A fresh take on Dior’s Book tote sees the iconic handbag imagined in sculpted leather, engraved using the Argentine-originated technique of tooling. Featuring intricate floral patterns and the iconic Christian Dior lettering across its front, the piece is available in black or brown.

Chanel Summer 2021 eyewear Courtesy of Chanel.

Get ready for time in the sun with Chanel’s latest collection of eyewear. Sunglasses are revealed in sophisticated new silhouettes like a rounded butterfly and a rectangular shape, imagined in hues of acetate that echo stones like quartz, onyx, and emerald. The house has also introduced a selection of new timeless optical frames, imagined in the same elegant palette.

Stella McCartney x Yoshitomo Nara Courtesy of Stella McCartney and Yoshitomo Nara.

Stella McCartney invited the artist Yoshitomo Nara for a collaboration part of its “Shared” collection’s Spring/Summer 2021 iteration. For the artist’s first-ever fashion collaboration, Nara helped create a capsule of wearable art designs that transcend notions of gender. The artist’s work can be seen on a range of pieces, including t-shirts, trousers, button-ups, and handbags, featuring an illustrated character and phrases like “change history” and “don’t waste another day.”

Empowerment-focused design label ADIFF revealed a new book titled Open Source Fashion Cookbook. As a play on a fashion look book, the publication centers around the idea of making ethical and sustainable fashion more accessible. Featuring a collection of instructional “recipes” for creating items from upcycled material, the book welcomes submissions from names like Zero Waste Wardrobe, Assembly, and RAEBURN. The recipes include solution-focused items selected in consideration of the circumstances of the last year, as well as basic fashion items—like a blanket jacket, a shirt dress, and a swimsuit.

B&B Italia’s 2021 outdoor collection “Borea” has us longing for summer nights spent outdoors. Designed by the house’s new Artistic Director Piero Lissoni, the weather-resistant options include furniture pieces ideal for creating a personal outdoor oasis, like fluffy couches, chairs, dining tables, chaise lounges, and more. The design brand’s most sustainable collection yet, all seat cushions have been created entirely from recycled plastic water bottles.

Albers Nesting Tables Courtesy of the Albers Foundation.

Art and design lovers gather ‘round for Albers Foundation’s selection of art-centric gift items. Whether you’re looking to add a bit of color to your own home or gift the perfect present, we suggest snagging a set of the Josef Albers-designed nesting tables. Created in collaboration with the MoMA, the four colorful tables can be used individually or stacked neatly together.

Valentine’s Day is not the only holiday worth celebrating jewelry, particularly with heart-shaped gems. Imagined in 18-karat gold, Dima’s dainty open band features a heart-shaped ruby surrounded by a halo of diamonds.
