Reebok and Victoria Beckham Partner for New Collection
Over the past two years, Victoria Beckham has embraced an entirely new aesthetic – one that is more relaxed, more comfortable, and distinctly different from the severe bodycon looks she was once known for. We’ve even noticed her dashing out after the finale of her runway shows at New York Fashion Week decked out in slouchy trousers and sneakers.
For this reason, Beckham’s new casual motif makes her an ideal long-term partner for Reebok, and we’re thrilled to announce that the two powerhouse brands will be working in collaboration on an exclusive Victoria Beckham x Reebok collection, which will debut in late 2018.
MyTheresa x Chloé Capsule Collection Goes Live
MyTheresa never seems to run out of creative and fascinating ways to promote its capsule collaborations. On November 9th, the luxury e-commerce site partnered with “It” brand Chloé to bring you an exclusive capsule collaboration. As a clever way of introducing you to the collection, MyTheresa produced a special short film called Runaway Baby, which spans three episodes and is directed by independent filmmaker Lola Bessis. In the first chapter, below, you’ll be just as dazzled by the clothes as the creative message.
The Met Announces its 2018 Exhibit and Gala Theme
To the public, the Met Gala is an excuse to gawk at celebrities in extravagant clothes that are (mostly) worn in celebration of the Costume Institute’s annual theme. Yet, the exhibit itself is always a marvel, aside from all of the glittering celebrity attendees. For 2018, the Met has announced Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination as the theme. It will explore the relationship between fashion and religious iconography, ecclesiastical dress, liturgical vestments, and more. Amal Clooney, Rihanna, and Donatella Versace will co-chair the Met Gala event in celebration.
Lupita Nyong'o Calls out Another Unneccesary 'Shop Job
Earlier this year, we noted that Solange Knowles – singer of the track “Don’t Touch My Hair” – called out ES Magazine for removing her braids from its cover shot. It doesn’t seem like magazines are paying attention to the very women they are celebrating with shoots and interviews, because they were at it again this week.
Lupita Nyong’o took to Instagram to call out Grazia UK for photoshopping her hair, making it smoother and removing her curls entirely. In her post, she revealed that not only is she tremendously proud of her hair, but she also wasn’t consulted on the decision to remove it from the photo at all. Hey magazines, this isn’t hard: don’t touch their hair!
As I have made clear so often in the past with every fiber of my being, I embrace my natural heritage and despite having grown up thinking light skin and straight, silky hair were the standards of beauty, I now know that my dark skin and kinky, coily hair are beautiful too. Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like. Had I been consulted, I would have explained that I cannot support or condone the omission of what is my native heritage with the intention that they appreciate that there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women’s complexion, hair style and texture. #dtmh
