NYC launch of Michael Kors x ellesse with campaign star EmRata
Toasting to a glamorous Thursday evening, guests joined Emily Ratajkowski at Bar SixtyFive atop Rockefeller Center to raise a glass to the sporty new Michael Kors x ellesse collaboration. Available now, the line brings together the famed designer’s love for classic American sportswear codes of eras past with ellesse’s prowess in the tennis and ski clothing categories—and, naturally, the two instantly-recognizable logos sit pretty together on all pieces. Model SooJoo Park was on DJ duty for the evening, as VIPs including Jay Critch, Amelia Gray Hamlin, Priah Ferguson, Wolftyla, Young Emperors, Tina Leung, Batshseva Hay, Sai De Silva, Ezra J. William, Jessica Wang, James Turlington, and more enjoyed panoramic views of the city and a closer view of the collection.
SIR. launches first-ever genderless collection, alongside Jordan Barrett
Australian resort brand SIR. has released its first foray into the gender neutral category with a collection created in collaboration with fellow Aussie, Jordan Barrett. The label’s creative directors, Nikki Campbell and Sophie Coote, explained that the offering is rooted in their brand’s signature minimalism, intermingled with Barratt’s own versatile and easygoing style. “We share the same aesthetic and creative eye, so coming together was very natural. In a rare moment we were all in the same city, we found the perfect moment to collaborate on a deeper level,” the design duo added. The resulting line is chock full of quintessential foundational pieces, like shirting, tailored separates, and knitwear. The associated campaign was shot by Joel Palmer, and even features an appearance from Barratt’s close friend, Stella Maxwell. Shop it now!

It appears to be a good teaser too, as the three images hint at what’s to come when the entire campaign drops later this month and promises a focus on volume, lace, figure-hugging knitwear, and clean silhouettes. That’s enough to whet our appetite, anyway. Get your fix below:
