Below we take a look at some of the most interest tid-bits of fashion moments from this week that might not have made it to your Instagram feed, TikTok 'For You' page, or wormed their way into conversation amongst your fashionable friends.

LVMH will be sharing its creative excellent and craftsmanship at key celebratory moments during the Olympic and Paralympic Games next year in Paris. This will include the medal design – one of the event's most iconic symbols and traditions, symbolic of an athlete's quest for victory and surpassing oneself – which iconic jewellers Chaumet will design, applying their savoir-faire built from centuries of Parisian heritage.

Chairman and chief executive officer for the group, Bernard Arnault, said the unprecedented partnership would "contribute to heightening the appeal of France around the world" and that it was "only natural that LVMH and its Maisons be part of this exceptional international event", due to their mutual "values of passion, excellence, and inclusion".

“Sports is a tremendous source of inspiration for our Maisons," Arnault said, "Which will unite creative excellence and athletic performance by contributing their savoir-faire and bold innovation to this extraordinary celebration.”
