Turning the red carpet on its head . . .

Emma Watson is making a serious statement for her promotional tour for her upcoming film, Regression. We’re not referring to the actress’s impeccable sense of dress, but rather the social activism that is shaping her choices this circuit: For each red carpet turn she makes, Watson will wear a unique look from various fashion designers who create with sustainability in mind. She made the announcement via Instagram, voicing her support for brands “that are considering local craft and production, artisan skills, the environment, sustainability, and the longevity of fashion.” [British Vogue]

The rise of agender fashion . . .

Agender fashion is the latest subject to be addressed in the conversation on fashion and sexuality. In a recent panel hosted by Refinery29 and moderated by writer Katherine Bernard, industry voices Jenny Shimizu, Grace Dunham, Kristiina Wilson, Anita Dolce Vita, and Alok Vaid-Menon discussed trans representation in fashion and the ongoing reconciliation of social activism and capitalism.

Silk scarves are a worthy investment, after all . . .

Despite China’s slowing economy, French heritage brand Hermès has reported a 20 percent rise in operating income for the first half of 2015. The luxury house described the growth as “remarkable,” despite the “difficult context” in the nearby markets of Hong Kong and Macau. [The Guardian]

All-black everything . . .

In a study conducted by a U.K. retailer, it was confirmed that wearing black has a direct correlation with appearing more attractive, intelligent, and confident. The study polled more than 1,000 people to see which colors were most commonly associated with certain qualities. Coming in second on a scale of confidence was red (which we knew already from Legally Blonde), and somewhat predictably so, pink was least associated with intelligence. We think Elle Woods would beg to differ. [Complex]

Twin Peaks IRL . . .

A pop-up diner in the U.K. has been created to immerse you in the fictitious town of Double Pineview, for a Twin Peaks–inspired—but completely unaffiliated—“interactive dining experience.” Hard-core fans of the show better book a flight over the pond stat: The curious destination is open until October 17.
