CHECK THIS OUT: Fashion exhibitions in London you need to book right now

1. ASOS x Wall's

The slightly odd pairing of Asos and Wall’s ice cream is sure to get you in the mood for summer. Haven’t you always dreamed of an actual Twister heel on your shoe or a clutch that looks like a giant Feast? The collection also features a sequin multi-lolly dress. Festival season just got a lot more fun, suckers. From £8 to £150.

Available now.

2. Puma x House of Hackney

East London printsters House of Hackney have lent their patterns to Puma for a second collaboration. They’ve re-imagined running gear and classic sneaker styles (including the R698 and Becker OG) using the instantly recognisable Palmeral palm tree pattern and the Midnight Garden dark florals.

When: Available now.


3. Balmain x H&M

H&M are the undisputed kings of high-street/high-end collaborations – Isabel Marant, Karl Lagerfeld and Alexander Wang have all teamed up with the fast-fashion giant in recent years. Their latest hook-up is with glitzy super-brand Balmain, and has been described by creative director Olivier Rousteing as “a movement of togetherness, fuelled on a hashtag.” Right. Expect a lot of Instagram shout-outs from Rousteing’s impossibly glamorous girl gang, which includes Rihanna, Jourdan Dunn and most of the Kardashian kontingent. 

When: Available from November 5.

4. Carine Roitfeld x Uniqlo

This autumn sees former French Vogue editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld lend her impeccable style credentials to Uniqlo for a 40 piece collaboration. She’ll be following in the well-heeled footsteps of fashion legends like Jil Sander and Inès de la Fressange. How will Roitfeld’s oh-so French, mussed-up aesthetic translate to the Japanese brand’s minimal basics? You’ll have to wait and see.

When: Available from late October

5. Oasis x V&A

To pick out prints for this crowd-pleasing collaboration, Oasis's design team had the enviable task of rummaging through the V&A's unrivalled textile archives. They've chosen 11 botanical blooms that date back over two centuries, bringing them into the present day using contemporary cuts and clean lines. The first half of the collection arrives on Thursday May 21, just in time for garden party season.

When: Available now.

Kylie + Kendall for Topshop

6. Topshop x Kendall + Kylie

The Jenner sisters have taken pencils to paper and designed a range for Topshop. Their 15-piece collection comprises of Hawaiian shirt-and-shorts co-ords, spring duster coats and a ‘When it doubt, vacation’ slogan sweater. All right for some. £28-£80.

When: Available from June 3.


7. Christopher Shannon x River Island

River Island’s Design Forum initiative provides a platform for the best and brightest new fashion designers. Menswear rising star Christopher Shannon is the latest to take part: influenced by the street style of the ‘90s, his 11-piece collection is titled ‘Call. The. Cops’ and has a retro sports-luxe feel. £30 to £120.

When: Available from September.

8. Whistles x Frame

Fun-focused Shoreditch gym Frame has changed the way the capital exercises. Now, it’s launching a line of sportswear with Whistles. According to founders Pip Black and Joan Murphy, it’s made to suit all shapes (not just gym bunnies) and can be worn out of the gym without looking weird. £35-£80.

When: Available from June 4.

Markus Lupfer X Linda Farrow

9. Markus Lupfer x Linda Farrow

These daisy-shaped frames, created in collaboration with the shades supremoes at Linda Farrow, managed to steal the show at Markus Lupfer’s autumn-winter presentation. That’s no mean feat – the designer provoked ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ from fashion’s it-crowd by casting fluffy bunny rabbits as well as models. £195.

When: Available from July.

10. Petit Bateau x Jean-Charles de Castelbajac

In a meeting of two typically French super-brands, designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac has buddied up with Petit Bateau for a primary-coloured capsule collection. PB’s trademark nautical styles get a pop-art makeover: the classic raincoat becomes a bright poncho, the marinière acquires some colour-popping shoulder-pads.

When: Available from October 19.
