Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu… world of fashion has been busy the past few weeks with new drops, new directions and new power players being named.
Here’s your Monday wrap…
Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall
Louis Vuitton is set to debut its inaugural Men’s Pre-Fall show in Hong Kong on November 30, 2023. The city, known for its captivating blend of tradition and modernity, serves as a unique backdrop for this milestone event. Hong Kong has been a vibrant crossroads of culture and commerce for centuries, bridging the East and West, making it the perfect host for Louis Vuitton’s first Men’s Pre-Fall showcase.
The relationship between Louis Vuitton and Hong Kong has deep roots, dating back to the opening of the first local store in 1979. Over the years, the brand has continued to strengthen its connection with the city through exhibitions like “A Passion for Creation” and “Time Capsule,” as well as a dedicated City Guide that offers visitors an authentic local experience.
The forthcoming Men’s Pre-Fall 2024 show will bring the city’s cultural vibrancy to life through the creative vision of Louis Vuitton’s Men’s Creative Director, Pharrell Williams.
Miu Miu Tops Lyst’s Power List
The power of midriffs and underwear as outerwear… Miu Miu continues to cast its indelible spell upon the fashion industry, sculpting a unique narrative of style and sophistication, being named the world’s hottest brand for 2023’s third quarter. It shares the podium with Spanish brand, Loewe, and their house sibling Prada who has been ranked third.
This remarkable ascent can be attributed to a symphony of factors, from Miu Miu’s spellbinding Fall 2023 campaign featuring luminaries such as Emma Corrin and Zaya Wade to the universal allure of their logo-embellished cashmere cardigan.
Holding steady in second place is Loewe, thanks in no small part to its star-studded campaigns, graced by none other than K-pop sensation Taeyong from NCT 127. Prada, Bottega Veneta, and Versace maintain their stalwart positions, anchoring the top five brands. The notable journey continues, with Jacquemus elegantly ascending to the ninth rank, Burberry’s triumphant re-entry into the top 10, and Ferragamo’s striking debut within the top 20.
Hermès Apple Watch 9
The enduring collaboration between Apple and Hermès exemplifies the fusion of luxury and state-of-the-art technology. Their partnership, which commenced in 2015, has seen the evolution of the Apple Watch Hermès through numerous iterations. Now, the arrival of the Series 9. This latest model embodies the seamless integration of their brand identities.
Continuing to honour Hermès’ equestrian legacy, the Series 9 introduces new wristband designs. The Bridon band draws inspiration from equestrian bridles, offering a sporty transformation in navy, oxblood, and crimson hues. The Toile H and Twill Jump bands showcase expert webbing weave in Classic Orange, while the Kilim band, featuring a braided letter H, is presented in rubber. The collection is further enriched with the Barénia band, crafted from resilient calfskin.
The watchface of the Apple Watch Hermès Series 9 is adorned with the Radial design, a nod to Hermès’ Cape Cod wristwatch. The latest version of the iconic collaboration is available to purchase online at Hermès now.
