LVMH Prize finalists and Samsonite and New Balance’s luggage collection: here’s what you missed in fashion this week

It's been another busy week in fashion. We started off the week at the tail-end of Salone del Mobile in Milan, and news that France will be cracking down on fast fashion brands. French designer Jacquemus welcomed two children into his and his partners' life, and branched out in to bridalwear within the same week. Louis Vuitton held their pre-Fall show, and we have Westwood's archive being sold through Christie's and now Cindy Sherman's wardrobe going up for auction too.

With all this in mind, there's still plenty that's slipped through the cracks in terms of collection launches, capsule collaborations, residencies and more. For all the fashion moments you might have missed this week, read on...
