How NBA tunnel walks became the new fashion runway 
Sports and fashion are becoming increasingly intertwined, especially as players like LeBron James have transformed game-day arrivals — known as “tunnel walks” — into red carpet-like moments, using their off-court style to express their individuality. This has created a demand for specialized stylists who can give basketball players a unique look and a marketing opportunity for brands. {Business of Fashion/paywalled}

What dupe culture means for luxury brands
It’s no secret that Gen Z is obsessed with dupes: Searches for them on TikTok have soared in the past two years, with the hashtag #dupe amassing 3.5 billion views. While these more price-sensitive products are gaining favor among younger demographics, they also have drawbacks. For one, most dupes are created by fast-fashion brands that don’t consider longevity. There’s also the issue of authenticity, with many dupes coming close to being counterfeit and infringing upon intellectual property. Vogue Business investigates the implications dupe culture has for luxury brands. {Vogue Business/paywalled}
