Boiler Room isn’t only known for its banging roster of DJs and eventful gigs that follow, but also for its dedicated community. For Spring/Summer 2024, it’s that very community that Boiler Room is paying homage to, with self-referential graphics that read “no posers” and “stay hydrated,” key mottos for hardcore ravers. If this sounds like a bit of you, head over to Boiler Room’s website to cop a piece. 

Chet Lo turns to porn for inspiration

The London-based designer Chet Lo is getting raunchier by the minute, and we’re so here for it. His latest campaign title says it all, being “HAAM4 SAP1 SALTY: PORNOGRAPHIC: DIRTY.” Ancient Chinese erotic art and the Japanese artform of Shunga are summoned up in the PDA-heavy imagery, exploring sexuality in all its forms, dressed in Lo’s classic spikey garments, of course. Fantasy meets fashion in this campaign, empowered by all things Lo grew up thinking was taboo, in a celebration of freedom.

First introduced during the Summer 2024 men’s collection by Kim Jones, the Dior Charm bag merges the Creative Director’s utilitarian approach to fashion and the Maison’s historic and enduring style. The atelier’s commitment to high-craftsmanship is clearly proved through the laser-created cutouts seen on the bag’s leather, where the silver buckle adds that distinguishable Dior signing. The Dior charm is now available for purchase, in a grey, black, and cognac colourway. 

Dr. Martens x Rick Owens has a second drop coming

First released last month, this collab builds on Rick’s signature glunge (grunge-glamour) aesthetic, further pushed with this new drop. The two new styles are a 1460 Jumbo Lace, exaggerated in size, and the 1918 boot, with dramatic metallic eyelets, both finished off with Rick’s recognizable lacing. Both new pairs are now available on Dr. Martens’ website and Rick Owens’ website.
