Week 11 Recap
Read the best of news we liked this week
Hi there weekenders! We hope you have the sweetest, chillest and best weekend ahead of you. While we’re out and about catching up with old friends, playing tennis like we mean it and wondering where exactly spring is hiding amidst the heavy bouts of rain, we’ve also summed up a recap of this past week for you.
Monday right on time with Gucci
Gucci has come up with memes to promote its latest collection of watches. As Dazed Digital writes these were “created as a collaboration between visual artists like Alec Soth, Dazed favourite @pollynor and meme creators / regular heroes of your Instagram / Twitter feeds like @beigecardigan and @williamcult, these are memes with a distinctly Gucci aesthetic, all aimed at promoting their new line of watches.”
Tuesday with more diversity than ever (during fashion month)
Now that fashion month is over it’s time to look back and recapitulate. The Fashion Spot has released its seasonal runway diversity report and had good news: The fall/winter 17 runways were the most diverse on record. Across the four big cities New York, London Milan and Paris there was a total of 27,9 percent non-white models. Looks like there’s still room for way more but still! As ever, New York came out on top and also recorded the highest number of trans models on the runway.
Wednesday with Greenpeace
Greenpeace recently published a study on womens’ shopping habits – to find out that while many of us like to shop to de-stress we also end up feeling exhausted by it. We took this as an incentive to put together a guide on how to shop less. If you haven’t read it yet, here’s another chance.
Thursday with Claire Waight Keller
Thursday’s breaking news was the appointment of Claire Waight Keller as the creative lead for Givenchy. She’s the second female to spearhead one of luxury conglomerats LVMH’s brands – the first one os Maria Grazia Chiuri who took over after Raf Simons at Dior. While it’s great news to see another woman take over we were a bit stunned as we though she left Chloé to be able to relocate to London to spend more time with her family. We’re confident, though, that she has it all worked out and cannot wait to see her first ideas for Givenchy.
Friday with Dries van Noten
The Belgian designer has just shown his 100th show. He says: “Fashion shows are really my way of communication,” In case you’d like to keep track and count back to zero – not a problem. He’s opened his archives to the public and if you like you can watch all of his shows right here!
That’s it for now. Make your own headlines now!
