Today is #NationalJerseyDay and no this isn’t about NJ. In 2015, Tommy Hilfiger created a collection of traditional athletic uniforms with a feminine touch for F/W NYFW. It was a way to look at the fashion of football jerseys. The show was said to be a youthful and vibrant rebranding effort for TH’s womenswear range. All I want to do now is to find a leather jersey!

Longchamp recently came out with their MY PLIAGE SIGNATURE bags. Basically, you can customize them however you want with the relief of knowing that they're eco-friendly. But if a bag is mass-produced, is it really eco-friendly? It seems like that's the opposite of being sustainable. You know the saying, reduce, reuse, recycle. Sure they're reusing recycled plastic bottles to create the fabric but they're not helping the reduce part of being sustainable when we're still consuming the bags and they're creating more products. Guess you can say the same for any brand that boasts about being sustainable. Personally, I'd rather buy a bag that was made from recycled materials but hopefully they're not creating these bags just to hop on a trend of being sustainable.

Are environmentally-friendly mass produced items truly sustainable?  content media

It's hard to believe that just 5 years ago, Harper's Bazar reported that the Juicy Couture tracksuit became such a relic that it became a part of an exhibit in the London V&A Museum. Kim Kardashian's brand skims announced today that they are launching a more luxurious version of the velour tracksuit on Oct. 21st. Seems like velour and 2000s style, in general, is coming back in style. I've already signed up for the waitlist.

Seems like this season was all about baggier fits and oversized clothing. Apparently, LV's creative director, Nicolas Ghesquière, wanted to make this seasons show non-binary as a nod to the angels in the Wes Wendermen's film, Wings of Desire. I already know that long baggy shorts won't look good on me but it's different from the skin-tight clothing that we're used to - thanks, Kim. Something that the brand wasn't able to capture on video was that on the jackets, the fit could be adjusted from tighter to generously loose. Overall, some of the styles that walked down I'm okay with but I'm not sure if I can get over the clog looking shoes. What do you guys think? Read more on Vogue

Just watched the LV ss21 video and my brain almost hurts from the constant cutting to different viewpoints. I could hardly even concentrate on the clothes themselves. Having green screens everywhere definitely made the video less boring but I think they overdid it. However, it's definitely more interactive than streaming just a traditionally runway show.
