ICYMI: Beyoncé rules The Lion King's red carpet, H&M is charging for shopping bags, Chanel hires a diversity chief
Fashion by the 'gram
1. The Lion King's world première turned the red carpet into Pride Rock.
Beyoncé (along with Kelly and Michelle, cue squeals from Destiny's Child fans) looked positively — and fittingly — regal. And now, thanks to Pandora's The Lion King collection, you can join in the gilded fun, too.
2. H&M Singapore joined efforts to reduce shopping bag consumption.
3. Chanel hired its first-ever diversity and inclusion chief.
4. Gucci bent reality with a new feature in its smartphone app.
Employing augmented reality (AR) technology, users can try on virtual versions of the brand's Ace sneakers. The future is now, y'all.
5. Shopping at Net-a-Porter got a whole lot fancier than usual.
The Net rolled out its EIP Privé fine jewellery shopping arm for VIP clients, which includes private previews of the latest collections, customisation or bespoke services, and exclusive access to one-of-a-kind items.
6. Victoria's Secret landed in hot water for allegedly passing off another lingerie brand's goods as its own (no, really).
Diet Prada produced literal receipts revealing a Victoria's Secret employee's purchase of over USD$12,000 worth of a bra-and-panty set from competitor Fleur du Mal, which soon appeared on VS's own e-commerce platform. Like, whoa.
7. Stella McCartney paid tribute to her dad in a new capsule collection.
The designer has generally avoided mingling her family and professional lives, preferring her talent to stand independently of Paul and Linda McCartney's outsized legacies. But her new All Together Now collection nostalgically nods to The Beatles' psychedelic 1968 film, Yellow Submarine.
8. Timberland hopped aboard the recycled-plastic train, with its Brooklyn Reboot collection.
9. Fila opened the doors to its Jewel Changi Airport boutique.
