Your one-stop-shop for this week’s fashion news to know.
We know, you must feel terrible! While you’ve kept your eyes glued to your screens, poring over all the shows on the Paris schedule, you’ve yet to take the time to scratch the surface of all the other chic headlines that have populated your feeds over the past seven days. Well, thank goodness that we’re here with our grace-saving edit of this week’s most urgent fashion news! Most important of all is that it’s been a week of comebacks, with the return of some of our favourite faces (and items) to their rightful place in the spotlight. Who, you ask? That would be cheating! Read on to find out what’s in fashion.
Stilettos and sporting gear? Only in the world of Saint Laurent
“Fashions fade, style is eternal” were Yves Saint Laurent’s sage words of sartorial wisdom. You know what else is eternal? Our love for designer versions of ostensibly banal objects. Logo surfboards! Disinfectant-shaped phone covers! A Saint Laurent python basketball! The French fashion house has just released a line of objets with an Anthony Vaccarello twist in collaboration with the likes of New Era, Spalding and Zai. Think skis, snowboards, baseball caps and even sledges. And if there was ever a way to lure us from the Rue Saint-Honoré to macho sporting stadiums and racing tracks, then this would be at the behest of Anthony Vaccarello. We’ll be strapping up in our Saint Laurent stilettos, but that counts as sportswear, right?
