Simon Porte Jacquemus followed up last year’s lavender-field phenomenon with another catwalk show that swiftly went viral. The L’Amour collection (dedicated to the hard-working Jacquemus team) was presented in front of 100 socially distanced guests, in a dreamy wheat field one hour from the centre of Paris. Models walked the 600m wooden runway wearing a romantic assemblage of soft whites, beiges, navy, greys and pastels, with details of Picasso motifs and structured cut-outs.

In a 12-hour live stream from the Palazzo Sacchetti in Rome, Gucci takes us behind the scenes of their Epilogue collection. Epilogue marks the dénouement of creative director Alessandro Michele’s three-part “fairy tale”, described as a ‘trilogy of love’ – a radical break away from fashion’s traditional rules and a move towards a more liberated mode of creative production. Watch the on-site crew turning Michele’s vision into reality – a process that promises to be just as mesmerising as the final product.
