This week, Daniel Lee was appointed the Chief Creative Officer of Burberry, Haider Ackermann was selected as the next guest designer for Jean Paul Gaultier and The Costume Institute announced the Met Gala‘s 2023 theme.

Below, Hypebeast has rounded up the top fashion stories of the week so you can stay up to date on trends in the industry.

Daniel Lee Officially Replaced Riccardo Tisci as Chief Creative Officer of Burberry

Following Burberry‘s Spring/Summer 2023 show, the British fashion house officially announced that Daniel Lee will replace Riccardo Tisci as Chief Creative Officer. Tisci, who has spent almost five years at the helm of the label, is set to step down by the end of this month. The recent SS23 presentation marked the designer’s final collection with the brand.

Lee, who previously served as the creative director at Bottega Veneta, will assume his new role beginning Monday, October 3.

“I am honored to join Burberry as Chief Creative Officer,” said Lee in a statement. “Together with the team, we will write the exciting next chapter for this legendary British luxury brand, continuing its historic heritage and building on Riccardo’s legacy. I am very excited to be returning to London, a city that champions pioneering creativity and that continues to inspire me.”

Haider Ackermann Was Named the Next Guest Designer for Jean Paul Gaultier

Jean Paul Gaultier took to Instagram on Friday to announce that the legendary Haider Ackermann will be the brand’s next guest designer. The reveal included a flashing logo that stops to confirm that the forthcoming collection will be a couture collection, like former guest designers’ works.

On the appointment, Ackermann said: “I am so tremendously thrilled to be the guest of the Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture house. Couture remains when everything has left. Haider Ackermann – Jean Paul Gaultier, one thought.”

Gaultier has previously welcomed a bevy of designers to its helm, spanning from Y/Project and Diesel’s Glenn Martens to Olivier Rousteing and sacai.

Pharrell Announced His Digital-First Auction House and Content Platform JOOPITER

Pharrell unveiled a brand new digital-first auction house and content platform called JOOPITER, with the intention of providing customers with a high-end auction experience curated by collectors and creators.

The initiative will kick off with a 52-piece capsule that has ties to Pharrell’s career, titled “Son of Pharaoh.” The range includes rare pieces like his 18K Blackberry that appeared in his legendary freestyle on BET, a Jacob & Co. N.E.R.D. Brain Pendant chain from ‘04, a gilded Sony Playstation PSP, a Louis Vuitton Steamer Trunk in “Black/Multicolor” monogram and more.

“The idea behind JOOPITER is to embrace the energy that is released when objects change hands, and to respect the value that’s been created around these objects,” Pharrell said. “JOOPITER is a new platform for myself and for my fellow curators, one where existing and future generations of collectors can feel welcome to take part in this exchange.”

Son of Pharaoh will be available to view by appointment during a special auction preview in NYC on October 14 and 15.

Met Gala Revealed That the 2023 Theme Will Center Around Karl Lagerfeld

In Paris on Friday, the Costume Institute announced the official theme for the 2023 Met Gala. Next year, fashion’s biggest night will honor the game-changing works of Karl Lagerfeld, with an emphasis on his famous sketches. The exhibition, formally titled “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” will open at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in Spring 2023.

Additionally, one of Lagerfeld’s favorite architects, Tadao Ando, will design the showcase. Andrew Bolton and Wendy Yu will lead the project, which, according to Anna Wintour, was developed shortly after Lagerfeld’s death in 2019.

Moncler Celebrated 70 Years With a Storied Fashion Film

After its massive showcase in Milan’s Piazza del Duomo last week, Moncler dropped off a new film celebrating the brand’s accomplishments over the last 70 years. The visual, entitled The Brand of Extraordinary, is narrated by GRAMMY-winning singer-songwriter Alicia Keys and includes a series of iconic scenes from Moncler’s history as a fashion house.

The video opens with the brand’s founding in 1952 and subsequently follows its selection to dress the Italian expedition on its trek to the Himalayas’ K2 summit. Later, a montage showcases Moncler’s deep roots in athleticism and luxury fashion, switching been shots of the brand’s designs for the French downhill ski team at 1968’s Grenoble Winter Olympics and footage of modern-day style casters wearing the label’s famous jackets.

“Difficult is not the enemy: boring is,” Keys says in a voiceover. “Since that very first day, we have become the brand of extraordinary, inspiring everyone to conquer their highest peaks, whatever those peaks may be.”

Jacquemus Opened Its First-Ever Boutique in Paris

Jacquemus opened the doors to its first-ever boutique this week. Situated at 58 Avenue Montaigne in Paris, the two-story outpost commands 200 square meters of a 20th-century Art Deco building. The interior is very bright, with crisp, all-white walls and decor, mimicking the palette of the brand’s Fall/Winter 2022 “Le Papier” runway held at the salt hills of Aigues-Mortes in the south of France.

Aside from the obvious racks of clothes and accessory displays, the store is packed with several playful details, including a vault-looking ATM machine that distributes cups of popcorn, an oversized popcorn claw machine and round mirrors resembling those of Pierre Cardin. Additionally, the space includes a VIP salon for more personalized experiences.

“This is a dream come true for me, it’s very symbolic to be back Avenue Montaigne 11 years later. First time I was there was when I showed my 3rd collection during Vogue fashion night in front of everyone, back in 2011,” said designer and founder, Simon Porte Jacquemus.

Reports Indicated That Supreme Will Open a Store in Seoul, South Korea

This week, reports indicated that Supreme could be opening a new storefront in South Korea. Notably, the New York label registered a trademark in the country, and the move is believed to be part of a larger expansion into Asia.

The trademark of the Chapter 4 corporation was officially announced on September 2 of this year, though the brand originally applied for the certification in 2018. Although the brand has not made any announcements, it will soon be protected by South Korean law, meaning rumors of a store in Seoul will likely come to fruition.
