What Justin Bieber's "Purpose" Tour Means for the Future of Pop Stardom

Plus, Balenciaga quietly releases a single campaign image, and Calvin Klein not-so-quietly releases a whole campaign.

A mysterious Balenciaga campaign photo appeared on the Internet last week, and commentators have theorized it’s Demna Gvasalia’s long-awaited first campaign.

Bieber, Justin
As the pop star sets off on his Purpose world tour, the New Yorker wonders, Prince, Michael Jackson… Justin Bieber? Young Thug? Will the new guard ever surpass the old? Not if he keeps forgetting his set list.

Derby, Kentucky
The race is over, and the jockeys exchange their stripes for custom suits by tailor Andy Laungani, whose clients include the last Triple Crown winner Victor Espinoza. They’re giving the street set of the Derby a run for its money.

Dior, Christian
Still struggling to replace Raf Simons, who’s moved on to bigger, Calvin Klein things.

This year’s edition of the international music competition must be seen to be believed.

Klein, Calvin
Unlike Balenciaga’s quiet debut, released a very legit, very typical-Calvin (read: very sexual) campaign starring Abbey Lee Kershaw and Kendall Jenner to much fanfare.

Reeves, Keanu
“Sad Keanu” memes just got a whole lot more real: Reeves is now plumbing the depths of his sadness for a poetry collaboration with artist Alexandra Grant.

Subtract the Green and you get the art world’s new (reluctant) favorite meal replacement. Spoiler alert: Tastes like chalk and Cheerio milk.

Styles, Harry
Former One Direction member known for his long tresses; no longer known for his long tresses.
