Between that Giambattista Valli gown/oversized cupcake Lena Dunham wore to the Emmys and her BFF bond with Rachel Antonoff, we always knew the Girls creator was into fashion. Turns out Dunham is now taking that interest one step further and producing a documentary for HBO focusing on Bindle & Keep, a Brooklyn-based bespoke tailoring company popular with the LGBTQ community. {Vanity Fair}

Most of us can only dream of palling around with Andy Warhol, or inspiring Halston and Karl Lagerfeld's designs, but model Pat Cleveland lived it. Which means her upcoming memoir is sure to be a juicy read. {Page Six}

U.S. retailers are experiencing the slowest back-to-school season since 2009 — and consumers' online shopping and "webrooming" habits are hurting store traffic and reducing the frequency of impulse buys, respectively. This doesn't bode particularly well for the holiday push. {Bloomberg}
