Serena Williams Has Responded to Her Catsuit Being Banned From the French Open (The Cut)
Earlier this summer Serena Williams returned to the French open, piquing fashion interest by wearing a Nike catsuit rather than the traditional skirt. While her style was applauded, that wasn’t the only reason she chose the ensemble. Williams is at risk for blood clots and the suit helps with her circulation. Unfortunately, it didn’t go over well with everyone. This weekend Bernard Giudicelli, the president of the French Tennis Federation, announced that catsuits would be banned going forward. Williams has since responded and seems unfazed. “I feel like if and when, or if they know that some things are for health reasons, then there’s no way that they wouldn’t be okay with it,” she said.“I think it’s fine.” In the meantime, she always has her Nike collaboration with Off-White to wear!
Farmland Industries Politely Shades Supreme Over Logo Theft (The Fashion Law)
Supreme has long received heat for its logo bearing a resemblance to the work of Barbara Kruger. With that in mind, you’d think the company would be more careful when homaging other logos. Apparently not. The skate brand recently issued a hat that replaces its familiar white-text-on-red-block iconography with a patch that looks a lot like the Farmland Industries logo. Naturally, Farmland noticed, and in a delightfully polite tweet the food brand took it upon itself to consider it a collab. “Farmland x Supreme” is the mash-up we didn’t know we needed until right now.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex Have Adopted a Dog (Harper’s Bazaar UK)
Meghan Markle’s beagle Guy has a new sibling — the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have adopted a new dog! Details (like the pup’s age, breed, and name) are still under wraps, but apparently it is already happily at home at Nottingham Cottage, where the newlyweds live. In other news, it appears the royal wedding is continuing to set trends. This time, it’s their reception car that is making waves. Prince Harry notably drove himself and Markle off in an exclusive, battery-powered Jaguar convertible. The car company has received so much attention for it that it will sell models upon “expression of interest.”

MoMA Collaborates With Yayoi Kusama on Skateboards (Dazed)

MoMA has plenty of other artist skateboards to lavish yourself with.
