December fashion news

Good news: If you waited until the very last minute to purchase a look for a holiday gathering or New Year’s Eve event this December, it seems this actually worked out in your favor. How so? Brands left and right are releasing new collections perfect for whatever is on the schedule this month. The J.Crew and Anna October collaboration, for example, just dropped on Dec. 5, and it’s essentially a one-stop-shop for party dressing. Not to mention, if you still have a few people to check off your holiday shopping list, you’re guaranteed to find gift-buying inspiration within the biggest fashion news of December, which we’re breaking down for you here.

But first, let’s talk a little more about that J.Crew and Anna October drop. The limited-edition line features everything from feminine sequin dresses to playful feather-adorned tops. If we had to choose a favorite look from the assortment, though, it would probably be the flirty blush sequin slip. As for accessorizing your slinky new number? A just-out assortment from Balenciaga and Jacob & Co. has just the thing (actually, well, four). From chunky chain necklaces to nameplate necklaces, the high-octane, diamond-encrusted selection is ideal for festive affairs.

Before we give away too much info, keep scrolling ahead to read up on these debuts and more.

On Dec. 15, BY FAR, a cult-favorite Bulgarian brand loved by celebrities like Kendall Jenner and Kaia Gerber, made its first foray into ready-to-wear. “This natural progression for the brand is rooted in its mission to bring high-end quality as a standard for all,” the press release said. “The entire product range is infused with the intrinsic energy BY FAR is known for – chic, unpretentious, mischievous, and alluring.” Key styles in the label’s Cruise 2024 collection include lace separates, leather bottoms, and relaxed denim.

Kim Kardashian’s Erewhon shopping bag and the onslaught of low-rise tracksuits weren’t the only highlights from Balenciaga’s Fall/Winter 2024 show on Dec. 2. ICYMI: On the runway (err, streets of Los Angeles) last week, the maison unveiled a jewelry collaboration with Jacob & Co., a high-end watchmaking brand. The opulent styles were first spotted on the one and only Cardi B, who wore the Diamant chain necklace and Diamant typo ring while strutting down the catwalk.

According to the press release, Balenciaga’s creative director Demna Gvasalia chose Jacob & Co. for the partnership because the brand isn’t a traditional jeweler. “The partnership pushes boundaries, and the result is both innovative and unconventional,” it reads in the statement. “The collaboration seamlessly marries Balenciaga's expansion into high jewelry with Jacob & Co.'s venture into high fashion, resulting in the exquisite Diamant collection.” The new pieces are available now on Balenciaga Couture’s website upon request as well as the French label’s Rodeo Drive flagship store in Los Angeles.

Handcrafted in Brooklyn by artisan Willa Blank of Blank Supply, the one-of-a-kind offerings include 15 jackets (each priced at $650) and 10 bucket hats (which are sold for $150).

“We are thrilled to be partnering with TFR, one of the most creative and dynamic companies in the lab-grown diamond space right now,” Antoine Borde, CEO of Lightbox, said in the press release. “TFR CEO Anthony Tsang and his team are well-tapped into the younger, global consumer and how they want to engage, not just with lab-grown diamond jewelry, but with brands overall. We believe there is tremendous potential to expand our community globally thanks to this unique collaboration.”
