Kim Kardashian covers Allure's "Best of Beauty" issue
As the annual "Best of Beauty" issue, Allure's October issue delivers a close-up, Pat McGrath-highlighted image of Kim Kardashian West. Hailed by the beauty publication as the "queen of Calabasas," the corresponding cover story examines her reign in the Los Angeles hills — and the rest of the world —  through a conversation about contouring, posing nude, the future of KKW Beauty and motherhood. {Allure}

Glossier is being sold at Colette

Rolling Stone is up for sale
Jann S. Wenner started Rolling Stone out of his San Francisco apartment in the '60s. Though the magazine would go on to define decades of culture and produce a slew of iconic covers, it has not been able to withstand the punches thrown by the weakening publishing industry. So, 50 years since its inception, the Wenners are selling their company's controlling stake in Rolling Stone and cutting his ties with the publication. {The New York Times}

Erdem to boost brand awareness through H&M capsule

How Iris Van Herpen conceptualizes couture 
Forward-thinking fashion designer Iris Van Herpen does it all: She experiments with 3D printing; plays with mediums like metal and silicone when designing a new collection; and makes works of structural art that seem less suited for a woman's body and better fit for a curated exhibit exploring the inventive use of materials. "Van Herpen's work unites the most forward-looking technology with artisanal craftsmanship," writes Rebecca Mead for The New Yorker, in a piece that examines how the designer conceptualizes couture. {The New Yorker

Robots are the future movers and shakers of the retail industry
In a post-retail apocalyptic world, humans may be fully removed from the manufacturing and shipping equation. In a new piece, Bloomberg explores this idea by turning the clock forward to 2036 and envisioning the process of making a shoe from start to finish, beginning with robots loading shoes from factories in China onto California-bound ships, to doorstep deliveries performed by drones. {Bloomberg}
