Celine SS20’s animal-printed outerwear

Outerwear is a signature of Celine — in fact, Celine is the brand when it comes to leather outerwear. At its SS20 Menswear show, we weren’t surprised to see perfect-looking leather jackets and coats down the runway but a couple of animal-printed ones in the collection. Animal prints may be an ongoing trend but according to the house, it’s not slowing down anytime soon.

Cole Haan ZERØGRAND Sneaker

A dress shoe, sneaker and a casual shoe all at once, ZERØGRAND is the newest addition to the Cole Haan brand. Its minimal and modern silhouette is designed for the next generation of professional talents who are always on a lookout for a pair that is able to keep up with their lifestyle. Built for comfort and also to last, its Stithlite technology allows maximum airflow and support. The outsole helps absorb pavement whilst providing a spring for each of your steps. The upper tongueless design helps lock in support. The best part of it all? It’s gender-neutral.

Creative Director Daniel Lee continues to impress the industry with Bottega Veneta Women’s and Men’s Pre-Spring 2020. He uses soft silhouettes and fabrics that are fluid to further define the reality of a wardrobe for contemporary life. Shapes are relaxed as they are held against the body without any tension. Pieces are also connected with the past collections; one of them is The Pouch that was introduced in Spring 2019, created from a single seamless piece of Bottega Veneta’s signature intrecciato leather.

Louis Vuitton Artycapucines Collection

The Capucines bag is one of Louis Vuitton‘s iconic designs. It’s often seen on the arms of socialites, models and celebrities across the globe — but not this one. It’s been six years since the said bag was introduced by the house and for its anniversary, six designers including Alex Israel were invited to design the bag to their hearts’ content. The collection launched yesterday, with only 300 bags per model — showcasing a melange of textures, patterns, colours and silhouettes.
