As I write TZR’s monthly On The Pulse series (if this is your time first here, welcome!), I think I may sound like a broken record to my coworkers, slacking them something along the lines of, “Wow, there’s so much going on.” And while I always mean it (October was truly a whirlwind), I’d argue this month is the busiest and most exciting so far this year. Case in point: We’re not even halfway through November yet, and there’s already tons of fashion news to cover, from first-ever brand collaborations to holiday campaigns.
Let’s kick off the convo with the latest brand partnerships. For starters, Sporty & Rich and Adidas are continuing their partnership with a third collection. In their newest drop, the label’s reimagined Adidas’ iconic Stan Smith sneaker. “Arriving in an all-white make-up and swapping out the sneaker’s classic leather upper for a canvas construction, the Stan Smith Sporty & Rich features green accents, including a Trefoil on the lateral and Sporty & Rich lettering on the tongue,” Emily Oberg, the founder of Sporty & Rich, said in a press release. And if you’re a pet parent (me, me, me!), you’ve likely already caught wind of the buzzy Sandy Liang and Little Beast collaboration, which dropped on Nov. 10. Matching bubblegum pink knits for you and your furry friend? It’s a yes for us.
And because the holidays are drawing near, luxury labels are beginning to release their seasonal campaigns. Burberry, for one, just dropped its newest imagery, with adorable animals fronting the ads. That’s right, the British fashion house skipped models this year and instead shot dogs and ducks alongside its holiday accessories, including fuzzy mules, silk scarves, and plaid blankets.
Ahead, read up on November’s top fashion news, and continue checking back as we’ll update this news feed throughout the month.
Warby Parker & Emma Chamberlain Release Limited-Edition Frames
Industry-favorite eyewear brand Warby Parker has tapped internet sensation Emma Chamberlain to debut limited-edition frames ($95) on Nov. 29.

Rachel Zoe Releases Her Winter Box Curation For CURATEUR
Struggling with gift ideas? Allow Rachel Zoe to lend a hand. The style guru’s six-piece winter box curation for CURATEUR is chock-full of luxe items for both the style obsessed and fashion curious. The Leeada Bryn Pearl Lariat Necklace, for instance, is a must-have piece everyone should have in their jewelry box. “I love this lariat for dressing up everyday winter looks, like a cashmere sweater and jeans. It’s even more of a standout when worn with a v-neck or plunging neckline,” Zoe said in a press release. And if they’re more of a homebody, try the The Show Me Your Mumu Harlow Robe. “Even when I’m just hanging out at home over the holidays, I like to feel a little fashionable. This patterned robe is equally stylish and comfortable, so I’ll be wearing it all season,” said Zoe.
Best of all, the whole product assortment is worth $650, but with the CURATEUR box, you can score everything for $125. Plus, first time purchasers can use the code STYLED for $25 off of the curation box membership (valid through Feb. 1).

The collaboration seeks to achieve this same effect by focusing on the tiny details that transform apparently simple pieces to make them timeless and desirable at the same time.” A few key items from the cashmere-heavy assortment include striped pullovers, neutral trousers, and pastel beanies.
