Jimmy Choo collaborating with Naoko Takeuchi for the love of manga

Jimmy Choo’s creative director Sandra Choi honored the Japanese shojo (girl’s) manga series illustrated and written by Naoko Takeuchi named Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon with an exclusive collaboration for its 30th anniversary. The capsule collection has been created around their shared values of bold individuality, zeitgeist-defining imagery and female empowerment and is embedded within every pair of Jimmy Choo shoes. The capsule collection includes 5 different styles of shoes, each one named after the key characters – the ‘Sailor Guardians’ – of this manga phenomenon. Sailor Moon are knee-high stretch style boots.  Sailor Mercury, glossy leather ankle-boots with a pragmatic and energetic platform sole. Sailor Mars are red pumps with sharply pointed vamp and kick-heel. Sailor Jupiter are sturdy green lace-up leather combat boots with a rubber lug sole and block heel. Last but not least, platform high-heeled pumps with a slender ankle strap finished in vibrant orange satin and flecked with crystals capture have the name Sailor Venus. The mentor cat Luna is represented by an additional bag embellished with crystals and for those who don’t like to wear heels, a pair of sneakers and moccasins are available as well. 

To complete the collection, Jimmy Choo asked the DJ Honey Dijon and Vancouver based DJ/ Producer YuSu to create two original tracks inspired by Sailor Moon. The two exclusive house tracks, ‘Sun’ and ‘Moon’ are inspired by vaporwave sounds and transform just as the Sailor Guardians transform. A limited-edition vinyl will be availables as a gift with purchase, from select global pop-ups.

The Jimmy Choo x Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon collection will be exclusively available in Europe at Selfridges, from February 14th.

The Skinny Scarf Is Back and Better Than Ever for Spring

This time around, it’s a little more sophisticated.





2023 has been a year of seasonless dressing. Think about it: tights as pants, sheer dresses, underwear as outerwear, a lot of this winter’s viral trends pretty much ignore the fact that it’s 30-something degrees in most of the country. And with winter winding down, it follows that spring’s warm weather would bring about some equally off-kilter trends for the temperature. Case in point: the rise of the skinny scarf.

Bella Hadid in a skinny scarf

If your TikTok FYP looks anything like mine, you may have heard of last fall’s kooky “Frazzled English Woman” trend. An ode to messy layering, the aesthetic is all about embracing the rom-com side of Y2K fashion (aka dressing like your love interest is Colin Firth). In this iteration, the skinny scarf acts as quirky add-on to a frazzled outfit ideal for spilling coffee on yourself as you jaunt around in the fall splendor of your chosen backdrop. And while it’s not necessarily the warmest option, it does the trick in autumn temps—plus, part of its charm is its very impracticality.

This spring, the trend is back, but with a different attitude. 2023’s crop of skinny scarves are even more impractical, sporting even less coverage and coming in sophisticated fabrics rather than quirky knits. Think of it as the femme version of a tie: It’s there just to look good, nothing else. And while the Y2K era favored a—let’s just call it “random”—approach to styling, the 2023 version is undeniably chic, as celebs and it girls go with a matchy-matchy approach.

Kaia Gerber wearing a skinny scarf

Take, for example, the indie sleaze version of the look Celine sent down the runway on Kaia Gerber. Featuring sunnies, leather skinnies, a sharp tuxedo blazer, and a white tee, the gold skinny scarf is really the exclamation point on an otherwise classic outfit—it’s an outfit formula I’ve already seen pop up on my FYP on more than a few occasions. For a more ethereal version of the look, check out the about-to-go-viral bustier top featuring a built-in skinny scarf from Orseund Iris. With its blousy fabric and matching tube top (that’s two trends for the price of one), this skinny scarf set is giving Greek goddess, rather than harried heroine.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a 2023 trend without mentioning a cool-prep option for the Sporty Spices out there. There’s Bella Hadid’s horse girl version—in which she paired a checked jacket and tan blouse with skinny brows (bold) and a matching tan skinny scarf (even bolder)—if you’re feeling weird. There’s also plenty of inspiration from Miu Miu, a brand that’s spurred more viral trends than we can count in recent years (hello ballet flats, leg warmers, and micro minis). The brand’s fall 2022 collection paired crisp white tennis skirts, plenty of layers, and satin ballet slippers with a simple skinny scarf for that added bit of texture—and you can bet these styles will still be around come spring. 

Skinny Scarf on the Miu Miu Runway

When it comes to styling, think of this trend as an alternative (or addition to) your jewelry. It’s not necessarily there to stand out (or even really keep you warm). Go sophisticated and classic with your styling (rather than the loud more-is-more attitude of the ’00s) to keep it current. Think of a classic weekend formula like jeans and a tank top—a cool bomber jacket and a skinny scarf would add a bit of much-needed edge to the look. Or take a page out of the preppy handbook and pair an oversized v-neck sweater (we recommend a solid like navy, black, or white) with a contrasting skinny scarf to take a year-round staple to the next level.

In essence, this trend is about playfulness. While transitional weather continues to confuse and frustrate throughout March, this simple accessory can add a bit of fun to the classics we reach for this time of year. After all, the skinny scarf serves no purpose other than being cute and, as such, can take a “boring” look from forgettable to trendy in five seconds flat.

Hunter Schafer’s Oscars After-Party Look Consisted of a Single Feather

Everyone’s talking about the ‘Euphoria’ star’s revealing avant-garde outfit. Here’s what to know about Belgium’s Ann Demeulemeester, the label behind it.





It’s hard to imagine how a single feather could go viral. But then along came Hunter Schafer wearing a white leather one across her breasts at the Vanity Fair Oscars 2023 after-party.

RELATED: These Oscars After-Party Looks Were More Exciting Than the Show Itself

The top — which is more of a breast belt — was from the Ann Demeulemeester Fall 2023 collection which was unveiled exactly two weeks earlier in Paris. The Mugler fragrance model wore the piece with a white silk bias cut skirt.

Law Roach, the stylist who dresses Schafer’s Euphoria co-star Zendaya, chose the skin-baring look which was applauded on Schafer’s IG by Zendaya, Katy Perry, Julia Fox and Marc Jacobs. (P.S. if you missed FASHION’s cover story on Law Roach, you can find it here.)

Jennifer Lopez Has Carried This Constantly Sold-Out Bag for Years, and Now I Finally Get the Hype

It’s so soft and spacious.

Growing up, I remember my mom carrying her leather Coach crossbody bag everywhere. As for me, opening a Coach wristlet for my 13th birthday was a shining moment. Needless to say, Coach has been a household name for years — especially in my own home — and the brand continues to create functional and eye-pleasing designs. Its go-to handbags have captured the attention of shoppers and celebs, including its brand ambassador, Jennifer Lopez.  

Recently, Coach sent me the Pillow Tabby Shoulder Bag 26 to try, which is the same style bag that J.Lo posed with in its previous campaign. I was excited to test out the bag that has graced Lopez’s Instagram, and I took every opportunity to wear this versatile accessory out and about — and it did not disappoint.

Not only is the Tabby shoulder bag just as luxe and buttery soft as I imagined it would be, it’s also practical, having more storage space than I expected. The fabric-lined interior contains three separate compartments made up of two open sections that are divided by a wide-zippered pocket. The separate spaces made it easy to grab essentials like my lip gloss and phone. I was even able to keep a snack bar and a pack of tissues in the bag with room to spare. I filled the zippered pocket with valuables like my wallet and keys. For peace of mind, I appreciate that all of my belongings were securely stored thanks to the sturdy snap closure.

The Tabby shoulder bag has an ultra-smooth leather exterior with Coach’s “C” emblem on the snap. Its simple yet sophisticated design makes it easy to wear with a casual look like jeans and sweater or to dress up a midi skirt and camisole. It also comes with a wide strap, so I had the option to swap out the comfy, short shoulder strap and use it as a crossbody instead. The bag came along for all my weekend plans from a birthday party to a quick market run. I even styled it like Lopez did in her campaign with Coach last spring and wore the bag with joggers and a crewneck sweatshirt to grab a coffee.

It’s no surprise that shoppers raved about this celeb-worn bag. One reviewer said the inner lining of their Tabby bag “feels so rich,” adding that the color of the leather is “heavenly.” Another shared that they “feel so confident” when they wear this bag, and that the design is “timeless.” A third described it as “useful” and “playful,” noting that the Tabby style “makes a statement.” 

Head to Coach to grab this Jennifer Lopez-worn bag and more styles from the Tabby Collection. Trust me, it’s worth the hype.
