These are the stories making headlines in fashion on Thursday

Do people still care about Vetements? 
When Vetements and its overly priced DHL T-shirt debuted in 2015, the brand was a welcome and much-hyped disruption in fashion. But today, its costly, tongue-in-cheek streetwear is left untouched on racks, patiently waiting for a customer willing to buy into what many would consider merely a sartorial scam. Highsnobiety spoke to various sources — from buyers to former sales associates at retailers that carry the label — to learn more about the selling and staying power of Vetements. {Highsnobiety}

How Gucci linked up with Major League Baseball
Since Thursday marks Major League Baseball's Opening Day, the fashion world would be remiss not to mention Alessandro Michele's use of MLB logos in his Fall 2018 and Pre-Fall Gucci collections. But when WWD's Bridget Foley went to interview Michele on his out of left field decision to collaborate with the MLB, she was met with a bunch of "no comments." Apparently, both parties are contractually prohibited from speaking about the deal, but that shouldn't stop chic baseball-goers from wearing Gucci caps in their box seats this season. {WWD}

Will the Juicy Couture tracksuit thrive in the age of athleisure? 
What pairs well with Uggs, often has a bedazzled bum and is velour all over? A Juicy Couture tracksuit. The iconic item — worn by the likes of Paris Hilton and Britney Spears — was an early aughts staple that unfortunately faded away. Luckily, Jamie Mizrahi, the company's 29-year-old creative director and celebrity stylist, has been brought on to bring the pink track back. With more modern fits and shapes, The New Yorker explores the ways in which Mizrahi is taking our favorite separates into the future. {The New Yorker
