Attention Rocketwomen, drop everything because your dream vintage-inspired collection has just landed and we’re obsessed. Cult-status brand Réalisation Par has teamed up with musical icon Elton John to release a 14-piece range rocking vintage tees, silk occasionwear, jumpsuits and embroidery.

UNIQLO UT NEO-MIYAGE Collection
With the Tokyo 2020 Olympics on the horizon, it’s no surprise that Japanese culture, creativity and heritage is set to be a significant influence in fashion this year. UNIQLO is ahead of the curve once again, celebrating a slew of acclaimed Japanese artists whose works are exhibited at NANZUKA gallery in Tokyo with their new collection of T-shirts, available to shop from February 17. Expect stunning geisha illustrations from Harumi Yamaguchi and a bold digital rendition of Tokyo Tower by Hiroki Tsukuda as some of the several designs available.
Adidas x IVY PARK
You’ve seen the ridiculous, enviable PR unboxings from celebrities as they crack into the life-size wardrobe of Queen Bey’s ENTIRE new collaboration with adidas. So stop feeling sad and score yourself an essential new piece to add to your athleisure rotation. Boasting magnificent maroon, orange and ecru colourways across workout gear, accessories and outerwear, you might struggle to walk away with just one item. Shop the staples here before they sell out.
Millie Bobby Brown x Converse
If bright colours, over the top embellishments and limited-edition designs are your vibe, then you’ve surely heard of 15-year-old Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown’s collabs with Converse. She dropped her second collection at the end of 2019, and we’re shook with shoe-envy at the loud colourways and nostalgic designs. While it sold out quick-fast, this duo seems to have a good thing going, so keep an eye out for future collabs here.
Nike x Off-White Graffiti-Print Training Collection
The latest in a slew of collaborations from winning combo Nike and Off-White’s Virgin Abloh is a bright, bold and energetic training range that will have you humming the ‘10s hit ‘Black and Yellow’ all the way to the gym. Slinging a series of leggings, biker shorts, sports tops, accessories and bags, expect bold contrasts of black and yellow accented by Off-White’s signature graphics.
