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 fragrance, Wes Lang on the runway and Burberry gets animalistic.
Dior launched the Dior men’s Lingot
Evoking a jet-setting joie de vivre for the ultra-luxe luggage of decades past, Dior’s latest accessory offering is a new must-have. The Lingot, which translates to ingot in English, takes its name from the strong mould in which metal is cast to take shape. In this instance, that would be a staunchly structured carry case with hardware buckle fastenings and magnificent monogram detailing in the house’s signature Oblique canvas. Available in dark grey, mustard yellow, and striking green leather, carting around your pants and socks has never looked so suave.

Burberry got animalistic
Psychedelic, abstract cow-print artwork transformed the British house’s Rodeo Drive flagship into a whole new beast, while inside an immersive experience will tickle your senses.
Craig Green went wild
Textures poured out of one another, valves dangled and Stan Smiths were bolted in rubber. For FW22, the British designer’s nomads were navigating a warped world of tensions, contrasts and dimensions reflected in their newest uniform.
Loewe geared up for a famed day of romancing
Speaking in a love language that’s extremely alluring, Loewe has released a Valentine’s Day collection heaven sent from Cupid himself. Think elegant calf-skin clutches made over in blush-red jacquard anagrams, fitted bucket hats and sunglasses with lavish pink lenses. For her and for him, the 22-piece collection even includes a few ornate keyrings and wallet options, because although we might not know what the heart wants, we certainly trust that Loewe does.
British artist Luke Edward Hall released a debut fashion collection
Titled Chateau Orlando, the offering looks towards a very British sense of eccentricity and literary romance. A playful mash-up of 80s pop, vintage finds, folklore, mythology, stately homes and botanical gardens, these influences manifest across a collection of knitwear. Jumpers, cardigans, knitted vest and polo shirts alongside posters and trays for the perfect cuppa situation.

Amiri translated Wes Lang artworks for FW22
Grim reapers leaked from shearling coats and Native American chiefs were hand-painted emblems across a meticulous, craft-led collection made in partnership with Wes Lang.
Re/Done celebrated the hand-me-down
Think self-patch repairs and shrunken tees, grunge layering and 70s knits like those lovingly made by ya nan.

Telfar ham-it up with their forthcoming Valentine’s drop
The iconic New York fashion house has left us speechless with the announcement of their latest shopper colourway. Available in small, medium and large, please welcome to the stage the radiant, dazzling and utterly tantalising pinky-hue of… Corned Beef. Something tells us that the UK equivalent – ‘spam bag’ – just didn’t have the same ring to it.

Biebs x Balenciaga arrived
The long-awaited Justin Bieber x Balenciaga campaign is finally here, featuring cameos from the likes of Kim Kardashian and Isabelle Huppert. With photographer Stef Mitchell behind the lens, the series captures Demna’s various brand muses dressed head-to-toe in Balenciaga regalia in their own humble abodes. Bieber himself can be seen sporting a pair of torn to shreds wide-leg jeans paired with the tire-like Balenciaga Defender, an all-white sneaker with a curved, indented sole. We dig this look alright.
Rick Owens and Michele Lamy release a limited edition fragrance
Fashion’s most alluring duo, Rick and Michele, have bottled up some of their wisdom in a limited edition perfume. Lending its name from Lamy’s interactive Selfridges pop-up, Lamyland, only 1000 bottles of the secret scent have been produced, valued at $1,700 with its bronze and silver bottle caps and calfskin box insulation. So if you ever wondered what the signature aroma of Owens’ SS22 Fogachine collection might be, Lamyland deems it a striking blend of black Nepal cardamom and Calabria bergamot with gold incense, myrrh and a smooth, vetiver java and vanilla base.
