Time flies, so to keep you in the loop, we’ve rounded up all the important snippets of fashion news from the past seven days into one neat feature. This week includes a Rick Owens collab and Saint Laurent by the sea (read: River).
Saint Laurent‘s SS21 campaign took a swim

Swedish label and retailer Très Bien launched a new collection
Titled ATELJÉ (translation: studio/atelier), the offering cements the brand’s commitment to their native Malmö: all garments have been created either in-house or at local ateliers, and all without industrial machines – emphasising a commitment to artisan craft. Using luxury Italian fabrics, classic shapes and tailoring staples are elevated in tune with the brand’s sustainable and contemporary ethos, while sportswear elements include a baseball jersey inspired by Michael Jordan’s golfing shirt.

Using their very own Hardwood Smoked Bacon to give the laces their sizzling scent, these are bound to make you very popular with the dogs in your local park.
Oscar Mayer will be hosting a competition running from now until 1st April, to enter tweet Oscar Mayer using the hashtags #OscarCookMyKicks and #Sweepstakes.
