In case you missed it.
American Eagle Is Making Denim Hijabs [Fashionista]
American Eagle is bringing its denim offerings full circle by offering a brand-new blue-jean staple: a hijab. The head covering is modeled by Muslim model Halima Aden, who has been having a whirlwind 2017, covering Vogue Arabia, Allure and CR Fashion Book and walking in international fashion shows. The denim hijab is available for $19.95 on American Eagle's website.
Olivier Rousteing Photographed Balmain's Fall Campaign [Instagram]
Fashion designer Olivier Rousteing is going the way of Karl Lagerfeld and taking a turn behind the camera. The Balmain creative director photographed the fall 2017 campaign for the French fashion house — his first time shooting for the brand. Rousteing calls the black-and-white campaign — which stars Lara Stone, Natasha Poly and a very naked Jon Kortajarena — "My Paris Diary," as it was shot on the streets of the City of Light. "Being a designer is one thing, having a vision its another thing," wrote Rousteing on Instagram. "I'm proud of those pictures because [they are] personal and it's all my emotions."
Liam Neeson's Son Is Launching an Environmentally Friendly Apparel Line [WWD]
Daniel Neeson, son of actor Liam Neeson (of Love Actually and Taken fame), is dipping into the world of fashion. However, unlike his celebrity-spawn peers, he's not turning to the world of modeling. Instead, the Tulane University student is trying his hand at design, launching a unisex apparel line called Pine Outfitters. The environmentally friendly collection includes hats, joggers, tees and pants, which range from $45 to $350. He launched a pop-up shop in SoHo this week (open through July 19), and the full collection will be available online in September.
