If it seems like fashion news is moving at a mile a minute, well, you’re not alone. Despite our numerous social media feeds and perpetual press releases, it can be hard to keep up with the latest industry updates—even as full-time editors—which is why we’re trying something new and boiling it down to just the basics. Here are the five new things fashion people are talking about right now:
Emporio Armani Opens Its Flagship Store in NYC
New York City’s iconic shopping neighborhood, SoHo, is officially back on the grid thanks in part to the opening of exciting designer stores such as Emporio Armani’s new flagship at 134 Spring Street.
For this opening, Armani shot its global ad campaign in NYC featuring several eye-catching black and white images that serve as a tribute to the city. There is also an exclusive EA Soho collection that will be sold only in-store at the flagship location.
Chloé Unveils Store Redesigns at Bal Harbour, Wynn, and Saks Fifth Avenue NYC
Chloé, one of the first certified B-corp luxury brands, has just unveiled its re-designed boutiques in Florida, Las Vegas, and New York. In line with the French brand’s commitment to environmental responsibility, the energy-efficient boutiques use recycled and lower-impact materials such as linen, stone, and other natural materials.

An Auction Fit for Hollywood Royalty
Next month, Julien’s Auctions is auctioning off over 1,400 pieces of iconic Hollywood memorabilia. Items include three dresses worn by Princess Diana, a pink dress worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Lauren Bacall’s wedding ring from 1945, and a taffeta dress worn by Greta Garbo in Camille. See the full list of items here. The auction begins on September 6.
Clare Waight Keller Returns to Uniqlo
Following her exit from Givenchy in 2020, Clare Waight Keller—perhaps best known as Meghan Markle’s wedding dress designer—is ready to try something new with Uniqlo. Her new collection, dubbed Uniqlo: C, will be unveiled online and in 1500 stores beginning on September 15. The collection features 30 pieces with Waight Keller’s signature pleated fabrics and even vegan leather Chelsea boots priced at just under $60.
Prepare for a Ferragamo Renaissance—Literally
The storied Italian heritage brand pays homage to its hometown with its Fall 2023 campaign in partnership with Florence’s Uffizi Gallery. Shot by esteemed Gen-Z photographer Tyler Mitchell, the campaign imagery features significant artistic works, such as Giorgio Vasari’s Portrait of Alessandro de Medici, as a backdrop for everything from sharply-tailored suits to elegant formalwear. Every single image (and every piece in the collection) is truly a sight to behold.
