Pharrell’s new adidas Sambas celebrate spring in style.

While we wait anxiously for Pharrell’s debut Louis Vuitton Men’s collection to be shown in Paris in June, fashion’s favorite it-boy has been busy creating a colorful new series of adidas Sambas. This weekend’s Something In The Water Festival in Virginia Beach will be the exclusive pre-launch for the collaboration. The lilac, orange, red, yellow, and pink colorways have arrived just in time for spring. Furthermore, the new Sambas use ECCO leather’s water-saving tanning technique, which saves 20 litres of water each hide. The collection will be available internationally on May 6 through the adidas Confirmed app and Pharrell’s own brand, Humanrace.

The late designer’s famed fine art print corsets are on many a fashion wishlist, but if you’re still saving up for the big purchase, check out the new show in the meanwhile. ‘Vivienne Westwood Corsets: 1987 to Present Day’ chronicles the evolution of Westwood’s rebellious corsets, placing them within the context of historical fashion, culture, and fine art. It demonstrates how she elevated a normally restricting clothing into a symbol of empowerment.

The exhibition will run from May 8 to 14 at the Conduit St. Vivienne Westwood shop as part of London Craft Week.

Kim Kardashian’s luxurious date with Choupette.

A mood change has been forming, and reports are spreading that the Kardashians will not be invited to this year’s Metropolitan Gala. Kim put those rumors to rest this week – literally – as she cuddled up with Karl Lagerfeld’s beloved cat Choupette. Yes, that’s the cat Lagerfeld left £1.3 million in his will. Kim also posted a snapshot of herself staring at a wall of the designer’s archived works. Given that she wore the Marilyn Monroe dress to the Met last year, Kim will have a difficult time outdoing herself, but she may try with access to Lagerfeld’s huge collection for companies such as Chanel, Chloe, and Fendi.
