Half a dozen models, displayed the collection that sought to redefine the abaya as a stylish overcoat suitable not just for Muslims but for women everywhere

Donning chic neck-to-toe abayas, models saunter in high heels around a swimming pool in a glitter-filled fashion show staged in the unlikeliest of places: Saudi Arabia. 

Haute couture displays are rare in the deeply conservative Muslim kingdom and have usually been restricted to women or avoided female models altogether — one even displayed dresses dangling from drones.

But a private event in Riyadh last weekend — which showcased a new collection of abayas, a billowy, figure-concealing robe — opened up to a small but mixed-gender audience

The men’s shows kicked off another season of digital presentations. Despite the continuing lockdown, the collections looked beyond knitwear and updated tracksuits. Yes, there were Zegna’s elevated chore jackets and those luxurious robe coats and pajama suits at Fendi, but these were beautiful pieces meant for those who want to be out and about. Take the golden embroidered coat that opened the Dior Homme show. Now that deserves a dinner out followed by a show at the theater and possibly a nightcap at the Carlyle. Creative director Kim Jones took cues from his predecessor Marc Bohan, who was the creative director of Dior from the 1960s through 80s, dressing Grace Kelly and collaborating with radical feminist artist Niki de Saint Phalle. Jones adorned his jackets with star buttons inspired by one of Bohan’s haute couture dresses from the 1960s and collaborated with Scottish artist Peter Doig.

Coach x Champion Is The Perfect Blend Of Fashion & Athleisure

Gregory P. Daily

These days, designer collabs are pretty much everywhere. It’s not surprising to hear of an upcoming Simone Rocha x H&M collection, or another round of STAUD x New Balance selling out. That said, a Coach x Champion collab is one I never saw coming—and I’m fully geeking out about it. Could a more 2021-friendly collection exist?

With last year behind us, many fashionistas are slowly gravitating from our well-worn sweatsuits to loungewear and athleisure pieces that feel slightly more chic. We still aren’t ready to commit to head-to-toe ~real clothes~, but we’re getting there! Not to mention accessorizing our dressed-down looks to the max to balance the lack of effort.

That’s why this collection just makes so much sense right now. Coach x Champion features tees, hoodies, joggers and of course, some gorgeous handbags, all of which can be worked into a “dressed-down, but still chic” 2021 fashion aesthetic with
