Mansur Gavriel x VEJA
New York-based luxury house Mansur Gavriel has partnered with the French sneaker brand VEJA for a limited capsule collection.

If you’re into dopamine dressing or monochromatic looks, this one’s for you.
Yitty by Lizzo
Lizzo is the latest celebrity to get into the fashion game. With Yitty, her newly-announced shapewear brand, the singer-songwriter wants to change the industry when it comes to inclusivity. Each item was designed to celebrate everybody. “Instead of thinking about size in this linear way, we’re thinking about it on a spectrum where everyone is included,” Lizzo said of the new collection. “Everyone’s size is just their size. It’s not high, it’s not low. It’s not big, it’s not small. It’s just your size.” Items will be available in sizes XS to 6X.
Yitty will be quicking off its collections with three drops. “Nearly Naked” is a seamless everyday wear collection designed to shape and firm your natural curves. “Mesh Me” is a line of mesh styles that blend fashion with function and were designed to be worn as underwear or outerwear. “Major Label” is a collection of everyday lifestyle pieces.
Yitty launches on April 12th at 8 a.m. PST. Items will be available to shop on the brand’s website, as well as at Fabletics.
Heaven by Marc Jacobs
Marc Jacobs unveiled a new collection for Heaven, his ready-to-wear line that features streetwear designs. For Spring 2022, the designer took inspiration from '90s pop culture and delivered a collection of nostalgia-infused graphic t-shirts, fuzzy bodysuits, and cutting-edge accessories. The Pointelle Lace Dress ($295) is a lavender dream. The knitted dress features matching arm warmers and a ruffled hem and neckline—perfect for warmer days. You can also opt-in for the Punk Playground Scarf ($35), which features artwork by Claire Barrow, or go for the Doll Purse ($250) in baby blue, a hard-shell design that makes for a playful statement bag.
The collection was designed for all genders and features clothing from sizes S-XXL. All items are priced between $35 and $600. Heaven’s Spring 2022 collection is available to shop on the Marc Jacobs website.
Kim Kardashian’s label, Skims, expanded with a brand new swimwear line. The collection offers 19 mix-and-match styles in seven colorways, including the brand’s signature nude colors, as well as cobalt and periwinkle. Expect to find classic triangle bikinis, cutout monokinis, and swim cycle suits. The swim line also includes t-shirts (with both short or long sleeves), bicycle shorts, and beach skirts. Every item was designed to be worn both in and out of the water, so you won’t have to think about what to wear after your next swim session. The collection carries sizes XXS to 4X, with prices ranging from $32 to $108.
Kim Kardashian wanted inclusivity and comfort to be at the core of the swim line, which has been Skims’ through-line. “I know our customers have been wanting this from us for such a long time,” the 41-year-old mogul said to Harper's Bazaar. “We’ve really taken the time to make sure we’re offering the best solutions for our customers. Buying swimwear should be fun and easy, yet so many women feel daunted by it. I wanted to change that and make the process as simple as possible by providing a full Swim wardrobe—both for in and out of the water.”
Skims Swim is now available to shop on the brand’s website.

Lacoste x Awake NY
