These are the stories making headlines in fashion on Tuesday.

Gigi Hadid covers Vogue UK
The model took to Instagram this morning to share her sophomore cover for Vogue UK, lensed by Mario Testino and styled by Lucinda Chambers. In the accompanying editorial, she's joined by younger brother and budding model Anwar Hadid, a.k.a. "lil bruv" (her words, not ours). Keep an eye out for the issue when it hits newsstands later this week. {Vogue UK}

Why is the fashion industry keeping quiet about Trump's immigration ban?
Over the weekend, Trump issued an executive order that effectively froze the United States's refugee program and prohibited entry from seven primarily Muslim countries. While this has inspired public outcry from several major tech companies including Apple, Facebook and Google, the fashion industry has largely remained mum on the issue. {Business of Fashion}

Bags of slashed Nike merchandise found outside SoHo store
As wasteful as it is, it's not exactly unheard of for big brands to destroy merchandise that it doesn't plan to sell in an effort to deter third-party retailers from reselling them at full cost — and in some cases, to prevent people who can't afford the sticker price from getting their hands on the product. However, the reasoning behind why bags of mysteriously destroyed Nike sneakers, T-shirts and sweaters were left on the street outside the brand's SoHo location still remains unclear. According to a Nike spokeswoman quoted by the Times, the product in question "did not meet our standards to restock, recycle or donate, so it was disposed of." {The New York Times}
