Louis Vuitton is at the centre of ‘body-shaming’ controversy

Danish model Ulrikke Høyer posted a picture on her Instagram account this week highlighting the mistreatment she received after attending a casting for Louis Vuitton’s Cruise 2017 show in Japan. The model criticised the casting director Alexia Cheval who considered Høyer to be ‘too big’ for the show, despite being a UK size 8. Underneath the photo, she explained how Cheval informed her at the pre-show fitting in Tokyo that she needed to “drink only water for the next 24 hours” as the model had a “very bloated stomach” and “bloated face”, according to Cheval. Despite this, Høyer was later cancelled for the show without a refitting as she didn’t reflect the image that the brand wanted to show. You can read Ulrikke’s post in full here.

Magnum and Moschino join forces for a new campaign with Cara Delevingne

Model and actress Cara Delevingne has teamed up with Moschino for a new campaign with ice cream brand Magnum. Urging viewers to “Release the beast”, the collaboration features a video which stars both the model and Moschino creative director, Jeremy Scott, who also directed the video. The video also brings back to life the designs of animator Uli Meyer, specifically for the campaign. His most notable works such as ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’ and ‘Space Jam’ star alongside Delevingne and Scott in the video which you can watch below. This project highlights the pop essence that characterises Moschino. The collaboration also includes a capsule bag collection full of colour. The campaign was revealed at the Cannes International Film Festival last week and you can see the final result below.

Valentino finds inspiration in hip hop for its Cruise collection

New week, new cruise collection. After Dior and Louis Vuitton, it was time for Valentino. There’s no need to say that this time of the year is the best for fashion designers to let their inspiration fly and explore new influences. Which is exactly what Pierpaolo Piccioli did at Valentino where athleisure was the name of the game. Taking inspiration from hit Netflix series, The Get Down, tracksuits littered the runway with an undeniable old-school hip hop feel. Of course, these were complemented by vaporous dresses, embellished with embroidery and tulle fabric layers. The key accessory was a pair of long pendant earrings in all shapes and colours.
