French fashion designer Olivier Rousteing is known for tailoring formfitting silhouettes, but it’s his love of football — dating back to childhood — that sits at the heart of the NikeLab x Olivier Rousteing: Football Nouveau collection. The second collaboration in NikeLab’s Summer of Sport series blends Nike innovation with Rousteing’s creative vision.
“Fashion is usually about the catwalk and the glamour, but with Nike it was about performance and the athletes,” explains Rousteing. “What I love about this collection is that we are integrating the iconic style of football into sport style.”
For the first time in Pantone’s history of picking a color of the year, there have been two hues chosen for 2016. These are two positively gorgeous hues, both of which have been used in the spring/summer 2016 collections by designers everywhere.
Dutch design duo Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren will stop the production of their label’s RTW after the FW 2015 season. They explained they want to concentrate on Viktor & Rolf’s couture collections, fragrances and licensed businesses.
As they point out, it is a strategic decision to position the Viktor & Rolf brands in the highest luxury segment of fashion.
Horsting also added: “We feel a strong need to refocus on our artistic roots. We have always used fashion to communicate, it is our primary means of artistic expression. Moreover, the label’s rtw line had started to feel creatively restricting. By letting go of it, we gain more time and freedom.”
