Victor Glemaud Celebrates Body Positivity With a New Size-Inclusive Collection

When Ashley Graham appeared at the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund awards in 2017, it was nothing short of a bombshell fashion moment. The dress, a dazzling white floor-length knit with cheeky peekaboo cutouts at the shoulder, cemented the model’s reputation as a red carpet force to be reckoned with. “The reaction to that look was just phenomenal,” said Victor Glemaud, then a finalist of the competition who took Graham as his date that night and custom designed the dress. “It made me realize that size inclusivity was something that came so naturally to me.” Having collaborated on a capsule with 11 Honoré, the luxury e-retailer specializing in extended sizing, Glemaud is now taking the idea a step further. Available for preorder on his newly relaunched website comes a new collection offering curve sizing for the first time.

To mark the occasion, Glemaud gathered some of his most beloved

Introducing Banding Together, a New Allure -Curated Collection Produced by Anywear

As we were sharing with you the stories, and mental health struggles, of the frontline medical workers across the country who are fighting COVID-19, Allure wondered how we might help this group in a very practical, and of course beautiful, way. And then fashion startup Anywear came to us with an idea.

After seeing images of the skin irritation frontline workers are experiencing from wearing face masks during long shifts, Anywear consulted with medical professionals about exactly what might minimize their discomfort. They learned that headbands (and medical caps) with buttons to which masks could be affixed would help alleviate chafing and pain around the ears. Countless Zoom calls and several prototypes later, Anywear has launched The Banding Together Project.

Pippi Longstocking is celebrating her 75th birthday this year, but you’d never know it: That ragtag, pigtailed, freckle-faced Swede literally never ages. Nor does the appeal of the strongest girl in the world fade. “Pippi Longstocking was my girl,” Michelle Obama told the New York Times recently of the character created by Astrid Lindgren in 1945. “I loved her strength—not just her physical power, but the idea that she wouldn’t allow her voice to be diminished by anyone.”

At the behest of the Lindgren estate, the Swedish jeweler Maria Nilsdotter is expanding on Pippi’s legacy with a 20-piece collection in eco-silver that playfully builds on Longstocking iconography and messages.
