ICYMI: Zac Posen shuts business, Elle Germany under fire for mislabelling black model, Vestiaire Collective opens in Selfridges
Fashion by the ‘gram
1. Zac Posen shuts business while Barneys New York is sold.
The American designer decided to close up shop after failing to secure investors in time. Barneys, on the other hand, was acquired by Authentic Brands Group after the company filed for bankruptcy earlier.
2. Elle Germany called out by social media for misidentifying black model.
In their November 2019 issue, Elle Germany’s “Black is Back” feature (a problematic proclamation to begin with) mislabelled a photo of Naomi Chin Wing as Janaye Furman. Naomi Campbell took to her Instagram to blast Elle Germany and editor Sabine Nedelchev. The publication has since apologised for its mistake.
3. Vestiaire Collective opens its first boutique.
Customers can now browse and buy Vestiaire Collective’s extensive range of vintage items at Selfridges in London.
4. LVMH in talks with Tiffany & Co. for “possible transaction”.

You can now shop the sustainable luxury label at the three-week-long pop-up.

Shop at H&M’s latest store, located at Paya Lebar Quarter (PLQ) mall, from 8 November. Meantime, Style Theory’s first flagship in Singapore at 313@Somerset is open for consumers to view, try, and rent their products.
7. Maison Margiela renews John Galliano’s contract.
Since taking over creative reins in 2014, Galliano's contract has been extended. Under his leadership, the brand has doubled its revenue.
