Former vintage store owner Lisa Rowan and fashion stylist Kaarin Vembar discuss fashion news, pop culture, and questions about business and creativity.
Who Owns the Sun?
We spend some time talking trademarks in two disputes where brands you know try to get control of some really random stuff, honestly. Kenzo's top designer has left the fashion house and LVMH has launched a sales platform for deadstock fabric. And we remember designer Alber Elbaz.
Is it Hacking or is it Hacky?
We review the Gucci / Balenciaga mashup runway show and fill you in on the Valentino factory fire. Nike and Lululemon are launching refurbishing programs, and Canada Goose is keeping up with its sustainability plan. Plus, there's a Halston miniseries coming to Netflix.
Fast Food Fashion
The Met Gala has been rescheduled, White Castle collaborated with Telfar, and Cardi B has a new collection with Reebok. Nina Ricci is closing its flagship and we have a fashion crime from the shoe industry.
It's All Art
Hermes has an unusual new home, Brooks Brothers abandoned a bunch of mannequins and Christmas trees, and Nike didn't pay taxes. Meanwhile, Gap is going to prioritize orders by customer loyalty and face masks are going high fashion. Come hang out!
There Hasn't Been a Valentino Around Here for Years
Guess discontinued a Telfar lookalike bag, Fashion Nova is compensating customers for shipping delays, and Fifth Avenue is a hot real estate mess. Bottega Veneta launched a digital magazine, and manufacturers are patenting their leather alternatives.
The Pull it Together Present
Art Peck is trying to start a fashion SPAC, brands aren't hitting the sustainability mark just yet, and cotton from China is back in the news. Meanwhile, Brandon Maxwell is lending his design eye to Walmart, and fairycore is the next new fashion trend.
