Yesterday kicked off Climate Week NYC. To honor that, L’Oreal announced a major EUR 15 Million Climate Emergency Fund to help support our most vulnerable communities. Beiersdorf also announced plans to improve recycling efforts and lower emissions. Meanwhile, Babor, a category leader in sustainable product development, rolled out the first three products of its ambitious 2024 rebrand and “Green Agenda.”

In fashion news, Edward Enninful today announced that Chioma Nnadi will become Head of Editorial Content at British Vogue. And yesterday was a dark day for Olivier Roustieng, who alerted the fashion community over Instagram that clothes intended for his Balmain Paris Fashion Week show had gone missing after the truck transporting the collection was stolen. “This morning, I woke up with a smile, starting the fittings for my next show at 9 am, and this is what happened…50 Balmain pieces stolen,” he posted yesterday on his personal Instagram feed, olivier_rousteing. “Our delivery was hijacked. The camion got stolen. Thank god, the driver is safe.”

The note, typed on a black back ground, was met with 5,041 messages of mostly love and positive energy but as of press time, the camion was still at large. In other fashion news, several high brow guests at the J.W. Anderson show were called out by Eva Chen on her new Style Not Com Instagram handle for exiting their seats prematurely—while the models were still walking during the finale. You can watch the J. W. Anderson finale footage at the Q R code below.
