Hedi Slimane revealed his first handbag for Celine 
We won’t see a single stitch of clothing from Hedi Slimane‘s first Celine collection until it comes down the runway on Sept. 28. However, the designer has revealed his debut Celine creation, which is a ’60s-inspired top-handle handbag named the “16.” Available in three sizes and in a range of colors, the bag is expected to go on sale Nov. 12. Slimane will also launch two more handbags this fall. {WWD

Nike hits an all-time high thanks to Colin Kaepernick ad
In spite of boycotts, Nike‘s new Colin Kaepernick campaign has helped the company’s shares hit an all-time high, according to Bloomberg. And its sales are up as well: Edison Trends scanned receipts from more than 200 online retailers and found that the first full day after Kaepernick’s ad went viral, Nike purchases were 22 percent higher than the same day in 2017. On Wednesday they were 42 percent higher, and they remained above 2017 levels through the end of the week. {Bloomberg
