Wang moves on…

WWD reports that Alexander Wang is in talks with General Atlantic, a private equity firm that also has Tory Burch, Airbnb, BuzzFeed, and Alibaba Group in its portfolio. Considering the breadth of brands in which the firm holds stakes, this seems like a big move for Wang’s brand, and perhaps the one that drew him from Balenciaga. [WWD]

The mind of Zoolander

If the months since the Fall ’15 Valentino show have left you with a Zoolander hankering, we have good news: A new Zoolander 2 trailer has dropped. Don’t miss the trip into Derek’s pea-size brain as he ponders the most perplexing problems of theodicy. [YouTube]

Athleisure without athletes…

Designers love celebrities. They can act as muses, and they’re great for publicity. So why, especially in this age of haute athleticwear, haven’t designers been flocking to professional athletes? It seems like a no-brainer, but for some reason the fashion and sports worlds are pushing back. [The New York Times]

Brooklyn is up and coming…

No, not the borough—it up and came ages ago. We’re talking about Brooklyn Beckham, son of David and Victoria, who has reportedly been signed by a modeling agency. Cue the catwalks! [The Telegraph]

Kate’s crown…

Kate Moss was regal from the start, appearing in a Stephen Jones crown in her first i-D magazine shoot in 1989. Now, thanks to the “Out of the Ordinary” auction at Christie’s in London, it could be yours—but just be warned, it could cost up to $12,500. [i-D]
