Release Date: November 15

Inspired by Maria Grazia Chiuri‘s Fall/Winter 2019 show for Dior, this homeware collection brings to life a distinct English appeal for the French luxury house. Designed by Cordelia de Castellane, it comprises of glasses, carafes, plates, cutlery, linen and more, in a color palette of red, black and white. In terms of graphics, the range flicks between traditional card suits like hearts and spades as well as Dior’s checkered pattern in the same hues.
Tyler, The Creator has been somewhat of a longtime collaborator of Converse with his GOLF le FLEUR* line and now the artist is adding to new sneakers to the lineup – a Chuck 70 and a Gianno. The Chuck 70 has a pastel pink upper with the GOLF le FLEUR* text logo wrapped around the back in baby blue Chenille and an embroidered yellow outline. The Gianno, a reimagined take on a retro hiking silhouette, is also dropping in three colorways: tan, black/burnt orange/blue and white/cream/turquoise. These kicks are ideal for those who are still keen to rock the ’90s wide skate shoe trend.
Release Date: November 16
Release Price: $160 USD, available at Nike.com.
Musician Travis Scott‘s latest collaboration with Nike is a take on the classic Air Force 1 silhouette dubbed, like his previous partnerships, “Cactus Jack.” Inspired by his childhood in Missouri City, Texas, the sneaker has a patchwork quilt-style finish with panels in differing colors and materials like corduroy, canvas, suede and leather forming the upper. In place of the laces, there’s a chunky, exposed zipper upon the tongue and a strap on the heel with a gold-toned button with “TX” engraved acts as a final nod to the rapper’s home state.
