Irina Shayk covers Highsnobiety for its debut print magazine
Splashed on the cover of Highsnobiety’s inaugural edition of HIGHStyle, the publication’s debut print magazine, is Irina Shayk. For the cover story, Shayk sat down with journalist Alex Frank to talk all things Irina—from her humble upbringing in Russia and her no-nonsense approach to motherhood to landing her breakthrough gig with Sports Illustrated and dating rumors about Kanye West. The fashion icon, as she’s lovingly referred to, was the perfect candidate for the opening cover, and the imagery is proof. Delightfully matched with the words is Heji Shin’s photographic excellence, in which Shayk shows off a blend of feminine and masculine ready to wear (because she does what she wants!) from Prada, Miu Miu, Marc Jacobs, and the list goes on.

Prada to unveil simultaneous offerings in Milan and Shanghai
In celebration of its return to a physical runway, and the often overlooked luxury of transcending borders through digital interaction, Prada is scheduled to reveal its Spring 2020 collection in Milan and Shanghai synchronously. Aptly named “Synchronic Views,” the events will take place on September 24—at 3 p.m. in Milan and 9 p.m. in Shanghai. Designed collaboratively by Miuccia Prada and Raf Simmons, the collection will be shown in both digital and physical formats. Those in attendance will be able to watch the collection’s bulk dance down the runway in front of them, as well as through a screen presenting the simultaneous runway thousands of miles away. In a statement, the brand referred to its slated debut as “a celebration of the unique experience of the runway, and the power of technology to transcend borders, to unite.” Want a seat at both? Make your way to Prada.com, where the shows will be streamed, on September 24.

Versace debuts collaborated glass vase collection with Venini
Versace and hand-blown glass purveyor Venini just dropped a capsule that will make your holiday (too soon??) dinner parties a success! The duo is a long-established one, with a history dating back to 1997, when Gianni Versace debuted a limited-edition series of glass creations. Now, twenty something years later, they’re back in business to celebrate the centenary of VENINI—and with a capsule of three glass vases to show for it. The vases—namely, the VVV, the SMOKING, and the GESSATO—were each made with different processing techniques and, of course, with Italian craftsmanship top of mind. Each piece is numbered and stamped with the house’s iconic gold-leaf Medusa. The capsule will be presented during Milan Fashion Week, at the Venini boutique in Via Montenapoleone and at the Versace Home boutique in Via Durini. Come October, the vases will be shop-able and ready to make their way to your home!
Nicki Minaj sent to “Twitter jail” over vaccine tweets?
Nicki Minaj took to her Twitter account on Monday to share the reasoning for her absence at the Met Gala on Monday evening: the event’s vaccination requirement. “They want you to get vaccinated for the Met,” she wrote. “If I get vaccinated it won’t be for the Met. It’ll be once I feel I’ve done enough research. I’m working on that now.” Please do. Minaj later claimed she had been locked out of her account following another Tweet, which suggested the vaccine caused her cousin’s friend to become “impotent.” A Twitter spokesperson later denied any action taken to suspend her account.
They want you to get vaccinated for the Met. if I get vaccinated it won’t for the Met. It’ll be once I feel I’ve done enough research. I’m working on that now. In the meantime my loves, be safe. Wear the mask with 2 strings that grips your head & face. Not that loose one 🙏♥️
