June Fashion News

It finally feels like summer. Outdoor dining is taking over the bustling sidewalks; parks are packed with runners, bikers, and picnic enthusiasts; beach trips are back on. And from a style standpoint, the happenings are more enticing than ever. Case in point: June’s fashion news runs the gamut from tropical activations (spoiler: Jacquemus is teaming up with a Bahamas resort) and buzzed-about brand collaborations.

Those located in New York, for instance, are in for a treat this summer because pop-ups are, well, quite literally popping up everywhere. Next time you stroll through Nordstrom’s flagship in Manhattan (at 225 W 57th St), head up to the fifth floor for a refreshing beverage and a quick bite to eat at The Summer Terrace, a redesigned space that’ll be open until September. Or, if you’re in Brooklyn, stop by English clothing and homewares brand TOAST’s new store (the first in the United States!), located at 367 Atlantic Avenue in the Boerum Hill neighborhood.

On the shopping side, Away, a leader in the travel industry, joined forces with New York-based brand La Ligne for a summer capsule featuring a slew of comfy on-the-go essentials. And for the beach? Snag a punchy swimsuit or breezy dress from the La Double J and Orlebar Brown collaboration.

On the heels of its partnership with Sandy Liang, BAGGU is back with another exciting collaboration, this time with New York-based label Collina Strada. Available on June 25, the limited-edition drop boasts five bag silhouettes, from errand running-ready totes to travel-approved carry-on styles. What’s more, outdoorsy types will be fond of the beach towel, picnic blanket, and pop-up tent in the collection. The buzziest piece in the lineup is, without question, the horse-shaped bag, which comes in black (though it’s currently sold out) and green plaid (pictured above).

Away & La Ligne Launch A Summer Travel Capsule

If you have a summer vacation coming up, you certainly won’t want to miss out on Away’s aforementioned collaboration with La Ligne. On June 14, the two launched a 20-piece collection boasting everything you need for your upcoming travels — think airport-approved striped knits, cozy pajamas, and graphic baseball caps. Fronted by actor Natasha Lyonne, the visually pleasing campaign imagery was shot by Micaiah Carter at a private residence in Los Angeles. The products will be available online until they sell out — so if you see something you like, don’t sleep on it.

Get those OOO days approved ASAP because the Four Seasons are calling. More specifically, cult-favorite label Jacquemus partnered with the luxury hotel company to introduce a tropical experience at The Ocean Club in the Bahamas. From June 7 to July 31, guests will have the opportunity to browse through the French fashion house’s pop-up at the resort, which will include select pieces from its Spring/Summer 2024 collection, as well as an exclusive black and white striped towel designed by Jacquemus.

“Jacquemus shares our commitment to creating extraordinary lifestyle experiences, especially when it comes to bringing beloved summer holidays to life in postcard-perfect settings,” Marc Speichert, executive vice president and chief commercial officer at Four Seasons, said in a statement. “Even more — they share our dedication to creativity, innovation, and going above and beyond for our guests and customers. This collaboration perfectly pairs what each iconic brand does so beautifully, and we can’t wait to share it with our guests to experience themselves.”

La Double J & Orlebar Brown Team Up

No one does bold, mood-enhancing summer prints quite like La Double J. And as luck would have it, the Italian brand collaborated with beachwear label Orlebar Brown on perhaps the most joyful product assortment ever. Titled “Raise Your Vacation Vibration,” the collection consists of 34 swim and ready-to-wear styles — ranging from striped matching sets to floral midi dresses — rendered in three splashy patterns. You can shop the pieces on both brands’ sites, as well as on Net-a-Porter.

Shopbop Launches Exclusive Capsule With 3.1 Phillip Lim

On June 13, Shopbop and 3.1 Phillip Lim dropped a collegiate-looking exclusive collection. Co-designed by the online retailer’s fashion director, Caroline Maguire, and the namesake designer, the eight-piece capsule melds New York’s downtown cool aesthetic with the duo’s West Coast roots. “Phillip and I both moved from the West Coast to NYC 20 years ago — this collection celebrates ours and Shopbop’s anniversary,” Maguire explained on its site. The outcome? A preppy rugby mini dress, oversized varsity bomber jacket, of-the-moment studded accents, and more.

Scarosso Collaborates With Linda Rodin

Renowned footwear brand Scarosso tapped New Yorker and style icon Linda Rodin (who has the cutest Instagram with her pup, Winks) for a ballerina-inspired capsule collection, unveiled on June 6. “The partnership marries Rodin's distinctive style with Scarosso's craftsmanship, resulting in a charming capsule collection that pays homage to the timeless elegance of ballerina shoes,” the press release said. The lineup boasts two conversation-starting ballet flats — the T-bar Linda I silhouette and the buckle-adorned Linda II — splashed with vibrant colors (a Rodin signature).
