| Burberry power duo, Shayne Oliver contributes to Diesel creations, High tech Prada, Oscars avoids #MeToo and Gucci take on Harry Styles.
Lately we've been covering all things fashion month, from Balenciaga in Paris and Gucci in Milan to Shrimps in London and Coach in New York.
But what have we been reading about? Heres a roundup of the top five fashion news headlines from around the web!
The fashion industry has welcomed the news that Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci will succeed Christopher Bailey as chief creative officer at Burberry, and many are hopeful he and CEO Marco Gobbetti will form a new power duo.
Shayne Oliver has moved on to Diesel, where the brand’s founder, Renzo Rosso, has tapped him to help launch the Red Tag Project, a three-part collaborative series where designers are invited to create capsule collections riffing on Diesel’s denim and sportswear heritage.
Prada last week recruited a CGI Instagram star to launch its AW18 collection – and, from drones to synthetic heads, questions about how tech is changing reality were high on the agenda.
The lead up to the awards had little in the way of demonstrations tied to the industry’s sexual misconduct scandals. On the red carpet at the Oscars Sunday night, all was mostly silent.
Gucci has confirmed that Harry is the face of its as-yet-unreleased tailoring campaign. While his role is confirmed, only one official image has been released, and even that doesn't give much away. Posting to Instagram, Gucci shared a snap with a close crop of Harry's forehead and the shop sign hanging above.
