Our baby Jourdan Dunn has recently launched a 96-piece athleisure collection in collaboration with Missguided. The line is called "LonDunn + Missguided" and includes everything from hooded sweater dresses, satin dusters, bodysuits, joggers, off the shoulder sweatshirts, velour bombers and more.

Marc Jacobs Fall 2017 RTW

Riley Montana in Marc Jacobs
Marc Jacobs' Hip-Hop Influenced Runway Show The Cool Kids Take Over the Park Avenue Armory We definitely have NOT forgotten about the Marc Jacobs collection from last season that took cultural appropriation to another level with Caucasian models strutting the runway in multicolored faux locks. Immediately after the social media storm, Jacobs began defending himself and his statements only made the situation worse! Aside from that, he listed over 10 inspirations including Harajuku girls, London in the 80's, Boy George, Ravers, House music and more, yet there was just one very important inspiration that was conveniently excluded! The issue he truly faced was not the fact that he used locks in his show, but that it was overwhelmingly white (models) AND he...

Award-winning actress and filmmaker, Lupita Nyong’o takes Vogue Magazine on a quest to her native village in Kenya wearing the season's hottest prints from Givenchy Chloe, and Roberto Cavalli to Duro Olowu, Prada and Missoni.
