All you need to know about the latest drops, collabs and happenings in luxury fashion this month
We get it: It’s tough being a full-time fashionista, especially when the shifting fashion landscape ebbs and flows with fresh tidings of new drops, collabs and happenings on the daily. Let this ongoing column efface the noise and soothe out the fluff, so you’re left with only the latest and greatest that’s taking the realm of luxury fashion by storm. This month, we’re cosying up with Loro Piana and running high with a dose of On.
Get snug with Loro Piana
After a packed day, there’s perhaps no better feeling than curling up under the covers in Loro Piana’s Cocooning Collection. Cashmere and silk feature heavily across loose, care-free dresses, rompers, trousers and shorts in a variety of pretty pastel hues. Because even the hardest-hitting go-getters deserve to let loose and put comfort pride of place with an elevated set of loungewear.
Embrace Californian cool with Zegna and The Elder Statesman
If your wardrobe’s getting stuffy, look no further than Zegna’s first Oasi Cashmere project with Los Angeles-based label The Elder Statesman for a vital pop of colour. Boasting a rich myriad of shades—lilac, red, green, yellow and orange—the cashmere-clad collection also interweaves bold patterns like plaids and prints across an assortment of button-down shirts, corduroys, long shorts and trousers, along with accessories like felt bucket hats and fitted baseball caps. The collection will be made available at Zegna stores globally and the Elder Statesman’s retail channels starting from September 2023.
Perfect the sound of music with Rimowa
A delicate instrument demands an equally solid case to go with it. And who better at crafting one than Rimowa? Tapping fellow German company Gewa’s expertise in constructing stellar musical instruments and cases, Rimowa has unveiled a special, limited-edition violin case that resembles one of its own Classic luggage designs—from the distinct grooved aluminium to the two TSA-approved lock closures. Inside, it’s fitted with microfibre, a specialised neck pad system and even a hygrometer and humidifier, so you can look just as good as you play.
The Onitsuka goes rogue
The Onitsuka, Onitsuka Tiger’s dress shoe line has come up with its first capsule collection with bona fide fashionista Nick Wooster, previously the fashion director of Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman. Referencing Wooster’s military-inspired aesthetic, the drop comprises bomber jackets, T-shirts and pants armed with overt, 3D-pockets. Most notably, The Onitsuka Brogue has been transformed into mid-cut chukka boots, while the Wigurve has been turned a military green. You’ll be able to shop the drop at The Onitsuka and Onitsuka Tiger stores in Japan, the US, the UK, Italy, China and Singapore.
Look glam with Maison Margiela and Gentle Monster
Kickstarting Gentlemonster’s first collab of the year is a genderless line dreamt up by John Galliano, creative director of Maison Margiela. The collection features 11 sleek eyewear designs in distinct colourways like black, white, grey, cream and tortoiseshell. Even the packaging is a whimsical reinterpretation of the Maison’s puffy Glam Slam clutch, flaunting hand-stitched matelassé quilt details. To mark the drop, collaborative pop-ups have been held in seven cities including Seoul, New York, London and Singapore.

Run like the wind with On
In recent years, Swiss performance running brand On has gained a cult following among sports enthusiasts, earning the approval of athletes at the top of their game like Olympic gold medallist Kristian Blummenfelt. Made with Helion superfoam, its CloudTec midsole cushioning technology dramatically softens impact and enhances propulsion, so it almost feels like you’re running on, well, clouds. You can now experience all the hype for yourself at the brand’s first-ever pop-up store in Singapore at Wheelock Place.
