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 Robert Pattinson for Dior, S.S. Daley’s dachshunds and Loewe’s Paula’s Ibiza scent. 

Robert Pattinson is the face of Dior
Dior have unveiled their new Dior Icons campaign starring the caped crusader (and Dior ambassador) Robert Pattinson! With the Dior Icons capsule, Kim Jones continues to reinvent the vocabulary of the House’s menswear identity with a timeless and architectural wardrobe.


Stefan Cooke’s latest campaign
The campaign for Stefan Cooke’s SS24 Away collection has just dropped. Photographed by Theo Sion and styled by Alice Goddard, the campaign shots focus around the huge foam fingers that were the inspiration for the collection that opened London Fashion Week last September.


Moncler is taking over Milan Central station
Salone del Mobile’s jam-packed schedule is a tricky one to navigate, but if you’re heading to the fair next week then make sure to add a pit stop at the city’s Central Station to your list because Moncler will be presenting a large-scale public exhibition, An Invitation to Dream. Curated by Jefferson Hack and photographed by Jack Davidson, the space will be populated with striking black-and-white portraits of various famous faces including Rina Sawayama, Daniel Arsham and Jeremy O. Harris.


Loewe Lamps is a Salone Di Mobile highlight
After you’ve been to see Moncler’s exhibition, next up on your list should be Loewe’s spot at the furniture fair, presenting twenty-four lamps crafted by a series of internationally renowned artists such as Genta Ishizuka, Dame Magdalene Odundo, Enrico David and Nicholas Byrne. Pushing the boundaries of materials to create unexpected interactions with light, the commissioned artists have each built a piece guided by their individual practice while keeping light and its evolving properties at the centre.



Yohji Yamamoto Pour Homme x Isamu Katayama Backlash
Yohji Yamaoto’s latest menswear collaboration with fellow Japanese brand Isamu Katayama Backlash has been hotly anticipated and it’s finally coming to stores next week. A capsule collection of nine staple pieces in characteristically monochromatic hues, the collection is modelled on musicians and actors Atsushi Yanaka, Taiji Sato, Nakamura Tatsuya, Masaya Kato and Hiroyuki Hanada in the accompanying campaign photographed by Hiro Kimura.

The collection will be available to shop exclusively in-store from April 18th. 



Kenzo and VERDY get colourful
Nigo’s last collection with Japanese visual artist VERDY for Kenzo was a strictly monochromatic affair but for the pair’s second collaboration colour is high on the agenda. Presenting a collection aptly titled Colours, bold primary hues of blue, red and yellow feature across a series of ready-to-wear pieces and Kenzo’s signature Pace trainers.


S.S. Daley’s SS24 teaser
S.S. Daley’s world is a beautiful concoction of Britishness and to tease his latest collection the designer has released a Wallace & Gromit-esque stop-motion video bringing the ‘Harold’ knit to life. Everything from cups of tea to the studio sausage dog has been rendered in miniature, however, the life-sized versions are all available to shop now so go and get your hands on a fuzzy jumper.

Samsøe Samsøe’s denim campaign
Danish brand Samsøe Samsøe have somehow mastered the art of denim and their latest campaign debuting the Blue Belief collection celebrates the arrival of new hues and low-impact production. The minimalist campaign images capture denim worn with nothing but skin or a white tank, embodying the timelessness and everyday ease of fabric and silhouette. The styles from the Blue Belief collection are crafted from more responsible materials and use 75% less water, energy, and chemicals than traditional manufacturing, so it’s good for the environment and you’ll look great – it’s a no-brainer.

Loewe’s Paula’s Ibiza fragrance drop
LOEWE Paula’s Ibiza fragrance is dropping a new summer scent just in time for temperatures to rise and the days to get even longer. Titled Cosmic EDP, the fragrance is a fruity, woody and ambery addition to the brand’s growing fragrance repertoire. The launch is accompanied by a campaign starring K-pop sensation and Global Brand Ambassador, TAEYONG photographed by Gray Sorrenti.

The fragrance will be available to shop online and in-store from April 18th. 


Issey Miyake’s A-POC ABLE is launching in London
Founded in 1998 by Issey Miyake, the brand’s A-POC ABLE branch has since revolutionised the art of clothesmaking with innovative techniques and dynamic iterations of fabric. Despite being a global sensation, A-POC ABLE will be arriving at the brand’s London flagship store on Brook Street for the first time this month and to mark the occasion limited edition pieces from the TYPE-VI Sohei Nishino project will be exclusively available to shop.

The collection will be available to shop in-store from April 26th.
