BOSS is collaborating with sportswear brand Russell Athletic
Earlier this week, BOSS piqued the interest of athleisure fans (and literally everyone else getting through lockdown in the comfiest attire) by announcing that it’s joining forces with sportswear brand Russell Athletic for a collection that will come out next March. “Casualization is an important element in our BOSS collections, so it’s the perfect time to partner with a pioneer in this field,” Hugo Boss’ Chief Brand Officer, Ingo Wilts, said in a press release. “Russell Athletic invented the sweatshirt almost 100 years ago, and it has been a great experience to work with a brand that has such a heritage and expertise in sportswear.” Adding a touch of cultural cache to the collaboration, publisher and creative agency Highsnobiety has been tapped to produce its campaign.
You have one week left to order your Holiday BlingBox by Lofttan
For those planning their local-focused gift list for the year, accessory brand Lofttan is taking orders of its unique offering, the Holiday BlingBox, until Sunday, November 1st. The set boasts a handmade necklace and pair of earrings created with interchangeable options; for example, the earrings can be taken apart to become a smaller style.
A purchase of the BlingBox–which sees a portion of proceeds go to the Lydia Ruth Fund founded by Lofttan’s owner and lead designer, April Mitchell-Boudreau, in honour of her great-grandmother–also features the opportunity to have a one-hour Zoom call with Mitchell-Boudreau to learn about her craft and the multiple ways that the pieces can be worn. “With my Indigenous roots and experience being a mother, wife, friend and human on this beautiful planet–I know it is important not only to allow our customers the opportunity to express themselves creatively, through playing with the jewelry, but also create a product that has a conscious,” said Mitchell-Boudreau in a statement. “Less waste, focused on slow fashion and convertible–the BlingBOX is something that will never go out of style. And, with every purchase we will donate part of the proceeds to a Fund that focuses on providing scholarships in the Arts for Indigenous students–as we truly believe in the healing powers of the Arts.”
