The fashion cycle never sleeps and with this month being a blur, between getting back into the swing of things and catching up on work, it can feel like you’ve missed the top fashion moments of January. Did you catch the director’s musical chairs at LVMH or the New York Fashion Week cal edition? (Yes, the shows are right around the corner!) If you haven’t, before you start frantically Googling information, scroll down a little further.
TZR gives you a CliffNotes version of every industry launch and event you need to know by the end of this month. First up is the aforementioned NYFW schedule, which welcomes a host of designers — both new and established — back into the fold. Second, so many brands are debuting collections filled with fresh accessories and clothes to buy if your New Year’s resolutions include upgrading your wardrobe for 2023. I, for one, am looking for statement jewelry to wear on my Zoom calls as a quick way to freshen up my sad outfit with sweatpants and T-shirts.
Ahead, you’ll find TZR’s latest roundup of fashion events you need to know for January so you can stay up to date with all the exciting new shopping releases and events. You won’t miss a single important moment.

Louis Vuitton uses KidSuper to co-create its next menswear collection
On January 19, Louis Vuitton will present its Fall/Winter 2023 menswear collection in collaboration with Colm Dillane, founder of KidSuper. According to Vogue, the play “will feature set design by Lina Kutsovskaya and French directors Michel and Olivier Gondry, who directed the opening film for the play.” Fans can also expect a big celebrity moment at the event from the respected music star. The house has yet to announce a permanent male artistic director since Virgil Abloh’s death in 2021, so this latest partnership with Dillane serves as an exciting opportunity to test the waters.

For Blackpink fans who want to buy the exact piece Rosé is wearing in the pictures, she’s wearing sparkling diamond Lock bracelets.
Dior launches a new handbag
If you need to refresh your handbag collection, add Dior’s new Lady 95.22 bag to your shopping wishlist. It was designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri and was presented for the first time during the Fall/Winter 2022-2023 show. The new style is a reinterpretation of the favorite brand Lady Dior for the audience of 2023. You will notice that the two handles are delicately enhanced with leather and metal, while the bags have the classic Dior pendants as seen on the Lady Di design. Only select retailers will carry this style, so if you like it, get it as soon as possible.
