Westfield sues L.A. County over indoor shopping restrictions
By

Indoor shopping centers opened Wednesday as Los Angeles County officials eased pandemic-related restrictions on businesses, but one of the biggest mall operators in the region is suing to stop the county from shutting down centers again.

The owners of Westfield-branded malls, Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield, filed a proposed class action lawsuit against the county in late September that called for the county to lift prohibitions it called “unlawful and unjustifiable” in part because they are targeted at indoor centers, which were then mostly closed.

Although the county gave the green light to indoor mall stores operating with limits on the number of customers who can be inside, Westfield is suing in federal court to stop officials from repeatedly opening and closing stores to blunt the impact of the pandemic.

Gov. Gavin Newsom has likened such openings and closings of businesses to a dimmer switch that the state can raise or lower in relation

By

Evelyn Mora founded Helsinki Fashion Week in 2018 with the goal of disrupting an industry that she deemed woefully out of touch and rather boring.

The 28-year-old Helsinki native initially focused the show on sustainability by showcasing brands that could prove their green bonafides and hosting events in venues build with recycled materials.

And then when Covid-19 hit, she didn’t just broadcast the show online like other industry events, but instead took it into 3D. Models had their bodies scanned by computers to create avatars, and then designers, including Patrick McDowell and Tess van Zalinge, created digital clothes for them to wear down a virtual catwalk. Attendees, also using 3D avatars, visited shows and interacted in a so-called Digital Village. Bloomberg recently spoke with Mora about fashion and

Every so often, you come across a fashion item that fills you with joy simply because it exists. The feeling isn’t “I must own that” – it’s more like “I’m so happy someone decided to make this crazy thing.” That’s how I feel about this witty twist on the familiar puffer coat by Irish-born designer Jonathan Anderson for Moncler’s Genius Project.

The Genius Project is a regularly recurring series of collaborations with creative people across the fashion world. Each designer riffs on the ubiquitous Moncler puffer coat in their own way. For his take, Anderson took some of his most iconic designs from the JW Anderson archive — like the Riviera hat and ruffled shorts — and literally inflated them, reinterpreting them in duvet to create new shapes. Everything is genderless and extremely playful.
