DIORIVIERA

How we dress is very much a microcosm of what’s going on in the world. Exhibit A: the sweatsuit phenomenon. Which is why fashion’s primary job is to make us dream. Whether by infiltrating our feeds, as was the case with the return of couture week, our wardrobes (turns out even recreational gear can go chic), or our favorite coastal locales (bonjour, Dioriviera), designers are giving us plenty to get excited about—and isn’t that the whole point?

POLO X FEED

Polo and FEED founder Lauren Bush Lauren teamed up with No Kid Hungry on a collection of catchall totes, packs, and pouches made with upcycled denim and woven jute alongside classic gender-neutral cuts, like the legendary polo. It’s preppy. It’s classic. It’s brimming with Ralph Lauren’s iconic style. Better still, with 10 percent of the profits going toward providing meals to kids in need throughout the US, it’s all for a (really) good cause.

COUTURE WEEK IS BACK
(WAAAY BACK)

Couture week is an exercise in spectacle. And with the return of the haute couture shows in Paris this past month—both in person and digital—there seemed to be a common thread woven through the fall-winter ’21 collections: a loving nod to the decadence of decades past.

There were roaring-’20s tassels swishing around Chanel’s legendary rue Cambon salon, evening-glove-adorned models done up in the kind of old-world glamour that would have made the late Cristóbal Balenciaga proud, sheaths of impeccably embroidered taffeta and matador-inspired monteras at Schiaparelli, and let’s not forget the Renaissance-era brocade frocks of fancy at Dior.

DESIGNERS TAKE IT OUTSIDE

While the fall couture shows served up a great deal of aspiration, the summer prêt-à-porter collections, by comparison, sensibly embraced the spirit of right now. Chanel tempted us to a day on the sand with a tropical-leaning capsule of black-and-white suits and towels, while Prada explored the practical with triangle-emblazoned water bottles, volleyballs, and nylon picnic bags.

CARTIER
SIXIÈME
SENS

A paragon of the truly exquisite, Cartier is known for crafting radiant, dazzling pieces. As for its newest collection, Sixième Sens? It’s all of that—and more. Brilliant gems emulate the natural, untamed wonders of the world, from a cascading configuration of mosslike emeralds to an intricate petal-shaped setting. They’re timeless, daring, and utterly mesmerizing.
