In an exclusive partnership with MatchesFashion, Jil Sander launches an exclusive Spring Summer capsule collection for men and women. For this collaboration, Co-creative directors of Jil Sander, Lucie and Luke Meier wanted to create the everyday uniform that can transition from day to night. The P.M. double-faced cashmere cape is a cape, coat and scarf all wrapped in one. The minimalistic lines and construction paired with a trapeze silhouette is flattering on any body shape while the armhole slits allow for just enough peek through of inner layer sleeves. This piece from the “everyday eveningwear” collection is a closet staple that is so sleek and simple, it makes for a versatile piece to easily return to every season. — Dara Chau (DC), Digital Editor
With Milan Fashion Week over, I have to say, Fendi’s Autumn 2020 collection was a standout show in my opinion. It marks Silvia Venturini’s second time at the helm of the house’s womenswear collection since Karl Lagerfeld’s passing, and it has proved again that she has truly made the brand her own. Among a bevy of luxe accessories, the Chaos x Fendi AirPods case calls my name. Showcased on a utility belt, the AirPods case arrives in a shiny gold casing with Fendi’s iconic “FF” monogram logo sitting perfectly in the middle. No word on how much it will retail for yet, but I know that it will elevate a whole look right away while keeping my tech toys secure. — Austin Miao (AC), Social Media Manager
Gentle Monster explores the endless creative possibilities with its new MY MARS campaign — an expression of a new perspective of how eyewear can be reimagined. For its first episode, London-based artist Matthew Stone was enlisted as its first designer collaboration for the series. Of the six piece collection, Ringa is the pair which caught my eye. The lenses are fitted in a metal frame with Gentle Monster’s signature corner detailing and are held together by a single bar at the top and discreet logo on the temples. Looking forward to hiding behind these come sunnier days. — DC
I’m always on the hunt for another bracelet to add to my ever-growing stack. That’s why when Louis Vuitton unveiled its new Silver Lockit bracelet designed by Virgil Abloh in collaboration with UNICEF’s #MAKEAPROMISE campaign, I knew it was only a matter of time before it joined my wrist candy collection. The design sees inspiration from the tumbler lock created by Georges Vuitton back in 1890 to protect customers’ belongings. The Silver Lockit was chosen as a symbol to represent the promise of helping children at risk. The #MAKEAPROMISE campaign commits to raising funds for UNICEF, supporting some of the most at-risk children around the world including Syrian refugees and host communities in Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, and Turkey. By purchasing the Silver Lockit, customers can support the cause along with those affected by recent natural disasters. — AM

Chanel’s J12 has gone through a few revamps since its first launch in 2000. This year, to commemorate its 20th anniversary, another three versions are to be released at Baselworld (J12 Paradoxe, J12 Paradoxe Diamonds and J12 X-Ray). The sleek black or white ceramic original gets a modern update with its J12 Paradoxe Diamonds edition, in two-thirds black ceramic and one third of its bezel and dial in baguette-cut diamonds with 12 diamond indicators, and cabochon crown. The simplicity of this timepiece is iconic, and with this new adaptation, it speaks right to my love for all thing black and all things sparkly. — (DC)
OUAI has unveiled its new line of haircare products arriving in three formulas that provide different results for all hair types. “Fine,” “Medium” and “Thick,” the shampoo and conditioner combos make for the perfect blend to further enhance and nourish your hair. On a daily basis, I use a pomade to style my hair, so that requires daily washing to prevent product clogging my pores. So finding the perfect shampoo and conditioner can be a challenge. With the new OUAI collection, I’d try the “Thick” option, it will cleanse and hydrate thanks to the shea butter, and it also contains avocado oil which creates stronger, healthier hair follicles. — AM
