Kate Moss is the new face of Zara’s latest collection, and Dior demands compensation from Valentino (then retracts). Stay up to date with the latest international fashion news stories of the week.
Dior Demands Compensation from Valentino, Retracts Demands
Dior demanded compensation from Valentino in the wake of the latter’s Couture Show in Rome before subsequently retracting the demand. The event took place on the Spanish Steps, drawing a crowd of celebrities, influencers, and fashion students alike. According to a report, Valentino acquired all necessary permits for the show. The label also sent a letter to Dior’s Italiana boutique, instructing them about the upcoming show. In this letter, Valentino ‘guaranteed regular foot traffic to the stores.’
But this is not what occurred, according to Dior. In the notice, the show caused disruption to the boutique, with customers being ‘refused access and blocked at the barrier.’ Dior then demanded compensation of €100,000 within 15 days for lost sales. However, this demand has since been retracted. Moreover, spectators of the Valentino show and fashion enthusiasts questioned the motive behind the demand from Dior. According to the new letter from Dior, the compensation demand was dropped “in light of the friendly relationship between the two Maisons.”
Dua Lipa is Back with Second Puma Collaboration
Dua Lipa is releasing a second collaboration with Puma. The collection pays homage to the rave culture of the ’90s and features 30 throwback pieces in neon and jewel tones. This collaboration, dubbed Flutur, includes a tracksuit, a bralette, shorts, skirts, and dresses. All items are made to mix and match. “You can style the pieces however you want—you can cut them up, and you can create different, exciting ways of wearing them,” said Dua Lipa to Vogue. “I love pairing the tracksuit or trainers with more high-fashion accessories or even heels for an elevated look.”
“I love the imagery from the rave culture days of the ’90s and 2000s,” she said. “You can feel the energy in them, and the fashion was always so fun. These time periods inspire everything from my music to the way I dress today, so it felt only natural to incorporate some of those color schemes and silhouettes into this collection.” The collection is available to purchase online and in-store.
