A brief recap of what happened in November. News and developments that got a lot of attention–from anniversaries to changes in Creative Directors to premieres and openings.
Change is in the air
In early November, Bottega Veneta announced that Daniel Lee would be leaving the brand after three successful years. In July 2018, the British designer had taken the helm of Bottega Veneta, giving birth to an era of modernity at this legendary Italian fashion brand that resulted in iconic bags, shoes, and accessories. On November 15, Matthieu Blazy was appointed Creative Director of the firm, thus starting a new era for Bottega Veneta. Fans of the aesthetic created by Lee are on the edge of our seats, ready to see whether the French designer will continue down the path of his predecessor or decide to embark on a new one.
Father, Son, and the House of Gucci
Love, glamor, luxury, fashion, and murder: These are the elements of the House of Gucci film. And, as if that weren’t enough, there are performances from Hollywood legends like Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, Jared Leto, Salma Hayek, Al Pacino, Mădălina Ghenea, and others, all under the direction of acclaimed director Ridley Scott. This long-awaited movie hit theaters on November 25th. It’s one that fashionistas are sure to enjoy and that all moviegoers will find delightful. The wardrobe is sublime, there’s so much opulence, and each of the looks is impeccably elegant. Without a doubt, this is a must-see in 2021.
The collab we didn’t know we needed
New York jewelry firm Tiffany & Co. teamed up with streetwear giant Supreme in an unexpected move that has caused a sensation in the industry. As part of the renewal and repositioning of the Tiffany & Co. brand comes this collaboration that includes pearl necklaces with silver tags reading “please return to Supreme,” bracelets with links in the shape of stars, keychains with built-in knives, and heart-shaped earrings. Everything is crafted in silver and branded with both the Tiffany & Co. and Supreme logos. The legendary Tiffany & Co. once again demonstrates its strategy to conquer new generations. I must say that the result is a resounding success.
Happy 100 years
In 1921, Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel revolutionized the perfume industry with the launch of her No. 5 fragrance: a scent made up of more than 80 elements that the designer called “women’s perfume with a woman’s scent.” It features an extravagant floral richness and captivating essence that’s impossible to decipher. Chanel is celebrating 100 years since the launch of this legendary fragrance, a perfume that has been immortalized by Marilyn Monroe, Andy Warhol, and even the Super Bowl. This aroma and its iconic bottle have managed to survive the test of time, becoming synonymous with elegance and luxury.
Taking on NYC
The Italian brand Schiaparelli has become an industry favorite in recent years. Under the vision of Daniel Roseberry, we have seen the surreal and magical spirit of founder Elsa Schiaparelli get reborn. This month, the luxury brand opened a permanent boutique in the iconic New York store Bergdorf Goodman. The space, designed by architect Daniel Romualdez, will offer RTW, leather goods, jewelry, and custom-made pieces. This is the firm’s first boutique. Before, their pieces could only be purchased in the showroom in Paris, so this marks the beginning of an expansion into the retail world for Schaparelli. And, we couldn’t be happier.
This is a brief recap of some of the most important moments in the worlds of fashion, cinema, art, jewelry, and beauty. This news has been the talk of the town this month—one full of excitement.
