Another week is gently coming to a close and it wasn't without some memorable fashion moments for the books. From exclusive summer capsule that have become unmistakable wardrobe essentials, to rooftop parties that take us to the skylines of New York City, here are 7 fashion moments from the week that was.
Tiffany & Co. Rooftop Party
Tiffany & Co. took us to the bright lights and rooftop delights of New York City, kicking off the holiday season with the exclusive opening of the Tiffany Rooftop Bar. Inspired by the iconic, luscious rooftop gardens of Manhattan, the new space – located sky high on top of the Maison's Pitt Street boutique – is a true garden in the sky. The rooftop will continue as a hidden oasis to enjoy an ongoing program of exciting and diverse events, celebrating a unique hospitality collaboration between Tiffany & Co. and Maurice Terzini’s iconic Bondi restaurant Icebergs; and live DJ performances.
Sister brands St. Agni and Ziah Swim have teamed up to create a capsule collection of silk intimates – a postcard straight from the French Riviera. Designed as a complimentary addition to St. Agni's Resort '22 collection, this capsule drop is an homage to delicately feminine yet versatile pieces; essential addition to a modernist’s resort wardrobe. Crafted from 100% silk; the collection features a striped oversized lounge shirt and short set, and bralettes to match in the same colour scheme.
Christian Dior has unveiled new iterations of two of its House emblems – the Lady Dior and the Dior Bobby. Crafted in two new and modern silhouettes as part of the 2022 cruise collection, we now welcome Lady D-Joy and the Dior Bobby East-West bags to the brand's covetable offering. For Lady D-Joy, Maria Grazia Chiuri reinterpreted its architectural lines in an horizontal shape; enhanced by a leather and chain shoulder strap. The Dior Bobby East-West also comes in new proportions, featuring a short, removable shoulder strap for a bold look worn cross-body, on the shoulder or by hand. Lady D-Joy can be discovered in stores from January 1, while the Dior Bobby East-West is available to shop now.
Australian designer and brand Lucy Folk has released its latest collection, titled Dusk. A salutation to the transformative nature of light on colour, the collection explores the everlasting play of light and dark – that heightens our senses and shifts our perception. Featuring apparel and jewellery that pays homage to the intoxicating allure of dusk and the transitory phases of the moon; the new offering encourages us to uncover a place of freedom in the unknown.
Melbourne-based luxury women's loungewear brand Uniek; and jewellery brand Alex Tempany have come together to create a unique capsule collection of three pieces. With imagery captured by celebrated Melbourne Fashion photographer Lauren Schulz, the collection speaks to the timelessness and design detail of Uniek’s style, and Alex’s raw and unexpected textures – with all pieces crafted in Melbourne. The hero piece is a pair of rings – signifying 2 creative forces coming together. These are flanked by an anklet and necklace, all designed to be worn everyday, alongside your existing pieces. Every piece is made by hand from pure silver and gold, meaning no two will ever be the same.
One of Australia's longest-standing fashion brands, Sportscraft, have formed a new creative partnership with Liberty. Titled The Garden Party, the limited-edition capsule collection consists of 14 looks. Featuring long and voluminous pieces made from soft, sheer fabrics designed for sun rays to filter through; clashes of floral prints are contrasted with striped ribbon accents, fagoting trim details and two-toned twist cords.
Maje Paris collaborates with Varley for new activewear collection
Parisian brand Maje Paris has teamed up with performance-fashion brand Varley for an activewear collection that will turn heads. Uniting the signature, classic French-girl style of Maje with the athleisure-first approach of Varley sees a collection that merges fashion with fitness through a retro-inspired design lens. This subtle balance between fashion and lifestyle underpins the entire capsule. Headbands, fitness socks and leggings are designed for going out, under a blazer for example, just as much as for working out.
