With Paris Fashion Week taking over our and your and everyone’s feeds, it’s been hard keeping up with everything else that’s been happening. Luckily for you, our Friday Roundup is here to keep you in the loop. This week, Miu Miu and Church’s collaboration lands at Dover Street Market London, Stone Island Marina ventures into its first ever Winter collection and Tekla ventures into footwear with Birkenstock 1774.
Goldwin is revolutionising fashion manufacturing with Spiber
The Japanese brand Goldwin and biotech company Spiber have been working on structural protein materials since 2015, and finally, the Brewed Protein™ fibres are making their worldwide debut in a collaborative FW23/24 collection. Nine pieces were released today that aim to tackle fashion’s environmental issue. The collection was based on the “Regenerative Circle,” which you can learn all about in the collaborative short film titled “Imagine, Believe, Community and Collection.”
The Church’s x Miu Miu collab is up for grabs
This is the collaboration we didn’t know we needed. Miu Miu gets a back-to-school makeover infused with Church’s’ formal heritage. The collaboration centres around two brogues, one features double silver buckle detailings and the other has perforated details throughout. Both are found in a black and brown leather iteration, now available at Dover Street Market London.
Stone Island Marina Winter 23/24 takes us back to 1920s Antarctica
Stone Island Marina gets bold and impactful for its very first Winter 23/24 drop. The collection was actually inspired by expeditions to Antarctica during the 1920s, with its icy-white and reflective outerwear. The RUBBER WAX POPLIN DOWN Jacket comes as a standout piece, with its extra padding to maximise warmth, comfort and waterproofing. The whole collection is now available for purchase online.
Vans x Dime brings back a chunky classic
An archival favourite is making its comeback in this Vans x Dime collaboration. The uber-chunky Rowley XLT reappears in its classic Navy colour, as well as a brand new Dime Birch iteration as part of Vans’ Reanimation Series. To celebrate the launch of the shoe online, Vans and Dime have also teamed up to co-curate a Paris pop up in line with Paris Fashion Week, where the shoe can also be bought.
CAT Footwear collaborates with British designer Nigel Cabourn
For their second collaboration, CAT Footwear and Nigel Cabourn stick to the basics: practicality and durability. The two collaborative designs – the UTAH ZIP and OHAMA LACE – were created to resist the harsh natural elements. The UTAH ZIP features a front zip fastening and is seen in both Black/Olive and Bison colourways while the OHAMA LACE has criss-crossing laces all around to the mudguard and arrives in Black an Olive colourways.
Peregrine introduces its Zip Pocket collection
Peregrine gets ready for the colder months to come by releasing its Zip Pocket capsule collection. The collection is created with the signature Abraham Moon Tweed and appears in three different looks: Hengrove Check, Light Grey and Navy. Fleeces, gilets and overshits are all available on the brand’s website.
Birkenstock 1774 gets homie with Tekla
The footwear brand’s special projects and collaborations line Birkenstock 1774 are linking up with the Copenhagen-based homeware brand Tekla. The collection is inspired by meditative contemplation and finding peace of mind. Tekla takes its first step into footwear with a revamped Nagoya slip-on clog and Uji sandal, as well as a line of ready-to-wear pieces, that will be dropping on October 12.
Toga Archives’ SS24 collection is “assertive” and “feminine”
Toga Archives’ SS24 offering gives us a new take on femininity. It uses traditionally feminine-associated fabrics such as ribbons and lace but twists the connotations on their heads such as by adding blue and black pigments. Pieces include tailored shirts that reveals lingerie underneath, a sleeveless blazer and tartan-printed trousers.
Y U QT just dropped a new single
The dance-electronic duo Y U QT has just dropped its new single The Way U. The infectious sound comes as part of their new upcoming EP which was announced today titled BABE?. To celebrate all these new releases, Y U QT have been keeping booked and busy, including a takeover at London’s Village Underground.
Footpatrol x KARHU get together for the third time
Footpatrol and KARHU are no stranger to each other, having collaborated twice in the past. The two join forces again to create the Fusion 2.0, a sneaker inspired by a 1980s snow boot nicknamed the Snowstar. Of course, a snow boot wouldn’t be complete without a snow suit which comes in the form of a dual-tone oversuit. All collaborative pieces will be released on September 30.
HATTON LABS drops it FW23 collection
HATTON LABS’ FW23 collection has officially dropped online and in stores, and the gender-fluid jewellery brand has come out with an accompanying campaign that showcases the pieces. Taking inspiration from old British monarchs and Jacqueline Kennedy, the collection floral-adorned belts and pearl bracelets among others.
