These are the tales making headlines in style on Monday.
Demna Gvasalia modifications up the style calendar as soon as once more with new Vetements presentation

A make-up artist is launching a line of cosmetics specifically designed to serve the transgender group
Jessica Blackler, a 21-year-old U.Ok.-based make-up artist, is launching a unisex cosmetics line aimed at serving the transgender group. Her model, dubbed “Jecca,” formally drops Dec. 18 and as of now, boasts concealer palettes specifically designed to cowl beard stubble.
The Limited returns with expanded sizing
Before breaking off as its own successful plus-size retailer, Eloquii was under The Limited’s wing — as was Limited Too, but who could forget that sparkly mecca from the early aughts? Either way, the company has had a rough time since, and it closed all of its stores across the U.S. in January. Then, in February, private equity firm Sycamore Partners scooped up what was left of The Limited and is now hoping to revive it by selling its office-appropriate offerings in expanding sizes exclusively at the Sycamore Partners-owned department store, Belk, and online.
Inside H&M’s recycling initiative
In 2013, H&M launched a worldwide garment collecting initiative that offers customers a discount for depositing unwanted clothing at any one of its stores. But what actually happens to your discarded goods once you leave the store? The Swedish retailer hands them off to a global recycling company called I:CO, which then takes them to sorting plants around the world. At these plants, a little more than half of the apparel is allocated to secondhand and vintage shops, and what cannot be re-worn is often repurposed to be used as various household cleaning or car products. Only five to 10 percent of the collected clothing is recycled into fibers to make new clothes, and the rest is simply downcyled into things like insulation.
A very small increase in the cost of our T-shirts could prevent poverty among Indian workers
According to research performed by a PhD candidate and an associate professor at two Australian universities, adding an additional 15 cents to the price of a T-shirt could push an Indian worker above the poverty line. This very reasonable and barely noticeable price jack-up would increase wages by up to 225 percent in India, which would supply these vulnerable cotton farmers with a living wage — one that could ensure that their basic needs, such as food and shelter, are met.
