Everything you’re after,
all in one place


Motifs maketh the brand. The Cotton Wreath of Denim Tears - started by one-in-a-zillion polymath Tremaine Emory - is as powerful as it gets, a symbol of the project's commitment to telling the story of Black cotton farmers. For their new Denim Tears Rhinestone Capsule - available exclusively at Dover Street Market from June 28 - Emory embellishes pieces with the visual and hundreds of hand-applied rhinestones. Entirely cotton, the capsule stylishly continues Denim Tears' impact-led thread.

Monochrome, do one! This summer, we’re all about mood-boosting, poppy colour, and it seems like Ray-Ban is on a similar tip. The sunglasses giant has just launched the ColorBlock Collection, reimagining the classic Wayfarer style in a cocktail of premixed can tones. The shades feature a selection of transparent frames to switch around and the iconic insignia on the arms, ready to be taken for a spin during the brand’s series of Summer Sessions featuring Self Esteem, Nia Archives and more. The ColorBlock Collection: all it’s missing is “u”. Or something like that – anyway, shop the full capsule on Ray-Ban.com.

For their latest in a special line of sustainable collections, Acne Studios has just released Repurposed Season 7 & 8. Here, nothing goes to waste, with a full collection making the most of excess materials from previous seasons and culminating in wickedly cool jeans with pro-planet Earth scribbles eco-printed across them (“don’t fxxx with my world”), oversized hoodies and t-shirts coming in an oh-so earthy palette. Go on, do your bit – and look good while doing it.

With the sun (just about) poking out, it’s time to bag yourself a decent pair of sunnies, you specksy lot. Luckily, NYC brand Hood by Air has joined arms with sunglass supremos, Gentle Monster, on a stellar new collection taking influence from the darkened corners of the city’s greatest and most subversive raves. They’ll shield you from the UVs, hide any summertime sins the morning after, and leave you with plenty of specs appeal. (Alright, alright, we’ll stop the terrible puns).

The ever-expanding universe of beauty and skincare can feel a little overwhelming at times, but fear not: help is at hand! Browns, the London-based, multi-brand boutique known for its astute curatorial eye, is launching an IRL and digital beauty hall like no other. Browns Beauty prides itself on a cult edit: in other words, a hand-picked selection of hero products from established and emerging brands alike. Using personal beauty rituals – no matter how big, or small – as their starting point, each season Browns Beauty will celebrate a new theme which will run alongside an exciting programme of in-store residencies by both leading beauty experts and members of the Browns Beauty Community. There is much to look forward to, starting with two new purpose built beauty spaces in their Central and East London stores. Until you visit, dive into our edit of glosses, shadows, oils and tinctures.
