Affirm, the online payments company founded by PayPal cofounder Max Levchin, now has brick-and-mortar retailer in its sights.
The company made the announcement during the Shoptalk conference in Las Vegas. Its stated goal: “to revolutionize the banking industry to be more accountable and accessible to consumers,” according to its press release. In practical reality, Affirm offers loans covering online and mobile shopping purchases, which are paid back in installments. Now with its new Instore product, it’s going beyond the web to offer financing at physical retail.
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
