Air Mail to launch style vertical
The digital weekly Air Mail, which is edited by Graydon Carter and Alessandra Stanley, is launching a style vertical that will be edited by Jessica Diehl, Vanity Fair‘s former creative director. The style vertical is set to launch in the first half of 2024 and will be “more about taste, curation and commerce,” Diehl said in a statement. Carter told WWD that this new vertical will further Air Mail’s revenue strategy around commerce as it will be closely associated with Air Supply, Air Mail’s digital storefront. “Air Mail readers already know the best way to tie a trench coat, or where to buy the best pair of vintage jeans in London,” Diehl said in a statement. “They need curation, discovery, and access to match their taste level and sophistication, which is what they come to Air Mail and Air Supply for in the first place.” {WWD/paywalled} 

Fashion brand Alabama Chanin is becoming a nonprofit
About 20 years ago, Natalie Chanin founded her fashion brand Alabama Chanin after creating hand-embroidered T-shirts that were picked up by Julie Gilhart, then fashion director at Barneys New York. Chanin helped pioneer the idea of slow fashion in the U.S. through local manufacturing and organic materials. Now, Chanin has decided to give Alabama Chanin to her nonprofit, Project Threadways, to preserve this way of working. “Hopefully it secures the brand so that it can continue as long as the organization can,” Chanin told Business of Fashion. “I want our organization to thrive when I’m long gone.” {Business of Fashion/paywalled}
