After the fall of Kanye West, Adidas is trying to figure out what to do with $1.2 billion in unsellable products | Culture

On October 25, one of the most lucrative urban fashion alliances in recent years officially came to an end.

Through a statement, Adidas announced the immediate end of its collaboration with Kanye West (now named Ye) and their joint brand, Yeezy. This was the sportswear giant’s reaction to the antisemitic remarks made by the American rapper and businessman – just one of his many controversial episodes.

The urban fashion partnership – which began in 2015 and put Adidas at the forefront of “streetwear” culture – is now over. However, there are still many issues that need to be resolved.

The heritage of the Adidas-West collaboration is not only symbolic, but also material. This month, the firm estimated that by not putting up its stock of Yeezy products for sale, it will lose $1.2 billion – a major hit on the company’s finances, reportedly representing about 10% of annual revenue. How Adidas will manage its future is now a mystery. The same goes for the urban fashion community, with one of its iconic brands in deep trouble.

Kanye West’s arrival to Adidas in 2015 was an earthquake in the urban fashion industry – a sector that is estimated to generate about $173 billion in global sales per year. At the height of his popularity, the rapper had released two sneaker models alongside Nike. But West wanted more: total creative control and his own clothing line.

Nike’s refusal to grant him those powers led the artist to knock on the door of rival firm Adidas. Management had noticed how Nike was ahead of them in the urban fashion sector, thanks to the Jordan brand. They promptly accepted Kanye’s offer, thus giving birth to Yeezy: a name that sparked madness among an increasingly fashion-conscious public, thanks to West’s visionary designs.

Lagos designer creates zero-waste fashion brand

A Lagos-based fashion designer is producing zero-waste garments made out of doilies, duvets, sheets and textile waste as raw materials, using environmentally friendly techniques such as smock, embroidery and crochet.

Jéssica António, 28, handmakes fashion pieces in her studio in Praia da Luz. Some with fabrics she buys, others with material she receives from people and a second-hand shop in Lagos, which donates clothing that is too large or cannot be sold.

“Some pieces are 100% zero waste, made using techniques, such as ‘smock’, which is an English technique that I use in many of my pieces”, she says. It is a “very delicate” technique she learned in Denmark, in which a small manual machine with curved needles produces details for parts and accessories.

Using the name J-ANT – the ‘slow fashion’ brand Jessica began developing in 2020 – the designer sells pieces on her website and international platforms. Her clients are mostly foreigners, American or Japanese, or residents in Portugal, such as Brits and Russians, since “it has been difficult, for now, to reach the national market”.

“Most of my customers are foreigners. The Portuguese show interest, but we have to be realistic: they might nothave the money to spend on a piece like this”, notes the designer, defining the style of her creations as “raw” and “relaxed luxury”, in which neutral tones predominate, with a romantic and traditional touch.

Her collection – for which she only uses natural fabrics such as cotton, linen, wool or silk – includes coats, tops and bustiers and, soon, bags made with reused duvets, doilies converted into tops and other pieces made from sheets.

“We also use a lot of men’s suits, which are deconstructed to recreate new pieces”, like the blazer that Carolina Deslandes recently wore

Tommy Hilfiger still doesn’t know where those racism rumors started

The founder of the American legacy brand reflects on the impact of those rumors and his brand’s rise as a staple of streetwear.

If you’re of a certain age, you may recall a rumor that began in the late ‘90s about Tommy Hilfiger — specfically, that the designer appeared on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” and claimed he didn’t make his clothes for Black, Jewish, or Asian people.

This rumor has repeatedly been hilfiger-fashion-not-intended-minorities” data-ylk=”slk:proved;elm:context_link;itc:0″ class=”link rapid-noclick-resp”proved to be absolutely false, but what is true is how much Hilfiger appreciates that his brand has come to represent the intersection between aspirational luxury and streetwear in American culture.

As he launches his new Classics Reborn line, the legendary American designer reflects on the legacy of his brand, including the impact of that racist urban legend, in a recent interview with tommy-hilfiger-interview-fashion-brand-history” data-ylk=”slk:The Guardian;elm:context_link;itc:0″ class=”link rapid-noclick-resp”The Guardian. Hilfiger discusses his brand’s start in the late ‘80s and how times may have changed in the decades since, but what his brand represents has not.

As a brand, Tommy Hilfiger simultaneously evokes youthful American preppydom and hip-hop culture. The brand began in earnest competition with fellow legacy brand Ralph Lauren, synonymous with American luxury, until it blossomed into streetwear. Hilfiger credits his brand’s rise to the most popular American brand of the ‘90s with its ability to hold space between those two seemingly disparate aesthetics that buzzy campaigns starring the late singer Aaliyah and other hip-hop and R&B icons of the era best exemplify.

“It was a perfect storm. I was dressing Puff Daddy for his tours. I was dressing Biggie Smalls. I was dressing

Judge Rules Hailey Bieber Can Continue Promoting Rhode Skin-Care Line Amid Trademark Infringement Lawsuit

A judge has ruled that Hailey Bieber can move forward with her skin-care brand, Rhode, for now, after a clothing brand by the same name filed a trademark infringement lawsuit against her back in June in which they requested a preliminary injunction.

A month after that initial trademark infringement filing, the fashion brand’s cofounders, Purna Khatau and Phoebe Vickers, filed an emergency letter motion on Friday in response to a new YouTube documentary released by the model’s company, titled “The Making of Rhode.” According to E! News, a judge “denied the group’s motion for a preliminary injunction without prejudice,” which allowed Bieber to release the video and to continue promoting her brand despite the ongoing trademark lawsuit. In the 17-minute video about the foundations of her beauty line, Bieber also briefly explains the inspiration behind the name, saying, “I always knew I wanted to create a brand around the name ‘Rhode,’” which is both her and her mother, Kennya Baldwin’s middle name.

In a statement to the outlet, Bieber’s family lawyer, Michael Rhodes, said, “We are pleased with the court’s thorough order denying plaintiff’s motion to preliminarily enjoin Hailey’s new company and skin-care line.” And a spokesperson for the Rhode clothing brand said in their own statement that this ruling isn’t a victory for Bieber but rather “simply a decision by the judge not to prohibit Hailey Bieber’s skin-care line from using our brand name while litigation proceeds, deferring the ruling until we have the opportunity to gather more evidence.” They added that the designers “remain confident” they will ultimately win this case as, “‘Rhode’ is our name and brand, we built it, and federal and state laws protect it. We ask Hailey to achieve her goals without using the brand name we have spent

Dr. Martens and Central Saint Martins Collaborate on Summer Campaign

LONDON — Martens, meet Martins. 

British footwear brand Dr. Martens is opening its “All Access Summer” campaign to the students of renowned fashion school Central Saint Martins.

More from WWD

The collaboration is to showcase the diverse range of design talent at the school, which counts many household names as graduates, including Phoebe Philo, Kim Jones, Alexander McQueen and many more.

The five chosen students have been picked out by the fashion program’s course director Fabio Piras and Dr. Martens creative director Darren McKoy. The brand donated money to the course and provided each student with a financial bursary to help execute their ideas.

The brief, set by McKoy, was to translate the theme of “All Access Summer” to each student’s taste with a rebellious element incorporated into it to represent the brand, which became a staple among youth subcultures in ’70s Britain.

“Creativity and community are core values of Dr. Martens, which is why there is such a natural synergy between the brand and the incredibly talented students of CSM. We are so proud to partner with this powerhouse of originality and imagination shining a light on designers who have traveled from around the world to hone their craft in London,” McKoy said in a statement.

The end product will be debuted on 1 Granary, a platform created by CSM students in 2012 to help spotlight the university’s talent.

“My role as course director is to shape students to be critical and resilient, whilst believing in their creativity and talent. That’s why we’re here, to continue learning and building the students’ portfolios, experience and inspiration, and long may it continue,” Piras said.

The students participating in the project include Francesca Lake from Kingston, Jamaica, whose work focuses on amplifying Caribbean stories; menswear designer Xuesong Yang from
