2. Peter Dundas’ exit from Roberto Cavalli was just the first shake-up for the house.

“Just hours after the news that creative director Peter Dundas is leaving Roberto Cavalli after only 19 months at the brand, chief executive officer Gian Giacomo Ferraris has announced a radical and comprehensive reorganisation of the entire company.”

3. The internet is (rightfully) outraged by a Kim Kardashian West robbery-inspired costume.

“The Internet is not happy with Costumeish, a company currently selling a Halloween costume that looks a lot like reality star Kim Kardashian as a robbery victim.”

5. A recent design collaboration has created the world’s most fascinating speaker.

“Richard Clarkson Studio and Crealev have collaborated to create a levitating storm cloud that doubles as a bluetooth speaker. The cumulus-shaped puff autonomously hovers above a reflective oval base, which is embedded with magnetic components that allow the cloud to float 1-2 inches from its surface. While the base itself must remain plugged in, a rechargeable lithium ion battery powers the cloud and enables a completely wireless and unobstructed levitation while in use.”
