JW Anderson: Made in Britain

On November 9, JW Anderson is launching a new limited-edition, eco-conscious capsule collection called Made in Britain, featuring six ready-to-wear styles and accessories – all made here in the UK.

Alexander McQueen

Alexander McQueen has launched the Tall Story bag, captured here by Jamie Hawkesworth – an elegant statement bag for this autumn.

More Joy

Christopher Kane’s brand More Joy has just released a new collection which includes pyjamas (pictured), an apron, vinyl slipmats, coasters and an umbrella – all of which promise to spark more joy. Which is exactly what we need right now.

Beirut Re-Store

Creatives for Lebanon meanwhile has launched its first fashion drop selling bespoke pieces from the likes of Jean Paul Gaultier, Dior, Alaïa and Supriya Lele (pictured), among others, on recently launched online marketplace Beirut Re–Store. Money raised will be donated to those affected by the Beirut explosion.

Asics x Kiko Kostadinov

For trainer fans, Asics has unveiled its sixth and final collaboration with Kiko Kostadinov, taking inspiration from the London-based menswear label’s Autumn/Winter 2020 collection.


A new collection from one of our favourite jewellery designers, entitled The Roots, which features new signature chokers, bulbous rings, and pendant layering necklaces.

Amen Candles

New to Matchesfashion, Amen Candles is a new environmentally friendly candle brand aimed at inspiring positivity. The debut collection features seven fragrances “to help align our seven chakras allowing for a balanced mind, body and soul”. Sign us up.

Positive East

Speaking of positivity, London-based HIV charity Positive East has launched a collection of T-shirts designed by artists including Wolfgang Tillmans and Sunhil Gupta, whose work is currently on display at The Photographers’ Gallery.

Craig Green

Feted London-based designer Craig Green – best known for his cerebral yet wearable, often utilitarian clothes – has released his first bag, the Fold Bag, which is constructed from padded nylon and is available in both silver grey and black at Selfridges.


As the temperature drops, what we really need is a good winter coat and where better to buy one from Woolrich, whose ‘Outdoor’ Autumn/Winter 2020 collection is created in partnership with Japanese outdoor specialist Goldwin.

Uniqlo x Jil Sander

Uniqlo’s collaboration with legendary designer Jil Sander, the queen of minimalism is back. Available from November 12, this “global modern uniform”, which can be seen in the video below, is as sophistcated as it is understated.


Whitney Houston has just been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (by Alicia Keys no less) and Palace has created a special capsule collection to celebrate, featuring T-shirts, sweatshirts, caps and one very nice varsity jacket. Available from 13 November, all profits will go to the Whitney E Houston Legacy Foundation.

Fendi x Chaos

Fendi has collaborated with Charlotte Stockdale and Katie Lyall of London-based accessories brand Chaos, resulting in a series of ‘tech jewellery’ pieces – such as this extremely luxurious smartphone pouch – which offer a lavish alternative to your everyday accessories.
