Louis Vuitton Men’s x Tyler, the Creator

Pharrell Williams is bringing his friends and family into the fold at Louis Vuitton as the recently appointed creative director of menswear. After composing the soundtrack for Louis Vuitton’s fall 2022 men’s show, musician Tyler, the Creator has been invited back—this time in an even larger capacity: to conceive a spring 2024 men’s capsule collection for the brand. Tyler’s preppy tilt is clear within the collection, which boasts cable-knit sweaters, knee-high shorts, and matching sets. While the pieces are relatively trans-seasonal, spring is represented in the form of colors, with sky blues and pastel pinks brightening up deep chocolate brown and black, choices that deliciously evoke a Parisian patisserie. The iconic LV emblem is also re-introduced here, this time hand-drawn by Tyler. Paired with sketches of the artist’s own Airedale Terriers, daisies, and even some food items, the patterns in the collection add a touch of whimsy often associated with Tyler. “My main focus was making things I would wear all the time,” Tyler said in a statement. “I dress the same in a meeting as I do a performance or grocery store trip, so hand-drawing the monogram felt like the perfect balance to me.”

Valentino x Sartiano’s

If you get hungry while shopping at Valentino’s newly opened SoHo boutique on 98 Prince Street, you can now pop right across the street and grab a bite at the brand’s very pink pop-up café located beneath the Mercer Hotel. Valentino has taken over the recently-opened Sartiano’s and turned it into the Valentino Café, a bright pink oasis within one of Manhattan’s most popular shopping districts. If you have trouble finding the location, just look for the pink-tinted windows emblazoned with a quote from Valentino’s creative director, Pierpaolo Piccioli, “Love is the answer, always.” Once inside, one will find a pink paradise with walls and tables designed to match the hue now synonymous with the Italian house. The menu, created by Sartiano’s executive chef, Chris Lewnes, and culinary director, Alfred Portale, features numerous dishes and drinks rendered in the bright shade, including a strawberry-based speciality cocktail, pastel cannolis, and lattes decorated with pink foam. The Valentino Café is open from February 7th to the 14th from 8AM to 10PM.

Tory Burch x Humberto Leon

American fashion designers Tory Burch and Humberto Leon have come together and opened a new Tory Burch concept store on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles while the brand’s Rodeo Drive location remains under construction. With a facade decorated by the German photographer Walter Schels—whom Burch referenced in her last collection—the temporary spot is the perfect place to show off the wares from resort 2024. Schels’s large-scale image of a mouse is plastered outside the store, while cats and pink ceramic seats designed by artist Aranza Garcia of Chuch Estudio in Merida, Mexico greet the visitors. A shag rug reminiscent of a cat tower gives the space a whimsical and inviting feel. A range of items from Burch’s collection, curated by Leon, is on offer as well. In addition, the boutique carries the first drop of Burch’s spring 2024 collection, as well as a capsule of t-shirts, sweatshirts, and totes, designed by Burch and Leon and featuring abstract portraits by Schels.

Madonna x Jean Paul Gaultier

Who hasn’t admired Madonna’s famous Jean Paul Gaultier cone bra corset top ever since the singer debuted it during her “Blond Ambition” tour in 1990? The design is one of the most iconic in fashion history, and is still referenced by creative directors around the world to this day. Now, over three decades after that memorable style moment, Madonna and JPG are teaming up once again, this time to make the epochal piece more accessible to the public. The duo is selling a t-shirt featuring a screenprint of the corset, so you can wear a JPG cone bra to the grocery store without feeling overdressed. All proceeds from the shirt—which retails for $150—will go to Raising Malawi, Madonna’s nonprofit, which helps to provide critical medical interventions to orphans and vulnerable children at the Mercy James Center for Pediatric Surgery and Intensive Care in Blantyre, Malawi. “Funds from these t-shirts will ensure that thousands more children will receive the surgical care they need to thrive and survive,” Madonna wrote in her Instagram caption—meaning you can look good and do good at the same time.

Saint Laurent’s New Champs-Élysées Store

According to Saint Laurent’s creative director, Anthony Vaccarello, Yves Saint Laurent had an unrealized wish: for his name to be written “in fiery letters” on the Champs-Élysées. Now, 15 years after the house founder’s death, that dream has finally come true. Saint Laurent just opened its largest flagship on none other than the iconic Avenue des Champs-Élysées in Paris. The building’s facade pays homage to the restored Haussmann design, while the interior is a celebration of modern luxury, featuring a double-height foyer with a neon light sculpture by artist Cerith Wyn Evans. A curved, black-lacquered wood staircase leads shoppers between floors, and a serene private garden allows for an escape from the busy city. Throughout the marble displays one will find the house’s complete offerings, including men’s and women’s ready-to-wear, handbags, shoes, accessories, and fine jewelry. In addition, a special assortment of items has been curated for the space, making a trip to the new store all the more necessary. The must-visit flagship is now open at 123 Avenue des Champs-Élysées.

Zara Atelier Collection 04

Zara’s atelier collections were conceived in 2021 to demonstrate the highest expression of craft exhibited by the retailer—and with its first three drops, that end has been achieved. Focusing on one wardrobe staple—the coat, the skirt, the dress—Zara Atelier has pushed the boundaries of conventionality in each piece. Now, with the fourth iteration of the line, the brand is focusing on the jacket. In this limited-edition collection, Zara takes the simple concept of a jacket and explores six different expressions of that garment. Guipure lace decorates the lapel of “The Poetess Jacket,” while metal hardware fittingly covers “The Rebel.” All the artistic takes can be seen on supermodel Kristen McMenamy, who stars as the face of the campaign in shots by renowned photographer (and frequent W magazine collaborator) Tim Walker. McMenamy dons each jacket in the ads, embodying the character proposed by the respective design in front of a backdrop that suggests some sort of abandoned gallery. It’s a theatrical collection, making McMenamy the perfect muse. Zara Atelier Collection 04, which ranges in price from $299 to $799, is available now at Zara.com and in select stores.

Emma Chamberlain x Warby Parker

For the first time, Emma Chamberlain has linked up with eyewear brand Warby Parker on a collaboration. The range features six different frames—which can be purchased with any lenses: reading glasses, full prescription, sunnies, etc.—with colorful options, wire-rimmed styles, and even a twist on the New York-based label’s classic “Durand” and “Lonnie” frames. Starting at $95, each pair represents a design that is beloved by Chamberlain, who herself bought her first Warby glasses when she was 16 years old in the Hayes Valley neighborhood of S.F. To celebrate the collaboration, Warby Parker is creating a pop-up on the other side of the country—its Greene Street location in Manhattan, to be exact. Dubbed Warby Park, the temporary space features greenery, a park bench, a fountain of Chamberlain Coffee, and pigeons (the Internet personality’s favorite animal, which also made its way into the campaign shot by Emily Lipson). For more, visit warbyparker.com.

Frame x Ritz Paris

If you’re still scrambling for some holiday gift ideas, why not consider the cozy, superchic offerings from California clothing brand Frame’s latest collaboration with the Ritz Paris? On November 29, the two iconic brands released their third outing together, which features an array of ready-to-wear options like cashmere cardigans and sweaters, velvet slippers, silky pajama sets, swimwear, and much more. Many of the pieces in this capsule feature Ritz Paris’s famed crest—while others feature more cheeky imagery, like sweaters and bombers that read “Privacy Please.” We’re big fans of the high-waist denim featuring an embroidered swan on the back pockets, and the black-and-white striped bathing suit with deep V’s all around. For more information and to shop the collection, visit Frame’s website.

Moncler x Sacai

Sacai designer Chitose Abe—who cut her teeth in the ’90s at Comme des Garçons with Rei Kawakubo and guest designed Jean Paul Gaultier’s fall 2021 collection a couple years back—has linked with the go-to luxe outerwear brand, Moncler, on a capsule collection. Although the designer unveiled the collaboration in January, during her runway show at Paris Fashion Week, it is now available to shop—just in time for dipping temperatures. Abe has given the Italian label’s signature down coats and outdoorsy wears her feminine-meets-utility touch, infusing jackets with mixed textiles and lending a high-fashion bent to the designs. The capsule consists of four looks—two full looks for men, and two for women—in black, off-white, and ecru colorways. Each outfit comes in a multipiece format that can be disconnected and reconnected in a new way: jackets can be attached to trousers to become a boilersuit; zip open the sleeves of a puffer to transform it into a cape. The capsule doesn’t stop at outdoorsy, mountaineering-inspired clothing, either—there are also bibs, pleated dresses, convertible trousers, and suit jackets on offer. The Moncler x Sacai collection will retail as full looks only, and is available now in select Moncler and Sacai boutiques.

Dolce & Gabbana x Neiman Marcus

Spring is coming early this year thanks to Dolce & Gabbana and Neiman Marcus. The two fashion powerhouses have teamed up on a new exclusive collection titled Italian Gardens—inspired by flowers, of course, but also 1960s fashion. The clothes explode in color, with a bright turquoise and yellow acting as a base for much of the womenswear, decorated with pink peonies and blue hydrangeas. Other pieces, meanwhile, are rendered in black, allowing the blooms to truly pop off a silk blazer and matching, cropped cigarette pants. The collection, which features menswear and accessories, along with womenswear, is available now on neimanmarcus.com.

Barbie Ferreira x Levi’s

America’s favorite denim company, Levi’s, is taking a moody turn—and Euphoria star Barbie Ferreira is leading the legacy brand down this path. The model and actress paired with Levi’s for a capsule collection inspired by both her love for beautiful scenes as well as some of the costuming in her favorite movies. While Ferreira doesn’t specify what films were on the mood board for this collection, if one had to guess, they might place Donnie Darko at the top of that list, as a bunny doodle from artist Ben Evans lives throughout the pieces. This macabre version of the woodland creature feels at home on the legs of black 501 ’90s jeans, or on the interior of a long denim coat. And the edition of a black corset and a chartreuse pleated skirt allows the collection to live “between a dark fairytale and a nostalgic dream,” just as Ferreira planned. In images shot by Petra Collins, Ferreira shows off the collection in an abandoned field, adding to the eerie feel of the collaboration. Barbie Ferreira x Levi’s is available now on Levi.com and urbanoutfitters.com, as well as in select Levi’s and Urban Outfitters stores.

Méga by Dani Michelle

The mind behind Kendall Jenner’s best looks is finally trying her hand at designing—though for now, she’s moving from clothes to something with slightly more lasting power. Celebrity stylist Dani Michelle, known for her work with Hailey Bieber, Elsa Hosk, and, of course, Jenner, is turning her attention to the accessory space with a new line of jewelry called Méga. Inspiration for the collection stemmed from mixing the high fashion world—where Michelle works—with timeless vintage designs. The rings are meant to be stacked; the earrings, to be curated among many piercings, and the necklaces, to be layered. The idea is that when one is wearing great jewelry, the clothes don’t need to do as much work. Made in 14K finished 925 sterling silver and decorated with zircon, the pieces fall between $22 - $220, making them the perfect holiday gift for anyone on your wish list. You can shop the jewelry now at megajewelry.com.

Rabanne x H&M

H&M’s latest collaboration with a high fashion brand has the Swedish label traveling through parties of the past. The multinational clothing company has partnered with Spain’s Rabanne for a collection inspired by the colorful, futuristic, and shimmering creations of its founder and namesake, Paco Rabanne. Comprised of womenswear, menswear, and accessories, Rabanne x H&M was made for the dance floor. Metal mesh dresses, skirts, and tops hang with fringe, while a purple sequined crop top can be worn alone or with matching trousers for maximum impact. The ’60s live on in the form of paillette-covered minidresses; the ’70s peek through in groovy orange-and-black jacquard pieces that would feel right at home at Studio 54. Of course, the collection also features a more affordable version of Rabanne’s famous 1969 Nano bag, offered in a silver, green, and mixed metal option and retailing for $259. If you’re looking for the perfect New Year’s Eve ensemble, your search is over. You’ll be the life of the party, dancing the night away in a gold sequin crop top with a matching flared skirt. And don’t worry, if you get cold, a brown faux-fur coat and a scarf are both available to slip on for warmth—without compromising style. Rabanne x H&M is now available in selected stores and online at hm.com.

Ugg x Telfar

Never accuse Ugg or Telfar of messing with a good thing. The California-based shoe brand is partnering once again with cult favorite New York City label for their seventh drop together, and they’re making sure to keep things fresh with a new style and star-studded campaign. Many of the popular products from previous drops—like the mini logo boots and the shearling shopper bags—have been reimagined in a crinkle patent leather that adds some texture and shine to the well-known styles. Hues like spicy pumpkin—a rich orange—make the products PSL season must-haves, while a campaign shoot starring everyone from Lil’ Kim to Mickey Rourke has our undivided attention. You can shop the latest drop on Ugg.com and Telfar.com.

Harry Lambert x Zara

Harry Lambert—the mind behind some of Harry Styles’s best looks—is ready to take his talents to the world of designing. The celebrity stylist has teamed with Zara to create the “Cutie Chaos” collection, 60 pieces—ranging in prices from $35.90 to $349—inspired by his work and personal style. Knitwear takes center stage with an array of vintage references, oversized silhouettes, and nostalgic color schemes, many dotted with cheeky characters that really bring the idea of Cutie Chaos to life. The sweaters and knit vests are just begging to be worn with the collection’s rich selection of outerwear, including a faux fur-lined duffle coat and an oversize plaid blazer. Complete the look with a violet button-down layered underneath and the addition of one or two accessories from the collection—like a crystal necklace or a snap closure top-handle leather purse. The result will be a nostalgic, inherently British ensemble, perfect for any of your wintertime plans. And while this is a Zara collection, Lambert emphasized sustainability with his designs, using fabrics with recycled raw materials such as wool, nylon, and cotton. It’s a whimsical, bright, yet still cozy collection, comprised of pieces that look like they’ve been in your wardrobe forever—and likely will be. Harry Lambert x Zara will be available from November 13 on Zara.com and in selected stores.

Larroudé x Altuzarra

Longtime friends Marina Larroudé and Joseph Altuzarra have joined forces to create the most perfect classic-yet-sexy slingback pump, just in time for all your holiday dressing needs. Coming in three shades—black patent leather, black leather, and silver specchio—the style is totally unapologetic with its four inch heel and polished finish. It’s just begging for a wear with a little black dress, or to become the added spice to a crisp, tailored suit. Plus, the crafted soles and memory foam mean these shoes are actually comfortable—and walkable—despite the height. That’s an absolute feat in shoemaking. You can shop the collaboration at Larroude.com, Altuzarra.com and exclusively at ModaOperandi.com.

Swarovski x Skims

Skims is entering a sparkling new space—thanks, in part, to Swarovski. The two brands are coming together for a collaboration that combines the extravagance of Swarovski and the effectiveness of Skims in a line of crystal intimates, bodysuits, body jewelry, and dresses. “For this collaboration, we really wanted to celebrate individual creativity and bring more glamour into getting dressed every day,” said Kim Kardashian, co-founder and creative director of Skims, in a statement. By the looks of the collection, it appears she was successful in achieving this goal. Inspired by Swarovski’s Millenia jewelry collection, the pieces are simple, rendered in skin tones and fitted to the body to create an otherworldly, sparkling effect. A Skims jelly sheer bandeau and maxi skirt is dotted with crystals, while a bralette features the more subtle addition of a bedazzled band. The pieces are meant to be worn both underneath and on top of other garments, depending on how much attention you want to attract on any given day. Swarovski x Skims launches on November 7. You can shop the line on Skims.com, as well as in Swarovski locations and other select luxury stores worldwide.

Barrie x Sofia Coppola

Sofia Coppola has always been a world-builder. Over the past few months, the director has released a new movie and a new monographic book. In addition, she’s dipped her toes into the jewelry space—and now, she’s setting her sights on fashion. The director has teamed up with Scottish cashmere brand Barrie for a collection of ready-to-wear pieces and accessories that will allow all to literally wrap themselves up in the director’s chic and elegant style. The color scheme of the collection is simple, with pieces in black, navy, khaki, and a range of grays. The addition of pinks sprinkled throughout add a touch of femininity—especially effective when used on a color-blocked sweater and a lounge set. Looking at the lineup, one can imagine the many uses for the velvet-effect cashmere cardigan, or the striped pullover: to be worn with matching cashmere pants for a day of travel, or dressed up with trousers for meetings at the office. Comfort was obviously important to Coppola and Barrie’s artistic director, Augustin Dol-Maillot, though they didn’t skimp on style in the process. Barrie x Sofia Coppola is now available at Barrie’s boutiques, barrie.com, and select retailers worldwide.

Gucci x Billie Eilish

Billie Eilish has a long history of using her influence to effect sustainable change within large luxury brands. And this time, she has turned her sights on Gucci. The singer worked with what is likely her favorite label to create a new, eco-friendly iteration of their popular Horsebit 1955 bag, this time crafted in Demetra, a durable, high-quality animal-free material. The collaboration is made up of two designs: a sleek black variety and a brown monogrammed version, both featuring a unique, asymmetric structure. The fabric is made from 75 percent plant-derived raw material sources and is the result of two years of research and development led by Gucci technicians and artisans. Unsurprisingly, Gucci tapped Eilish to star in the campaign introducing this new sustainable bag to the world, putting her front and center in images shot by Tyrell Hampton and a video set to the singer’s latest track, “What Was I Made For?” As part of the launch, Gucci has also made a donation to Support+Feed, a nonprofit organization founded by Eilish’s mom, Maggie Baird, which combats climate change and food insecurity by working toward an equitable, plant-based food system.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Timepieces in Homage to Hokusai

With its debut of a pair of limited edition Reverso Tribute wristwatches featuring works by the acclaimed Japanese ukiyo-e artist Hokusai, Jaeger-LeCoultre invites wearers to quite literally transform their look into fine art. Each of the house’s famous dual-faced styles boasts miniature enamel versions of the artist’s wood-block pieces rendered in exquisite detail. On The Waterfall at Ono edition, a group of travelers are depicted near a Shinto shrine on an ancient road. Meanwhile The Waterfall at Yoshino style portrays a chapter from the famous Japanese tale of General Minamoto no Yoshitsune as he is fleeing his older brother and stops to bathe his favorite horse. Both editions serve to honor Hokusai’s singular talent at capturing the power of nature and will be on view at the brand’s Reverso Stories exhibition opening November 3 and running through November 22 in New York.

Khaite x Bonpoint

Khaite fans (who also happen to be moms), rejoice—because now, you can finally dress your little ones in looks fit for the ultimate stealth wealth baby. The New York-based, cult-favorite label is throwing its chic, understated hat in the childrenswear ring, with some help from Bonpoint. Combining the classic French aesthetic of Bonpoint and the down-to-earth ferocity of Khaite, this collaboration will make any wearer the coolest kid on the playground. Comprised of eleven pieces ranging from ages three months to ten years old, the collection features miniaturized versions of Khaite signatures like a fair isle patterned sweater, as well as some childrenswear staples like elastic waist leggings, long-sleeve onesies, and a knit hat. More whimsical, unexpected pieces come in the form of peasant-style blouses, a pleated skirt, and a double-breasted blazer that will turn any child into the ultimate boss baby. The heart of the collaboration is clear in the campaign images, which feature the newborn son of Catherine Holstein, Khaite’s founder and creative director. You can shop Khaite x Bonpoint now at both brands’ retail locations, as well as online at khaite.com and bonpoint.com.

Camille Rowe x Reformation

If you were to ask Chat GPT to create a list of the people who epitomize French style, there’s a very high chance that Camille Rowe would be at the top of its list. This season, the model and actress is lending her sharp eye and enviable je ne sais quoi to Reformation for a collection of cheeky party looks and effortless separates. This isn’t the first time Rowe and Ref have paired up: She was an early fan of the brand’s vintage edit, and they even worked together in 2014 on a ’70s inspired summer capsule. In this new drop, which was inspired by some of those early vintage pieces, there’s something for everyone, from low-rise trousers and crisp button downs you’ll want to wear every day to glittering skirts and dresses hat are perfect for holiday parties ahead. We have our eyes on the silk slips, which feature just enough playful detailing and a flattering bias cut to make your cocktail attire stand out in a crowd.

Intimissimi x Jennifer Lopez

J.Lo has officially dropped “This Is Me...Now.” No, not her forthcoming ninth studio album, but a capsule collection with Italian intimates brand Intimissimi of the same name. Made up of styles in champagne, black, and jade green, the pieces are romantic, thanks to their lace details, with touches of glamour in the form of rhinestone appliqués. The addition of hummingbird charms attached to a few of the pieces was an important inclusion for Lopez, as the bird represents “luck, resilience, and vibrant energy” and just so happens to be the name of a song on her new album. The collection, which ranges in price from $22 for a thong and $269 for a silk robe, is available now on intimissimi.com and in stores worldwide on October 23rd.

Lacoste x le FLEUR*

Four years after the success of their initial collaboration, Tyler, the Creator’s brand, le FLEUR*, is once again partnering with Lacoste for another collection of unisex clothing and accessories. Made up of varsity jackets, pastel sweater vests, polos, and more, the collection plays on heritage sportswear while adding a modern edge. A pink knit polo features elegant gold buttons, while a mid-length pleated skirt begs to be paired with a forest green wool cardigan. The collaboration features the iconography of Lacoste—including their alligator logo—with the influence of Tyler’s preppy-cool personal style. Ribbed socks and pearl jewelry complete the collection, which is now available at Lacoste retail locations worldwide, as well as lefleur.la and lacoste.com.

JW Anderson x A.P.C.

JW Anderson is partnering with French ready-to-wear brand A.P.C. for a collection inspired by I Like America and America Likes Me, a 1974 piece of performance art by Joseph Beuys protesting the Vietnam war. The German artist flew from Dusseldorf to New York for the project, transported in an ambulance to and from the plane, wrapped in a felt blanket before locking himself inside the René Block Gallery for three days with a coyote. A rough wool duffle coat takes inspiration from Beuys’ blanket, while a photo of the ambulance, as well as the gallery’s address at 409 West Broadway, decorates a graphic tee. Made for both men and women, the collection focuses on two silhouettes—one more fitted, represented by black denim, biker jackets, and hand-painted knits, the other is looser, inspired by the hippie aesthetic and characterized with multi-color knitwear and distressed denim. A Cornishware teapot and canvas tote rounf out the collection, which Irish designer Jonathan Anderson created based on his ideal wardrobe. JW Anderson x A.P.C. will be available in stores starting October 12th.

Cybex’s La Parisienne

The baby gear brand Cybex is looking toward the City of Light and its great couturiers like Coco Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, and Christian Dior for their new La Parisienne line of strollers, car seats, and accessories. The collection is characterized by the design featured on each item, inspired by Parisian decor. Hand-cut organza decorates the canopies of the strollers and carriers, surrounded by six different types of hand-placed stones. The motif is featured on four of the brand’s strollers, an infant car seat, and a footmuff lining to keep your baby warm in style. “La Parisienne is an ode to all women in the world,” says Martin Pos, Founder of Cybex. “Its unique and exclusive craftsmanship is to be proudly passed down as a family jewel, from mother to daughter. The most important treasure for those who value class, chic and couture.” La Parisienne is available now at Bloomingdales.com.

Kenzo x Levi’s

For his first collaboration at the helm of Kenzo, Nigo chose the legacy denim brand Levi’s for a capsule collection celebrating both historical Japanese dressmaking and class American workwear. Consisting of over twenty garments and accessories rendered in Kaihara Japanese denim, the collection reflects Nigo’s passion for jeans, Levi’s long history as the leader of its category, and the functionality of the Kenzo brand. A denim blazer harkens back to Bing Crosby’s famed Levi’s tuxedo, with a denim tie available to complete the look. Fringe evokes the cowboy aesthetic integral to Levi’s history, while floral motifs call to Kenzo house codes. Color comes only in the form of red, through bandannas, t-shirts, and a satin jacket. There’s something for the denim lover, the Western-enthusiast, and the minimalist dresser in this capsule. The collection is now available on Kenzo.com and Levi.com, as well as in select Kenzo and Levi’s stores.

Iris van Herpen x Aveda

Fans of Iris van Herpen—especially those who can only dream of getting their hands on one of her bespoke gowns—rejoice! The Dutch couturier is lending her surrealist, innovative vision to a set of hair accessories for the holiday season. In partnership with the O.G. clean haircare brand Aveda, van Herpen has designed a hair cuff and a set of hairpins with intricate, organic patterns rendered in gleaming gold-toned metal—ideal ways to add a bit of intrigue to a freshly cut bob or a sleek updo. Also in the mix of this collaboration: a van Herpen-designed cosmetic case and gift boxes featuring fan favorite products from the Botanical Repair and Nutriplenish lines. With only a limited run available, now’s the time to snap up the perfect holiday gift for the avant garde fashion lover in your life.

Rimowa x Tiffany & Co.

No longer will you fret over how to travel with all your jewels in hand—Rimowa’s latest collaboration has the perfect solution. The luxury luggage brand has partnered with Tiffany & Co. on a capsule of carriers inspired by diamonds—and made to carry them. The collection is comprised of three pieces, including a jewelry case, jewelry personal, and a carry-on suitcase. The suitcase and jewelry case are rendered in a hard-shell, brushed aluminum with a beveled surface, made to look like the ridges of a diamond (and fittingly called “rock cut”). Look closely and you can also find a “T” motif throughout the pieces, as well as Tiffany blue accents, acting as more nods to the jeweler. The personal, meanwhile, is the smallest piece in the collection, but eye-catching on its own thanks to its bright Tiffany blue hue. Ranging in price from $3,020 for the personal to $6,550 for the jewelry case, the collection will be available in Rimowa and Tiffany stores, as well as online at rimowa.com and tiffany.com, on September 26.

Tiffany & Co.’s Rosé Edition

Tiffany & Co. ambassador and K-pop icon Rosé was the inspiration for the jewelry brand’s latest capsule collection, the Rosé edition. Unsurprisingly, the designs pay homage to the singer’s name, sporting 18 karat rose gold, as well as pink sapphires. The gem of choice is one of the rarest within the sapphire family, and was chosen to symbolize love and power. The collection boasts four different styles, including the classic lock bracelet, a pair of earrings, and both a small and medium pendant necklace. “It is such an honor to inspire a capsule collection for Tiffany,” Rosé said in a statement. “It’s exciting to see the iconic Lock collection reimagined with such rare gemstones and I’m excited to share this fun project with my fans and also fans of the Lock collection.” The collection is currently available in China, Korea, and The Landmark in New York City and will be offered worldwide on October 1.

Port Tanger Visited by Ice Studios

Photographer and W contributor Renell Medrano is lending her eye to different kind of lens this season. Through her creative outlet Ice Studios, she’s teamed up with the craft optical brand Port Tanger to design a duo of genderless sunglasses inspired by her New York upbringing and Dominican heritage: the Nunny, a Y2K-inspired wraparound frame; and the Mektoub, a very of-the-moment rectangular look. Both glasses come in an array of wear-all-day-and-night hues, from ice blue to creamy amber—providing just the right amount of shade without dimming your glow. “When someone wears my frames, I want them to feel strong, confident and seen,” Medrano says.

Jean Paul Gaultier x KNWLS

The iconic French fashion house Jean Paul Gaultier is teaming up with the Kylie Jenner and Dua Lipa-endorsed KNWLS for a collaboration that exemplifies the edgy aesthetic integral to the two brands’s DNAs. Pulling from the archives of both houses, the collection features signatures like JPG’s popular trompe-l’œil design, this time rendered in a heavy metal-inspired tattoo print straight from Gaultier’s spring/summer 1994 collection. KNWLS’s modern steampunk look is also at play, in the form of distressed leather bustiers and lace-up dresses that implement JPG’s knack for corsetry. Of course, Gaultier’s conical bra is also referenced, though it’s a more subtle take—maybe not wild enough for Madonna, but perfect for a night out downtown. Sheer sets, colorful knits, and unique suiting complete the collection, which proves the real synergy between these two brands. The combination of the aesthetics is effortless, yet the influence each house brings to the project remains clear. You can shop the 46-piece collection, which ranges in price from €270 to €2700 on jeanpaulgaultier.com now.

Ben-Amun’s New Delilah Collection

New York City-based jewelry brand Ben-Amun’s latest collection—a series of delicate yet intricately designed earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and brooches—pays homage to the grit and grace of women. By mixing steely, silver-toned metal and delicate, freshwater pearls, designer Isaac Manevitz was able to present two sides of the female coin: the juxtaposition of soft and giving, yet firm and steadfast. (It’s a concept anyone who identifies as a woman can understand, and no doubt has experienced many times over.) The inspiration behind the array of chandelier earrings, statement chokers, and one particularly chic brooch with a chain of pearls? Cut-steel jewelry from the 18th and 19th century made from horse shoe nails that was originally created to mimic the shine of natural crystals. To shop the collection, now available, click here.

Louis Vuitton’s GO-14

One of creative director Nicolas Ghesquière’s very first handbag styles is being plucked from the Louis Vuitton archives and reintroduced as the GO-14. The purse—which first appeared on Ghesquière’s inaugural LV runway show in October 2014—features a malletage thatched face and chain strap with a ladylike top handle. The malletage style is a nod to Louis Vuitton’s heritage trunkmaking: the very first Vuitton trunks featured this crisscrossing pattern in the lining. The GO-14 (Ghesquière October ‘14—get it?) re-release has already been seen on the likes of Cate Blanchett, Jung Ho-yeon, NewJeans star Hyein, and the actress Sheila Atim in a range of styles and colorways—including a micro-size in black and white and a trompe l’oeil sable brown. For more information, visit louisvuitton.com.

Ralph Lauren’s RL 888 Bag

Ralph Lauren is combining the two worlds it knows best for the launch of a brand-new handbag, the RL 888. Modern and sleek luxury meets a rough and weathered landscape in a set of images starring Anna Ewers and Fei Fei Sun. The real star, however, is the bag itself, a classic design featuring a crossbody, top handle, and mini crossbody chain. Inspired by the architecture of New York City, the bag features rounded edges sculpted in box calf leather and finished off with the Ralph Lauren RL logo in palladium, brass or Champagne. In the campaign film, shot by cinematographer Robert Elswit, Ewers and Sun show off the timeless piece amid a rustic landscape of fields, fences, and farmsteads. The contrast between the RL 888 and Ewers’s distressed jeans and tank top show the versatility of the new accessory. In celebration of the launch, Ralph Lauren is also debuting The 888 House, a brand-themed mansion created using Computer Generated Imagery (CGI) technology, a chance to immerse oneself in the world of Ralph Lauren from the comfort of your home. Shop the bag and experience The 888 House online.

Willy Chavarria x Dickies

Will Kahn and Jenna Grosfeld Team for The Vintage Notebook

Jenna Grosfeld—the designer behind Jenna Blake jewelry and a longtime vintage jewelry collector—has joined forces with Will Kahn, the veteran jewelry editor and expert, to create The Vintage Notebook, a digital platform that takes the mystery out of shopping for vintage jewels. It seems like everyone wants to buy vintage these days, but the intimidation factor can be off-putting for many would-be shoppers. “There is so much great jewelry out there, but the average shopper doesn’t know where to start and doesn’t want to dig,” Khan explained in a press release. “Jenna and I have hand-selected and curated pieces that we would tell our friends to buy.” The duo’s light, educational, and Millennial-friendly approach is integral to the endeavor, which launched earlier this summer. Vintage must-haves are broken into monthly “drops” and each trickle of new product is accompanied by styling tips and jewelry history. “We want to bridge a generation gap, so that the most amazing periods in jewelry design don’t become lost arts of bygone eras,” Blake said. For the latest drop and more information, shoppers can check out shopthevintagenotebook.com.

Return to Tiffany x Beyoncé Collection

Don’t call it merch.

Tiffany & Co. has taken its iconic “Return to Tiffany” design—an early aughts favorite immortalized in films like Legally Blonde and seen dangling from the wrists of Y2K stars like Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie—and infused it with the tour of the moment: Beyoncé’s Renaissance. The new “Return to Tiffany” collection features remixed engraving that reads “Welcome to the Renaissance” with an etched horse image—a nod to the imagery associated with Bey’s Renaissance era. The limited-edition collection officially launches on July 29, coinciding with Beyoncé’s Renaissance world tour performance in East Rutherford, New Jersey. All of the profits from sales of this collaboration will benefit the About Love scholarship program, which is an ongoing partnership between Tiffany & Co., Beyoncé’s charity BeyGood, and Jay Z’s The Shawn Carter Foundation. According to Tiffany, “the proceeds will expand upon the $2 million pledged in 2021 for scholarship funding for students in the arts and creative fields at five historically Black colleges and universities: Lincoln University in Pennsylvania, Norfolk State University in Virginia, Bennett College in North Carolina, University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff and Central State University in Ohio.” Beyoncé has been wearing tons of Tiffany & Co. jewelry onstage for Renaissance, as the brand is the official jeweler for the tour. Now, you can take a piece of it home with you.

The Surf Lodge Spotlights Diverse Jewelry Designers With De Beers Group

Those who have experienced summer in the Hamptons are likely quite familiar with The Surf Lodge. The Montauk institution just celebrated its 15th anniversary out east—and to honor the occasion, its founder and creative director, Jayma Cardoso, turned to an institution of the jewelry world, the De Beers Group. With the support of De Beers, Cardoso has curated a special selection of jewelry in her hotel’s on-site boutique; featured designers include Harwell Godfrey, Lorraine West, Maggi Simpkins, MATEO, Ten Thousand Things, and WWAKE. “Since its inception, Jayma Cardoso has put an enormous emphasis on using The Surf Lodge as a canvas to champion the work of diverse creatives from musicians to artists to chefs,” De Beers said in a press release. “This summer, she reached out to offer her platform for jewelry designers, so this was a great fit.” The selection caters to the laissez-faire lifestyle of Montauk’s beach community—with a wide range of wearable pieces that will be available for purchase from now until Labor Day.

MCM x Crocs

Crocs is once again getting the high fashion treatment, this time with some help from MCM. Named the MCM X Crocs Mega Crush Clog, the collaboration pairs MCM’s inconspicuous aesthetic with the classic Crocs look to create a pair of shoes that are both comfy and flashy. The campaign, starring Lindsay Lohan, was shot on a Dubai skyscraper and depicts a surreal world that mixes the virtual with the reality. Lohan poses alongside some classic MCM trunks while showing off the two Croc color ways. A white and silver pair allows for a slightly more subtle look, while the black and gold ensures the shoes will not be missed. Plus both styles come with an abundance of Jibbitz charms inspired by the MCM house codes, as well as a mini belt bag that can be worn on the top of the shoe, or as its own accessory. “The shoe combines style, versatility, and comfort—all important to me when choosing the perfect fashion accessory,” Lohan said in a statement. “It was an extra special touch to shoot here in Dubai, the place that I call home.” To shop the collaboration, visit mcmworldwide.com.

Blumarine by Marc Jacobs

Blumarine has linked up with Marc Jacobs’s Heaven line for a Y2K-focused capsule collection that’s one part Mean Girls, one part Bratz Dolls. The capsule, consisting of 11 pieces and available for purchase on July 7, features pink camo-print miniskirts, jeans with chain belts, cropped denim jackets, and baby tees that scream “aughts.” For its campaign, Blumarine and Marc Jacobs Heaven enlisted photographer Petra Collins and stylist Lotta Volkova to shoot and dress a cast of models inside a typical American high school. Amid rows of lockers, they clutch their tiny pink purses decorated with bedazzled “B” accents close to them; in the gym, they hold onto silvery pom-poms. “I remember lusting after Blumarine advertisements,” Ava Nirui, the creative director for Heaven by Marc Jacobs, said in a statement. “There was something very powerful about the way the brand depicted women, and I felt instantly moved by these images.” To shop the collaboration, visit marcjacobs.com.

Heading to the Hamptons this summer? Make sure to get a tune-up at The Summer Body Shop, the immersive pop-up by luxury e-commerce platform Mytheresa and Flamingo Estate, the lifestyle brand and Southern California farm. What was once an abandoned auto body shop in East Hampton has been transformed into a monochromatic dreamworld—one fit for a mechanic straight out of Greta Gerwig’s Barbie. There, you’ll find color-coordinated assortments of summer essentials from Loewe, Valentino, Versace, and more high-fashion brands placed neatly alongside stacks of Fanelli tires, exhaust pipes, and seafoam green wrenches. (All the ephemera encircles a matching Kelly green Porsche. Chic.)

The space will host a range of events open to the public, kicking things off with a launch event on June 28 attended by Martha Stewart, Bobbi Brown, Candace Bushnell, Hannah Bronfman, and many more of Long Island’s finest.

Fendi’s Astrology Capsule Collection

For its latest summer capsule, Fendi dove deep into the house archives for inspiration—notably, three seasons in particular: spring/summer 1990, 1992, and 1993. Combing through illustrations of scarves, bathing suits, t-shirts and t-shirt dresses penned by Karl Lagerfeld himself that bore star signs in both English and Italian, the Roman label has updated its zodiac theme for today. Enter: the astrology summer capsule, which features swim and beachwear rtw, accessories (including a reimagined design for the iconic Baguette bag), and trinkets like charming miniature Fendi purses shrunken into keychains. The color palette of whites, pinks, and blues for this capsule mirrors that of Fendi’s most recent ready-to-wear offering; and the silken pajama sets, bombers, and scarves in the summer capsule are printed with each zodiac sign in Lagerfeld’s original handwriting. See below for a peek at the collection, and shop the looks on fendi.com.

Tiffany & Co. Blue Book 2023: Out of the Blue

On June 6th in NYC, Tiffany & Co. unveiled its newest high jewelry collection atop the jeweler’s recently renovated, palatial landmark store on Fifth Avenue. The collection marks the first outing for Nathalie Verdeille, Tiffany’s Chief Artistic Office of Jewelry and High Jewelry and is a celebration of Jean Schlumberger and his obsession with the fantastical creatures of the sea. Shells, coral, jellyfish, and star urchins are present among the designs. A pendant with a detachable diamond brooch in the shape of a conch shell that opens to reveal a 21 carat black opal was a standout of the day. So was a luminescent jellyfish brooch.

Star urchin pieces embody the drama of the ocean, with tanzanites and hand-carved chalcedony that emulate a sea urchin’s spiky exterior. Also on view were new twists on Schlumberger classics, including whimsical bracelets and necklaces inspired by the fan-favorite Bird on a Rock brooch. “In Jean Schlumberger’s imagination and design philosophy, the sea represented an unknown, infinite world. He choreographed unparalleled manifestations of its majesty and mystery,” said Verdeille in a press release. “My first Blue Book collection for the House is a deep dive into aquatic life that both honors and reimagines Schlumberger’s vision.”

The LV Trunk Travels to Web 3

Louis Vuitton’s leather hard case trunks—a signature accessory for the French house and the only way to travel for most well-heeled globetrotters—are taking on a form never before seen in LV’s nearly 170-year history. For the first time ever, Louis Vuitton will offer the IVA Treasure Trunk, a digital imagination of the original trunk that will be available to purchase within Web 3. The brand describes the product offered within this new initiative as “created in very limited quantity,” with each purchase of a digital trunk coinciding with a matching physical trunk.

Through VIA Trunk, shoppers have access to Louis Vuitton’s latest launches, limited products, and experiences, along with immersive drops; think of it as a digital collectible meeting a VIP newsletter. As an added bonus, owners of the Treasure Trunk can use their digital keys to purchase and unlock new and unseen collectibles from the maison. The VIA Treasure Trunk will be available via the Louis Vuitton website beginning June 8, for collectors based in the United States, Canada, France, the United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, and Australia.

Bottega Veneta Toasts a Decade in Brazil

Bottega Veneta has set up shop inside a little slice of heaven with its latest artistic program. As part of the brand’s cultural exchange series The Square, BV has created an exhibition inside Lina Bo Bardi’s Casa de Vidro (Glass House) in São Paulo—a landmark structure of Brazilian modernism. The home, nestled amid palm trees and tropical fronds, is filled with works by a number of Brazilian artists like Vivian Caccuri, Luiz Zerbini, and Rosana Paulino—and, of course, pieces by Bo Bardi herself, along with her writings and original furnishings. Together with curator Mari Stockler, creative director Matthieu Blazy culled the list of guest artists who would pay homage to Bo Bardi, a Rome native who moved to Brazil in 1946 and became a central figure of the modern art movement in the South American country. “Casa de Vidro is one of my favorite places,” Blazy says. “It’s a real inspiration to meet here with artists from across generations, across disciplines, and across Brazil.” Catch the installation, which doubles as a celebration for the Italian label’s 10 years in Brazil, through June 3.

Cartier Launches New Grain de Café Jewelry

Cartier’s glamorous Grain de Café collection, inspired by the style of 1950s French Riviera and worn by the likes of Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn, is back and better than ever. The house launched Grain de Café, which looks like its namesake, a coffee bean, in 1938. The collection quickly became a hit and was especially popular in the 1950s and 60s. This year Cartier is reissuing and reinterpreting a number of the collection’s most iconic pieces, including rings and bracelets studded with rubellite beads and diamonds, and a necklace originally created in 1955. “Grain de Café creates a new preciousness by playing with light, finishes and volumes. The result is a versatile collection with added spirit. A symbol of the creative freedom of the Maison, Grain de Café transcends a literal translation of nature and results in a multi-sensory design,” Marie-Laure Cérède, the house’s Creative Director of Jewellery and Watchmaking explained in a press release. Elle Fanning, Cartier’s newest brand ambassador, plays the part of a young Grace Kelly in the campaign imagery.

Louis Vuitton’s First Hamptons Location

It’s hard to believe that Louis Vuitton hasn’t ever opened a boutique in ritzy East Hampton, New York. But during Memorial Day Weekend, the French fashion house did just that for the very first time, cutting the proverbial ribbon on its debut location out East. Inspired by the seaside vibes and located on East Hampton’s historic main street, the shop comes with a beachy, minimal, and clean aesthetic—think lots of light, high ceilings, and glass encasements surrounded by Monstera plants. Shoppable offerings include both seasonal collections and signature Louis Vuitton pieces that reflect the elegance of the Hamptons, like a new, limited-edition Neverfull bag and a Pareo stole and fan bearing LV’s signature monogram and special “Hamptons” text made exclusively for this store location. The LV by the Pool collection is also a highlight, with its clean blue-and-white palette across ready-to wear, handbags, accessories, and décor. For more, visit louisvuitton.com.

The Dioriviera Pop-up at the Beverly Hills Hotel

What does the area code 90210 have in common with the Côte d’Azur? Aside from a wealth of chicness and a Mediterranean climate, we’d wager not much. But now, Christian Dior is bridging the gap between these two uber-alluring locations, with its brand-new pop-up at the Beverly Hills Hotel called Le Jardin des Rêves (or the “garden of dreams”). The Dioriviera boutique, which has taken up its post at the hotel’s famed pool, features a pop-up spa, with skincare and wellness treatments like massages and facials available for hotel guests. But there’s also a shop along the row of cabanas, which is currently selling beach-ready rtw and accessories (we’re big fans of the woven visors and classic saddle bags on offer). Poolside, the Beverly Hills Hotel’s signature pink cabanas have been taken over by Dior’s toile de jouy pattern, which creative director for womenswear Maria Grazia Chiuri reinterpreted precisely for this occasion. The result is a peaceful, rattan-filled getaway in the heart of Los Angeles—with a bit of a shopping, as a treat.

Chanel’s Ephemeral Boutique Out East

Chanel’s roots may be strictly Parisian, but this summer, the maison is returning to its Ephemeral Boutique space on Long Island. Beginning May 25, Chanel will decamp for East Hampton just in time for Memorial Day Weekend. Inside the gray-shingled home typical of this region of New York State, you’ll find Chanel’s annual shop, which this year is focusing on key pieces from both Virginie Viard’s spring 2023 line and the Coco Beach Collection. We’re especially fans of the fun terry-cloth visor from the latter capsule, as well as a perfectly chic velvet bag that would work perfectly at the beach, and a straw bucket hat dotted with pearls. And we could see the below look—a pale pink, checkered bodysuit that debuted on the Chanel runway in October 2022—fitting in perfectly for lunch at Duryea’s, or even a quick run to Citarella. The Chanel Hamptons Ephemeral Boutique is located at 28 Newtown Lane in East Hampton, New York. For more, visit chanel.com

Gucci Vault’s High Summer Collection

The latest drop from Gucci Vault, the Italian house’s experimental concept shop that features a rotating selection of exclusive wares, is particularly strong and fabulously eclectic. Available now are vibrant capsules from eight brands: the Colombian resortwear favorite Agua by Agua Bendita, rising Brooklyn designer Connor McKnight, Parisian menswear label Husbands, bejeweled purse maker Judith Leiber Couture, milliner Maison Michel, New York-based jewelry designer Prounis, the subversive prepsters at Rowing Blazers, and Vans, sneaker extraordinaires. Highlights from the summer release include Prounis’s Grand Tour-inspired 22-karat gold pieces set with pearls, lapis lazuli and garnets; classic Vans Old Skools with rainbow beading and laces (perhaps not coincidentally a very strong Pride Month look); and Agua Bendita’s perfect flowy dresses, embroidered by hand with an array of native Italian and Colombian flora. And if you’re in need of a festive clutch for summer weddings and cocktail parties, Lieber’s “Chocolate Covered Cherries” lunchbox bag is a very worthy candidate.

Emily P. Wheeler x Super Smalls

Fine jeweler Emily P. Wheeler is releasing a collaboration with Super Smalls, the adorable kid’s jewelry line that’s also beloved by adults. The capsule collection, which includes fine jewelry versions of Super Smalls hits like the Unicorn Pendant and Clover Necklace, is a cheeky way for moms to match with their mini-mes—albeit in 18-karat gold and gemstones. The collaboration was born, like so many these days, on Instagram, after Wheeler reached out to Super Smalls founder and avid fine jewelry collector, Maria Dueñas Jacobs, via DM. “Super Smalls was created to give kids the freedom to play with jewelry that’s ‘just like mommy’s,’ and now we’ve come full circle with jewels—which have long been coveted by moms—made just for them,” Dueñas said. The limited-edition collection is now available at emilypwheeler.com, and makes a wonderful gift for mother and child.

Chanel Opens in Beverly Hills

In terms of fashion, the month of May belongs to Chanel this year. On May 4, fresh off dominating the red carpet at the Met Gala held in honor of Karl Lagerfeld, and just days before its set to present Virginie Viard’s latest cruise collection in Los Angeles on May 9, the French luxury house unveiled its massive new boutique at 400 North Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. The staggering 30,000-square-foot, four-story flagship designed by Peter Marino is the maison’s largest U.S. store to date and houses every category from fragrance and beauty to watches and fine jewelry and, of course, the most covetable bags to be found under the California sun. As is the case with every Chanel location, the newest addition is filled with world-class art with the pièce de résistance being the “Gold Lasso,” a commissioned sculpture by French artist Jean-Michel Othoniel that presides over the space from the ceiling to the first floor and calls to mind Coco Chanel’s famous pearl strands. Items exclusive to the location include a special “Beverly Hills” Haute Joaillerie capsule collection, Chanel Le Vernis nail polishes in “Fast Car” and “Denim” hues, and playful unisex butterfly-shaped sunglasses ideal for channeling your inner celebrity.

Jennie for Calvin Klein

Global superstar and Blackpink frontwoman Jennie Kim is no longer just a face for Calvin Klein—she’s a bonafide design collaborator. On May 4, the American label unveiled Jennie for Calvin Klein, a limited-edition capsule collection designed in tandem with the artist and CK brand ambassador. According to Calvin Klein, the capsule “takes cues from Jennie’s casual wardrobe essentials”—think: denim, everyday t-shirts, fleeces and knits, and underwear sets (this is Calvin, of course). The collection comes in a range of pastel colors; the palette, chosen and curated specifically by Jennie. As an added bonus and personal touch for Jennie’s rabid fan base, some garments bear the classic Calvin Klein logo, reimagined in the musician’s own handwriting. Think of it as a fashionable autograph.

The collection will be available in select Calvin Klein stores and on calvinklein.com globally beginning May 10. Prices range from $25 to $150. Get a sneak peek at the capsule, below.

Saint Laurent’s Foray Into Fine Jewelry

Saint Laurent is getting into the high jewelry category. For the first time in the house’s history, a line of necklaces, rings, earrings, and cuffs called Saint Laurent Haute Joaillerie is now available for purchase. Diamonds cast in yellow or white gold harken back to Saint Laurent’s key codes (and, we might add, pair beautifully with the 1980s-inspired, bold-shouldered jackets creative director Anthony Vaccarello debuted at his fall 2023 runway show during Paris Fashion Week this year). A selection of rings and necklaces bear the iconic YSL logo, while thick, chunky, golden bracelets nod to the Maillon chain link. Saint Laurent is, of course, known for its accessories—but you’ve never seen wearable art like this before. Below, some looks from the campaign, shot by Juergen Teller.

Louis Vuitton’s Crafting Dreams Exhibition

Louis Vuitton has taken some of its most extraordinary offerings and created a venerable art exhibition with them. For Crafting Dreams, described by the brand as a “savoir-faire experience in Los Angeles,” the maison rounded up items like fine jewelry and watches, an Infinity Party Trunk replete with a Champagne service inside, and even an LV vanity mahjong set, and staged them in a private mansion, transforming the home into something of an interactive gallery. There’s the Red Carpet Room, filled with gowns worn on the red carpet by Ana de Armas, Phoebe Dynevor, Gemma Chan, and more; along with a space dedicated to ultra-rare hardsided trunks, some dotted with Yayoi Kusama’s signature painted spots. In fact, the Los Angeles activation is a bit of a dream for LV trunk enthusiasts: this will be an exclusive opportunity to preview the Cabinet of Curiosities by Marc Newson, which is slated to make its official debut at Milan Design Week. On view until May 3, Crafting Dreams is available by private appointment only. Catch a sneak peek, here.

Givenchy Plage Collection

Givenchy is bringing a dose of chic to the beach. Inspired by the colors and lifestyle associated with Le Clos Fiorentina, founder Hubert de Givenchy’s seaside estate in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat on the French Rivieria, the Plage Collection features bathing suits, cover-ups, sets, and caftans ripe for the pre-fall 2023 season. According to the French house, the Plage Collection aims to foster a “city-to-sand” sensibility—meaning the knit bikinis, crocheted two-pieces, terry ponchos, and a range of accessories can be worn on the beach or streetside. Sneakers, totes with the Givenchy logo, and even a number of jewelry pieces round out the capsule, which will arrive in Givenchy stores and online in mid-April, with a full rollout through mid-May. Personally, we’re huge fans of the raffia tote bags. See more on givenchy.com.

Sandy Liang x Salomon

Sandy Liang and Salomon working together on a new sneaker feels like an incredibly logical collaboration. Both labels are beloved by the downtown set, with hordes of Dimes Square inhabitants frequently matching the footwear brand’s latest drop with the designer’s newest wares. Plus, Liang is a noted Salomon fan—she’s featured the sneakers exclusively on models at her past runway shows during New York Fashion Week. Now, the two have officially linked up on two Salomon styles reimagined by Liang: a pale pink and green lace-up sneaker, and a pair of gray slip-ons that sort of resemble water shoes, decorated with the signature Sandy Liang daisy detail. The capsule will launch April 28 on sandyliang.info and will be available at the label’s New York City boutique. Then, they’ll be for sale globally on May 5, available for purchase on salomon.com and select retailers for $190 a pair. Grab a sneak peek below.

Zara Home + by Vincent Van Duysen

For his second collection with Zara Home, the Belgian architect and interior designer Vincent Van Duysen turned his minimal, chic lens upon the dining room. In Collection 02 for the fast-fashion label’s Home line, Van Duysen—who has designed spaces inside Kim Kardashian’s home, for Loro Piano’s headquarters in Milan, and much more—created pieces using select woods with fine textures, along with a range of stone materials bearing flawless finishes. An extension of Collection 01, which centered living room furniture, this upcoming drop maintains Van Duysen’s signature simplistic and comfortable approach to form. According to a statement from Zara, “dining room pieces can be easily interchanged and swapped with their living room counterparts.” The collection will be available beginning June 2 on zarahome.com and in select stores—check out an advanced looks at the offerings, here.

Coachtopia

Coach has got Earth Day top of mind with its newest subbrand, Coachtopia. The initiative expands upon Coach’s existing sustainability efforts, including the (Re) Loved program, which allows shoppers to trade in their vintage Coach wears to be reimagined and recycled by the label’s in-house design team. Coachtopia takes things a step further, reworking what a product’s lifecycle looks like “from end to beginning—reducing the creation of new materials by crafting with waste and designing products that can be remade and recycled to live multiple lives,” a statement from the brand reads. In addition, Coach will be collaborating with Gen Z designers, artists, students, and activists on capsule collections and one-offs. See looks from the campaign, shot by Remi Ferrante, here.

Presley Oldham Collaborates on an Upcycled Collection with TheRealReal

Jewelry designer Presley Oldham, who is known for genderless and bespoke pieces worn by trendsetters from Kendrick Lamar to Chloë Sevigny, has collaborated with luxury resale destination TheRealReal on a limited-edition, upcycled jewelry collection. The 35-piece collection is comprised of gemstones and materials no longer available on The RealReal, including agate, topaz, peridot, rose quartz, and Oldham’s signature, pearls. Oldham spent several months reworking and recycling these materials—which were often loose beads and broken strands—into wearable art. A launch party for the collection took place last Wednesday at Jac’s On Bond. Oldham, an excellent model for his own work, held court in a deep V-neck blouse that perfectly displayed one of his draping pearl pieces. In a press release, he elaborated on his genderless design philosophy, saying, “I personally don’t think it’s beneficial to gender jewelry or clothing. If you like it and want to wear it, why shouldn’t you? We all have bodies worthy of decoration. Jewelry should be fun, and make you feel more like yourself no matter how you identify.” The collaboration, which ranges in price from $185-$875, will be available on TheRealReal.com in April.

Reformation Launches Handbags

The brand beloved for its slinky cocktail dresses and sexy linen separates is entering the handbag arena with a splash. Three covetable styles—a convertible top handle purse dubbed the Chiara, an unstructured tote with a sweet bow called the Vittoria, and a croissant-shaped, tuck-under-the-arm number named Rosetta—will be available on April 24th. The campaign, starring Camilla Morrone, and waitlists for each style are both live now. True to Reformation’s sustainable spirit, every piece is made from fully traceable, genuine cow leather with minimal hardware, making them not only durable and timeless, but more easily recyclable through the brand’s recycling program. And with hues that range from heather (a bubblegum pink) to parmesan (a pale cream), there’s sure to be a style for everyone to love.

Maje x Éliou Capsule

Do clothing brand Maje and jewelry label Éliou control the weather? Maybe not—but the two companies have made a capsule collection of cheery, colorful RTW and accessories just in time for unseasonably hot weather on the East Coast, heralding the shift into late spring during mid April. From their “Tropical Purple” capsule, fans of the summery brands can purchase swimsuits, necklaces, and earrings—the latter made from natural shells and colorful freshwater pearl beads—to go along with paisley dresses, comfy shorts, and boho tunics that are also part of the collection. This is the perfect moment for Maje and Éliou to link up, especially since festival season is officially upon us. Shop the range, here.

Sky High Farm Workwear @ Nordstrom

After numerous collaborations with the likes of Dover Street Market and a slew of streetwear brands, Dan Colen and Daphne Seybold’s Sky High Farm Workwear brand is coming to Nordstrom’s New York City flagship. The fashion brand—which supports the nonprofit Sky High Farm, an organization that works to ensure food security for those who need it—will be selling its wares at a pop-up inside Nordstrom’s 57th Street location in Manhattan. From April 13 to May 7, The Sky High Farm Workwear@Nordstrom pop-up will feature Sky High’s collaborations with Quil Lemons (one of W’s favorite collaborators, we might add), Converse, and more. Additionally, an exclusive range of redone vintage pieces crafted by Sky High Farm Workwear’s team in New York’s Hudson Valley will be on offer. You can shop the garments in person or on nordstrom.com; we’re especially fans of the denim matching sets, knitwear, and work boots fit for farmland—or the city streets.

Gucci Salon on Melrose Avenue

The appointment-only atelier may seem like a relic of fashion’s glory days, but Gucci is giving the concept a jolt of relevancy. The Italian house is reviving the private, client-focused shopping rendezvous with Gucci Salon, a new kind of alternative to the typical designer boutique experience. Gucci describes its Salon as “a personal universe, offering intimacy and discretion, for clientele invited by appointment.” This is the very first stand-alone Gucci Salon, located on West Hollywood’s storied Melrose Avenue—and will be the home of the label’s High-End assortment. High-End—which offers to Gucci’s most choosy clients a selection of precious leather styles, high jewelry, decor, and travel items, along with RTW and accessories—will be available at other Gucci Salon locations that will roll out globally in the near future. For now, the debut Los Angeles location revels in Hollywood history: the Salon is outfitted with crystal chandeliers, mirrored windows, and jewel-tone curtains along with familiar gowns worn by the likes of Dakota Johnson, Jodie Turner-Smith and Jessica Chastain. Meanwhile, each of the fitting rooms calls to a particular scenography from various movie sets. For more, visit gucci.com.

“Burberry,” the Book

Cloth-bound and covered in the English heritage brand’s signature check pattern, Burberry’s new coffee table book, titled “Burberry,” has arrived. The nearly 250-page tome published by Assouline pays tribute to the label’s 167 years in business—a period Burberry has spent defining what it means to be British and fashionable. Intermixed with photographs from the runway are stories on the evolution of the trench coat, along with over 200 illustrations from the Burberry archive and beyond. Plus, there are images of a more intimate nature, like the one of Adwoa Aboah and her family in Ghana (which happens to be the brand’s fall 2018 pre-collection campaign)—a reminder that, at its core, Burberry is a company of kin. You can purchase the book, written by fashion journalist, author, and critic Alexander Fury and with a foreword by Burberry brand curator Carly Eck, here. In the meantime, peruse a few of the photographs featured in the book below.

Mejuri x Luar

Luar is making its foray into the jewelry category. The beloved New York City brand—which created an affordable “It” bag whose popularity spread like wildfire and closed New York Fashion Week for the spring 2023 season—has collaborated with Mejuri on a capsule of dainty, golden baubles. Double-hoop Convertible Link earrings come in a yellow gold colorway or white; the “Ana” hoop charm (our personal favorite from the collection) is a bit of flair that can be added to earrings you already own. And, of course, Luar’s “Ana” bag hasn’t been left out of the equation: the white leather bag comes with a golden chain that can be used as a strap. See and shop the full capsule, here.

Celine Summer 2023 Tennis Capsule Collection

No one could accuse Celine—the Hedi Slimane label known for its cutting-edge, avant-garde approach to rock and roll fashion—of being preppy in the slightest. But the French house is shifting its perspective in a new capsule that takes its signature fashion from the stage to the grassy tennis court. For summer 2023, Celine has created a tennis-centric capsule collection featuring new accessories and garments that will instantly become a hit at any country club. Tennis bags, logo racquets, full sets (replete with visors), and sneakers are available for purchase in stores or on Celine’s website. (We’re particular fans of the crossbody bag shown below—done in a gorgeous cream-and-tan leather with light-green accents.)

Platform x Rose Wylie

The digital art marketplace Platform is dipping its toes into the fashion game. Next week, Platform will release a limited edition hoodie featuring a screen print of Black Cat (Bones) (Study), 2020 by the British painter Rose Wylie. At 88 years old, Wylie may seem like an unlikely streetwear progenitor, but she sees the collaboration as part of an eclectic pantheon of creativity: “I've always liked applied arts: designs on historic plates, ancient maps, the Bayeux Tapestry, the Book of Hours, the Cluny Tapestries,” she says. “And an anatomy chart comes into that group.” The $200 hoodie, available in sizes S to XL, officially goes on sale on April 4th at 8 A.M., but Platform subscribers can get early access — a smart move, since only 150 pieces were produced. (But if you miss out on the drop, Platform has partnered with The RealReal to ensure each item has a circular life cycle.)

Dover Street Market x Nick Cave

The musician Nick Cave’s shop Cave Things—a cheeky offering of clothing, home goods, jewelry, stationary, and other ephemera bearing the lyrics to the English artist’s songs—has arrived at Dover Street Market. The Cave Things installation and pop-up features apparel, books, homeware, prints and limited-edition recordings, as well as new Cave Things products exclusive to Dover Street Market and some previously sold out items from the Cave Things archive. “I have wanted to make a real-life shop since Cave Things was born as a website in 2020, and nowhere could be better than DSM to host this curious little installation, which I have designed and curated with a bit of help from my wife, Susie,” Cave said of the project. Shop all of the offerings in-store or online—we’re particular fans of the t-shirt that reads “This morning is amazing and so are you” and a hoodie whose credo resonates: “head high & fuck ‘em all.”

Khaite Debuts NYC Flagship & Oliver Peoples Collab

CFDA Womenswear Designer of the Year, Catherine Holstein of Khaite, had a very busy New York Fashion Week. Her small, intimate runway show (which received raves from the fashion set) was held at the site of her first-ever brick and mortar store. The boutique, which sits at 165 Mercer Street in Soho, is a model of ’90s Manhattan minimalism. The space’s defining materials—poured concrete, glass, and steel—reference the immensity and grit of the city which Holstein calls home. Awash in natural light from a number of skylights, the space feels cavernous and raw. A smooth-trunked evergreen tree, known as the “Shady Lady,” which appears to emerge from the ground, adds an element of tranquil surprise to the space. On offer at the location are Khaite’s new eyewear collaboration with the LA-based Oliver Peoples. Like everything Holstein touches, the sunglasses are simultaneously sleek, unique, and a natural extension of the designer’s downtown cool aesthetic. The store is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Sunday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.

La Ligne Launches Denim

Jeans have always been part of La Ligne’s classic fashion formula. So much so that for years the brand’s founders Molly Howard, Meredith Melling, and Valerie MacCaulay have been fielding requests for the denim often styled with their popular striped essentials. Now, inquiring minds finally have a solution with the launch of the label’s own line of denim staples. The first collection of three styles—The Molly, The Meredith, and The Valerie—take their name and fit inspiration from La Ligne’s co-founders while the corresponding campaign stars friend of the brand (better known as a member of La Bande), Selma Blair. To shop the collection visit lalignenyc.com.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Takes The Stellar Odyssey to Dubai

Jaeger-LeCoultre hosted Dubai’s glitterati and a mix of international press on the 2nd of February to mark the opening of their The Stellar Odyssey exhibition. Housed in a pavilion that appears to float on the waters of the Dubai Fountain, and boasting the Burj Khalifa as its backdrop, the Stellar Odyssey celebrates the relationship between astronomical phenomena and the measurement of time. On display in the exhibition are a collection of the maison’s most remarkable historic timepieces, as well as its most recent celestially-inspired timepieces. The exhibition also features multi-media installations that take visitors on a virtual journey to the cosmos. Other highlights of The Stellar Odyssey include a new art installation, Passengers: Through Time by the French visual artist, Guillaume Marmin, and a menu of soft cocktails by the world-renowned mixologist Matthias Giroud. Dubai was chosen as the first stop on a tour of major world cities, which will continue throughout 2023 and beyond.

Loewe x Howl’s Moving Castle

Just five months after Loewe’s first collaboration with Studio Ghibli—the acclaimed animator, director, and screenwriter Hayao Miyazaki’s animation and production company—the Spanish fashion house is back with yet another collection inspired by Miyazaki’s fantastical worlds. While the last iteration paid homage to the classic Spirited Away, this particular capsule is a tribute to the 2004 film Howl’s Moving Castle. The movie, which is loosely based upon a 1986 novel of the same name, starred the likes of Christian Bale and Emily Mortimer voicing the characters. So it only makes sense that Loewe would cast some A-list Hollywood talent for its collab campaign. Enter: Bones and All star Taylor Russell, who was photographed by Juergen Teller for the advertisements holding leather goods that bear images from the film, along with a slew of ready-to-wear. The collection will be available at a pop-up Loewe will host at Saks Fifth Avenue from February 2nd-8th, as well as in stores and online.

Future Collective with Gabriella Karefa-Johnson

Call it a major win for fashion editors and stylists everywhere—Gabriella Karefa-Johnson, the global contributing fashion editor at large for American Vogue, has snagged a collaboration with Target’s Future Collective subbrand. Karefa-Johnson’s eclectic and magpie personal fashion sense has led to major cover styling gigs with the likes of Serena Williams, Florence Pugh, and Bella Hadid (as well as an appearance in a fashion story in the pages of W magazine). And now, her diverse approach to playing with proportion, prints, and lots of color has translated to a Target clothing line through the mega-retailer’s Future Collective program. Through Future Collective, Karefa-Johnson will release a collection of almost 100 items over the course of three seasonal refreshes; the first batch will drop on Sunday, January 29. With pieces like dresses, skirts, outerwear, matching sets, and slacks, all available in an inclusive size and price range, there’s something for everyone. Available on the Target website and in select Target stores.

Alaïa Returns to SoHo

It’s been a decade since Alaïa has had a storefront in downtown New York and while much has changed about the retail landscape, the desire for the legendary label’s feminine designs has never wavered. Now a new flagship at 149 Mercer Street affords shoppers the opportunity to get up close to the latest collections while mingling among world-renowned art work and furniture curated by creative director Pieter Mulier. At the boutique-meets-gallery you’ll find pieces by the likes of Robert Rauschenberg, Donald Judd, and Mike Kelly. “I’ve chosen to show works that celebrate American art, from design to painting,” Mulier said in a statement. “I’ve compiled some of my favorite artists, the ones that never stop inspiring me…”

The store is open Monday-Saturday 11am-7pm and Sunday 12pm-6pm.

Cartier Updates the Tank Française

Like so many brands these days, Cartier is revisiting a ‘90s with a refresh of its classic Tank Française. Originally launched in 1996, the style known for its metal bracelet quickly became an important member of the iconic Tank family. Twenty-seven years after its creation, the bracelet has been redesigned by the maison to create a more pure and ergonomic curve that works for all wrists. The launch of this reimagined watch is accompanied by a new campaign featuring friends of the house Catherine Deneuve and Rami Malek in a short fashion fantasy directed by Guy Ritchie.

The Snow Lodge x Guest in Residence

Aspen, Colorado isn’t just a skier’s dream destination. These days, it’s a hub for the rich and famous, with designer boutiques (Dior, Balenciaga, and Prada among them), plenty of sumptuous eats at fine restaurants, and a buzzing nightlife scene. Leading the pack of parties and events in Aspen is The Snow Lodge, the sister location to Montauk’s restaurant-slash-bar-slash-music-venue The Surf Lodge. Much like its Hamptons counterpart, The Snow Lodge—located inside The St. Regis Aspen Resort—features art, music, food, and fashion, with some of the industry’s top names popping up inside Snow Lodge’s walls. The latest celebrity to join in: Gigi Hadid, who collaborated with The Snow Lodge on a capsule for her cashmere brand, Guest in Residence. Consisting of limited-edition, unisex, cashmere pieces—think hoodies and comfy crewnecks—the collection is now on sale at a pop-up experiential and concept store inside The Snow Lodge (you can also purchase online, here). “Guest in Residence uses the finest cashmere to create high-quality pieces intended to be lasting heirlooms, so it will be fun to see the second generation of Snow Lodge patrons wearing it in the years to come,” said founder and creative director of The Surf Lodge Brands Jayma Cardoso.

The Telfar Wallet

If you’ve been holding back on investing in a Telfar accessory, now just might be the time to pull out your debit card. On January 13, the cult-favorite, New York City-based fashion label unveiled a brand-new, upcoming drop: wallets. While designer Telfar Clemens’s style known as “The Brooklyn Birkin” has cornered the market for understated, minimal totes—revitalizing the concept of the “It” bag as a result—this latest release will surely leave fans in a state of panic while they figure out how the hell to cop the piece before it sells out (given Telfar’s record of popularity, there’s a strong chance that it will). Starting Monday, January 23 at 12 PM EST, all 17 colorways of the 100 percent genuine leather wallet will be available for purchase on telfar.net. Set your alarms. Below, a look at all the offerings:

Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama

Just a hop, skip, and a jump from the Whitney Museum in New York City’s Meatpacking district, Louis Vuitton has opened a pop-up shop celebrating its 10th anniversary collaboration with Yayoi Kusama. Naturally, the store is covered in yellow and black dots, along with silver orbs adorning the floors and shelves—both are immediately identifiable signatures from the Japanese contemporary artist. But the design elements come second to the stunning collection: Vuitton’s Damier print has been remixed by Kusama herself (who, true to form, painted multicolored spots all over the maison’s handbags), and features offerings for all genders. There are sporty and office-ready pieces galore—from sneakers to a pair of standout studded lug-sole loafers—but we were particular fans of the dotted raincoat with the Damier leather collar, and the pumpkins (yet another Kusama signature) that were actually twee key holders attached to a range of purses. Shop the collection here.

Tiffany & Co. Meets the Fendi Baguette

Courtesy of Fendi

The phrase “name a more iconic duo, I’ll wait” is overused. But here, it is entirely applicable, and, frankly, a bit of an understatement. The collaborative Baguette bag from Tiffany & Co. and Fendi (which was introduced at the Italian fashion house’s NYFW celebration of the Baguette’s 25th anniversary back in September) is now available for purchase. Fendi’s only request of its collaborators? Put their own spin on the classic silhouette. Tiffany’s purse, done in robin’s-egg blue silk with a silver interlocking “F” logo, also features the signature “Please Return to Tiffany & Co.” tag, clipped onto the handle. There are, additionally, leather or crocodile-skin options for those looking to up the glam even further. But we personally love that little blue box—and wouldn’t mind wearing it on our arms, either.
