Get ready to fall in love with this season’s must-haves.
Welcome back to another edition of our Fashion Obsessions series as we approach the final week of June and embrace the summer warmth. We may still be under FMCO, but it’s never too late to plan your outfits for a tropical summer once it’s over. This week, let’s fall in love with Coach’s comfy sportswear collection, Gucci’s colourful summer or the liberating vibes of Kate Spade New York, and more.
Be sure to scroll down and mark your favourites.
Coach is back with a capsule collection worth noting down on your wishlist. Perfect for running errands, lounging and post-FMCO adventures, the collection embodies the playful elements of the House’s heritage. You’ll spot sporty retro graphics on tees, sweatshirts, leggings, nylon windbreakers and shorts in the House’s signature pattern. Go ahead and pair these separates with your staples or flaunt them from head-to-toe. Check out how your favourite content creators like Jane Lau and Zhen Ning are wearing theirs.
Gucci’s Towards the Sun takes us on a breezy adventure with its lightweight and vibrant selections. You’ll find refined RTW pieces in vivid printed caftans, striped knitwear and flared denim, while men pull off bowling sets and tunic shirts with grace this summer. In the accessories section, nothing speaks of the season better than flaunting a straw-textured bag. Besides that, signature statements from the Ophidia to Gucci Horsebit 1955 bag are reimagined in vivid hues like yellow, coral pink, and more. Not forgetting, the go-to Gucci Tennis 1977 V sneakers come in a mesh upper to keep you cool enough to survive the heat this year.
With the release of Salvatore Ferragamo‘s Let’s Dance collection, the range boasts lightness, comfort and contemporary designs to last many seasons to come. It’s easy to fall in love with the clean lines and bold hues of each pair – especially when it’s light as air – while embodying the spirit of the modern woman. From ballet flats and lace-ups to pumps and boots, you’ll find the perfect pair to match every look for every moment.

Kate Spade New York
As a flawless tribute to New York City and its creatives, the fashion house made it its mission to shine a light on local artists during these trying times. To inspire with a joyful spirit, the brand is partnering with The National Council for Mental Wellbeing to provide Mental Health First Aid training within the artistic community – how great is that? Furthermore, the iconic Spade Flower Jacquard collection took centre stage in a gorgeous green colourway – in a variety of shapes and styles – from large totes and crossbodies. Designed to make a statement with a smile, consider this one of the best staples to have in your growing collection.
The Spade Flower Jacquard collection will be available in Malaysia after FMCO.
Here’s another It bag of the season. The Balenciaga’s Le Cagole (French slang for “too much”) is back with a refreshed and unique look to the Balenciaga Classic we all love. The accessory comes in four sizes, from an over-the-shoulder sling to a larger hobo. To celebrate maximalism, the bag which is made of arena lamb is injected with flat studs, small buckles, and tasselled zipper pulls for added texture. Exuding the more-is-more attitude, pair this with your high-street and elegant ensembles for the day-to-night affair.
Following the success of Loewe Paula’s Ibiza collection, the second drop is an eye-catching take brimming with tropical flavour of dreamy RTW pieces and accessories. Ideal for a summer in the city, wardrobe staples in effortless silhouettes project a vibrant Balearic spirit. The iconic Puzzle bag and handwoven crafted bags are refreshed with Watermelon, Kiwi and Passionfruit animations. Don’t worry, Loewe has something for men too; check out the utilitarian carry-alls in colourful and free-spirited designs.
You’ll love these bags from Bvlgari’s Resort collection. With raffia as the star of the season, the Serpenti Diamond Blast sports this textured material, along with the Bvlgari Logo bag. Timeless yet practical, these bags are ideal for a summer affair, from beach days to dinner dates. What makes it so unique are the elegant touches of gold chain straps, jewel-like decor and signature Serpenti emblem. However, if you’re into totes, you’re going to love the Canvas Tote, the It bag of this season designed by Mary Katrantzou. Our pick? The Canvas Tote, of course.
