LOUIS VUITTON LOCHS IN ITS NEXT VENUE
Having transformed its AW23 runway into a cobbled simulacrum of a Parisian street, Louis Vuitton has set its sights on somewhere slightly more deluxe for its upcoming Cruise show. Set to take place on May 24 on Isola Bella (one of the islands dotted around Lake Maggiore) in northern Italy, the brand has described the location as “a treasure chest of Baroque art suspended over the water.” Stay tuned to see more from the collection.
BURBERRY GETS BOOKED AND BUSY
Less than a month after Daniel Lee reestablished its house codes, Burberry has now launched a coffee table tome charting its evolution from a quaint family business into a global luxury brand. Published by Assouline, the book travels over the past 165 years with five chapters and 200 illustrations. “It’s the stuff of legends,” Carly Eck, who is head of Burberry’s archive, says.

STEFAN COOKES UP A NEW COLLECTION
Following the loss of a close relative, Stefan Cooke and Jake Burt made the decision not to show at London Fashion Week, opting to debut their AW23 collection with a lookbook instead. The duo drew inspiration from 1979 book The Right Stuff, which chronicled the lives of astronauts and test pilots in California’s Edwards Air Force base. There were stripped epaulettes, Buffalo aviator jackets with explosive crocheted hems, upcycled medical jackets, and lots of monogrammed knitwear. Click here to see more.
