“On Friday night, Jeremy Scott unveiled Moschino’s Summer 2017 menswear and Resort womenswear collections with a trippy show in downtown Los Angeles.

WILL THIS BE THE NEXT BIG STORE BRAND FROM WILLIAMS SONOMA? – RetailingToday
“A retailer that specializes in reproductions of classic lighting products and house parts is quietly expanding under the ownership of Williams-Sonoma. Rejuvenation is set to open its first location in Chicago. Founded in 1977 as an architectural salvage store and acquired by Williams-Sonoma in 2011, the Portland, Oregon-based retailer specializes in lighting fixtures and house parts, including bath hardware and door and cabinet hardware, which are based on “the best pieces of the past” and reinterpreted for modern taste.

TYLER, THE CREATOR’S FIRST FASHION SHOW WAS JUST AS EPIC AS WE EXPECTED – Vogue
“Known for his flamboyant style, offbeat sense of humor, and razor sharp lyrics, Tyler, the Creator’s debut fashion show in Los Angeles was bound to be a crowd pleaser. “You shouldn’t expect anything because then you’ll be disappointed,” said the rapper slash TV star slash clothing designer nervously in between fielding texts from friends still hoping to get a seat at the sold out event. “Do you like to be disappointed?” Outside, however, expectations were running pretty high among the legions of fans waiting in line for the doors to open. “Tyler is going to walk down the runway with an alligator,” said one.”

SOCCER’S ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC HEADS ONTO THE FASHION FIELD – TheNewYorkTimes
“But in Zlatan style, he zigged instead of zagged and faked them all out. He wasn’t joining another team — at least not yet. He was jumping onto the athleisure bandwagon. So began the unveiling of A-Z, a new activewear brand in a highly limited palette (navy, gray, white, black, and dark red) with relatively simple lines. Produced in partnership with the Norwegian retail group Varner, it will be available online in 11 European countries, with plans to roll out globally.”
