Considering this week’s been pretty rainy in the real world, it’s turned out to be a mad one for fashion. New releases are dropping left and right, new collections are being teased, and we’ve compiled the full list. From Beatrice Domond’s Vans takeover to the festival essential Helinox x Pendleton collab, we’re getting ready for the weather to return to higher temperatures; fingers crossed it does.

Beatrice Domond takes Vans’ skatewear back to NYC

Move out the way pastel green: khaki’s the new shade of 2023, and Beatrice Domond’s collab with Vans knows it. Called the Zahba Mid, the new sneaker takes inspiration from Beatrice’s roots skateboarding in Autumnal NYC, with its rich, green colour palette reminiscent of the leafy arches of trees over Central Park’s winding routes. The Zahba itself is a preexisting Vans silhouette, perfect for skating due to its durability and cutting edge tech. Plus the collab’s also featuring a range of apparel designed with Beatrice Domond, and a Style 53 shoe in the same khaki colour palette. Available to shop on Vans’ website now.

As always CAT footwear is designed with workwear in mind, and its blue-collar aesthetic is ever-present; however, this isn’t a style restricted to the working day.

CSM graduate, Edward Cuming’s SS24 collection is giving last one at the party and we’re here for it. Featuring glittering, sequin bralettes, vibrant hot-pink and bright orange bags, textured skirts with unfurling, ruffled ribbons, and an array of casually fitted tailored jackets and pants. Pulling on the colourways of the indie sleaze aesthetic mixed with the exciting style of the New York party girl, the collection’s making us want to hail a cab and sip a martini.
