A First Look At Pierre By Balmain, Tom Ford Hits Harrods, Raquel In Brazil, And More…


Affordable Balmain—a contradiction in terms? There’s no evidence to suggest that the label’s four-figure tattered tees are going anywhere, but for the slightly more cash-strapped, the company is introducing Pierre Balmain, a lower-priced, younger-skewing collection for men and women, made in partnership with Ittierre. Set to launch in the spring in 700 stores worldwide, the collection includes a mix of dresses, knitwear, leathers, and jeans (equipped with the label’s signature sparkles and studs, we hope). Your first peek is above. [Balmain]

Tom Ford’s first U.K. womenswear boutique opened in Harrods today, opposite Gucci. Though there’s only ready-to-wear in the space right now, Tom Ford shoes, bags, and jewelry are coming soon. [Vogue.U.K.]

Despite the summer heat, Brazilian supermodel Raquel Zimmermann continues to keep her cool. In a new “pulp cinema-inspired film” on, she shows off chic pieces from Brazilian design stars like Alexandre Herchcovitch, Andrea Marques, and Pedro Lourenço. [Nowness]

Gucci’s creative director, Frida Giannini, has shared an Italian style guide with Details on where to eat, shop, and take in breathtaking views. Of her favorite romantic spot, the Ponte Vecchio, she says, “It’s so breathtaking at sunset that you forget your sense of time.” [Details]
