Paper Crown Spring 2013

Looks from Lauren Conrad's spring 2013 Paper Crown collection.

Lauren Conrad has been busy! (What else is new, right?) Last year alone, the ex-Hillsie launched a video craft series, designed an eco-friendly beauty and travel accessories line, released another book, and continued her oh-so-popular LC Lauren Conrad for Kohls collection. But, most recently, LC debuted the spring 2013 lookbook from her personal "passion project" clothing line Paper Crown, and, dang, girl has come a long way! We're loving the fresh and feminine (with a touch of nautical) vibe from all her pieces, which include a peony-print blouse and sky blue shorts; a breezy blue and white striped maxi dress; and a sheer mint blouse and champagne sequin skirt.

THIS. IS. HUGE. Rihanna's been doing a reallyyy good job of keeping her forthcoming River Island collection under wraps so far, but big news, you guys! We just got word this morning that the pop star will reveal it all to the masses during London Fashion Week. Amazing, right?! She'll unveil her capsule during a runway show on February 16, joining fellow LFW designers like Richard Nicoll, JW Anderson, Vivienne Westwood on the catwalk. And while the show itself is invite-only, luckily we have to wait a few more weeks before the clothes hit the stores and online on March 5. RiRi's just as pumped as the rest of us, telling British VOGUE, "I have wanted to design my own collection for a long time and to present my collection for River Island alongside all of the other great design talent at LFW is a real privilege. I can't wait to see the reaction from my fans and the fashion press!" Neither can we, Rihanna...neither can we.

John Mayer Wallets

Hello world! Remember John Mayer? You know, the dude that sang "Your Body Is A Wonderland" but had to call off his career "indefinitely" last March because of a serious throat condition? Yeah, that guy. I know it's a super sadface sitch, but, hey, he's dealing the best way he knows how—by dating Katy Perry (babe alert!) and becoming an accessories designer—the latter of which only I found out about mere hours ago. Apparently, he teamed up with Barrett Alley to create a collection of limited-edition wallets, and from what I can tell so far, he's taking this whole design thing really, really seriously. Like, first off, each wallet is $190. To put that in perspective, you could get four—read that again—four Rebecca Minkoff leather wallets for the price of just one John Mayer concoction. So, what's this bad boy made of? Snakeskin? Diamonds? Solid gold? Nope! It's made of old timey fabric from the late 1800s and Civil War-era buttons. Mmmmm, mothballs.

Well well well, look who we found traipsing into the A.P.C. offices in Paris this morning! Kanye West is spending a little time in the City of Lights, you know, per usual, and in typical Yeezy style, this visit is filled with fashion. We know Mr. West is friends with A.P.C. founder Jean Touitou, so it shouldn't come as such a surprise that he's making a pit stop at his workplace while he's in town. In light of the rumors that Kanye and Jean might be working on a collaboration, though, it's hard not to sit up and pay attention.

Nicki Minaj Adam Levine Clothing Line

Nicki Minaj and Adam Levine are about to become fashion designers!

We can't say we were surprised when we heard that Nicki Minaj and Adam Levine would be launching their own clothing and accessories lines at Kmart and Shop Your Way in 2013. The two musicians-turned-reality-show-judges will "design and develop their collections with Kmart to reflect their strong creative talents, expressive personalities, and distinctive individual styles," according to the press release. I mean, Nicki has been very openly shopping around her potential clothing line since last August, and even back then said, "My biggest goal was to make a line that was going to be affordable to my fans and also rich enough in quality that they'll feel like they're wearing exactly what I'm wearing." And for Adam, well, remember he launched a clothing collection (called 222) back in 2010, and since then has been flirting in and out of fashion world by performing at the Victoria's Secret runway show and releasing his first-ever fragrance? Yep, we've been keeping our eyes on y'all!

Listen, we know you're probably STILL eyeballs deep in holiday shopping right now, and your bank account is weeping uncontrollably with every new swipe of your credit card, but just remember: there's a light at the end of the tunnel. The light's called "Spring/Summer 2013," and thanks to our friends at Lil Wayne's breakout streetwear line, Trukfit, we have more than enough ocular helpings of sneak peek neon and prints and skater steez to tide us over until this collection hits stores in January. We got a special tour of Trukfit's New York headquarters courtesy of Trukfit's VP of Merchandising, Frances Wong, Marketing Manager, Mike Morris, and their publicist, Sarah Cunningham, all of whom showed us what's on the horizon for future seasons of Weezy's line. Also, they dropped some serious industry knowledge on how Wanye's ideas become actual, physical clothes, and we nerded out, hanging on every word.

Kanye West, Jean Touitou

Are Kanye West and Jean Touitou working on a collaboration?

Kanye West is one of the best dressed dudes in the game, and while he's already bestowed unto the world TWO full runway collections, we are forever anxiously awaiting Ye's next foray into fashion design. We understand, though, that Yeezy is a busy busy man, and this year has been especially eventful with releasing Cruel Summer, assembling G.O.O.D. Music, wearing leather kilts, and reading the Grace Coddington memoir. BUT thanks to one fateful Twitpic via A.P.C. founder Jean Touitou, there might be a glimmer of hope for us yet!

No Doubt and one of the pieces from the band's new Fred Perry collection.

Between partnerships with the late Amy Winehouse, Brit designer Richard Nicoll, and Olympian Bradley Wiggins, Fred Perry has already seen its fair share of awesomely creative collabs. But the brand's newest collaboration is SO genius, SO organically perfect, that we're kind of wondering what took so long for it to happen in the first place. The British label is teaming up with No Doubt on a mini-collection of polos, sweaters, and jackets influenced by music and street fashion...in other words, two major inspirations that both groups clearly share. The capsule will include classic Fred Perry styles like the slim fitting collared shirts and v-neck knits, but this time expect details like punky tartan plaid and Reggae red, green, and gold piping. Considering they've been fans of the company since the very beginning, consider No Doubt for Fred Perry an extension of the band's own uniform.

Kristin Cavallari Chinese Laundry Shoe Collection

This summer, Kristin Cavallari announced that she was creating a shoe capsule collection with Chinese Laundry, but now it's actually, really, finally here. Eeee! It's no surprise the ex-Hillsie was tapped to create her own line since she's always rocking the most killer platform stilettos, and when she hosted a launch party right here in NYC, it was filled with JUST that. Her collection includes six mostly-pastel options inspired by her style and what she likes to wear, according to WWD. There's embellished flats perfect for everyday use, a signature go-to nude pump, a party-ready mesh ankle bootie, a pointy wrap-around stiletto that looks perfect for work, an ankle-strap pointy heel to step it up a notch, and a cute-to-boot ballet flat with a bow rope detail.
