Duke + Dexter got Cali cool
London footwear connoisseurs Duke + Dexter are taking us to the country club for SS22. Inspired by a refined sense of relaxation and leisure, the brand mix this with a cut-loose narrative of summer drives with the roof down: revs and riffs all the way, baby. Within this storyline, the resulting collection moves from classic two-tone loafers to sporty sneakers cast in classic pastel hues. And to really get you in the mood, the accompanying campaign is set at the Holmby Park Lawn Bowling Club in California, painting a scene we can really see ourselves amongst.

Berluti made a deckchair
Summer’s ‘ere! So time to get out your old camping chair… or not. Behold the new Berluti collaboration with luxury French outdoor furniture brand Tectona. Taking Tectona’s classic Copacabana line and giving it the Berluti treatment, a teak, reclining deck chair is decorated in the French house’s signature Scritto print alongside a folding bed for ultimate sunbathing positioning. The furniture will be complemented by a RTW collection and leather goods line for that ultimate summer wardrobe.

The limited edition of 60 deck chairs and 23 folding beds will be exclusively available in a selection of 30 Berluti stores worldwide from May and on the Berluti e-shop.

Rhuigi Villaseñor dropped a Zara collab
You’d think running his own brand Rhude and preparing his debut collection as creative director at Bally was a fine balancing act in itself, however US designer Rhuigi Villaseñor is proving even more prolific than we first thought, designing a new collaborative project with Zara.  Titled RHU (Redesigning Human Uniform), the collection blends sportswear tropes with Villaseñor’s signature casual formality – we’d like to be part of whichever team Rhuigi’s on, please.

Canali did technical tailoring
The Italian house loves to push tailoring to its boundaries, and beyond. Now comes Canali Balance, a range of clothing crafted from high-tech fabrics treated with a natural mineral compound. The benefits? Garments retain your body heat and yet the material stays breathable for maximum comfort and movement. To highlight the collection’s versatility, Canali has recruited Italian Olympic fencing champion Daniele Garozzo as the face of the campaign – touché.

Mr Porter got crafty
The fashion retailer is launching its second Small World collection, continuing to commit to a Craftmanship Code that champions artisanal heritage and responsible style. Curated from twenty-two global brands that showcase the very best of their respective local community’s design principles. LA’s King Kennedy Rugs artfully rework vintage rugs into totes and jackets while Japan Best highlights the country’s small businesses and Indonesia’s Space Available are repurposing plastic waste into homeware and low-impact clothes.
