Classic Tommy Hilfiger style is reimagined by Romeo Hunte in new capsule
One of NYC’s hottest designers right now is Brooklyn-native Romeo Hunte, whose designs have appeared on celebs like Joe Jonas, Machine Gun Kelly, and even Michelle Obama herself. Today, Tommy Hilfiger has unveiled their latest capsule, designed in tandem with Hunte’s label, dubbed TommyXRomeo. The capsule features classic Hilfiger pieces like puffer jackets, trench coats, jeans, shorts, and sweatshirts, as well as accessories, but remixed via Hunte’s signature deconstructed design, creating fresh looks meant to appeal to a new generation of shoppers. The collaboration is a result of the People’s Place Program, an initiative started by Hilfiger which finds and nurtures young talent from underrepresented BIPOC communities.

Samsung taps Thom Browne for new Galaxy Z designs
In his third collaboration with Samsung, Thom Browne has created two new editions for the Seoul-based company’s upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Flip 3. Although tech companies have been tapping into the fashion industry for decades— think: Nokia’s Versace phone from 2006, or the 2015 Apple Watch with an Hermès band—Thom Browne has a particularly keen eye for creating a truly usable fashion phone. The devices feature streamlined glass and metal design with a soft color palette, and, much like the brand, the overall effect is minimalist yet deeply chic and luxurious. The fashion house has also released a video to celebrate the launch, showing the phones in the hands of two models clad in similarly subtle Thom Browne pleated skirts and tailored blazers. The limited edition phones will be available starting August 11.
Alo Yoga becomes official wellness partner to the NYFW Shows

Kicking off the partnership will be an invite-only two-day event at Spring Studios starting on September 9, wherein guests will enjoy an immersive experience with Kundalini yoga classes, sound baths on the roof, astrology readings, acupressure treatments, and more. The yoga brand will also be hosting events at their Flatiron and Soho sanctuary spaces, from September 6 to 12.
Michael Kors releases MK40, celebrating 40 years in fashion
Michael Kors is releasing MK40 Reissue Capsule, a collection of new pieces with designs culled from past seasons and greatest hits from his four decades in the biz. The brand originally teased MK40 during their Fall 2021 public runway show in Times Square this past April. The line includes iconic pieces like a camel wrap dress à la Fall 1991, and a Swarovski-encrusted slip dress taken from Resort 2010. Each garment will also have a QR code printed on its tags, which will send the scanner to a microsite, which has even more exclusive content like photos and videos of the man himself extrapolating on each MK40 piece. The capsule is being released in Michael Kors Collection stores and online in monthly drops, so get yours while you can!
Sarah Jessica Parker may be skipping this year’s Met Gala
Rumors started swirling about Parker’s potential absence from this year’s Met Gala when her longtime attendee partner, Bravo boss Andy Cohen, admitted he will not be going to the festivities this year in order to, “take a year off,” and that SJP will likely still be in the middle of filming the Sex and the City reboot during the fête. The Met Gala without SJP?! Seems impossible! And yet, 2021 never ceases to amaze us…
Is Kim Kardashian dipping into swimwear?
Many are speculating that Kim Kardashian may be planning a move into swimwear, either with her Skims brand or through a new venture. This week, fans became obsessed with the idea of an impending swimwear launch when the international celeb replied to someone who had tweeted “S W I M B E R L Y” at her, with a “S O O N C O M E.” This sent her avid followers into a tizzy, only fueled further by the Skims official Twitter account replying to Kardashian’s exchange with three black heart emojis. In fact, a swim or resort line from our original Kardashian crush seems totally conceivable since, as pointed out by Page Six, her 2019 Skims trademark includes swimwear, swim caps, and beach cover-ups.
