Telfar’s bag security programme is back and Stefan Cooke unveils its AW21 collection

Earlier this week we were tricked into taking “a moment of monochrome serenity” during the Comme des Garçons AW21 presentation, which actually turned out to be Rei Kawakubo traipsing us round the back alleys of some haunting Dickensian nightmare. In the days that followed, it felt like that was exactly where we stayed, as tiny skeletal cuffs clutched onto arms at Raf Simons’ latest show, and Kaia Gerber joined the cast of American Horror Story.  

Reviving us from this darkened stupor were the newgen collections offered up by Seoul Fashion Week and Central Saint Martin’s graduating MA cohort, which wafted some much-needed smelling salts in our direction. Meanwhile, Emma Corrin decided to auction off her pierrot-indebted Golden Globes gown (which you still have a couple of days to nab) and Junya Watanabe incarnated the legendary Soo Catwoman of London’s punk scene for an anarchic winter offering. 

Check out the gallery below for the rest of the fashion talk from this week.
