These are the stories making headlines on Wednesday.

Architectural Digest pays a visit to Marc Jacobs' townhouse
And of course, Neville steals the show. But Instagram-famous bull terriers aside, the series of images provides some serious crib envy. The designer's home is designed in a beautiful "old-school glamour" style, and his penchant for art is made clear by the Ed Ruschka and Ellsworth Kelly works decorating his walls. (Oh, and did we mention he has six John Currin paintings? NBD.) {Architectural Digest}

Drake is opening a "Summer Sixteen" pop-up shop
After a very successful "Views" pop-up shop a couple of months back, Drake is back at it again, this time offering "Summer Sixteen" tour merch. The pop-up, located at 208 Bowery, will be open from Thursday until August 7. {Hypebeast}

Turning cow poop into couture?

Taking sustainable fashion to a whole new level, Dutch designer Jalila Essaïdi recently unveiled a collection of ethereal pieces constructed from a lightweight fabric... made from recycled cow dung. Her project looks to ameliorate the current environmental hazard of excessive animal waste. {New York Post}

The brand behind Air Jordans responds to sneaker violence
Sneaker culture — for all its current trendiness — also carries an ugly legacy of violence. Sporting the latest cool, new style can lead to theft or mugging, a recent (and extreme) case being the death of Jamal Gaines, who was killed in his own New Jersey sneaker store. Jordan Brand, which makes some most covetable kicks on the market, today broke its silence on the matter. {Esquire}

Inside the high-tech apparel that brands create for Olympians
Athletes train endlessly for performance on the Olympic arena, so it's no surprise that the clothes they wear work hard, too, and can even give those athletes an edge. Nike utilized 3-D printing to create "small silicone protrusions" to direct air flow around the runner — and that's just one example. {Business of Fashion}
