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 Celine’s new fragrance, Loewe’s Challengers merch and Duke + Dexter’s apparel debut. 

Pierre-Louis Mascia will present his first-ever catwalk at Pitti 106
The French designer Pierre-Louis Mascia will be joining Paul Smith and Marine Serre at Pitti Uomo 106 this June. Mascia has been a longstanding fixture at Pitti, presenting his collections there for 16 years, but for this edition, he will present a runway show for the first time. “I am very happy to present my collection in this format,” Mascia told the press. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to convey my love for beauty and to express my creative vision that encompasses nature, culture, art, and fashion. I will do my best to create something that is truly unique and surprising.”

Celine’s latest fragrance is an ode to the 60s it-girl
Last month, Celine announced the introduction of a beauty line that debuted in the FW24 collection film La Collection de l’Arc de Triomphe – an alluring ode to 60s glamour – accompanying Hedi Slimane’s Haute Parfumerie arm of the house. Continuing the designer’s foray into the seminal decade, Slimane’s latest fragrance Zouzou takes its name and inspiration from the sylph-like heroines donning mini-skirts and pixie-cropped haircuts who defined the era.


Omega is a girl’s best friend
Omega has extended its Speedmaster 38mm collection with new models in both gold and steel, each with a sparkling bezel studded with 52 diamonds and a polished crown set with a diamond. To celebrate these new models, a brand new campaign featuring Omega ambassadors Han So-hee, Liu Shishi, and Kaia Gerber has dropped.


Ferragamo takes us to the beach with their pre-fall campaign
Ferragamo has dropped their pre-fall 2024 campaign, photographed by Harley Weir. “We wanted to play with the idea of fantasy and reality,” says Creative Director Maximilian Davis in a statement, “and Harley is someone who can express something that is both very real and very magical.” Against a backdrop of Italian sculptures rendered as sandcastles, the summer wardrobe reveals itself: pieces that can seamlessly adapt between long days and even longer evenings spent on the beach.



Nadia Lee Cohen’s new shoes
It’s no secret that there’s a Western theme trending across every inch of pop culture at the minute and Nadia Lee Cohen is the latest to get in on the action. Partnering with Milanese footwear brand Paris Texas, the British photographer and filmmaker has released a limited edition series of cowboy boots, accompanied by a series of self-shot campaign images captured in the Hollywood hills.



PUMA and Ottolinger are bringing chaos
PUMA and Ottolinger have teamed up to imagine a chaotic future. Inspired by motorsport and science fiction, the new collab is conceived to give people the power for life’s adventure. Informed by the ethos of the C-Suite and imbued with robotic work ethics, this distinctive collection seamlessly combines sportswear silhouettes with futuristic contours. Optical illusion office prints and sleek metallic finishes converge across a diverse array of apparel, footwear, and accessories.


Jordss and Lady Banton front the latest Dr. Martens campaign
Dr. Martens has dropped a new campaign that is a vibrant fusion of cross-generational heritage, sound and culture, featuring visionary artist Jordss and the esteemed Lady Banton. Inspired by the energetic and inclusive ethos of the ‘blues parties’ of the 80s, the era when Dr. Martens first brought sandals to the world, the campaign sparks conversation around the spirit of freedom and creativity that defined those iconic gatherings.



Loewe’s Challengers merch drop
Aside from the steamy love triangle, riveting tennis and stellar performances from Zendaya, Josh O’Connor and Mike Faist, Luca Guadagnino’s latest blockbuster Challengers is also serving up a healthy dose of wardrobe envy. Thanks to costume designer Jonathan Anderson, you can now get in on the action because Loewe just dropped an ‘I Told Ya’ capsule of tees and sweatshirts.



Duke + Dexter’s new wardrobe 
Foot on the gas, London brand Duke + Dexter reveals their debut apparel line. Renowned for their footwear – classic loafers, mules and boat shoes modernised through graphics and silhouette – now comes a new chapter in the brand’s history.


A new beginning at Chloé
“As I begin my Chloé journey,” Chemena Kamali of Chloé says in a statement, “I have intuitively embraced the spirit and codes of the house’s history; I want to capture the soul of the Chloé woman that I feel and love.” Dubbed The Beginning Collection, this new campaign acts as a prologue to Kamali’s debut at Paris Fashion Week in February. In her own words, her tenure at Chloé will be a re-rooting, a new beginning. We are very excited!



Reebok and Botter look to football for inspiration
Reebok and Botter have teamed up for a collection that embodies the colours, energy and spirit of Caribbean Couture. Inspired by the movement of football, the collaboration celebrates the artistic approach in sports, more particularly football, creating in the campaign an unintentional choreographed dance, capturing athletes’ acrobatic movements at the beach.



Late Checkout brings the Hotel to life in their latest campaign
Late Checkout has dropped its latest campaign set in a conceptual and ever-changing hotel. Each look encompasses its own character, be they employees or guests,  who bring with them different styles and attitudes. These characters tell extravagant stories of glamour and decadence: chance encounters in hotel lobbies, a lazy Bellboy bending the rules, and an esoteric Rockstar who destroys more than he creates. The Painter, who lends his name to the collection, was meant to only stay for a couple of days but he’s been holed up in room 202 for as long as anyone remembers…



Laura Dern is Roger Vivier’s latest brand ambassador
Kicking off a campaign series spotlighting esteemed friends of the house, Laura Dern stars in the first instalment of Vivier Express: Travelling Icons.  Presented as a short film shot by creative director Gherardo Felloni, Dern takes a trip on a ‘Vivier Express’ train, travelling across the French countryside.
