Fashion News Roundup: August 2021

A new Pinterest feature, Target’s designer collaborations for Fall 2021, and more news from the style trenches in August.

  • Old Navy has launched BODEQUALITY, a new initiative that promises price parity for all clothes, regardless of size. 
  • Pinterest now gives you the option to narrow down your searches for hairstyles, haircuts, and hair colours by your specific hair texture or type. The new feature is designed to make the platform’s hair content more accessible for people of colour. 
  • Here’s a first look at the Costume Institute’s upcoming “In America: a Lexicon of Fashion” exhibition.
  • Serena Williams and her Nike Design Crew debut their first collection.
  • Hiro, the photographer whose experimental images transformed fashion and beauty advertising, has died aged 90.
  • Allbirds is branching out into activewear with pieces made with premium natural fibres, labelled with its carbon footprint and available in sizes XS-XXXL.
  • Ilona Royce Smithkin, of Advanced Style fame, has passed away at the age of 101.
  • Target has just announced its Fall slate of designer collaborations.
  • After the success of their skinny jeans in only two sizes that apparently work for size 23-28 and 29-34 — made from innovative fabric that incorporates organic cotton and recycled poly, also reducing the brand’s carbon footprint —  denim brand Frame is now introducing a flare jean of the same sustainable quality.
  • Workout wear brand Sweaty Betty has been sold to US footwear manufacturer Wolverine Worldwide.
