Above the Fold

The week in fashion news

We know who’s getting coal in their stockings.

• Ruh-roh. Bandits jacked the names, numbers, and data of 40 million credit and debit cards from Target sometime between Black Friday and December 15. But seriously, go call your bank and monitor your credit. (USA Today)

• Virgil Abloh, one of Kanye West’s creative conspirators, debuted a new graphic-focused label, dubbed Off-White. Streetwear fanatics are going bonkers, and the high-fashion set (buyers at Colette and The Webster, Riccardo Tisci) seem firmly in his corner as well. Abloh cites Montauk, Martha Stewart, and Nantucket as inspirations, thus making us soul mates. We wish him luck. (Style)

• Sparkle- and skin-friendly design duo The Blonds is set to costume Miley Cyrus for her Bangerz tour. You may recall the nipply, crystal-encrusted bustier the designers created for Beyoncé’s last tour. This is guaranteed to get weird. (StyleCaster)

• Actress Rosamund Pike, a.k.a. Jane Bennet, hooked up with British retailer L.K. Bennett. The collaboration resulted in a small group of classy, top-handle bags that we really dig. (WWD)

• Skinny jeans have changed the way America makes money — literally. Crane, the manufacturer of the paper/cotton blend on which dollars are printed, can no longer use denim scraps thanks to the omnipresence of spandex fibers in jeans. We’re all for recycling, but(t) stretchy pants make us look so good. (The Washington Post)

• Rick Owens’s first online shop launched this week. The step team members who wore the clothes during Paris Fashion Week don’t model them in the store (you can see them in the collection lookbook section). This makes us a bit sad, but we’re sure Owens will find a way to keep the party going. (Rick Owens)
