Founded in 2016 by designers Camille Serra and Saskia Dijkstra, Amsterdam-based Extreme Cashmere celebrates longevity and universality in its cozy ready-to-wear offering. Produced in limited amounts to minimize overproduction, the label embraces a trendless, multi-season, and one-size-fits-all mentality, one well suited to its line of functional basics. Unisex and unisize, Extreme Cashmere’s ethical knitwear fuses its high-end standards with a sustainable and made-for-everyone ethos.
The label’s classic loungewear cuts, muted palettes, and flowing silhouettes—from slouchy cardigans and crewneck sweaters to floor-grazing lounge pants and dresses—democratize comfort and encourage confidence, balancing its ethical framework with thoughtful construction. Standing out as a uniquely welcoming knitwear label, Extreme Cashmere makes clothing both meant to be lived in, and meant to last.

Collina Strada SSENSE Exclusive Orange Bow Face Mask

John Eliott Five Pack Black Face Masks
For a more pragmatic approach, a five-pack in black. Keep it minimal and comfortable.
Off-White Black Diag MAsk

Among the noble metals, gold is especially coveted, its natural attributes allowing it to withstand the passage of time without tarnishing. The craft of goldsmithing involves multiple ways of working precious metals, including the fusion of gold or silver with other materials to create more resilient alloys. Embodying the ethos of their practice, classically trained goldsmiths Gerda and Nikolai Monies founded their now decade-spanning jewelry label, Monies, on another kind of union: marriage. Establishing their women’s jewelry line on the Copenhagen waterfront in 1973, the husband-and-wife duo broaden the scope of workable elements and indulge in their love of unconventional materials, from gold foil and silver leaf to acacia, horn, coconut, and ebony.
Structure and volume are skilfully considered in the making of bracelets, earrings, and necklaces that range from subtle elegance to artful statement. A history of binding disparate entities together lead Monies to collaborations with prestigious brands such as Chanel, Christian Lacroix, and Donna Karan. The Danish jewelry label proves that bringing things together opens the door for something greater because even the most precious gold is stronger in marriage.
Established in 2005, fine lingerie purveyor Kiki de Montparnasse has since grown into a global luxury fashion brand complete with exquisite underpinnings, loungewear, and accessories. Utilizing meticulous time-honored artisanship and carefully sourced materials, the label advances an aesthetic that marries timeless sensuality and modern sophistication, with a touch of innuendo. Boasting perfected cuts and alluring décolletés, the line’s selection of delectable demi-bras, bralettes, and briefs embraces an ultra-feminine vitality in embroidered tulle, romantic floral lace, and scalloped edges.
Craig Green, London-born designer and graduate of the illustrious Central Saint Martins fashion program, designs menswear with an evolving, ethereal, and emotive vision that has established him as one of the UK’s most innovative menswear designers. Challenging the status quo with gender-negating statements, Green’s ready-to-wear investigates concepts of uniform, utility and showmanship, offering textural and minimal iterations of structured jackets, diaphanous tunics, and trousers tailored with the fluidity of flowing drapery.
This year, Green debuted the first flourishes of a collaborative relationship with adidas, his largest market incursion to date. The initial styles, Green’s Kontuur I and Kontuur II, take familiar adidas silhouettes and further evolve them, as though pushing the shoe’s photonegative through the visual plane. The successive set, called the Polta Akh II, expands on this dimensional-breaching quality, splicing adidas’ classic shapes into vaporous overlays that conjure a more romantic ideal than is typically found in sneakers, what Green describes as communing with “these ghosts of the past.”
With over a decade of experience in the streetwear, music, and art industries, Been Trill co-founder and frequent Nick Knight collaborator Matthew M. Williams launched his womenswear label 1017 ALYX 9SM in 2015. Emerging in Spring/Summer 2017, the brand’s debut menswear collection rises as a collaboration with Japanese brand ‘fragment design.’ Channeling the same downtown spirit and youthful subversion that colors his women’s line, bold text and embroidered graphics round out the 1017 ALYX 9SM's collection of unconventional basics. Slim cashmere gabardine trousers and crisp button-up shirts blend seamlessly with streamlined tailoring and workwear silhouettes, while subtle details and embroidered graphics adorn supple leather trousers, utility backpacks, and the label's signature rollercoaster belt.
New York City-based brand Eckhaus Latta is the brainchild of close friends and business partners Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta, who met during their respective studies in sculpture and textile arts at Rhode Island School of Design. The duo embarked on creative and entrepreneurial pursuits following graduation, gaining experience which they would ultimately parlay into the launch of their avant-garde fashion label in 2012.
With a dynamic design process based on intuition, emotional connection, and a conceptual approach to proportion play, Eckhaus Latta’s womenswear collection seeks to resonate with a clientele whose relationship with their wardrobe is equally personal and independent of trends. Unexpected fabrics and prints are shown to their best advantage in amply-cut skirts and trousers, while multi-tonal knits and panelled blouses boasting half-sewn hems and precise cut-outs project deconstructed allure.
What Do Salvador Dali, Ottolinger, Magritte, and Faris Have In Common?
Juxtaposing elements that aren’t normally found together can produce startling effects—which is good news for jewelry. There’s no excuse not to be striking. When reality can seem skewed, it feels good to look at works of controlled chaos. We’ve rounded up our favorite offerings that feel the most surreal, with the paintings to match.
Completedworks Gold the Dishcloth of the Metropolitan Elite Earrings and Salvador Dalí’s The Persistence of Memory
A foray into the theory of relativity, or simply a painting inspired by a wheel of Camembert melting in the sun? Dalí insisted it was the latter. One of the most recognizable works from the Surrealist movement, pay homage to the decadence of diffusion with these gold dishcloth earrings. It’s all relative.
Shushu/Tong White YVMIN Edition Single Ceramic Hand Earring and René Magritte’s The Dawn of Cayenne
Consider the dichotomy of form and function, the inherent value of scale. Or just wear this earring—sometimes all you need is a hand.
Ottolinger Black Rubber Dipped Drop Earrings and Joan Miró’s The Tilled Field
Inscrutable, organic forms—a theme in Miró’s work upon moving to Paris, but also maybe manifesting in these earrings. Dip, dip, drop earrings.
Vanessa Schindler Orange Single Chain Earring and Max Ernst’s Long Live Love
These earrings conjure a graceful silhouette, in tones and strokes uncannily similar to the figures in Ernst’s work. The art object is only as real as the one who wears it.
Eamanuele Bicocchi Silver Single Key Earring and René Magritte’s La Clef des Songes
Maybe this cerebral work by Magritte is just the legend we need to interpret our strange isolation dreams—or maybe it’s better to wear the key.
With Balenciaga, Junya Watanabe, and Kiko Kostadinov
These days it’s important to feel good in whatever way you can—sometimes it’s enough just to know that flowers are growing somewhere. Even better if you can see them on your daily walk. What else feels good? Looking down at a fresh pair. Here are some suitably vibrant sneakers to catch your eye and match the spirit of spring.
Junya Watanabe Pink Buffalo London Edition Synthetic Leather Sneakers
London street style meets high fashion in a collab that seems good enough to eat—cotton candy, bubblegum, watermelon, sorbet, rosé. Just spring things.
Reebok Classics White and Blue 96 Sneakers
Blue is rare in nature. All the more reason to wear it on your shoes—just like the name says, it’s a 96 classic.
Balenciaga Yellow Triple S Sneakers
The OG ambassador of the chunky sneaker revival is back, keeping it mellow in acid yellow.
Li-Ning Beige and Pink Sunchaser Sneakers
The laces on these Sunchaser sneakers tell us that “anything is possible”—fitting, somehow.
Kiko Kostadinov Blue and Yellow Asics Edition Gel Kiril Sneakers
You can’t go wrong with a harlequin motif in two primary colors—sunny yellow and sky blue.
Converse Purple Chuck 70 High Sneakers
A lilac on foot is worth one less in the bush, unless you’re taking nothing but pictures and leaving nothing but footprints, in these pastel purple Chucks.
Imagine a distant yet imminent future: dystopic, cold, and barren -- this is the world inhabited by Post Archive Faction (PAF). Launched in 2018, the Korean menswear label unites avant-garde sportswear with futuristic outerwear, creating a fantastical collection that exists on the fringes of the fashion landscape. An ‘anti-fashion’ brand, PAF finds expression in the unconventional, the underground, and the unwanted. Despite resisting easy classification, PAF is defiantly apocalyptic: technical fabrics, reflective textiles, and transparent PVC materials meet asymmetric constructions, crinkling techniques, and paneling.
Trousers, jackets, shirts, and sweatshirts are disassembled only to be reassembled anew with PAF’s very magic lying in its ability to make the familiar foreign. Shrouded in tones of gray, black, and white, the collection embraces an aesthetic that resonates with the eerie and desolate. Defined by its unique yet calculated design language, PAF exudes dissidence.
