Honestly, Satanism Sounds Pretty Great

Photo taken in Berlin, Germany This past weekend, we witnessed a historical Pop Culture Moment courtesy of Lil Nas X’s viral “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” music video. In it, he’s seduced by a serpent in what appears to be the Garden of Eden, then pole dances elegantly into the depths of Hell, where he gives Satan (also played by Lil Nas X) a lap dance before snapping his neck and donning the devil’s horns as his own. The video itself is a symbol of the rapper’s relationship with the church as a gay man — they told him he was going to Hell, so he went. And he had a good time doing it. But, as with anything that has to do with Satanism or the LGBTQ+ community, conservative Christian Twitter was up in arms over the symbols and imagery, calling for

As Fashion Tackles Its Diversity Issues, What Role Can Mentoring Play?

LONDON — Last year the fashion industry had to come face-to-face with the lack of diversity that exists, not only on its public-facing runways, but also in offices, design studios and on sets.

The issue moved to the forefront last spring following the killing of George Floyd and the ensuing Black Lives Matter protests. Almost a year later, keeping the issue top of mind and working behind-the-scenes to ensure long-term change remains as urgent as ever.

The route toward such change is long and complex, but a number of practical solutions have come up among those committed to doing the work. Mentoring could be one of them, with more established industry professionals volunteering their time, networks and knowledge to help students or younger members of the industry who come from underrepresented groups.

Carlyle Said to Near Deal for U.K. Online Luxury Retailer End

Carlyle Group Inc. is nearing a deal to invest in U.K. online fashion retailer End Clothing, people with knowledge of the matter said.

The private equity firm beat out rival bidders for a stake in the Newcastle-based company, the people said, asking not to be identified because the information is private.

End was founded more than 15 years ago by entrepreneurs Christiaan Ashworth and John Parker. It sells a variety of men’s modern fashion and has relationships with more than 400 luxury brands and designers including Givenchy, Alexander McQueen, Kenzo and Valentino, according to its website.

The company runs physical stores in London’s Soho shopping and entertainment district as well as Newcastle and Glasgow. Its profit after tax increased 20% in the year through March 2020 to reach 26 million pounds ($36 million), according to U.K. corporate filings. Revenue for the period rose 27% to 170.5 million pounds.

The Kimbino is the fashion researcher hosting tutorials on OnlyFans

25-year-old fashion researcher Kim Russell, more commonly known as @thekimbino on Instagram and Twitter, didn’t start her accounts with the intention of amassing a combined following of almost 70,000. But, thanks to a tongue-in-cheek tone of voice, combined with posts that share her in-depth digital investigations into fashion history, and Tweets that express candid opinions on contemporary fashion, she did – and that number just keeps on growing. Her Instagram account even caught the attention of Kim Kardashian, when she slid into the star’s DMs two years ago, and after much back and forth conversation, they eventually met up and are now collaborating on some top-secret special projects together. “We first met in Los Angeles on a work trip and she was really sweet,” says Kim. “She’s always been really kind to me and I never take our connection for granted. We love bonding over fashion and art
