Style findings: dispatches from the Wallpaper* fashion team

According to Woolrich, fashion and music share a common history. 20 years after her iconic solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, the renowned musician makes her first step in fashion with a capsule collection highlighting the brand’s American heritage and continuing its ‘American Soul’ series. As part of the three outerwear pieces on offer, the neo-soul artist has reworked the red buffalo check Silverton coat with an original, black and white screen print showing a picture of herself on a spiral background, and a bold typeface on the side. With all benefits going to the MLH Foundation, it’s a fashion purchase good for the soul.

Staples for the soul
17 October

Fendi’s famed double ‘F’ logo was designed by Karl Lagerfeld in 1965, and its tessellating letter print has become synonymous with the Roman label. But for its A/W 2018 women’s show, Fendi tipped its logo heritage on its head, debuting a collection featuring a reappropriated version of the ‘Fendi/Fila’ logo created by Instagram artist @hey_reilly. Now, the label has taken this logo fascination on step further with the launch of ‘Fendi Mania’, a collection of eye-catching ready-to-wear and accessories emblazoned with the mashed up type face. We’ll be holding onto this clutch bag all season. It’s a sublime blend of sportswear-meets-luxury and a practical hands-free piece too.

Fendi fusion
16 October

Last autumn, we celebrated the launch of art-led Cologne-based label Speaking Garments, which debuted with a range of sweatshirts and tees in collaboration with the German sculptor Michail Pirgelis. Now, the brand has collaborated with the Cologne-located painter Jan-Ole Schiemann, whose work is currently on view at of Frieze 2018, as part of the Almine Rech Gallery’s Early 21st Century Art exhibition. The collaboration has culminated in a limited 100-edition run of sweatshirts, mesh jackets, hoodies and t-shirts, emblazoned with an abstract figurative print. We think it’s time you invest in a piece of wearable art.
