Rihanna Hosts Savage x Fenty Show
Rihanna has unveiled her latest Savage x Fenty show, VOL 2, with a wide range of diverse models. The show is exclusive on Amazon Prime and featured artists and models such as Lizzo, Cara Delevigne, Bella Hadid, and Jaida Essence Hall. It aimed to present diversity and inclusivity, “where people feel seen, heard and represented”, Rihanna said.
Lingerie in shades of blue, black, and silver donned the runway, with touches of lace and chains. “Everything that is currently happening around us is quite heavy, and at an incredibly global magnitude,” Rihanna explained. “So naturally people have the need for a slight relief from their reality, even just for a moment.” The collection is available for purchase online.
Stella McCartney Presents Eco Impact Report
Stella McCartney is launching an Eco Impact Report. The report aims to break down the environmental impact that the designer produces annually and inspire other brands to do the same. The report explains how the designer is looking for alternative methods to combat damaging farming, logging, and mining. The company said it was entering the ‘most consequential decade for humanity, and the choices that we collectively make between 2020 and 2030 will determine what the future of life on our planet looks like.”

What is Earth’s worth? We rely on “free” natural capital and services like clean air and water – but everything comes at a cost. With sustainability core to our vision and values, our Eco Impact Report 2018/19 details how and why we measure our environmental impacts in order to manage them.

Coach and J.Lo Unveil a New Handbag
Coach is releasing a new handbag with its ambassador, Jennifer Lopez. The bag itself is one of the original designs but is reimagined by J.Lo and Creative Director, Stuart Vevers. The colors of the bag are chocolate brown and baby pink, it is compromised of leather and snakeskin in a boxy style.
“Designing my first bag with Coach was a great experience,” J.Lo explained. “I really wanted the Coach x Jennifer Lopez Hutton to feel like me. The color block leather and polished hardware details are really my style. It’s a bag that makes me look pulled together and ready for anything, and I can’t wait to share it with everyone.” The Coach x Jennifer Lopez Hutton bag is available for purchase online.
Moschino Uses Marionettes in SS21 Runway
Moschino has used a different method for unveiling its new SS21 collection – marionettes. The intricately designed puppets were donned in the latest collection, complete with puppets sitting on the sides of the runway. Named ‘No Strings Attached’, there were 40 doll-sized version of each look and had exquisite detailing in every single garment.
“In short order, the world has flipped,” said Moschino. “It hasn’t capsized, but we are certainly living in the upside-down, inside-out. The topsy-turvy. Everything is surreal but somehow also too real, altogether, all at once.” The front row of the show also included puppet-versions of famous faces like Anna Wintour and Edward Enninful.

Dior and Judy Chicago are Collaborating
Dior and Judy Chicago are working on a new handbag project after their first collaboration in early 2020. The New York artist will take on the next challenge of designing three Lady Dior bags for the fifth installment of the Lady Dior Art Project. The Lady Dior Art Project began in 2016 and aims to merge the idea of fashion and artwork together. Previous artists include Athi-Patra Ruga, Rina Banerjee, Wang Guangle, Jia Lee, and Eduardo Terrazas.
“I have actually not thought much about purses, usually I end up with one purse and I use it for everything. The problem with purses, particularly evening purses, you can’t get anything into them: either purses are so big, you can’t find anything or they’re too small and they have no room. So I think the designer persons could use a little more thinking,” Judy Chicago said.
