Katy Kats (and we're including ourselves in that category) now have another way to feel connected to their favorite singer because the popstar, whose Prismatic World Tour kicks off in June, is designing a line of jewelry--the Prism Collection available exclusively at Claire's. The "Unconditionally" singer's collection includes tiger earrings and headbands with kitty kat ears, and Katy even included ROAR bangles, named after one of our favorite tunes. Prices start at $10 and go up to $22, which means we can easily score every piece and rock them at her concert this summer.
Vogue magazine is without a doubt the most important, trusted, and influential fashion glossy in publication--the bar against which other fashion magazines are measured--and now Vogue is working to make its website just as important and influential. According to WWD, Vogue.com is planning a huge expansion, including building an online team of 20-25 people and beefing up its "web only" content (10 stories a day each for fashion, beauty, and culture). So far Alessandra Codinha, formerly of Into the Gloss and Harper's Bazaar, has been hired as the fashion news editor, and Edward Barsamian, who left T: The New York Times Style Magazine, will come on board as a contributing style editor. The new and improved Vogue.com will debut in September, during Fashion Week, natch.
Another awesome collaboration to report: British shoe designer Sophia Webster has teamed up with 'It' retailer J. Crew! We're huge fans of Sophia Webster and her signature colorful, quirky aesthetic, and, like the rest of the fashion world, we're crushing on just about everything J. Crew has to offer right now, so this is pretty much one of the most awesome collaborations so far this year. "Sophia Webster seemed like such a natural fit for J.Crew," said J. Crew head designer, Tom Mora. "We are so well known for our love of color and pattern-mixing and I think this is something we really share with her, it's part of her DNA as a designer." Look for the Sophia Webster for J. Crew spring/summer collection in stores now.
