New in Luxury, Presented by MATCHESFASHION is a collaborative series in which we guide you through the latest arrivals in the world of luxury fashion, sneakers, and accessories. The London-based retailer is a go-to for its curation of the world’s biggest and best fashion labels, and you’ll find our joint-effort monthly selections in the hub here.
Summer is pretty much here, and that means we’re going a little lighter on the garments and footwear this month. Warmer weather means linen, sandals, and of course, sunnies, are all on the agenda. The best ones come courtesy of the likes of Birkenstock x Proenza Schouler, MYKITA, and Our Legacy, which all feature in our list below.
It can be hard to keep tabs on new high-end arrivals, but ourselves and MATCHESFASHION are here to help. So, without further ado, we’ll let you get shopping May’s best pieces.
Scroll on for May’s best in luxury fashion.
Acne Studios Track Top
Need a top that’ll allow you to complete a quick jog on the way to meeting friends for drinks without changing? This neat track by Acne Studios will let you just do that. A truly versatile item.
Many believe that shorts are not to be worn by adults. But they’re wrong. It’s all about how you wear them. This sleek and simple pair by Casablanca would go well with a silk shirt and a pair of more formal shoes.
Birkenstock x Proenza Schouler Sandals
This season, we’ve already been treated to more than a few standout sandals, but the Birkenstock x Proenza Schouler collab collection is my personal favorite. The best one, hands down, is this black and white colorway. Have colors ever gone so well together?
Marni Print Shirt
Marni creative director Francesco Risso used the label’s SS20 runway show to shine a light on the fashion industry’s role in environmental pollution. This Cuban collar piece from the collection, dressed with a tree print, is your summer statement shirt with extra statement.
Our Legacy Linen Top
Linen shouldn’t only be reserved for your shirt rotation during summer, and this linen top by Our Legacy says so. Inspired by skate and punk aesthetics, this is another fine example of Our Leg spinning classic looks with its unique modern interpretation and use of materials.
Celebrating famed Ibiza boutique Paula’s, which seems sadly very out of reach right now, Jonathan Anderson and Loewe’s wild jeans are a nod to the island’s laid-back and bohemian credentials.
Rick Owens Sandals
Not the first, nor the last, sandal selection this month. And who cares? It’s summer. If you’re serious about your sandal, then this beefed-up platform option by king-of-subversion Rick Owens might be one for you.
If you haven’t invested in your set of summer sunnies yet, I’d recommend considering these by MYKITA before doing so. Crafted in Germany and coming with a wooden-like appearance, these are a testament to the fact that large frames will probably never die.
Bianca Saunders Trousers
Tailoring has taken some welcomed unexpected turns over the past few years and these split-cuff pants are another example of exactly that. This is the future of genderless dressing.
Birkenstock 1774 Sandals
Another one from Birkenstock, but simply too good to emit on the basis of duplication. This all-white colorway from its 1774 range is super clean and the ideal footwear choice for sophisticated summer evenings. Just please don’t wear them anywhere dirty.
