CELINE launches an accessories collection for dogs
There’s nothing more chic than a fashionable furry friend (no, not that kind of “furry” friend), and CELINE knows this all too well. Just in time for the Holiday season, CELINE has launched a new range of dog accessories, originally designed by Hedi Slimane for his dog Elvis and crafted from luxury leather and the House’s iconic Triomphe canvas. Elvis fronts the campaign, which is shot by Slimane, alongside Police (H.R.H. Caroline of Hanover’s dog) and Eloïse (H.R.H. Alexandra of Hanover’s dog). The collection is available to shop via the CELINE website and in worldwide boutiques.
Concepts and Birkenstock celebrate 10 years
Concepts and Birkenstock have a collaborative history that spans over 10 years. For the most recent chapter, the two brands have looked to Miami and Art Deco, reimagining the movement by using jubilant materials and colour on the iconic Birkenstock Arizona. The style is finished with a long-haired cowhide in four colours: pink, mauve, lime green, and faded orange. The Concepts x Birkenstock Arizona is available to shop now at Birkenstock Miami, the 1774 online store, both EU and US stores and on the Concepts website.
IIUVO unveils debut knitwear capsule
London-based contemporary fragrance house IIUVO is releasing a debut knitwear collection comprising a cashmere blanket, a cashmere intarsia pullover, and a waffle intarsia knitted hat alongside a Black Rave Hoodie. IIUVO explores the nuances of scent through a combination of music and visuals, creating a lasting multi-sensory experience. Now, the brand is looking to assist wearers outside of fragrance through the launch of its clothing line. The collection serves as a prelude to the Rave Eau de Parfum, which is set to launch in 2024 and will be available via the IIUVO website on December 12.
Haeckels highlights the impact of overconsumption
This year, it is estimated the UK will use 227,000 miles of wrapping paper, with residents sending around 114,000 tonnes of plastic packaging to landfill instead of being recycled. For 2023, natural skincare and wild fragrance company Haeckels is raising awareness of the issue by creating an installation in Margate constructed from shopping trolleys piled high into a Christmas tree. Plus, Haeckels will be donating 10% of its sales to the Margate Independent Food Bank, helping support positive causes whilst maintaining the holiday spirit. Find Haeckels’ full gifting range on its website here.
RIMOWA debuts a new regenerated nylon collection
When it comes to luxury luggage, RIMOWA is up there with the best. Now, the brand is introducing a new range of bags crafted from sustainably made nylon with its heritage as a signature focus. The new product range is titled the “Signature Collection,” nodding to the brand’s storied roots in the city of Köln. The new offering sees the application of the brand’s monogram featured on the nylon exterior of the collection whilst continuing the House’s long lineage of product innovation and craftsmanship. If this sounds like a bit of you, the RIMOWA “Signature Collection” is available to shop via the brand’s website.
Satisfy Running is getting you ready for winter

Carhartt WIP launches its Spring/Summer 2024 Pre-Collection
Carhartt WIP has launched its Spring/Summer 2024 Pre-Collection, which features archetypal silhouettes, including hickory stripe denim and polycotton structures. Classic Carhartt WIP items such as the workwear-rooted Active Jacket in Dearborn Canvas appear in both an “aged” and “rinsed” finish, with the latter offering a rugged, “worn-in” appearance. Stonewash denim items include a trucker jacket and a wrap-around skirt for women. If you like the sound of this, the latest offering is available in Carhartt WIP stores and online.

MACHINE-B is back
MACHINE-B, the archive link-up between contemporary vintage brand Byronesque and London-based concept store MACHINE-A, is back for a third instalment. Titled “The Reissue Series: As FOUR Bags,” it begins with the iconic 2000s design collective threeASFOUR, to reissue the iconic Circle Bag that first appeared when they were As FOUR. This marks the first time the four original designers have worked together since 2005.
