Streetwear aficionados with a love of colour and print should be doing a happy dance right now with the release of the collab between Supreme and Emilio Pucci. The assortment includes a water-resistant nylon jacket and pants, a silk smoking jacket, shirts, hoodies and accessories including sunglasses; some looks are already sold out, naturally. Each boast an archival Pucci print: Tulipani, first seen in 1965, and Fantasia from 1970. And much like the Italian house’s vintage items, all are sure to become instant collector’s pieces.
M.I.A.’s eyewear collaboration with Parley for the Oceans is here

Heralded as “the first luxury collection to use 100 percent of net proceeds to protect islands and oceans,” the design union between musician and activist Maya Arulpragasam — a.k.a. M.I.A. — and ocean protection network Parley is now available. Part of Parley’s Clean Waves brand, which sees the artistic community contribute sustainably-minded designs, this new capsule is composed of innovative modular sunglasses fashioned from materials made of marine plastic debris and fishing nets.
“Nature is everything,” Arulpragasam said in a press release about the novel collection. “It’s your physical body, your mental state; it’s our oceans, land, air — everything is connected. If you have a good understanding of all these things, then we are in balance. And I think issues like overpopulation, overfishing, sea piracy, poverty, plastic pollution are all symptoms of a system that is broken.”

With a Pride-timed launch, MY Latitude — a new assemblage of intimates designed by Toronto-based creative Mary Young in collaboration with the cannabis brand Latitude by 48North — aims to invoke body positivity with a gender fluid twist. Featuring a robe, boxers, a bodysuit, bra and panties that have a custom leaf print, the line was crafted to “to honour individuality, bust stigma and inspire self-growth”. The notion ties in well with the Self-Love Club initiative founded by Young, which offers interviews, visual art and other forms of content and interaction geared towards getting you feeling inspired.

Stacked and slim-heeled boots, stiletto pumps and tasseled loafers are on the menu for the new Jimmy Choo x Billy Porter union (which is available for pre-order now). The award-winning actor, singer and activist lent his unique and glamorous eye for a makeover of some of the shoe brand’s most recognizable styles, updating them with bold hues and zebra print details. Extended sizing for the pieces is available, and points to Porter’s desire to amplify accessibility whenever possible. “The collection is dedicated to my mother,” Porter says in a quote on Jimmy Choo’s website. “[Her] biggest dream as a disabled woman was to be able to walk in a pair of high heeled shoes. She never got to achieve that dream, but I get to stand in proxy for her for all the world to see.”
