Calvin Klein shared a look at its most recent swimwear release in a shoppable post of fresh, grayscale youth. Featuring the volley short, with its multi-pocketed design, the label shows off its tendency towards layering with a uniquely pieced together reinvention of a classic favorite, shot by photographer Willy Vanderperre.
Donald Glover, Childish Gambino himself, attended the Gucci Cruise 2018 runway this week in pieces from the label’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection, including those coveted Ace sneakers. In an elbow-rubbing, who’s-who affair, the Alessandro Michele-designed line featured monograming, intense draping, thick layering, and every color under the sun for a collection dripping in self-awareness. Walking in the Palatine Gallery at the Palazzo Pitti, the show follows in the pop-Renaissance aesthetic first started by the house in 1982.
Kris Van Assche reconstructs a classic staple in Dior Homme‘s Fall 2017 shoe collection. Crafted from black calfskin leather and a “newave” print, the Derby shoe is a hybrid pack leader, bridging the relaxed vibe of the accompanying canvas trainer with the sophistication of the broken glass laser loafer. A perfect pair to ground any streetwear ensemble, this daring kick is not for the faint of heart.
Having just passed its 125th anniversary milestone, Florsheim took to the streets of the East Village to celebrate with a live model exhibition throughout the Manhattan locale. Culminating in an all-out feast at Out East, the downtown seafood haven, the event toasted the Chicago brand’s legacy alongside Death & Co., the NYC brooding, gothic hideout.
