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.”
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.
Rounding Up the Classics from Tony Hawk’s Go-to Skate Brand
When it comes to heritage skate brands, there’s nothing more affirming than a co-sign from a skate legend—in the case of Vans, it’s their recently announced brand partnership with Tony Hawk. Hawk’s first skate shoes in 1978 were Vans, proof that the label has been building legacies for over half a century. If any brand has earned the right to refer to their shoes as OG, Classic, or Authentic, it’s Vans, and it’s all here for you, too.
Vans Red OG Authentic LX Sneakers
When you think of Vans, it’s hard not to think of these classic lows in the most classic color: chill red.
Vans Off-White OG Classic Slip-On LX Sneakers
Damn Daniel or not, spring means it’s a good time to be back at it again with the white vans.
Vans Black OG Old Skool LX Sneakers
Black feels best worn slightly faded, making suede its perfect partner. The OG Old Skool weathers with every step you take, a wearable record of wherever you’re walking.
Vans Yellow and Green OG Sk8 Hi LX Sneakers
The Sk8 Hi means a taller shoe and upping ankle protection, too. In mustard-toned suede and canvas, these OGs are a splash of sunny yellow without being too in-your-face.
Vans Green Hairy Suede OG Era LX Sneakers
Suede is leather’s softer cousin—the higher the nap the fuzzier it becomes. These algae-blue Hairy OG lows make the classic cushy, upping texture without compromising ease of wear.
Italian designer Gianni Versace launched his eponymous collection in 1978, capturing a confident and powerful attitude in his Mediterranean-informed menswear designs. Now under the creative direction of sister Donatella Versace, the line’s bold and masculine aesthetic continues to evolve. Fine tailoring and opulent, subculture-inspired styling make a powerful statement alongside Roman-inspired graphic prints. The signature Medusa head appears on everything from Italian leather sneakers and backpacks to streetwear and gold chain necklaces. T-shirts and hoodies in Baroque prints capture the urban vibe beloved by fans of the Versace house.
Keeping in line with the unfaltering vision of its late namesake, the Sarah Burton-helmed incarnation of the Alexander McQueen label furthers a diaristic approach to design that is both impenetrable and alluring. Preserving the element of spectacle that is a mainstay of the label’s modus operandi, McQueen translate temporal and geographical specificity into stately womenswear, with regal accents striking a balance against delicate reinterpretations of the label’s recognizable morbid signifiers.
In spite of shouldering the inherent tragedy embedded in the legacy that it is carrying on, an unbridled romanticism nonetheless looms over the McQueen line, culling from the natural world while abating its fatalistic leanings. Coalescing a deep-seated knowledge of bespoke British tailoring with the workmanship of a French haute couture atelier and the impeccable finish of Italian manufacturing, the Alexander McQueen label’s uncompromising dedication to satisfying its muse continues to foster emotionally rousing results.
Radical conceptual designer Martin Margiela founded his namesake couture house in 1988 and quickly established himself at the forefront of the Belgian fashion avant-garde. The design team that currently heads the Maison has maintained the tradition of anonymity its founder established in his career-long refusal to grant interview or public appearances. Women's line MM6 presents a more casual, street-inspired take on the Maison's intellectual approach to luxury. Sportswear, clever graphic prints, sneakers, and geometric forms are always represented in its unexpected takes on urban basics.
Husband-and-wife duo Nicolaj and Ditte Reffstrup know that sustainable fashion is an oxymoron, which is why Danish label Ganni doesn’t purport to be that which it’s not. Although operating within the context of the fashion industry, Ganni nonetheless strives to make a difference–to leave a positive mark. Fostering change through its commitment to responsibility, Ganni is driven by the challenge of constructing garments from innovative materials and upcycled fabrics, while simultaneously attempting to create quality designs that will last a lifetime. This very commitment to social responsibility, coupled with the label’s self-awareness, authenticity, and transparency has set Ganni apart and skyrocketed the former cult label to international acclaim.
Instagram it-girls have also contributed to the brand’s success through the promotion of the laid-back ‘Ganni Girl’ aesthetic: effortless, confident, and chic. Lacquered fabrics, garment-dyed denim, and a mix of animal and floral prints feature prominently across ruched skirts, mid-length dresses, oversized blazers, boxy jackets, swimwear, and accessories. Embracing a subtle 90s minimalist flare, Ganni continues to maintain its romantic yet playfully girlish appeal. With a commitment to responsibility, Ganni reveals that it is possible to be both fashion-forward and environmentally conscious–setting a strong precedent for the modern fashion industry.
