Spanish fashion brand Zara has unveiled a new capsule collection called, Zara Studio. The line includes premium designs with prices going up to $300 for a leather jumpsuit. Models Freja Beha Erichsen, Roos Abels and Mica Arganaraz star in the campaign.

When I sat down this week to meet Sara Hankin, who launched her brand Tosia two years ago, it was immediately clear that she is the kind of designer who lives and breathes her brand. With an old-school approach to design, Hankin, 29, offers modern, clean silhouettes that are thoroughly refreshing in today's more-is-more fashion landscape. (However, she's no luddite: for her latest collection, she sought out a Brooklyn-based tie-dye artist after discovering her work on Instagram.) Her designs have already been spotted on celebrities, including Margot Robbie and Alana Haim, and are carried by retailers including Assembly and Fred Segal. It's clear that this is only the beginning of a promising future for the New York-made brand.
Oscar de la Renta, Roberto Cavalli, Diane von Furstenberg, DKNY, Band of Outsiders — and now Marni is the latest fashion house whose founding designer is out.

Consuelo Castiglioni announced Friday that she is leaving the Italian brand she founded with her husband Gianni in 1994. The stellar spring 2017 collection she showed in Milan last month was her last, and a replacement has already been named: Francesco Risso joins from Prada where he's been since 2008 working on "women’s show collections and special brand endorsement projects," according to a release provide by Marni, which also notes that Castiglioni's departure was a "personal decision."

After months of speculation, the Metropolitan Museum of Art announced on Friday morning that its 2017 spring Costume Institute exhibit and gala will honor legendary Comme des Garçons designer Rei Kawakubo. This will be just the second spring exhibit in the museum's history to spotlight a living designer, the first being Yves Saint Laurent in 1973.
