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 Marni homeware essentials, new designers at Trussardi and Kiko Kostadinov’s debut fragrance.
Berluti makes sweet music with Bang & Olufsen
The heritage Italian brand offers its exquisite leather savoir-faire to B&O’s impeccable sonic quality, resulting in a collection of luxury speakers and headphones that look as good as they sound.
Marni are opening a homeware pop-up
Sling out all your old furniture and fill your house with beautiful Marni goodness courtesy of the Italian brand’s new Marni Market installation at Matchesfashion’s 5 Carlos Place location.
In typical Marni style, these are beautifully crafted pieces: from hand-woven chairs to resin trays, fruit baskets, nature-inspired sculptures, artisanal rugs and vibrant hammocks we’ve decided we want instead of desks. Each product is totally one-of-a-kind and is the result of a collaborative initiative with Colombian artisans who’ve been longtime partners with the Italian house. Needless to say, we want it all and you should too.
Marni Market opens at 5 Carlos Place on 2nd June.
Kim Jones is easing us back into life after WFH
The Dior artistic director has curated a luxury kit that offers all the home-comfort essentials. Including a silk-lined pochette night mask and the comfiest monogrammed slippers, we’ll be nailing a ‘do not disturb’ sign to our door. And we mean it.
GmbH designers take the helm at Trussardi
This week, design duo Benjamin Huseby and Serhat Işık announced themselves as creative directors of the century-old Milanese fashion house via Instagram. Leading a revival of the house, the pair will oversee all aspects of design, image and branding while continuing their own brand.
From conceiving GmbH in Berlin in 2016, Işık and Huseby have carved a contemporary and sensual aesthetic forged around the city’s dancefloors and inclusive communities. Throughout, they have used this platform to address topics of inclusivity and responsibility: they staged their menswear SS21 show in Sudan and showed a screening of Lars Laumann’s film A Season of Migration to the North, which tells the story of Eddie Esmail, a gay activist arrested during a fashion show in Sudan.
“Trussardi comes charged with pedigree and enormous untapped potential,” said the designers of their new role in a joint statement. “We were drawn to the possibility of building a house anew.”
Benjamin Huseby and Serhat Işık’s first collection for Trussardi will be FW22.

Kiko Kostadinov released his first-ever fragrance
Kiko Kostadinov’s debut foray into the world of perfumes is a solid effort in more ways than one. Teaming up with Tokyo-based brand retaW, the newly unveiled genderless scent combines vetiver, sandlewood, cedarwood and musk into a hard-paste perfume that you rub in to apply. The fragrance’s small tube packaging means you can carry this around in your pocket, just don’t mistake it for you Colgate.
