Kaleidoscopic colours abound in Stella McCartney’s latest capsule collection, Stella Shared 3. Three young artists — Ed Curtis, Maisie Broome (Myfawnwy) and Tom Tosseyn — give the British brand a Club-kid twist as bold prints and patterns transform iconic Stella archetypes into Gen Z staples. If you need another reason to be excited, the unisex apparel is made entirely from sustainable materials.

Vancouver’s Sonya Lee and Toronto’s MDG Jewellery have come together to create a jewellery and handbag hybrid. According to the website, “this collaborative piece is a physical expression of the dynamism of both brands, designed to be a celebration of the power inherent to high-quality, female-led craftsmanship.” Inspired by MDG’s ‘Volute’ ring, the mini-purse is adorned with differently sized silver rings, making it a one-of-a-kind item.
Dolce & Gabbana add their luxury aesthetic to chocolate

Dolce and Gabbana have taken the phrase “La Dolce Vita” to a whole new level, thanks to their partnership with chocolatier Baci Perugina. The decadent dessert plays with flavours and textures as the soft gianduia centre, lemon-flavoured nibs and crunchy hazelnut are all coated in vanilla flavoured white chocolate. Be sure to unwrap the confection carefully as each praline features a note from Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.
Chloé x Fusalp will make you want to go skiing
Embrace the winter season like it’s 1979, courtesy of Chloé and Fusalp’s second capsule collection. The two French labels have once again joined forces to create stylized skiwear, consisting of an oversized colour-block cape, a structured monogram military jacket and various accessories. Featuring a mélange of colours, the palette echoes Fusalp’s retro aesthetic while alluding to the naturally feminine tones that are emblematically Chloé.
Vivek Shraya launches the Vivek Forever tee
The iconic Canadian multi-hyphenate Vivek Shraya has launched her first-ever T-shirt — available through Glass Bookshop — in celebration of her 20th art anniversary. The artist wrote on Instagram, “This is a really important milestone for me for so many reasons, but particularly because of how many barriers I have faced in every industry I’ve worked in and consequently, how many times I have second-guessed myself and my art, and have wanted to disappear. There have been fewer reasons to keep going and always more pressures to stop. But she persisted!”
