In the latest from Carhartt WIP, summer has arrived in the form of its SS24 womenswear collection. Entitled “Soft Focus,” and shot in the outskirts of Paris by Léa Ceheivi, the campaign is shot in memory of hazy summer evenings spent lounging in soft jersey sweatshirts and pants pulled over sun-warmed skin. The collection itself is relaxed and summer-ready, filled with essential loungewear pieces as well as loose-fit denim work pants, lightweight boxer shirts, and much more, depicted being worn in the ordinary, everyday, intimate moments we fill our long summers with, spend relaxing with friends, connecting with family, and refreshing our mindsets. If you’re keen on a summer that sounds something like this, hit up Carhartt WIP’s website or head in store to find the collection.

Perfumer H, the luxury brand known for its elevated range of self-proclaimed “unconventional fragrances,” has just dropped a new fragrance it describes as being “fresh with possibility”: Dandelion. Derived from the wildflower steeped in mysticism, recognised for its mystical, fairy-like appearance with a halo of light, floating seeds – the dandelion itself is youthful, fresh, joyful, and free. Inspired by a memory from founder Lyn Harris’ childhood, spending long afternoons outdoors, blowing the seeds from the top of the plant’s green stalk, Perfumer H’s Dandelion fragrance intends to capture this feeling of light, sweet nostalgia, with a blend of lemon, orange flower and, mandarin, heightened by the clarity of green leaf. The perfect soft and romantic fragrance for Spring, Perfumer H’s Dandelion dropped yesterday in store and online.

ADWOA x Trapstar drop a capsule collection

ADWOA and Trapstar are coming together to release an exclusive, limited edition capsule collection that blends the UK cultural awareness that Trapstar’s become known for and the graphic, stone washed aesthetic of ADWOA. Merging the unique styles of each brand, the new capsule draws from each of the labels effortlessly, creating something wholly new yet still grounded in the streetwear style their fans already know and love. For example, the new collaboration looks to the past thirteen years Trapstar’s been dominating streetwear, taking inspiration from its iconic “T” logo and typography as well as its place in UK rap. On the other hand, newcomer and rising level ADWOA, founded by Dagye, sees its blend of strong silhouettes with graphic motifs embedded in the new drop. Hit up Trapstar’s website from today to shop the collab.

As always, Givenchy utilises the highest quality materials for its collection, using these to showcase the House’s art of tailoring know-how and display its refined ability to create flawlessly tailored pieces.
