Week in Review: Braien Vaiksaar models the Zara x Barbie collection, Kwaku Ansong fronts Banana Republic’s summer 2023 campaign, and Cy Sandoval takes the spotlight for Abercrombie & Fitch’s Vintage Reissue collection.

Zara celebrates the new Barbie movie with an exclusive Kencore-inspired collection, showcasing a playful yet trendy outlook. The high-street giant continues to take bold strides in its collaborations, capturing the zeitgeist of fashion whimsy—meanwhile, Banana Republic’s summer 2023 campaign hones in on refined elegance.

The collection displays a keen attention to detail and a minimalistic approach, highlighting the importance of simple, classic pieces. Reflecting a similar trend, Abercrombie & Fitch is diving into the past with their Vintage Reissue collection, a nostalgic revisit to the 2000s, proving that what’s old is new again in the cyclical fashion world.

Vivienne Westwood’s fall 2023 campaign sees a return to Tintwistle, drawing inspiration from Westwood’s roots. Adding to this autumn’s fashion narrative, Jamie Dornan and Omar Apollo have been chosen to front Loewe’s latest campaign.

These influential figures lend their unique charisma to elevate the brand’s chic designs. Rounding off the fashion updates, H&M has joined hands with Levi’s to showcase denim inspirations. The partnership demonstrates how collaborations between established brands can reinvent familiar fabrics and styles.

Zara Edition’s fall 2023 collection introduces the theme of reconstruction. This creative direction points towards a future where reimagined classics stand at the forefront of fashion innovation. In contrast, Jil Sander’s resort 2024 collection boldly redefines the suit.

The new line pushes the boundaries of traditional formalwear, making a solid case for the evolution of workplace fashion. Finally, Loro Piana’s fall 2023 campaign explores the integration of luxury fashion into the every day, rethinking day-to-day wear and redefining the perception of style.
