It’s CULTED with your Tuesday NEWSRUSH.
First up, Fendi is set to host a physical co-ed show in Milan on 23 September, the first day of Milan Fashion Week. In a statement yesterday Fendi said“at such a sensitive time for the industry, the return of fashion shows represents a fundamental opportunity to enhance the excellence of Italian fashion and relaunch the whole sector”.
In other news, Vivienne Westwood held a protest this morning over Julien Assange’s arrest and extradition hearings which start up again in September. The designer was winched into the air in a giant cage outside of London’s Old Bailey.
Next up, Gap’s shares have fallen by nearly 6% after Kanye West threatened to “walk away” from the upcoming Yeezy deal. During his Presidential campaign rally on Sunday West said “I am not on the board at Gap and that has to change today or I walk away”.
To round off this morning, Off-White is set to release an exclusive Singapore capsule for women called the ‘Paragon’ collection. The line, made up of entirely pink items, launches on 31 July and features two tees, a pair of shorts, a mini bag and crystal earrings.
That’s all for this morning. It’s Sam with CULTED.
