They’re not exactly what you’d call fun furs, but Hockley’s new 20-piece collection designed by Clements Ribeiro is sure to put a smile on the faces of fur fans — and make a few new ones. The line, which made its showroom debut during London Fashion Week, has a young look and a groovy, flea-market vibe. “We set out to create fur coats for women who’ve never worn fur before,” said Inacio Ribeiro. “When I design, I think like a fur virgin, which means nothing fancy — no twisting, melting or overdyeing. I just want fresh and modern.” To wit, the duo’s black overcoat looks at first as if it’s made of wool, but it’s actually sheared mink. A short, black-and-white fox jacket has a bright purple velvet belt tied at the waist, while a white bleached mink jacket looks fine with — or without — its black dyed fox tippet. The old-Hollywood-style printed fox wrap can be draped over anything from a pair of jeans to an Oscar gown.
Retail prices range from about $1,134 for a rabbit capelet to $8,500 for the black sheared mink overcoat. The collection will be on sale at Hockley’s store on London’s Conduit Street, and the British fur company is aiming to sell to specialty stores in the U.K., Europe and the U.S. Ribeiro, who featured a handful of furs in the Clements Ribeiro ready-to-wear collection, believes fur is the new cashmere. “There was a time when young women didn’t wear cashmere sweaters,” he said. “Then there was a revolution, and today everyone has two or three — or 20. Very soon, we’ll be used to the idea of having two or three furs in the closet.”
@chanel and @pharrell dropped what’s being dubbed as the world’s most exclusive sneakers yesterday. The Adidas Originals NMD Hu, which Williams designed in collaboration with Chanel and @adidasoriginals, has a waiting list of over 120K people who pre-registered online at chanelatcolette.fr –– and only 500 pairs are on sale. The singer predicted the resale value of the shoes could reach $40K. Read the full interview on WWD.com. Link in bio. #wwdfashion (📷: Dominique Maître)
@imanshumpert is diving deeper into his creative endeavors and relaunching his clothing line, Post 90s, and is helping to raise money for the hurricane victims in St. Maarten with a jersey he’s designed with his brother.

“It’s life, I’m going to face it,” @mingxi11 sighed. “I fell, but you know, I think the most important thing is that I get back up. I had the love, the help from my sister — the girl next to me Gizele [Oliveira] — she’s so nice. When I went backstage everybody was trying to comfort me like ‘Oh Ming, it’s OK.’ I’m really, really touched. I think it’s them who gave me the courage to go back on stage for the finale,” Xi told WWD of her fall at the @victoriassecret fashion show.

@louisvuitton tapped @therealpeterlindbergh for its latest city-centric photo book, which is part of a series called Fashion Eye. The primarily black and white book captures the spirit of Berlin in 57 images shot between 1989 and 2019. “Berlin is an inspiration for me, more than a city. I mean @millajovovich is simply Berlin!” said Lindbergh. #wwdfashion
“You know, I think audiences expect a certain performance so I have to deliver to them what they’re expecting to a certain degree. But I’m also a different actor and a different person, I have my own spin on the character,” says @noahegalvin of his takeover of the leading role in “Dear Evan Hansen” following the departure of @bensplatt, who originated the role.

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.
