Is the $185 Prada ‘paperclip’ fashion’s latest mundane must-have? – The Guardian

Monday, June 26, 2017

Until you whack a designer logo on it, at which point it becomes the opposite: a talking point, a must-have, and (in this instance) the only Prada item that you could conceivably afford. That, we’ll hazard, is the thinking behind its oversized silver paperclip, a snip at $185 (£145), and the latest in a litany of designer accessories inspired by…

After 242 Years in Business, Birkenstock Premieres at Paris Fashion … – Vogue.com

Monday, June 26, 2017

The German health shoe brand Birkenstock is a bit like kale. It’s neither glamorous, nor exotic–no asparagus, no quinoa–yet it makes people feel good, almost virtuous.
