Gigi Hadid steps behind the camera for Weekend Max Mara’s Family Affair campaign
Florals for spring are groundbreaking, says Weekend Max Mara. With a 1970s psychedelic edge, the line’s new Family Affair campaign was shot by none other than Gigi Hadid. Stepping from in front of the camera to behind it, the supermodel captures pieces pulled from the brand’s Signatures line, which were created by lauded stylist Gabriella Karefa-Johnson, who was inspired by the personal styles of women from her family.

A.P.C. joins forces with Jessica Ogden
A.P.C.’s never ceases to surprise in its approach to crafting classic items. The brand’s new Interaction collection was developed by designer Jessica Ogden, who upcycled left-over A.P.C. fabrics into reinterpretations of her signature designs. There’s quilted denim and patchwork plaid, along with plenty oversized fits. With a Wes Anderson-like appreciation for symmetry, that collection gives a new life to1980s inspirations. Oh, and don’t think we forgot about the glorious sunshine we’re experiencing. The pineapple print, re-emerging through the entire collection, makes the perfect uniform to devour piña coladas in.

After it sold out globally, now you can shop this beauty on the maison’s website. Cross our bags and hope to die – we promise you won’t find anything cuter.

Lanvin gets painterly
We all know that sequels are usually better than the original, and Lanvin’s second collaboration with Gallery Department is no exception. For the sophomore collection, artist Josué Thomas worked with Lanvin’s Bruno Sialell to create a range that includes tangerine-hued denim and artsy blazers. The collection’s highlight, though, are the sneakers, which fuse Lanvin’s beloved The Curb model with Josué Thomas’ paint splashes. Shop here.
