BOSS works with the sportswear brand Russell Athletic
Earlier this week, BOSS piqued the interest of sports fans (and literally everyone else who asserts themselves in the most comfortable clothing) by announcing that they are teaming up with sportswear brand Russell Athletic for a collection due out next March. “Casualization is an important element in our BOSS collections. Therefore, it is the perfect time to work with a pioneer in this field,” said Ingo Wilts, Chief Brand Officer of Hugo Boss, in a press release. “Russell Athletic invented the sweatshirt almost 100 years ago. It was a great experience to work with a brand with such a legacy and expertise in sportswear.” The publishing house and the creative agency Highsnobiety added a touch of cultural cache to the collaboration to produce their campaign.
You still have a week to order your Holiday BlingBox from Lofttan
For those planning their locally-focused gift list for the year, accessory brand Lofttan is taking orders for their unique offering, the Holiday BlingBox, through Sunday November 1st. The set includes a handmade necklace and a pair of earrings with interchangeable options. For example, the earrings can be taken apart for a smaller style.
A purchase of the BlingBox, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Lydia Ruth Fund, founded by Lofttan’s owner and lead designer April Mitchell-Boudreau in honor of her great-grandmother, also offers the option to do a one-hour zoom on Call Mitchell-Boudreau to learn more about their craft and the different ways the pieces can be worn. “With my indigenous roots and my experience as a mother, wife, friend and person on this beautiful planet, I know that it is important not only to give our customers the opportunity to express themselves creatively by playing with the jewelry, but also creating a product that has an awareness, ”said Mitchell-Boudreau in a statement. “Less waste, focused on slow fashion and convertibles – the BlingBOX is something that will never go out of style. And with every purchase, we donate a portion of the proceeds to a fund that focuses on providing scholarships to indigenous students in the arts – as we truly believe in the healing powers of the arts. ”
