These are the stories making headlines in fashion on Tuesday.

Naomi Osaka designed a capsule for Levi's
Furthering her relationship with the denim giant, Naomi Osaka designed a capsule collection for Levi's, dropping today exclusively on the brand's app. There are four upcycled pieces — a denim kimono ($380), a lace-up short ($150), a crystal fringe short ($250) and a trucker jacket bustier ($180)— inspired by her Japanese heritage and classic Levi's silhouettes. See the lookbook in the gallery, below. {Fashionista Inbox}

The cotton tote crisis
In the New York Times, Grace Cook reports on how cotton tote bags, long used by companies as a "planet-friendly" alternative to plastic in packaging, factor in to the climate crisis and the fashion industry's textile waste. It's "a really good example of unintended consequences of people trying to make positive choices and not understanding the full landscape," according to Make Fashion Circular's Laura Balmond. {New York Times}
