Fashion Month came to a close, but that doesn’t mean the industry chatter is dwindling down. Indeed, October’s fashion news cycle highlights brand happenings from all over, from the announcement of new seasonal campaigns to fresh designer drops in upcoming fall collections. De Beers Jewellers, for one, just launched a genderless line of blinged-out rings, bracelets, and necklaces — the first of its kind in its 100+ year history.
Accessory labels Swarovski and Aquazzura, on the other hand, debuted a shoe collaboration that doubles down on fall’s metallic trend in a harlequin way, while LoveShackFancy and Larroudé came together to create an edgy take on the garden party shoe. On the activewear front, Savage X Fenty is debuting a new lingerie-inspired activewear line. And, you shouldn’t miss music superstar Beyoncé in Tiffany & Co.’s minute-long anthem film, called Lose Yourself In Love. (“An homage to the joy of being one’s unapologetic self,” the brand called it in a press statement, and as a way to show its continued support of underrepresented communities in partnership with the Carters.)
To help you stay up-to-date on the newest brand collaborations, clothing launches, store openings (What Goes Around Comes Around is officially on Amazon!), and more, this story will be updated with need-to-know information until the end of the month. Read on to get a pulse on all of the industry news.
