PUMA’s iconic Puma Palermo makes its return
In a return teased by none other than Dua Lipa, PUMA’s brand ambassador, the Palermo OG is back just in time for the summer. With low-top, sporty sneakers quickly becoming an essential for any warm-weather fit, the Palermo is pretty much set to become a contender for the shoe of the summer. Its football inspired DNA and vibrant colour scheme, with two additional colourways just dropped, makes the Palermo the perfect sneaker for your European summer adventures. Find the sneaker at PUMA’s flagship locations and online at the brand’s website.
Trans+ Pride took to the streets of London
Trans+ Pride took over London this weekend, with 25,000 people in attendance. In the fifth annual Trans+ Pride that’s taken place in London, the march featured hand-painted posters and banners bringing awareness to the ongoing cause. An array of speakers came on the mic to share their stories and say their peace, including Marsha P Johnson, the very same Black trans activist who was on the frontline of the 1969 Stonewall Riots.
TwoJeys’ “Isla Bonita” drop is giving island vibes
Titled Isla Bonita 23, which translates to “beautiful island”, TwoJeys’ latest jewellery drop is summer vibes encapsulated. Inspired by the relaxed Mediterranean lifestyle, the collection is intended to be a slice of summer that will last you all year long, using singular jewels to stand out and add a vibrant touch to any fit. Seven necklaces and one bracelet make up the collection, each adorned with natural pearls and emanels that transport you to the shade of a palm tree just by looking at them. Find the collection on Twojeys’ website.
TOVE’s Pre-Spring 2024 collection is clean af
For its latest collection, TOVE is placing a focus on relaxed formality, luxury design, and simply looking clean af. The soft, luxurious colour palette alone is giving rich aunt vibes, but complete with the fluid draping of fabrics and softly constructed silhouettes, the whole collection makes us want to sip on a glass of white wine in the Hamptons. Founded by Camille Perry and Holly Wright, TOVE has always been a brand that prioritises femininity and the aesthetic of the modern women, but its Pre-Spring 2024 collection is the ultimate display of this.
The Rapha x Shrimps collab does summer cycling essentials
Cycling apparel brand, Rapha, is partnering with fashion brand, Shrimps, for the womenswear collection of the summer – particularly for those of us who bike. Featuring wearable, durable, high-performance but casual cycling clothing, the collection attempts to bridge the gap between sportswear and fashion through vibrant patterns and colour schemes. The Tour de France might’ve just wrapped, but that doesn’t mean you need to get off the bicycle seat. Shop the collection at Rapha’s website.
Nike releases a brand “NU” Air Force 1
Nike’s latest version of its iconic Air Force Low is busy af and we love it. Named the Nike Air Force 1 Low “United in Victory”, the silhouette of the sneaker is classic; however, it’s the pattern that’s catching our eye. Repeating “N’s and “U”s cover the sneaker, spanning the tongue, leather upper, and half the sole – it’s a pretty bold look but we’re here for it.
Get ready to be “jelly” of this Telfar x Melissa collab
The ultimate Y2K summer accessory might’ve been a pair of jelly sandals, but in 2023 jelly bags are now making the rounds. In a collaboration between none other than luxury bag brand, Telfar and the owner of the iconic Melflex jelly materials, Melissa, the bag of the summer just arrived and its lavender, opaque, and wobbles. There’s also a jelly sandal available as part of the drop in the same soft purple tinge. Dropping this Thursday, you’ll be able to shop the bag on Telfar’s website from 12pm EST.
