Burberry Publishes Book Honoring the House’s Rich History

Welcome to March, arguably the month of spring fashion.We’re getting into the swing of the season with a noticeable lack of winter clothing, as we begin to swap our winter gear for something a little lighter (and arguably more floral). This month promises to be an exciting one, with Burberry’s new book, Burberry, Alicia Keys’ NYC-inspired collaboration with Moncler, and Gucci’s massive new Meatpacking store. Make sure to check back throughout the month for all the collaborations, launches, and news that you definitely don’t want to miss.

1) Burberry Honors Its Legacy With Burberry


Shop Now

Who: Burberry

What: Burberry

Where: Online via assouline.com and in Burberry and Assouline stores

Why: There are very few things in fashion that are instantly identifiable with a brand, one of the most iconic being Burberry and the trench coat. The rich history of the house, from its humble beginnings in the 1850s as a family-run company to its position as a global player today, is explored in the new book, Burberry, published by Assouline. The journey has been one of constant reinvention, risk-taking, and of course, Britishness, all captured in lush detailed illustrations that chart the journey of the quintessential British fashion brand.

2) Moncler Enlists Alicia Keys for City-Chic Capsule


Shop Now

Who: Moncler

What: Alicia Keys capsule collection

Where: Online at moncler.com and in select Moncler boutiques

Why: Besides being one of the most decorated musicians of all time, Alicia Keys embodies a no-frills kind of style and swagger that many have tried to emulate over the years. Her rise to fame in the late ’90s coincided with a fashion revolution of sorts, specifically around NYC and hip-hop, with extra-baggy silhouettes and an I-don’t-care attitude that translates to her new one-of-a-kind collaboration with Moncler. Super colorful technical jackets in bright reds, purples, and blues match with wide-leg track pants and laid-back hoodies. The star of the show is without a doubt the metallic-effect tracksuit that MC Hammer would definitely approve of.

Shop Now

Who: Gucci

What: Meatpacking store in NYC

Where: 400 West 14th Street, NYC

Why: Gucci’s world domination continues, even without the leadership of creative director Alessandro Michele. The house is expanding its footprint in the fashion capital of the USA with a truly gargantuan store in the heart of the Meatpacking District on 14th Street and 9th Avenue. Spanning two floors, the space encapsulates the metallic, futuristic feeling of the city juxtaposed with Florentine marble and muted colors that represent Italy. Everything from Gucci Beauty to high jewelry, watches, and covetable bags in all shapes and sizes can be found. Word to the wise: the dressing room mirror is the new Instagram opp. IRL shopping is back, baby!

Who: Celine

What: Tennis collection

Where: Online at celine.com

Why: Celine’s Hedi Slimane is always one step ahead of the fashion curve, with his L.A. show officially marking the return of indie sleaze, and now, his perfectly curated, high fashion take on the preppy world of tennis gear. As warmer weather begins to beckon us outside, Celine doubles down on the prep renaissance with a line of dresses and pleated skirts fit for work or play, grass-green monogram bags, small leather goods, and even the perfect racquet bag, ensuring you’ll pull up to your first match of the season in style. There are even platform tennis shoes for those who want to embody Björn Borg’s retro style without actually hitting the court.

Shop Now

Who: Brandon Blackwood

What: Footwear launch

Where: Online at brandonblackwood.com

Why: Brandon Blackwood stormed onto the accessories scene with instantly covetable and affordable handbags that are as practical as they are just damn fun. The founder is setting his sights on building a lifestyle brand, with the successful launch of outerwear last fall, and now is expanding into footwear. It’s a natural step (pun very much intended) for the accessories-heavy brand, and the range delivers on his whimsical and sexy vibe with thigh-high slouchy black boots, heeled Chelsea boots, towering platforms in bright colors, and even heeled sandals with joints (!) and taxis as heels. Because a true city girl needs some stompers to get her high—literally.

6) Jean Paul Gaultier Collaborates With Y/Project for a Second Time


Shop Now

Who: Jean Paul Gaultier

What: Second collaboration with Y/Project

Where: Online at jeanpaulgaultier.com

Why: Jean Paul Gaultier is the undisputed king of camp and irony, and also a designer who has his finger on the pulse of what’s cool today. Between his guest-designed couture shows and fresh new collections, the brand is staying in touch with its past and embracing the new vanguard. Case in point: the second iteration of his playful, cheeky collab with Y/Project. This round leans heavily into the trompe-l'œil effects that debuted on the Y/Project runway last year, with skin-grazing skirts, dresses, tops emblazoned with “tops,” body scans, and the much-beloved JPG nautical stripe top. Everything is not as it seems, and that’s just how the dynamic duo wants it.

Zara Studio



Shop Now

Who: Zara

What: Zara Studio SS23

Where: Online at zara.com

Why: For the uninitiated, Zara Studio is an elevated line from the retail conglomerate, offering a more design-heavy take on the season’s hottest trends. For SS23, the focus is on white, creams, and dusty pinks, giving ethereal, flowy country dresses a welcome cosmopolitan update. It’s as if Alexa Chung and the Virgin Suicides costume designer made a collection together, resulting in an offering of silk slip dresses, easy blouses, and macramé tops that are perfect for spring and summer nights, either at the beach or in the city.

Shop Now

Who: Valentino

What: “Unboxing Valentino” window installations

Where: In nine selects cities worldwide and online at valentino.com

Why: Creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli’s latest vision for Valentino was the SS23 show “Unboxing,” an intentional move to strip down the brand to its essence. To celebrate the arrival of the minimal yet oh-so-chic and fanciful collection, Valentino invited nine renowned stylists from around the world to create window installations in their respective city’s storefronts. The ideas ranged from classic Valentino red in New York by Law Roach to the literal unboxing pictured here in the Paris storefront, as imagined by Clément Lomellini. It’s like Christmas in March!

Shop Now

Who: FoundRae

What: Strength Exuberant Medallion in support of PEN America

Where: Online at foundrae.com through the end of the month

Why: Beth Hutchens of FoundRae believes deeply in the power of free speech and female voices, which is exactly why she released the quietly fierce lion medallion in support of PEN America, a nonprofit that works to protect open expression. To help get the word out, Hutchens hosted an intimate dinner with writer and PEN America member Cleo Wade to support voices that are being silenced, with ever-increasing censorship of important and hard-hitting stories that speak power to truth. Through the end of the month, 100 percent of proceeds from the medallion will go to PEN America, plus, through April 15, any donation over $25 made to the organization automatically enters you into a giveaway of the Solar + Lunar Strength Baby Medallion set on a necklace. “There is the overt strength a writer has when they put pen to paper to express an idea that isn’t widely accepted, or when they are willing to tell an untold story,” says Hutchens in a press release. “There is the strength and will of PEN America to stand up and protect the rights of the writers and then there is the strength of the supporters who stand in strength as witnesses and in support of these courageous acts.” Do your part.

Why: In case you missed the last two seasons of trends, prep is back—in a huge way. Tommy Hilfiger was, and is, one of the proprietors of the put-together look, defining the ’90s with his crisp, singular polos, oxford shirts, and chinos. For a 2023 update, Tommy has enlisted none other than Shawn Mendes, the internet’s favorite boyfriend and hitmaker, to collaborate on a refreshing collection of updated classics. The range pushes Tommy’s sustainability and circularity efforts to a new high, with the “Classics Reborn” idea taking roots in recycled fabrics, dyes, and ways of dressing that feel as good as they did in their heyday (even if Mendes wasn’t born then…). The collab isn’t even out yet, but we’ve got our eye on...pretty much everything.

A legendary collab, just like Bowie himself.

The pair continues their working relationship with streetwear brand Stray Rats—specifically, on a collaboration that honors the groundbreaking metal band Deftones. For the last 30 or so years, Deftones has created artful, aesthetically cutting-edge alternative music that has garnered fans who were born after the band formed, proving their lasting power. The collection is rife with mini and oversized logo tees, massive baggy pants, and miniskirts, all perfect for rocking out. We’re particularly fond of the jersey pictured here, emblazoned with the group’s iconic album art from 1997’s Around the Fur.

Schwartz is opening with pieces from her archive, plus newer designs and other items created with Williams exclusively for the big event. We’ve got our eyes on the 18k white gold diamond and Colombian emerald bib necklace with matching earrings, pictured at left. It might be time to start making that wish list.
