Our favorite new moments in fashion, hand-picked by our editors.
Miu Miu Holiday 23
Miu Miu, holding the title of hottest Q3 2023 brand according to Lyst Index’s list, continues to wear that crown proudly as seen in their latest Holiday collection. The new drop breathes comfortability in your own skin and charmingly depicts modernized sophistication with tactile tweed, crystal embellishment, cashmere and the perfect festive shades. Miu Miu’s Holiday 23 is defined through “An expression of beauty reconsidered for the many facets of life today,” honing in on what effortless elegance looks like in modern society. This is clearly the enlightened version of the Miu Miu girl - golden tweed jackets and pencil skirts layered over lingerie dripped in crystals, cashmere socks with silver kitten heels and cozy mules, and fur coats paired with boxers and a shimmering bag all depict the same unbothered luxurious look, and we are so here for it.
Gucci x Billie Eilish Animal-Free Horsebit 1955 Bag
Gucci is bringing back their Horsebit 1955 Bag - veganized, and in perfect partnership with Billie Eilish, known for her environmental activism and strong vegan lifestyle beyond her insanely talented voice. This reimagination of the bag is made with demetra, a leather alternative developed by Gucci and comprised of 75% plant-derived sources, showing the brand’s innovation and evolution into the future of a more sustainable and ethical fashion space. The modernized bag comes in monogram and black, and was paired with classic yet eloquent 2-piece Gucci sets in the breezy campaign. We’ve seen the fashion house remodel a few other pieces previously made from animals, now it’s time to wait and see what their next renovation will be.
Phoebe Philo’s New Label
The anticipation is finally over - Phoebe Philo is back and the first edit of her new label is here. And it’s great. As the beloved former Creative Director of Celine, Philo is known for both her understanding and liberation of women’s fashion and letting her designs speak for themselves. Her latest A1 edit delivered a yin and yang of punk and feminine glamour through sexy mangled skirts, oversized feather pants and jackets, beautifully tailored coats with structured shoulders and trousers with unexpected slits extending past the backside. This quiet-ish feminine luxury grants these sassy, raw and elevated looks the ability to appear effortlessly cool within a “seasonless, continuous body of work.” Given Philo’s dedication to sustainability, she has responsibly released a much smaller than anticipated amount of pieces to successfully achieve production and demand - so make sure to grab the pieces (that aren’t already sold out) as soon as you can.
Daniel Lee for Burberry Holiday 23
Daniel Lee has just gifted us with his first Holiday Collection for Burberry’s 2023 season that feels like a festive, contemporary embodiment of classic equestrian British roots. Taking a more non-traditional approach and honing in on homewear, footwear and accessories, this collection leans more into a gift giving guide than a holiday party wardrobe. The campaign features fuzzy ducks and puppies that evoke joyous, warm and friendly imagery contrasted against pieces like armored gloves and helmets and thick, silver handbag chains. More seasonal offerings include decorated rose handbags, miniature utensils tucked inside the pocket of white and yellow check bottle warmers, fur-lined heels and bags, illustrative silk scarves and cozy gloves, socks and beanies in the perfect holiday shades. Though not a typical Holiday Collection, Lee absolutely made this work by giving Burberry a welcoming, cheery and vibrant feel while juxtaposing the fashion house’s medieval British core through both the campaign and pieces themselves.
