Valentino sends a love note through the VLoveTN Capsule Collection

Sending a message of love, the iconic VLTN logo of Valentino is given a word play, combining the graphical VLTN with the idea of LOVE in line with the recent Chinese Valentine’s Day. This ultimate love print also crosses over Valentino Garavani bags and accessories, as well as on T-shirts, shirts, sweatshirts and outerwear for both men and women. Heart shaped studs illustrate the accessories collection while fashion jewels complete the capsule collection with a dedicated selection of heart-shaped charms.

The Valentino VLoveTN Capsule Collection is now available online and in selected boutiques worldwide.

Moschino’s Teddy Bubble Shoes takes on an edgier route

Moschino Teddy Bubble Shoes

Moschino’s latest Teddy Bubble Shoes sneaker collection is Jeremy Scott’s way of combining the dynamic, sporty trends of modern life with the ironic, playful spirit of the brand’s mascot. The new iteration of the Teddy Shoes is defined by the interplay of bright colours, head-turning details and new technical additions including the memory foam sole for extra comfort, as well as the Italian-made bubble air for lightness and an edgy design. The sneakers are available in four colours — white, pink, yellow and blue.

The Teddy Bubble Shoes sneaker collection is now available at Moschino’s flagship store on Level 3, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur.

COS champions eco-sensibility for Autumn/Winter 2020

Cos AW2020

Known for its no-nonsense architectural shapes and ultra-minimalistic styles, COS now fronts an environmentally sensible collection that is imaginative and experimentative — redefining classics sustainably with responsibly sourced fabrics, plastic-spun yarn for new textiles, and recycled nylon. Zero-waste folding techniques are applied to versatile leather bags whilst other leather accessories introduce padding and protective qualities finished with durable, recycled rope.

Expect fluid tailoring in its womenswear, juxtaposed with organically draped skirts and asymmetrical necklines — layered for rich and varied textures. The menswear is still inspired by clear, modernist lines with plenty of room for creativity thanks to the introduction of lightweight silhouettes for layering. The latest season’s palette presents an intriguing mix of muted neutral colours like cream, beige and grey tones that are contrasted with electric blue, warm orange, pine green and chalky primrose.

COS Autumn/Winter 2020 drops in stores beginning October 2020.

Timberland launches Madbury for Fall/Winter 2020, its call to sustainability

Timberland enters the Fall/Winter 2020 season with a new outdoor-inspired capsule collection that beckons its call to sustainability. The key product in the collection is an all-new footwear style for the fall, dubbed the Madbury. Available for both men and women, the Madbury is a reinterpretation of the archival Timberland workwear and hiking designs, redesigned to be as suited to the city streets as it is to the wilderness. With responsible fashion playing key importance in the industry, Timberland is fronting its latest range with eco-conscious features including sustainable leather and its proprietary ReBOTL fabric made using 50 per cent recycled plastic bottles. Complementing this new footwear is a series of hoodies, tees, cargo shorts and joggers.

All products are now available online and in stores.
