Weekend Max Mara and Lily Aldridge team up
Weekend Max Mara unveils its new Signature Collection called From Lily With Love, co-created with Lily Aldridge. The line was inspired by Aldridge’s father, Alan Aldridge, a renowned English illustrator. “His art and style! He loved three-piece suits, denim on denim, and bright fun colors and patterns – he always looked cool and timeless,” says Aldridge.
Max Mara just showed their Spring/Summer 2023 collection in Milan. Miss the show? Watch this video of highlights to catch the beautiful show inspired by the likes of Renée Perle and Eileen Gray.
Burberry finally shows in London
Burberry finally showed their Spring/Summer 2023 collection in London today after postponing due to the Queen’s death. The show featured models Bella Hadid, Stella Maxwell, Naomi Campbell, and more, and featured a front row appearance by Kanye West aka Ye.
Riccardo Tisci was inspired by the British seaside for what might be his final collection for the brand if the rumors are true. “This season, we explored a new sensuality – a consciousness of the body,” Tisci said in a statement. “I was inspired by the liberation and openness of youth, of people embracing their bodies and revealing them – a pride in themselves, who they are, their identities. Their freedom. This feels modern, this feels right, and this feels Burberry.’
Daniel Lee is the frontrunner to replace Tisci.
