For his latest collaborative effort, Virgil Abloh pairs Off-White with French swimwear brand Vilebrequin. Together the two offer five new swimsuit styles for Summer 2019.

Fashion designer Virgil Abloh’s label Off-White has always been known for its streetwear-focused pieces (hoodies, oversized T-shirts, sweatshirts and the like), but it has also dabbled in beachwear recently, albeit a relatively small selection seen in its Spring-Summer 2019 line-up for men. To expand the selection further and provide even more options for all, they have decided to team up with renowned swimwear brand Vilebrequin for a 5-piece capsule collection.

Vilebrequin, the French swimwear label is known for its luxurious trunks, cut to be both comfortable and flattering; here, they’re utilized by Off-White as a canvas upon which to express Abloh’s signature visual style.

The collection comes in colours and prints that’s very much in line with Off-White’s brand identity. Take the Moorise Arrows for example, which features the signature arrow logo, coming in either a Black or White version, while the Towel Diagonal comes with black and white stripes all over for a cool touch.

But if you prefer a pop of colour, go for the Moorise ‘Off’ Chartreuse which comes in a bright neon yellow, or opt for a chic floral print as seen in the Moorise All Over Flowers. Each swimsuit features an elasticated waistband, a zippered back pocket, a paperclip zipper pull, and co-branded tags.

Ariana Grande is the new face of Givenchy

It’s true. The fashion industry is constantly in a whirlwind of changes and staying relevant is quite a challenge. However, if a fashion house has undergone new creative direction and managed to gain and secure some high profiled figures as friends, then there’s no way to go but up. And that’s what Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller did.

It is with great excitement that French Maison Givenchy reveals its new face – a strong independent woman of refreshing character and style: the multi-talented Ariana Grande.

The only woman to lead the creative reigns at Givenchy has garnered immense success since her debut- especially afterdressing the Duchess of Sussex for her wedding and for several occasions after that. Before she came on board in 2017, Riccardo Tisci was at the helm and some of his biggest muses included Beyoncé, Naomi Campbell, Madonna and Kim Kardashian, to name a few. The French fashion house has a long history of collaborating with the world’s biggest celebrities. Founder Hubert de Givenchy was responsible for many of Audrey Hepburn’s most famous looks.

And whilst Keller was not one to make bold risks through her visual campaigns, unlike Tisci, she officially ended that streak over the weekend as she announced the newest face of Givenchy. On Friday, the French Maison announced that Ariana Grande is the newest face to join the Givenchy family and will make her official debut with a full campaign due for the Fall season.

I am so proud to be the new face of Givenchy. It is a House I have forever admired and to now be part of that family is such an honour. I love this clothing and the confidence and joy it brings to the people wearing it. Not only is the clothing timeless and beautiful but I’m proud to work with a brand that makes people feel celebrated for who they are, and unapologetic about whatever they want to be.

Ariane Grande

The full Givenchy Fall-Winter 2019 campaign starring the pop star will be unveiled in July. We’ll keep you all updated when the Ariana Grande for Givenchy FW19 campaign officially rolls out. Stay tuned!

Must have: Louis Vuitton’s new monogrammed lipstick case

2019_02_louis-vuitton-lipstick-case-release-date-5.jpg

Well this is chic with a capital-C. Louis Vuitton has reimagined the ultimate beauty accessory for modern women. Inspired by makeup and jewelry cases of the 1920s, the French Maison has debuted a monogram lipstick case in two neutral colorways.

After launching a collection of travel leather cases for their perfume last year, the latest object of desire by Louis Vuitton will keep your beauty products safe, or at least stylish.

After launching a collection of travel leather cases for their perfume last year, and the news that we’ll be getting some LV wireless earpods, we weren’t surprised the luxury French fashion house went back to the drawing board and came up with a lipstick case.

We all know about Louis Vuitton’s longstanding tradition of creating fancy travel objects, but the latest monogrammed accessory from the French house has us floored. The French Maison is launching a monogrammed bullet case inspired by 1920s-style jewellery holders, the monogrammed bullet case will come in two colorways: classic chocolate with gold metal casing and light tan with silver accents, with details in brass gold or silver finish with the addition of the ‘LV’ monogram at the very top of the case.

What’s cool is each case can hold up to two lipsticks but to be totally honest, if you can fit anything else in there – mints, hair clips, some cash – it’s gotta be done. No judgments…

It fits up to two lipsticks and secures with a lock. The best part of all is that it comes with a chain so you can wear it as a long necklace, a crossbody, or even link it to your purse as an accessory. The latest object of desire by Louis Vuitton will keep your beauty products safe, or at least stylish.

Even your lipsticks could be dressed in Louis Vuitton now. The price for the lipstick case is USD$1,390 and they’re expected to drop on 22 February. Looks like our beauty and accessories game will be strong this season. Come in the beautiful world of Louis Vuitton.

Lady Gaga made waves in Paris with Hedi Slimane’s first bag for Celine, and now, that piece has been officially introduced as the 16. This will be the first bag launched at the revamped French Maison Celine. The bag in question is the 16 bag, which according to the press release was what Hedi Slimane designed on his very first day of work.

Taking inspiration from Celine’s archive bags, flaunting a sleek and curvaceous profile, the 16 boasts elements of some of Celine’s most historic bags as it features a ’60s-inspired top handle, cropped flap as well as rounded and belted details. The numeral name derives from the location of the maison’s Parisian headquarters and atelier in a 17th-century mansion at 16 Rue Vivienne

Composed out of the finest and most luxe leathers, the 16 will be available in three sizes and in a wide variety of colors beginning November 12. Pricing has not been revealed yet. For more info, head over to Celine’s website.
