It’s getting really hot in Paris so we would love a solution to avoid melting!

Google’s We Wear Culture, a series of exhibitions to showcase the history & future of fashion

Back when I was working in the advertising industry, I had the chance to visit Google Paris’ headquarters, for the launch of their Cultural Institute (which is now called Google Arts & Culture). As one of the many successful results of Google’s famous “20 percent of time” policy (where Google gives the opportunity to its collaborators to develop side projects), Google Arts & Culture partnered with over 1,300 museums and foundations to digitise artworks, making them accessible on the Google Arts & Culture platform. Now, they are launching the fashion part of this initiative, with over 3,000 digitalised fashion archives. We visited the Paris exhibition yesterday.

Start of a new era? Why LVMH’s 24 Sevres’ launch might be the industry’s Moment of Truth

Following its declarations from 3 months ago, LVMH is poised to launch its own multi-brand e-commerce site at the beginning of June, offering all of its brands under a single umbrella, available for shipping to 75 countries. The website will be branded after its department store Le Bon Marché: named “24 Sevres” after the Rue de Sevres location of the department store, the platform will offer fashion, cosmetics and luggage products from LVMH’s own portfolio as well as brands from outside the group (it is also the name of Le Bon Marché’s customer-loyalty program, which is being extended to encompass online sales). Under wraps for 18 months, the project previously codenamed Babylon is now ready for the real world.

Why futurecraft 4D shows Adidas isn’t playing defense when it comes to Fashion Tech

These recent years, Adidas’ stances in favour of a movement born from the use of new technologies have been both numerous and surprising. This bet has seen the brand collaborating with tech companies from time to time, in order to create pieces inspired by data from athletes, tailor-made for them. These commitments, destined to make the brand one of the most prominent when it comes to conceive innovative development methods, contributed to give the german manufacturer an undeniable legitimacy. With the creation of the future craft 4D, the brand with the 3 stripes aims at revolutionise product conception, with help from the molecular science field, through its collaboration with the californien tech company CARBON, creator of the 3D Digital Light Synthesis impression method.
