The fashion landscape is no stranger to surprises. Every now and then, the scene is met with something new—from directional changes on the executive level, jaw-dropping collaboration announcements or the buzzy news of a fresh celebrity face set to represent one of the luxury maisons. With some of such news, the sartorial realm is bound to be roused, as conversation is steered towards what the change might mean for the rest of the designer world. Up top, a change in creative directorship is inevitably the most palpable—where house codes and signature silhouettes might discover reinterpretation in the hands of a new captain. The most recent of the lot? Peter Do taking the helm at Helmut Lang and Sabato De Sarno’s appointment at Gucci, both of whom showed their debut collections during last year’s spring/summer 2024 season.
In other cases, the fashion-forward will find themselves stirred by happenings closer to the ground—in terms of what they can admire, collect and own in their very own wardrobes. This might include the most covetable of collaborations—each one drawing in their own enthusiasts from various corners of culture. 2023 saw a multitude of celebrity-led collabs such as Dua Lipa x Versace for the La Vacanza collection, and the Skims x Swarovski joint move, where Kim Kardashian demonstrated her fashion prowess.
Amidst the buzz of affairs as of late, it’s inevitable that you might have missed out on some significant drops and announcements over the past few weeks. Not to fret however, for with Vogue Singapore’s roundup, you can consider yourself all caught up. We’re starting the year strong; within the week, we’ve been met with some viral-worthy campaigns—led by some of 2023’s biggest names of course. Pamela Anderson, for one, is a vision of feminine strength in Proenza Schouler’s spring 2024 campaign. Meanwhile, The Bear actor Jeremy Allen White has sent the internet into a frenzy with his latest stills for Calvin Klein.
Catch up on all the fashion news to know, below.

Pamela Anderson is the star of Proenza Schouler's spring 2024 campaign
It’s a new era for Pamela Anderson. Running on the back of her viral make-up free appearance at Paris Fashion Week last year, Proenza Schouler has tapped into the 56-year-old’s season of renewal and cast the model-personality for the brand’s latest spring 2024 campaign. Lensed by Davit Giorgadze, Anderson channels bold femininity through her poses—a portrait of calm, collected strength when combined with her clean, pared-back beauty. Shot against a plain background, the garments stand out in their own right; running the gamut from strongly-shouldered blazers, pops of colour and bouts of interesting texture displayed via a netted maxi dress and fuzzy separates.

Pharrell Williams's debut collection for Louis Vuitton finally hits stores
Pharrell Williams’s debut menswear collection for Louis Vuitton has officially been launched in stores, since its first unveiling in Paris last June. Combined with the star power of its front row at that time—think the likes of Rihanna, Zendaya, Beyoncé and Jay-Z—the collection’s release has also been packaged together with a campaign featuring basketball star LeBron James. In high hopes for strong commercial success, the luxury brand has also decidedly opted for splashy activations all around the world, from a visually-appealing Damier takeover at its flagship on Fifth Avenue in New York City to a complete makeover of its pop-up space in Seoul.

The date is set—Dior’s men’s show for its pre-fall 2024 collection has been penned in for 23 March. It had previously been decided that the show will be unveiled in Hong Kong, a growing hub for luxury fashion considering Louis Vuitton’s show was also held in the cosmopolitan city last November. Moving away from its usual tradition of showing in December, Kim Jones’s latest vision will instead join a flurry of other buzzy schedules set to unfold during that period of the year, such as Complex Con Hong Kong and the Art Basel Hong Kong Fair.

Lensed by Mert Alas, White struts about in his Calvin Klein Underwear, whilst eating an apple or two, the latter a cheeky nod to his standout role as Carmy in The Bear.
