Sensuality and reflection: Naomi Sharon drops 'Celestial'

Arriving as a double single, Naomi Sharon's Another Life / Celestial hits like a quiet storm, effortlessly consuming the listener with its enticing soul-infused production and angelic vocals. The Dutch Caribbean artist has been on our radar as a modern-day star of truly heartfelt RnB for a hot minute, and as she becomes the first female artist to sign with Drake's OVO Sound, we hope that this new chapter will fully cement Sharon's presence on the scene. And with every new chapter, of course, there is new music.

Patta takes us to the tropics: SS23

The only thing that could brighten up Amsterdam's gloom in the midst of dark winter days is a new Patta drop! This season, our fav homegrown brand does it quite literally – with their Surinamese heritage as the main inspiration, their latest collection is a colourful ode to tropical seasons and handcrafted aesthetics. Incorporating techniques like woodlock stamps, lino prints, shibori and crochet onto signature silhouettes of oversized denim and cosy fits, Patta once again build up on their staples to deliver streetstyle pieces ideal for any occasion.

Constantly drawing from and reconstructing its own abundant heritage, Prada seem to outdo themselves every time they strike with a new drop. The reimagined Moon bag is no exception, as the beloved crescent shape that defined the brand's early 2000s receives a contemporary makeover – with a more rebellious attitude.

Lazoschmidl AW23: Fruit, Flowers, Fluoride

A fateful artistic union between Josef Lazo and Andreas Schmidl birthed Lazoschmidl – the pair's rebellious child that integrates literature and fashion in its imaginative exploration of body politics. Their latest collection, which made its way to the official PFW schedule, constructs (and deconstructs) its own hierarchy of basic needs, where the themes of health, beauty and survival all float across workwear-inspired overalls, laced-up joggers and tight tank tops. Titled Fruit, Flowers, Fluoride, the narrative is poetic in its playfulness, as the AI-generated melted design invite us to 'taste the forbidden fruit' – a leitmotif of the brand.

Old Gucci is the New Gucci: MFW

Like a rebellious teenager, Gucci has been through many phases. Like a wise grandparent, Gucci has adopted and integrated these phases into one harmonious, sentimental narrative. For the opening of Milan Fashion Week, Gucci presented a collection that reads like an exciting game of ping pong (if there is such a thing) between its eventful past and bright future, resulting in a nostalgic journey right to the nucleus of the fashion house's identity. Adapting "improvisation as methodology", the brand's in-house designers look to references from 80's Gucci's sportswear, early 2000's motorcycle aesthetic, Tom Ford's cut-knees era and Alessandro Michele's lavish approach, all reframed into the context of today.

Razor Sharp: Prada F/W '23

One of the core (and most fascinating) foundations of fashion has been its receptiveness – the ability to react to the social climate within which it's placed, while both impressing and challenging its audience. Throughout history, we've seen this notion explored in all sorts of extravagant ventures. This season, however, Prada anchors us back to the very basics, producing an eerily yet beautifully minimalist collection that channels the house's essence – intellectuality and taste. Titled Let's Talk About Clothes, the fabric becomes the language and the garments take on meaning, as Prada's voice flows into a manifesto of modern menswear.

ARIES baby

Lying within the highly sought-after intersection of streetwear and high fashion, ARIES is the UK-born and based brand giving 90's skate culture, new-age influences, and universal must-haves. The brand has become known for its genderless attitude to clothing with styles, silhouettes and accessories fit for most. With the uncomplicated approach typical of an Aries, they don't exhaust themselves on the details, but rather have created a collection that is simply good, and always wearable inspired by the lost movements of London's infamous sub-culture.

The collection is vibrant in structure and earth-bound in colour, reminiscent of the beach-side waves, with penetrating skate-culture influences within the pieces.

Navigating the realms of imaginative extreme pop sounds, Himera brings on their playful approach and turns the dancefloor into a sacred space between reality and fantasy. Still mentally stuck in that space, we caught up with the rising star to learn more about their journey in music, Latvian rave scene and the significance of cartoons and video games in their practice. Naturally, this has led us to the eternal existential question — if you could be any cartoon character, who would you be? Luckily, at Himera's sets there are no limitations.

Meet Wallice: the new indie pop icon

LA-born and bred, Wallice forges an alluring indie rock sound sprinkled with poignancy and humour of her own intriguing personality. Embodying the spirit of  a true indie artist, the musician spills her tongue-in-cheek lyrics over distorted synths and driving guitar hooks with confidence and ease. Wallice's music is a sharp, whimsical take on reality, as she mixes in references of the absurdity of Hollywood into the absurdity of young adulthood itself. In her last EP, 90s American Superstar, a project around an imaginary Hollywood celebrity, Wallice shows off her ability to create and then inhabit a character. This time, however, Wallice strips off the fiction, and looks inward in her new single Japan — a tender-hearted ode to her Father's homeland. Drenched in sentimentality and misty vocals, the track comes with a version in Japanese, as well as an equally dreamy video shot entirely on Super8. As Wallice is tracing back the mystery and the storylines of her own heritage, we are invited to tag along.
