New Mini-Collection Of Scarfs Inspired By Raf Simons’ Debut Dior Collection
Design power house Christian Dior is extending the lives of those gorgeous flowered walls that comprised the backdrop to Raf Simons’ impeccable haute couture debut for the French design house. A collection of five silk scarfs, each with a different flower pattern inspired by those walls, is launching this week. The scarf prints mimic the flowers by which they were inspired, yet they don’t look overly frilly. They are more abstract, lending to Simons’ minimalist aesthetic.
Alexander Wang Samsung Collaboration To Debut Today
The much anticipated collaboration between Alexander Wang and Samsung is launching today. Months ago, the designer was tapped to create a limited edition crowdsourced bag for Samsung, dubbed the Alexander Wang Wallie gym sack. This month, the bag will go on sale online and in stores in “key markets” around the world, benefitting charity program Art Start. The Wallie features a grey and black print on a drawstring lambskin backpack. At the beginning of the project, Wang asked friends, stylists and photographers to create images – illustrations, patterns, or photos – using their Samsung smartphones. The designer then boiled the images down, creating a “collectively inspired” print for the bag.
Tiffany & Co. To Debut Updated Atlas Collection
Tiffany & Co. has big plans for its Atlas collection. Started in 1995, the collection is inspired by the Greek god of the same name. Tiffany & Co. will be unveiling its updated Atlas collection during New York Fashion Week with the help of Karen Elson and fashion bloggers Aimee Song, Jessica Stein, and Chiara Ferragni. Steeped in mystery, Tiffany & Co. will black out their flagship 5th Avenue windows – except for a #TiffanyAtlas decal – on Sept. 6. The next day, the jewelry company will unveil part of the window, so passersby can glimpse the collection. The windows will be completely uncovered by Sept. 10, and Elson and the bloggers will be at the flagship store, sharing their styling advice for the collection.
