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 KNWLS x Jean-Paul Gaultier, Swarovski shades and Stan Smiths sliced and diced.

LFW is happening
Yep, the SS24 season is in full swing and the sun is shining down as London’s old and new guard showcase their latest collections. So far we’ve had JW Anderson clay garments, Chopova Lowena’s rebellious youth and Mowalola’s beautiful car crash.

Stay tuned for our full SS24 coverage.

Breakfast at Burberry’s
Have you noticed? London is being Burberry-fied. Not only has Bond Street station changed its name to Burberry Street, but the British fashion house has teamed up with cult north London cafe, Norman’s – so now you can get your morning toast and two on a Burberry Knight plate. Yum.

Swarovski sunglasses
Yes, now you can decorate your face with Swarovski crystals thanks to a new eyewear line created with EssilorLuxottica.

See the below image shot by Steven Meisel.

KNWLS X Jean Paul Gaultier is here
Punk dreams come true: KNWLS have collaborated with Jean-Paul Gaultier. Clashing prints and silhouettes synonymous with both brands, a hand-stencilled trompe-l’œil tattoo print is inspired by heavy-metal ephemera, serpents bite nipples and a decaying fence found in the street becomes the muse for a scratched wood pattern. Corset shapes become twisted tailoring and skin-tight mini-dresses wrap the body like moshpit mummies. It’s badass.

Lanvin goes under the knife
Recruiting LA artist Dominic Ciambrone, aka The Shoe Surgeon, Lanvin have offered up its skate-inspired Curb sneaker for a limited edition customisation job. Combining traditional craftsmanship with contemporary processes, the resulting sneaker pulls its tonal inspiration from both LA and Paris, while stick ‘n’ poke style tattoo imagery combines both worlds within an ethos of creative expression.

The second instalment of Nigo’s debut sneaker series for Kenzo is a maximalist meets marathon runner mash-up. PACE is an aerodynamic shoe with an aesthetic rooted in the universe of running, given a Kenzo twist with reflective logo detailing and contrasting graphics on the outsole.
