Lanvin Named Peter Copping Its New Creative Director

On Thursday, Lanvin named Peter Copping its new artistic director. The designer, who boasts degrees from Central Saint Martins and the Royal College of Art in London, previously worked for fashion houses including Louis Vuitton, Nina Ricci, Oscar de la Renta and Balenciaga. He’ll officially take the helm at Lanvin this September.

In a statement, Copping said, “Jeanne Lanvin was a visionary of her time whose interests and passions extended far beyond fashion, as do my own. I am extremely honoured to have been chosen as Artistic Director of Lanvin and to be able, along with the atelier and teams, to write the next chapter for this iconic house.”

SKIMS Reunited With Team USA for Paris 2024 Olympics and Paralympics Partnership

Following on from their previous capsule collections during both the Tokyo 2020 and Beijing 2022 Games, SKIMS has reunited with Team USA for an expanded lineup of underwear, sleepwear, loungewear and more for this summer’s Olympics and Paralympics in Paris. Notably, the partnership will include men’s, swim and adaptive styles for the first time, too.

“Our shared mission of empowering everybody really shines through in the collaboration this year with the addition of our men’s styles to reinventing our adaptive intimates,” Kardashian said of the collection in a statement.

Ringing in the collaboration’s return, the Greg Swales-shot campaign stars Olympians and Paralympians, including gymnast Sunisa Lee, track and field stars Fred Kerley, Nick Mayhugh and Gabby Thomas, and swimmers Jessica Long and Caeleb Dressel. On a Team USA red set, each athlete carries the American flag in a pose that nods to their respective sport.

Y-3 Outfitted the Japan Football Association with Jerseys and Culturewear

Building on its boundary-pushing sportswear lineup, Yohji Yamamoto and adidas’ Y-3 label joined forces with the Japan Football Association to create a slew of on-pitch kits and “culturewear.”

The line includes a blue flame “Home” jersey, which was leaked earlier this month, as well as a white and red “Away” kit, which includes matching shorts in both colors. The off-pitch range, meanwhile, adopts similar motifs on long-sleeve pre-match jerseys, reversible souvenir jackets, scarves and more.

The full lineup will become available via adidas CONFIRMED on July 1.

Nike’s Stock Price Fell Drastically Amidst Disappointing Q4 Earnings

On Friday, Nike’s shares fell by over 20%, after the company announced disappointing financial results for the fiscal 2024 Q4.

The sportswear giant reported revenues of $12.6 billion USD in the period, which fell short of analysts’ expectations of $12.84 billion USD by 2%. The sum was also down from last year’s report, which included revenues of $12.8 billion USD. The news is only the latest slip for the brand, which has seen its stock price fall by 13% since January.

Additionally, Nike projected that its sales would decline by 10% in the current quarter. Analysts had previously estimated that the company’s sales would fall by 3%, so the brand’s much larger projection led to a more significant decline in shares.

JW Anderson Celebrated Pride With a Pigeon-Inspired Capsule

On Tuesday, JW Anderson dropped off a Pride collection that felt entirely aligned with the namesake designer’s universe.

Pigeons flock all over the collection, which includes a slew of illustrative tees, tanks, sheer tops, polos, sweatshirts, swim trunks and more. The line’s slogan — “Won’t you be my pigeon? Chirp loud. Live Proud.” — sums up Anderson’s campy MO for this year’s Pride month.

The central bird appears alongside illustrations from artist Pol Anglada, which picture gay couples kissing in front of the JW Anderson store during a Pride celebration.

Bella Hadid Became the New Face of Saint Laurent

Bella Hadid became the latest face of Saint Laurent this week, appearing in her first-ever campaign for the House. Shot by Gray Sorrenti, the sartorial imagery pictures the new-age supermodel in sheer white dress with a lace collar and a black belt. A fur coat is thrown over her, while she lays back on a satin pink bed.

Earlier this year, Hadid pulled up to the Cannes Film Festival in a transparent Saint Laurent dress, hinting at a stronger connection with the high-fashion label. Learn more about the campaign here.
