Andria, May 17 2022 – Just at sundown, against the backdrop of the historic Castel del Monte in Andria, Italy, Alessandro Michele debuted his latest collection for the House. A series of constellations illuminated the runway, progressing a narrative that traverses centuries, geographies, and languages. Here different elements create a particular harmony and suggestion: the Romanesque cut, the gothic frame of the towers and the lightness of the Islamic details, find a safe place to manifest themselves with majesty. Thus, under the full red moon, with a play of lights that tells the charm and mystery of the celestial vault, the collection is staged. There are all the symbolic elements of Alessandro Michele’s creativity, taken up and remixed as only a divinity can do, while bringing the eternal breath of becoming among us mortals: at the center of the collection are the stars and their constellations.

CARHARTT WIP SUMMER 22- BY IDRISS NASSANGAR
For its Summer 2022 campaign, Carhartt WIP has worked with
Idriss Nassangar, a photographer based between Marrakech
and Paris, to create a series of still and moving images. Shot in Morocco, between the cities of Casablanca and Marrakech, the images spotlight garments from the brand’s S/S22 collection, alongside the unique architecture and found street objects from the two locations. Consequently, the campaign is both rich in color and detail, with a cast drawn from friend groups in both cities. This dynamic was important to Nassangar, who described the work as a series of “stolen moments.” A similar sense of spontaneity and intimacy defines the photographer’s work — in particular his personal project ‘A Day With?’, which sees him tenderly portray people and communities through his portraiture.
