H&M STUDIO SS19

H&M UNVEILS H&M STUDIO SS19 – AN ADVENTUROUS, GLAMOROUS COLLECTION FUELED BY WANDERLUST

Today, H&M unveils the campaign for the H&M Studio SS19 collection, “The Glam Explorer”, styled by Géraldine Saglio and photographed by Lachlan Bailey against the dramatic backdrop of Arizona. Inspired by a glamorous adventurer, the campaign sets the tone for H&M’s decision to swap the Paris Fashion Week catwalk for the Sedona, Arizona desert, where the SS19 collection will debut in an immersive theater format. The unique storyline can be followed on #HMStudio and the collection will be available to purchase beginning on March 21st on hm.com and in select H&M stores.

“The H&M Studio SS19 collection caters to a glamorous, adventurous spirit: we’re designing for a woman who doesn’t want to limit herself. She might be going to a party one evening in a sequined skirt, but the next morning she’s up early to go to yoga in her metallic-stripe leggings – so we’re thrilled to be able to present the collection in Sedona, Arizona, channelling the glamorous explorer spirit that infuses the clothes,” says Pernilla Wohlfahrt , Design Director H&M

“Working on SS19 with the H&M Studio team has been a very satisfying project for me. We wanted to capture the mix of high glamour and nature in its wildest form, inspired by the famous 1975 French movie, Le Sauvage, with Catherine Deneuve as a runaway bride on a tropical island. The combination of high glamour and more utilitarian pieces feels very ‘me’ – I like to dress in this way and I hope other women will too,” says, Géraldine Saglio, stylist and creative consultant

Taking a free-spirited glam explorer as its muse, the SS19 collection offers a versatile mix of thrilling, statement pieces with low-key, utility-led separates. With mood board references that include the vibrantly-hued mineral ponds of Utah, the collection’s key pieces comprise of a rainbow-hued printed dress, a decadent sequin-splattered skirt, and a structured utility jacket – all of which spell effortless glamour.

PETA x Coalition LA

PETA x Coalition LA unites the largest animal rights organization in the world and the premium outerwear brand with 20-years of cruelty-free manufacturing experience! The collaboration is working with retailers to design custom fashion-forward outerwear capsules made from premium vegan materials. The two animal rights advocates launched the collaboration late last year with a limited-edition “Go With The Faux” vegan leather jacket.

Due to the success of this initial collaboration jacket, PETA x Coalition LA will be offering retailers the chance to design and carry a custom fashion-forward outerwear capsule made from premium vegan materials. The collaboration has had the support of WWDMAGIC from the start and will be debuting this custom production service to their buyers first at this coming February show.

“We felt it was important to partner strategically with Coalition LA to bring awareness to all of the WWDMAGIC buyers to know that they too have cruelty-free options when it comes to buying,” said Kelly Helfman, President of WWDMAGIC.

What’s to come:

• Conscious fashion is a focus this show and WWDMAGIC will highlight this important issue to the B2B world at MAGIC

• This year’s show bag will be made from PETA x Coalition LA’s premium vegan leather and will be available to attendees

• PETA x Coalition LA will present a Vegan Fashion Panel on the main floor that will dive into the rise of the conscious consumer and how brands are taking steps toward accommodating the growing cruelty-free fashion market.

• Tuesday, February 5th at 10:30AM – WWD Social House

Conscious Fashion Choices Are Getting Trendy

This panel will dive into the rise of the conscious consumer and how brands are taking steps toward accommodating the growing cruelty-free fashion market.

We’ll be talking with celebrity animal rights activist Daniella Monet, vegan fashion influencer Molly Tuttle, and PETA’s Fashion Campaigns Manager Christina Sewell on the benefits of offering more sustainable options for your shoppers. As a secondary point, all attendees will get the opportunity to look up-close at a vegan materials portfolio swatch books that contain the latest fabric technology such as Pinatex pineapple leather, mushroom leather, and faux fur made with recycled plastic bottles!

“The PETA x Coalition LA collaboration is uniquely positioned to move retailers across the nation towards a more mindful buying behavior, due to the fact that this is PETA’s first campaign with a wholesale manufacturer,” said Darci Wong, Creative Director of Coalition LA.

The challenges of building your own swimming pool

There are a few reasons why swimming pools have become so incredibly popular among homeowners. The first is, very obviously, the enjoyment factor. There’s nothing quite like having your own pool in the warmest months. The other is that having your own pool is great for relaxation and exercise, and a fantastic way of taking greater control over your fitness and health. However, there are some challenges involved with building your own swimming pool, and you should never start building your pool without assessing these factors first. Plan the right way and your pool could be the addition to your property that you always dreamed of.

Talk to experts

Property experts should always be your first port of call. Talk to local realtors about property prices in your area. They will know how much value a pool will add to your property. It could be that there is a little call for it in your area, but the majority of homes will be able to ask a slightly higher price with the addition of a pool.

  • For most people, a pool addition won’t add a significant amount to the overall property value, although it may well increase your property taxes.
  • You should be aiming at spending no more than 15% of your property’s total value, or you run the risk of overspending.

Setting up in advance

You will need to prepare if you decide to go ahead with your pool. Unless you have an army of helpers with shovels, it’s a good idea to make use of a mechanical digger. Pools can take a long time to dig by hand, and you’ll reduce your overall time with some industrial help. The other factor you’ll need to consider is what to do with the excess soil. You’re going to need to rid yourself of that soil, and this could be a big job. It’s often worth contacting a local dumpster company, with Dumpster Maxx offering a variety of Roll Off Dumpster Denver options to choose from. Make sure that you have the right equipment in place to prevent wasted time on your pool.

Design considerations

There are a number of different pool types available, so don’t just dive into a decision. Look at infinity pools and lap pools for the current trends, but you can even design your own style. Look at the space that you have available and think about local materials that are available for lower costs. Those materials can contribute a lot to your overall pool pricing, so if you can reduce the amount you pay due to local availability, all the better. The average pool can cost anywhere from $10k to $60k, so it’s important that you know your budget and work to the limitations that you set yourself.

Planning permission

In the majority of cases, a swimming pool is classified as a permitted development. You will need to remain within the boundaries of your property and behind the building line of your front-facing property. If you’re going for the addition of a designated building to cover your pool, you will usually have to stick to one-story only, although some states differ in their guidelines. Check with experts in local housing laws to make sure that you aren’t stopped halfway through your project.

Vaeda Black

Through its sensational choreography from Tony Nominated and Emmy Winning AC Ciulla and the visual prowess of Director James Morano, Singer/Songwriter Vaeda Black has released her brand new video – “Suicide Love”! Based on her original concept, she credits Ciulla and Morano for their ability to bring her vision to life.

With the release of her latest single, “Suicide Love,” Vaeda Black takes the juxtaposition of two seemingly opposite topics and weaves them together to create a dark love story that illustrates the idea of being vulnerable and “showing yourself to another person and letting them love you.”

She says, “It actually started with a text message from my ex-boyfriend while we were together probably about a year ago. I don’t remember exactly what we were talking about, but he wrote ‘that’s called suicide, love.’ Something about those two words next to each other really struck me; they’re so different. I kept thinking it would be such an interesting way to express love, passion and deep wanting, so I wrote a song around it.” The combination of those two distinct feelings gives the song a truly unique sound and style.

From bold high tops to graphic cartoon tees, it seems like the only attire men want to wear anymore is streetwear. It’s not just a style that defines what models are wearing off-duty or what celebs are wearing off set anymore. Steeped in hip-hop culture, we know mens streetwear as a category of mens clothing online, but it’s also becoming a lifestyle and culture that revolves around men’s fashion.

From sneaker selfies to fresh haircuts, the streetwear influence is spreading like wildfire, especially amongst millennials. The street-style scene has infiltrated so much of today’s pop culture that most stylish menswear brands include streetwear-inspired pieces in their lines. You no longer need to limit yourself to impossible-to-get name brands in order to buy men’s trendy clothing with those authentic urban vibes, like urban styles of mens clothing online at Differio.com.

As much as we catch street style every day, there are certain trends that truly make a unique statement each season. We gathered the top streetwear trends that are worth investing in right now so you know what to ditch and what to score.

  1. 90s-Inspired Pieces

If there’s one era that’s been successfully brought back from the dead, it’s the 90s decade. From color block patterns to colorful graphics, men’s streetwear has definitely taken inspiration from some of the brightest and boldest elements of this decade. As for the streetwear looks, it’s never been easier to mix vintage and modern styles than with today’s retro-inspired fashion clothes for men.

Amongst trendy mens clothing online and in stores, brands are bringing back the bubble-jacket look – the kind made popular by so many old school hip-hop artists. The latest puffer-jacket trends are covered in high shine and fashioned with an oversized fit. Street-style aficionados are layering their puffer jackets over ribbed turtlenecks and color block sweatshirts.

There are signature details in these pieces that can take you back twenty years ago. You still get the urban-vintage vibe, but it’s tweaked with modern details that are worthy of being sold amongst high fashion clothes for men.

  1. Luxe Athleisure

Athleisure was probably one of the biggest influences that made mens streetwear so highly coveted across men’s fashion. It’s basically another way of rocking athletically sexy clothes for men when you’re not doing leg presses and bicep curls at the gym. Cool and comfortable, the newest streetwear trends you can find amongst mens clothing online takes athleisure to luxury heights.

The luxe-athleisure look is basically workout clothing redesigned to look more fashion forward. You can expect a high influx of cool sneaker boots – a wearable hybrid of high-top fashion sneakers and ankle boots. As for fashion clothes for men, urban hoodies, slim-fit pants, and joggers for men are getting updated with racing side stripes that add an athletic touch.

The beauty of this style of urban clothing for men is that you can easily mix and match these pieces for going out or staying in.

  1. Urban Apocalyptic

Festivals like Burning Man might be influencing the streetwear scene as trendy mens clothing online and in stores are debuting urban apocalyptic looks. While this trend still honors streetwear’s roots in urban culture, it seamlessly combines both styles, so you can rock Mad Max vibes on a casual hoodie or t-shirt.

From oversized puffer coats to worn distressed sweaters, the urban apocalyptic trend is all about making post-apocalyptic style more wearable. Some of the latest trends include tops detailed with that end-of-the-world feel, like ergonomic cargo pockets on cardigans and multiple zipper accents on ripped jeans.

It’s an innovative take on transforming looks that are normally more appropriate for couture and making them comfortable enough for grabbing drinks or running errands.

 

NEON COLORS × G-SHOCK

With fall in full swing, there is no doubt that bright, neon hues are the biggest fashion trend this season. While some may be intimidated from vibrant colors, Casio G-SHOCK’s range of men’s timepieces will be the perfect pop of color for any fall look. From eye-catching watches in bright yellow, to more subdued models with pops of neon, G-SHOCK’s latest offerings make the perfect statement accessories.
