• The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Cara Delevingne’s Handbag Collection for Mulberry Unveiled, Is Donna Karan Leaving Her Label?, and Kanye West Thinks The Press Hates His Interracial Relationship

    Cara Delevingne Mulberry

    Mulberry‘s “secret” collaboration with Cara Delevingne is out– and as expected, it is a collection of bags designed by the model herself. The aptly dubbed “Cara Delevingne Collection” consists of one style in three sizes, available in 17 different colorways. Delevingne said she wanted to design something  “practical for the modern-day woman – or man. “ Indeed, the bag fulfills the specs–thanks to its two handles, you can wear it as a backpack, a tote, or throw it over your shoulder. Die-hard Cara fans will take a particular interest in the limited edition version of the carryall, which features small lion-shaped studs modeled after Delevingne’s finger tattoo. The bags will be available in mid-August, and range from $1090 to $1530 (WWD)

    090 Kanye West Wears Custom Maison Martin Margiela for Yeezus Tour

    Kanye West is back to his old tricks. His boo might be getting that Vogue cover he always wanted for her, but Yeezy’s gripes do not start and stop at what’s going on in the fashion world. The rapper launched another epic rant at his ‘Yeezus’ tour show at New Jersey’s Prudential center, to speak out against how he’s portrayed in the media. He calls the press, who he says has tried to make him “look like a maniac or an animal,” just because they are uncomfortable with his interracial relationship and “afraid of a rapper that was raised by two educated parents.”  I’m doubtful that anyone cares about the “interracial-ness” of Kanye’s relationship, but imma let you guys take this one… what do you think of ‘Ye’s latest comments?

    Alexander McQueen is coming out to address the allegations made against them by a fomrer intern, who says she was not paid for her four-month stint at the label. The intern is seeking £6,415 in backpay, after she says the brand failed to pay her even minimum wage for her work at the company.  “We had no idea until now that she had any concern about the time she spent at Alexander McQueen,” a spokesperson for the label said. “We’ve paid close attention to the debate in this area and we now pay all our interns. We support and encourage young creative talent and offer a window into what is a fiercely competitive, but rewarding industry.” (Vogue UK)
