This Is Why Everyone Is Talking About Peeple
Peeple, the "positivity app" which sounds more like a mean girls' Burn Book will allow users to add humans to a database and rank and review them as if they were a restaurant. That's actually how one of the founders, Julia Cordray, pitched the app noting, “If we have it for restaurants, why [don’t] we have it for people?” MAYBE BECAUSE RESTAURANTS DON'T HAVE REAL FEELINGS?
Once users —who must be 21 and have a Facebook account— enter the phone number and name of the person they wish rate, that person is added to the Peeple database and rated on a five-star scale in one of the three categories: romantic, professional and personal. Positive ratings are automatically published to the platform and negative ratings are queued in an inbox for 48 hours. Once the shade is published to Peeple, it can't be deleted. If you're not a user you can only view positive reviews about yourself.
Idk, about this one guys but should you want to rate your friends, the app hits the iOS store in November. I guess there's no time better than the holidays to scale down your squad. (via: Washington Post)

Rick Owens Dresses Women In Other Women For SS16
Rick Owens' fashion shows are always....something else. There was the fall/winter 2015 menswear show where he sent dicks flopping down the runway, the slightly problematic step dancing show and of course, the Angela Merkel-hating model/protestor. Today, Rick Owens sent models down the runway harnessed to other women. Is this a statement about lady power? Sista-sistahood? 69-ing? According to Owens, via Dazed:
In the Spring men’s collection which shares the same name (Cyclops), that focussed vision was propulsive and aggressive. When applied to women’s, I see that focussed vision being more about nourishment, sisterhood/motherhood and regeneration; women raising women, women becoming women, and women supporting women – a world of women I know little about and can only attempt to amuse in my own small way…Straps can be about restraint but here they are all about support and cradling. Straps here become loving ribbons…The music for the show is Unkle’s arrangement of This Land – the theme from the movie ‘Exodus’ - a song I use here as a reflection on the timelessly female way of protecting way of protecting and nurturing a tribe, sung, live by a vocal powerhouse Eska.
