We first wrote about this collaboration back in December, 2017 when it was announced and cannot believe it has taken this long for designer-of-the-moment Virgil Abloh’s collaboration with Swedish behemoth IKEA to get to market. 
Sometimes, all you need is a little inexpensive pick me up to feel better.

The ninth biennial Charman Prize opened last Friday in the main gallery of the Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art with 107 Bermuda-based artists working in a variety of media on the theme ‘Where Fate Leads Us’. 

There is something about the medium of chocolate that seems to inspire the most whimsical designs. Couple this with a forward-thinking mandate and you get Future Chocolate by Jisun Kim. 


The second drop of the sacai x Nike running apparel collection and new colours of the Blazer Mid will be released globally today online and in store at Dover Street Market, sacai Selfridges, sacai Le Bon Marche and other select retailers through an electronic ticket raffle system.

Peek-a-boo pieces.


The Aaren Kulor silicone watch collection by Skagen has been giving Swatch a run for their money in terms of fun.


We have never been able to use in-ear headphones with much success. They are often uncomfortable and unwieldy, even the wireless ones. Nor do we want to look like we are walking around with twigs or broken Q-Tips sticking out of our ears, therefore we were immediately interested in the look of the Human Headphones’ wireless, over ear design.


We are wrapping up what seemed like an unusually quiet fashion month with a look at Nicolas Ghesquière’s collection for Louis Vuitton which brought the Paris shows - and Fashion Month - to a close.


At first glance, the ill-fitting sweaters seemed like an anomaly, but once it became evident that what Miuccia Prada is touting this season is resourcefulness, sustainability and a rejection of excess, it all made sense. 

Valentino presented its Spring 2020 collection at Les Invalides, and Pierpaolo Piccioli opened the show with a mini collection of dramatic all-white looks. Here, he used the humble shirt as the guiding influence and the emphasis was on the shape and volume of the clothing.


Many of the usual Thom Browne tropes were featured here. Seersucker fabric? Yes. Trompe-d'oeil? On practically every outfit. Towering platform shoes? Sure. Impeccable tailoring? Of course. But because of the way Browne chooses to dissect and recombine these elements you most certainly could never call his collections stale.


Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski at Hermès mined that House's origins as the provider of equestrian leather goods for this collection of utilitarian pieces done mostly in exquisite leathers with metal detailing. 

Elie Saab’s collection for Spring 2020 radiated a fierceness that was only reinforced by the regal turbans and majestic Afro hairstyles worn by the models fashion at the show which took place at the Pavillon Ledoyen. 

Fashion is obsessed at the moment with sustainability and the effect of the industry on the environment. Noir Kei Ninomiya offered a visually stunning and elegant take on the subject.


There is a real move towards clothes that are stylish and comfortable; the modern woman prefers not to be trussed and encumbered and Christian Wijnants has taken her desires to heart. 

Rochas showed modern clothes in pretty, colour-blocked fabrics at the Palais de Chailot with views of the Eiffel Tower.

Such opulence. A secret collaboration by Dries Van Noten and Christian Lacroix made this one of the most talked about shows of the week.
 

Straw, raffia, hessian - there were a lot of these textures in this collection which evoked a rustic simplicity that belied the craftsmanship and luxury the production of these pieces really entailed.
