In this edition of Brand New, we’re sharing details on the latest from names like LOEWE, Chanel, Moncler, and more.
Equally stylish and adorable, LOEWE’s latest capsule collection offers an ode to Hayao Miyazaki’s 1988 animation My Neighbor Totoro. Made in collaboration with the creator’s Studio Ghibli, a selection of clothing and accessories feature the movie’s characters and imagery as graphics. Our favorites include an orange biker jacket with tiny black, googly-eyed puff balls on the zipper pulls and an oversized logo tee featuring Totoro.
Horology connoisseurs gather ‘round for the release of Chanel‘s new publication on its J12 Automatic timepiece. The perfect gift or addition to your own coffee table, the book offers an elegantly illustrated history of the watch by Nicholas Foulkes—beginning with its release in 2000, when it launched as the first black ceramic round watch.
Entitled “Born to Protect,” Moncler has launched a new line of sustainable coats for men, women, and children. Responsibility is embraced in all facets of the collection, including sustainable or recycled fabrication and hardware, traceable sourcing of material, and even eco-conscious packaging. The all-black jackets come in several variations of a puffer design, including details like detachable hood, removable sleeves, and a full-body design.
Snag something from Marni’s latest glassware collection to add a vibrant statement to your table. Including a series of glasses, vases, and carafes, the Colombian-crafted colored glass pieces have been created in versions like swirling dual-color combinations and a corded glass, which makes the objects appear as if they’ve been covered in squeezes of paint.
Alejandra Alonso Rojas’s new collection of Patchwork bags feature one-of-a-kind totes made by repurposing excess leather and suede. Utilizing the leftover material to ensure almost zero waste, the chicly responsible handbag comes in colors like teal and tan, featuring a slouchy, twisted body with one strap meant to be worn on the arm.
Isabel Marant’s inaugural “La Montre” watch collection is centered around three styles named for the birth dates of the brand founders—the square-shaped 12.04, the round 10.05, and the oval-dialed 28.07. Available with golden, silver, black, or anthracite faces, each piece has been imagined with minimalist designs signature to the fashion house, like thin cases, dainty detailing, and interchangeable bracelets like metallic mesh and a velvet or leather version.
Acne Studios’ second edition of its “Repurposed” sustainable series offers a collection of womenswear made from existing fabrics. Giving new life to previous garments and material, the house created fresh designs that give suggestions of their former use—like a leather-and-denim skirt with zippers up the sides or a button-up shirt in multiple colored fabrics.
If you’re looking to treat yourself or surprise someone special, Jacquie Aiche’s Pave Opal Teardrop Center Freshwater Pearl Beaded necklace might catch your eye. The exquisite selection of pearls is strung onto a delicate gold chain closure, centered around a central teardrop of opal, that shimmers from within a halo of tiny diamonds.
