ICYMI: Marc Jacobs marries, Max Mara in hot water, and Raf Simons on life post-Calvin Klein
Fashion by the 'gram
1. Marc Jacobs tied the knot with his partner Char Defrancesco.
Jacobs proposed to Defrancesco last April via a flashmob at Chipotle, and the couple wore suits from Savile Row's Huntsman; Defrancesco topped his look off with Christian Louboutin sneakers, while Jacobs opted for custom Gucci boots created by his friend Alessandro Michele. The wedding was attended by a host of fashion and entertainment figures, among them mononymous supermodels Kate, Naomi, Christy, Cindy, Kaia, Bella, and Gigi.
2. '70s fashion muse Pat Cleveland received a shock cancer diagnosis — while she was in Paris without insurance — and received a ton of support from her fashion family.
Her daughter Anna, also a model and muse to Jean-Paul Gaultier and Zac Posen, first spread the word of her mother's medical emergency on Instagram.
3. Raf Simons spoke out to The Guardian about his abrupt dismissal from Calvin Klein — sorta.
While promoting his line with Danish textile maker Kvadrat, Simons danced around his irontight non-disclosure agreement (can we just agree once and for all that those things are pure evil?). "What you read and what actually happened are not always the same thing,” he remarked coyly.
4. Rodarte announced a collaboration with Universal Standard.
For the first time ever, the American sisters' dreamlike designs will span US sizes 0 to 40. Of late, Rodarte has aggressively courted Bohemian Rhapsody star Lucy Boynton and Captain Marvel herself, Brie Larson.
5. Puma dropped a Barbie capsule collection on the occasion of the doll's 60th anniversary.
Now that she can finally wear flats, Barbie has gone full athleisure on us. No word on what Ken thinks, nor do his opinions concerning her appearance matter, really *smirks*.
6. Max Mara became the latest major brand to embroil themselves in a cultural appropriation scandal.
After the Italian house was called out by the Traditional Arts and Ethnology Centre — a Laotian cultural organisation — for uncredited/unattributed use of motifs from Oma decorative arts, the brand allegedly pressured TAEC to retract their criticism.
