Humberto Leon and Carol Lim Take Their Final Bow at Kenzo
A few weeks ago, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim surprised fans by announcing they were stepping down as co-creative directors of Kenzo. On Sunday, the duo presented their final collection, mixing the bold patterns the house is known for with modern silhouettes and details — including ruched mini-dresses, fanny packs, and sneakers. Leon and Lim certainly went out on a high note. The show was also scored by and featured a live performance by Solange. It was a final reminder of how Kenzo has become known as an innovator in terms of presenting fashion and for the cadre of artists and celebrities that are happy to lend a creative hand.

Prada Launches Recycled Nylon Collection (Business of Fashion)
Prada is taking a major step towards becoming more sustainable. The house has launched “Re-Nylon,” a collection of its iconic nylon bags made out of recycled materials like ocean plastics. The capsule’s bags will retail for roughly 20 percent less than its virgin nylon counterparts, and a portion of the sales will go towards a UNESCO project focused on sustainability. But that’s just the beginning! The label’s goal is to have all of its nylons be made from recycled materials by 2021.

Guillaume Henry Teases a First Look at the New Patou (Vogue)
Guillaume Henry has declared that Patou will be a “friendly brand,” and thus has cast his friends and atelier workers to display his first pieces. He has also promised that the friendliness will extend to Patou’s pricing, which will place the brand in a mid-level range. “My friends say, I can’t find anything to wear — they want to invest in things they can wear all the time,” he tells Vogue. “I want to be able to dress my cousin in Dijon too. I’m so not an artist — I’m more like an artisan. I just want to dress girls with love.”

James Whiteside Brings Ballet to Thom Browne’s Runway
James Whiteside, principal dancer with the American Ballet Theater, gave a stunning performance at Thom Browne’s Spring 2020 menswear show this weekend. Whiteside’s appearance fit into Browne’s sports-themed collection, which included fantastical interpretations of technical athleticwear. Fun fact, his pointe shoes matched the pinstripe pattern of his tutu-suit!

The collection itself was a reminder that Browne is one of the most humorous and inventive designers working today. At once questioning masculine ideals by subverting the theme of organized sports while showing off technical prowess, Browne proves that he not only has the creativity to present unique collections, but the skills to pull them off as well.
