2/8 The Attico x Re/Done
The suprisinging yet oh-so-right collaboration between American denim label Re/Done and The Attico was announced in mid-April, and what we saw on Instagram left us wanting more.
Designers Giorgia Tordini and Gilda Ambrosio have a knack for putting a vintage spin on easy-to-wear, of-the-moment pieces, so expect rhinestone-encrusted jeans, baggy shorts and even tulip-shaped camo trousers. The collection will debut its first pieces on the Re/Done website, as well as select retailers such as Matches Fashion and Barneys New York.

4/8 Ganni for Matches Fashion
Ask fashion insiders around the world to list their favourite contemporary brands, and you will inevitably hear of Ganni, a Copenhagen-based label that is taking the industry by storm. Their capsule collection for British retailer, Matches Fashion, is entitled Sun, Moon & You and draws inspiration from astrology.
“I’ve always loved the mystery of astrology and the idea that everything in the universe is connected to the stars, the moon and the sun” Ditte Reffstrup, creative director at Ganni, reveals, “we used this as our inspiration and chose an eclectic mix of cosmic prints with our classic leopard in true summer colours and shapes.”
