What we know about Elsa Hosk’s brand

Helsa is coming. Lauded for her personal style, Swedish supermodel and mega influencer Elsa Hosk has answered the prayers of her fans with the unveiling of her new brand, Helsa. Launching today, the sustainably-minded line takes inspiration from Hosk’s affinity for all things Scandinavian, as well as her new journey as a mother, ’90s silhouettes, simple clean lines, art, and architecture. Giving her 8 million followers an exclusive sneak peek before the official release, Hosk revealed some of her favorite pieces, including a recycled heavy-duty cotton shirt and skirt set, oversized organic poplin shirts, a buttery-soft vegan leather trench, recycled cashmere knits, and a body-con jersey mini dress that looks like a dead ringer for the one made famous by Carrie on her trip to Barney’s in Sex and the City. Speaking about the line, which will be sold DTC as well as via Revolve and FRWD, the 33-year-old said: “It was important to me not [to] make a fast fashion brand. I wanted each piece to be special, timeless, and something that’s so classic and beautifully made that you will keep it in your closet forever. And keeping sustainability in mind, wherever possible using recycled, organic, or natural fabrics. But it was also important for me that everyone was able to get something from each drop so I think Helsa sits somewhere in between [an affordable and luxury brand].” Shop the debut collection here.

Jennifer Lawrence is Vogue’s October cover star

Vogue’s October cover is already here—with Jennifer Lawrence styled by Tonne Goodman and lensed by Tina Barney starring front and center. As she models an array of Erdem, Brandon Maxwell, Altuzarra, and Dior, the world-famous actress delivers a raw, candid, and often hilarious interview with writer Abby Aguirre. The 32-year-old Oscar winner, who reveals in the profile that her baby son’s name is Cy as a nod to the painter Cy Twombly, speaks from the heart about how politics has divided her and Kentucky-based Republican family. “I just worked so hard in the last five years to forgive my dad and my family and try to understand: It’s different. The information they are getting is different. Their life is different…I’ve tried to get over it and I really can’t. I can’t. I’m sorry I’m just unleashing, but I can’t fuck with people who aren’t political anymore. You live in the United States of America. You have to be political. It’s too dire. Politics are killing people.” Lawrence also slams male politicians in the wake of the decision to overturn Roe v Wade, labels Donald Trump a “dangerous, dangerous jar of mayonannaise,” reveals the hilarious affirmation she instructed her husband Cooke Maroney to chant to her while in labor, “Don’t be a pussy. It’s not that bad. Don’t be a pussy. It’s not that bad.” It’s safe to say, there’s plenty of reasons why Lawrence is a national treasure. Read the interview, and hear more about her upcoming projects, here.

Jerry Seinfeld to star in Kith’s Fall campaign 

It’s as New York as it gets. Comic Jerry Seinfeld is Kith’s new leading man—starring in the brand’s Fall ’22 campaign photographed by Mark Seliger. Kith founder, Queens-born Ronnie Fieg, tapped Seinfeld (a Queens College alumnus) to model the brand’s collection for the City University of New York, created with Russell Athletic. The Fall lineup will include collaborations with New Balance, more 8th St by Ronnie Fieg for Clarks Originals, and an increased focus on original ready to wear. Think: Italian leather, sherpa outerwear, double-knit suiting, satin varsity jackets, and more. The aforementioned CUNY capsule, specifically for Queens College and Brooklyn College, began through Kith’s nonprofit arm, The Kinnect Foundation, and will support scholarship opportunities for students. The collection launches on September 9.

Iconique! Elizabeth Hurley teams up with Karen Millen 

Speaking of icons: Karen Millen has unveiled the third chapter of its ICONS series. And none other than Elizabeth Hurley, whose sensual style helped defined ’90s dressing, is leading the latest iteration (following in the footsteps of Paulina Porizkova and Helena Christensen). Hurley, 57, fronts the campaign, which takes its inspiration from both the early years of the Karen Millen brand, fused with her own polished personal style. As such, this new line is brimming with pieces that are unapologetically sexy, form-fitting, glamorous, and scene-stealing…just like Liz. We’ll take a leaf out of her book, any day! Shop it here.
