Laura Harrier In Ethical Louis Vuitton Gown

BLACKKKLANSMAN’S LAURA HARRIER WOWS IN BESPOKE ETHICAL LOUIS VUITTON GOWN AT THE 91ST ACADEMY AWARDS® REPRESENTING
SUZY AMIS CAMERON’S RED CARPET GREEN DRESS INITIATIVE


As a partner with Suzy Amis Cameron’s celebrated Red Carpet Green Dress (RCGD) campaign,  BlacKkKlansman lead actress Laura Harrier, wowed the crowd as she arrived to the 91st Academy Awards ® wearing bespoke ethical gown made by Louis Vuitton.

Harrier’s gown was created in the Louis Vuitton’s Paris atelier with an ethical and eco-responsible approach established with long-time verified suppliers. The gown is made of TARONI SPA blue crepe silk certified by the Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS), which is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria.

The handmade embroidery by Vermont Paris required more than 450 hours of work, and is made of glass beads, Swarovski crystal shards and sequins respecting the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®, an international quality label for harmless textiles.

To qualify as a RCGD eco-conscious garment, each piece must either be made from sustainable materials, including organic, recycled or repurposed fibers. Other features include using hand-made detailing or incorporating natural dye processing, with a dedicated focus on minimal negative impact on the environment, and environmentally and socially responsible design.

This year makes the 10th anniversary of RCGD, and in honor of this, the sustainable criteria will be overseen by Good On You, a new partner of RCGD. Good On You is the world’s leading rating system on ethical and sustainable fashion to assist people in making positive shopping choices–all delivered through an accessible app.

Amis Cameron launched RCGD back in 2009, with the intention to create awareness for the importance of sustainable practices in fashion.  Each year, RCGD works with international designers to create sustainable eveningwear to showcase during the Academy Awards®.

Also supporting the sustainable lifestyle are RCGD 2019 partners TESLA, Absolut Elyx and AKA luxury serviced residencies, a vibrant destination featuring exquisite residences designed for stays of 31 days or longer. It is because of their help along with annual contests that financial security can be provided to MUSE School CA. MUSE School CA is an environmental non-profit educational organization Amis Cameron founded in Calabasas, Calif. with her sister Rebecca Amis. This assistance enables students to access a transformative educational experience. MUSE School CA ensures smaller class sizes, personalized instruction and learning practices; all set within an inspiring and beautiful campus.

Louis Vuitton opens a special pop-up store at Miami Design District dedicated to the FIFA World CupTM Official Licensed Product Collection. The pop-up store will be open to the public from June 14th through July 15th and designed with the collection’s inspiration in mind.

Since 2010, Louis Vuitton provided a travel case for one of the world’s most sought-after, legendary trophies of the world: the FIFA World CupTM Trophy. For FIFA World CupTM Russia 2018, Louis Vuitton’s relationship with FIFA World CupTM has grown to encompass a new leather good collection: the Louis Vuitton 2018 FIFA World CupTM Official Licensed Product Collection.

The pop-up store features unique versions of Keepall and Apollo bags, and a selection of small leather goods inspired by the legendary Official Match Ball of the 1970 FIFA World CupTM. Made with the House’s iconic Epi leather first introduced in the 1920s, the styles will be proposed in up to three colors combinations.

The hexagon design is created using a three-stage embossing procedure that is both innovative and based upon the House’s historic savoir-faire, allowing each coloured hexagon to have a richly textured feel, reminiscent of classic footballs.

For a more exclusive version, a “Made-To-Order” Keepall is proposed in a rich palette of 8 pentagon colors. Each of them can be associated with one of the 5 colors of trimmings to create a Keepall in the colors of almost any national flag. Completing this sophisticated offer, an Epi leather luggage tag could be embossed with one of 35 national flags, including the nations taking part in the competition.

The new pop up store will present a unique, limited-edition FIFA World CupTM Official Match Ball Collection Trunk that is set to become an instant collector’s item. Based on the House’s traditional wardrobe trunks, it opens to reveal a stunning collection of 14 footballs: 13 reeditions of the Official Match Balls used at FIFA World CupTM tournaments since 1970, all fabricated especially for this project by adidas, and one Louis Vuitton designed football.

BLACK ATLASS

Critically acclaimed Canadian alternative R&B troubadour Black Atlass premiered the music video for his new single “My Life”today. Newly signed to XO/Republic Records, this marks his very first release for the label.

Watch it HERE.

The song is available now via XO/Republic Records HERE.

Over a soundtrack of darkly dusky beats, Black Atlass’s voice immediately engages, entrances, and enraptures on “My Life. Once again bringing together the past, present and future, the video sees him take over an empty old ornate movie theater intercut with images of a transfixing love interest whose stark beauty is matched only by the song’s expansive melodies. It’s the perfect glimpse at his “genre-less”sound and style

Long before he linked up with game-changers XO, Black Atlass first emerged in 2013 with his debut single “Paris. Transporting listeners to a hypnotic musical destination (conjured from his bedroom in Canada), he cast a quiet spell over music fans and gatekeepers alike. As his songs racked up millions of streams, he would be embraced by the fashion world. Louis Vuitton scored an exhibit with his music as another song soundtracked a Saint Laurent men’s fragrance ad. Alexander Wang even placed him alongside Kylie Jenner, Vince Staples, Zoe Kravitz, and Lexi Boling in a high-profile campaign. He personally produced his 2016 full-length Haunted Paradise and embedded himself in the thoughts and hearts of listeners everywhere. Signed by his idol The Weeknd and often thinking “What would my favorite film directors do?”, Black Atlass stands poised to bring R&B to another dimension in 2018.

SELF-TITLED DEBUT ALBUM OUT 3/30 – NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER

“Its opening uses a lone voice above sustained keyboard chords; by the end, horns and a choir have joined in without disturbing the dignified farewell.” – The New York Times

Her has shared the music video for their new single “We Choose”, directed by Antoine Poulet and Giorgio Martinoli. “We Choose” is the Her’s first release since the untimely passing of co-founder Simon Carpentier following a long bout with cancer. On “We Choose,” Victor Solf carries haunting verses into a hypnotic refrain with an airy sonic palette and classic soul style punctuated by Carpentier’s final vocal performance. The new song and video also herald the arrival of their anxiously awaited self-titled full-length debut, Her [Republic Records] — out March 30, 2018 and available now for pre-order, here.

PRE-ORDER THE SELF-TITLED DEBUT LP FROM HER HERE

The video for “We Choose” was shot in Paris, in the prestigious Palais d’Iéna and was directed by Giorgio Martinoli (Creative Director at l’Optimum and l’Officiel) and Antoine Poulet (who has worked with Louis Vuitton, Yves St Laurent, and on videos for Lana Del Rey, Woodkid and The Shoes). On the song and video, Her’s Victor Solf explains,

‘We Choose’ was the first Her song we wrote after our previous band ended. We wrote it overnight. It was a statement about why we were continuing and about this strong faith we had into our music because we couldn’t do anything else. It’s the song with which we were opening all of our live shows for the past 18 months, and it felt like the right moment to release it now—as a reason why Her needs to pursue this quest for hope and life.”

“The video tries to illustrate the impossible: the absence of Simon, half of Her and my closest collaborator for 10 years. There is a sort of beautiful melancholia to the video. The basic premise was ‘what would we do if Simon was still here?’ So everything is framed for two and meant for Simon to have a place of expression.”

LISTEN AND SHARE THE NEW SINGLE FROM HER, “WE CHOOSE” HERE

““In the grander scheme, it’s a bridge between Her’s humble beginnings and their uncertain future where the question of moving forward continues to present itself. However, Solf approaches this challenge with the same determination as on Her’s first day.” – Billboard.com

HER LINKS: FACEBOOK TWITTER INSTAGRAM

While still in school, the half-German Victor and the French Simon met in 2007, bonded like long lost brothers, started making music together equally informed by old school soul a la Otis Redding and post-Yeezus hip-hop, and formed Her in 2015. Success followed as the breakout “Five Minutes” soundtracked Apple’s “Shot on iPhone” campaign and eventually generated over 6.7 million Spotify streams. The duo released a pair of EPs Her Tape #1 and Her Tape #2, spawning fan favorites such as “Quite Like,” “Union,” and “Her” and amassing over 20 million cumulative Spotify streams. Merging artfully seductive and provocative visuals and dreamy newer wave pop with a jazz undercurrent, the boys crisscrossed the globe in support of the EPs, including making waves stateside. In the middle of it all, unbeknownst to anyone but those closest to him, Simon lost a long, quiet, and arduous battle with cancer in August 2017. With his friend’s spirit always close by, Victor worked on what would become the duo’s 2018 major label full-length debut, Her [Republic Records].

Louis Vuitton 

Louis Vuitton Miami Design District will be the only store in the US to prelaunch the Men’s Spring Summer 2018 collection on January 10th before the official launch on the 19th.Inspired by the idea of exotic islands and travel, Kim Jones’ Spring Summer 2018 collection is overflowing with colorful prints, technical details and light weight fabrics.

 

In the spirit of the collection, Louis Vuitton has redesigned an iconic VW bus which will be parked outside the Design District store fromJanuary 10th to 22nd, before it departs for Rodeo Drive and lastly heads to Waikiki Gump. 

 

Miami-themed limited edition bumper stickers will be gifted with each purchase from the Spring Summer 2018 menswear collection. Louis Vuitton Miami Design District will also be the first store in the US to offer the SS18 surfboard. Additionally, exclusive Monogram Pacific leather goods will be available for purchase only at the Miami Design District store.


The fabrics are lightweight, modern and fluid. Technical skills, tonic mohairs and seersucker, a paper-thin “scuba” lambskin leather bonded with neoprene – fabrics that travel well and are practical, both demanded by the modern island-hopper and emblematic of the functional, technical roots of Louis Vuitton. Colours contrast the signature Monogram palette of earth tones with shades of khaki and flashes of sports-inspired neon, all “surrounded” by the deep ocean blue. 

The key theme of fusion is literally echoed in the accessories. The new style, the Monogram Split, contrasts different colourways of Louis Vuitton’ s iconic Monogram canvas, emphasized with a centre seam. The style is offered in classic Keepalls, re-engineered with a lateral seam; or the tidtotee with an oversized style split vertically, including the handle, which is taken from those traditionally used on the trunks. From mountains of trunks, to hand-luggage only- this is another journey, from past to present, charting the needs of the contemporary bigger. 

New colourways and treatments of the iconic Monogram are introduced – Pacific, a cobalt-blue, Oceania-inspirwd iteration and Reflect, whose hi-vis reflective finish is influenced by high-impact sport. 

The importance of the sportswear theme-surfing, scuba and trekking- is underscored by a new technical, sports inspired line, “Monogram Outdoor”, which mixes canvas with sports webbing, scuba, zips, cording and hardware based in the coloured metal if a climber’s carabiner clips, creating new styles infused with the energy and and dynamism of outdoor pursuits. Other styles play with the recent archive – blowing up the ‘Noe’ bag into oversized backpacks, and revisiting clog style shoes first offered for women. The footwear cross-breads these clogs with hiking boots, Harajuku with Honolulu. The construction of Louis Vuitton trunks inspire soles in dovetailed lightweight ash and nailhead metallic details – as modern today as they seemed 163 years ago. 

The soundtrack is as unique as the clothes: the musician Drake has recorded a song inspired by this collection, to be premiered at the show. Another fusion – between music and high fashion. 

 

Robb Vices Subscription Box

A surprise selection of rarities, curated to provide a spectacular moment in time – experiences that until now, were reserved only for the few (very) fortunate.

The publisher’s modernly-debonair son, Daniel Curtis, has gone 3D with it and now Robb Vicesis a subscription box.

The boxes are surprises each month, filled with the most small-batched wonderfulness; all curated around a story and meant to stoke and satisfy curiosity about the good life.

The contents are worth $500-$800 and feature incredible things like technologically-wild writing instruments designed by Ferrari’s Pininfarina, hand made Italian Finlay & Co sun spectacles, luxe Euro-styled Bluetooth speakers or rare elixirs like the first creme de cassis made in 1874 from the house of Gabriel Boudier or the Louis Vuitton-owned Glen Morangie, maker of some of the world’s most spectacular single malt scotch whiskies since 1843.

Memberships must be applied for and are offered either month-to-month or for 3, 6 or 12 month periods. For approximately (depending up on what subscription chosen) $100, every month, you can gift someone else (or yourself) with a box filled with rarities that together have been curated to provide an exquisite moment in time.

Since it’s creation in 2016, Robb Vice collaborations have been done with chefs such as Daniel Boulud and Marcus Samuelsson and collections from brands like Lalique, Master & Dynamic and Highland Park. Master milliners, Worth & Worth offered the making of a bespoke hat; the box included a tape measure and swatches of handwoven Honduran fabric from which to create it.

This Spring, one of the boxes will feature all that it requires to experience the most moving of music on original vinyl. We can’t tell you what the products are – but if you remember the delight of buying a diamond tip needle, it may ignite your imagination about the contents.

Robb Vices is about discovery; getting something in the mail that creates a spectacular moment, that until now, was reserved for the very few fortunate.
