Fendi are dressing pooches on a plane
With the prospect of international travel looming, no one’s getting left behind, least of all man’s best friend. With this in mind, Fendi have released a new travel line for dogs and other furry beasts, so that’s one less thing you have to worry about. Comprising a pooch-sized carry-on, a water repellent nylon coat (that we’d like in human size) and a leash collar with customiseable name plates, now the whole crew can travel in style.

With their Paula’s Ibiza collaboration Loewe are able to fuse bohemian craft with Balearic bliss, a potent combination that’s rendered in immersive detail with their new Ibiza pop-up at Harrods.

Vivienne Westwood unveiled her latest collection with Asics 
For the last few years this collaboration has happily simmered along, delivering some really great shoes along the way. Their latest love-child is the GEL-KAYANO™ 27 DE, a newly unveiled shoe launching next month that nods to Dame Viv’s signature skills in deconstruction. Featuring a  hybridised design of military-grade rip-stop nylon, it’s a no-nonsense kind of sneaker that will still look great on the runway. The whole vision will be brought to life in an accompanying campaign video starring choreographer Holly Blakey that drops with the shoe’s release.

The ASICS X Vivienne Westwood GEL-KAYANO™ 27 DE launches on 1 May.
