Rick Owens lands on Moncler, while Harry Styles lands on Gucci
COME TO THE DARK SIDE, WE HAVE MONCLER!
To celebrate its 70th birthday, Moncler is launching a Rick Owens-designed Maya jacket – which is one of their most famous pieces. Landing on November 5, the collaboration follows on from the launch of Hiroshi Fujiwara's reinterpretation last week, and looks like the kind of bulbous architecture beloved by Michèle Lamy. Head over to Moncler to see more.
COME TO THE DARK SIDE, WE HAVE CHLOÉ!
Also to celebrate its 70th, Chloé has become the latest subject of a Thames and Hudson retrospective tome. As always, it traces the history of the brand from Gaby Aghion, to Karl Lagerfeld, to Martine Sitbon, Stella McCartney, and Phoebe Philo – with a foreword by Suzy Menkes. Clear up that coffee table, girlies!
IT’S A COACH CHRISTMAS
And now to celebrate Christmas: Coach has just unveiled its yuletide campaign, starring Jennifer Lopez, Zoey Deutch, and Chan-Young Yoon. Dubbed Feel the Wonder, the whole thing has been shot and directed by Anton Gottlob and showcases the label’s AW22 collection. See more from that here – including a new virtual shopping location.
FERRAGAMO UNLEASHES ITS SS23 COLLECTION
To celebrate Maximilian Davis’ debut at Ferragamo, the brand is selling an edited preview of its SS23 collection – available for one month only. Comprising blinged-out evening wear, harness trousers, heels, and handbags, the offering chimes with the designer’s future vision. “I wanted to pay tribute to Salvatore’s start by bringing in the culture of Hollywood – but new Hollywood. Its ease and sensuality; its sunset and sunrise,” he said. Click here to see more.
HARRY LAMBERT KISSES PERCIVAL
To celebrate his headline-making styling, Harry Lambert has launched a capsule collection with menswear brand Percival. Inspired by “nightshade” – a botanical term – the collaboration includes boxy wool jackets, aubergine embroideries, oversized shirts, mohair vests, and wide-legged trousers. Though the lookbook has been released, the collection will officially launch next week online and in Percival stores.
HARRY STYLES’ LAUGHS IN THE FACE OF GUCCI
To celebrate, erm, collaborations, Harry Styles’ HAHAHA campaign with Gucci has just come out. Shot by Mark Borthwick, the singer-actor-designer-make-up-mogul is cloaked in gingham suits, holds a chair, and sits atop piles and piles of clothing. See more of that here.
GCDS AND CLARKS GET TOGETHER
Known for his cosmic designs at GCDS, Italian designer Guiliano Calzana has collaborated with Clarks, a lodestone of the UK highstreet. The duo will unveil a unisex collection of mules and loafers, some emblazoned with leopard prints, others with big old buckles. “The aim of the project was to design the perfect shoes for both elegant and everyday use. As a kid, I always believed Clarks were the shoes for important occasions, and now, thanks to this amazing collaboration between us, I think these are the right shoes for any occasion,” Calzana says. The offering launches today (November 4) online and in stores.
