FENDI Fall/ Winter 2019/20
Karl Lagerfeld’s last collection for Fendi celebrated the late designer’s 54 years of dedication and creations with the Italian fashion house, including his signature high-collared button-up shirt. The ‘Karligraphy’, Lagerfeld’s 1981 rendition of the FF logo monogram, returns in the form of tulle bodysuits and laser cut outerwear.

"Kaia Gerber in a beautiful creation"
Chanel Fall/ Winter 2019/20
This season, Virginie Viard (who’s now Karl’s successor) transformed the Grand Palais in Paris into a peaceful mountain village on a beautiful winter day. The collection displayed elements of masculinity and femininity, where suits and wide-leg trousers are worn underneath coats. Of course, classic patterns such as houndstooth, tartan and big check motifs were combined to form timeless outfits.

"Liu Yifei as Emporio Armani’s new Asian brand ambassador"
THE ONE TO HONOUR
Emporio Armani has recently announced that Liu Yifei is now the brand ambassador for Asia. She was first launched into the global spotlight when Disney broke the news that the Chinese actress will be starring as the leading character for the live-action adaptation of Mulan. Keep your eyes peeled as she leads the charge for #AsianRepresent in the label’s Fall/Winter 2019 campaign.

Good grief! Everyone’s most-loved beagle character now comes in a phone case. Put a smile on someone’s face and add this to cart to gift it to a friend!
"Nike made news when their Oxford Street store debuted a large-sized mannequin"
After body-positivity made its rounds on social media, curvy girls are getting their representation beyond the Insta sphere. Advertising campaigns have taken the real-girl route (peek Monki’s new underwear campaign if you can), big girls have walked the runways, and now, brickand-mortar stores are living this dream. Brands are taking note, and using larger-than-usual mannequins in stores. In May, Nike displayed plussized mannequins at its UK flagship store, and the same was seen at Rihanna’s Fenty label pop-up store in New York City. Now that real bodies are more visible, we wonder what 2020 holds.
Fenty is loving the curves and so should you!
"Coach Signature C Troupe Tote"
On the subject of representation, there’s so much to love about Coach’s Fall 2019 campaign, which features brand ambassadors like actor Michael B Jordan and model-multi-hyphenate Kiko Mizuhara. There are also new additions to the Coach family which include Yara Shahidi, Jemima Kirke, Lolo Zouaï, and Miles Heizer. The campaign was shot in iconic locations around New York, where the brand was founded, putting the spotlight on the house’s newest bags for the season, such as the Troupe — a classy and polished tote perfect for both work and a night out.
Kiko Mizuhara is actually our girlcrush dreams
