These are the stories making headlines in fashion on Wednesday.

Yeezy Season 6 is reportedly staying at NYFW
Rihanna provided a much-needed glimmer of hope for the American fashion industry when she announced that Fenty Puma would be returning to the New York Fashion Week calendar after two seasons showing in Paris. And now, sources say Kanye West is in talks with the CFDA to secure a slot for his Adidas-affiliated Yeezy collection. West's decision to stay put is a win for NYFW, as its September calendar has been in a frenzy with top talents — including Joseph Altuzarra and Thom Browne — chosing to relocate their Spring 2018 shows to Paris. {WWD}

Adidas sues Forever 21 — again — for using stripe design
A battle of sewn stripes is underway as Adidas takes Forever 21 to court again for allegedly employing stripes "confusingly similar" to their well-known and long-trademarked three-stripe design. The German sportswear company claims the Los-Angeles based fast fashion retailer has used their recognizable lines on a range of apparel, sportswear and shoes. The goods at issue not only represent infringement of Adidas' intellectual property, but constitute breach of contract on the side of Forever 21, due to a previous settlement agreement with Adidas over earlier accusations of infringement. {WWD}

Reebok creates revolutionary space boot for astronauts 
Reebok will follow in Chanel's "astrophile" footsteps with the launch of a functional space boot for 2018. The global footwear label has partnered with aerospace group David Clark Company to develop innovative space shoes using Reebok's Floatride Foam technology, which will decrease its overall weight while providing added comfort and support to the wearer. The style-conscious aero-boots are currently being tested by astronauts for an upcoming mission at the International Space Station, but for those more keen on star gazing from rooftops, try pairing the boot with a Chanel glitter tweed tunic — so Zenon z-chic! {High Snobiety}

Cara Delevingne talks upcoming movies and new hair styles with WWD
In a new interview with WWD, Cara Delevingne spoke openly about wanting to live in the sci-fi fantasy world of her new movie "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets" and not needing luscious hair — or any hair, actually — to feel beautiful. The 24-year-old model-actress — who now sports a platinum blonde buzz — said: "It's still a weird feeling to kind of brush my hand past my hair. But just doing it really was liberating. The kind of power and not needing hair to be beautiful, and that was the message I really thought I needed to spread."{WWD}
