Your shopping roundup for the month
Bertoia diamond chair, $2,800
In honour of the late and great sculptor Harry Bertoia, furniture brand Knoll updates the classic Bertoia Diamond Chair. The glossy piece, finished with an 18-karat gold plate, is made from beryllium, Bertoia’s choice material for sculpting, and emulates the Sonambient (‘sound sculptures’) works the designer is best known for.
A Bathing Ape’s Spring/Summer Collection, from $79.90
BAPE (that’s ‘A Bathing Ape’, for the uninitiated) is at it again, stocking its AAPE diffusion line with slouchy jersey tees and slick hooded jackets. The collection comprises three styles: Black City bears a monochrome palette; Desert Army carries earthy tones and lots of camo; and AAPE Sport pays homage to Americana with tennis apparel.
Liberty London x Uniqlo, from $12.90
The UK institution teams up with the Japanese casual wear behemoth to serve up a second collection of floral lashings of fuschia, electric blue, soft purple, and grey stamped onto basics. There are maxi dresses, onesies, graphic tees, and toned-down paisley print shirts for the guys.
Alexa Chung x M&S, from $69.90
The British style icon – she’s held the title for three consecutive years at the British Fashion Awards – breathes new life into womenswear pieces from Marks and Spencer’s archives. Each piece is quintessentially Chung, like the white shirt accented with bold ruffles, the structured wide leg pants, and a relaxed, oversized trench coat.
