E-commerce takes inspiration from TikTok
For Glossy, Liz Flora explores how e-commerce companies are taking on the TikTok-style feed. In December 2022, Amazon implemented a short-form video content feature in its mobile Amazon Shopping App. E-commerce startups, such as Trendio, are also using video to reach consumers. "Today, customers tell you they're not understanding the difference between products just by reading text. They need to see it, so I think video will take over," said Alex Perez-Tenessa, founder of Trendio. {Glossy}

Alexa Chung looks back at Indie Sleaze
Fashion has already reached the return of Indie Sleaze, and Alexa Chung — an icon of the era — has taken it upon herself to write about the fashion era defined by heavy club culture, unkempt hair and skinny jeans. "While it may have stood for nothing, the fashion might be worth revisiting for its haphazard charm. What emerges from the sequins and skinny scarves of a very recently bygone era — particularly when juxtaposed with the current appetite for clean-girl trends and the sort of homogenized fashion only an algorithm could impose — is how vastly different everyone looked from each other," Chung wrote. {Financial Times}

Juicy Couture launches collab with Aries

Pieces in the collection include a reimagined take on Juicy Couture's signature velour suit and three unisex graphic tees. {Fashionista inbox}
