NAOMI CAMPBELL IS HAILED THE BOSS
Fronting Boss’ AW22 campaign is Naomi Campbell, who stands alongside Future, Kendall Jenner, Anthony Joshua, and Khaby Lame, embodying “what it takes to be your own boss.” Alongside the imagery, elements of the campaign will be turned into digital art and available to own as NFTs – because, of course – while the “Tag a BOSS” challenge will circulate on social media.

JACQUEMUS MOVES INTO SELFRIDGES
Having taken over The Selfridges Corner Shop earlier this year, this week Simon Porte Jacquemus returned as a permanent fixture in the flagship’s accessories department.

DURAN LANTINK GETS A SECOND CHANCE AT BROWNS
Splice and dice designer Duran Lantink has returned with his second zero-waste capsule at Browns, transforming deadstock garments from the boutique’s warehouses into asymmetric gowns, reconstructed shearling, and cut-out swimsuits – all of which started like as Dries Van Noten, Rosie Assoulin, Tibi, Acne Studios, and Shrimps garments. Take a look at the Be Conscious collection here.
KIM JONES SKINS SOME RACING CAR DRIVERS
Kim Jones has designed Dior skins for the videogame Gran Turismo 7, which will be available from August 25.

LUAR DOES PRADA
This week, LUAR announced that it would be christening a new pop-up store with a tangerine, pony hide iteration of its Ana bag – the real Bushwick Birkin?? It’s also the protagonist of a new campaign, which reimagines the Prada Marfa store in the Chihuahuan desert as a LUAR outpost. The pop-up shop will be one day and one day only on August 9 at a location which will be revealed on the brand’s Instagram account the evening prior. See more of the campaign here.
BLUMARINE POPS-UP IN HARRODS
For the entire month of August, a dedicated space will be set-up in Harrods showcasing Blumarine’s AW22 collection.

Head down to Harrods to see what’s in store.
TREMAINE EMORY RESURRECTS PYREX
Tremaine Emory has teased a posthumous collaboration with Virgil Abloh on Instagram – pasting the late-designer’s signature Pyrex shirts with Denim Tears branding, while another image shows Caravaggio’s Resurrection emblazoned on a long-sleeve top, captioned with “Abloh Caravaggio Tears”. Though details are scant for now, it seems the collaboration will be sold in partnership with the Brooklyn Museum, which is currently hosting an exhibition in honour of Abloh.
