Lolo Zouai stars in new Coach campaign

Published

on

For its latest fashion campaign, US label Coach has teamed up with a host of familiar faces, including Franco-Algerian singer Lolo Zouai. The “High Highs to Low Lows” singer features in a star-studded advertorial for the label’s Camo Collection alongside the likes of “Black Panther” star Michael B. Jordan, Blondie frontwoman Debbie Harry, former NBA player Jeremy Lin, and US actor Quincy.

Bladi Corniel, a photographer who is part of A$AP Rocky’s AWGE creative agency, shot and directed the advertorial, featuring clothing from Coach’s camouflage print range with a neon update.

The all-gender collection includes bags, T-shirts, sneakers, joggers and hoodies. The original camo collection was first introduced in 2015 and the new neon update gives a nod to the energy and attitude of Coach’s New York City hometown.

For her part, 26-year-old Zouai can be seen wearing a white shearling vest over a camo T-shirt that is tucked into brown leather pants. She was holding a camo print umbrella because it was raining on set, she recently told Nylon magazine.

“The shoot was actually on a very, very rainy day,” recalled the Brooklyn-based singer. “It was pouring. We spent a bunch of time doing the glam and then I had to hide under trees and it felt like a rainforest. But the shoot was great. The photographer, Bladi Corniel, was amazing, and it just was super fun and easy.”

The artist, who was born Laureen Zouai to a French mother and an Algerian father in Paris, has had a working relationship with Coach and its creative director Stuart Vevers for a couple of years now.

In addition to the new campaign for Coach’s Camo Collection, Zouai previously featured in the brand’s Fall 2019 campaign. That advertorial, shot by renowned photographer Juergen Teller in New York, was Zouai’s first campaign for Coach.

An official member of the “Coach Family,” she also previously appeared in the brand’s Sunwear 2019 ad.

It appears that the fashion world is starting to take note of Zouai. The artist, slated to open for Dua Lipa’s “Future Nostalgia” tour, also has campaigns for Tommy Jeans under her belt and has previously performed at New York Fashion Week for Saint Laurent.

The royals have returned to formalwear in full force. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, along with Prince Charles, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, came together to attend the glamorous world premiere of No Time to Die, the newest James Bond feature. The group arrived together at London’s Royal Albert Hall for the big event on Tuesday evening (28 September).

The premiere’s audience not only includes two future kings, but also healthcare workers and members of the military, who joined the royals for the special outing. Daniel Craig, of course, was also in attendance, celebrating his fifth and final time playing James Bond.

After many delays due to the pandemic, No Time to Die will finally arrive in cinemas on 30 September. In addition to Craig, the movie also stars Léa Seydoux, Lashana Lynch, Ana de Armas and Naomie Harris among others. Notably, Fleabag creator and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge contributed to the screenplay, alongside Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, and the movie’s director, Cary Joji Fukunaga.

The newest iteration in the franchise follows Bond as he reemerges from retirement to help a friend. The log line notes: “Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.”

The royals often turn out for Bond premieres. William and Kate attended the premiere of the last Bond movie, Spectre, back in 2015, accompanied by Prince Harry. Prince Charles and Camilla also attended the premiere of Skyfall in 2012.

Donatella Versace pumped energy into Milan Fashion week with a star-studded runway and guest list — with the likes of US-Palestinian model Gigi Hadid and British-Albanian pop superstar Dua Lipa hitting the catwalk in a number of sultry looks.

The collection was strong on the fashion house’s identifying markers: Bright colors, safety pins and lusciously silky foulards.

British singer and emerging fashion icon Dua Lipa opened the runway show in a skin-baring black suit held together with colored safety pins as her song “Physical” blasted through the venue and closed it in a liquidy fuchsia skirt and corset.

In between, she was joined by Naomi Campbell, brightly clad in a hot-pink suit and orange shirt, Gigi Hadid in a snug latex black dress with just a silky flash of turquoise and pink, and Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon Ciccone, in a metallic silvery dress.

Black suits and dresses with tiny flashes of color in pins and foulards that peeked from hemlines and slits formed the beginning of the show. Toward the end, the colors grew ever more bold until they burst into a vivid palette of pink, aquamarine, seafoam green, acid green and yellow.

“The foulard is a fundamental component of Versace’s heritage and character,” Versace said in the show notes. “This season (it) turns everything on its head, it is no longer fluid or dreamy, the scarf is provocative, sexy, wound tight.”

Menswear was more relaxed, with floral suits, sportier varsity jackets with mesh tops, or bright leather jackets paired with tight T-shirts and jeans.

Front-row guests at the show included Milan’s own fashion influencer-turned-entrepreneur Chiara Ferragni and her husband, the singer Fedez, US influencer-turned-actress Addison Rae and actress Bella Thorne with her Italian beau, singer Benjamin Mascolo.

Meanwhile, Italian fashion house Prada returned to the live runway for the first time since February 2020, when the creative partnership between Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons was announced.

The collection was dotted with trains, corsets and evening gowns as Simons bemoaned the “irreality” of an evening gown “however beautiful,” as many gowns have spent the pandemic hanging in closets.

“These clothes can become complicated — evening dresses, historical costume. We want to make it uncomplicated, easy, that feels modern,” Simons said.

Miranda Kerr dazzles in a dress designed by Nicolas Jebran

Australian model Miranda Kerr showed off a sleek dress by Lebanese designer Nicolas Jebran on Instagram on Friday, giving fans a sneak peek of the outfit she wore to celebrate model Jasmine Tookes’s wedding earlier this month.

Earlier in September, Victoria’s Secret model Tookes married Snapchat’s Juan David Borrero in his home country of Ecuador in the presence of family and friends, including co-founder and CEO of Snap Inc. Evan Spiegel and his wife, Kerr.

For the occasion, Kerr, 38, wore a silky, rouched dress by Jebran. Chosen by celebrity stylist Jessica Paster, the beige, form-fitting gown boasted a thigh-high slit and an off-the-shoulder neckline. Kerr finished off the look with glittering Jimmy Choo heels and a gem encrusted clutch. When it came to her beauty look, Kerr opted for natural makeup and loose hair, styled in beach waves.

And she wasn’t the only one to choose a Lebanese design. The most important dress of the evening came courtesy of Lebanese couturier Zuhair Murad.

Tookes showed off a custom wedding gown by Murad that featured an illusion, lace-embroidered neckline, a fitted bodice and a voluminous skirt with a train. She paired the exquisite wedding dress with a sheer, floor-trailing veil. With its long sleeves and its high mandarin neck, the gown was equal parts chic and conservative.

The 30-year-old, who got engaged to the current Vice President of Ecuador’s son last year in Utah, first hinted at wearing a Zuhair Murad creation on her big day during the designer’s Fall 2021 couture show in Paris in July.

In a social media post, she wrote: “Such a pleasure to be in Paris and watch my favorite designer @zuhairmuradofficial. Ten years ago, I used to walk his couture shows and now I wear his dresses on almost every red carpet. Something even more special is coming very soon.”

The couple tied the knot in the presence of family and friends-slash-bridesmaids, which included fellow Victoria’s Secret models Shanina Shaik, Sara Sampaio and Lais Ribiero, in the Church of San Francisco in the city of Quito on Sept. 5, after putting their plans on hold due to the pandemic.
