PARIS — Celebrating 20 years, An Vandevorst and Filip Arickx on the final day of Paris Couture Week presented a showcase of 40 looks built around house codes, and integrating archive pieces still tacked with their storage tags. Case in point the opening cognac leather corset fashioned from a horse saddle that was from their very first collection, here strapped over a black hoodie.
The following exit — a shirtdress masquerading as a white cotton pillowcase, with a padded section strapped to the back and a square skirt embroidered with the designers’ initials, recalled their second collection, for spring 1999, where models stretched out on midcentury hospital beds before hitting the catwalk. Their military and lingerie obsessions were also intact, from a silhouette based on layers of stockings in nude tones, paired with a flipped, deconstructed jacket, to an army parachute skirt with a dramatic train.
Super-influencer @chiaraferragni doesn't miss a beat— or a party. Last night, she inaugurated Pomellato's newest boutique on Rodeo Drive, decked out in bling from the jewelry brand. At the event, Ferragni took some time to sit down with us to discuss motherhood, being a newlywed, and the hotly-anticipated documentary she is currently filming.

As the conversation around sustainability only grows stronger in fashion circles, Everlane has made a new declaration: it’s saying goodbye to virgin plastic. The company, whose ethos is all about “radical transparency,” in terms of pricing and ethical factories, plans to be completely free of virgin plastics by 2021. “We’re producing millions of units and every unit that goes out is wrapped in plastic,” said founder and CEO, Michael Preysman. “At the beginning, it was like, ‘Hey, let’s just take off all these plastic bags.’ There are a lot of complications to that. Everything you buy in the world comes wrapped in plastic when it comes out of the factory.”
