Disney for Adults
Here’s an example of a childhood fantasy come true: a limited-edition capsule collection inspired by Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast,” designed by Christopher Kane, who, like many children of the ’90s, grew up loving the cartoon flick. Timed to coincide with Friday’s release of the live-action remake starring Emma Watson, the ready-to-wear pieces and accessories rework some of the film’s most memorable imagery — T-shirts emblazoned with roses, teacup and saucer charms, and frocks fit for a princess — to surprisingly sophisticated and luxurious effect. How’s that for a completely adult spin on a childhood classic?
Put Feminine Charms to Use
Who says fashion is shallow? The Alison Lou jewelry maker Alison Chemla is doing her part to help further a cause dear to her heart: On Thursday, she will release a capsule collection of dainty hoop earrings and pendants adorned with the symbol for women, with plans to donate 30 percent of the proceeds to Planned Parenthood. “I think it’s more important than ever to help them continue to do hard work for the health of women everywhere,” Ms. Chemla said. And if it also boosts your jewelry style game, even better.
Toes That Twinkle
Vans and Opening Ceremony are big fans of teaming up with other labels. Over the years, each company has released capsules with an array of companies. So naturally, when they got together, they knew just how to knock it out of the park. Every month, Vans will release a capsule collection designed for Opening Ceremony. The newest? The glitter pack, a line of classic skate sneakers in allover glitter.
Tees From a Web Star
Monogram, founded in 2016 by the industry vets and married couple Jeff Halmos (formerly of Shipley & Halmos) and Lisa Mayock (formerly of Vena Cava), makes the kind of cool T-shirts we fantasize about finding at flea markets. For their first collaboration, the couple tapped Leandra Medine of Man Repeller, a digital force to be reckoned with, to design T-shirts that reflect the label’s ethos. “Jeff and I created Monogram to empower women to use their voice,” Ms. Mayock said. “Leandra embodies this idea so well by using fashion to articulate her point of view.” Here’s to more fearless dressing!
