A BETTER MISTAKE: THE PERSONA DROP
A better Mistake, the Milan based label, drops the first segment of their FW22 Collection. The Persona Drop is diving into an exploration of the human Ego whose purpose is the discovery of the deeper self. For the creative Director MADAME_INC humans are like machines and need to discover their self to become their best versions. This image is reflected in all of A Better Mistake’s creations, by motivating people to take a moment to reflect and focus in a world of constant distractions. With the Persona collection, ABM offers a second skin where the technical aspect of the garments fuses with the warm and softness of viscose. The collection includes a long dress, a sweater, a technical bra, a scarf and gloves with structured lines that highlight the silhouette of the body and create a futuristic aesthetic.

BOTTEGA VENETA CAMPAIGN WINTER 22
The winter campaign by creative director Matthieu Blazy for Bottega Veneta is characterized by a multitude of point of views: from photographers and cinematographers to the cross-generational models. The campaign brings different people together and approaches the campaign as a collective. Working with several young image-makers who had never shot fashion before as well as established photographers and cinematographers, each brought a fresh and unscripted sense of seeing to the collection. Blazy’s notions of craft in motion and quiet power come to life in 41 still and moving images shot mainly on film. With photographers and models building relationships along the way, each brings their own experiences, movements and stories to Bottega Veneta’s clothing and accessories.

SHYGIRL – NYMPH
Shygirl presents her new debut album, which will be released on the end of September. Coming from the UK, Shygirl is a new queen of cool who has become known in pop/electronic music for her sultry flows and casual confidence with the club smashes of her Cruel Practice EP (2018) and Alias EP (2020). With her first full-length project Nymph, we get a glimpse into Shygirl’s more vulnerable side as she finds the freedom to reveal the personal. With her penchant for 90’s pop and R&B, Shygirl is influenced by Madonna’s Ray of Light era and artists such as Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, Sade, and Bjork, showing great emotional qualities in her work. The lead single Firefly offers a glittering melancholy, full of lonely fantasies and complaints about a one-sided love. I guess I need to hear the truth this time / You kept me waiting on a lie…. Waiting on a lie, she sings, soaring over lush, danceable breaks. Nymph arrives during a busy time for popular newcomer Shygirl. The album came together when she took a moment to reflect on this life-changing time. In a house in Brighton on the UK’s coast, Shygirl worked closely and freely with her friends and previous collaborators Karma Kid, Mura Masa, Sega Bodega and Cosha to create the foundation of the album. Shygirl jumps through a vast range of emotions and situations dealing with intimacy as well as self-love, introspection, and prowess making use of countless vocal tones and flows.

 Alexander MCQUEEN AW2022 Campaign by Paolo Roversi
Alexander McQueen introduces the AW22 Campaign photographed by Paolo Roversi, featuring Awar, Lucia, Florence, Celina, Wang and Achenrin. Alexander McQueens collection is inspired by the forest and especially mushrooms like Mycelium. Mycelium is a root-like structure of a fungus that consists of a mass of branched, thread-like hyphae. Especially mycelium, the reality of nature is as a community much older than ourselves. Mushroom colonies are made of mycelium, so Alexander McQueen decided to start his own mushroom colonies in fashion, inspired by the notion of community. The collection is a metaphor for the connection and communion between people, between all of us.
