  • The 28-year-old designer at the head of Balmain doesn’t mind being knocked off!  In a recent interview, Olivier Rousteing pointed to a quote from Coco Chanel as his reasoning for why he doesn’t see fast fashion brands like Zara and H&M as cheapening his brand.  “I think it was Coco Chanel who said if you’re original, be ready to be copied,” he said.  “I love seeing a Zara window with my clothes mixed with Celine and Proenza [Schouler]! I think that’s genius. It’s even better than what I do!”  The designer went on to say it’s the perfect way for everyone to get a piece of the designs.  So don’t feel bad when you’re getting it for less! (The Independent)


  • According to Kendall Jenner and her family, being a Kardashian has actually made it harder to make her foray into being a serious model.  “People think that this [success] just came to me. But it didn’t.” she said.  “What I have has almost worked against me. I had to work even harder to get where I wanted because people didn’t take me seriously as a model. Because of the TV show.” The best parts for her: when she walks into a casting and people don’t recognize her.  (The Cut)


  • Jewelry company BaubleBar is reportedly working on its first iOS application as well as other online features for its website.  After raising $10 million in Series B funding lead by Burch Creative Capital, a firm headed by Chris Burch, the company is seeking to expand.  Having gotten their start online, they’ve already expanded offline via exclusive partnerships with Nordstrom and Anthropologie, and soon may be available right in your pocket via an app.  Keep a look out for it!
