Pushing beyond conventional philanthropy, the Hudson Valley-based non-profit organisation works to increase access to fresh, nutritious, locally produced food while investing in collaborative long-term solutions for food security. How? By collaborating with a diverse and inspiring network of fashion brands, artists, and designers to generate resources that sustain its work locally and to cultivate awareness around food justice and sustainability worldwide.
At a time when streetwear is ubiquitous, it’s easy to forget that it was one counterculture. In the early 80s, a brand was born from the Southern California surf scene and swept through the clothing landscape to redefine the look and ideology of casualwear. That brand was Stüssy, a label that grew organically from youth movements, inadvertently revolutionised the clothing business and has never looked back.
Founded in 2016 by Gosha Rubchinskiy and pro-skater Tolia Titaev, Rassvet (pronounced Rass-vyet) is an evolution of Rubinsky's diffusion line Paccbet. With designs using streetwear shapes combined with subtle Soviet aesthetics, Rassvet seeks to discover the unique beauty in Russian culture.
From the moment he was appointed creative director in 2019, Bruno Sialelli has infused France's oldest continually operating fashion house with an infectious youthful energy. Sialleli’s work at Lanvin is rooted in three eras: the golden age of the house that Jeanne Lanvin built in the 1920s, his childhood in the 80s/90s, and the present. As he looks back to make sense of now, Lanvin SS22 explores the idea of wanderlust and our desire to view the world.
Inspired by a shared appreciation of craft, three friends created a clothing company that was determined not to be a fashion brand. Inspired by the wardrobe uniforms of artists as varied as Pablo Picasso and Ed Ruscha, Meta elevates the everyday by offering essential items to “live and work in”.
After taking inspiration from his years buying for the Nepenthes stores and combining it with his own vision, Daiki Suzuki's Engineered Garments has continually reimagined American workwear since 2002. Making garments that become more personal through the experiences you have with them, Engineered Garments is known for marrying utilitarian garments with eye-catching textures and fabrics.
Born out of curiosity, a hunger for authenticity, and a desire to innovate, Carhartt Work In Progress (Carhartt WIP) forms a division of the American brand Carhartt, one of the first companies to pioneer workwear in the USA. Since its inception in Europe in 1989, Carhartt WIP has been carefully adapting and modifying Carhartt's core product characteristics for a new generation.
Since its inception in 1966, Paco Rabanne has asserted a distinctive identity resulting from the synthesis of cutting-edge contemporary design and radical craft. Today, led by its Brittany-born creative director Julien Dossena, the Paris-based luxury house stands for revolution, rebellion and renaissance. For SS22, Dossena looked to modernist artist Victor Vasarely to create his latest optical illusion-filled offering.
Embracing the changing essence of fashion, each collection of reimagined classics script a new narrative – a world of possibilities and fantasies that silhouettes and patterns have the unique ability to convey. The Belgian-based brand is an ode to the playful reinvention of self through dress that speaks beyond genders and generations. For SS22, Rogge pushes the possibilities of workwear through proportion and colour play to create otherworldly Fisherman coats and quilted jackets.
Rooted in urban life and focused on sophisticated pleasures, the Turkey-based high-end brand is dedicated to producing ‘pieces to live in’. Look to Common Leisure for contemporary statement pieces that are made with care.
The cult, anarchic, game-changing New York label returns. Launched in 2006 by Shayne Oliver, Hood by Air quickly became the torchbearer for a new generation of Black, POC and queer creatives emerging out of the new New York. After a three year hiatus between 2017 and 2020, HBA is ready to reignite imaginations and reimagine what fashion can, and should, be.
From the moment Yoon Ahn co-founded experimental jewellery-turned-fashion label AMBUSH in 2008 with her husband Verbal, the self-taught designer has quietly challenged expectations and confidently pushed the industry forward. For SS22, Yoon took her distinctly city-based house in a new direction; looking outside and marrying technical styles with sleek silhouettes.
Who wants to be normal anyway? While this LA-based ‘Made in the USA’ label comes from ex-Yeezy alumni, the SS22 launch is shrouded in mystery but we can tease that it’s ready to challenge with colour, craft, and consciousness.
Rather than produce new garments, the design collective opts for an approach focussed on upcycling and repurposing. In three conceptually interwoven lines, Prototypes facilitate a conscious and collaborative attitude towards making and wearing fashion. Out with the new and in with the old.
Established in 2009 by its eponymous Sydney-born creative director, Dion Lee is Renowned for experimental construction combined with traditional tailoring, the brand has pioneered a modern identity for Australian fashion. Each collection marries innovative construction, with a consciousness of the form. Textiles are engineered to form sculptural embellishments. Architectural silhouettes are dissected to enhance movement and the flow of air and light.
Sixty years after the late André Courrèges’ space-age creations took the world by storm, Belgian designer Nicolas Di Felice is reintroducing the house to a new generation of shoppers, recontextualising its codes in a way that feels true to the now.
