The clothes won’t be very Harvard-y in the literal sense. “Harvard” only appears on the labels inside the garments, while the university’s signature crimson only appears in buttonholes, zipper pulls, and other trimmings.

Prices range from $165 for pants to $495 for sport coats. The line’s creative director, John Fowler, told WWD that designers drew from photos of students lounging in Harvard Yard in the sixties. “It’s a style that has become current again and not just with the American consumer. We think Harvard Yard will have global appeal.”[The Cut]

Gucci’s Mark Ronson:

Gucci has tapped the DJ and producer Mark Ronson, one of its most high-profile fans, to collaborate with Frida Giannini on several styles of Gucci Ronsons for the brand’s upcoming series of sneakers-only pop-up shops, the first of which comes to NYC this October. The three styles the brand is previewing include a chukka, a deck shoe, and a more traditional sneaker, which, with their bright colorways and preppy styling, call to mind the footwear of another of Ronson’s favorite lines, Band of Outsiders.[Men.style]
