he designed especially for the star. The list of stars who wore Ferragamo is a long one including Greta Garbo, Audrey Hepburn, Ava Gardner, Sophia Lauren and Lauren Bacall. He was still a young man when he died in 1960, but his wife Wanda and his children have carried on the tradition, each taking their place in this familyowned business.

everyone started to buy it. The iconic design was reworked in new versions and materials, such as the plexiglass used in the Nineties, and is still very much on-trend. In recent decades, the group has launched a ready-to- wear line that is simple but luxurious and features buer-so leather garments, as well as accessories and jewelry lines. In 1998, they began a collaboration with Luxoica to produce a sunglasses and eyewear collection which was followed by the Ferragamo Perfumes division in 2001. Nowadays, the company is quoted on the Stock Exchange, has recorded a yearly turnover of over 600 million Euros and has more than 500 flagship stores. Salvatore Ferragamo's dream was one day to “dress women from head to toe." He would be very proud to know that his family fashion house now does exactly that. www.ferragamo.com

It was in 1965, under Fiamma di San Giuliano Ferragamo’s supervision, that the revitalized Ferragamo group started producing its famous bags. Four years later, the accessory known as the “gancino” made its first appearance in the catwalk. The gancino handbag soon became famous and

A MAN’S STORY

In 1914, 16-year-old Salvatore Ferragamo emigrated from southern Italy to Boston and then California where he convinced his brothers to join him in creating a made-to-measure shoemaking service. Within just five years it had become a beacon of luxury for Hollywood’s greatest stars, and the Ferragamo story was born. Salvatore Ferragamo followed his beliefs and made his own rules. 100 years on, Ferragamo presents A Man’s Story, an online series by photographer and filmmaker Francesco Carrozzini under the

creative direction of the brand’s Massimiliano Giornei, that highlights the notion of ‘making your own rules’. Through an intimate and compelling series of stories, told by an eclectic cast of contemporary men, Ferragamo’s luxury lifestyle collections are presented in new and surprising seings.

VILEBR AT VILEBREQUIN, THERE’S A DIFFERENT MODEL OF SWIMSUIT FOR EVERY MAN AND EVERY OCCASION. Plain or printed, or even embroidered for the ultimate aesthetes, Vilebrequin’s swimsuit models for men all bear a common thread: sun, freedom and luxury. A holiday spirit that is handed down from father to son. Everyone was seduced by these practical, comfortable shorts; their elegance and bright colors held an irresistible appeal. On every beach, the sea turtle insignia came to signify the spirit of Saint Tropez.

| 156 |

As its success grew, Vilebrequin worked with various materials and designs of exceptional quality to claim its natural place in the world of luxury goods. Vilebrequin recognized its customers' youthful energy and dedication to family values and experiences.... this led to the 1995 launch of the Father and Son concept, expanding the range from mens to boys starting at 6 months old.


REQUIN This father-son bond brought a new dimension to Vilebrequin as it took on family values. Much more than a passing fad, the enthusiasm for this range is high and has become a tradition for Vilebrequin clients globally. During this incredible adventure, the brand has found a way to keep its soul and hold true to its values of elegance and freedom. www.vilebrequin.com

Today, the Vilebrequin spirit has crossed borders from Miami to Rio, from Dubai to Saint Barthelmy, from Porto Cervo to Shanghai. This spirit shares its values with men of style, who are both demanding and original, who dare to combine relaxed elegance with wit, originality and quality.
