Vietnam-born, New York-based Peter Do is a name that's set to be a force in fashion. Aside from helming his own label, Do was recently named as Helmut Lang's newest creative director with his debut collection to be shown in September 2023. And about a month after that, Do will drop a collection with Banana Republic that's said to be "genderful ready-to-wear pieces and accessories in Peter Do’s signature neutral colour palette, brought to life in Banana Republic’s classic silhouettes". As teasers already show (although we've only seen muslin thus far), the tailoring and make are promising to be crisp and masterful.
The Banana Republic x Peter Do collection is scheduled to drop online and in select Banana Republic stores this October.
Lounging by the beach on Jumby Bay or simply enjoying the garden oasis within Le Bristol Paris, but only to realise that you forgot to pack a pair of sunnies for the trip? Fret not because the Oetker Collection group of hotels have got that sorted. Together with Persol, the group offers guests at select properties—Le Bristol Paris, Château Saint-Martin & Spa, Brenners Park-Hotel & Spa, Jumby Bay Island and Hotel La Palma—to lounge in style with sunglasses from the brand. Six styles have been curated by Persol for each property and are available for guests to pick from a bespoke caddy that also supplies polish and cloths for cleaning. Talk about hospitality.
It's now Professor Craig Green. The British fashion designer has been appointed to lead the fashion design department at the University of Applied Arts Vienna.

After a two-day takeover of Desa Potato Head in Bali this past July, Boiler Room is extending the partnership with a ten-piece summer capsule collection. Taking inspiration from the beach club's sunsets, the main graphic runs rampant throughout the entire collection of tees, a camp collar shirt, a sarong and more. The entire collection is also made from eco-conscious materials, in line with Potato Head's environmentally conscious mission.
The Boiler Room x Potato Head summer capsule collection is now available at Potato Head as well as online through Boiler Room.
After leaving her post as artistic director of Givenchy in 2020, Clare Waight Keller has been keeping a low profile. Now, the British designer is back with a new label in partnership with Uniqlo. UNIQLO:C focuses on elevating the womenswear portion of Uniqlo's LifeWear. And yes, while that means that the debut UNIQLO:C collection will be entirely womenswear, it does look to be consisting of pieces that could be easily worn by both genders (and everything in between). In an interview with Vogue, Waight Keller revealed that this first drop is one of many with an autumn 2024 collection already in the works.
The UNIQLO:C collection drops in Uniqlo stores as well as online on 15 September 2023.
