Kim Kardashian Returns to the White House
After helping free Alice Marie Johnson from prison and taking on criminal justice reform, aspiring lawyer Kim Kardashian has returned to the White House. During her appearance, the reality star announced her partnership with Lyft, along with its new initiative to provide former inmates with free rides to job interviews. This move is part of a larger effort to help ex-convicts achieve employment after being released from prison. In the now-famous words of momager Kris Jenner, “You’re doing amazing, sweetie.”
Chris Pratt Weds Katherine Schwarzenegger
Chris Pratt was everyone’s favorite goof on Parks and Recreation as Andy Dwyer, but his star shot to stratospheric heights after he landed starring roles in both the Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic Park franchises. Less than two years since his public split from wife Anna Faris, Pratt has tied the knot again, this time to Katherine Schwarzenegger. The two were wed last week in Montecito, CA at an outdoor luxury resort. Showing perfect synchronicity, both newlyweds wore Giorgio Armani on the big day.
Carol Lim and Humberto Leon Exit Kenzo
On July 1, designers Carol Lim and Humberto Leon will step down from luxury label Kenzo, which the duo has overseen for the past eight years. Their final collection will take place during Men’s Fashion Week Men’s in Paris on June 23, after which Lim and Leon will return sole focus to their other brand, Opening Ceremony. After all of their vibrant, streetwise collections for Kenzo over the years, we’re sad to see them go.
Sterling Ruby Makes His Fashion Debut
While Sterling Ruby is no stranger to the fashion world – he has collaborated with Raf Simons over many seasons – the artist has officially made his fashion debut with a new ready-to-wear collection. His new brand, S.R. STUDIO. LA. CA., showed last weekend at fashion fair Pitti Immagine Uomo 96, with both menswear and womenswear in the mix.
Featuring creative paint splatters, tie-dye, and languidly draped silhouettes, Ruby’s collection took inspiration from American folk art – such a strong start from the art genius has only whetted our appetites for more.
Chanel Reopens in The Dubai Mall
Chanel first opened its doors at The Dubai Mall in 2009, but the boutique has been under renovation for some time now. On June 14, it finally opened its doors again with a brand new look. With a 715-square-meter extension, it has became the largest boutique in the UAE. The two-story space, created by architect Peter Marino, houses Chanel’s ready-to-wear collections as well as bags, shoes, accessories, fragrances, and a curated selection of fine jewelry and watches.
Dima Ayad Collaborates with Nadine Kanso
Fashion designer Dima Ayad and jewelry designer Nadine Kanso have collaborated on a meaningful new campaign. Their joint effort has resulted in five limited-edition tees with Ayad’s “You… As Is” slogan printed across them, which were interpreted in Arabic by Kanso’s own calligraphy.
The slogan is meant to invoke a feeling of confidence in the wearer and inspire them to embrace themselves as they are. Dima Ayad x Nadine Kanso’s limited edition t-shirts retail for AED 285 and are available to purchase for a limited time only at Facilité in d3 or online here.
