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 Gucci in Tinsel Town and Samuel Ross’ Dr Martens.
A-COLD-WALL* collaborated with Dr Martens
Under a united passion for subcultural heritage, the two brands joined forces to reimagine DM’s iconic 1461 shoe. Deconstructing the footwear style, ACW creative director Samuel Ross filtered his own working-class upbringing and surrounding childhood environment into the design, conjuring images of brutalist architecture and utilitarian aesthetics. The resulting shoe features an ice-out transparent sole with structural black leather upper and sleek EVA drop in.
Gucci took over LA
Titled The Love Parade, Alessandro Michele’s latest show for the Italian house brought even more stars to Hollywood Boulevard’s already star-ridden pavement for his own ode to Tinsel Town. Jodie Turner-Smith, Jared Leto, Macaulay Culkin and Phoebe Bridgers all walked, while the likes of Miley Cyrus, Linda Ramone, Diane Keaton and Dakota Johnson sat front row. Mega.
Samsøe & Samsøe’s latest campaign celebrates family
Spotlighting the brand’s new unisex capsule collection, photographer Matthieu Delbreuve has been busy documenting families and couples wearing the new line, celebrating the idea of commitment and compassion. Reflecting on the idea of time passed and good times to come, models include 50-year married couple Pierre and Yetty, as well as Nikita the dog.
