Kim Kardashion is suing Missguided 
This is not the week to mess with a Kardashian: Kim, who's spent the first part of the week blasting fast fashion retailers on social media, has decided to take legal action against Missguided for using her name and image without permission to advertise their knockoff designs. She filed the case on Wednesday and is seeking damages in excess of $10 million. {TMZ

Interest in Chanel spikes following Karl Lagerfeld's death 
Searches for "Karl Lagerfeld" on Depop increased 1,351 percent following the designer's death on Tuesday. StockX experienced a 25 percent increase in the number of bids on Chanel products on the platform, compared to the same period the previous week. The RealReal has also seen an increased demand for Chanel this week, as has eBay and vintage boutiques like What Goes Around Comes Around and Manhattan vintage. So if you thought vintage Chanel tweeds and quilted leather goods did damage on your wallet before, wait until you see how much a Boy Bag costs in a world without Karl. {WWD

Joss Sackler makes her NYFW debut, while protestors rally against her family

How a knitwear designer is getting Italian fashion to confront its lack of diversity 
The racially insensitive Prada trinket, Gucci's blackface balaclava sweater and Dolce & Gabbana's stereotypical videos on China have prompted Milan-based knitwear designer Edward Buchanan to take a stand against the lack of racial representation and cultural understanding at Italian fashion houses. Buchanan, who is one of the few Black men working in Italian fashion, is addressing the industry's lack of diversity with a collection offered in a wide range of hues that reflect a full spectrum of skin tones. The goal, he told The New York Times, is to be the "Fenty Beauty of knits." {The New York Times

The cat, which is arguably the closest companion he leaves behind, will be more than taken of: Lagerfeld has revealed in several interviews that she is an heiress to his estate, which is estimated to be valued between £150 million and £350 million. {Dazed
