Vuarnet is setting up shop with its first store in the U.S.
The French brand, known for its bold cat-eye inspired shapes and mineral lenses and named after the late Olympic gold medal winning French downhill skier Jean Vuarnet, has aggressively expanded its reach since its relaunch in 2015 and is now carried in more than 600 doors in the U.S. market, including Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom. The U.S. boutique marks a second freestanding brick-and-mortar location; the other one is in Paris.
The first retrospective of Dior in the U.S. has landed at the Denver Art Museum — and though the exhibition is a continuation of the 70th-anniversary display that bowed in Paris in 2017, “Christian Dior, Couturier du Rêve,” the DAM show offers an entirely new look at the legacy of the house, and its relationship to the world, writes @leighen .

Norwegian musician Anna of the North (a.k.a. Anna Lotterud ) has had a rapid rise in the U.S., thanks to her song “Lovers” which was included in this summer’s Netflix hit “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.” Next up, a show at Terminal 5. “I’ve never actually done promo or anything in the U.S. before so it’ll be interesting to see,” she tells @leighen . “Because of the Internet I’ve always had American listeners but never been here [playing music].” 📸: @jilliansollazzo #wwdeye
