4SDesigns Fall 2021 Menswear Collection

It reads like a fable: On the mountains of Italy’s Marche region lives a subspecies of sheep called sopravissana. Their wool is prized, used by all the most famed luxury companies in the world. Angelo Urrutia of 4Sdesigns wanted to use it to make a sneaker. The wool was knit into a sock-like upper. Then he told the factory to brush it to fluff it up like shearling. The artisans balked; only a crazy person would brush sopravissana wool. He gave them an ultimatum: “Do it or I won’t make the sneakers.” So the wool was brushed and the sneakers were produced and worn in Urrutia’s new lookbook.

Every item in Urrutia’s fall collection combines craftsmanship and ingenuity. A bouclé bomber jacket featuring a tulle overlay looks from afar like a regular men’s jacket but up close it has the beauty and intricacy of a Chanel tweed. The collection’s plaids,

From Harper’s BAZAAR

Jewelry brand Pattaraphan is known for being beloved by the Hadid sisters, which is always a good starting point for a new venture. But more than that, the brand represents designer Nok Pattaraphan and her Thai heritage. After launching in 2018 with a vision of articulating her experiences through jewelry and employing local artisans, Pattaraphan never expected to have a cult fan base only two years in.

The Bangkok-based designer finds inspiration in the exploration of the “overlooked.” Her debut collection, worn by Gigi Hadid in her Establishment NY Polaroids, was born out of the anxiety of living in an overcrowded city, perceived from an esoteric standpoint, as well as the abundance of consumption in the form of literal discarded soda tabs littering cities. In other words, Pattaraphan seeks to explore the beauty in ordinary objects.

‘Throwaway fashion is the worst imaginable concept’

Three looks from Armani Privé spring/summer 2021
Three looks from Armani Privé spring/summer 2021

The Giorgio Armani Privé show at Paris Haute Couture fashion week in January is usually a big Oscar-watch moment. The starlets on the front row (or their stylist representatives, who have now become big names in their own right) often indicate who might choose the label for the most high-stakes red carpet of the year and amidst the dozens of looks shown, a handful will next be seen on the likes of Nicole Kidman or Cate Blanchett parading in front of the flashbulbs at the Dolby Theatre.

Alas, this year the Academy Awards have been pushed back until April, but it’s certainly lovely to imagine what a fashion feast they might be for our loungewear-overdosed eyes. Especially if Mr Armani has anything to do with it. The couture collection he unveiled on Tuesday evening, in his Palazzo Orsini atelier in Milan rather

The LA-based brand has announced today that it is launching an annual prize for emerging American design talent. The Amiri Prize is open to US residents with a ready-to-wear business that is no more than three years of age. The first prize will include $100,000 and a year-long mentorship by Amiri founder and creative director Mike Amiri.

Amiri, whose namesake brand draws inspiration from LA’s counterculture scenes, established the programme with the aim of lowering the barriers to entry and help underrepresented designers break into fashion, a historically exclusive and nepotistic industry. The winner of the inaugural 2021 Amiri Prize will be selected by a panel that includes Amiri, Diesel and Y/Project creative director Glenn Martens, OTB president Renzo Rosso, celebrity stylist Karla Welch, product designer Salehe Bembury, Union Los Angeles owner Chris Gibbs and Harper’s Bazaar digital director Nikki Ogunnaike.
