This year's Icons portfolio is devoted to 21 young people – age 30 or younger – including actors, artists, musicians, models, athletes, writers and activists. In a statement, the magazine says about this group, "to them, age represents much more than a number: It's an opportunity, where the goal isn't to become an icon but to redefine what it means to be one." Other icons featured in the portfolio include Emma Chamberlain, Ella Emhoff, Indya Moore and Ziwe. {Harper's Bazaar}

Remembering LaTisha Chong
Renowned hair stylist LaTisha Chong, most recently known for her work on the September 2022 Vogue cover starring Serena Williams, passed away on July 19 after a battle with cancer. She was 32 years old. Chong was born in Trinidad and Tobago, and moved to the United States at age six with her family. She served in the Air Force before becoming a professional hair stylist. Ian Isiah, musician, artist and family friend of the Chongs said, "She really had a gift, like she could create a whole map in a short head. Her whole family does hair [...] Some people are gifted and some people are talented but LaTisha was both. She literally just reigned over both and we miss her." {Vogue}

Pulling from their stock of severely damaged luxury pieces, the team behind ReCollection repurposed what was ripped and destroyed to create new, one-of-a-kind ready-to-wear and accessories. The collection consists of 90 genderfluid pieces including transitional outwear, knitwear, tops, dresses, skirts, pants and accessories, all produced in NYC.
