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 hypebeast cuisines, Abloh-approved beauty products and an auction for the ages.
Off-White debuted their first beauty line, Paperwork
For the first time in the house’s decade-long reign, Off-White is pivoting into the beauty world with a genderless collection of scents and colour focused cosmetics. This burgeoning empire is set to launch with four fragrances, sorry, solutions, and will soon expand to include Colour Matter nail polishes and the brand’s Imprint face and body crayons, introducing shoppers to “a new dimension of beauty as a genderless, inclusive art form at the intersection of humanity and individuality.” Count us in.
High fashion treasures went up for auction
Ever fancied yourself the owner of a Joan Collins-cosigned blazer plucked straight from the SS99 runway of Alexander McQueen? How about an original parachute shirt from Vivienne Westwood’s Seditionaries line, or a pair of leather cowboy boots designed by Gianni Versace for Elton John, complete with gold studded medusa head buckles? Well, for the starting price of £2,500, they could be yours via Bonham’s latest high-octane auction. Boasting 280 insane items from across the worlds of film, music and fashion, this mini-list doesn’t even scrape the barrel of iconic treasures left hiding in this lot.

Kim Jones saved the planet with Dior Men’s latest beachwear drop
With the first glimpse of the summer sun as his witness, Kim Jones has tasked himself with making the coolest eco-conscious beachwear known to man. Partnering up with Parley for the Oceans, an environmental NGO specialising in sustainable fashion, the two have collaborated on a capsule of breezy shorts, tracksuit tops, pebble knit polos and Oblique monogram-printed drinks holders, some made entirely out of threads spun from plastic ocean waste. Pretty slick if you ask us…
Supreme launched their own pasta line
Feeling hungry? This week’s SS22 Supreme drop will fill your stomach and empty your pockets, that’s for sure. This season has seen the New York skate brand get carte blanche over Burberry’s iconic novacheck, pay a much-needed homage to Queen of Rap, Lil’ Kim, and now, for their next trick, attempt to conquer the culinary world. Starting accessible, the brand have opted for a Kraft-branded favourite, and devised its own lettered Supreme macaroni and cheese shapes. No word yet on how they taste, but at least they’ll make a good snap for your food Instagram.
Daniel w. Fletcher pops the cork on his collaboration with Courvoisier
Fashion and hard booze go together like peas in a pod. So, it makes sense that, for Daniel w. Fletcher’s next trick, the London-based designer has teamed up with Courvoisier to breathe new life into their VSOP – Very Superior Old Pale. Lifting from his breathtaking FW22 collection, Fletcher has channelled the joy he receives from painting into a capsule of painted denim jeans, tees and sweatshirts, also lending his colourful brush strokes to 200 bottles of Courvoisier cognac, all handpainted and numbered by the designer himself.
