Burberry scores by tapping Eberechi Eze and Phil Foden

Fashion news of the week: Plus, Umbro turns 100, Gucci celebrates the everyday man, Coperni and Puma join forces again, and LN-CCTV is here.

At this stage, Burberry and football go hand-in-hand. After all, the heritage brand solidified its footie credentials when Bukayo Saka and Son Heung-min fronted the campaign for its SS24 collection earlier this year. It makes sense, then, that Burbs would link up with more star players for an exclusive series ahead of the Euros. This time around, Manchester City’s Phil Foden and Crystal Palace player Eberechi Eze get in front of the camera for a set of portraits, alongside videos of them discussing the beautiful game.

Fashion is important to me, and I’m so excited to be a part of this moment with Burberry,” said Foden of the partnership. It was amazing to be able to shoot in my hometown of Stockport and to work with this iconic British brand.”

Eze was equally enthusiastic about the union – particularly as it’s a continuation of his budding relationship with Daniel Lee’s Burberry, having already partnered with the luxury brand via The Eze Foundation, a charity that supports sixth-form students with work placements. They’ve supported myself and my foundation before, helping my community and inspiring the next generation with career experience and education, which we will continue to build,” he said. It’s a special moment for me and my family.” Pass the ball and pay it forward.

Jude Bellingham strips down for SKIMS

In other footie news, at approximately 2pm on Tuesday, Skims and Real Madrid player Jude Bellingham sent the internet into a frenzy when pictures of the topless midfielder sporting the brand’s latest line of cotton boxers dropped online. Kim and co have a knack for tapping the hottest athletes in the game, but until now, Skims has mostly stuck to Stateside talent. This foray into football, however, was perfectly timed: just last week, the West Midlands-born player was selected to play in the Euros, alongside Burbs’ faves Foden and Eze.

But back to that steamy campaign. If there’s one thing that unites the internet, it’s thirst tweets. Gotta give Kimberley her 10s for the Jude Bellingham skims campaign,” said one X user, while another said: Jude Bellingham is the new face of SKIMS, and bloody hell does he look good.” Out now, the latest line of boxers will likely only be around for a brief (sorry) time, so get to checking out.

Greg Ross and LN-CCTV have their eyes on you

LA-based designer Greg Ross, who lent his creative and styling talents to Yeezy, has set his sights on Dalston, specifically LN-CC, launching a campaign with the East London store around the concept of voyeurism. Peruse pictures of LN-CC staff out and about in Ross’s garments, comprising exaggerated athleisure, raw-hem trousers and hoodies all emblazoned with the brand’s blue star motif. The best way to describe the pairing according to the Dalston team? A security camera campaign for THE new kid on the block – could it be more LN-CC?!” What’s that line about Big Brother..?

Saul Nash SS25 is utilitarian-core

Saul – never predictable – Nash has taken his affinity for technical garments and crafted an everyday uniform for SS25. His latest line, Archetypes, explores the key pieces that make up our day-to-day wardrobes with an off-kilter approach. The North East London-reared designer subverts the classic white shirt to include shoulder straps and integrates a saddle cut, while a cropped running jacket is constructed from recycled nylon. The highlight of the collection? A denim set made from lightweight Kaihara denim featuring a workwear shirt with pectoral stitching and matching indigo-denim bottoms. Oh, and there are hoodies affixed with the number 18, referencing the year 2018, when the brand was established.

Gucci AW24 is all about authenticity
