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 Burberry at the beach, Celine’s beauty line and Alaïa’s new Bond Street digs. 

Celine presented their FW24 collection
Hedi Slimane’s FW24 Celine womenswear film started with the Arc de Triomphe – a monument of significant meaning for the fashion House. The story goes that in 1971, Celine Vipiana found herself on Place de L’Etoile after her car broke down. Looking upwards, she noticed the chain link pattern encircling the Arc de Triomphe – she would soon after adapt this motif as the Maison’s monogram; later redesigned with a modernist twist by Slimane upon his arrival in 2018. This season was a tribute to the Triomphe monogram, and also to legendary photographer Richard Avedon, a dear friend and mentor of Slimane’s who sadly passed away in 2004.

Burberry hit the beach
For Burberry’s Summer ’24 campaign, the British house headed to the shores of Jamaica, bringing a cast of familiar faces and new model recruits along with them for the ride. Photographed by Tyrone Lebon, the campaign captures a sense of summer outdoor living, something we could all do with during this rainy March.


Y/Project FW24
There was high drama in Paris this season after word got out that Y/Project were cancelling their FW24 show. But fear not, Y/Project didn’t skip this season entirely, instead, the brand opted to present the collection celebrating ten years of Martens as creative director in the form of a lookbook. Amongst an eclectic roster of models featuring everyone from Charli XCX and Irina Shayk to Martens’ father and Interview Magazine editor-in-chief Mel Ottenberg, the collection is a classic mix of traditional silhouettes punctuated with science fiction-like creations.

Diesel’s SS24 campaign drop
Personally chosen by creative director Glenn Martens, Diesel’s latest campaign cast is a weird and wonderful who’s who of Guinness World Record holders. Presented as a tongue-in-cheek ode to TV talent shows, the man who can hold the most silver spoons on his face and the oldest bodybuilder ever don Martens’ denim in style.


Celine announced a beauty line
As Hedi Slimane took a trip to the golden age of 60s glamour for Celine’s FW24 collection film La Collection de l’Arc de Triompheamid the mini skirts, pussy-bows and A-line shift dresses, a brand new cosmetic collection was unveiled: Celine Beauté. A first for the house, Celine Beauté was created by Slimane as an extension of the haute parfumerie collection, which has distilled the essence of the House into fragrances for the past five years.


Alaïa’s new flagship store
Under the creative direction of Pieter Mulier, Alaïa’s flagship store at 139 New Bond Street has been given a makeover. Spread across three floors, the new space arrives complete with fresh minimalist interiors, a café and a selection of artworks from the likes of Sterling Ruby,  Steven Shearer, Thomas Ruff and Sarah Lucas.


K-Pop girl band ILLIT front Acne Studios’ campaign
Following ILLIT’s front-row appearance at Acne Studios’ FW24 show in Paris last month, the K-pop girl band now stars in the brand’s latest campaign. A phenomenon with Gen Z already despite being the newest addition to K-pop’s ever-growing music scene, they’ve got the stamp of approval from Acne’s creative director Jonny Johansson. Speaking on the campaign he said, “Music is a big part of my life and often inspires me; music and fashion are so intertwined. Right now, it is all about K-pop. We loved the idea of working with a band from the start of their career and growing with them.”


Birkenstock’s 1774 collection
Inspired by downtown New York’s trailblazing arts scene during the 70s and 80s, Birkenstock’s latest collection celebrates these eras of artistic experimentation and collaboration. Shot by Max Farago on young New Yorkers, the collection comprises six styles, including newcomers the 33 Dougal and the 222 West.



Loewe’s latest fragrance drop
Loewe is adding two new signature scents to its already extensive perfumery repertoire, announcing the release of Agua Drop and Solo Vulcan. Inspired by the scent of the Spanish rockrose wildflower, Agua offers floral notes of bergamot and woody amber while Solo fuses notes of thyme, lavender and vetiver to offer a scent with herbal undertones.
