Mila Kunis has marked the birth of her daughter, Wyatt Isabelle, by designing an emerald “motherhood ring” that will in turn benefit other mothers.
The actress – who is also global ambassador for Gemfields, the world’s leading supplier of responsibly sourced coloured gemstones – has created an 18-carat yellow-gold emerald ring with jeweller Marina B, the profits from which will go to fund a maternity centre in Zambia, near the Gemfields mine.
“Carrying a child and bringing new life into the world marks the start of an incredible journey,” Kunis explained.
“Throughout history, every culture has its own way of recognising this extraordinary event, often with a gift for mother or child. Precious green emeralds are traditionally symbols of motherhood, wisdom, and long-lasting love. But they are also a symbol for hope in many cultures, and so the proceeds from this collection of Motherhood Rings will benefit the opening of Gemfields Nkana Health Centre, where four new wards have been built – a major undertaking that will have long-lasting benefits to the local community.”
All profits from sales of the rings will go directly to the project, upgrading the health centre and adding a new maternity clinic. Click here to reserve a Mila ring, priced $4,800.
Sweden’s beloved menswear brand is ready for world domination.
Silver Place is that rare thing, a small pedestrian Soho street in central London with a laid-back atmosphere devoid of honking cars. Though only a stone’s throw away from tourist-heavy Oxford Street and chaotic Carnaby Street, it attracts a healthy mix of destination shoppers and random passers-by.
Our Legacy, the Swedish fashion brand famed for its intellectual and contemporary menswear, could not have asked for a better spot for its fourth store, the first one outside Sweden. “We’re in a nice part of London—it’s smack in the middle of Soho but still a bit hidden,” explains Our Legacy cofounder Jockum Hallin.
What began in 2005 with printed T-shirts made in a studio by friends Christopher Nying and Hallin has grown into a global brand. And it has done especially well in the U.K., hence the imminent store opening. “We had been looking for a space here for a while; we wanted something magical and with character,” says Hallin. They ended up with a small and cozy London home. “England has developed into a great market for us, especially in the past two years. We’ve thought a lot about that, and we’re not entirely sure why—it’s not like it’s been a conscious decision to focus on the U.K. I suppose there was just something that clicked between us,” he adds.
“Our cut is far from overdesigned—we spend more time on getting the fabrication, weight, and texture right. A lot probably has to do with our positioning as well; it’s hard to completely define what kind of brand we are, which means we have a broad customer base,” says Hallin. He’s referring to Our Legacy’s mode of communication. The label hasn’t always been that forthcoming. Adds Hallin: “Yes, we’ve been surrounded by a kind of romantic obscurity. We have to trust the customer to get it and to understand what we’re saying, but I think Our Legacy has a fairly educated customer.”
An Our Legacy collection used to be defined by elevated basics, but today the label is in the business of fashion—but its own kind of fashion, featuring pieces that have been “taken for a ride.” “We used to be more of a ‘wardrobe brand,’ dedicated to refining classics, but today you can find statement pieces in our collections as well,” says Hallin. “Often we do quite formal garments, but you’ll never feel overdressed in them. We’ll clash two unexpected fabrics with each other to create something new. And it’s not just about fabrics but also how you can create new garments, like a suede shirt with a zip or suit trousers with a elasticized waist—they’re hybrid pieces.”
Visit the Silver Place shop and you’ll see that Our Legacy’s design DNA can also applied to bricks and mortar.
Far from overdesigned, the stores use plain but elegant materials to create a sophisticated shopping experience. “With the store, the goal was to get heavy things floating. We used simple materials to look more than they are, a bit like with the clothes. There’s an industrial feel to it. Lots of stainless steel, glass, and concrete, plus a resin-covered floor that makes it look like you’re standing on glass,” says Hallin.
The shop is more than part of an expansion plan; it’s a statement of intent. “The ambition has always been to grow organically, even though that sounds like a cliché. Since it’s quite a small company, we have to expand slowly. It’s expensive to grow, whatever business you’re in. We want to continue this kind of growth, and going forward, I think opening up in New York or even Los Angeles would be a good fit and natural progression for us,” he adds. World domination isn’t a very Swedish ambition, but it seems Our Legacy is destined for it.

Celebrity collaborations are a dime a dozen. So for one to catch our attention, it has to be pretty spot on: The product has to be great, and the partnership really has to make sense.
And this one, sustainable fashion line Everlane’s first-ever collab with model and illustrator (and Hemingway spawn) Langley Fox, checks all the boxes.
Fox, one of Everlane’s first models, has created two simple tanks for the brand. That doesn’t sound like much of a feat, but each one is just about perfect.
The muscle tank is inspired by a top Fox stole from her big sis, model Dree Hemingway, and wore to death. The drape tank is a bit more feminine, and has a thoughtful backseam detail. Available starting today on Everlane.com, the drape tank is priced at £14, the muscle tank at £16. Both versions come in black, white, and navy. We may be scooping up all six…
