Levi van Veluw for Hermès New York Fall windows
Dutch artist Levi van Veluw has again collaborated with luxury fashion house Hermès, this time designing window installations for its Madison Ave boutique in New York. Van Veluw created finely carved 3D wooden versions of Hermès’s famous silk scarves, turning each window into a geometric art-piece full of glamour and intricacy.

Emilio Pucci for illy
The Italian coffee company illy has launched its latest design collaboration in partnership with Italian fashion house Emilio Pucci. Famous for its geometric prints in kaleidoscopic colours, Pucci drew on its “Cities of the World” scarf designs from the late 1950s to inspire the coffee cup range. Each of the six designs represents an iconic fashion city from around the world.
