NOTES ON FASHION BY STEVEN HEMPEL BURBERRY'S LATEST ICON THE THIN RED LINE MR. JONES GOT A THING GOING ON T he latest signa- ture handbag from British f a s h i o n h o u s e Burberry takes inspiration from the architecture of the venue where it was launched. The Olympia L o n d o n a n d its distinctive curved barrel roof serve as the blueprint for creative director Riccardo Tisci's Olympia bag, launched at the Fall/ Winter 2020 show. The handbag features s u b t l e e x t e r n a l p o c k e t s a n d a n embossed logo. In three sizes: mini, small, and medium, and in a range of colors. $1,390 to $2,490, at t h e B u r b e r r y b o u t i q u e , L inea Rossa is Prada's response t o o u r d e s i re t o l o o k g o o d w h i l e m o v i n g fast. Engineered technical fabrics are streamlined but free-flowing, allowing for both men and women's fashion that's thin, lightweight, and waterproof. The Spring/Summer 2021 collection creates a palette of black, white, and gray with the signature red line, while a semi- translucent effect enhances Linea Rossa's sleek, futuristic look. The campaign echoes these notes. Set in skate parks around the globe, the stark white and red background highlights commonalities among skaters and riders across borders and around the world. This is clothing with an edge — and a message. At the Prada boutique. K im Jones launched his latest collection for Dior Men with the eye- catching Beachwear 2021 capsule. Never afraid of collaboration, this time he works with contemporary American artist Kenny Scharf, whose art explores utopian society and cosmic travel. The casual collection includes T-shirts, polos, shorts, bathrobes, and totes with Dior motifs employed liberally throughout. Blues and purples dominate the capsule, while technical fabrics, terry cloth, and engineered cottons give it a cool, summery feel. At the Dior boutique.
