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 an exclusive Marni x MR Porter capsule, cowboy Gant and dinner in a Saint Laurent store.
Mr Porter launched a special capsule with Marni
Mr Porter has opened the door to Marni Mania. Excited? Duh. It’s a magnificent 26-piece exclusive collection comprised of RTW Marni signatures: brushed striped mohair, nappa leathers, hoodies, globes, hats, fuzzy shearling and graphic shapes. The collection also boasts a new Marnigram print, a griddled white pattern of flowers, hearts and moons.
Harris Reed was appointed creative director at Nina Ricci
The youngest designer to helm the French fashion house, Reed’s dramatic, glam rock silhouettes are an exciting match for Nina Ricci’s inherent romance and classicism. Presenting their debut collection in early 2023, we’re anticipating big things – and we aren’t just talking about those hat brims.

Say goodbye to Salvatore Ferragamo, say hello to Ferragamo
New season, new look for the Italian brand, who begin a bold new chapter with London-based designer Maximilian Davis at the helm. Designed by renowned graphic designer Peter Saville, who also designed Riccardo Tisci’s Burberry logo, the house’s new logo is described as “an energetically streamlined style… recalling the classical stone inscriptions that inspired Renaissance artists.”
In the words of Peter Saville himself: “The equity of Florence is in the culture of the company: that led me to the choice of a classic font. The vision is exacting and modern. Thereafter, the font is reduced and becomes modernist. Then there is the craft that is quintessentially Ferragamo, which is condensed in the idea of an inscription set in stone. Within this tension lies the new logotype and the complex balance it expresses.”
It’s Moncler‘s 70th anniversary
And the Italian brand is going big, taking over the iconic Piazza del Duomo in Milan with a special dance performance directed by avant-garde French choreographer Sadeck Berrabah, kickstarting a 70-day program of special events and brand experiences around the world. And in true Moncler form, the anniversary is being commemorated with a limited-edition logo – an infinity symbol wrapping the brand’s signature mountain cockerel with the number 70.
Nadia Lee Cohen, Gant and Wrangler nailed Americana
Doing what she does best, Nadia Lee Cohen shot the new Gant x Wrangler collab campaign as a surreal ranch. Here, Lee Cohen becomes a rodeo star atop a horse and a lassoing cowgirl, while bootcut denim, suede truckers and varsity jackets sit comfortably on hay bales and arid desertscapes.
