August 29 Justin Bieber Purpose Tour Forever 21 Collaboration
What?
If you love the utilitarian coolness of Vetements but find it slightly out of your price range then you'll love this next collaboration... Pop idol and recently Instagram-less Justin Bieber has teamed up with Forever 21 and Bravado for an 8-piece capsule collection. Forever 21 x Purpose Tour feels part rock 'n' roll, part 90's (just like Vetements) and includes a selection of tees, hoodies, bombers and sweats, many of which are cheekily emblazoned with "Justin Forever". The price range is distinctly affordable, unlike the singer's concert tickets, ranging from $17.90 to $34.90.

Did-You-Know
Even if you are not a Justin Bieber fan, this dramatic reading of Sorry featuring Jon Hamm, John Legend, Chelsea Handler, Gabrielle Union, Zosia Mamet, Armie Hammer, Maya Rudolph, Nick Jonas, Octavia Spencer, Kate Beckinsale, Ellen Page, Chloë Sevigny, Bryce Dallas Howard, and others is the BEST THING you'll see this week. It might even change your life. 😜

Did-You-Know
The UK drinks approximately 62 billion cups of tea per year... that's 165 million cups per day. Tea breaks have been around for close to 200 years and have become an important work ritual in their own right. In fact, in a recent study 80% of staff claimed that they find out more about what's going on at work over a cup of tea than in any other way.
