Dior was originally scheduled to present its latest menswear collection on Saturday, January 19, but has decided to push its presentation up a day — to Friday the 18th — so as not to coincide with a “yellow vest” protest expected on Saturday. The  protests have been ongoing for months, due to anger “driven by high living costs and frustration at President Emmanuel Macron’s leadership,” with Chanel and Dior stores being the targets of vandalism at times.

Pitchfork Founder Ryan Schreiber Leaves the Site, them Gets a New Editor (Billboard / Ad Week)
According to a memo from Condé Nast president Bob Sauerberg, Pitchfork founder and CEO Ryan Schreiber is stepping down from his position. Schreiber founded the music publication in 1995, and it was sold to Condé in 2015. “I’m at a point in my life where I feel I have more to offer … and the idea of giving myself over to something new really excites me,” Schreiber told Billboard. “I’ve done so much with this platform and it’s been super rewarding and it’s been really amazing, but I feel like this is the time if I want to do something else and this is a particularly great time in terms of technology and how things are evolving.”

In other Condé news, them, the LGBTQ+ vertical formerly helmed by Phillip Picardi, has a new executive editor —Whembley Sewell, a former channel manager at Teen Vogue. Congrats!
