Taylor Swift covers British Vogue's January issue
Marking the start of a new decade, Taylor Swift covers British Vogue for the magazine's January 2020 issue.

Shawn Stussy collabs with Dior on Pre-Fall men's collection
Shawn Stussy, founder of Stüssy, may have left the brand in 1996, but it became one of the most recognizable clothing brands for its unique, handwritten logo created by Stussy himself. Kim Jones, the designer behind Dior, brought Stussy on board to create embellished lettering for the upcoming Pre-Fall men's collection, set to debut at Art Basel in Miami. The streetwear legend (who, along with Jones, hates the term "streetwear") says he was attracted to the collaboration thanks to Dior's commitment to applying couture techniques to his work. {WWD}
