Acne Studios is launching a new underwear collection for both men and women, made from the finest Pima cotton and with signature Acne Studios detailing. Four different styles for men – boxer, normal brief, high waist brief and shorts – and two different briefs for women – normal and high waist – are being introduced. The subtle tones range from sand, putty and military green to classic black and white.
“Underwear should be beige or skin coloured, because I prefer no underwear”, says Jonny Johansson, Acne Studios Creative Director.
The new underwear collection will be exclusively available in selected Acne Studios stores and on acnestudios.com from 16 October.
Stock photography anyone? Apple picked 1) an as of late unpredictable on/off photographer and 2) no name models—at the minimum they should have chosen [high-fashion] quality models; that would have made swallowing these images easier. The added misery in these images is Apple showing a watch interface-this is me disagreeing they should be selling the idea of a "watch/time" to begin with. I think the Vogue China cover showing the actual Apple Watch Operating System's interface is a whole lot more exciting. Imagine if Apple had advertised the keyboard when the original iPhone came out; they didn't, they advertised the apps and touch interface; that's what these images are missing: the new revolution. I can look at my phone, or microwave, or car dashboard to tell the time. Telling time is all around us, and it will be the least useful feature in the Apple Watch.
Gemma Ward cements her long-awaited return to modeling starring in a short film and campaign, released globally today, for Australia’s leading fashion and lifestyle brand Country Road. The campaign officially debuts her 10-month-old daughter Naia.
Shot in August this year on Australia’s east coast, Country Road’s film and related campaign mark the first time Ward has appeared in front of the camera since her hiatus from the industry six years ago. In September she appeared at Milan Fashion Week, opening the spring/summer 2015 show for Prada, the same brand that launched her international career 11 years ago.
Returning as an actor and a mother, there is a definite evolution in Ward’s reemergence, a fact that attracted Country Road to the Perth-born beauty for the creation of this film. Capturing sun-drenched moments and memories of Australia’s idyllic summer lifestyle, Summer Wonder portrays Ward as a new mother finding solace at her family beach house.
On starring in the film and campaign Ward says, “It was incredible, moving really, as I felt the project encompassed my own journey in a beautiful way. I have a personal affinity with the Country Road brand and as a mother the project appealed to me because I share similar memories and could relate to the character and storyline. The shoot experience was natural and organic, I felt very much at home. The Country Road film really sums up Australian summer for me: friends, family, sunshine and the beach. Sharing the location with my daughter was phenomenal, she loves the beach and playing with her in the water is one thing I cherish.”
This holiday season, GUESS introduces its new advertising campaign shot in Japan by acclaimed photographer, Chen Man. Set against the breathtaking backdrops of Mount Fuji and the fields of Tokyo, the campaign is a unique pairing of Eastern and Western cultures that juxtaposes traditional Japanese surroundings against GUESS’ contemporary apparel and accessories. Bridging fine art and fashion photography—a signature of Chen Man—the hyper-saturated color palette and mixing of cultural influences give the images a wondrous, dreamlike and fantastical brilliance.
Directed by Paul Marciano, CEO and Chief Creative Officer for GUESS?, Inc., and shot by two-time collaborator Chen Man, the Holiday 2014 campaign features GUESS Girls Megan Williams and Karmay Ngaia, both young and full of energy yet from vastly different worlds. The campaign depicts a journey of their global friendship, taking the viewer on a voyage across Japan’s most picturesque locations.
The journey begins with the GUESS Girls practicing Japan’s most traditional of martial arts, Kendo. Their powerful poses bring their strength and beauty to the forefront of each image. As the journey unfolds, we follow the GUESS Girls as they enjoy a traditional Japanese tea ceremony set against a dazzling backdrop of rich foliage in vivid red, magenta and pink hues. The models are also seen traveling by rickshaw and posing alongside Japan’s emblematic fish flag. The story concludes in a bed full of cherry blossoms where the GUESS Girls accessorize eye-catching red mini-dresses with traditional paper parasols for an afternoon picnic.
Styled by the renowned fashion editor and stylist Satoshi Hirota, the images showcase stand-out apparel from the GUESS holiday collection. Bold red and black color combinations and head-to-toe sleek leather silhouettes offset the shadowy outdoor scenes. As the scenery softens, so too does the clothing. Pastel-colored garments, classic denim jackets, and chambray button downs complement the vibrant colors of the landscape.
These GUESS images will be featured in upcoming November and December issues of top fashion and lifestyle magazines, at GUESS.com, in GUESS retail stores, outdoor media, online and on collateral materials.
