Iveta Abolina For DENY Feathered Arrows Tapestry

We're always on the lookout for ways to make our space look cool, but we want to do it with little effort and an even littler budget. This Iveta Abolina for DENY Feathered Arrows Tapestry meets all of our requirements--it's affordable and it looks good (aren't those colors gorgeous?), and it's a quick way to completely makeover our room without even breaking a sweat.

Soo Joo Park

Soo Joo Park had more than just her birthday to celebrate this month--she was just named L'Oreal's newest global spokesperson. The supermodel joins such famous faces as singer/actress Jennifer Lopez and models Lara Stone and Doutzen Kroes. "I like that they really take pride in their spokespeople. They have a personal relationship with all the people that they choose to represent the brand," said Park, who is the brand's first-ever Asian-American ambassador. She added, "To be the first to represent a global brand is a huge honor. But I don't want to be just that one thing; I want to be the global ambassador." Of receiving the news on her birthday Park said, "I really couldn't ask for a better present."

 

Kendall jenner

Kendall Jenner's resume just keeps growing--the 19-year old is now the new face of Calvin Klein Jeans Denim Series, an entirely new line, limited-edition line of athletic pieces.  The campaign was shot by Alasdair McLellan and styled by Melanie Ward, and features a fresh-faced Jenner alongside male model Simon Nessman. Also visible on the photos, the hashtag #mycalvins, which was started when singer Justin Bieber starred in the brand's Spring 2015 campaign and earned the brand an additional 3 million followers on various social media outlets. Jenner, who has 21. 8 million followers on Instagram alone, has helped push the success of the #mycalvins campaign by posting selfies in her calvins.  Look for the  Calvin Klein Jeans Denim Series in Opening Ceremony stores on April 15, and on CalvinKlein.com on May 15. 

 

Of a Kind

Of a Kind is one of our favorite shopping sites (we've featured a few products on Must-Have Monday), so it was kind of a big deal when we heard about an Of a Kind home decor collection launching at Target (another of our favorite shopping destinations, by the way).  The collection will feature items from three of the indie e-commerce site's brands: wall art by Dealtry, coasters, soap dishes, toothbrushes, and balsam pillows by Izola, and the most adorable animal bookends and wall hooks we've ever seen by Wolfum. The Of a Kind for Target collection will only be available in 350 of the nearly 1,800 Target brick and mortar stores across the nation, and sadly there are no plans to stock it online right now, but we're keeping our fingers crossed that we'll find it on Target.com eventually.

Pharrell

Pharrell Williams is not one to shy away from fashion risks; he has a style all his own (do we need to remind you of the hat), and whether you love it or hate it, you have to admire him for his sartorial fearlessness. Now the "Happy" singer is being honored for his personal style with a Fashion Icon Award from the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America). Williams is only the second male in history to receive this top honor, the first being Johnny Depp back in 2012, but he has certainly earned it. "If cool was a person, it would be Pharrell," said CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg. We couldn't agree more. Now the only question is, what kind of unique look is this guy going to pull out of his hat for the awards ceremony (no pun intended)?

 

Peter Dundas

It's official--Peter Dundas is taking the helm at Roberto Cavalli after being named the Italian fashion house's new creative director.  Dundas, who has been creative director at Emilio Pucci since 2008, will take over both women's and men's ready-to-wear collections, as well as accessories and all of Cavalli's licenses, including Just Cavalli. Both Dundas and Roberto Cavalli himself showed their Fall 2015 collections last month in Milan for their respective labels, but come September the former will be debuting his premiere collections for Roberto Cavalli. "The choice of Peter Dundas was made with the desire to evolve a style that combines glamour, tradition and innovation, recognized worldwide as the signature of Cavalli since the birth of the house," said Roberto and Eva Cavalli in a statement. High praise coming from one of fashion's greatest. 

 

Beyonce

Beyoncé is designing a shoe! No, not a shoe collection (which would be beyond amazing), just one shoe. The "Flawless" singer has teamed up with Giuseppe Zanotti to collaborate on a pair of ultrathick platform stilettos inspired by the Queen Bey herself. "Beyoncé has very clear ideas--she knows exactly what she wants," Zanotti said of designing the shoe. "I'm working on finalizing the design with her stylist right now. And Beyoncé will then say what she likes and what she doesn't like." We cannot wait to see what these two come up with.

Super Basic Fantom Mirror Sunglasses

Spring has finally arrived and we couldn't be more excited. We've already pulled out the flirtiest skirts and dresses we already own, and we've compiled a list of everything we need to buy for the new season--these Super™ Basic Fantom Mirror Sunglasses are at the top. We love the oversized frame, and the mirrored lenses couldn't be cooler (notice how they're slightly golden against the grey frame?).  These sunnies will no doubt be in heavy rotation this spring.

Madewell Slim Boyjean Patched-Up Edition in George Wash

Can we just say we're obsessed with these jeans. Obsessed! We typically like to invest in new denim that's more practical--you know, something we can wear anywhere and with anything in our closet--but the Patched-Up Editon of the Slim Boyjean from Madewell is so good we're thinking they'll be a great investment for spring. And even though they're decidedly rugged, we know they'll look as fabulous with a blazer and heels as they will with a T-shirt and Chucks. 

Emily Current and Meritt Elliott

Emily Current and Meritt Elliot are, without a doubt, fashion's It girls. They launched denim label Current/Elliot (they left in 2012), are stylists to countless A-list celebrities, design a so-hot home collection for Pottery Barn Teen, and wrote a book called A Denim Story. Now the duo are back to designing their own fashion label, and it's aptly named The Great. The Great, which launched in time of Spring 2015, is a multi-category contemporary label with a "whimsical Americana" aesthetic. "It’s sort of like a more feminine, charming Ralph Lauren. We really have this American aesthetic with heritage workwear, army denim, t-shirts, fleece... like, these classic fabrications [that have] our take on them in terms of proportion and detail," said Meritt Elliott of the new label, adding, "A lot of times people use this term 'American wonderland.' We love that, too; it kind of feels like a wonderland." 

 

WWD

It's been 105 years since Women's Wear Daily printed its first paper, but times, they are a-changin', and in this new age WWD is dropping the "Daily." Like many fashion publications, including Lucky and W, WWD is going to scale back on the print side of the house and focus on its web presence. Starting the week of April 29, WWD will print a weekly publication. The paper will still feature the same types of industry news stories--retail news, original profiles and photography, party coverage, op-eds--while the website cover up-to-the-minute news and updates. 

 

DEliAs

And in case you missed it, online fashion retailer dEliA*s is no more as of last week. dEliA*s, which was similar to Charlotte Russe or Wet Seal, launched in 1993 and pretty much ruled the decade. Sales have declined in recent years, though, and in November of last year dEliA*s was delisted from the Nasdaq Global Market. Some dEliA*s brick and mortar locations are still liquidating merchandise, as well as store fixtures, so if you have one in your area you might want to check it out. Goodbye, dEliA*s; we'll miss your denim maxi skirts, daisy prints, and stacked eyeshadow pots.

Bando-pen-set

Having cute pens at the ready is kind of a big deal around here because we write a lot and we're into fashion, obvi. These super adorable pens in the Ban.do Assorted Pen Set have been circulating around the office and there isn't a single one of us who isn't obsessed with their sweet little messages. Seriously, who wouldn't love seeing the words "Gosh, you look so cute" on one of those feeling-less-than-spectacular, barely-made-it-out-the-door, oh-no-my-shoes-don't-match kind of Mondays?
