One of the best parts about the fashion industry is there’s always something exciting going on. Even in January, a month that’s notoriously sleepy and, frankly, boring, the calendar is packed. Award show season is picking back up, with the Critics Choice Awards and Emmys happening during the middle of the month (BTW, we’ve got you covered on the best red carpet moments). Then, on Jan. 29, insiders will touch down in Copenhagen for its Fall/Winter 2024 Fashion Week. While you patiently wait for these in-person events, the January fashion news is here to keep you from falling into a winter style rut (we’ve all been there).
Considering designers’ latest collaborations, collections, and campaigns are already looking great, it’s safe to say 2024 will be a strong year for fashion. Just look at White + Warren’s new partnership with The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The luxe knitwear label and renowned museum joined forces to create a limited-edition cashmere collection with art references throughout (spoiler: you’ll probably want every single piece). As far as new fashion shoots go, Warby Parker just unveiled its Spring 2024 campaign, fronted by celebrities like Jemima Kirke, Antonia Gentry, Brandon Flynn, and more stars. The imagery highlights the eyewear brand’s new spring collection (more on it ahead).
Scroll ahead to learn more about January’s fashion happenings. Friendly reminder: We’ll update this page with more news throughout the month.

Tory Burch Opens A New Store In Los Angeles
Attention all Los Angeles residents (and those visiting): Designers Tory Burch and Humberto Leon have collaborated on a new concept store, and it’s a must-see. Opening its doors on Jan. 22, the gorgeous space, which carries the first drop of Tory Burch’s Spring 2024 collection, located at 8483 Melrose Avenue, features visually pleasing pictures of cats courtesy of German photographer Walter Schels. “The pictures are so arresting.

I wanted it to feel like walking into an exhibition.” The stunning pastel pink ceramic seats were created by Aranza Garcia of Chuch Estudio in Merida, Mexico.
