Cop Taylor's kicks.

Have your sundresses and denim shorts been feeling a little lonely lately? Well, go tell them to cheer up, because their new BFF just entered the world—Taylor Swift's latest Keds collection. The new set of 17 shoes is the perfect combination of preppy and quirky, featuring everything from songbird prints to subtle stripes and polka dots. They may technically be a fall collection, but considering how well they'd go with jorts, there's no one stopping you from wearing them right this second.

Yeezy season is truly approaching, y'all! Kanye West and A.P.C.'s long-awaited second collection finally got its release date and it's soon—like July 17 soon. Back in January, we got the first look at 'Ye's much more developed, military-inspired followup for the French basics brand. If you're already familiar with how (artistically) unpredictable Kanye is, it won't come as a shock that he made a ton of changes to the collection, adding and dropping pieces, right up until the last minute. "What happened at the end is exactly what he does to his own records," A.P.C.'s Jean Touitou told Style.com. "So I didn’t take it personally—like when it’s something he makes, and ten days before it drops, and then he wants to start from scratch."
Pharrell for G-Star Raw.

Not gonna lie, when we first heard that Pharrell was teaming up with G-Star Raw and Bionic Yarn on a denim collection made from recycled ocean plastics, we struggled a little to visualize the results. [Insert shrug emoji here.] But now we can safely say it sounds a lot crazier than it looks! G-Star just released the first look at the collection, which drops in September, and, TBH, you’d never guess the origins of the pieces. Ironically, the collection looks even more luxe than any other clothing collab Pharrell has done in recent memory.

Yesterday, Miley Cyrus posted photos of herself in a bright orange swimsuit next to her sister who was, for some unknown reason, wearing a leopard print onesie, ears, and a painted-on nose and whiskers. While her sister's outfit warrants its own discussion, we're here to talk about Miley's swimsuit—it's from the brand new Ashish x Topshop collection. Miley isn't the only female pop star to be as into this collection as we are—Rita Ora, Lily Allen, and Katy Perry have also shown off their pieces. The collection is all over Instagram and I'd like to get in on it, OK?
Miley, actually, is the only celeb to show off a piece from the collection that we plebes can buy online. I thank you for that, Miley.

Rita Ora, on the other hand, showed off the light-up sneakers that have been making the rounds on Instagram. The shoes sold out within the hour, so there go my dreams of getting my feet in a pair of these.
New 'Pretty Little Liars' x Aeropostale!
Pretty Little Liars has been on hiatus since March, but it's back tomorrow. To coincide with its ~dramatic~ return, Aeropostale has launched the second collection in their PLL collaboration. The pieces hit stores yesterday and were designed by Mandi Line, the show's costume designer (also the costume designer on Faking It!). We chatted with her about the new collection, which character's style she likes the best, and whether to expect more pieces in the future.
MTV STYLE: How would you describe the overall style on Pretty Little Liars?
MANDI LINE: The overall style is fun, unique, obtainable, and wild. You never know what to expect.
How do the clothes in this collection fit with each character?
I did my best to make sure that the collection, which is for the fans, was as iconic as possible. Who wants stuff they can buy anywhere, any day?
Thanks to PacSun, your local mall is about to be cooler than it’s ever been. The mass retailer has been making serious strides in their offerings lately, from stocking their shelves with Yeezus tour merch to partnering up with streetwear brands Diamond Supply Co. and Been Trill. Now, come June 10, you’ll be able to cop the A$AP Mob’s style at any of their stores. While we’re still waiting for their debut studio album, you can at least shop their capsule collection.

In case you hadn't noticed, Katy Perry is very into lights these days. This new KP era is all about light—from performance outfits to her world tour name, Katy loves lights and the materials that reflect them. It should come as no surprise, then, that Katy is already wearing the light-up shoes from the latest Ashish x Topshop collaboration (which isn't even out yet *hair flip*).
The bad news for Katy is: She's going to have to add another suitcase to her Prismatic World Tour travel gear. The good news is: That's because all the pieces in this new collection—especially the light-up ones—are dope.

We still don't know when we can ~officially~ get our hands on Rita Ora's highly anticipated, and presumably highly awesome, Adidas Originals collection, but we do know it'll be worth the wait whenever it drops. How do we know, you ask? Because at this point, it seems like whenever Rita steps out of the house, she's wearing a new piece from her line. I feel like this collection is going to be huge. I mean, my list of Rita x Adidas pieces to buy gets longer by the day.
Between the metal-shell toes we've been dreaming about for the last six months, tropical-flower-print hoodie, and the floral jumpsuit, I have a lot to add to my closet. And now I have some colorful shoes and a sheer jumpsuit to consider. It's a lot, but I like it. It keeps my brain active, right?

We've been brimming with excitement since Adidas Originals first announced their collaboration with Rita Ora back in January. The brand told us to "expect the unexpected" and promised "details to follow" and then...nada. Adidas, you tease! To be fair, the line isn't set to come out until Fall/Winter 2014, but the silence has still been torturing us. Well, fellow Ritabots, the wait is over. Miss Ora MUST have heard our cries, because she just gave us all a little sneak preview!

Zooey Deschanel has always been a bit prim and proper in her own adorkable way, so it’s pretty perfect that the actress/singer/nail-art extraordinaire has teamed up with Tommy Hilfiger on a capsule collection called "To Tommy, From Zooey," naturally. Zooey’s designs are exactly what we’d expect and want from her: hyper-femme pieces with a vintage flare that'd work as well for a concert as they would at family brunch. Oh yeah, and if yacht clubs are your stomping ground, you’re going to love this even more.
