Ralph Lauren is Stepping Down as CEO

It’s a sad day for Lo-heads everywhere: Ralph Lauren is stepping down as the CEO of his own eponymous label. Stefan Larsson — a former H&M executive and the man largely responsible for the revival of Gap subsidiary Old Navy — is set to take over the reigns as the company looks to improve its earnings. Though quarterly earnings topped analyst estimates, yearly revenue has dipped 5.3% as share prices have been slashed nearly in half. The 75-year-old Lauren intends to stay onboard in roles as executive chairman and chief creative officer with Larsson reporting directly to him.
"When they start designing things I can’t understand, I’ll quit," said Lauren. "But I don’t feel like I’m stepping back now."

Rihanna Pulls A Beyoncé For 100th Cover Of FADER; Gives No Interview [PHOTOS]

Rihanna-Covers-!00-Issue-Of-The-Fader

When you make it to 100 covers, you’ve go to go big. That’s exactly what FADER has done as Rihanna joins Drake as the second cover of the magazine’s 100th issue. The super starlet went full Beyoncé for the magazine’s cover, as she didn’t grant an interview with the publication, only offering to answer five questions via e-mail.

Beyoncé pulled a similar move this year when she covered Vogue, put only offered pictorials with no interview. It’s not uncommon in today’s world of uber-stardom that Rihanna is in, you’ve got to reach a certain level of status to pull that off. What’s different from this, however, is that Rihanna took some of the pictures herself.

Rihanna’s upcoming eighth studio album R8 should be out soon but this story, which you can read here, doesn’t give much updates on it.

"All photos of Rihanna, at this point in her career, have layers of artifice. We wanted to see what would happen if we were able to pull some of that away," said Naomi Zeichner, The FADER’s editor-in-chief. "The FADER’s 100th issue reckons with the changes in music and media since The FADER’s launch: today there are fewer music magazines than ever, which makes The FADER’s job bigger, and means we are more responsible than ever for contextualizing the work of major artists like Drake and Rihanna. At the same time, there are more ways and more places for artists to tell their own stories than ever before, and this is one example of that. These photos, like the entirety of this issue, reflect on the changing relationship between artists and media."

Check out the photos from the shoot in the gallery above.

Nike Announces Collaboration with MIT Climate CoLab

Following it’s pledge to use 100% renewable energy by 2025, Nike has now announced it’s partnership with MIT’s (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Climate CoLab division to bring innovation in materials to the forefront of the climate conversation.
“For more than a decade, we’ve worked hard to understand where our greatest impacts lie. We know materials make up about 60 percent of the environmental impact in a pair of Nike shoes,” said Hannah Jones, chief sustainability officer. “This knowledge has focused us on the need to bring new low-impact performance materials to scale through innovative solutions.”
According to research by MIT’s Materials System Laboratory, "the global apparel industry is expected to produce more than 400 billion square meters of fabric per year – representing nearly enough material to cover the state of California – and is estimated to consume nearly 1 billion kWh (kilowatt hour) of electricity every year."
To counter this trend, Nike and MIT have launched the MIT Climate CoLab Materials Challenge, seeking revolutionary new ideas for how to engage industries, designers and consumers in valuing, demanding and adopting low-impact fabrics and textiles. Nike has also created the MAKING App, a predictive app that helps designers and product creators make better decisions about their material choices, showing the climate-related impact of choices alongside chemistry, waste and water.
