Erdem's latest collection artfully navigated the life of Maria Callas, juxtaposing classical inspiration with contemporary relevance. Set against the backdrop of the Parthenon galleries of the British Museum, Erdem paid homage to Callas' iconic 1953 performance of 'Medea'. Models donned Cleopatra-like eye make-up and extravagant silk pyjamas, capturing the tension between glamour and vulnerability, while the critique of casting underscored the industry's ongoing conversation about inclusivity.


Burberry's Fall 2024 collection, under the creative direction of Daniel Lee, exuded a classic English style with subtle quirky details. Set to an Amy Winehouse-led soundtrack, the collection featured utilitarian outerwear paired with unexpected accessories like oversized umbrellas and XL duffels. Scarves worn as hoods hinted at a revival of Burberry's expressive outerwear, while Naomi Campbell's glittering dress added a touch of glamour to the earthy, neutral palette.
