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.
It's only Tuesday, but Cara Delevingne is already having the best week of her life. In the last 24 hours, she flexed her acting skills in a new trailer for an upcoming British TV show, got matching tattoos with her BFF 4EVA Jourdan Dunn, and frolicked around in a trench coat in Burberry's latest campaign. (In the last 24 hours, I rewatched the entire season of Faking It and finished a large pizza by myself, so we're both pretty accomplished.)
But she just upped the ante by announcing a new capsule collection for DKNY. Yup, that's right: Cara Delevigne is tacking on a "slash fashion designer" to her already abundant resume, right after "model slash actress" and right before "professional human being slash worldwide eyebrow muse."
We need these in our hands right now.

Since it was first announced in March, we've been keeping a close eye on the collaboration between Lorde and MAC Cosmetics. The two-piece collection features a deep-plum lipstick named after her album Pure Heroine, which can be used as a lipstick or a stain, and a black eyeliner called Rapidblack. Finally, they're available for purchase.
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.
Pharrell's Stan Smiths for Colette.

We forgive you if you’re having trouble keeping up with all of Pharrell’s fashion and design collaborations. It seems like there’s a new one every week: Comme des Garçons perfume, a Kartell table lamp, compost jeans made by G-Star Raw—for the sake of time, we’re gonna stop here. But Pharrell’s latest collab makes more sense than any of his others. The singer/producer/current Adidas collaborator teamed up with upscale Paris retailer Colette on 10 custom pairs of Stan Smiths personally painted by Pharrell for a good cause: proceeds go toward his charity From One Hand to Another, which provides educational tools to underserved kids.
Aesthetically, this collaboration could have gone in two very different directions. This year, Pharrell has been spotted in yin and yang custom takes on the Stan Smith: a sparkling pair encrusted with Swarovski crystals and, for daytime, a crafty pair covered in doodles.
Check out Pharrell's first fragrance.

We've known since last fall that Pharrell would be releasing a fragrance. In March it was announced that he would be collaborating with Comme Des Garcons on the scent and that it would be called "G I R L," just like his most recent album. We also found out that despite its name, the scent would be unisex. That preliminary info held us over for a few weeks, but we wanted more. We always want MOAR. Good news: Today Pharrell revealed the forthcoming bottle and what the fragrance would actually smell like to WWD.
The scent, packaged more like a sculpture than your average perfume bottle, is definitely something you’ll want to put on display. It features a colorful cartoon by Kaws, a friend of Pharrell's and the artist who designed the 2013 VMA Moonman, NBD. The 100-ml. bottle is priced at $135 and a 10-ml. travel size version costs $30.
While reading about a scent doesn't exactly reveal, y'know, what it smells like, it can help sculpt what to expect. For this unisex fragrance, you'll be sniffing on “top notes of neroli, lavender and white pepper; middle ones of iris, styrax and violet, and base ones of vetiver, patchouli, cedarwood and sandalwood,” according to WWD. Those things might sound a little out there on
paper a screen but–hey–we trust Pharrell.
Ritabots, rejoice! The Rita Ora x Adidas Originals collaboration has an official release date! Well, a few actually: August 21 for the 'Black' line; September 4 for the 'Pastel' and 'Colorblock Packs' lines, and November 1 for the 'Spray' and 'Roses' lines, according to WWD. We've been saving our pennies and refreshing our browsers feverishly for updates on when exactly to expect this great collision of minds since long before Adidas Originals' announcement of the collab in January, and finally sat her down to chat about what's to come.
