A MAGICAL COLLABORATION BETWEEN DISNEY AND KARL LAGERFELD

Celebrating Disney’s 100th anniversary this year, the late designer’s brand has created a special capsule collection, which will feature a hand-drawn sketch of Donald Duck by Karl himself. The long-time collaborators have come together again to create an array of outerwear, including a bomber jacket, as well as essentials. The KARL LAGERFELD x Disney 100 Years Of Wonder collection will be made available online on February 23.

CARHARTT WIP TAPS FINNEGAN TRAVERS 

The American apparel brand has turned to British photographer Finnegan Travers for its SS23 campaign. The London-based artist is known for his textured images and delicate shots, which were highlighted in this collection campaign. Shot on the beachy coast of Devon and in the hectic centre of London, the images capture Carhartt’s latest pieces, such as a branded yellow crew neck sweater and a beige cropped hooded jacket, in a satisfying atmosphere in line with the brand’s youthful aesthetic.

GLACIAL SHIVERS AT STINE GOYA

“This season, our love language is ice. Pure celebration of an endless winter” states Stine Goya of her latest collection titled “Freeze”. Inspired by Hans Christian Anderson’s Snow Queen and all things ski-related, the designer showed us an array of the warmest clothes that did not disregard style. A silver hooded puffer dress paired with leg warmers and a statement neon green faux fur coat, the Stine Goya woman is ready for Aspen.

ISSEY MIYAKE TAKES OVER GINZA

New location drop for the Japanese brand. Taking over four floors, the new store named ISSEY MIYAKE GINZA / 422 was inspired by the playfulness of the city. It is found just across the street from its 445 sibling, which is now the home of CUBE, a gallery-like space presenting the process of design, from initial ideas to production.

GERRIT JACOB’S SCUM

The proactively-titled FW23 collection by designer Gerrit Jacob explores queer aggression through its use of statement visuals. Contrasting his staple loud visuals with traditional garment-construction processes, Jacob creates a duality which is reflective of the duality between one’s self identity and the world’s perception of the wearer.

DOJA CAT CONFIRMS AN ALBUM IS SET TO DROP THIS YEAR

The rap and pop artist has confirmed the drop of her fourth album, which will be much more rap-focussed. The “Say So” artist’s last release was last year with “Vegas” for the Elvis biopic, which did show off her talent as a rap artist. Little is known about the album’s title, tracklist or possible features, but fans are already speculating what is to come, considering Doja Cat is known for teasing and leaving clues pointing towards her unreleased projects.
