It’s hard for the everyman to keep tabs on just where those most coveted collections are available to shop. The luxury fashion landscape is a vast and sometimes hard-to-navigate space, but our mission to keep you plugged into the hottest new pieces has given us something of an upper hand in knowing where to source the next big thing.
Which is why here, we’re bringing you a selection of recent highlights at some of the luxury fashion e-commerce sites we frequent on the daily. Browsing new stock from the likes of everyone from Barneys and Farfetch to Montreal’s SSENSE and Florence-based Luisaviaroma, we’ve narrowed down the best new SS19 stock hitting respective online storefronts for your shopping ease.
Scroll on for the best of what’s new in luxury fashion retail.
Montreal’s SSENSE tends to be a first port of call for some of the collections we’re most excited about, with everything from new NSFW Carne Bolente to the absolute highlights from Craig Green‘s output.
Particular highlights for us in recent times, though, include its expansion of men’s jewelry offerings, with grails coming from the likes of Tokyo label Ambush (peep the gold-toned Nobo Clip earing in our selection above and try not to drool).
Another label that has us excited at SSENSE right now is Jacquemus. You’ll no doubt have seen the French designer’s meme-worthy tiny bags all over Instagram of late, but its neck pouches for men have fast emerged as a summer wardrobe essential, while the rest of its early apparel for men is giving us serious SLP vibes.
Italian technical-wear brand Nemen is really stepping up its game recently, and the latest stock on Browns is a testament to that. Building on the range of nylon windbreakers we fell in love with last season, its newest pieces include acid print evolutions of its signature piece along with a particularly interesting lightweight kimono-style piece.
Meanwhile, for those who obsess over Matthew Williams’ 1017 ALYX 9SM designs, Browns is the place to go for the latest crocodile-print designs. Along with those amazing printed hiking boots with attachable Vibram harness, you’ll find a fleece, chest bag, and leather jacket along with the brand’s more monochrome, utilitarian pieces.
The men’s offering on Farfetch is so vast, it’s hard to know where to start. And though we could take you through the A-Z of brands we love on its online storefront, let’s start with the fashion house monogram on everyone’s shopping list, “FF”.
The popularity of high fashion’s all-over logo prints comes in waves, but Fendi has been killing it so far in 2019 and that popularity shows no sign of abating any time soon. Highlights to hit Farfetch this month include elasticated track pants, a bucket hat, and several dope leather bags.
Other “New In” pieces to have caught our eye this month include some multicolored track pants by Japanese label Kolor and an ALYX bag with some serious additional hardware in the form of an oversized carabiner.
And if those high-ticket items don’t quite fit into your shopping budget this month, worry not. Up until the end of March, Farfetch is offering 20 percent off full-price and sale FW18 stock with the code X20FAR.
Anyone looking for staple menswear to stand the test of time should surely be taking to MR PORTER for their shopping needs this month. Don’t get us wrong, the luxury fashion platform is teeming with steezy streetwear, but it’s pieces like the chic Norse Projects overshirt above that are at the top of our shopping agenda for our transitional wardrobe.
But perhaps more interesting than its menswear this month is the recent stock of new collectible skate decks. The Skateroom’s boards feature works from contemporary artists, with new pieces available at MR PORTER featuring iconic works by Keith Haring, Andy Warhol, and Jean-Michel Basquiat.
More 1017 ALYX 9SM grails arrive at MATCHESFASHION.COM this month, including those Vibram-harness boots everyone is talking about as well as the tie-dye muscle-fit tops (set to be a bigger trend than you may think) from creative director Williams’ most recent collaboration with Nike.
But on the other end of the spectrum, MATCHESFASHION.COM remains one of the best places to shop for highly performant outdoor-focussed gear, with a great selection from brands such as Helly Hansen, and Wander, and Snow Peak. New pieces from the latter that are particularly appealing to us right now include Snow Peak’s Takibi jacket, made with fire-resistant aramid that’s more often used in aerospace attire thanks to its intense durability.
Florence-based luxury and contemporary fashion destination Luisaviaroma’s March additions include some pieces that were added to cart in record time among Highsnobiety staffers. The one our bank balance isn’t so happy with is the new season Burberry trench coat, but cost per wear, this elevated take on what the label does best is going to pay for itself.
Investment piece aside, some serious summer essentials have also caught our eye at Luisaviaroma recently, including a steezy, retro Bermuda headband from OG brand Kangol, along with some super on-trend sports sunglasses by Italia Independent in collaboration with Billionaire Boys Club, which are giving Oakleys a real run for their money.
This month Barney’s has been taken over by some of the boldest style trends of SS19. From the whackier styles of Balenciaga and OFF-WHITE to the still glowing neon trend being seen in new output from Prada, Maison Margiela, Gucci, and Dries Van Noten. If you’re looking to make a statement, this is where to do it.
