Condé Nast Might Be Selling Three Titles (NY Times)
After a flurry of staff changes at Vogue earlier this week, it appears more shifts might be in the works at Condé Nast. Last night the New York Times reported that the publisher may sell off three of its 14 magazine titles: W, Brides, and Golf Digest. It’s a turbulent time for the print giant — the company reportedly lost $120 million last year — and CEO Robert A. Sauerberg Jr. is expected to address senior staff members on the matter August 8th.

Riccardo Tisci Unveils New Burberry Logo 
Tisci took to Instagram this morning to unveil Burberry’s new logo, and a monogram derived from the initials of the company’s founder, Thomas Burberry. Tisci tapped famed art director Peter Saville for the project, which was completed in four weeks according to an email “conversation” between the two, which was also Instagrammed. While the monogram has a cool 1960s vibe, the logo has the same clean, minimalist look of many other contemporary luxury fashion brands, from Balenciaga to Saint Laurent.

Kanye West and Other Music Stars Grace Harper’s Bazaar‘s September Issue With Their Kids (Harper’s Bazaar)
Kanye, North, and Saint West have nabbed the cover of Harper’s Bazaar in an incredibly cute family photo.  The new issue features several musician’s and their children, including Christina Aguilera with her kids, Lionel and Nicole Richie, Erykah Badu and her girls, as well as Bruce and Jessica Springsteen (who nabbed a cover as well). Given that Town & Country‘s newly released cover also features a celebrity kid (Catherine Zeta-Jones’ daughter, Carys), it’s safe to say fashion is priming us for the next wave of “It” girls and boys.

Sources say we might find out later this year. Maybe. Fashion rumors are so fun!

Leonardo DiCaprio Is Investing in Eco-Fashion (The Hollywood Reporter)
DiCaprio has long been an advocate of environmental causes, donating some $80 million to them over the past 20 years through his charity, The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation. With that in mind, the news of him investing in the eco-friendly shoe brand Allbirds shouldn’t be so surprising. “Creating sustainable consumer products requires a deep commitment from brands that understand the role they have in helping solve our environmental crisis,” DiCaprio said of becoming an investor. “Allbirds is on the forefront of developing new materials that will serve as a model for the footwear industry. This kind of innovation is crucial for creating a more sustainable future.”

Love that high profile celebs are throwing their influence at eco-friendly companies. Nice work Leonardo!! I share this passion too. I have worked in fashion for years and seen its effects on the environment. I crafted a shoe that has substantially less impact on our planet and meets the highest ethical standards for workers. It is a modern, comfort shoe.
