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 Charles Jeffrey aliens, a Burberry campaign and Balenciaga’s bubblegram.
Fred Perry and Charles Jeffrey went nu-rave
The two British subcultural heavyweights joined forces for a collection of tartan and DIY punk. What’s more, Jeffrey cast members of Waltz Disco and Lucia & the Best Boys as strange creatures roaming the streets of Glasgow for a gloriously odd accompanying short film.
Zegna questions modern living
The Italian house continues to explore its idea of the ‘modern man’ with a campaign featuring models, a dancer, a fashion buyer and photographer. Enough from us, this is what artistic director Alessandro Sartori had to say about the campaign and collection: “To me, this was the perfect time to rethink what is possible, to reconsider what really matters and to rebalance style while we are called to answer to changing times. A new aesthetic is needed: fluid, ageless, adaptable, where comfort matches perfectly with style.”
2 Moncler 1952 Man looks towards Tokyo
Specifically, designer Sergio Zambon honed in on the city’s environmental mindset. Within this, the idea of ‘resting out’ is realised across a delicately knitted tracksuit, ribbed trousers, a skirt that wraps with the feel of a towel, ponchos and street-worthy slippers. Technical light-reflective puffers offer multiple interactions and a collaboration with artist Karo Akpokiere casts his comic-like illustrations across key pieces – even reinterpreting the Moncler logo.
Burberry revealed its FW21 campaign
Featuring classical stills by Mert & Marcus alongside candid backstage imagery taken by Chris Rhodes, Riccardo Tisci spoke of the campaign exploring “creative perspectives.” All we know is it looks great and we desperately want one of those eared beanie hats.
Amiri told us to take a deep breath and chill
The LA house served up its SS22 collection this week with a massive chill pill. Informed by wellness and fantasy, loose fabrics were delicately textured and tailoring was deconstructed into artful silhouettes. And where better to set this reality-blurring vision than Vegas – the luxury Wynn Las Vegas hotel and casino, to be exact.
Balenciaga dropped a series of bubblegram sculptures
What’s a bubblegram you ask? It’s a holographic rendering of a 3D object cut into a solid block of glass or plastic with high-powered lasers. If that doesn’t clear things up check out what Balenciaga have done, suspending four of their most recognised sneaker styles in slabs of glass that are now available for purchase as part of their Objects line.
Loewe release Eye/Loewe/Nature FW21
With an emphasis on patchwork and upcycling, Loewe’s latest collection for their dedicated outdoors line is inspired by, and designed for, the natural world. Utilising hybrid forms that combine tailoring and sportswear, it’s an open invitation to get out there and get exploring.
