Kenzo SS21 by Filipe Oliveira Baptista



Kenzo ss21

One of the best shows I saw for SS21 was Felipe Oliveira Baptista’s Kenzo collection. Inspired by beekeepers and their utilitarian outfits, the show reflected the social distanced ‘Contagion’ times with incredible headgear and hazmat-style all-encasing outfits fashioned from classic Kenzo florals.

I have a bit of a thing for reveal-conceal headgear, so the hats in particular were my standouts. But the whole show video is gorgeous – do watch! Tragically, it’s just been announced that Kenzo is letting Oliveria Baptista go after only two years at the LVMH-owned brand. Hopefully he’ll get snapped up soon…

Bode menswear AW21



Bode AW21

Fashion week is officially all year long now. We’ve just seen another spurt of shows – from Celine, Gucci and Bottega Veneta (they had an event in a club in Berlin, while the rest of the city’s in a strict lockdown, and allegedly hired Soho House for the afterparty, kicking out existing residents – not cool!) – while other brands are doing smaller scale ‘activations’ and releasing their look books.

I’m very much into Bode at the moment and its unique way of telling stories through textiles. These Bode AW21 looks have the nostalgic charm of early Alessandro Michele for Gucci mixed with a Wes Anderson naivety without going full-on costume. It feels more real to me.

Highlights: everything about this red jacket (above), especially the hardware fastening, the quilted pyjama-esque combo, the crewelwork embroidery and the vintage map print shirt. According to Vogue, even though it’s ‘AW21’, the collection arrives in stores this month.

Spring sandals on my radar, Mari Giudicelli’s new Bardot and Oasis flats. I’m also eyeing her woven Urca clog and Ilana woven Mary Jane. Come on summer…!

UPDATE: Damn, the woven Mary Janes are selling out everywhere, but there are a few sizes at Garmentory here*. And these embossed ‘croc’ leathers are still available (and marked down)… (more…)

The Birkenstock X Toogood collab has landed and it’s a good indication of the way the newly luxed-up Birkenstock could go, following its acquisition by L Catterton.

It’s a full fashion and lifestyle collection, featuring an oversize split-side hoodie*, jumbo shorts*, some great quilted separates* and these felted Forager sandals. Homeware launches in the summer, including the Birkenstock cork-based bed which is available to order from 1774.com. (more…)
