Top stories of the week (15-19 November)

by Maje Pérez-Ramos

 

  1. The wave of collaborations between brands is merrily going on: first, Net-a-porter announced this week the launch of a capsule collection exclusively designed by LOEWE for them. The clothes and accesorios in it stay true to the values and aesthetics of the Spanish brand but with a much more commercial approach. Later in the week, an unexpected series of Supreme jackets designed by Italian brand Missoni appeared  (you can see them  in the Supreme IG account and buy online at their website). The Missoni spirit is easy to spot in the knitting techniques, the colors and, of course, the classic zigzags.
  2. Shein faces scandal this week: some exclusive suppliers of the Chinese fast-fashion brand were accused of labour abuses. You can read more details about it in this piece written by Nigel Taylor for Fashion Network.
  3. And, finally, we say goodbye with the spectacular Louis Vuitton fashion show that took place in Shanghai on Wednesday. Nicolás Ghesquière presented (again) the Women’s  RTW SS-22 collection, slightly tweaked to please the asian customers. In case you are wondering why recently the big Maisons are presenting the same collections in different locations in the world, this very interesting article written by Dominique Muret for Fashion Network will explain you the reason.

Happy Weekend!
