In fashion, you keep up with trends, and the headlines.
In case you missed it, here’s a recap of what the world of fashion delivered this February:
Salvatore Ferragamo launched a virtual tour of its historical archive
Where, how and why did one of the most famous brands in the world begin? You can sit on your couch, dressed in Salvatore Ferragamo or otherwise, and take a virtual tour of Ferragamo’s own historical archive. The tour reveals an accumulation of documents, patents and prototypes of shoes and fashion, Salvatore Ferragamo boutiques, and the Sustainable Thinking exhibition. Guided virtual tours and special webinars are offered too. Add this to your watchlist.
Coach featured an oversized Pillow Tabby (and JLo) in a new campaign
This huge bag won’t fly as a carry-on, which is just fine while we stay put for now — and it’s just a prop used for fun in Coach‘s latest campaign. Debuting the Pillow Tabby, Juergon Teller photographs friends of the brand including Jennifer Lopez, Paloma Elsesser and Quincy. The Pillow Tabby is a shoulder bag with a pillow-like silhoutte and soft Napa leather. It comes in colours ranging from pink to chalk. Gotta have it? You can shop Coach online with home delivery on their website.
Capri Holdings supports diversity in fashion with the Capri Foundation
Capri Holdings, the parent company of Versace, Jimmy Choo and Michael Kors, has officially formed The Capri Holdings Foundation for the Advancement of Diversity in Fashion. With it, the company has pledged $20 million (approximately RM80 million) to efforts in support of inclusion and equality in the fashion industry. The foundation plans to work with high schools and colleges to create opportunities in fashion for underrepresented communities, through on-campus recruitment, mentorship and scholarship programs.
Levi’s collaborates with Pokemon for a fun new collection
Two names that need no introduction: Levi’s and Pokémon. The two have come together for a 90’s-like collection inspired by the very first season of the original Pokémon animated series. Designs are varied and include classic denim pieces, tees, fleece, and accessoriesthat of course, feature Pikachu. Other characters aren’t left out from the collection — there’s even a Misty Short and Misty Tank to pay homage to the character’s iconic outfit. Ash Ketchum’s famous trucker hat? Got it.
Louis Vuitton is raising funds for children with UNICEF
Louis Vuitton continues to work for its #MAKEAPROMISE campaign, pledging donations to UNICEF to support vulnerable children around the world.
