Italian luxury fashion house Fendi unveils Fall/Winter 2014-2015 collection

Paris, France,  2014-3-10 — /EPR Retail News/ — On February 20 Fendi unveiled an incredible Fall/Winter 2014-2015 collection, melding urban chic and a military look. This creative prowess is renewed every six months, keeping pace with the frenetic Fashion Week calendar. From inspiration to tangible ideas to production to final adjustments, here’s a closer look at the amazing talent that goes into creating a Fendi collection!

Ten minutes. That’s how long it takes the 50 models to walk down the runway and present the latest Fendi collection to the iconic Italian house’s guests. Ten minutes to reveal the fruit of three months of preparations and work. Ten intensive minutes that crown a true collective effort by studio directors and the design teams for each product line (women’s ready-to-wear, furs, leather goods and shoes), the research studio, and of course production teams at the workshops of Fendi and its suppliers. All of this is masterfully orchestrated by Fendi’s two artistic directors, Karl Lagerfeld for women’s ready-to-wear and fur and Silvia Venturini Fendi for leather goods and accessories.

Everything kicks off three months earlier when Karl Lagerfeld shares his inspiration for the color palette, the general theme of the collection, shapes and materials. Silvia  Venturini Fendi pursues this creative path with her inspiration, conceiving leather goods and accessories that create harmony with the ready-to-wear. With the objective now set, the countdown begins…

A few weeks later, the studio directors liaise with their research colleagues to find exactly the right materials. The main silhouette and looks for the collection are also chosen. The first prototypes are made, followed immediately by the initial fittings. Two months ahead of the show the materials are validated so orders can be placed. For the most recent show, over 4,000 meters of fabric were ordered! This is also when the final sketches are given to the ateliers by the studio directors.

Production is launched six weeks prior to the show in Fendi workshops. Each look is then fitted on models for adjustments and corrections before being finalized.

Then, three days before the show all the creative teams move from Rome to Milan, where the collection is presented. Everyone—designers, studio directors, workshop artisans and development teams—is mobilized for this ultimate stage. This is when the decision is made for the combinations of ready-to-wear, accessories and shoes to be used in the 50 looks that will be sent out in the runway line-up. The day before the show the pieces are fitted for each model, with final modifications done in real-time by the workshop artisans.

At last everything is ready and the show can begin. In all, the collection counts 50 runway looks, representing 120 different pieces. Given that each piece represents around two weeks of work (model, prototype, final production, etc.), it’s easy to imagine the huge amount of work and intensive creative effort that go into each piece to make every new Fendi collection a resounding success.

Gap launched “One Stitch Closer” program to celebrate International Women’s Day

NEW YORK, 2014-3-7 — /EPR Retail News/ — On International Women’s Day, March 8th, Gap is introducing “One Stitch Closer,” a new program that extends Gap’s long-standing commitment of supporting women. At the center of the program is Gap Inc.’s P.A.C.E. (Personal Advancement & Career Enhancement) program, which will expand to provide education and training to even more of the women who make the company’s clothes. One Stitch Closer will share the stories, ideas, accomplishments and challenges of these women and other change agents, who focus on making themselves and the world better every day.

One Stitch Closer will include the release of a six-part eponymous film series by director/cinematographer Rachel Morrison featuring six exceptional women. The films are very personal and emotional portraits that will inspire viewers to do more to ensure that women have every opportunity to fulfill their dreams. Amongst others, the series features a garment worker and P.A.C.E. program participant from Indonesia, a poet and youth advocate from Los Angeles, and a 19-year-old woman who is using her passion for science and technology to better detect breast cancer. By “stitching” the individual films together into a year-long series, these personal journeys remind us that women are the very fabric that keeps the world together. Starting in early March, the films will be available for viewing at Good.is, Gap.com and youtube.com/gap.

“When a woman moves ahead, we all do,” says Seth Farbman, Gap Global Chief Marketing Officer. “This program is a small step to creating big change. By inspiring each other every day, we get one stitch closer to a brighter world.”

As a tribute on March 8th, Gap will change all logos on Gap.com and the Gap social channels to purple, the official color of International Women’s Day. Additionally, Gap will create and sell a special edition purple t-shirt featuring a quote by poet and film subject, Azure Antoinette: “The way to inspire change, is to recognize the wisdom of a woman.” Gap will donate $10,000 from the sale of this merchandise to CARE, a P.A.C.E. partner that provides implementation and training support for the program. The t-shirt will be available on Gap.com and in select U.S. stores on March 8th. Customers can learn more about One Stitch Closer, as well as the inspiring women in its film series, through the signage in Gap stores where the t-shirt is sold and by following #womeninspire on Gap social media channels.

Khloé Kardashian added, ‘’It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of the hoops! I love how versatile they are and how they add instant glamour to even a simple daytime look.

Keep the look a little more subtle by wearing your hair down so the earrings glimmer through your hair, or slick your hair up for a really dramatic look’’.

H&M Studio presented its autumn 2014 catwalk show during Paris fashion week

Stockholm, Sweden, 2014-2-28 — /EPR Retail News/ — Last night (26 FEB 2014), H&M Studio, the new name for H&M’s seasonal collection of key pieces, presented its autumn 2014 catwalk show during Paris fashion week. Held at the Grand Palais in front of 600 guests, including Miranda Kerr, Jessica Alba and Solange Knowles, models such as Andreea Diaconu, Joan Smalls, Izabel Goulart and Saskia De Brauw wore the look of the season: nonchalant attitude of the 21st century, mixing feminine with masculine styles. The collection will be available in around 250 stores worldwide, as well as online, from September 4, 2014.

The mood of the collection was dominated by a mix of feminine with masculine, with slip dresses and draped tops worn under men’s blazers, biker and aviator jackets. Fabrics included silk crepe, silk satin, fine cashmere and velvet. Fake fur coats added texture with detailing from sequin and stone embroidery.

For the show, the historical Grand Palais was transformed into an abstract cityscape, with graphic architectural lines and billboards punctuating the space. At the head of the space was a stage, on which the upcoming French star HollySiz gave a live performance throughout the show.

Meanwhile the global audience at hm.com had exclusive access to the event with French fashion TV expert Mademoiselle Agnes. Before the show was live-streamed, Mademoiselle Agnes chatted live with celebrities and VIP guests, as well as taking the cameras backstage, giving the global audience a truly front row experience.

H&M Studio is the new name for H&M’s key seasonal fashion collection. With its own dedicated design team, each season H&M Studio will offer a limited-edition collection of the hottest looks and statement pieces.

“I loved the mix of feminine and masculine for autumn at H&M Studio. Slip dresses and draped tops are the new essentials, especially when worn with blazers or biker jackets. It’s about taking the Parisian spirit and bringing it to the H&M world,” says Ann-Sofie Johansson, Head of Design, New Development.

“It’s so good to be at H&M Studio in Paris to see this limited edition collection. H&M is such a wonderful brand – it’s affordable, wearable, and very fashion forward”, says Miranda Kerr.

“I love H&M – it’s so exciting to be here, so much fun. The way I dress I mix things together, and I love to shop at H&M, I always find something new when I’m there”, says Jessica Alba.

Make someone feel special on Valentine’s Day with Red Sin from The Fragrance Shop

Red for love. Red for passion. Red for sin. Red Sin, the irresistible fragrance by Christina Aguilera, is available now from one of the leading online and high street perfume retailers, The Fragrance Shop.

The scent would make an ideal Valentine’s gift for anyone looking to spoil their partner on February 14. Designed to make a woman feel seductive, captivating and proud of her femininity, Red Sin is a fragrance that will provide a woman with a true sense of empowerment.

Christina Aguilera’s new fragrance helps to celebrate the beauty of femininity with its sweet, crisp opening notes of red apple, while the fiery spice of cinnamon adds warmth to the perfume and conveys its luscious, velvety overtones.

The middle notes of Red Sin are soft and welcoming, with Red cyclamen, which is also known as the sacred blossom of love, providing a light, floral scent. Cyclamen flowers stand for sincere tenderness and everlasting love, and down through the ages have been famed for their use in love potions. And what could be more relevant on Valentine’s Day?!

When it comes to the base notes, Red Sin relies on the smooth scent of musk, which has become something of a trademark as far as the singer’s fragrances are concerned. Also present are the creamy notes of exotic sandalwood, along with the spicy hint of red ginger. Combined, these ingredients help to make the wearer simply irresistible!

The Fragrance Shop spokesperson Daniel Thompson said: “Christina has for many years produced big hits both in the music and the fragrance world. Her latest scent, Red Sin is her most sexy yet. She’s carefully combined a series of saucy notes to create what is tipped to be the must have Valentines fragrance.”

Red Sin by Christina Aguilera is available online at www.thefragranceshop.co.uk, as well as in the firm’s high street stores.

Boots launches 2012 Christmas ad

Boots has revealed its new TV advertising campaign, which sees the company stepping away from its traditional advertising style to create a piece dedicated to a diverse customer base.

The Christmas 2012 TV advertising campaign features actors recruited from all over the UK to show the rich and diverse range of people that shop at Boots. The new strap line, “Let’s give gifts that keep on giving” emphasises the company’s efforts in creating lifelong customers rather than one off purchasers. Boots has started to align all of its services in this way, looking to become an information hub for customers, supported with easy to access customer service.

To this end, Boots are supporting the ad with the roll out of a bespoke Christmas app that allows users to tag there presents with a video message, allowing customers to send their loved ones a thoughtful gift and greeting. Additionally, Boots is also offering other benefits to its customers, including offering triple Advantage Card points during certain weeks in the run up to Christmas.

Boots has also revamped the Pharmacy side of the business which now features information about potential problems and how to fix them rather than information about specific products. This move sees Boots become one of the first large high street stores to become more conscious of their customers’ daily needs, trying to accurately assess how they can fit into their customers’ lives without being intrusive.

As is communicated in the new Christmas TV ad, Boots is now advancing into providing a more personalised customer experience, looking to make interactions with the company unforgettable.

The TV ad was created by the agency Mother and will be an original 60 second ad followed by separate 30 second story lines.
