Slick Woods gives birth mere hours after appearing on Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty runway
Rihanna has always embraced inclusivity, from her highly-varied Fenty foundation shades to the diverse models she employs for her campaigns and her Savage x Fenty show on Wednesday night was no different. One of the models who walked the runway was a heavily pregnant Slick Woods, a 22-year-old regular feature in Rihanna’s projects. Following the show, there were various reports that the model went into labour backstage but now Woods has revealed that the contractions may have even started while she was still on the runway. “A lewk. 14 hours of labour, and a king is born. This is the face of a WOMAN IN LABOUR,” she wrote in an Instagram post that showed her posing at the Savage x Fenty show. Well, Woods will have a pretty bad-ass birth story to tell her son one day. Talk about entering the world in style… (Vogue)
Marc Jacobs is back to his old ways with a super delayed show at NYFW
If the timing was just right for Slick Woods, it was the exact opposite for Marc Jacobs. The designer, who has been been notorious for his late runway shows in the past, seemed to fall back into that old routine this week following years of runway punctuality. The show, which was supposed to begin at 6:00pm on Wednesday night, ran over 90 minutes late and led to the subsequent departure of many show-goers and fashion editors. Anna Wintour, however, notably remained seated.
But tardiness isn’t the only reason the show has been all over the news. In fact, Twitter has been teeming with accusations that the designer delayed the show on purpose. Why? InStyle pointed out that Marc Jacobs usually closes NYFW, but this year the Savage x Fenty show began at 7:30, therefore claiming the closing spot. So did Jacobs purposefully hold off to reclaim the last show of the night? Was he trying to prevent people from attending Rihanna’s show, which was down in Brooklyn? Well, after the rumour mill got started he quickly posted an Instagram, writing an apology and (slightly convoluted) explanation of why the show ran late. “It was my wishful thinking that we could accomplish all that needed to be done for this show with the circumstances we faced. I was wrong. Not because everyone didn’t make every effort of give it there all and more, life is just that way sometimes,” he wrote. What do we think? Do we believe it? (InStyle)
Jason Wu is collaborating with 3×1 on his first denim collection
Since being named a finalist in the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund in 2008, Jason Wu has gone on to create a huge name for himself in the fashion world. But this new collection is quite a departure from the traditionally elegant pieces people are used to seeing. For the first time ever, the young designer will be experimenting with denim. Wu has steadily begun to embrace more ready-to-wear pieces, recently rebranding his main line as Jason Wu Collection, leaving Jason Wu as a secondary line that includes more everyday pieces. The Spring 2019 collection for Jason Wu includes a denim collaboration with Scott Morrison of 3×1. It will feature a variety of jeans with different cuts and washes and will range in price from $225 to $325. (Vogue)
Mytheresa.com’s latest collaboration is with Tod’s
Mytheresa.com is no stranger to collaborations and their latest will feature an exclusive partnership with footwear label, Tod’s. The collection, which is comprised of rich velvet-covered loafers and sneakers in jewel tones, includes the perfect transitional shoes for fall–or skateboarding, apparently. The collab is dubbed “Tods 80km/h” and the campaign images feature blonde models in denim cut-offs riding around on skateboards. A short film featuring skateboarders Lisa and Jasmin Bolt will be revealed at the launch on September 12th. (WWD)
