Ann Demeulemeester is releasing a vinyl
For its Spring/Summer 2024 runway show, Ann Demeulemeester welcomed its new Creative Director, Stefano Gallici.

Head over to the Ann Demeulemeester website to grab your vinyl.
SKIMS is back with satin and chokers
SKIMS puts its glam on with its new Stretch Satin Collection. The Kim Kardashian-fronted campaign shows off romantic corseted sets and bodysuits. The drop is accompanied by golden pendants by Veneda Carter. Crafted with 14k gold-plated copper gemstones, the Veneda Carter jewellery adds luxury to the seductive offering. The collection is now available for purchase on the SKIMS website.
Winter is kicking off with Moncler Grenoble
For Fall/Winter 2023, Moncler Grenoble brings us style without compromising functionality. Specifically designed with winter sports in mind, the offering boasts GORE-TEX on ski puffers and trousers, as well as water repellent and thermoregulated elements to keep you warm and dry. To accompany its new campaign and collection launch, Moncler Grenoble is opening its very first flagship store in St. Moritz. The space was designed for an après ski wind down, embracing the brand’s mountain DNA. Head over to the Italian brand‘s website to shop the new Moncler Grenoble collection.
Avirex USA x Trapstar London is the collab beyond the big pond
A cross-Atlantic collaboration, Trapstar London and Avirex USA have linked up for a capsule collection. Doubling down on its icon statuses, Avirex USA x Trapstar London has also released a campaign featuring rapper ROB49 wearing hero double-branded jackets. ROB49 also appears in the promotional video for this collab, alongside Florida rapper, Lil Meech. The collaborative collection also includes hooded and crewneck jumpers, t-shirts, and headwear, featuring the US flag-inspired logo and the signature Trapstar ‘T.’ Keep an eye out for Avirex USA’s website, as the collection is set to drop on December 17.
Dr. Martens goes tactical for Spring/Summer 2024
The Dr. Martens shoe has become an icon of the London music scene, but this season the footwear company is pushing the boundaries further than ever, with a motto that ‘innovation is deviance.” This deviant mindset takes form as a 14XX series, comprising three different silhouettes as part of the Beta Pack. Textural and layered, the 14XX embraces a rebellious spirit, while innovating the classic Dr. Martens look. If this sounds like a bit of you, head here to grab a pair.
A.P.C. is releasing its Pre-Spring 2024 collection
A.P.C. takes it back to its musical roots, specifically Debbie Harry of Blondie and Lou Reed, to inform its Pre-Spring 2024 collection. With a slight ‘70s edge, the collection offers high-waisted denim jeans, miniskirts, trench coats, corduroy shirts, and faux leather jackets, in a series of muted and colourful tones. The A.P.C. Pre-Spring 2024 collection is now up for grabs online.
Ksubi pays homage to Juice WRLD
For its second collaboration with Juice Wrld 999, the foundation set up by the rapper’s mother after his untimely death, Ksubi takes inspiration from Juice WRLD’s musical legacy. Bringing graphic elements to denim pieces, the collection offers eighteen pieces, including a varsity-style jacket, tees, and cargo trousers, nodding to the rapper’s rebellious nature. The Ksubi x Juice Wrld 999 2.0 collection drops today at Ksubi’s Chicago store, and will be made available online in January.
Southside drops Gimme Da Lite
The GRAMMY-nominated producer and artist, Southside, has just released the second single off his highly-anticipated album. Titled “Gimme Da Lite,” the single features Lil Yachty, captured by Zhamak Fullad’s creative vision in the song’s accompanying music video. The trap-style track may have missed the Spotify Wrapped 2023 deadline, but we’re sure to see it pop up on next year’s rankings.
Vintage Threads x MONÉ is giving us reworked goodies
The European Vintage Threads is tapping Monca-based MONÉ for a reworked collaborative project. Adding a touch of Fall/Winter style to MONÉ’s summery aesthetic, the collection offers puffers, cargo trousers, and technical bags. To celebrate the link up, Vintage Threads and MONÉ have hosted a pop-up where visitors could purchase a piece. If you missed the pop-up, head here to secure a piece.
