From DSQUARED2’s new twin zip duffle in turquoise texture calfskin to a 60 baguette-cut diamond case watch from Roger Dubuius, MOST WANTED (pg. 22) features the ten most desired items you must have this season. In FULL BLOOM (pg. 32) Model Sang Woo Kim shows that spring’s loudest looks from Yang Li, KRISVANASSCHE, Dries Van Noten, and Raf Simons play off proportions and athletic potential for an active take on better weather cool.

NEW ARRIVALS (pg. 52) showcases Calvin Klein Jeans’ new capsule collection, #mycalvins Denim Series, British audio brand Bloc & Roc’s two-year audio assemblage, Hedi Slimane’s creative collaboration with artists Arrington de Dionyso and the late Bruce Conner, Maserati’s new Alfieri 2+2 vehicle, Whistles x Stutterheim’s Stockholm raincoat, and more. As SCENE (pg. 52) explores, as the house lights dimmed and the bass began to jump during New York Fashion Week, February’s talk of the town was not so much of the runway, but rather what occurred in the wee hours after.
