The series in which we hook you up with the feeds you need.

Somewhere in the unfortunate march of patriarchy through time, “interior decorating” became coded to connote femininity–and while that aspect is not to be overlooked, New York City design group TRNK will be having none of that old-style binary thinking, thank you.

Check out the hijinks that Ivan, a native Italian, partook of at Milan Fashion Week in the video below—all at the wise request of V Magazine. (And, if you missed it, catch up on our own Fashion Week coverage: for men and women.)

4. On the subject of V Magazine: Seen this video teaser of their Kate Moss x Rihanna article yet? Now you have. Happy Friday.
