THE WHITE RIBBON CAMPAIGN
Kering Foundation launches the White Ribbon Campaign 2017 online to raise awareness of the new generations of violence against women. With the white ribbon Christopher Kane, Joseph Altuzarra, Stella McCartney, Salma Hayek, Alessandro Michele and Dennis Chan.
The campaign, which started yesterday (20 November) and ends on 25 – when it will resort to the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women – wants to capture the attention of the Z generation to provoke a profound and sustainable cultural change on the theme globally.
The #ICouldHaveBeen campaign and the dedicated site icouldhavebeen.org want to reflect on the fact that women of all ages are exposed to a high risk of violence, simply to be born of a female gender.
The public is invited to imagine her life as “her”: the woman on three who is in the world a victim of violence, though no one, as the creators point to, can really understand what she is doing without having really suffered a violence.
Among the official ambassadors of the initiative are Christopher Kane, Joseph Altuzarra, Alessandro Michele and Dennis Chan, who have been photographed with the name that their parents could choose in the hypothesis that they were female females.
Fashion designer Stella McCartney and actress Salma Hayek (wife of François-Henri Pinault, owner of the Kering group), who are part of the board of the foundation, appear in the campaign with the generic “her” (pictured).
About Z-Generation, as reported by the Kering Foundation, every two seconds in the world a girl under the age of 18 is forced to marry.
A teenager over three, between 13 and 15, is bullied regularly. 15 million girls between the ages of 15 and 19 claim to have experienced non-consensual sexual relations in their lives. Over the past 12 months, 9 million girls have been subjected to sexual assault.
Furs never miss the appeal of fashion shows, so I’m not an absolute novelty to see on the catwalk for the fall winter 2017 2018. The talk of a true return to fashion seems almost controversy as they rule sovereigns among the trends of cold season after year. Once again Fendi is an absolute champion, capable of decimating fur in a thousand variants. But beside him there is also Gareth Pugh who plays Gothic, for Gucci is total white. Whether ecological or natural fur (see mink fur), the imperative is to represent it with the innate class of those who want to bring forth primitive female instinctuality. A gentle, soft instinct, warm as a hug.
Fur, queen of coats, is also among the most controversial of every season. And on the one hand it continues to be a huge trend on the catwalks, on the other there are more and more brands that decide to marry the fur free philosophy (last in the order of arrival is Gucci) and to realize coats in synthetic fur and faux fur . The fashion trend of this Fall Winter 2017-2018, then, points to the colorful furs that seem to be the most funny coats of the moment. Starting with Miu Miu wearing a flamboyant and strictly ecological style footwear, coupled with maxi pendant hats for a cozy & crazy mood. Yes, this winter requires softness and much, so much color! Do you want to dare? From the bright green faux fur Giorgio Armani to the synthetic fur in orange version is the new black of Topshop Unique, passing through the inlaid fur coats seen from Missoni to the “vacuum effect” eco-design signed by Calvin Klein and the many proposals in pink , fucsia and surroundings, here are the ideas from the catwalks, also fur free, with which to decline the season’s trend in Autumn Winter 2017-2018.
The New York fashion week runway shows registers a flight (to Paris), and echoed by raising the price of admission. Or rather, selling the ticket-invitation to fashion shows in September. The IMG , which specializes in organizing events, for years involved in the preparation of some fashion shows, launches “NYFW: The Experience”. The project, aimed at top clients, offers a package of experiences including the opportunity to attend the parades in premium seats, a custom tour behind the scenes Q & A with industry insiders, an opportunity to meet designers and models, visits to showroom, make-up service affiliated salons, styling services, gift bag and much more according to buyer demands. The phenomenon is a kind of legalization of the service offered by some touts who were starting to take foot especially online.
“It is an experience created to selected individuals who want to live close to the energy of the fashion week,” he told WWD Mark Shapiro , co-chief executive officer of WME / Img. “We have an incredible request, the fashion shows are the last mega-event marketing and historically the consumer has always been excluded, this service will give the opportunity to experience the parades to those who are not journalists or buyers,” explains the manager . Prices for personalized services are not available, but apparently the Big Apple continues to attract the attention of the fashion victim.
The announcement of ticket-invitation came at a critical time for New York, to the ever-growing light exodus of luxury brands. Just this week, the list of emigrants to Paris has become even more dense. At Proenza Schouler , Monique Lhuillier and Rodarte , present at the last Paris fashion couture week, it added Joseph Altuzarra who, along with Thom Browne , will march under the Eiffer Tower for ready to wear female September.
The American media have emphasized the phenomenon apocalyptic tones, from Nicole Phelps , director of online section Vogue Runway : “It is one of the most considered brand, the most influential of the calendar; New York has lost a good chunk of his new guard “.
He tried to throw water on the fire Steven Kolb , president and CEO of the Council of Fashion Designers of America. “There are four brands – told Fashionista – who decided to show in Paris for different reasons at different times, and each of them has taken this decision not because there were problems with the NYFW or something wrong with the NYFW, but because there was an opportunity in Paris. If you asked each of them think that would confirm that this is not a negative statement against New York, but the opportunity to show the collections in a different market. “
For now, compared to a loss of these names, the Big Apple boasts the return of Rihanna , who after two seasons in Paris, will bring its line Fenty Puma in New York.
If mini dresses aren’t your thing, get your hands on maxi dresses and take your style to new lengths. An all year round style staple for any girls wardrobe, it’s the perfect choice for chic everyday style and going out glamour. Go for an open-back, body-hugging style for your next night out look, or work it in a maxi dress, cut-out and metallic details perfect for those party season vibes. Let your legs do the talking with a sexy front split, or go for the cover-up and let your attitude to the talking. Add some heels and jewels to your basic block colours, or dress it down with some ankle boots and a killer coat for those casual feels. Whatever the weather, go maxi.

Milan Fashion Week warms the engines. And brings home one day more than a calendar. This is a first concrete result, waiting to understand what the past week’s announcements will be about the super week of fashion, so that it is waiting for days for an official communication (a press conference) that clarifies on projects , Commitments, synergies and collaborations.
The September Prêt-à-Porter fashion shows, the women’s men’s calendar, for the first time after years, boast a real week (September 20-26). To confirm it is the official website of the National Chamber of Italian Fashion: no longer canons six but seven days that will see the succession of more and more parades together, including Bottega Veneta, Gucci, Antonio Marras and for the first time Etro, Missoni, Jil Sander and Trussardi. Always on Cnmi’s website it is learned that the seven-day formula will cover the next 2018 (21-27 February, 19-25 September) appointments.
The changes did not only affect Milan but also New York and, in particular, London. The relayship between the fashion week in the two cities will be somewhat interrupted for a day rather than running uncomfortably as usual. From September 7th to 13th, Nyfw and from 15 to 19, London’s Spring / Summer 2018 proposals will be on show. In the shadow of the Big Bang, Emporio Armani will join the company, which, in conjunction with the renovation of the store in Bond Street, It will be absent from Mfw as it did last autumn when it had chosen the Paris fashion week to celebrate the restyling of the store and Armani Caffè de Saint-Germain. Among the novelties are the first London show of the Nicopanda brand by Nicola Formichetti, the 20-year-old Roland Mouret and the arrival of Tommy Hilfiger who, after the Great Apple and Los Angeles, will travel to the British capital on September 19 with the formula ‘see Now-buy now ‘.
Plaits appeared on the spring/summer 2017 catwalks in every imaginable form – from skater-girl braided buns at Dior to bohemian skinny plaits at Roberto Cavalli and romantic rope braids at Valentino and everything in between. As Guido Palau told us backstage at Dior, “there’s a plait to suit everyone”. Pick your favourite style below.
Complement spring’s sporty silhouettes with extra-long twin braids – at Emporio Armani, extensions were woven into the plaits so that they reached down to models’ waists.
Guido Palau cited skater girls as one of the references for the plaited buns he created at Dior, worn scraped back from the face and offset by J’Adior earrings.
Bohemian girls will be immediately drawn to the laid-back styles at Roberto Cavalli – softly tousled waves with two skinny plaits at the front.
James Pecis’s cool-girl braids at Simone Rocha were complemented by dewy skin and baby-hair strands around the face, giving models a post-workout look somewhat less sweaty than the reality.
For the true romantic, Valentino’s extra-long loose plaits were fastened low at the nape of the neck, whilst stray strands of hair around the face made for a pretty, youthful look.
Forgetting the scene-stealing face flowers by Val Garland just for the moment, the plaits at Preen By Thornton Bregazzi were messy, haphazard and anything but preppy.
