Kendall Jenner Covers Vogue's September 2016 Issue

After covering a special edition of Vogue's April 2016 issue, which only shipped to New York and Los Angeles subscribers and completely focused on Jenner, the model seemed destined to land a non-subscriber cover at some point this year. On the September issue cover, shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Jenner rocks an embroidered Gucci jacket with bow detail and leather fringe. In an accompanying interview in the magazine, Jenner discusses everything from how modeling can be lonely and how she once thought her dad was cheating on Kris. "I don't think that people understand how lonely it can be. All you're doing is traveling the world by yourself to do a job and then go back to your hotel by yourself.

Jenner also opened up about being different from her Kardashian sisters — Kim, Kourtney and Khloe — and wanting to escape the spotlight from time to time.

Now, eight months later, we're finally getting a look at the offering. "I never thought I would be asked to design a capsule collection, so it still feels like a dream that Tommy approached me to collaborate. His company is one that I genuinely love and have been a fan of for my entire life, and Tommy is the easiest, most fun person to work with," Hadid said in a statement when the collaboration was first announced. "I have always looked up to his brand, campaigns and design style. I think our collection celebrates the iconic Tommy lifestyle and mixes a bit of everything: there are styles that are really hippie-chic, styles that are sporty streetwear and styles that are tomboy but girly.

"I've known Gigi and her family for years, and it has been amazing to watch her grow into one of the world's top models and most-followed fashion influencers. Wearable sculptures? Dubai-based designer combining art, fashion. 10 August 2016How often do you get to wear a piece of art?

Wearable sculptures? Dubai-based designer combining art, fashion

Many would consider luxury haute couture to be a form of art and Dubai-based Arab/American designer Zaid Farouki is pushing the limits of this and attempting to reinvent the meaning of fashion with his wearable art pieces. Farouki took a leap of faith two years ago by packing up his entire life in the world's fashion capital, Milan, and exchanging it for Dubai's newly opened D3 Design District. "At the end of the day, I'm Arab. If Dubai's going to be the creative part in the whole region, then why not be a part of it? Being an Arab/American in Italy has no significance.

It wasn't until he attended fashion school in Italy that Farouki realised that he could channel his love of art into the fashion world. Global inspiration Farouki finds inspiration and sources his materials from his travels abroad. The History of Art and Fashion's Long-standing Relationship. Fashion is in love with art like never before.

The History of Art and Fashion's Long-standing Relationship

From clothing design to catwalk show art direction, major labels to boutique houses, the word of fashion is falling over itself to involve important names from a diverse range of the visual arts. It’s hardy surprising — after all what is fashion if not wearable art — and these collaborations between the disciplines are certainly mutually beneficial. Fashion, often unfairly judged as one of the more frivolous applied arts, gains serious cachet by association, while the artist reaches a wider, more populist audience. Just as art and fashion so regularly collide, we bashed our heads together with online fashion destination Lyst (whose brilliant editorial arm The Long Lyst has quickly become one of the web’s go-to spots for well-considered fashion news; ideas; stories; opinion), digging up the history of this long-standing relationship.
