It’s CULTED with your Tuesday NEWSRUSH.
First up, Naomi Campbell opened Paris haute couture fashion week yesterday with a powerful speech addressing diversity issues in the industry. Speaking from her home for the digital fashion week, Naomi said “the time has come to collectively call the fashion world to task regarding inequality in our work spaces and in our industry.”
In related news, the opening day saw Dior debut its AW21 couture collection, designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri. The collection was showcased via a mythical film which featured mermaids, tree folk and living statues, however the brand was called out for its lack of diverse casting.
In lighter news, John Galliano will “uncover a new proposal” for Maison Margiela tomorrow via 4 digital teasers. Instead of showing one film, creative director Galliano will show an initial teaser of the collection in Margiela’s scheduled time slot. This will be followed by further teasers on the 11 and 15, leading to a “final revelation” on July 16.
And in none fashion week news, Raf Simons is reissuing 100 pieces from his archive to celebrate 25 years of his eponymous label. The Raf Simons Archive Redux will be revealed this month and will be available to purchase in December.
That’s all for today. It’s Sam with CULTED.
