If you had expected the month of July to be a slow one for fashion news, then sorry to disappoint.
You simply can’t move for the breaking headlines. But in case you’ve missed any of them, we’ve compiled a helpful, handy list of the top stories below.
1. Altuzarra is heading to Paris Fashion Week
Altuzarra is moving from your New York Fashion Week calendar, heading instead to Paris Fashion Week, starting with his Spring Summer 2018 show. This designer who was born in the city of love, is headed back to show there after being invited by La Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode. His high end fashion label specializes in women’s ready to wear clothing, and he is the latest designer to move off the New York calendar and head to Paris. Earlier this season Rodarte and Proenza Schouler opted for France too, to show on the Couture schedule, saying a temporary goodbye to the hustle and bustle of NYC.
2. Time to decorate your apartment in Gucci?
There’s no denying that Alessandro Michele is winning on all fronts at Gucci, the creative director of the heritage luxury brand, has proved his fashion nous, with hit after hit catwalk shows. And now the brand attention is being turned to interiors, to inject some of that print and pattern magic into interior decor. You can pick it up from September (don’t all rush at once).
3. You can soon get your Erdem fix at H&M
The ethereal magic of Erdem can soon be yours at a more affordable price point. H&M has just announced that its latest fashion collab is with the London based luxury womenswear label. The collection will feature the prints you’ve come to expect from Erdem’s womenswear, but it will also feature a menswear offering. Take a sneak peek at the Baz Luhrmann crafted campaign video here. It launches on November 2, let’s see if it replicates the huge success of last year’s Kenzo collab.
4. Lusting after those Christopher Kane Crocs, they can soon be yours.
Remember when Christopher Kane first sent Crocs down the runway, and the strong reactions that were felt all over social media? Well after that first collection, it seems Christopher Kane and Crocs have collaborated again to bring out a second Limited Edition, high street range of classic clogs, inspired by Christopher Kane’s pre-fall 2017 runway collection, and they only cost £64.99. Chic and affordable? Get them here.
