The Paris women's ready-to-wear week scheduled from February 24 to March 3 promises to be an exciting blend of fresh talent and leading names, with debut shows by Noir and Coperni, and a rejuvenated Kenzo.
The luxury retailer has partnered with various men’s brands to celebrate the launch of menswear on 27 January. Key brands include Prada, Gucci, Loewe, Bottega Veneta, Valentino, Saint Laurent and Balenciaga.
As anticipated last week by FashionNetwork.com, the Portuguese designer, ex-creative director of Lacoste, replaces Carol Lim and Humberto Leon as creative director at LVMH-owned Kenzo, also overseeing its brand image.
Forget how many carats -- how ethical is your gold? As high-end consumers demand to know the origin of their treasures, some jewellers are ensuring they use responsibly sourced, eco-friendly or recycled gold.
Browns is tipping Celine, Bottega Veneta and Lemaire as hot picks for AW19's 'cool classics' style, and it's adding a raft of new names to its line-up, as well as backing the return of the on-trend knee-length boot.
Fast Retailing has taken a minority interest in Lemaire, the brand established by Christophe Lemaire and Sarah-Linh Tran, and is deepening the Uniqlo link with the man who is artistic director at its Paris R&D Centre.
Uniqlo said customer demand has led it to begin taking earlier-than-expected advance orders for the game wear that Roger Federer wore at Wimbledon as its new deal with the tennis champ starts to pay off.
