With sneakers now making up 60 percent of turnover, Harrys of London has expanded its trainer category for fall and introduced technogel insoles — for support — into the label's entire collection of formal and casual footwear."Our Harrys guy is a business man who likes to travel," said Steven Newey, chief executive officer. "He's an active man who needs that sort of style for meetings. But at the same time needs comfort and technology and wants something more relaxed. We try to capture three different moments of his life: business, leisure and sports."For the sneaker man, the label launched the Bolt, a tech leather laceless slip-on creation adorned with a lightning-shaped strip of leather on the side. The Mr. Jones Bolt had a similar aesthetic, but with laces, and is also done in suede. The range is available in several combinations of navy, black, white and yellow. It retails for 395 pounds, or $480, and will be sold on the brand's web site and at the Burlington Arcade store.Elsewhere, the brand debuted its H-Cube Logo line, with hardware in the shape of an H, as seen on a classic loafer. The Contemporary London saw launches such as the Gabriel loafer with fringe embellishments, while Joshua — a desert style — was an addition to the boot category. The brand also debuted its Skydive backpack, created in response to client demand.

In honor of Rihanna’s 30th birthday, we took a look back at an interview with the Barbados-native when she was just 18 years old. Here, she talked about her second album, “A Girl Like Me” in 2006. “I want to be me. I want people to fall in love with who Rihanna is, and that’s why I want the album to be about me so people can really find out who this girl Rihanna is, because they only know the ‘Pon de Replay’ girl.” Fast forward 12 years, and she’s released six more albums and has become a powerhouse in both the fashion and music industries. Happy birthday, @badgalriri 🎈(📷: Pavel Antonov) #wwdarchive
