Urban Spirit: AX SS18

Urban Spirit: AX SS18

Urban attitude with a denim soul.

Spring Summer for Armani Exchange is all about men and the big cities – cheering on the loudness and brightness of the urban jungle.

The classic hues of blue, paired with unsual mix of fabrics and materials, give AX SS18 the refreshing twist it deserves. Logo tees, geometrical shapes, hoodies are paired with loose leggings tailored to the always on-the-go lifestyle of guys in the city

The palette includes black and white, military green, and pop and fluorescent colours. The collection is capped off with looks reminiscent of American college style, with an air of preppy New York.

We Believe: Bershka SS18

We Believe: Bershka SS18

This year, Bershka celebrates the artists, the free spirits, the era definers; the self-expressors; the boundary pushers; and the rule breakers who defy expectations.

Bershka’s 2018 Spring/Summer presentation is all about making music, moments, and memories. 

Bershka travelled to London’s coolest boroughs and beyond to find the up-and-comers: the new talent shaping the future of culture in the UK. The artists. Style breakers. Rhymers. Dancers. Thought provokers. The darers.

13 movers and shakers join together to tell a story of uniqueness, of self-expression. 

Through their art, music, style, and social influence they are speaking up, shouting out, sparking passion, prompting others to do the same. They are taking cues from those who inspire them, and turning their inspiration into new forms of creativity. And by igniting their generation, they are shaping the future.

Bershka believes in the power of self-expression. Sure, it’s a way to set trends. But it’s also a way to influence what happens next in the world. 

The future belongs to those who dare. To them – and to all young-minded people – Bershka says: We believe in you.

 

People can find whatever emotion they’re looking for in a piece of music.” – Sam, Musician

People always ask me what I want to do in the future, and I say: I can do anything.”
–Benji, Dancer

“We believe people should have the right to love whoever they want.”
– Philip + Gerritt, Fashion Designers
