Is there anything Jennie can’t achieve? During the Jacquemus’s “La Casa” Cruise show, the Blackpink member has scored not one but two achievements — making her debut as a runway model and closing the show, all while donning a modern LBD, accessorised with black and white mules and the brand’s latest Le Rond Carré bag. Taking place at Casa Malaparte in Capri, a place that Simon Porte holds dear, the holiday collection celebrates fashion fundamentals with the use of plush fabrics and immaculate craftsmanship.

Sabato De Sarno has, once again, turned on his stealth mode. The Gucci creative director has remained discreet for his latest Fall/Winter 2024 campaign. Shot by David Sims, the inaugural men’s campaign sees the Italian designer stripping away all the frills, returning to the roots of fashion where essentiality takes precedence. With the pared-down approach, the core of fashion — wearability, relevancy and functionality — and freedom of interpretation become the narrative for the fashion tale told by De Sarno. Enlisting Clément Chabernaud and George Barnett, two of the leading figures in the early 2000s, the latest Gucci men’s campaign is a marriage of the past, the present and the future.

Sunwoo is now an official member of AMIRI, following his appearance at the Fall/Winter 2024 show during the Paris Fashion Week. The appointment came after the founder Mike Amiri caught up with the rapper of hit Korean boy group THE BOYZ in Seoul. Known for his remarkable rapping skill and songwriting ability, the South Korean singer perfectly captures the essence of AMIRI, where music carries significant weight in its DNA.

Jonathan Anderson turns an internet meme into reality

Jonathan Anderson has continued proving to us why he is a force of creativity. The Loewe creative director has recently created a buzz by bringing an internet meme to life. First shared by a X user called gianna rosina, the meme, showing two Zapotec Pleated tomatoes, went viral because of its uniquely awestruck appearance. Bearing a close resemblance to Loewe’s logo, the trending news caught the attention of the Loewe creative director. Shortly after, the Irish designer went on to create a similar-looking tomato clutch and posted it on his Instagram account.
