This week in fashion brought to you by Gentle.

Bottega Veneta deleted all of their social media accounts in the midst of a pandemic – and the Internet is speculating: why? Odunayo  Ojo from ‚The Fashion Archive‘ is hesitant to agree with the theory that the brand will continue to operate offline, striving to be more exclusive. What he rather thinks is that it’s just a big marketing plot. “At the end of the day, they have to sell the Spring/Summer Collection that will be hitting stores.“ Our question is: Will it work? Odunayo made a video about it, the internet is speculating, we’re including it in our weekly news. It probably did?


Meanwhile, Martine Rose has found a way to present the new Spring/Summer collection that was truly striking. ‚What We Do All Day‘   is playing with existent formats, it is unexpected  as well as, most important: in line with the time in which we’re living right now. Isn’t that all we’re expecting from fashion houses today? The London based brand did not rely on a catwalk without an audience, neither on a fashion film, of which we have seen numerous in the last season. Instead, Rose constructed a virtual house together with the Creative Direction of theInternational Magic Group. Each door opens up to 24 personal films.

Raf met Miuccia. Publicly. In the New York Times. For all us fashion lovers, this has been a moment. Only in February 2020 (which feels like a lifetime ago), it has been announced that Raf Simons would join Prada as a co-designer and in September their first (women’s) collection named ‚Dialogues‘ was released. In the New York Times, the designers talk about working together and Raf Simons states the questions we have been asking ourselves too: Where is fashion going? Where do we think it should go? Why is there so much retro? What is new? Read their dialogue here.

Nancy Pelosi wore the same dress for both impeachment processes. Is there anything else to say?
