Furla launches SS20 campaign with Irina Shayk

Furla taps supermodel Irina Shayk and established Argentinian model Nicolas Ripoll for their Spring Summer 2020 ADV campaign, shot by the internationally renowned photographer Giampaolo Sgura.

This season connects the Italian house with the creative duo Magnus Berger and Tenzin Wild for the creative direction of the campaign, styling by George Cortina and casting by Piergiorgio Del Moro.

 

The result is timeless – a smooth evolution of Furla’s black and white interpretation for Fall Winter 2019, it features a background of soft, almost pale hues and essential styling, giving the centre stage to the products, which are elegant yet colourful and joyful.

The shots examine and translate the codes of Furla with its over 90 years of history and its unmistakably Italian DNA. The models’ effortless and fun attitude ensures a refreshingly unpretentious and naturally beautiful campaign.

In the video Irina and Nicolas playfully explore brand keywords such as ‘Amore’, ‘Modernità’, ‘Eleganza’, ‘Design’, ‘Colore’ and of course ‘Italiana’, further accentuating Furla’s values and deeply Italian essence.

Call Time on Melanoma x UNE PIECE

This Summer, UNE Piece want you to tell them why you are having a #SunConsciousSummer. UNE PIECE has teamed up with Call Time on Melanoma to help raise funds in the fight against Melanoma.

To help raise much needed funds, they’re asking you to post a photo of yourself in UNE PIECE to your Instagram feed, tag @une_piece and @calltimeonmelanoma, and say why you are having a #SunConsciousSummer. They will donate $5 for every post between now and 29 February 2020.

UNE Piece asked four beautiful #unepiecewomen to tell us why they are having a #SunConsciousSummer, below. They can’t wait to see your reasons as to why you are having a #SunConsciousSummer.

“This summer I’m all about having a #SunConsciousSummer because I’m preparing for a kidney transplant… Once I have my kidney transplant I’ll be on a bucket load of immune-suppressant drugs leaving me very vulnerable to developing skin cancers. So I’m all about covering up! Also I want to set a good example of sun safety to my children. ”
— EMMY, @THE.ONEILLS

“This is what my #SunConsciousSummer looks like! Every three months my gran has spots cut out of her skin, she made me promise to take care of mine! I carry my @une_piece everywhere in every colour so I can still enjoy the ocean and sunshine, while keeping my promise! ”
— ABBIE, @INFLOWPILATESANDWELLNESS

“I’m having a #SunConsciousSummer because I want to protect my naturally pale skin from the harmful Queensland rays and reduce the risks of developing Melanoma (which I recently found out was the third most common cancer in Australian women). I am so proud to share this super important message and aim to be a positive role model in all things #sunsafety to help bring more awareness.”
— LAUREN, @IAMLAURENLEIGH

“Who’s having a #SunConsciousSummer? You know I have a firm #foc attitude and after hearing @ginasavage1 last week reminds us you can never be too young or beautiful to dodge melanoma -so I’m even more committed. So wherever I travel I always pack my @une_piece and let’s @calltimeonmelanoma. ”
— MARISA, @HANWORTHHOUSE

TWO SPARROW swimwear: pieces made from plastic bottles and fishing nets found in the ocean

Two Sparrow Australia is a sustainable swimwear brand with a focus on creating comfortable, luxurious swimwear for the socially conscious woman.

All Two Sparrow swimwear fabrics are made of recycled plastic bottles and fishing nets found in the ocean, aiming to reduce the impact fast fashion has on the earth.

It takes over 200 years for regular swimwear made of nylon to degrade in landfill when thrown out (Generic classification based on chemical composition as defined by the Textile Fiber Products Identification aCT (Manufactured Category))

Two Sparrow is aiming to close the loop by ensuring the brand’s swimwear does not end up in landfill by participating in the ‘Recycle your Kini’ program. When a Two Sparrow swimsuit’s life comes to an end, the owner can send a message via the ‘Recycle your Kini’ enquiry form for a return postbag (Recycled Poly Mailer) which will be mailed out free of charge. From there the swimwear will be sent back to its original source to be further recycled, ensuring it does not go to landfill like regular swimwear which can take up to 200 years to degrade if it was not further recycled.

Two Sparrow Australia is the creation of Jade Sewell-Robertson who says, “Sustainability is not just a hot topic – it’s the actions we can all take to ensure we do not continue to deplete our natural resources; reducing the ecological imbalance fast fashion creates.”

There’s a two-part mission to Two Sparrow – Sewell-Robertson wants to be a part of the change in making all fashion sustainable including materials, manufacturing and packaging as well as creating beautiful, flattering styles that encourage happiness in women.

Sewell-Robertson of Two Sparrow is fully focused on reducing the impact fast fashion has on the earth through ensuring the right fit and style using AI technology to encourage confidence, wherever in the world you may be.

Sewell-Robertson’s background is in both business and technology says using AI technology helps to get the right fit encouraging sustainability further through less returns and less waste through appropriate sizing – “through our digital fitter, our products are able to find the perfect size, first time round ensuring maximum confidence when wearing bathers because they actually fit”, says Sewell-Robertson.

“When purchasing swimwear for summer, invest in swimwear that is ethically and sustainably made”, says Sewell Robertson. “Buy less, buy better quality and better fitting swimwear to reduce waste from fast swimwear”.

Not only is Two Sparrow ticking the boxes from an ethical and sustainability point of view, Sewell-Robertson made sure the swimwear brand contained something for everyone. “I wanted to create something I wanted to wear to the beach or that my girlfriends would feel comfortable wearing, says Sewell- Robertson. The launch collection contains underwire tops, soft cups, off the shoulder, high waist, V-bottoms, Midi-bottoms, low back one-pieces and rashie-styles.
