This Film Explains How Sneaker Collecting Became a Multi-Billion-Dollar Business

It should surprise exactly no one that collecting sneakers is a phenomenon big enough to merit its own feature-length documentary. But the latest film about sneakerheads (entitled, cleverly enough, Sneakerheadz) goes deeper than its predecessors, profiling collectors from all over the world—and examining the fine line between admiring shoes and hoarding them. The film, which premiered at South by Southwest earlier this year, features interviews with shoe designers, fashion editors, musicians, and major collectors from around the world—all of whom help explain the history behind what Forbes reports is a $22 billion industry in the United States alone.

Alexander Wang Said to Be Departing Balenciaga

It was lovely while it lasted, wasn't it? Balenciaga's current creative director, Alexander Wang, will be leaving the French brand after showing his spring/summer 2016 womenswear collection in September, reports WWD. Rumors of the separation started earlier this month when Wang's contract with Kering, the conglomerate that owns Balenciaga (among other high-end fashion labels), came up for renewal. Wang was announced as creative director in November 2012, taking over for designer Nicolas Ghesquière, who is now at competing label Louis Vuitton. Wang, who also maintains his own eponymous label based in New York, added a relaxed, streetwear-inspired sensibility to see more

Everlane Adds Pants to Its Basics Lineup

From its lightweight spring outerwear to the streamlined sweaters, it's no secret that we're grateful for the bounty that online retailer Everlane has provided us over the years. But, alas, our below-the-belt selves felt just a wee bit neglected during all the sartorial excitement. That, however, is about to change, as Everlane has just released its first-ever pair of pants for men and—as to be expected—they're a marvel of utilitarian ingenuity. Called the Slim Pant, the cotton pants took a year to develop and are made in a factory in Dongguan, China, that specializes in manufacturing trousers. Each pair see more

Calvin Harris Shows Off His Six-Pack in New Emporio Armani Ad

Congrats to Taylor Swift's boyfriend, Calvin Harris, who should treat his pop-star girlfriend to dinner after landing a high-profile gig.

Harris' campaign includes photos in which he models ready-to-wear, eyewear, timepieces, and, yup, underwear. see more

American Apparel May Be Running Out of Money

Could it be the end of the road for American Apparel? Maybe. A culmination of factors is leading experts to believe that the brand, which specializes in basic garments favored by young urbanites, is close to bankruptcy, reports the New York Post. The combination of a $15.4M bond payment due in October with bills owed from sexual harassment lawsuits filed against the brand's ousted CEO Dov Charney mean the company is looking at a grim bottom line. "My expectation is that the quarter will be horrible," shareholder Michael Bigger told the Post. Quarterly reports are forthcoming, but the general see more

Jake Gyllenhaal When: July 23 Where: Making an appearance on the Late Show with Seth Meyers in New York.

Henry Cavill Keeps It Simple and Classic in Shades of Blue

Who: Henry Cavill When: July 23 Where: Photo call for The Man From U.N.C.L.E. in London What: Navy sweater and pants from Dunhill. Why: It's summer, and wearing a suit—even if you're an actor shilling for a forthcoming film—seems downright dreadful.

Levi's Just Made It Very Easy to Recycle Your Clothes

As they say, one man's trash is another man's treasure. What's often overlooked is the fact that one man's trash ultimately becomes a burden on the environment, and that goes for the billions (yes, with a "b") of pounds of textile waste that makes it to our planet's landfills each year. But the folks at Levi's are taking the matter to heart by expanding their recycling initiative to include all Levi's mainline and outlet stores in the U.S., reports Quartz. What this means is that you can go to those stores to leave clean, dry clothing and shoes from any see more
