Canadian fashion executive, Peter Nygard, has been arrested on sex trafficking charges.
According to the New York Times, Nygard is being accused of assaulting and trafficking dozens of women over the years. He reportedly utilised company resources to intimidate and coerce them into performing sexual acts and staying quiet after, to the point where he even had a "database" of his potential list of targets. Prosecutors revealed that he went after women from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, promising them lucrative modeling contracts in return. His two sons also filed a suit against Nygard, claiming that they he had arranged for them to be raped when they were underage. Watch this space for more updates.
Anna Wintour has been made the Chief Content Officer of Condé Nast.
What does this mean? Well, it means beyond deciding on the editorial direction of Vogue, she will also be responsible for the all Condé Nast content worldwide. She will no longer be simply advising — as with her previous role as Global Content Advisor — but will now be fully in charge. In sum: a powerful woman just got even more powerful. It seems congratulations are in order.
Nike and Ambush have teamed up to release NBA apparel.
Each piece is heavily inspired by the '90s. This translates to tear-away track pants, long-sleeve tees, sports jackets, and more that are reminiscent of female artists back in the day who used to take guys clothes. Ambush's Creative Director, Yoon Ahn, further elaborates in a statement that she loved how said artists would own the look and make it feminine. "It's more from a fashion perspective," she said, "but I wanted to combine that masculine energy as well, but reintroduce it in a very feminine and fun kind of way."
Jeremy O. Harris has started his own fashion line.
The famed playwright worked with fashion house, Ssense, to make this happen. The end-result is a series of gender-neutral clothes that are brimming with colour, as evidenced by a two-piece indigo suit as well as a pair of vivid brown checkered trousers. He cites a variety of Black writers and artists as inspiration, naming Ethel Waters and Tyler Mitchell amongst many others.
Naomi Campbell's hazmat suit will be featured in Bath's Fashion Musem.
The news came to a shock to Campbell as well, who questioned the museum's decision to display them. She then revealed in an interview with the Wall Street Journal that she has a rolling subscription of aforementioned hazmat suits from Amazon. "Linda Evangelista was very insightful and said (to) get them," she said. "There was one point where my subscription hadn't come because they'd run out, and I panicked, even though I wasn't going anywhere."
Timothee Chalamet dressed up as Harry Styles on SNL.
And pulled it off with aplomb, we might add. The Dune lead channeled Styles by donning a Peter Pan collar shirt; several pearl-embellished rings; and a rainbow jumper as he discussed Styles' hit song, Watermelon Sugar. Requesting that he re-visit this look at his next talk show appearance, maybe?
