Meltdown by Seletti and Jordanluca
Smash up all your kitchenware, it’s obsolete now that this new homeware collection by Seletti and Jordanluca has been released.

So whether you’re dining with DJ royalty or royalty royalty, this is what you serve in.

A.P.C. quilts are back for round 24
Jessica Ogden’s quilt designs for A.P.C. have become a staple of the brand since the first collection in 2010. Growing from a desire to revive the stocks of A.P.C. fabrics that had accumulated over the seasons, the quilt line has gained a cult following due to its clean patterns and unique designs.

The latest collection, Round 24, was inspired by the paintings of artist Sean Scully. “After the complex concept of Series 23,” Ogden says, “Scully’s minimalist works spoke to me, with their sort of subtle, rhythmic breathing and unexpected colour choices.”

A.P.C. Quilts Round 24 are available in-store and online now.

Just opened at Armani/Silos in Milan this week, Aldo Fallai per Giorgio Armani, 1977-2021 is a new exhibition dedicated to the work of photographer Aldo Fallai and explores almost thirty years of uninterrupted artistic dialogue between Giorgio Armani and Fallai. As the lens through which Giorgio Armani’s most iconic images have been shot, the exhibition is a tribute by Armani to his closest collaborator.

C.P. Company and Palace rejoin forces
Following the success of their first collaboration, C.P. Company and Palace have teamed up for another collection that fuses the Italian brand’s innovative sportswear with Palace’s eclectic aesthetic. The Goggle Jacket, with its removable fleece lining, is made from Kan – D, a monofilament nylon, so named for its resemblance to the cellophane candy wrappers of the 1950s and 1960s. Further pieces in the collection include a range of everyday garments such as cargo pants in Flatt Nylon, a hooded sweatshirt in cotton fleece, a short-sleeved t-shirt with the distinctive graphics of both brands and a lambswool funnel neck sweater.
