Savage X Fenty reveals new category, with a little help from Adam Selman
Rihanna has once again teamed up with longtime collaborator, designer Adam Selman, for an exciting new category launch. Revealed today, Savage X Fenty Sport is here to disrupt the activewear sector, with a no-holds-barred offering of pieces that fuse sexiness with sportiness in the empowering, body positive way that Savage X Fenty knows best. With Selman as executive design director of sport and lounge, the emphasis is on pushing the limits of what is traditionally deemed sportswear (and any fans of Adam Selman Sport, aka A.S.S, can attest to that). In a release, Rihanna said: “We wanted to push the boundaries with how we define sport and sportswear and there is no one I’d rather do that with than Adam. We think of sport as how you move through your life. I want people to feel sexy, carefree and powerful when they put these pieces on and Adam is the perfect designer to carry out that vision.” The line of bodysuits, high-waisted leggings, jumpsuits, sports bras, and more will be available to shop on November 9 (early access for Xtra VIP members from November 1). In the meantime, whet your appetite with the campaign featuring Avani Gregg, Precious Lee, Elsa Stallings, Nelita Villezon, Joanna Pauline, and Ayasha.

Umm, who attacked Julia Fox and her Birkin with a machete?!
The Internet, nay TikTok, is a question-inducing place at the best of times. But Julia Fox’s latest update is a particular type of head scratcher. In a clip that’s quickly going viral (we’re talking 1.1 million views already today), the omnipresent Fox shared a look at her grey Hermès Birkin with its noticeable slices as a result of a machete attack. Like those in the comments section, we have many, many queries. Alas, if there’s one thing Fox will always do, it’s surprise us. Answers on a postcard, please!

Cultured & Valentino highlight breast cancer awareness
Pink is synonymous with the tireless work of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and it’s undoubtedly a hue put on the Fall Winter ’22 color wheel thanks to Valentino, so it makes sense that they would meet in the middle this October. Valentino and Cultured teamed up to present a shopping experience and informative panel discussion with Dr. Elizabeth Comen, Kinga Lampert, and Cultured founder Sarah Harrelson at the luxury brand’s Soho boutique yesterday evening. The talk brought to light the hosts’ experience with breast cancer and implored everyone in attendance to always trust their instincts when it comes to health, and to book in for regular early screenings. Among those in the audience listening in—and shopping for a cause!—were Cynthia Rowley, Athena Calderone, Gigi Laub, Marjon Carlos, and Marcy Warren.
