The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Get Your ‘Yeezi’ Nameplate While Supplies Last, Pharrell Williams for the Gap, and Olivier Rousteing Announces Balmain Facebook and Twitter

• Want Yeezy all over your chest? Well, now you can, but with the Kanye West (brand) ‘Yeezi‘ nameplates at Colette. The price is unlisted, but with Kanye West x Giuseppe Zanotti shoes ringing in at $5,883, we can only imagine how much it’ll cost. Although I think a certain stone-faced Kardashian might be the only person who actually wants to wear one. (Styleite)

• New Yorkers, try to contain yourselves. Nicholas Kirkwood‘s very first US store opens this Friday. (WWD)

• Vogue Japan editor and self-proclaimed “fashion victim” Anna Dello Russo is teaming up with H&M for a limited edition collection of “over the top” accessories. Dello Russo herself is known for wearing some seriously bold and bodacious baubles, so the collection will certainly reflect her flamboyant sartorial proclivities. The range will offer jewelry, bags, sunglasses, shoes, and a trolley to shop with. The collection will drop October 4th. I’m already eyeing those crocodile-embellished shades and that turquoise kiss clap clutch! (Grazia)

Julia Bluhm held a protest outside of Hearst’s headquartes in Manhattan, to pressure Seventeen magazine to commit to publishing one unaltered spread a month. Said Bluhm, “Girls see these pictures and think they have to look like this (pointing at cover of Seventeen) to be considered beautiful when in real life these photos are often photoshopped, so it’s kind of impossible to look like that in real life. It can lead to low self-esteem [and] depression.” If anything, this whole experience will be good to mention in her college essay, am I right? (The Jane Dough)


Pharrell Williams looks haute as hell in these Gap ads shot by Annie Leibovitz. Yes ma’am, I will ‘Gap’ with him anytime. (The YBF)


• The ever-fine Olivier Rousteing (whose hair is layed like Halle Berry) recently announced the official Balmain facebook and twitter accounts. The brand’s creative director is “so excited to let you into the Balmain world,” but I’m just excited to hear that oh so dreamy accent. Like ’em at and follow on twitter @balmain. (Balmain YouTube)
