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 Samsøe  Samsøe’s FW23 campaign, a Heaven x Bleach London collab and Ferragamo’s Renaissance. 

16Arlington’s menswear has dropped
Having debuted at the brand’s coffee-filled FW23 show, it became instantly clear that 16Arlington’s menswear was every bit as glorious as its womenswear. The provocation and precision for which the London-based brand is best known saw sumptuous alpaca knitwear, bitter chocolate satin suiting, sweeping shearling coats, and oversized versions of the inimitable Kikka bag saunter down the runway. And now, Marco Capaldo’s menswear offering is finally available for us to get our hands on.

Ferragamo’s Italian Renaissance
For the Italian house’s FW23 campaign, Maximilian Davis returned to not just the roots of Ferragamo, but to art itself. Partnering with the Uffizi in Florence, Giorgio Vasari’s Portrait of Alessandro de Medici and Botticelli’s The Annunciation of San Martino alla Scala stand alongside the designer’s elegant creations.

Heaven by Marc Jacobs x Bleach London
Craving a multicoloured, punk-ish and unrecognisably cool makeover? Heaven by Marc Jacobs’ latest collab is the answer to your prayers. Teaming up with Alex Brownsell’s Bleach London hair salon, the pair have created a series of semi-permanent hair dyes for DIY experimentation in hues of Peptol Bismol pink, lime green and fiery red. Accompanied by a very cool ‘before and after’ campaign, a shared love of grunge, Gen Z and pop culture goodness proves this collaboration is quite literally a match made in heaven.
