The Link-list November 21

1. This article threw me initially - a future of fashion determined by male consumerism? But as I read on, I agreed more and more with the points raised. You don’t see hoards of girls and women lined up in question for drops, do ya?

2. Always impressed with the representation on the BoF Voices event line-up.

3. Global waste generation will be nearly double by 2050. What are you gunna do about it?

4. The work of Benji B - his work ethic and progression - has been incredible. Now he is Music Director for Louis Vuitton menswear!

5. Why is streetwear - when so well positioned to make positive change - notably silent on environmental impacts?

The Link-list November 7

1. The Lyst Index (Q3) 2018 is here! OFF-WHITE is at number 1, with Gucci + Balenciaga coming in hot behind. What a year it has been for luxury ‘streetwear’.

2. How Netflix expanded to 190 countries in 7 years. Now that’s a growth strategy.

3. Best news ever! Christopher Ræburn announced as Timberland’s first-ever Creative Director! He’s going to to great things for this brand. Congrats Christopher.

4. I believe that purpose-driven brands are the future. That’s why I am continuously stoked about Adidas’ innovation development when it comes to ocean plastics.

5. YEEZYs are finally available for anyone - but no-one cares! A lesson learnt in value proposition v product availability. Surprised that the Yeezy team got this one wrong.

The Link-list October 24

1. Instagram likes are now a serious metric for investors in luxury brands including Burberry, Gucci and Saint Laurent, Dior and Louis Vuitton… well duh?

2. Awesome! Everlane is eliminating virgin plastic from its business—starting with a new outerwear collection.

3. Palace x Ralph Lauren! Here we go again folks….

4. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Fashion For Good at Copenhagen Fashion Summit this year - when I’m beyond excited to see their new museum launch, which is an interactive gaming and shopping experience that teaches you about sustainable fashion at the same time

5. “Everyone I know buys vintage”… same, and I’m loving Depop right now!

The Link-List October 10

1. Yeh, I just bought a second hand LV bag for the internet so would agree.

2. "Moving forward no longer seems to be a priority. It's just the endless drops of products that give the impression of constant renewal". Angelo Flaccavento really is one of my favourites.

3. After Farfetch’s big IPO earlier this year, how will influencer-fuelled Revolve do?

4. Recently discovered MAEKAN and can’t get enough of their selection of really clever, creative people. Really worth checking out.

5. Cam from GQ in NYC is amazing anyway, but this super-cute review of his visit to Hypefest is just the best.

The Link-list 26 September

1. Ever since breifly working with him in NY last year, Cam Wolf is probs one of my favourite journalists. His take on Nike in this long-read piece is brilliant - the insights are gold.

2. Swizz Beatz on getting past the hype point with Sotheby’s. This is just a beautifully intelligent pairing that digs into cultural development. I’ve watched it about 6 times this month + I recommend taking 5 to do the same.

3. Burberry’s new logo got blasted (in a both positive and negative light) this season. But this piece from Highsnobiety which pairs 4 digital artists with the brand to reimagine the logo is just stunning - especially the offering from Wang & Söderström.

4. Instagram’s Co-Founders are stepping down from the company. Could this imply a hazy future for the platform? If they don’t find a way to (organically) monetise soon, they could be in trouble - and apparently Snap is ready to bounce-back on this front via a new tech partnership with Amazon. Yikes.

5. And another state-side rival to Tapestry + PVH is born. Capri Holdings purchased Versace this week in their next step to create the American luxury conglomerate… what does it mean for the future of the Italian house? Just please don’t use the term ‘aspirational’.
