Willow Smith's First Chanel Campaign Has Arrived [Instagram]
Since being named as a Chanel brand ambassador in March, Willow Smith has been a front-row fixture at Karl Lagerfeld's various shows around the globe.

Adidas Resurrects '90s Kate Moss Photo for Relaunch of Gazelles [Business of Fashion]
Adidas is hoping to have another Stan Smith-type success with the relaunch of one of its other vintage styles, the Gazelle. To reintroduce the classic trainer, Adidas has partnered with digital artist Doug Abraham, better known by his Instagram handle, @bessnyc4, to give new life to an archive photo of Kate Moss wearing Gazelles in 1993. Adidas consultant and curator Gary Aspden remarked of the project: "Like the Gazelle, Kate Moss is just as relevant in 2016 as she was back in the 1990s, which is why the image works so well.”

Vetements Announces Collaborations with 18 Brands [The Cut]
DHL isn't the only brand getting a little love from Vetements. It was revealed that the most-buzzed about brand in Paris would be partnering with 18 brands — including Hanes, Manolo Blahnik, Juicy Couture and Levi's — for its upcoming spring presentation on Sunday at The Galeries Lafayette department store. Designer Demna Gvsalia tells The Cut's Cathy Horyn that the decision to collaborate with so many brands was bred out of a desire "to work with manufacturers who specialize in each category — whether it’s jeans, T-shirt, bomber jacket."

Karl Lagerfeld's First Real Estate Project [Pret-a-Reporter Inbox]
Karl Lagerfeld is undertaking a brand-new design project — but this one has nothing to do with apparel. For his first stateside real estate project, the Kaiser will design the lobbies of The Estates at Acqualina in Miami. In partnership with the Trump Group (unrelated to Donald), Lagerfeld will be creating the sunny interiors of the beachside residences. One only has to look as far as his 2017 resort collection for Chanel, which he showed in Havana, Cuba, to imagine what his tropical designs might look like.
