Ralph Lauren snow gear and arty socks: what to buy this week

Get back to the 90s with snowboarder gear from a cult range, don specs from Andy Warhol’s eyewear makers and check out iconic Irving Penn images in Paris. Here are our top style tips for the week ahead…

Cult winter fashion

Want to bag yourself a piece of fashion folklore? Polo Ralph Lauren is reissuing the 1993 Snow Beach collection, a cult range loved by snowboarders and hip-hop stars such as the Wu-Tang Clan. The 90s are a big look at the moment – especially bold logos and colours. The reissue will launch on 25 January, from £59 for a hat to £425 for a jacket (ralphlauren.com)

Irving Penn in the frame

There’s one week left to see the Irving Penn exhibition at the Galeries Nationales du Grand Palais in Paris. It’s the first major retrospective of the American artist’s work since his death in 2009. Fashion photography lovers will delight in seeing iconic images such as the Rochas Mermaid dress, modelled by his wife, Lisa Fonssagrives-Penn, sometimes dubbed the world’s first supermodel. Irving Penn is on until 29 January (grandpalais.fr/en)

Fashionably Leight

Mr Leight, a collaboration between father and son, is a new line from a powerhouse eyewear dynasty. Larry Leight was the founder of Oliver Peoples – the brand beloved of Andy Warhol. Now his son Garrett is launching Mr Leight as “a modern-day interpretation of the jet-set aesthetic”. Leight fans include Elton John, Leonardo DiCaprio and Kendall Jenner. These are high-spec specs. Available from 29 January at Dover Street Market, from £497 (doverstreetmarket.com)

Wedded to Whistles

Keith Haring wanted to bring art to the masses and this year he’ll get his wish. His designs will appear in the new Coach collection, but you can also pick them up in a new Happy Socks range, which launches on 30 January, from £11.95 (happysocks.com)
