On the penultimate day of Milan Fashion Week, Vogue editors proceeded from the vroom-vroom of Ferrari to the va-va-voom of Dolce & Gabbana, feathered fetishwear at Ferragamo to wig-like wallets at Jil Sander. Capping off proceedings? Matthieu Blazy’s Bottega Veneta, which saw the creative director fill his show venue with towering, flowering cacti rendered in Murano glass – an appropriate choice, given that the autumn/winter 2024 collections in Milan have been something of a desert, celebrity-wise.

This season’s collection was centred on the notion of “honesty in materiality and silhouette”.

Yet another reason for the fashion industry to be grateful for the existence of Kate Moss, then, who slipped into the front row to take in Blazy’s latest offering and give the assembled paparazzi a sense of purpose. In the venue on Via Orobia – which was suffused with a nuclear orange glow and filled with the sound of piped-in dialogue from 1956’s Earth versus The Flying Saucers – the waif turned wellness mogul perched in an oversized peacoat and thigh-grazing leather boots that rendered trousers superfluous.

Kate has given Blazy’s Bottega Veneta the supermodel seal of approval before, of course, taking a turn on the runway for the creative director’s sophomore season at the house in a plaid shirt and loose jeans that were, in fact, printed leather, later starring in the label’s spring/summer 2023 campaign, which was conceived in collaboration with Italian architect Gaetano Pesce.

The palette was inspired by the colours of night and fire.

As it turns out, Blazy has had a lifelong obsession with Kate – admittedly, something that could be said of most designers, but is especially true of the 39-year-old. “Collecting her pictures became a hobby that became a sort of

Wax London’s design dialogue takes cues from its founding namesake city, offering a “patchwork of culture and ideas” floating through England’s capital. For Spring/Summer 2024, the label has chosen to spotlight the making of its U.K.-inspired garments, in a line titled “Come Together.”

In an accompanying campaign video, creative director Tom Holmes stealthily swipes quintessentially British homewares, like patterned blankets and cloths, from their proper places in a still house. Championing the brand’s hometown favorites, each taken item forms a part of the collection, as Holmes reworks their textiles into ready-to-wear from a dimly-lit workshop in the subsequent scenes.

Pointelle, crochet, seersucker, linen and embroidery define the lineup, which consists of expanded takes on the brand’s most popular silhouettes (thanks to consumer demand). The label’s Didot range grows with statement decorations like “Daisy,” “Ornate” and “Beach” embroidery, while ripstop jackets and sustainable suede trousers mark an evolution in Wax’s core wardrobe.

“We’ve taken a look through a nostalgic lens and drawn inspiration from the ’60s for shapes and silhouettes while reimagining our hero shapes with a fabric-first approach with appliqué, embroidery and jacquard fabrics taking center stage,” Holmes told Hypebeast. “This has culminated in a collection we feel brings a bit of fun and brightness to the way people dress.”

The brand utilizes Ikat hand-dyeing techniques to finish matching shorts and trousers, and subtle shirting enlists textural fabrics with pintuck detailing for a refined aesthetic. Wax’s best-selling suits are made in new linen colorways, including burnt copper, while jacket and short co-ords build on the imprint’s casual wares. Rounding out the range, Holmes tends to his ever-evolving accessories division, with new hats, socks and tote bags.

Wax London’s Spring/Summer 2024 collection, “Come Together,” is now available to shop on the brand’s webstore and in its retail outposts.

Bella Hadid is appearing on the cover of Perfect‘s Spring/Summer 2024 issue.

The 27-year-old supermodel wore only underwear for the racy shoot, which she art directed herself.

The fashion industry figure – who recently showed off her toned form in a sultry snap – had a poster over her chest and tummy while she sat on a green chair.

The sister of Bella Hadid wore her long dark hair in soft curls as she added gold earrings and had on plenty of pink blush on her cheeks and nose.

This comes after she took a break from modeling to look after her health.

The daughter of Yolanda and Mohamed Hadid had a fresh tan. 

Hadid also shared a behind-the-scenes video and photo from the shoot on her Instagram account.

In her clip, the model was seen while wearing a pair of black-and-beige shoes as she worked with her team.

The fashion industry personality also wrote a short message in her post’s caption to let her fans know that she was officially ‘back in action.’

Hadid began her modeling career during her teenage years and quickly rose to prominence within the fashion world.

However, the entrepreneur stepped away from modeling last year in order to focus on receiving treatment for Lyme disease, with which she was diagnosed in 2015.

The runway regular went on to provide her fans with periodic updates on her health in various Instagram posts.

Japan is on the cutting edge of everything as the country has a centuries-long knack for technological, culinary, and artistic innovation. It should be no surprise that some of fashion’s most inventive talents hail from the region. Interior design practices such as wabi-sabi, as well as the notion of kaizen—constant self-improvement—point to the nation’s inspiring ability to ritualize the mundane, elevating the most minute tasks or arranging an environment just to make one’s entire life better.

Brands like Comme des Garçons and Issey Miyake demonstrate Japan’s reverential approach to tailoring and construction, sharing elegant yet avant-garde garments with the world. Keep reading to discover six of the best Japanese brands.


Founded in 2011 by former Issey Miyake designers Keita Ikeuchi and Mihoko Mori, and wander is fiercely committed to presenting a refined yet rugged aesthetic, bridging the gap between thoughtful fashion and practical outdoor garments. Nestled in the heart of Shibuya, “the pleasure of playing in the mountains” serves as and wander’s North Star. Driven by the founders’ own hiking experience, the brand’s offerings are made to withstand a myriad of climates and are tested in both Japan and global locations, proving and wander’s devotion to quality.

The brand’s expert craftsmanship is demonstrated through its plethora of innovative silhouettes and keen attention to detail, delivering unparalleled technical fabrics. Using a precise pattern-cutting method, items such as the quilted diamond stitch-down hoodies and longline PRIMALOFT rip coats utilize sturdy, water and wind-resistant materials. The inimitable label is grounded in a mostly subdued color palette with a sporadic splash of color to mirror pigments found in nature.

Siblings Karisma and Kareena Kapoor are often considered the epitome of the saying ‘sisters who dress together, stay together’. The duo knows how to channel their stylish sisterhood in a way that complements their individual styles, for instance, twinning in a classic shirt + jeans combo or white ensembles at the wedding of Isha Ambani and Anant Piramal. While the elder sister loves layering, a hint of black and bling, jewellery and classic silhouettes that work with modest dressing, the younger sibling loves to exude sexiness in bold colours, plunging necklines, form-fitting clothes and as little jewellery as necessary.

For the birthday celebrations of Taimur Ali Khan, Karisma and Kareena Kapoor took on dopamine dressing in their unique ways that exemplified how trends can be adapted to personal styles. For the uninitiated, dopamine dressing refers to wearing outfits that boost the effects of the dopamine hormone. This can be accomplished by assimilating bold hues and patterns into the wardrobe (remember Karisma Kapoor’s recent AFEW dress?). While Kareena opted for a multi-coloured printed silk button-down shirt from Emilio Pucci shirt, paired with boyfriend jeans and black boots, Karisma wore the Zero Degrees Andromeda chequered blazer from Space Lines, worn over a black ensemble consisting of a pleated midi skirt and a top. The blazer featured threadwork in bright colours like red, blue yellow, and lavender for added contrast.

Though the idea of dopamine dressing has been around for a long time with works of designers like Christopher John Rogers and Indian designer Manish Arora making it their signature style on the runway using various techniques, however, the aesthetics saw its popularity in the pro-pandemic era with the world finding its footing and finding joy in dressing up while finding solace in rainbow hues as a way of expression and creativity.

London-based brand Palace is just as ready as you are for the Spring/Summer season, which before you know it has already arrived. But don’t worry, because the British imprint has it all under control and just shared its new lookbook and collection, which combines the brand’s athletic DNA and relaxed, sometimes ravish style.

The 2000s are an endless source of inspiration for everyone, which is why the Palace creative team has decided to travel back in time to get inspired and receive the necessary influences for the creation process of some garments like a series of button-up shirts with ice prints and sunsets reminiscent of old album covers.

From the Y2K aesthetic, we move on to athleisure, or sportswear, to talk about the selection of running and cycling-inspired garments on offer, some of which feature illustrations of inflated balloons accompanied by the inscription “Tour de Force”. Football, a sport loved by many and attracting thousands of fans, also has a strong influence in this line, just look at the sweatshirts with the brand’s four-star emblem and the inscription “Paláce Tecnical”.

Still sporty, but more outdoors-focused, we find the forest camouflage print on various flight suits and paired with ’90s washed jeans, biker t-shirts, crumpled shirts, and corduroy trousers. And yes, corduroy, you know what British summer is like and you know that from time to time you might need either a GORE-TEX windbreaker like the ones in the collection or any of the bucket hats or trucker hats for the sunnier days.

When and where will the first installment of Palace’s Spring/Summer 23 collection be available for purchase? From May 5th, in selected shops and online.

Saint Laurent

Shoulder pads upon shoulder pads, hoods plunging into vertiginously low necklines and an elusive air of regal suavité are the attributes employed by Anthony Vaccarello for his Saint Laurent spring/summer 2023 collection. His runway heroines become knights readying themselves for battle with leather for armour and silk for chainmail.


The esteemed status of extreme maxi bags has remained a subject of infatuation in high fashion, and Boyy has taken this romance to new heights. Its Bobby edition boasts vast pockets and buckles the width of the Nile, along with a spacious structure that could easily carry the weight of a toddler – or maybe even two.


Around 100 years ago, Coco Chanel freed women from the oppressive confines of corsets and emboldened them with trousers. Today, MONSE has created a daring convergence between the two extremes by perfectly merging function and allure with its corset trousers. They softly hug the curves of your waist while also letting sheer panels peek out beneath as you walk by – an essential instrument of modern teasing.


Balenciaga’s Cagole boots invite you to become a chivalrous knight of old while – somehow simultaneously, embarking on a journey to the boundless frontiers of space exploration. Two disparate realms united by a single pair – made from iridescent ivory arena lambskin with fastenings like thimbles –
