1. Nike Teams Up with Louis Vuitton's Menswear Pro
What: Nike is following up its collaboration with Balmain designer Olivier Rousteing with a travel-inspired capsule collection from Kim Jones, Louis Vuitton's artistic director of menswear. The result? A line of packable basics in club-kid neons tempered with neutrals.
When: Available starting July 23 at nike.com/nikelab and select NikeLab stores.
2. Solange Makes Dressing Like Her Easy
What: Earlier this summer, Solange Knowles's website Saint Heron debuted its first-ever fashion collab, with Australian label C/MEO Collective. The line is basically a Solange-style cheat sheet, with structured silhouettes done up in Caribbean colors and graphic prints.
When: Out now at store.saintheron.com.
3. Outdoor Voices Launches Exercise Accessories
What: Outdoor Voices—the athleisure line with a fashion-girl following—is branching out from color-blocked leggings and shrunken hoodies to dabble in exercise equipment. Its first foray is a bundle of yoga accessories—including blocks, a roller, and a triangle—constructed from natural cork and designed in partnership with Sina Sohrab and Joseph Guerra of New York industrial design studio Visibility.
When: Out now at outdoorvoices.com.
4. Rihanna and Dior Launch Star Trek-Inspired Sunglasses
What: Riding high on the success of her Puma collaborations, Dior brand ambassador Rihanna just released a line of sunglasses with the luxury label. Inspired by Star Trek's La Forge—the lieutenant commander who was never without his wraparounds—the shades come in silver, pink, blue, green, and red (all $840), as well as 24-karat gold-plated ($1,950).
When: Available now, exclusively in Dior boutiques.
5. Basics Become a Basic Right For All
What: Here at Sweet, we're big, big fans of basics done well, which is why we were immediately fans of Brianna Lance (formerly of Reformation) and Freddie Cowan's menswear brand, Basic Rights, which was full of perfect T-Shirts, sweatshirts, and more when it launched at the beginning of 2016. Less than a year later, they have more news: They're making the same amazing, superbly simple pieces in sizes suitable for women now, too.
When: Available now, at basicrights.com.
6. Barneys New York Becomes a Bieber Merch Purveyor
What: If you, like us, have been waiting for your Purpose tour T-shirt—dutifully purchased from the official Purpose Tour website—to ship for going on two weeks, with another estimated two to four weeks of waiting to go, you may have found it very interesting when Barneys announced that it would be selling a Purpose tour collection starting on Saturday, July 16. So interesting, in fact, that you may need to go to the new Chelsea location in New York City to buy something that will hold you over.
When: Out now, available at Barneys in Chelsea and on Madison Avenue, in New York City
7. Just-Launched Label YSTR Gives Us Affordable, Eco-Friendly Fashion
What: L.A.-based label YSTR, which takes its name from "yesterday," is inspired by '60s babes like Françoise Hardy and Jane Birkin, yet its designers Garrett Gerson and April Liang are totally committed to the very 2016 problem of fast-fashion waste. All of the pieces—from chambray jumpsuits to soft-wash cotton tees—are cut to order, and nothing is more than $200.
