Christian Dior’s Fall 2020 Couture Collection Was Inspired by Surrealism

The 37 looks were unveiled via a short film and a miniature mannequin display on Monday.

On Monday, Christian Dior unveiled its Fall 2020 haute couture collection by Maria Grazia Chiuri. But instead of presenting it on a runway — in front of an audience of customers, celebrities, editors, stylists and influencers — in Paris, the line debuted online, as Couture Week moved to an all-digital format, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

The presentation was two-fold: The 37-look line was first unveiled through a short film directed by Matteo Garrone that premiered on Monday, and then was miniaturized on small mannequins arranged within a trunk fashioned to look like Dior’s Avenue Montaigne headquarters, that will then travel across the globe, according to WWD

This alternative format, however, is only temporary for the fashion house. Dior has been one of a handful of luxury brands to publicly announce efforts

Saturday 4 July marked the biggest easing of lockdown measures so far, with pubs, restaurants, hairdressers, museums, art galleries, cinemas, campsites and hotels opening their doors for the first time since 23 March.

The 2m social distancing rule has also been relaxed from the same date and instead, a “1m-plus” distance is recommended along with people sitting side by side rather than face to face and wearing face coverings.

Businesses are also encouraged to avoid face to face seating, reduce the number of people in enclosed spaces, provide hand sanitiser, change shift patterns and implement the use of face coverings.

For gyms, customers and business owners alike have had a long wait to find out when doors will reopen and indoor workouts can resume. Since they have closed, there has been little information on when they

Remote Learning to Gain From Spike in Coronavirus Cases: 4 Picks

Businesses and schools have finally started reopening in the United States but not everyone is inclined toward physically attending them given the surge in new coronavirus cases. After registering a record 50,000+ coronavirus cases on Thursday, the United States recorded another around 40,000 new cases on Sunday.

This definitely is reason enough for people to once again stay indoors. Although most Americans expect all schools to reopen in the fall, there are chances that teachers and students may not be there. This made schools shift to online education to help students complete their semester this year and with growing fears it is likely that most will prefer learning from remote locations.

Coronavirus Fears Growing

Although states have started reopening, fears too have come back haunting after a surge in fresh coronavirus cases. The United States recorded 39,379 new coronavirus cases on Sunday and many states are contemplating putting a brake

Tesla Website Crashes As Musk Puts ‘Short Shorts’ On Sale

Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) CEO Elon Musk announced Sunday that the automaker was selling a pair of red “short shorts” on its online store, which led to the item being sold off in minutes and the company’s retail website crashing.

What Happened

Musk took to Twitter to announce the sale of the short shorts.

The Tesla chief executive said the limited edition shorts were on sale for “only $69.420,” a thinly veiled reference to the $420 price point at which Musk had wanted to take the automaker private in 2018.

Minutes after the shorts went on sale, they were all sold out, and the Tesla online store became inaccessible. 

The shorts’ product description mocks the short-sellers of Tesla stock. It reads, “Celebrate summer with Tesla Short Shorts. Run like the wind or entertain like Liberace with our red

Elon Musk mocks Tesla short-sellers with sale of $69.420 satin shorts

Tesla
Tesla

Billionaire Elon Musk has started selling Tesla-branded “short shorts” in a stab at sceptical short-sellers who bet against the electric car company.

The sale of the satin shorts comes after the Tesla boss joked online that the car company was planning to “make fabulous short shorts in radiant red satin with gold trim”.

The joke by the 49-year-old is aimed at short sellers, investors who borrow shares, to sell and then rebuy them at a lower price to pocket the difference.

“Limited edition short shorts now available,” CEO Elon Musk tweeted.

The shorts, which are emblazoned with Tesla’s logo and the phrase “S3XY”, are on sale for $69.420 on Tesla’s website. The deliberate typo is a nod to Elon Musk’s previous claims he would take the car company private at a valuation of $420, itself a further nod to cannabis smoking. 

Tesla’s online store briefly went offline when the
