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 Acne Studios art and an Elliss pop-up.
Napapijri and Fiorucci imagine a neon-toned explorer
“I wanted this collection to transport its wearers, whether that be into the mountains or up into space,” says Daniel Fletcher, artistic director at Fiorucci, about this new collaborative collection. Two holiday destinations at the top of our list, we’ll be sure to bag this offering of discoball silver padded puffers, colour-pop anoraks and fleeces populated by the iconic Fiorucci Angels.

Watch our HEROINE 17 Alexander McQueen fashion film
Against a dramatic soundscape and sci-fi lighting, we bring Sarah Burton’s FW22 vision for the British fashion house to life. Shot by Samuel Stephenson, styled by Keeley Dawson and modelled by Anna Engelhardt – here, she morphs and transforms wrapped in Burton’s ethereal garments.
Edie Campbell turned designer for Sunspel
Inspired by “some really stylish men”, which included rockers Nick Cave and Jarvis Cocker, alongside Danny DeVito as Harry Wormwood in Matilda (classic!), Campbell combined her own sensibilities with Sunspel’s heritage roots, resulting in a collection of classic British style and trusted womenswear essentials: oversized houndstooth blazers, thick cable knits and lightweight polos. All that, plus Alasdair McLellan shot the campaign.

Luke Edward Hall X Rowing Blazers
Speaking of classic style, artist and designer Luke Edward Hall is something of a connoisseur on the subject – transporting historical and artistic references within a twisted world of fantasy and storytelling. Now comes his second collaboration with NYC-based brand Rowing Blazers, celebrating Luke’s love of classical motifs and Rowing Blazers’ founder Jack Carlson’s background as a trained archaeologist (he previously completed a PhD in archaeology at Oxford and worked as a field archaeologist, excavating temples in Italy).
Here, worlds blend and blur: Tutankhamun’s golden mask; ruined columns; the goddess Minerva; and a watercolour illustration of the Roman Forum are all projected across heavyweight rugby shirts, French terry crewnecks, woven neckties and corduroy.
The collection is available now from rowingblazers.com
Shop Maximilian Davis’ Ferragamo collection in virtual reality
Welcome to The World of Ferragamo, a newly-launched immersive, online store where you can shop a special edit of Maximilian Davis’ debut Ferragamo collection. We like this place so much, we’ve redesigned our studio with red marble dust.
Elliss are opening a pop-up store
Located on Calvert Avenue, E2, and open next weekend, this is a great time to get your hands on some of the London brand’s new FW22 collection, fittingly titled, Rehearsal for the Apocalypse. Here, you can pick up some signature printed mesh bodies, graphic woven trousers and cut-out dresses, amongst much more. Also on offer will be garments from previous seasons at discount prices – love it.
