Keeping up with Rih…

Rihanna has appeared in her first Puma advertisement since being named the creative director of the athleticwear brand late last year. Puma introduced its latest sneaker, the Pulse XT, this morning via social media, posting the ad featuring Rihanna alongside the caption, “An icon who does it all needs a shoe that can keep up.” [Twitter]

A new lens on luxury…

A new exhibit opened at the Victoria and Albert Museum recently, titled What Is Luxury? The exhibition explores the recent growth in luxury brands and investigates the way in which luxury is made and understood by society, illustrating these concepts with the work of designers, makers, and artists. The exhibit is showing now through September 27. [Victoria and Albert Museum]

In talks with Hannelore…

Model Hannelore Knuts sat down with The Talks to discuss nudity and narcissism. The model said, “There’s nothing wrong with narcissism as long as it’s within some boundaries. It’s a good drive. Narcissism is a sort of self-respect.” Knuts, who is known for her androgynous look, also talked about her views on femininity, saying, “We really do not need tits and ass to be feminine. If I can be part of changing something, to raise curiosity, and to challenge the way people think of femininity, I’d love to be part of that.” [The Talks]

Kendall gets candid…

“You have no idea how many doors closed on me and how many adults were either initially reluctant to take a chance working with me or who outright laughed at me behind my back,” said Kendall Jenner in a recent interview with V Magazine. The model opened up to the publication about her foray into the fashion industry and expressed gratitude toward Marc Jacobs, Riccardo Tisci, Karl Lagerfeld, and Katie Grand for giving her an opportunity in her first runway season.

The end of an era…

Though Karl Lagerfeld and Giorgio Armani are both in their 80s and show no sign of slowing down, many are wondering what the future will hold for their respective brands once the designers retire. Armani stated last year that he has yet to decide what will happen once he is gone, while Lagerfeld is surrounded by strong teams at Chanel and Fendi. [Business of Fashion]
