Joseph Altuzarra first discovered the work of groundbreaking queer photographer Alvin Batrop over 10 years ago and remains struck by its poignancy and power. So for his first capsule collection for his genderful label ALTU, the designer paid tribute to the late visionary with pieces that memorialize Baltrop's work — known for his Piers series and portrayal of underground and queer '70s and '80s New York culture. Proceeds from the sale of this capsule will be allocated towards the preservation of thousands of never-before-seen images.

Tribute Brand's New Platform and PUNK

Tribute Brand's edgy and cyber-y digital clothes went viral when it launched in 2020, and now the company is entering its next phase of growth with the debut of a new platform that will host many different brands (in house and partners) with product, user journey and curation at the center in an effort to onboard the physical fashion crowd into web3.
PUNK is their first showing of that. Inspired by the Victoria’s Secret PINK brand, PUNK holders will have access to three assets: $PUNKY, a 3D digital downloadable creature, based on the PINK plush toy brand mascot; a redeemable NFC chip-enabled physical PUNK tracksuit; and a PUNK typeface, a generative, unique-to-holder logo that can be used as a PFP. Physical items are expected to ship early 2023.

Calvin Klein and Palace's buzzy collab that dropped in April is back with a limited restock for the holidays.

The brands tapped singer Ethel Cain, actress Uma Thurman, actor Michael Imperioli and rapper Roddy Ricc for a film celebrating the release.
For Moncler's ongoing Genius project, Palm Angels creative director Francesco Ragazzi put his own stamp on two of Tod's classic footwear styles: the Gommino driving loafers, which are rendered in flame and intarsia prints; and the W.G. lace-up ankle boot given a winter touch with palm tree Moncler logo.

Mowalola and MGA have reimagined two distinct Bratz Collector dolls — Jade and Felicia — who wear unique pieces designed exclusively for this collab including sky-high platform boots, a boho-bag, custom eyewear and two ready-to-wear looks.
"Growing up as a tomboy in Lagos, Nigeria, I have always been fascinated by Bratz dolls with their extreme beauty, looks, and out-of-this-world-fashion," said Mowalola Ogunlesi. "This collaboration with the brand gave me the opportunity to re-examine the ideals of beauty and femininity and how I could bring Bratz into my world and make them reflect my own ideas of beauty."
