Full Guide to All Fashion Collaboration in Fall 202109.11.2021
- Burberry x GOAT
Burberry has formed an exclusive partnership with an unanticipated group. Eight new versions of the iconic Burberry Arthur sneaker were released by the English brand, e-commerce/resale sneaker site GOAT and English apparel website GOAT at the beginning of November. Exclusively available on GOAT, the footwear is available in a variety of colorways for men and women, including pistachio and silver. Some styles feature chain detailing, a nod to the British punk scene that Riccardo Tisci, Burberry’s chief creative officer, first explored while at Central Saint Martins in London. Go to goat.com to learn more and shop the capsule.
- Anna Sui x Batsheva
Chase Sui Wonders may be an actress and a part-time cartoonist, but now the Genera+ion star is able to add delivery girl to that list. Sui Wonders stars in the campaign for Anna Sui, her aunt’s collaboration with Batsheva Hay. Sui Wonders is seen in Manhattan’s garment district in clothes from the collection. The ruffled peasant blouses are reminiscent of Anna Sui and feature floral prints in ’90s-esque florals–a Batsheva signature touch. Sui Wonders is responsible for delivering a spool from Sui to Hay’s workshop. But she often gets lost. You can see a few prairie-inspired looks and head over to annasui.com for more information.

- Moose Knuckles x Telfar
On September 12, during the last day of New York Fashion Week, Telfar held a mock press conference to announce Telfar. TV–naturally, the debut involved an arty, DIY commercial made by Telfar, which included footage of the designer Telfar Clemens, his friends and models, chatting inside a spare room with black leather stands and walls of mirrors. That footage would be used to promote the brand’s latest product, an outerwear capsule by Canadian label Moose Knuckles. This 17-piece collection features key pieces that are synonymous with Telfar’s NYC roots: fur-lined puff coats with the Telfar logo, a reinterpreted Telfar bag and a thick headband. The line, which serves as an ode to New Yorkers, will be available for purchase on mooseknucklescanada.com and TELFAR.net in November.
- Louis Vuitton’s Artycapucines Collection

You can choose from four different color options: cyan, blue, tulip, and mimosa yellow. Fendi is following the mini-bag trend and has included Nano Peekaboo charms in its capsule. Multicolored strap add-ons are also available for personalization.
- Zayn x Arnette
After his 2017 capsule collection with Versus Versace, Zayn Malik will once again be dipping his toes in the collaborative design world with an Arnette sustainable eyewear line. The collection is inspired by Malik’s artwork, which he has shared on social media from time to time. However, the focus of the product itself is sustainability. These pieces are made from bio-based materials and not traditional petroleum-based plastics. Five designs are available in multiple colors. Many of the pieces have an updated look that reflects the ’90s. Malik said that the Drophead is her favorite design. It takes an iconic shape and gives it a modern update. This collection is now available.
- Gucci 100 Pop-Ups
How can you celebrate the centennial anniversary of an iconic brand? A party is the best way to celebrate. Alessandro Michele, Gucci’s creative Director, commemorates the milestone by combining fashion and music. He refers to the second as “The only media, apart from fashion, that is more responsive to the times which mutate and mark them now, the today, and tomorrow.” The Gucci 100 collection is both tribute to the house and the artists who have named-checked it in songs. To celebrate the anniversary collection, there are a number of celebratory pop ups being held around the world. You can find out where the nearest one is and to shop the collection before it goes away at gucci.com.
