We borrowed Gucci, YSL bags in 2023

Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.

No, we aren’t talking about weddings! Instead we’re all about designer bags and wearing a new one every day of the week.

We don’t have an endless budget for that, but it no longer matters when you can use a service like Vivrelle, allowing you to borrow designer handbags and accessories like jewelry and watches for a month (or months) at a time, at a set rate far less than their typical price tag.

Timed to New York Fashion Week 2023, we wanted to get our hands on a handbag or two, and headed to the site and then the in-person showroom in NYC to try the service out for ourselves. Warning: the bags you are about to see will make you want to shop ASAP.

Not in New York? No problem, as you don’t need to visit the showroom IRL to borrow a plethora of designer items. The brand ships throughout the US and even provides pre-paid shipping labels, but more on that later.

What is Vivrelle and how does borrowing work?

Vivrelle is frankly a designer-lover’s dream.

In more words, Vivrelle is a members-only service that lets its users borrow designer handbags, jewelry and watches at a discounted rate, charged monthly via a subscription plan. Users can either visit the showroom located in Garment District of New York City or for those not local to NYC, they can also browse

Julia Fox wears nothing but belts at Milan Fashion Week

Julia Fox knows how to cinch a Fashion Week look.

The “Uncut Gems” star, 33, took to the streets of Milan on Wednesday night in yet another daring ensemble, this time wearing a head-to-toe Diesel outfit featuring a bra top and mini skirt crafted entirely out of belts.

Never one to turn away from a DIY look, Fox draped three differently colored belts — including a $232 style with a sparkly logo — over her breasts to form a top of sorts.

She added a wide black belt and another red style featuring a graphic of a smiling mouth with teeth to form a skirt, worn over what appears to be a pair of black underwear.

Fox wore an oversized black leather jacket draped around her barely-there outfit, dragging it along the sidewalk as she posed in her belted look.

She accessorized with a pair of high-heeled boots, adding a small shoulder bag from the brand and wearing her freshly dyed red hair in a straight style.

Her signature “Fox eye” makeup got a fresh update with the addition of pastel green shadow, and she added some bronze highlights over her bleached brows, the same makeup she wore to the Diesel fashion show earlier in the day.

Earlier in the day, she brought her 2-year-old son, Valentino, as her date to the Diesel fashion show, sitting in the front row with tons of other stars — including drag star Alexis Stone, who transformed into Jennifer Coolidge for the occasion.

For the event, Fox sported a bandeau top featuring the label’s logo with low-rise jeans and all-denim accessories. Valentino, meanwhile, looked adorable in his own denim look featuring a vest, jeans and jacket paired with cowboy

So, we are going on tour.” york-fashion-week” data-ylk=”slk:Vogue” class=”link “Vogue

Marni’s Francesco Risso is taking the brand ‘on tour’ starting with New York Fashion Week

This article is part of our Vogue Business Membership package. To enjoy unlimited access to Member-only reporting and insights, our NFT Tracker and TikTok Trend Tracker, weekly Technology and Sustainability Edits and exclusive event invitations, sign up for Membership here.

Marni will show at New York Fashion Week this September, as part of a multi-season odyssey that will see the Milan house at different fashion weeks across the world.

Creative director Francesco Risso today revealed the surprise move is “about getting closer to our audience” in an exclusive interview with Vogue Business. “We have a very international crowd who come to us in Milan, and we can’t complain about that at all. But still there are a lot of people — people I am very focused on, Marni lovers who are deeply engaged with what we do — who miss out. So, we are going on tour.”

Its first stop will see Risso’s Spring Summer 2023 collection revealed at 9pm on 10 September, at a New York location — the designer declined to divulge the exact whereabouts for now: “We want to keep the surprise for a while longer.” Risso added that the show would be accompanied by a series of events and amplifications held in Marni’s three boutiques across the city. He said: “Friends of the house who might not necessarily be involved in the show, artists, will inhabit the spaces to represent the Italian-ness. I think it’s going to be very interesting to be there.”

Following news of Fendi’s one-off show to take place the previous day, Marni’s announcement strengthens what will be a refreshingly Italian-accented edition of the US’s leading fashion showcase. In an emailed comment, the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s CEO Steven Kolb said the organisation “is delighted to welcome Marni to New

‘The hard work is never over’

Three years before “manifesting” became the new wellness craze in late 2020, Aaron Rose Philip tweeted that when she was finally signed to a modeling agency, it was going to be “OVER for y’all.” And she was right.

Philip, a transgender Antiguan American model who was born with cerebral palsy, has published a book, been profiled by the New York Times and Vogue, was interviewed by her idol Naomi Campbell, starred in multiple high-profile fashion editorials, served as grand marshal for New York City’s 2021 Pride Parade and performed in a Miley Cyrus music video — all before she turned 21.

So, yes, it was over for all of us the second she decided to pursue the fashion industry when she was a junior in high school.

“I am someone who has lived 50 lives in 21 years,” she told In The Know. “I for sure use fashion as an outlet for my own personal happiness and self-expression.”

Philip is now managed by Community New York and Milk Management London and has modeled for almost five years now. But as she continues adding to her already impressive résumé, she is still waiting to see disability be made an equal part of the conversation surrounding the need for more diversity within fashion and beauty.

“I’ve had so many opportunities [in which] the client may revert on their decision to cast me or the job ‘just doesn’t work out’ in general due to them not being able to accommodate my disability,” Philip explained.

Physical impairment is the most common form of disability in the U.S. — affecting one out of every seven adults. Fashion is a profit-driven industry that still fails to create adaptive clothing for a significant portion of the population. In a commercial

New York Fashion Week
9 – 14 September 2022

While recent seasons have seen New York Fashion Week run with a largely depleted schedule, this September sees something of a revival for fashion month’s American stopover – halting any talk of its demise. Notably, the week has attracted two blockbuster international guests, Francesco Risso’s Marni – showing in the city as part of a ‘world tour’ for the Italian label – and Fendi, who will hold a celebration of its seminal ‘Baguette’ handbag (the house, currently helmed by womenswear creative director Kim Jones, will also continue to show its S/S 2023 collection in Milan). Elsewhere, a new vanguard of home-grown American talent brings fresh creative energy to the city, among them Peter Do (nominated for both the Woolmark and ANDAM Prize this year), Area, Puppets & Puppets, Judy Turner and Luar, while New York City stalwarts Tom Ford, Michael Kors, Coach, Gabriela Hearst, Tory Burch and Proenza Schouler will all make their return to the runway, the latter opening the week on the first Friday.
