In fashion, you keep up with trends, and the headlines. In case you missed it, here’s a recap of what the world of fashion delivered this June:
Hong Kong-born singer Jackson Wang worked with Fendi to create a capsule exclusive to just 33 Fendi boutiques, one of which is located in Marina Bay Sands. This one screams loud with the FF logo, dripped all along the signature pieces such as the Baguette for men, a clutch and baseball hat. The collection is also heavy on black velvet and chenille, which takes on a formal suit and comfortable jumpers and trousers. The collection is available online starting 26 July and in certain stores from 5 August.
Reason to celebrate! The Prada Group has officially announced its intention to go fur-free starting from next year’s spring/summer collections. Until then, inventory will continue to be sold until quantities are exhausted. This new direction comes in collaboration with the Fur Free Alliance, a coalition of more than 50 animal protection organisations from over 40 countries. Co-CEO and lead creative director Miuccia Prada shares plans for the brand, “Focusing on innovative materials will allow the company to explore new boundaries of creative design while meeting the demand for ethical products.”
After thinking long and hard about what a Longchamp sneaker should be, the House has come up with a single, meticulously crafted style. Behold the chosen sneaker, trading the line between street and chic with a chunky, wedge-shaped outsole and no-tie elastic lace that’s secured with a silver-tone toggle. But wait, hold your horses (get it? Because it’s Longchamp’s symbol), one design doesn’t mean only one option is available. The signature sneakers comes in variations like a graphic black-and-white combo of python and crocodile-styled calfskin, soft blue and beige suede, and the classic all-white sneaker. You can find the sneaker exclusively at Longchamp, The Gardens.
The latest it bag (that hasn’t even hit stores yet) might just be the Tabby Top Handle collection by Coach. Based on an archival design, the structured TTH is a crafted mix of polished pebble, refined leather and snakeskin leather. Its pyramid shape makes it one of those bags that can fit more than what it looks, while it can be worn by simply held by its top handle or as a crossbody. The Tabby Top Handle Bag will be available in all Coach Malaysia stores from August 2019 onwards.
