Jimmy Choo Reveals an Exclusive Fashion Shoot With Victoria Song Qian For Prefall 2018

Jimmy Choo Reveals an Exclusive Fashion Shoot With Victoria Song Qian For Prefall 2018

Singer, actress, dancer; a multi-talented individual, Victoria Song Qian is a perfect definition of the modern day woman. The evidently talented actress and singer first emerged on the scene as part of Korean girl group F(X). Nine years later, the star launches her first solo album VICTORIA, is a leading actress in an upcoming TV show, and is praised for her dancing on reality show Hot Blood Dance Crew. In addition to her successful career, Song Qian has carved her way as a style icon recognized for her impactful fashion nous.

For Pre-Fall 2018, Victoria Song shares an exclusive interview and photo diary including some of her favourite styles from the Jimmy Choo collection.

What are your favourite Jimmy Choo pieces from the shoot, and why?
I liked every piece from the shoot. They’re all so comfortable and versatile. However, what I love the most is the several made-to-order heels with my name engraved on the sole; it always feels nice to have something exclusive for yourself.

Are you a big shoe person?
I’m a big shoe fan and love buying high heels, although it might be very difficult wearing it all the time.

Named by Vogue as one of the world’s best dressed women, who do you look to for fashion inspiration?
I am inspired by what other people wear. Every season I attend fashion shows to see the latest trends and try the new looks myself. What I like to keep in mind is that not all trends are suitable for me, so I try my best to find a happy medium.

What is your favourite colour?
Now I’m currently a big fan of pink

What influences your music? Favourite musician?
During my career in South Korea I was exposed to a lot of pop, so I’d say this has definitely influenced my music.  There are quite a lot of musicians that I admire at the moment, and definitely look forward to working with them.

With dancing being one of your fortes, what is your most memorable dancing story?
One of the most memorable dancing moments is joining the reality TV show The Hot-Blood Dance Crew. This is where I was able to meet a lot of talented individuals – their persistence and passion for street dance really inspires me. I’ve learned so much while filming on set.

What is your favourite weekend getaway?
I want to enjoy nature as much as possible. If I’m in the city, I prefer going to a café, window shopping, or travelling to places which I rarely visit. Nonetheless, staying at home is a good getaway too.

When it comes to ambitions, what are you really prioritizing for your future over the next couple of years?
Acting, singing, and just seeing whatever I am capable of doing.

What is your favourite hobby?
Go shopping, buy clothes, and try new looks. It’s very fulfilling to try a nice look. In my spare time, I’d like to practice Muay Thai.

Yorky Gommino

Yorky Gommino

A dancer, a puppy, and a long-fringed loafer. Tod’s latest video features Renee, contemporary ballet dancer and daughter of the legendary singer Rod Stewart, pirouetting playfully in this video to celebrate the Yorky, a new take on Tod’s iconic Gommino was launched on May 10.

Light and eclectic, the Gommino is the perfect fit for all with a passion for life — ready to dance, to laugh out loud, and to have fun.

Renee, as part of the Tod’s band, grew up surrounded by music and dance and is the ideal storyteller in this choreographic tribute to effortless style and Tod’s Italian way of life.

Renee Stewart
Since graduating from the London Contemporary Dance School in 2016 with a BA (Hons) degree, Renee has been working as a freelance contemporary dancer, where she has been collaborating with other artists on numerous projects. Renee will be performing as part of the Awkward Moment Series created by London based composer, sound artist and DJ MimiXu, at Annabel’s Mayfair on April 25th. She has also recently finished a film piece directed by Leila Bartel and choreographed by Waddah Sinada.

Tod’s She Band SS18
Tod’s She Band 2018: seven international female characters — ranging from performing arts to fashion and social life — invited to leverage personality as the real essence of style. Intentionally coming from several backgrounds and countries, but still sharing a common attitude that binds them all together — the band’s members are differently “ambassadoring” the Italian lifestyle as a trait that goes beyond time and space to be expressed on a global level through signature features.

All of this is what Tod’s intends to enhance by inviting them to star also in an ironic script about digital obsession, as a pretext to involve them in an unconventional role-playing game. Leveraging the idea of shoes as animated objects with a soul embodying personal taste and feelings, this girl talk is a playful story of inner thoughts VS outer reactions told on two different levels: on the table they all play a social character, while under the table their feet (and shoes) tell the truth. Moreover, in order to strike a fun and slightly confidential glance on themselves, the Tod’s She Band 2018 members have been starring in a series of snack interviews in which shoes naturally give way to storytelling.

Lacoste FW2018-19 Men’s Collection

Lacoste FW2018-19 Men’s Collection

This season, Lacoste draws on its tennis heritage to unveil a new collection which strikes a balance between tradition and modernity. Designs of unabashed sporty and contemporary elegance to move easily and comfortably from the tennis court to the street.

Carnaby Evo
Carnaby Evo is one of the brand’s most emblematic models. Reflecting a timeless style, it evokes the elegance of René Lacoste on the courts. This winter, Lacoste presents two new versions which adopt two strong style codes: colour blocking and piping. The first is a two-tone, two-material version comprising a white leather and navy blue suede upper embossed with the word Lacoste. The second version opts for the purity of smooth white leather with a heel counter subtly enhanced by piping and marked with a navy blue crocodile, without forgetting the embroidered green logo on the side of this sneaker.

L.12.12 Unlined
Created by merging authenticity and innovation and inspired by the iconic L.12.12 polo shirt, this classic tennis shoe stands out by its minimalist design and the simplicity of its construction. The flexibility of an unlined single-tone leather or nubuck upper is underlined by a camel-coloured leather band which marks the back of this sneaker, subtly branded with two embossed crocodiles. A new model designed for a lightfooted feel and a relaxed look.

Explorateur Classic
Inspired by sport and designed for city wear, the Explorateur Classic high top sneaker admirably combines practicality and modernity to brave the elements in style. Providing rain resistance with its waterproof leather upper and comfort with its warm Thinsulate lining, the Explorateur Classic opts for careful finishing details such as a ribbed effect at the ankle and metal hooks and crocodile.

Joggeur 2.0
Lacoste presents the winter version of its Joggeur model. A new running shoe with a sober and refined design which combines performance and aestheticism. Comprising a leather and waterproof nylon upper and a sturdy rubber sole, it has a heel counter which guarantees foot support and stability. Ideal for sport or everyday jogging, it is lined to ensure comfort and warmth in winter.

Furla Metropolis and Hello Kitty: A Meeting of Icons

Furla Metropolis and Hello Kitty: A Meeting of Icons

Take a Japanese icon, famous all around the world, and invite it on a romantic journey through the blossoming landscapes of Italy: Hello Kitty, the lovely symbol of many generations, today encounters Furla in an original creative collaboration that connects the East and the West.

The ideal meeting place is, without question, the Furla house’s icon: The Metropolis crossbody. It serves as a palette for three digital prints starring Hello Kitty. On a pink, red, or blue background, Hello Kitty is surrounded by flowers: white petals which are a perfect cross between daisies, hibiscus flowers, cherry blossoms, and lotus flowers, linking the culture and creativity of the two worlds.

There is also a fourth Furla Metropolis that celebrates this partnership with Hello Kitty: the body is in white Ares calfskin with a wide strap in black leather and, as the flap, with the Hello Kitty’s face with its characteristic pink and red bow.

The partnership between Hello Kitty and Furla continues with the accessories: micro bags, keyrings, credit card cases, Saffiano beauty cases, and pouches pick up the prints and themes of the Metropolis.

Products in the Furla Hello Kitty collection will be available in selected Furla flagship stores starting May 15th.

Longchamp Announced Kendall Jenner As The Face of The Company’s Fall – Winter 2018 Campaign

Longchamp Announced Kendall Jenner As The Face of The Company’s Fall – Winter 2018 Campaign

Longchamp is thrilled to reveal its newest campaign star: Kendall Jenner. Jenner was approached for this partnership because she and Longchamp share the values of championing effortless worldliness, and of celebrating a global, versatile sense of style. Throughout Jenner’s experience in (and ascent to the top of) the modeling industry, she has exhibited an unwaveringly confident poise — a character trait that Longchamp both admires and infuses into its fashion and accessories collections.

I think there’s this synergy between the term ‘world citizen’ and Longchamp. To me, a world citizen is someone who wants to share more of an understanding of different cultures,” says Jenner.  “With Longchamp, while the collection always has a touch of the Parisian, it is something that can be worn around the world, by women who support this idea.”

This season’s partnership with Jenner marks Longchamp’s 70th Anniversary and follows the brand’s longstanding tradition of working with the industry’s most creative and talented names. In this fast-paced digital age, Longchamp is evolving — expanding its global footprint and speaking to a new generation of customers who value an independent spirit and celebrate authenticity.  It was with this vision in mind that Longchamp’s CEO Jean Cassegrain and his sister, Artistic Director, Sophie Delafontaine, found Jenner to be the obvious choice for their latest campaign.

Longchamp has always been a pioneer in creating collections that suit the lifestyle of the urban traveler.  That lifestyle is something that Jenner has mastered, especially in her line of work. You never know when a last-minute phone call might have her hopping on a plane a few short hours later, only to then land halfway across the globe.

Kendall is free, independent, she travels, she goes fast, always with style which is how we see the Longchamp woman,” says Longchamp Artistic Director Sophie Delafontaine. “Her talent is not only in the way she acts but in the way she interacts — she is an authentic personality in the millennial generation.”

Adding to that, Longchamp CEO Jean Cassegrain says: “Kendall Jenner represents the aspirations of the new Longchamp woman. A feeling of freedom, freshness and authenticity in a world that is continuously moving faster and faster. Longchamp is the brand of women who are, like Kendall, active, multi-faceted, multi-talented, and with a creative and independent spirit.”

Marc Jacobs Spring 2018

Marc Jacobs Spring 2018

“We started from last season, and thought: let’s put the effort into making clothes. Let’s show in the Armory like we did before. No set, no fancy lights, no music… but let’s turn the girls out in joyous, oversized, reimagined, exaggerated prints and color.”

This collection is the reimagining of seasons past somewhere beyond the urban landscape of New York City.

The Collection

Spring’s naively abstract, redrawn, exaggerated prints, and patterns were realized in fabrics of various weights – a mélange of nylons mixed with silk and synthetic satins, jerseys, and twills. Our take on “real” sportswear embraces a super-bold glowing-sunshine palette, matching from top to bottom while clashing together from look to look.

Accessories

Bags take cues from the utilitarian. From flight bags and fanny packs to top load duffels, shrunken and blown out of proportion in printed twill and satin.

Shoes range from an ordinary flip-flop and a techy-sporty sole to an exotic, embellished evening baboosh, all adorned with fringe, tinsel, jewels, gems, pompoms, and tassels.

Inspired by Kate’s legendary Met Ball look, Sofia’s desire to have her portrait taken in a turban, and Katie’s instinct to take the girls from last season and “turn them out,” the turbans are magnificently draped and twisted with our printed scarves by the masterful wizard milliner, Stephen Jones.

Quietly observing, capturing and interpreting the process from styling, sewing, and showing is the legendary and inimitable photographer, Stephen Shore.

Tory Burch Spring Summer 2018 Collection

Tory Burch Spring Summer 2018 Collection

“Bold. Audacious. Brilliant. David Hicks redefined interiors. His fearless and witty take on color and print, and his exquisite attention to detail, have made a lasting impression on me. For Spring/Summer 2018, we are honored to work with the legendary designer’s original scrapbooks, given to us by his son. Immeasurable thanks to Ashley Hicks for this collaboration.” — Tory Burch

Silhouettes: Relaxed shapes capture the season’s effortless vibe. Slouchy, wide-legged pants, bohemian caftans and a wrap dress cut from scarves balance preppy shirts and a classic trench for a collection that is feminine and familiar, modern and easy.

Palette: Understated neutrals—crisp white, soft stone and toffee—juxtapose joyful bursts of color—poppy red, tangerine and mustard yellow—complemented by leaf green and muted shades of pink and chambray.

Prints & Patterns: A bold mix of prints and patterns from Hicks (or inspired by his work), including kaleidoscopic and geometric motifs as well as stripes in different iterations and scales. An iris print references Hicks’ love of gardens and a Moroccan-inspired pattern pays homage to his global influences. 

Fabrications: Draped silk, cashmere and soft crepe set a laid-back tone underscored by designs crafted from terry beach towels and accessories in natural vachetta. Lace framing on silk and contrast boarders on cotton draw on interior design concepts, while sequins, laser-cut elements and fine metal embellishments add dimension and texture in unexpected ways. Graphic buttons and hardware add a signature touch.

Accessories: The focus is on easy, casual pieces, from pool slides and flat mules made of simple strings of leather to crossbody bags with graphic charms and oversized totes in terry toweling. The season’s geometric motifs carry through to the jewelry, including whimsical pendant necklaces, cuffs, earrings and signet rings.

In the Philippines, Tory Burch is exclusively distributed by Stores Specialists, Inc., and is located at Greenbelt 5, Rustan’s Makati, and Rustan’s Shangri-La. Follow @ssilifeph on Instagram for more information.
