Kim wears Kanye merch on the cover of Billboard, because obviously
Is there any better way to show your love than by wearing a design by your S.O.? Kim Kardashian doesn't seem to think so, and as such, appears on the cover of the latest issue of Billboard in a denim jacket with "Pablo" lettering on the back. We approve. (Obviously.) {Billboard}

"At the end of the day, it's an industry I believe in."
Virgil Abloh — Kanye West's longtime creative consultant who launched his own streetwear-inspired, Milan-based label Off-White two years ago — has experienced a rapid ascent to the top as one of fashion's buzziest brands. "In large part, streetwear is seen as cheap," Abloh said in a new interview. "What my goal has been is to add an intellectual layer to it and make it credible." {Business of Fashion

Meet Ikram Goldman
The woman behind Chicago-based luxury boutique Ikram may not have the kind of name recognition enjoyed by Colette's Sarah Andelman or 10 Corso Como's Carla Sozzani, but within the industry, she's a veritable tour de force. "I can't think of a single similar person from a non-fashion capital — meaning [somewhere other than] New York, Paris, London, Milan — who has the status or stature that she has in the fashion world," Paper's Mickey Boardman told Chicago Magazine in a new profile of Goldman. Quick shopping trip to Chi-town, anyone? {Chicago Magazine}
