Kim Kardashian's stolen jewelry has been melted down and sold
According to the mastermind behind the Kardashian robbery, every piece of jewelry except Kim's $4 million engagement ring was melted down and sold in Belgium's jewelry market. The engagement ring, he testified, had too recognizable a stone to be melted down, and is therefore still intact. The man who coordinated the heist told cops that the robbery was "a very simple affair" because of how easy it was to "look on the internet to know... absolutely everything" about Kardashian's whereabouts and possessions. {Page Six}

Britain's young designer showcase Fashion East announces lineup

What does couture actually mean?
There are only 14 designers who technically qualify for the label "haute couture," and that's in part because the rules about what qualifies as haute are pretty stringent. Still, the addition of labels like Iris Van Herpen and Vetements in the haute couture shows of late has signified an ongoing shift in what the term really means. "Couture supposes a high level of creativity and a high level of savoir faire delivered in the atelier," claims Pascal Morand, executive president of the Fédération Française de la Couture, the body that safeguards couture standards. "And also the absolute level of individualization." {New York Times}

Though Alexander Wang has yet to fully release his collaboration with Adidas, which debuted during his spring 2017 runway show-turned-mini music festival in September, the designer is already at work to drop a second collection with the athletic brand. As opposed to the first season's black-and-white color scheme, Wang notes that next season will bring more "iconic Adidas colors," such as "firebird blue, the Stan Smith green and the soccer-jersey orange." Prices will likely range between $80 to $450. {WSJ.
