Though its opening next May is nearly a year away, the theme for The Met's 2018 Costume Institute exhibition has reportedly been revealed.
Hot off of KFC's millennial-friendly fashion line, McDonald's is the next fast food line to create a fashion moment. Meet the "McDCouture" collection, which is exactly what it sounds like: couture fashioned from all things McDonald's.
Off-White's Virgil Abloh has a penchant for designing instantly cool accessories (case in point: these boots made "for walking"), but has yet to tap into the eyewear market—until now. The streetwear designer joined forces with eyewear brand Warby Parker for a capsule collection of sunglasses, dropping online and in stores today.
The surprisingly affordable range of sunglasses features three different styles aptly named "Small Sunglasses," "Medium Sunglasses," and "Large Sunglasses. Coming in at under $100, each pair retails for $95, making for one of Off-White's most affordable pieces yet.
The all-American brand poaches the British footwear label.
Michael Kors is buying Jimmy Choo for 896 million pounds ($1.2 billion), both brands announced on Tuesday. Under the deal, each shareholder of the high-end footwear label will receive 2.30 ($3) pounds per share in cash, WWD reports.
The acquisition is a response to the decrease in sales for upscale brands, as mall shopping has "declined sharply," reports The New York Times. Though e-commerce sites, fast-fashion brands, and even luxury labels like Gucci continue to thrive, brands in the "accessible luxury market," such as Kors, are struggling. The Jimmy Choo deal comes two months after Coach made a similar move by buying Kate Spade for $2.4 billion.
Off-White's Virgil Abloh is known for his tongue-in-cheek designs, but a pair of boots from the brand's Fall 2017 collection may just be his cheekiest yet.
The pointed knee-high boots are emblazoned with the words "FOR WALKING" in all caps up the leg, paying homage to Nancy Sinatra's iconic 1966 song ("These Boots Were Made For Walkin'," if you couldn't guess).
