GUCCIFEST Episode 3 by Gus Van Sant and Alessandro Michele

GUCCIFEST Episode 3 by Gus Van Sant and Alessandro Michele

“We could say that this is the age of intermingling. An age marked by a certain lack of faith in our future…there have been other times, in which the same thing happened and a consideration of the present is very important. Distant times, after the Renaissance.” — the great Italian art critic Achille Bonito Oliva shares his optimism for our future with Harry Styles in Episode 3 of Gucci’s 7-part mini-series “Ouverture of Something That Never Ended,” co-directed by Gus Van Sant and Alessandro Michele.

Episode 4 “The Theatre” is available to stream on the GucciFest website starting at 9pm CET. Click here to watch now.

VLOGO Signature Shoot by Olivier Zahm for Purple #34

VLOGO Signature Shoot by Olivier Zahm for Purple #34

“I have always seen fashion as an avant-garde, a playful scene for experimenting new possibilities, for metamorphosis and fun. I truly believe in fashion as a transformative art, celebrating transition, changes, attitudes, multiple personality subjectivity as well as fighting for a non-binary gender oriented culture and society. I’m happy that Valentino is letting me express the true progressive side of fashion in this unique project, subverting the boring language of advertising.

This is my homage to Valentino elegance, Helmut Newton’s humor and to the recent gender revolution which inspires us all.” — OLIVIER ZAHM for Purple’s #UncensoredVLogoSignature shoot.

Purple PRESENTS: New Pandemics SS21

New Pandemics, is a casting and management agency in New York City. The agency was founded to increase LGBTQ+ visibility in the fashion and entertainment industries – where despite what one would think, was sorely lacking in LGBTQ+ representation.

Each season, the roster of talent is photographed not only in accordance with fashion week, but to also document the many faces of the LGBTQ+ community in New York. Many of the talent are artists and creatives who will no doubt leave their mark on the city and culture as a whole.

This season, after so much isolation we used the backdrop of NYC and explored it as more of a landscape, the streets once crowded with tourists... Read More

Courrèges has announced the appointment of designer, NICOLAS DI FELICE, as Artistic Director.

He commented on his appointment, saying: “I’ve always dreamed of Courrèges, with its radical and enveloping universe. It is a house which means a lot to me and in which I see myself. Its simplicity, clarity, not to mention its optimism—I am honoured to keep these values alive, and I hope to do so with as much passion and enthusiasm as the House’s founder”

Eckhaus Latta x Ugg collaboration

Purple is happy to share a selection of the campaign images from the latest collaboration between Eckhaus Latta and the UGG design team.

The collaboration was initially presented at Eckhaus Latta’s Spring / Summer 2020 runway show, with all of the models sporting the eight pairs from the capsule collection. For the campaign, the duo, and photographer, Zoë Ghertner, ventured out to Lake Piru in Calfornia’s Los Padres National Forest to shoot the models in the collection while floating on a dock.

“It was very exciting to think about a UGG shoe for the summer because usually it’s a winter shoe. This dive into the unknown was a lot of fun.”—Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta

Imitation of Christ Relaunch in LA

Exclusive shots from Imitation of Christ’s Relaunch 2020 titled “Americans Not Allowed in Paris”.

Originally conceived as an art collective in 2000, Imitation of Christ was founded by former art students Tara Subkoff and Matthew Damhave. Subkoff had dropped out of art school and had worked as an actress prior to forming the project. The project, according to Subkoff, was quickly “confused” by many to be a fashion line, which led to her developing runway shows. Their shows were often theatrical, political and guerilla style.

Tara Subkoff has relaunched the brand with three young artists Lulu Syracuse, Jersey Bond, and Hudson Schaetzke — creating hand-sewn looks from vintage clothing from their closets, and staging a protest show... Read More
