Anna Wintour to stay "indefinitely" at Vogue
In an effort to silence all the noise about Anna Wintour's rumored departure from Vogue, Bob Sauerberg, chief executive officer of Condé Nast, told WWD that Wintour has agreed to work "indefinitely in her role as editor in chief, Vogue and artistic director of Condé Nast." The thing is, Wintour can't actually stay "indefinitely" forever. {WWD

It's time for an alternative to the itsy-bitsy bikini emoji
The same person who proposed the flat shoe emoji as an alternative to the red, sky-high stilettos is on to another gap in the glyph lexicon: the lack of a swimsuit option for users "who may not feel that the Barbie-wardrobe two-piece really communicates who they are or what they want to say." In a new piece for The New York Times, Vanessa Friedman reports from the keyboard battlefield, where two women are fighting for the addition of a sporty one-piece emoji. {The New York Times

Luxury homewares are having a moment
Major players in the luxury space are branching out from handbags and trousers and dipping their toes into the $649 billion homeware market. Sites like MatchesFashion and Moda Operandi, together with brands like Gucci and Loewe, are adding permanent home décor sections, as well as their own lines of plush blankets and punchy ceramic plates, hoping to get more money from their customers who already splurge on designer tees. {Business of Fashion

"The people who make our clothes need to realize that waste is a design flaw, one that those with the least money people pay for." {i-D
