Fashion news of the week: Balenciaga objects, Kendrick Lamar and… – The Face


Deck the halls with Balenciaga Objects

On Wednesday, Brooke McCord, Digital Director at THE FACE, was spotted cooing over Balenciaga’s Objects line, a newly-launched range of products that includes a £615 lunchbox, beer coasters, a beer can candle holder and a very modest sofa. And for the four-legged babe in your life, a fluffy pink, heart-shaped dog bed, blanket and necklace with a personalised tag. A source close to McCord reports she was considering the spiked dog bowl.

Pierpaolo Piccioli takes his turn on Moncler’s Maya 70

Say ciao to Pierpaolo Piccioli, Moncler’s latest guest collaborator as part of the Italian house’s 70th birthday celebrations. Following on from Rick Owens, Valentino’s creative director sees a laid-back reimagining of the Maya jacket, but it’s by no means simple. I imagined a comfortable, relaxed, and nonchalant jacket in nylon laqué,” Piccioli says. Featuring padded squares joined together with fabric knots, its a proper feast for the eyes – made only better by veteran model Kristen McMenamy, who wears it in the campaign, and looks oh so bloody cool.

Moncler Maya 70 by Pierpaolo Piccioli is available to buy from 19th November.
