Hailey Bieber on leaving “toxic” Twitter
Hailey Bieber has opened up about her decision to delete her Twitter account. In a video interview with psychologist Jessica Clemons, the supermodel said it felt like a “very toxic environment” which ultimately led to her decision to leave the platform last summer. “The thought of even opening the app gives me such bad anxiety that I feel like I’m going to throw up,” she said. “People can say whatever they want on the internet, you know, and then this stuff goes viral because people believe anything that they see on social media.” The 24-year-old added that her therapist helps her stay grounded while she deals with so much online scrutiny in her life and related to her marriage to Justin Bieber. (She has almost 34 million followers on Instagram too.) You can watch the entire video on her YouTube channel below.

Birkenstock collaborate with Toogood on sandals, clothes…and a bed!
Birkenstock and Toogood want to see you through from morning ’til night–and in between too. Fusing their combined function-first beliefs, their co-designed collaboration is a marriage of style and substance. First up, they reimagined the iconic footwear, by creating three uber on-trend ‘puffy’ slide-like shoes for men and women—the Forager, the Mudlark and the Beachcomber. To accompany the footwear there is a capsule collection of workwear and accessories in a neutral palette of black, white, grey (plus a bonus jolt of yellow!).

Resale platform The RealReal is kicking off Earth Month with the launch of ReCollection 01; an upcycled collection of 50 pieces which honor the best of American craftsmanship. The pieces were created in partnership with eight luxury brands—A-COLD-WALL, Balenciaga, Dries Van Noten, Jacquemus, Simone Rocha, Stella McCartney, Ulla Johnson, and Zero + Maria Cornejo—who donated them to the project so that they could be transformed into new looks by L.A.-based circular fashion company, Atelier & Repairs.

ReCollection 01 will be available for sale exclusively on The RealReal’s website and in its Soho store starting today.
Bronx hat designer alleges Givenchy copied his design

According to Page Six, the Bronx-native’s team reached out when they saw Williams share a leather bucket hat with a zipper detail that looked identical to Perez’ own HardWear Style headgear.
