The South Korean car company is partnering with six leading fashion brands from around the world, including Rosie Assoulin and Public School, to create a capsule collection. These limited-edition pieces will be sold in the London department store Selfridges starting this week, with prices ranging from $250 to $1,450. All proceeds will go to the Institute of Positive Fashion, a research-based organization devoted to helping fashion labels become more sustainable.

The car industry is devastating to the planet in many ways, from the resources required to manufacture a vehicle to the carbon and toxic fumes that vehicle spews once it’s on the road. The industry is fairly efficient at recovering metals and rubber from scrapped cars

Rihanna is one of the nominees for the 2020 E! People’s Choice Awards for the Style Star of 2020. She’s a musician, businesswoman and a fashion icon. There’s pretty much nothing she can’t do! Rihanna defines fashion as freedom.

“‘Freedom is the comfortability of a piece and being who you are a thousand percent,” she told E! News in February at New York Fashion Week. “‘Cause I guess there’s a lot of discomfort based on the barriers that society puts on you. What they tell you should be, shouldn’t be, look like, not look like, talk like, dress like and to just be OK with whatever it is that you feel and are. That to me is the ultimate freedom.”

Gucci and Louis Vuitton have topped the fashion category of the world’s most valuable luxury brands, according to Brand Finance’s annual report. The fashion houses came in second and third respectively on the general round-up after Porsche, which was ranked the most valuable luxury brand in the world.

The brand valuation consultancy’s annual list ranks businesses based on the overall brand value as well as their power in influencing consumers’ choices, based on criteria including marketing investments, familiarity, loyalty, staff satisfaction and corporate reputation, according to WWD.

Other fashion houses which ranked highly on the list included Cartier in third, Chanel in fourth and Hermès in fifth. Rolex, Dior and Coach also featured in the top 10.

Despite these brands performing well against competitors, the outlook is still predictably bleak following an incredibly difficult year globally as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Brand Finance

16 Secondhand Fashion Finds For The Amazon Prime Day-Averse

We love Amazon Prime Day as much as the next bargain hunter, but what a lot of shoppers forget about this time of year is that there are other ways to save right now. Instead, in the world of secondhand shopping, every day is something of a sale day. And while your pre-loved buys might not arrive in two days time, they also won’t add to the climate crisis, which, if you ask us, is reason enough to consider this method of scouting a deal. At resale retailers like Vestiaire Collective, Thrilling, The RealReal, and more, saving money is the norm, rather than a two-day event. There, items that are seeking a second chance in someone else’s wardrobe — or, in some cases, still with tags — are aplenty. And, as an added incentive to shop used rather than new, many items on these secondhand sites are further marked down

Will antimicrobial fashion protect you from the coronavirus?

With no end to the global pandemic in sight, fashion and sportswear brands have been quickly adapting their lines to include face masks decorated with logos and stylish patterns.

While cloth masks made of traditional materials can help slow the spread of Covid-19, according to the World Health Organization, some labels are going one step further. They’re marketing new accessories, and in some cases entire clothing lines, as having antimicrobial properties — applications that inhibit the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi, or reduce viral activity. But what does antimicrobial fashion do, and can it provide extra protection during a pandemic?

A Fashion Store Worked Around Closing Orders Through Instagram

ST. PETERSBURG, FL — Detox, Designer Resale Boutique made up for in-store buys after they were temporarily closed for 30 days at the start of the coronavirus pandemic selling its clothes through Instagram Story.

Co-owners who are husband and wife, Jake Walsh and Kylie Walsh started using Instagram Story to model their consignment shop’s clothes in February. It excited a lot of customers with what they saw when they were bored from staying home during Florida’s statewide stay-at-home order.

“We have a lot of success with posting things on our Instagram Story,” Jake told Patch. “During our closure, we took most inventory home and just modeled it on Instagram, and we also did a few consignments then.”

Jake said they maxed out their Instagram stories every day, and a lot of their followers told them it was like watching the Home Shopping Network. Customers appreciated the Walsh’s providing exact measurements

It Looks Like Kendall Jenner Is a Fan of 2020’s Most Popular Fashion Trend

The Mega Agency

Welcome to the new Look of the Day, where we comb through every celebrity outfit from the past 24 hours and feature the single most conversation-worthy ensemble. Love it, leave it, or shop the whole thing below.

If you’ve been easing your way back into actual clothes — AKA stuff that doesn’t involve the words “stretchy,” “sweat,” or “pajama-like” — perhaps Kendall Jenner can serve as some inspiration. The model seemed to find the best of both worlds on Monday night as she grabbed dinner at Nobu in Malibu. While her oversized Mango jacket looked both cute and cozy, she spiced up the look with the help of a slightly sheer, cropped T-shirt and some cream leather pants.

Still, it was impossible for our eyes not to lock in on Jenner’s bold footwear choice. While most of the world is still finding comfort in UGG boots and
