While most of the chunky-sneaker fervour may have petered out last year, Moncler’s latest versions of its Leave No Trace high-tops show that the style is still relevant when done tastefully. Inspired by mountain hiking shoes but destined for city streets, the sneakers, featuring a knit insert with a large M, come in three new colour options. The highlight is a pair with a mix of blues punctuated by details in orange, red, yellow and green that is surprisingly easy on the eye. The other colours are pink lemonade and, perhaps more apt for sneakers named Leave No Trace, black.
Easy does it
Givenchy’s new Antigona Soft range proves that a bag does not have to resemble a briefcase to look masculine. Roomy with a charming floppiness, the Antigona Soft first appeared in Givenchy’s women’s pre-fall 2020 lookbook. Now, the style has been upsized (large and maxi models are available) and comes in coloured woven leather, black calfskin or wool printed with a Givenchy chain motif.
Hardly a news flash, but times are tough for fashion retail right now, especially if you’re an independent designer. To give local talents – such as veteran cheongsam designer Goh Lai Chan, jewellery brand Carrie K and womenswear label Ginlee Studio (pictured) – an online platform from which to sell their wares, the Textile and Fashion Federation of Singapore has launched a new multi-brand e-commerce website, One Orchard Store. There’s a pretty good list of womenswear, accessories and even children’s clothing brands right now, with more to come. www.oneorchard.store
