The Moncler Genius SS21 collection by Jonathan Anderson

The Moncler Genius SS21 collection by Jonathan Anderson

pier · 1 month ago · Style

Reality and abstraction, passion for craftsmanship, nature and the art of creating things.
These concepts have been re-elected and reinterpreted with unpredictable enthusiasm by Jonathan Anderson in the Spring/Summer 2021 collection of Moncler Genius, the second created within the Moncler Genius project, where he explores his British roots and those of his JW Anderson brand, combining the Moncler spirit with his archival garments, reinterpreted through the codes of the nomadic traveler and passion for adventure.

As always in JW Anderson’s work, garments are meant to be fluid, genderless.

The eyelets and triple stitching typical of sailor wear characterize parkas, field jackets, Bermuda shorts and cargo pants, but also jersey t-shirts and sweatshirts that, with vibrant contrasting color blocks, highlight details such as hoods, pockets and closures. The color-block jacket together with degradé vests, pants and Bermuda shorts are also available in sustainable versions. The outer fabrics are made from ECONYL®, a regenerated nylon derived from ocean and land waste.

Northern Ireland sunset hues transfer to anoraks and long jersey t-shirt dresses, lending a dreamy note to the collection’s utilitarian mood, punctuated by field jackets, culottes and garment-dyed trench coats. A vintage blanket, on the other hand, inspires an entire selection of pieces with sophisticated quilting, from the long sustainable cotton coat to the cropped jacket, from the draped feminine dress to combinations of pastel-colored tops and Bermuda shorts.

Moncler Genius

Starting from the idea of travel, and in particular the nomadic one, the collection is inspired by a symbolic figure who dreams of an itinerant condition but with the full awareness that the only possible destination is the here and now. To celebrate the launch of the collection, Moncler and JW Anderson are inaugurating a multidisciplinary cultural program, offering a sensory immersion into the itinerant world. 

Moncler Genius

Moncler Genius launches its first podcast series and a collaboration with global streaming service MUBI, the activation charts a visual and auditory journey that makes connections between Jonathan Anderson’s conceptual fantasies and different platforms.

Moncler Genius

Just like the Moncler Genius SS21 collection, the selection of podcasts and films move along the border between concreteness and abstraction: the podcasts come to life on Spotify where the most progressive personalities in the world of fashion discuss current topics. The first episode, presented by the artistic director of the Serpentine Galleries Hans Ulrich Obrist, describes Jonathan Anderson’s personal journey and eclectic experience of traveling to what inspired his second collection for Moncler Genius. 

The selection of films on MUBI, on the other hand, ranges from art-house short films to cinematic tales dedicated to travel experiences.

Moncler Genius

Jonathan Anderson’s Moncler Genius SS21 collection, available here, also includes a limited-edition zine that encompasses a lengthy conversation between the designer and Hans Ulrich Obrist, interspersed with a selection of images shot specifically to celebrate the collection.

More than bodies, Rony Hernandes’ photography

More than bodies, Rony Hernandes’ photography

Claudia Fuggetti · 12 hours ago · Photography

Rony Hernandes is a model and photographer who uses body exploration as an expressive means to embark on new paths and depict characters who fully explore their sexuality without taboos. The artist tells his approach to photography as follows:

“Photography became a part of my life when I realized that I could go through what I felt and felt with the camera in hand, I express myself through self-portraits and stories.”

All images have a perfect composition and tend to highlight with great elegance body aesthetic harmony in every shape. The management of light is accurate and suggestive; nothing is left to chance, indeed, behind every shot there is a large study that contributes to a global representation of multiple moods that arouse strong emotions in the viewer.

On Rony’s Instagram profile you can find other very interesting images, in the meantime have a look at our gallery.

Carlota Guerrero and the naked beauty of women

Carlota Guerrero and the naked beauty of women

Giulia Guido · 19 hours ago · Photography

Simple beauty without censorship. That’s exactly how you could describe the art of Carlota Guerrero.

Born in Barcelona, Carlota is a self-taught artist and has been passionate about photography since she was a teenager. Over the years, the style of her shots has proved to be perfect for high fashion editorials, working for brands like Givenchy and Dior, for artistic performances, but also for advertising campaigns like The Force Is Female for Nike.

What has made the work of Spanish photographer known and appreciated internationally are her photographs that portray the beauty of female bodies. There are no veils, nothing hides the shapes of the bodies that are immortalized by Carlota’s lens.

The women portrayed represent their freedom, freedom to show themselves and their bodies, not because they are obliged to do so, but because they are free to do so.

Discover more about Carlota on her site and Instagram profile.

Self-Portrait, Sofia Masini delicate portraits

Self-Portrait, Sofia Masini delicate portraits

Giulia Pacciardi · 19 hours ago · Photography

From the pictorial self-portraits of the past to the self-portraits taken with a smartphone, humans have always been fascinated by the photographic representation of themselves.
In fact, to question the meaning of beauty and identity, the Milanese photographer Sofia Masini created a series of surreal nudes against the backdrop of an empty apartment.

Her portraits, which are very delicate in colours are very strong in form. Distorted nudes, faceless figures jamming into the body, in strange corners created by the same arts.

A project that, according to the words of the photographer herself, allowed her to listen to her body, look inside without filters and find a safe space where she can express her feelings without fear.

Between reality and fiction, the photography by Ibai Acevedo

Between reality and fiction, the photography by Ibai Acevedo

Giulia Guido · 19 hours ago · Photography

Born in 1984 in Barcelona, Ibai Acevedo is a photographer who, thanks to his shots, takes us into a world on the border between dream and reality. 

The one between Ibai and photography was neither a love born as a child, nor a love at first sight: there was a time, that seems so far away in which he was a graphic designer and in which he spent the summers peacefully, without having to take pictures of anything. Then something slowly changed. 

Ibai Acevedo

Today Ibai Acevedo has found in the camera the means to express emotions and states of mind. To do this he has developed a very particular style, able to capture us and never let us go. 

Through an almost exasperated and unnatural use of lights and colors, Ibai Acevedo manages to transform ordinary subjects and places, such as a bedroom or a bath in the sea, into something extraordinary and surreal. 

We recognize everything in his shots, each element seems real but at the same time impossible.

Ibai Acevedo’s portfolio is a journey into the oneiric, ready to dive in?
