We engage with systems, scales, and soul. Our commitment to defining the contemporary evolves as a synthesis of moments.

Pliancy is a strength. Enforcing our belief in the value of the human hand, Alyx instrumentalises tradition as technology. Unifying sustainable processes and experimentation, the collection energises affinities between construction, craft, and emotion.

Our technical lexicon is a practical result of attentive, applied thought. In collaboration with Italian tailors, we have established artisanal vocabularies that unite traditional expertise and artistry with new techniques in construction. The individuality of the artwork is found through the hand of the artist.

Knit technologies reframe the relationship between high-performance and comfort, leveraging 3-D printing in a seamless, almost waste-free process. A combination of hand-applied dye and fabric treatments expand the dimension of the collection, and bonded leather establishes a robust material language.
A sculptural detail by Antonia Evans translates a distorted natural form into hardware cast in metal and resin.

Aligning hardware and utility across all categories and collaborations, this collection takes as its drive the manifold present. Evolution is a process of expansion and refinement.

BONDING
We have spliced the natural characteristics of leather with new technologies. Bonding leather to Dyneema®, the world’s strongest fibre, we have developed a muscular material with a unique structural silhouette. The near waterless dyeing processes of ECCO leather DriTanTM underlines our pursuit of high ecological standards and expands the spectrum of colours to our leathers.

QUANTAM DYE
Developed with Italian artisans, a combination of garment dye and fabric treatments shape a multi-step procedure that results in uniquely dimensioned textures and colours.

AMF
Details and hardware use raw material sourced from AMF, an entirely sustainable factory. Their commitment to sustainable practice incorporates automated production processes, the use of safe chemicals, and the elimination of waste from natural resources.

SUSTAINABILITY
Transparency is central in understanding the cycle of a garment. We continue to amplify our role in and obligation to progressive sustainable processes. With Majocchi, we are focused on radical reductions in water waste. With Recover, recycled nylon, AMF, and ECCO leather DriTanTM we present new textiles embedded in stringently recycled materials.

KENZO SPRING SUMMER 2020 COLLECTION – PARIS FASHION WEEK

Kenzo Fashion Show SS 2020 Paris
Kenzo Fashion Show SS 2020

 

For our ultimate collection for KENZO, the Spring-Summer 2020 collection, we looked to the home of our founder Kenzo Takada, and more specifically to the surrounding seas of Japan where groups of strong, tenacious and modern-day super-heroes plunge daily
to retrieve treasures at the bottom of the ocean.

The Ama are groups of Japanese female free divers, who, for over 2000 years have dived to the ocean floor to forage for seafood such as shrimp, urchins or even pearls for their communities. They train from their beginnings as teenagers, taught by their predecessors who can dive well into their 70s.

Due to breath training, Ama can stay underwater for significant amounts of time in one go. Over time their numbers have declined, and these intrepid fisherwomen can now only be found sporadically in pockets along the Japanese coastlines. Withstanding harsh and sometimes freezing temperatures, they have become known as the last mermaids.

Our collections are a tapestry of elements combining traditionally marine associated garments with modern and technical diving gear. For women, neoprene suiting in orange, violet and black are juxtaposed against crushed wet-look jersey tops and dresses. Skirts in mermaid jacquard linens are adorned with pearl buttons while nylon tops in vivid colors of corals have sleeves rolled up to the shoulder.

Transparent suiting complements the prints of shrimp, mermaids and sea lilies. High waisted trousers feature an assembly of embroideries, reminiscent of treasures amassed while diving. Woven ikats feature on either dresses, tops for women or as panelling on shirts and trousers for men. Tailoring in liquid viscose, sun-bleached denims and ikat prints also straddle both collections.

For menswear, hardy rubberised outerwear appears in orange and violet while Hawaïan shirts abound with prints of sea lilies or urchins. Solarised cotton sweaters in indigo or dark greys walk along side tailored jackets with shawl collars and rough edges. Jackets and coats in summer linens feature sailor collars and shorts are made of high frequency lazer-cut nylons. Suits are cropped and boxy and classic ‘K’ shirts feature net panels color blocked in lilac and orange. Net prints appear in dégradé pigments on printed cotton.

In our Fall-Winter 2019 collection for KENZO, we introduced a new bag, ‘The Tali’. We revisit the Tali for Spring-Summer 2020, updating it within the themes of the new collection and we introduce a new smaller version, The Mini Tali. Skins of viper snake resemble fish scales. Dégradés recall the approaching light seen from the bottom of the ocean floor.

Net straps and bumbags mirror the belt pouches used by the Ama to retrieve their rewards. Sunglasses are high performance and feature solarised lenses to protect. For women, traditional Japanese Okobo sandals in the sea-lily print walk alongside scuba sock sandals and a new unisex sneaker style, the scuba inspired K-Wave for men and women.

LANVIN SPRING SUMMER 2020 MEN’S COLLECTION – PARIS FASHION WEEK

Lanvin Fashion Show SS 2020 Paris
Lanvin Fashion Show SS 2020

 

PLEIN SOLEIL

Imagining his own Utopian summer, a sensual and indolent season of southbound cruises and explosions of color, Bruno Sialelli’s Lanvin spring / summer 2020 collection ‘Plein Soleil’ is an ode to idleness summer days.

Despite reminiscences of the 50s and 70s – of Marella Agnelli, Lee Radziwill and Bianca Jagger when the ocean was a second skin, the sun a living God, and incessant voyages were de rigour for jet set – the house of Lanvin sets sail on a new journey into the future.

The heart of Lanvin now beats to the tempo of an open era, where gender fluidity and diversity are part of the usual vocabulary as the mix of genres in forty-five menswear and fifteen womenswear silhouettes attest. Sailing between Taormina, Capri and the Greek islands, Sialelli diverts the codes of his “catamaran bourgeoisie” mischievously by opting for a form of naivety in masculinity.

Charming boys wear silk cardigans or oiled short coats with boy scout cotton shorts and gladiator shoes; cargo pants and cross jackets with oversized sailor collars; tunics and bags in XXL nautical pennants are playfully redesigned for the occasion where the emblems of the house – JL initials and daisies – make a discreet appearance in these Lanvin flags. Introduced in Bruno’s first collection for the house, the figure of Babar reappears as a reassuring and twisted fetish of childhood.

Lanvin blue is the main colour for summer. The historical shade of the house (Jeanne Lanvin worked with a palette of 18 different tones) is paired with the colours of the sun and sand – ochres, oranges, tobaccos and yellows. Sialelli looked to the archives for outerwear tailoring – blue wool gazar duffle coats inspired by Jeanne Lanvin couture opera coats – while suits come in striped seersucker or with all-over sequins, effortless chic without dressing up.

Accessories slip naturally into the collection. A sailor’s bag made of canvas, faded by the sea spray, and another in duvet down – as spectacular as they are ingenious – are essential companions to the bag of the season, the Hook Bag. Adorned with delicate leather marquetry and hand-painted hot air balloons, this season’s Hook Bags telescope between authenticity and refinement, between sensuality of the street and ultra-elegance.

Art deco pendants borrow from an art deco motif found in Jeanne Lanvin’s bathroom; malachite crocodile shaped cuffs shine brightly between travel inspired oversized charm necklaces with miniature suitcases and explorer tools.

Following in the steps of Jeanne Lanvin, a fashion pioneer who explored the world in her time – Venice, Toledo, Egypt and the Borromean Islands – Lanvin girls head out from Capri to Goa in long, silk, psychedelic printed dresses giving an Indian allure to the Lanvin women’s silhouettes. Like Lanvin men, they adopt a relaxed and luxurious approach, effortless and refined.

ROCHAS HOMME SPRING SUMMER 2020 COLLECTION – PARIS FASHION WEEK

Rochas Fashion Show SS 2020 Paris
Rochas Fashion Show SS 2020

 

With this collection, I further delve into the idea of the Rochas man as a maker. A Parisian maker: an artist, probably a writer, most certainly a flaneur. Whatever his occupation, it is the mindset that counts: the Rochas man enjoys getting dirty, so to speak with real life, keeping an unmistakably light spirit. He lives in no ivory tower. Rather, he hits the street, enjoying the energy of what happens around him, getting endless inspiration and food for thought out of it.

What defines this man, in my vision, is the gentleness of his gaze, the suaveness of his manners and the poignancy of his personal style. What I would like to convey is a nonchalance and an ease with getting clothed, with mixing colors and items together. I turned such ideas into an easy wardrobe meant to be interpreted as anyone wishes.

Softness is mandatory, across the whole spectrum: liquid volumes, flowing lines, supple fabrics and painterly hues are my medium. I tried to touch everything a man needs, offering the Rochas version of it, from soft tailoring to sportswear, from shirting to knitwear. A smattering of frills harmoniously clashes with the pragmatic precision of trenches and blousons, giving outerwear a delicately twisted slant, letting practicality and sophistication, masculine and feminine mingle and merge.

A city and life wanderer, the Rochas man collects bits and bobs, and maybe puts them on a string of rape, turning ceramic objects trouvé into necklaces. A laver of nature, he carries his painted garment holder, made in recycled paper, with pride. He likes his shirts and knits with a bit of embroidery: the human touch of craft, which can also be the uneven patina of a color, gives warmth and life.

Being atone with the environment, alive in nature is important for me, on every respect. I love natural fibers and natural colors, and I do my best to work responsibly. The Rochas man I have in mind, in the end, is urban, with a bucolic soul.

Federico Curradi, Menswear Creative Director

AMIRI SPRING SUMMER 2020 COLLECTION – PARIS FASHION WEEK

Amiri Fashion Show SS 2020 Paris
Amiri Fashion Show SS 2020

 

It’s the morning after Woodstock ’69. The sun crosses the Catskill Mountains as the final embers of Jimi Hen- drix’s torched Fender Strat float into the wind, yet the communal spirit created across those three defining days still burns.

This Spring Summer 2020 season represents a folkloric correspondence with Woodstock’s collective ideal, embracing a mindset of peace through togetherness, love and a deep connection to the heart of nature. We gather amongst a palette of earthy tones and pastel skies to pay homage to the original guitar heroes while igniting a new vanguard.

At once louche and decadent, the Summer of Love liberation is echoed by relaxed tailoring that becomes contemporary stage outfits, where construction is modernized slim to a kick flare ankle. Crochet techniques speak to artisanal craft, while embellished peace lilies flower across silk bombers.

From beatnik to bohemian, this sonic trip expands through rich suedes, velvets and desert hues. Custom-made jacquard roses trail across women’s longline coats, and silk knits are created using a unique double-weave to form an exquisite tie-dye effect.

As sunset prints inform a sense of optimism and transpire alongside transcendent psychedelic florals and starry skies, large duffel bags are introduced as well as a range of leather shoulder options that resemble guitar bodies and snare drums alluding to a nomadic lifestyle while feeding the mantra: always march to your own beat.

Of particular prominence is a patchwork motif evoking Navajo blankets and symbolic of the global influences that energize the house codes. Love bead necklaces conjure Jim Morrison and romantic sheer caftans Janis Joplin, alongside original hand-airbrushed imagery authorized in cooperation with the estate of Jimi Hendrix.

50 years on, Woodstock remains an abiding symbol of counterculture freedom, humility and camaraderie values mirrored by the Amiri family, whose hard work and kinship form the backbone of the brand.
