ICYMI: Gucci gets lit in a cemetery, Jackson Wang drops a Fendi song, the Yeezy 500 Super Moon Yellow to re-release
Fashion by the 'gram
1. Gucci gets lit. Quite literally
Presenting their cruise show at a Roman necropolis in the French town of Arles, Alessandro Michele's latest pastiche of the gothic and medieval couldn't have had a stage more apt. The creepy-yet-cool cemetery for a show set aside, it took place in the dark of night with live fire bordering the runway — tipping Gucci as the season's pyrotechnic force.
2. Uniqlo's next artist collaborator is...
Kaws' Brian Donnelly. A series of graphic tees for the brand's UT line has been revealed to feature Sesame Street characters Elmo, Big Bird, Ernie and more alongside the Kaws Companion, with the artist's signature crosses for eyes. To retail from 29 June.
3. Try your hand (again) at the Yeezy 500 Super Moon Yellow
Perhaps infamous as the colourway that Kanye West and Adidas initially launched as bundle with Yeezy clothing last year — to which its 700USD price tag for the sneakers, a jumper and biker shorts combined proved prohibitive for sneakerheads — is hitting retailers again and, purchasable on its own come 9 June.
4. Chinese K-pop and hip hop artist Jackson Wang releases a song and music video for Fendi
Titled 'Fendiman', backdropped by the house's headquarters, and dripping in double Fs.
5. Palm Angels to tie-up with Suicocke again for SS19
Japanese footwear brand Suicoke's outdoor sandals get a streetwise treatment one more time. Due in spring/summer 2019, your first look via Palm Angels below.
6. Louis Vuitton's cruise show in the Côte d'Azur wrapped up just before a downpour
According to The Guardian, the French maison enlisted a shaman to keep the rain at bay, who seemingly did a good job given that rain fell just shortly after the show. In matters of the collection, the Archlight sneaker gets ankle boots and over-the-knee siblings.
7. Central Saint Martins' recent BA fashion show is a mine of up-and-comers
The alma mater of designers the likes of Alexander McQueen, John Galliano and Riccardo Tisci has a rep for producing promising talent fresh off the classroom. The school's 2018 graduate show is no different.
