Goodbye, British summer – we hardly knew ye. But never mind, Apron Records are giving us one last knees-up with their latest capsule collection. Since Steven Julien established the label back in 2012, he has offered only the best in music of Black origin: from jazz and electronic to hip-hop and all the way back again. Made in the US and finished in London, Apron Records’ latest drop includes quality embroidered baseball caps and heavy cotton tees emblazoned with various iterations of the record label’s logo. So treat yourself! Summer’s pretty much over, but there’s still a few festivals knocking about, at least.
Remixed, reimagined, reinvented! Ahluwalia is back with a limited edition drop of re-designed signature pieces from the label’s AW21 collection, Traces. After three years, the London-based brand wants to show that design has no expiry date – that we can fall in love with key pieces all over again – in a sustainable fashion, obviously. So feast your eyes, and wallets, on Ahluwalia’s denim, track and graphic pieces brought to life all over again.
The heatwave might have subsided, but there's still life in this summer yet. Nightclubs have reopened their doors for the first time in 18 months, and we're ready to put our best fits forward. And bold ones at that. Ride the tie-dye wave wearing Levi's X Grateful Dead's colourful collection, go wild in Ganni's lemon satin tiger shirt, look fancy in Aries' Sacred Vulva Hawaian shirt, or stay cool in a low-key longsleeve from Browns X KLOSS' merch series designed in collaboration with founder Alec Maxwell's creative friends. Wherever you're going, be sure to go big, go bold, or go back into self-isolation at home.
In Johannesburg, Capetown, Durban and beyond, the Ebumnandini crew is much-loved because they’ve thrown the coolest parties. Core member Francesco Mbele also runs Franasonic – a deliciously retro multimedia project that has inspired bright and brash clothing. The new longsleeve T-shirt design “Black Women Fighting Apartheid Were the First Punks” was inspired by the 1956 Women’s March in Pretoria. 10% of proceeds will be donated to the Sonke Gender Justice organisation.

We all know how temperamental the weather is. One minute you’re basking in the sunshine, the next you’re sheltering from a thunderstorm. Most days you’re thinking: ‘What in the world should I wear?’ Well, fear not. Michael Kors is here to pique your interest with a collection of luxurious yet laidback activewear to make your wardrobe transition from summer to autumn a little more seamless.
Whether you’re lucky enough to be jet-setting around the world or just hurtling across the city, #MKGO was designed with travel in mind. (The clue’s in the name!) And this season the American label is setting the tone with a selection of optic orange and tasty chocolate prints. Delicious.
Shop chic rib-knit sweaters, joggers that ooze everyday comfort and bags guaranteed to turn heads. Whatever the weather, these pieces will make sure you’re prepared and looking good.
Ok, so it’s hot outside. Like, really hot. Whether you’re WFH, in the office or on staycation right now, we’re probably experiencing shared dilemmas: sweating all our makeup off and struggling to beat that mid-afternoon slump. After months of lamenting the gloomy weather, it’s no surprise we’re ill-prepared for such a scorcher. But fear not, THE FACE has put together this handy guide to making sure you can keep cool and hydrated during the heatwave. You know you’ll miss it when it’s gone – and remember, SPF is king!
The sun is shining, the weather is sweet and MCM have got bags of monogrammed leather and silk travel accessories to see you through the summer months. There’s satin slippers (fancy!), a suitably spacious weekend bag, and a swish AirPods case finished with 24kt gold hardware. Staycation, or far-flung destination (here’s hoping), we suggest you dress up for the occasion.
