Fendi and Skims collaboration rumors swirl

Rumors are swirling – is Fendi working on a collaboration with Kim Kardashian’s Skims? The images were shared on Instagram by UK-based personal shopper @connie_personal_shopping showcasing the planned pieces. These include a series of white and orange stretch-knit dresses and twin sets with embossed Fendi logos throughout. This isn’t the first collaboration under Kim Jones’ belt. Fendi recently launched its collaboration with Versace – Fenadace – at the end of Milan Fashion Week. Although there has been no confirmation from the Italian fashion house or the shapewear company, the Skims x Fendi collaboration is expected in November.

Amber Valletta Named Sustainability Ambassador for Karl Lagerfeld

Amber Valletta is the new sustainability ambassador for Karl Lagerfeld and she will work on “product initiatives and her overall sustainability journey”. She is currently the Sustainability Ambassador for the Fashion Institute of Technology and the Sustainability Editor for British vogue. “It feels like a wonderful, natural tribute to Karl, because he was such an innovator himself,” she said. “For me, it will always be innovation and creativity that will solve the challenges of fashion in this sector.”

In April, Valletta collaborated with the brand on a sustainable collection using cactus leather and materials sourced from the environment. “[Amber] will greatly help us explore new, innovative ways to drive change together and have real impact,” said Pier Paolo Righi, CEO of Karl Lagerfeld.
