Kenneth Ize SS21 womenswear/menswear

Nigerian designer Kenneth Ize is the bright new star of the fashion world, since collaborating with Karl Lagerfeld’s own label for a SS21 capsule collection propelled him into the limelight. Combining Ize’s Nigerian culture with KL’s Parisian heritage creates an exciting feel of urban luxe in stripes, but with a unique depth due to the colonial background. Ize’s social conscience shines through in this interview, explaining why things happening in our modern world inspire him (lockdown!?!) and what drives him to move forward in his own lifetime. Being the first black designer to collaborate with the brand, he has surely secured himself a spot in fashion history (kennethize.net)

Sneakers Unboxed: Studio to Street at London’s Design Museum until 24 October

We are just SO keen for this exhibition to finally open to the public, after it’s been postponed to this year by you know what! Featuring the stories behind all your fave trainers (as we say in the UK), it’s all about feeding the beasts of music culture & street fashion, combining design with the latest technologies for performance, creating a modern footwear phenomenon along the way. Prepare to find out about classics such as the Chuck Taylor All Star by Converse, the Puma Disc, Reebok’s Instapump Fury, Van’s Half Cab, as well as Asics Gel Lyte III, plus many more. Designer trainers will have their stories unveiled as well, so we’re more pumped than we thought we were…(designmuseum.org)

Fendi AW21 menswear collection ‘New Normal’ feat. artwork by Brit-comic & cultural icon Noel Fielding

Hot off the press, we’re not quite ready to view the autumn/winter collection for this year, but boy, do we want it already! The whole neon idea is right up our street and upon finding out that Noel Fielding’s artwork featured in the prints for jackets and coats (he redid the FENDI logo as well), we were massively excited to see the show. His somewhat psychedelic artwork looked absolutely perfect to jump start life again, after some seriously drab times. Spot on…we think! (fendi.com)
