Milan Men’s Fashion has just kickstarted and we’re about to get flooded with collections and celeb footage. But before we get into that, it’s still time for your Friday Roundup. This week, supermodel Kate Moss is back with her iconic Diet Coke campaign for a second season. We’ve also got a new Byredo scent and Dr. Martens coming up with another special event to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the anti-mainstream Jadon boot.

DIET COKE BY KATE MOSS IS BACK FOR SEASON 2

Kate Moss is an icon and becoming Diet Coke’s creative director back in 2022 could very well be the most iconic thing she’s done. Back together for a second summer in a row, the continuation of the “Diet Coke by Kate Moss, Do What You Love” series was inspired by the drink’s own archives and the regular break from work at 11:30AM . Speaking on the new campaign, Moss said “it’s all about a pause to love what you love and indulge yourself in that moment, without taking yourself too seriously”.
