Fashion buzz: Billie Eilish’s clothing line cancelled, Off-White launches a home collection and more
Billie Eilish's clothing line is cancelled
Just days after the announcement of Billie Eilish's partnership with label Siberia Hills made the headlines, it's been revealed that the clothing line is cancelled. This move comes after a Twitter user pointed out that the artwork featured in the capsule collection had been copied from an anime drawing by a Japanese artist. The brand subsequently posted an apology on Instagram admitting to stealing the designs, and promised full refund to all customers. The 17-year-old singer has now removed the collection from her merchandise site.

Chilam Cheung made an appearance in Malaysia
Entitled The Expressions of Love, TSL Jewellery recently held an exhibition at the Pavilion KL Centre Court to showcase its stunning jewels that are worth over HKD$150 million (approximately RM80 million). To give the week-long event that extra star power, the brand invited Hong Kong actor Chilam Cheung to grace the launch. When it comes to love, the star said: "Love is something that we cherish and commit ourselves to as being in an everlasting relationship is to learn how to love and support each other through thick and thin. Every one of us has our unique way of expressing love and romance; for me, it's through music and giving something precious to someone I treasure."

These are the looks that can be emulated in our tropical weather anytime, any day.

The third TommyxLewis line is now in stores! Co-designed by Formula One World Champion and global brand ambassador Lewis Hamilton, the looks—inspired by modern city living—strike the perfect balance between the racing driver's street-cool style and Tommy Hilfiger's classic American DNA. While the collection is made up of menswear staples including denim jacket, hoodies, and tracksuits, what's different this time, are the sustainable elements that were added to the collection, in the form of the Re:Down and organic cotton material.
