The lastest news in Fashion and Luxury (episode 10)


NellyRodi’s fashion and luxury experts share their picks from the market’s major updates. Episode 10 covers September and October 2023.

22 SEPTEMBER – Pharrell Williams x Moncler

In collaboration with artist Pharrell Williams, Moncler presents an avant-garde collection built around outdoors activities with a glamping (chic camping) accent. The partnership, part of the Moncler Genius project, combines savoir-faire with functional clothing. Details from Williams include detachable sleeves and pants that turn into shorts as well as esthetic touches such as detachable pockets and keychains that can be customized – all in a varied palette that goes from slate gray to moss green. The collection, which has been available since 22 September, represents a new fashion win for Williams. At the same time, Moncler continues to do very well, having reached over a billion euros in sales for the first half of the year.

29 SEPTEMBER – The it boys that brands adore 

Troye Sivan, Kit Connor and Timothée Chalamet are today’s new faces of fashion. They’ve got the advantage of charm, pay careful attention to how they dress and represent a generation without complexes that’s queer and passionate about being free – all qualities brands are looking for. Their presence on the catwalks and in advertising campaigns are examples of the trend of celebrity-status and individuality beating out traditional fashion models. We saw singer Troye Sivan at both the Miu Miu and Paco Rabanne SS24 shows. Kit Connor was spotted at the Loewe show wearing crystal-covered shirt and pants. Timothée Chalamet, lauded for helping introduce a more eclectic men’s fashion, has been on five GQ covers. These it boys are becoming ways for brands to make their mark in our times.

12 OCTOBER – Birkenstock on the New York Stock Exchange 

The Birkenstock brand, founded in 1774, had a rough beginning on Wall Street last week. The shoemaker’s shares fell 12.6% compared to its launch price, making it the worst initial public offering for a company worth over a billion dollars in the last two years in the United States. The brand, however, is part of the LVMH Group and boasts several assets. The sandals made a particular splash in the successful Barbie movie when they were worn by the main character. Over the past nine months, Birkenstock posted sales of $1.11 billion. And since the L Catterton private equity firm and the Financière Agache Group (managed by Bernard Arnault) acquired controlling interest in 2021, the brand has announced plans to export to the Chinese market. At the same time, the Birkenstock family dynasty remains shareholders in the company.

12-15 OCTOBER 2023 – An excellent 38th edition of the Festival de Hyères 

The 38th edition of the international Festival de Hyères introduced tomorrow’s fashion designers, accessories designers and photographers. The event awarded Belgian designer Igor Dieryck the Première Vision Grand Prix for his “Yessir” collection inspired by the world of hotels and the hospitality industry. Swedish designer Petra Fagerstrom received the Atelier des Matières Prix and the Mercedes-Benz Prix for her “Flying Grandma” collection based on the story of her parachutist grandmother during the Soviet era. Swiss designer Gabrielle Huguenot won the Grand Prix for Accessories for her baroque-punk style jewelry, shoes and bags. And French designer Victor Salinier’s originality was recognized with the Hermès Accessories Prix. Photography was also on the program, with Franco-Swiss Thaddé Comar winning the 7L Grand Prix. The Hyères Festival is an opportunity to showcase current issues through the perspective of the young generation. Sustainable development is still a major concern as is mental health, and those issues were visible in the collections with their heavy, anxious moods symbolized by cage-like clothing and hidden faces.

13 OCTOBER – The “Jacquemus, le prince soleil” documentary 

Loïc Prigent’s new documentary, broadcast on France 5 on 13 October, shines the light on the success of fashion designer Simon Porte Jacquemus. In less than 10 years, the young designer became a leading figure with his joyful, Provencal style. “Jacquemus, le prince soleil” tells his story, from his beginnings as a self-taught designer to the founding of the Jacquemus brand. Using archival images, interviews and backstage footage from fashion show, film covers each step, from his first collections to the Versailles show last June. The portrait of this determined, inspired artist is a powerful ode to creativity and perseverance. The film also explores the deep connection between Jacquemus and his mother, Valérie Jacquemus, whose name inspired the brand and his work and who has been a constant source of inspiration, despite her sudden death.

16 OCTOBER – Davide Renne at Moschino 

Davide Renne has been named Moschino’s new Creative Director and will take up responsibilities on 1 November, according to an announcement by the Aeffe Group. Renne, who is from Tuscany, succeeds Jeremy Scott, who served as Creative Director for a decade before leaving the post in March. Renne becomes the fourth Creative Director, following Scott, Rosella Jardini and founder Franco Moschino. Since 2004 he has been the Head Designer of Womenswear for Gucci. Aeffe CEO Massimo Ferretti expressed his confidence in Renne’s ability to create Moschino’s future. His first collection for the Italian house will be presented at Milan Fashion Week in February 2024.
