Samsøe Samsøe expands its unisex line with wanderlust-inducing T-shirts
Building on the brand’s unisex capsule collections, for pre-autumn 2022, Samsøe Samsøe partners with three European illustrators to create three wanderlust-inducing tees. In the past, the unisex collection has included software and poplin sets, but this season the brand’s loose cotton T-shirt with a crew neck acts as a blank canvas for female artists to pay homage to their origins. Take Italian Martina Lorusso, whose pop-inspired art takes shape as an ode to Milan. Or Farah Alimi – an illustrator and painter based in Marseille, France – whose painterly embroidered T-shirt gives a glimpse into Syria and Damascus’s rich culture where she was born. Finally, Copenhagen-based Stine Jensen’s pencil drawings show us a bouquet of lilacs and a “Københavnerstang”, a classic Danish ice cream.
The capsule will be released on the 28th of April, available on samsoe.com

Elle Fanning paid homage to Marlene Dietrich at the SAG awards
During the 28th Screen Actors Guild Awards, Elle Fanning – nominated for her portrayal of Catherine the Great in The Great – paid homage to Old Hollywood. Embodying silver screen starlet and famous fashion non-conformist Marlene Dietrich in a Gucci ensemble with menswear connotations, the starlet's look reflected the early champions of subversive fashion who challenged gender norms in the 1930s and 1940s. In wide-legged trousers embellished with beads – giving them almost a pinstripe effect – a sheer peach blouse, with silk waistcoat and a bowtie, the menswear take on red-carpet style was a breath of fresh air among the many gowns.
