Acting New York Attorney General Joon Kim has singled out an Adidas executive as playing a main role in paying off young athletes to attend sponsored colleges.
Kim declined to specify Adidas by name during a press conference in Manhattan, but admitted the “Internet is an amazing thing” when discussing the role of James Gatto, Adidas’ Oregon-based director of global sports marketing for basketball, in an alleged scheme to financially bribe high school-age basketball players to attend certain universities it had sponsorship deals with.
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
