We’ll keep you posted when more news emerges.
In other news, Telfar Global and New York City restaurant Mission Chinese Food teamed up to release a limited edition shopping bag. The metallic chrome bag quickly sold out but the good news is that 20% of all proceeds from the sale went to The Okra Project, which helps provide food to Black Trans people experiencing food insecurity.
Next up, Raf Simons debuted its psychedelic AW20 campaign over the weekend. Shot by Willy Vanderperre the campaign sees the muted new collection contrasted against a vibrant fiery-skied backdrop.
In other news, KidSuper showcased its SS21 collection via a digital stop-motion presentation. The presentation featured Barbie dolls with their heads replaced with 3D prints of Colm Dillane’s heroes, like Pablo Picasso and Freddie Mercury.
And to round off today, Beyoncé and the NAACP have joined forces to support Black-owned businesses affected by COVID-19. The Black-Owned Small Business Impact Fund will offer businesses $10,000 grants and the application for the grant is open until 19 July.
That’s all for today. It’s Sam with CULTED.
