The fashion world is always full of surprises – and it doesn’t seem to ever stop creating the newest “it item”. Whether it’s Li-Ning giving a classic shoe a revamp with a colour scheme inspired by a gorgeous sunrise, or Moncler joining forces with Craig Green and reimagining clothing into pop-out 3D works of art, here’s the hottest fashion news you need to know about. Li-Ning and Erik Ellington Athletic apparel brand Li-Ning joins hands with skateboarding icon Erik Ellington once again to launch its skate shoe Sun-Rise in a new colour scheme. As part of Li-Ning’s newly introduced skateboarding category, Erik Ellington’s signature model revamps the classic skate shoe with the brand’s Boom midsole technology that cushions the foot, adding comfort to each landing while keeping weight to a minimum. While function, comfort and performance are key, the design doesn’t leave out the important element of style. Inspired by the hues of the sunrise, the black shoes depict the darkness of the night sky before it transits into the break of dawn, captured by the pink-purple gradient midsole. The shoelaces are even entwined with a 3M reflective yarn that bedazzles with each trick you attempt. The luxury lives of Kourtney Kardashian’s children Moncler and Craig Green Moncler has joined forces with the creative imagination of British designer Craig Green for the sixth time, on this occasion taking inspiration from the performance of garments in inclement weather. Green and Moncler’s collaboration has fostered garments that make a fetish out of the functional. Whimsical workwear jackets incorporate a whistle and 3D pop-up logo while backpacks pack flat for minimal storage. Parkas, quilted jackets and vests feature along with the more usual trousers, T-shirts and sweatshirts. The palette is mostly earthy shades, with interjections of bold blue and red, lemon yellow, grass green and pink. Christian Louboutin Think of Christian Louboutin , and the image that springs to mind is of implausibly high shoes with spiky heels that will likely have you tottering about when you try to wear them during a night on the town. The Parisian shoe sorcerer has defied that reputation somewhat though with his new Our Angels collection of surprisingly wearable but reliably glam boots. How many Hermès Birkins does Jane Birkin have? The towering heights are still present and correct, but the pointy heels have been largely replaced with platforms, and the aesthetic has moved from classic elegance to glam rock chic. The collection includes four pairs of bootees, four of knee-high boots and one of over-the-knee boots, in materials that include black and leopard print leather, velvet and satin, with some pairs adding brocade and embroidery. Alongside all the boots are two Kypipouch bags: one in embroidered yellow satin and one in black velvet adorned with crystals. Yohji Yamamoto Yohji Yamamoto’s spring/summer 2022 collection was recently presented at Paris Fashion Week, with the theme of addressing climate change, embracing the need to be sustainable while bringing a Yamamoto twist. Natural fibres like linen and cotton are widely used, with the garments showing a casual lightness but retaining the classic grungy colour palette and sleek silhouettes that the Japanese designer is known for. Yamamoto believes that black needs no help from colour and that it can be accented with cutting. That being said, touches of white and silver are used to add highlights to the collection. From reconstructed trench coats to dresses with skirt-hoops, the contrasting fabrics show telltale innovative style, while embodying that crucial message about sustainability.
