While the rest of us are still mulling over the Spring ’14 collections, which debuted on runways only weeks ago, Fendi is already looking ahead to Spring ’15. Sure, it may seem a little early to start thinking about what we’ll be wearing more than a year from now, but the house has a good reason for the jump-start. Today, Fendi announced that it will release a Spring ’15 capsule collection with eyewear designer Thierry Lasry (left), who’s best known for his hypersleek, sexy shades. The partnership marks Lasry’s first collaboration with a luxury fashion house. Between this, its buggy bags, and Spring ’14′s Delfina Delettrez-designed jewelry (remember those furry little ear cuffs?), we’d say Fendi is seriously upping its cool factor.
Some things in life really are black and white—like the style set’s color palette of choice. From Tommy Ton’s street-style snaps to the latest Spring ’14 runways, black and white remains a foolproof, timeless sartorial formula. At Balmain, Olivier Rousteing whipped up oversized black and white houndstooth checks and quilted jackets; J.W. Anderson played with whisper-thin gossamer; and Giambattista Valli sent out tiny crop tops and molded, flowerlike skirts. Since spring is a bit far off, we’re looking forward to making a graphic statement with cool-weather staples like slouchy knits and flat boots.

Last night in Paris, Acne presented its Spring ’11 menswear, a collection inspired by creative director Jonny Johansson’s fond memories of disco-blasting school dances. (“In my teens, I would travel to these summer dances in remote halls in the Swedish countryside,” he recalls in the show’s notes, ” ’cause that’s what you do.”) The collection itself includes pieces that should cause, as they say, panic in the disco—leather overalls for the hard-partying butcher’s apprentice among us—but just as notable were the sunglasses, a collaboration with France’s Thierry Lasry. Three square-framed styles—an oversized, mirrored version, and two smaller frames with an avant-garde electronica slant—are handmade using Mazzucchelli plastics. “Sunglasses were always the most important disco accessory,” Johansson writes philosophically. And, since they’re reflective, “you can check your makeup is pushed to the max!”
