Fashion and lifestyle site, Man Repeller, will shut down.

Run by notable fashion blogger, Leandra Medine Cohen, Man Repeller evolved from a personal style blog to become a "unique media brand with an approach to storytelling that transforms online interaction." Trouble first hit when the company was criticised by former employees for racist and classist behaviour, which led to Medine Cohen stepping back from daily operations.

This was then followed by its eventual shut down that was announced this week. "I am confirming that Repeller, formerly Man Repeller, is ending operations and offering employees severance pay," Medine Cohen told The Cut. "The company has been self-funded by its operations since its launch ten years ago as a personal blog but due to financial constraints, we are no longer able to sustain the business." R.I.P.


Kendall and Kylie Jenner designed an exclusive collection for Amazon.

This was done as a part of Amazon's The Drop initiative, which offers collections designed by influencers from all around the world. It does, however, come with a catch. You see, customers only have 30 hours to shop the full range before it disappears from good. Eep. The line-up comprises street-wear fits adored by the Kardashian-Jenner clan, which includes turtlenecks, cropped cardis, and more — all of which sold out within hours. We can't say we're surprised.


Rihanna features breast cancer survivors in her latest Savage x Fenty campaign.

It's an apt decision as any, seeing how October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Selected ambassadors, Cayatanita, Ericka, and Nykia, opened up on their experiences beating cancer, and were featured prominently on the brand's Instagram page. A portion of the proceeds from this range will be donated to Rihanna's Clara Lionel Foundation that aims to "support and fund groundbreaking and effective education" as well as "health and emergency response programs around the world."


Givenchy enlists the biggest names in Hollywood to star in their latest social media lookbook.

Think Kim Kardashian, Laura Dern, and Bella Hadid. The newly instated members of the #givenchyfamily rocked edgy, modern pieces in the vein of alligator-print jackets, slinky peek-a-boo dresses, and arched, abstract heels that probably pose a challenge to walk in.


You can now visit Net-A-Porter's island on Animal Crossing.

Its sprawling layout comprises a photography studio, gym, virtual coffee shop, and all the necessities a modern-day gal is sure to love. This includes avatar outfits inspired by Isabel Marant's FW20 capsule collection, we might add, that are available for purchase now. Hey, only the best fits for your best self (jk).

Valentino opens their new flagship boutique in ION Orchard.

Located on the first floor, its store front is decked out entirely in Venetian Terrazzo and accented with one-of-a-kind gypsum panels; a reflection of the brand's core values of "craftsmanship, romanticism and classical style". Hear, hear.

Skechers teams up with Thai singer, Mew Suppasit, for a new collection.

Drawing inspiration of the ancient tale of sending love through the moon, the collaboration sees a black, yellow, white and grey colour palette featured on a series of shirts, jackets, pants, and bags. Scoop it up via Shopee when it launches 26 October.
