2022 is Coming in Hot with Savage X Fenty’s US Stores
Just when we thought the Savage X Fenty empire could not get any bigger, the unstoppable brand have just announced via Instagram an expansion to open their first physical storefront locations in the US. Unapologetic confidence, fearless beauty and a fierce attitude to fashion as well as the star’s Midas touch is everything we can expect from the brand’s retail experience. Not to mention the electric neon and bold colourways that are sure to illuminate the label’s revolutionary pieces.

Barbie Pink to Make Balmain Wink
Ever imagined a barbie girl living in a Balmain world? French luxury fashion house, Balmain are toying with that very idea this season as they collaborate with Mattel’s Barbie doll. Drawing inspiration from Balmain’s elevated aesthetic and the diverse style of the Parisian boulevard with splashes of 90’s nostalgic Barbie pink, the brands present a unisex, fashion and accessories collection. Ready-to-wear pieces of tees, dungarees and hoodies are amongst signature mermaid dresses and structured tailoring; splashed with soft blushes and bubble-gum tones between the signature marinere and Labyrinth patterns. No longer will Barbie and Ken follow gender ideals but instead be interchangeable in this multi-cultural, inclusive and joy-filled 50-piece collection. What’s more, the brand has also entered the virtual world of NFT’s through their online avatars. Connecting both the physical world and digital metaverse, each garment comes with virtual artwork too!
