What's new: Y-3, Chinti & Parker, Jeans for Genes


Image courtesy of matchesfashion.com Y-3 - the infamous pairing between Adidas and Yohji Yamamoto which has arguably transformed sportswear forever - and MatchesFashion.com team up to celebrate the artistry of Yamamoto himself. A cotton tote, classic tee and a striking lightweight poncho have been printed with one of the designer's ink drawings, depicting himself in a handstand. The artwork was unveiled at an event during Paris Fashion Week and currently hangs at No.23, Matches' private shopping townhouse in central London. I can't wax lyrical enough about the poncho, described as 'one of the most directional outerwear options of this season.' Bulls eye. £295. www.matchesfashion.com




As part of Pre-Fall, Chinti & Parker have released a capsule range exclusive to mega etailer Net-A-Porter. The collection consists of broderie anglaise and chambray pieces, in C&P's signature classic-with-a-twist style, including a Breton striped organic cotton T-shirt with sweet heart print and a cashmere and lace mix sweater. My pick? The delicate beauty of the white broderie anglais mini dress, with its softly pleated skirt, slightly high waist and pretty collar. Butter wouldn't melt in this girl's mouth .... £195, www.net-a-porter.com

To celebrate, the charity has  launched a super cool t-shirt,  by Edinburgh College of Art student Elle McKee. Elle's design, one of hundreds submitted via competition open to Edinburgh College of Art students, features a hand drawn hanger with Jeans for Genes writing and was picked by industry experts including fashion designer Holly Fulton and  fashion director of Stylist magazine, Alexandra Fullerton. Jeans for Genes Day is Friday, 18th September 2015 but the t-shirts (£20; all proceeds to the Jeans for Genes campaign) are available now at jeansforgenesday.org/shop
