Following MSGM, a number of new, innovative brands are hitting the Milanese runway, including the likes of Shi.RT, by Aquilano and Rimondi, and Vitelli, headed up by Mauro Simionato and his experimental knitwear.
UK-based luxury brand Belstaff has released its results for the whole of 2020 and it was a decidedly mixed bag with clear improvements in some areas but the INEOS-backed business was still loss-making.
Winter’s coming and Belstaff is promising all-weather protection for AW21. Continuing its partnership with Gore-Tex, the luxury heritage brand has launched a “polished, precision-engineered" outerwear range.
Otrium, an online outlet store for fashion brands, said on Wednesday it had raised $120 million from investors as it launches in the US and develops its platform for trading items left unsold at the end of the season.
Belstaff, Hush, Nobis and Allbirds are turning their approach to Black Friday on its head and instead of focusing on money-off, it's all about raising money for charity, with one of the brands even raising prices.
