Guess launches capsule collection with singer

TO CELEBRATE Indonesian singer NIKI’s debut album, Moonchild, GUESS Originals has collaborated with the singer to create a limited capsule edition that brings the artist’s vision of a fictional realm and character to life. The collection is composed of stylish and comfortable pieces which are very much in line with the recent work/study-from-home outfit trends that we’re seeing now. The pieces come in dark purple and black moody tones and pastel pink purple for its graphic prints. The GUESS Originals x NIKI ‘Moonchild’ capsule collection pieces range in price from P1,898 to P5,498 and include a women’s tank top that pairs with a matching biker short in a constellation print. The rest of the collection suits both men and women, including a selection of short sleeved T-shirts, hoodies, jogger pants, and baseball hats in both black and purple hues that mimic the lunar-themed album imagery. The garments feature NIKI’s signature Moonchild logo across the back.

Gucci collaborates with North Face

ITALIAN luxury house Gucci revealed its collaboration with activewear brand The North Face that celebrates the spirit of exploration. Whether literal exploration of places and cultures or the more metaphorical adventures encouraged today by Creative Director Alessandro Michele, Gucci has always catered to the curious, presenting its clothes as tools that push the wearer into different territories. This special cross-category collection for men and women comprises ready-to-wear, soft accessories, luggage, and shoes, as well as some more unexpected pieces linked to the outdoor world of The North Face, such as tents and sleeping bags. The North Face x Gucci Collection is in line with the commitments of both the two brands to eco-sustainable activities.  The luggage contains ECONYL®, a nylon fabric sourced from used material (fish nets, carpets, and other scraps) that can be recycled and recreated, aiding in decreasing its ecological footprint. The color palette was inspired by the 1970s and is based on The North Face materials library. Archival fabrics have been partially incorporated into the collection to give them a new life. Packaging for the pieces come in vibrant pink featuring The North Face X Gucci logo. The garment and carrier bags, boxes and pouches have been strategically designed to reduce their environmental impact at every step of creation. All paper and cardboard come from sustainably managed forest sources and an uncoated paper has been used to ensure it is fully recyclable. To reduce the amount of paper, boxes are equipped with handles to avoid using shopping bags. Larger items come in shopping bags and cotton covers without boxes.
