Back to what the editorial team absolutely wants to share this week.
Under the limelight
Matthieu Blazy has found a shoe that suits him: the Pillow Shoes. The Italian brand Bottega Veneta has just revealed the latest sneakers designed by its artistic director. A pair steeped in culture skateboarding from the 1990s, dressed in leather and all in volume, with thick sole and padding. A look made of roundness which earned him to be baptized Pillow (Pillow). The monochromatic pair comes in black or white, not forgetting Bottega Veneta’s signature green. Seen on the catwalk of the spring-summer 2023 fashion show, the sneaker is making a place for itself, with velvet steps, among the brand’s must-have accessories for this season.
Basketball available on BottegaVeneta.comat a price of 920 euros.
Sunglasses under the magnifying glass!
One sings and the other… creates mounts. The French eyewear designer Emmanuelle Khanh and the singer Juliette Armanet imagine a pair of glasses in unison. Starting from the brand’s emblematic model, the bezel with zig zag arms, the duo created a new pair that invokes Polnareff like the Disco years. An XXL frame, ivory color, smoked blue lenses, accompanied, as a bonus, by a golden chain. A pair made in France, in a very limited edition, to wear under the sun as on stage.
To be found at a selection of opticians, and on EmmanuelleKhanh.comat a price of 380€.
Studious studio. For the new edition of its collection from the Stockholm design studios, H&M is betting on boldness. Futuristic and explosive, the latest H&M Studio line includes a range of strong pieces such as shiny thigh-high boots, a fuchsia anorak or a sequin-embroidered blazer. The premium capsule that previously paraded on the catwalks is getting a makeover to appeal to a younger audience, in search of assertiveness. This transformation is part of a renewal of the various collections of the accessible Swedish brand: a younger Studio line and a Conscious line renamed Innovation Stories. The abandonment of the internal label called “Conscious” goes hand in hand with the progress in terms of ecology which the company welcomes. As a reminder, H&M has set itself a target of 100% “more sustainable” materials by 2030. To date, it estimates that it has reached 80%.
Collection available in a selection of stores and on H&M.com.
In the deep end of clean beauty
Drunk Elephant arrived in France at Sephora in March 2021. The American Clean Beauty brand is offering an immersive pop-up in the 5e Parisian arrondissement this weekend. Two colorful floors will offer visitors the opportunity to learn how to create skincare smoothies and test the biocompatible formulas for skin, hair and body. Small bonus, every day, the first 30 visitors will receive an exclusive gift. “I am delighted to introduce the world of Drunk Elephant to consumers in Paris! Visitors to the House of Drunk will be able to discover our unique philosophy and experience fun Drunk Elephant moments” says Tiffany Masterson, the founder. Appointment is made.
House of Drunk, Saturday October 15 and Sunday October 16 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Pavillon Rive Gauche, 6 rue Frédéric Sauton, 75005 Paris.
Chanel at the top
Coco Snow avalanche. As every year with the approach of the first snowflakes, Chanel offers a wardrobe dedicated to winter sports. For the fall-winter 2022-2023 collection, the label with the double C mixes couture spirit and pop culture. To stay chic and warm, the artistic director of the brand Virginie Viard has worked on pieces with feminine cuts that do not neglect technicality. Quilted jackets, down jackets, sweaters overrun with patches with mountain codes, tops printed with camellias inspired by ski bibs… The collection is designed for the slopes, and more. With pop colors and a sophisticated design, stays in the mountains announce themselves at the height of style.
Available in selected Chanel boutiques from October 18.
Family photo. On the occasion of its 70th anniversary, the Moncler brand is joining forces with photographer Platon for a traveling exhibition. The 54-year-old Briton, known in particular for his portrait of Vladimir Poutine on the cover of the New York Times in 2007, has put his talents as a portraitist at the service of the transalpine brand. The result is the series TeaExtraordinary Expedition, which captures the seven designers (Thom Browne, Hiroshi Fujiwara, Rick Owens, Pierpaolo Piccioli, Francesco Ragazzi, Giambattista Valli and Pharrell Williams) invited by Moncler to revisit the Maya down jacket. Portraits mixed with shots from an anniversary campaign, a chronicle of Moncler identity, from 1952 to today.
The exhibition is held in London until October 16, before flying to Tokyo from November 1.
It wasn’t a one-night stand. From October 1 to 2, the jeweler Tiffany & Co stayed up all night in the heart of Paris, on the occasion of the Nuit Blanche. For the annual event that puts culture in the spotlight for one night, the jeweler has offered himself an installation in front of the Center Pompidou, which is now playing extra time. As deposited on the forecourt, a digital cube invites passers-by to discover the latest campaign Lose Yourself In Love embodied by Beyoncé, who puts the theme of love in the spotlight. The opportunity to discover the emblematic pieces of the American jeweler worn by the star in a series of photos and videos. The blue box reveals its secrets in the 4th arrondissement until October 20.
Installation visible 7 days a week.
Circular Cashmere Notshy
Cashmere believes in reincarnation. The Notshy brand specializing in this exceptional fiber is committed alongside the Italian association Progretto Lana, which works for the circular use of woolens. The French label is launching a cashmere recovery operation in all its points of sale with a very specific goal: to recycle it. To do this, at the entrance to the stores, collection terminals are made available to drop off your clothing. A gesture rewarded with a voucher of 50 euros to be used in the brand’s boutiques on all the pieces of the current season. The material collected is unraveled, then entrusted to the association which takes care of knitting a sweater, or pants. The circle is complete.
Operation set up until December, in all stores in France and Switzerland.
