Martine Rose teams up with Selfridges for FW23 “Wobble” collection
Martine Rose is a name on everyone’s radar, thanks to its pioneering menswear collections season after season. For FW23, it has teamed up with Selfridges to launch a range of exclusive “Wobble” products. Wobble T-Shirts come in grey marl, black and rave-ready fluoro green, and Wobble track pants and hoodies arrive in grey marl. Set designer Polly Philp has designed the pop-up to replicate the FW23 Pitti Uomo runway show, channelling the anthemic sounds of Italo house, which heavily influenced the collection. The exclusive items and FW23 collection will be available to shop from September 14.
Nicholas Daley and G.H. Bass have teamed up to modernise the classic Horsebit loafer
London-based menswear designer Nicholas Daley has teamed up with G.H. Bass to give the classic Horsebit loafer a makeover. Crafted from a blend of suede, embossed croc and burnished leather for a two-tone effect, the shoes feature a nickel horse-bit ornament and brushed polished finish. A winner of the 2022 BFC Designer Fashion Fund, the Nicholas Daley G.H. Bass loafers are the perfect canvas for Daley’s unique designs, influenced by wider cultural moments. Head to the Nicholas Daley webstore to get your hands on a pair.
Bottega Veneta opens a new Paris Flagship
Bottega Veneta unveiled its new Paris flagship store on September 25, the first store under the creative direction of Matthieu Blazy. The two story space will be located on 12 Avenue Montaigne, combining Italian craftsmanship with a modernist sensibility as it welcomes visitors on an imaginative journey through the past, present and worldwide future. The store features bespoke wood and glass hanging rails, hand-cast by Venetian artisans, as well as wool carpets and leather seating. The store will launch alongside the complete Winter 23 collection and will house all Bottega Veneta product verticals.
DKNY reimagines its iconic logo in its “Heart of NY” capsule
DKNY’s latest collection serves as a love letter to New York for its latest capsule collection. “The Heart of NY” is an invitation to experience the essence of New York, reimagining the urban aesthetics of DKNY’s DNA by drawing on a range of influences from streetwear and sport-inspired pieces for women. Among the stand-out details are utility vests, quilt-stitched outerwear, and playful takes on the band’s logos and patterns.
WOOD WOOD channels the energy of the club into its “Heaven Out Here” collection
For FW23, WOOD WOOD has looked to the sense of community nightlife fosters, where solace is found in the presence of others. Tailoring is subverted through a combination of tradition and Y2K influences, where we see asymmetrical cuts, wrap-around finishes, and contrast stitching on blazers, waistcoats and pants. For the womenswear offering, graphics depicting hedonistic nights on the dancefloor are printed onto T-shirts, hoodies and cut-out dresses. Longline coats feature removable nylon layers, working alongside a bustier top and dress in an acid green hue to complete the collection.
PUMA heads to London to celebrate the beautiful game
In honour of the PUMA Palermo, a shoe which quickly gained a cult following amongst football casuals upon its 1978 release, the sportswear brand is teaming up with the UK’s oldest deli. In honour of the Sicilian city which gave the shoe its name, PUMA is taking over Terroni of Clerkenwell, transforming it into Deli Palermo, serving up complimentary drinks and a slice of Italy in the heart of London. As part of the event, three of the UK’s most rated secondhand sellers are setting up shop at the event, including Ollie Evans (Too Hot), Pascale Eliza with her vintage Italian pieces, and Hudain Momoniat of Ruder Than The Rest. Deli Palermo opens to the public on September 28 from 6pm-9pm at Terroni of Clerkenwell, EC1 5DL.

Arriving in the OG white and black colourway, reflective rope laces work with visible air units to provide contrast.
