HEDI SLIMANE UNVEILED THE NEW CELINE LOGO
#CelineByHediSlimane has come upon us, and not everybody is happy about it, especially on Twitter. Céline—or should we say Celine‘s—Instagram account has been wiped clean to usher in Hedi Slimane’s era as the brand’s new creative, artistic, and image director.
Part of the Slimane revamp is the removal of the aigu accent above the e (é) and reinstating “Paris” on the logo (for clothing and packaging). The “no accent logo” is not really new, though; Celine did not have an é in the ’60s, so the current new/old logo is a sort of homage to the original. Now that Slimane has taken a dip into the brand’s roots, we’re curious to see what else is yet to come and what will be retained for the fashion label.
PACSAFE CELEBRATED ITS 20TH ANNIVERSARY
SEPTEMBER 5 | SM Megamall
For two decades now, Pacsafe has been at the forefront of innovating anti-theft carry solutions to help people enjoy life’s adventures with the knowledge that their gear is safe.
In celebration, the brand launched their Travelsafe and Vibe backpacks. Made with Econyl®, a yarn created from regenerated nylon waste (such as fishing nets), the new luggage are part of Pacsafe’s effort to help reduce the waste that ends up in the oceans. Not-so-fun fact: According to National Geographic, a comprehensive new study conducted by The Ocean Cleanup‘s Boyan Slat and his team of scientists and was published in Scientific Reports, fishing nets account for 46 percent of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, the world’s largest—”larger than Texas”—and most famous collection of floating garbage.
Pacsafe also launched its fall/winter 2018 collection, and one of the highlights was the Citysafe CX. Available in the blue and gray floral print Blue Orchid, it’s made for every style-forward city dweller. Another highlight was the Stylesafe, great for professionals and travellers alike, which comes in a refreshing Kombu Green colorway.
