It’s the first Monday of the month, and it’s looking like a pretty mega one. Y-3 is kicking off its Spring/Summer 2024 collection, Gucci is coming to London, UGG is dropping some sun-soaked sandals, and the Grammys got us wondering why Lana Del Rey didn’t win … again. Find out what’s going on this week in your Monday Briefing below. 

Hollywood got dressed up for the Grammys

Miley Cyrus in Maison Margiela, Dua Lipa in custom Courrèges and Beyoncé in bespoke Louis Vuitton FW24 – these were just some of the standout looks from last night’s 66th Annual Grammy Awards, which saw Taylor Swift take home “Album of The Year” for Midnights, and Billie Eilish win “Song of The Year” for “What I Was Made For.” Also joining the winners list was Miley Cyrus, who won Best Pop Solo Performance with “Flowers” and SZA with “Best R&B Song” for “Snooze.” It was a belter of a night for the girlies for both hits and ‘fits (minus a couple of snubs), and we were here for it. 

Sabato De Sarno’s debut Gucci cruise show will be in London

Gucci is giving it the luxury large ones in London this summer, following the announcement of its Cruise show scheduled to take place in the UK capital on May 13. The decision is based on the intrinsic link between Gucci and London, a city that Guccio Gucci once called home during his time as a luggage porter at the Savoy. The legendary label will be returning to London to showcase its 2025 Cruise Collection, the first designed by freshly appointed Creative Director Sabato De Sarno. We can’t lie – we’re pretty gassed for this one.

For its first Spring Summer 2024 collection, adidasYohji Yamamoto-helmed sub-label, Y-3 is channelling the spirit of Contra-Natural – a world in which the duality between the synthetic and the organic produces an unexpected beauty. The first seasonal chapter fuses sophisticated tailoring, workwear, and expressive silhouettes adorned with digital scans of real flowers. The brand’s SS24 campaign is led by London’s Bugeisha Club, an international collective of women and non-binary people with mixed Asian heritage who daringly merge unbridled creative energy with athletic prowess. Head to the adidas Y-3 website to shop the collection.

A collection of daring juxtaposition, Represent’s SS24 offering merges pinstripe designs, twilled suiting, wide-leg pants, and shirting with distressed graphic jerseys, T-shirts, hoodies, and sweaters. Classic tailoring is a key component of the collection, seen in a revitalised silhouette and a host of bold colours. Graphics have been key components of Represent since the start, and for SS24, Icarus is at the forefront of its image-led applique line-up, standing as symbols of balance and a metaphor for navigating the trials of life itself. If this is a bit of you, head to the Represent website to get your hands on the collection.

UGG is looking to its Californian roots for its Spring/Summer 2024 Golden Collection. The new offering explores the feeling of adventure and self-expression to support a carefree lifestyle. Campaign shots showcase the latest silhouettes against a sun-kissed Californian backdrop, where a carefree spirit compliments UGG’s comfort-rooted footwear styles.

Songzio unveils arty “Pure Rebel Collection”

Songzio is fusing fashion and art as part of its “Pure Rebel” collection, which sees the brand’s first collaboration with internationally renowned photographer Cho Gi-Seok. The offering explores scenes of fragility, threat, order, change, disorder and rebellion through a cinematic series of artistic images. The combination of avant-garde designs and artistic photography results in a dramatic display of creative storytelling. The SS24 collection implements the House’s distinct silhouettes and designs through diverse technical drawings, crafting a collection with a unique creative philosophy, “paint on black,” where each collection originates from a black canvas.
