White Lotus favourites feature in Loewe's Fall Winter 23 campaign
Further exploring the reductionist spirit that’s currently driving its aesthetic output, LOEWE presents the Fall Winter 2023 precollection campaign: a brutal yet slightly off kilter document of the community of artists and creatives that gathers around LOEWE, each one with their personal take on life, work, and invention. Lensed by Juergen Teller, the campaign features actors, curators, singers, models: individuals of all ages and walks of life, pictured as they are, caught in staged yet spontaneous situations. The cast includes actor and director Takeshi Kitano, actresses Aubrey Plaza, Myha’la Herrold, Ruth Negga and Sonoya Mizuno, musician Dev Hynes, model Xiao Wen Ju, artists Nairy Baghramian and Koo Jeong A, actor Murray Bartlett, and curator Hans Ulrich Obrist.

“An iconic anniversary, an iconic brand, and a collaboration with their most iconic characters – there is no better way to join fans around the world in celebrating Disney’s 100th anniversary’,” said Tommy Hilfiger. “Colliding Mickey and Friends with the TOMMY HILFIGER brand DNA has been one of our most fun collaborations to date.

Louis Vuitton for UNICEF
Louis Vuitton launches the Silver Lockit Beads bracelet within the LOUIS VUITTON for UNICEF partnership. Embodied in a digital campaign by House Ambassador Chloe Grace Moretz, the new bracelet is the latest launch in the Silver Lockit collection, continuing to support children in need through the Maison’s partnership with UNICEF. Reimagined as a semi-beaded bracelet for 2023, the new Silver Lockit design is worn individually and stacked by the award-winning actress in a series of natural, outdoor portrait shots; each reflecting the casual yet versatile nature of these latest creations.
As with the previous designs, the new bracelet features the iconic miniature padlock, now set between six silver beads with three cord colour options: red, black and blue, and a fourth black cord version in titanium. Since 2016, Louis Vuitton has raised over $20 million USD for UNICEF, with new versions of the Silver Lockit launched annually to support in the ongoing raising of funds. For every Silver Lockit Beads bracelet sold, $150 is donated to UNICEF.
The new bracelet design is available now in stores globally.
Barrie announces partnership with Sofia Coppola
Barrie is delighted to announce a collaboration with director Sofia Coppola. This friendly partnership reflects Sofia Coppola’s own appreciation of Barrie’s cashmere pieces, with their mix of creativity and enduring quality. The collection, conceived by Barrie creative director Augustin Dol-Maillot, reflects Sofia’s own unique style, offering the ideal wardrobe for work, travel, and leisure.
Barrie creative director Augustin Dol-Maillot states: “I’ve always been fascinated by Sofia’s precision in terms of looks and attitude. She always finds the perfect balance between timeless pieces and a modern silhouette. The collaboration seeks to achieve this same effect by focusing on the tiny details that transform apparently simple pieces to make them timeless and desirable at the same time. I have always considered Sofia’s elegance to have that special touch which makes it relaxed and comfortable, yet so stylish. To me, this is exactly what the Barrie DNA is made of, and this collaboration is the dream opportunity to embody that.”
AGMES NYC Launches Sum of Parts collection
Designed leading up to founder and creative director Morgan Lang's wedding, where both her mom and her partner's mom were officiating the ceremony, it felt important to find a unique way to symbolize the special bond they would share.
Solomon wanted to create something that could be worn on the wedding weekend that could be shared between her mom and new mother-in-law, herself and her husband, her husband with her mom, herself and new mother-in-law, and among all four.
The Sum of Parts series comes from this intention to illustrate deep connection and love—the styles, from stud earrings, necklaces, and versatile mini brooches to adorn bouquets, hair, or attire, also allowed us to introduce the very first AGMES men's formal wear items like tie tacks and cufflinks into the collection. Each style, or Part, in this Sum of Parts series is designed as whole, beautiful, and complete on its own. Yet, when worn or shared with others, or another, a new shape and meaning, no more or less beautiful and whole than before, emerges.
