• In addition to their Keira Knightley cover, Elle UK has released a limited-edition special order Pharrell Williams cover for June 2014. While the magazine will undoubtedly catch flack for putting Pharrell in a Native American headdress, the singer looks darn good. Do you think this is yet another case of culture appropriation?

Proenza Schouler spring 2014 12
• In case you were wondering what else you could stuff your drawers with from Anna Wintour’s favorite Proenza Schouler, today the brand announced swimwear. At their resort show Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough announced that they had designed 20 styles of swim suits in collaboration with Swimwear Anywhere. Expect prints galore as that’s what the boys are known for. (Elle)
• Linda Evangelista + Steven Meisel + McDonalds = Moschino ad campaign? It seems that’s the recipe that Jeremy Scott settled on for his first offering from the brand. Done up in a bit of old world glamour, messy hair and black and white portrait included, Linda smizes in a skirt set bringing a bit of prim and proper to the kitchy collection. We’ve got to say, we didn’t quite expect this one.(Fashion Bomb Inbox)

• New Balance has a bone to pick with Karl Lagerfeld.  Apparently according to New Balance (and we’re inclined to agree with them) besides the letter logo, Lagerfeld’s new $360 sneaker is the same sneaker they have been designing since 1970, which they currently sell for $112. Do you think NB has a case? (Lucky)


• Jean Paul Gaultier has lent his design talents to amfAR.  A nautical striped bag he has designed, modeled by Heidi Klum in the campaign, will be sold at Bloomingdales with profits going to help raise awareness and find a cure for HIV/AIDS. Available for $30 the bag looks like the perfect summer tote! (Fashion Gone Rogue)
