Moncler launches latest Genius collection with JW Anderson
Moncler has launched its most recent Genius collection with ongoing collaborator, Jonathan Anderson, with an new collection defined by upbeat escapism. Expressed through vibrant hues and naive, almost psychedelic patterns that swarm all over, entertaining the eye. The collection, Anderson’s third for Moncler Genius, strengthens the dialogue with Moncler’s functional and outdoorsy roots, and the idea of clothing meant to meet with the elements, while focusing on pattern, colour and texture. Shapes are played down but also playful, meant to be used fluidly across genders: padded parkas with leather straps; cropped blusons; zip-up jackets; padded vests; oversized jumpers; sweatshirts, hoodies and teddy fleeces; padded miniskirts and bermudas; roomy trousers.
Bevza Introduces Symbolic Earrings and Makes Donations

Despite the uncertainty, Bevza has been able to produce the earrings in Ukraine, and is pledging a percentage of all proceeds to various non-governmental organisations providing direct aid to Ukrainian people affected by the war.

Burberry collaborates with Pop Trading Company
Burberry announces a capsule collection with Pop Trading Company. A celebration of a shared connection to community and the outdoors, the Burberry & Pop Trading Company collaboration builds on the Amsterdam-based brand’s connections to global skate communities. Referencing in particular those in Japan, where skating is restricted during the day and the scene comes alive at night, the collection emphasises a sense of freedom and movement through the city after dark, with the iconic Burberry Check cast in shades of grey and blurred, while reflective elements deliver high impact in low light.
A dynamic and youthful collection, the Burberry & Pop Trading Company capsule brings together the brands’ twin passions for freedom of movement and creative exploration.
Prada Frames launches in Milan

The approach taken by Prada Frames is scientific and, at the same time, educational and informative. The symposium is curated by Formafantasma, a research and design studio based in Milan and Rotterdam, that focuses on design’s historical, political, and social implications. Formafantasma also applies a critical approach to materials and their use in production processes. In line with the progressive and increasingly significant relationship between environmental studies and all fields of knowledge and culture, Prada Frames brings together the valuable contribution of scholars and professionals, such as scientists, architects, designers, artists, activists, anthropologists and law experts.
