NYFW Makes More Money Than the Super Bowl

Fashion is better than football…

At least when it comes to revenue: A new congressional study has shown that New York fashion week makes nearly $900 million for the city, compared with the paltry $500 million brought in by the Super Bowl last year. If for some reason you ever get involved in debates about the relative merits of fashion and sports (perhaps a point of contention in the Bündchen-Brady household?), now you have some nice objective facts to back you up.

Yeezy arrives…

The most-talked-about sneaker of the year, Kanye West’s Yeezy 750 Boost for Adidas, has finally made it to New York—not that you can buy it. All that can be seen is a single shoe, displayed like a sacred artifact in the windows of the Adidas store in Soho. Talk about hype. [Complex]

What dancers and dogs have in common…

Even for a designer, Simone Rocha has an eclectic set of inspirations. Here, she annotates images of things that have influenced her, covering everything from Pina Bausch and Francis Bacon to her dachshund, Rufus. [T]

More changes are afoot at Gucci…

Today brings more evidence that Alessandro Michele is leading Gucci in a new direction. The label will put on only one show later this month in Milan, instead of the separate shows for press and buyers that were held in seasons past. Is this a sign that Michele has a show-topping spectacle planned or that the guest list is being tightly edited? We’ll let you know. [WWD]

Because she’s worth it…

It has been a good season for older women in fashion campaigns—just think of Joni Mitchell’s appearance for Saint Laurent or the sensation caused by Joan Didion’s Céline ad. And now there’s Helen Mirren, the latest face of L’Oréal Paris. If the antiaging cream she’s selling has the effect on everyone that it seems to have on her, it will surely be a hit. [YouTube]
