Keep warm with these style stories.

Kobe Bryant may have announced his retirement, but that doesn't mean he's through toying with fans' hearts. The NBA legend launched a sneaker scavenger hunt on Tuesday, sending fans across the globe in search of a signed pair of Nike Kobe 11 kicks. Clues will be revealed via social media until all 20 pairs are found. If you're too lazy for a scavenger hunt, non-signed pairs will be available in stores on Jan. 9. [WWD]

Something is brewing between the CFDA and the NFL with regards to upcoming Super Bowl 50, but the two organizations are being careful not to let any details slip. For now, the only information the CFDA has released is that "quite a few designers" are part of the project and we can look forward to "some really great stuff" come the big game on Feb. 7 at Levi Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. Shady. [Yahoo Style]

Eleven Paris, the French retailer that was sued earlier this year by an intimidating pack of artists including Kanye West, Beyonce, Pharrell and Rihanna, has "amicably" settled with the celebrities. The company was accused of more than 58 counts of trademark infringement for using the artists' likenesses without their permission. The exact terms of the settlement have not been made public.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, demand for Kim Kardashian's new "Kimoji" app — which features emojis of Kardashian's butt, among her other less famous assets  — caused Apple's App store to temporarily crash. Kardashian took to Twitter to console fans, and with the help of her tech team at Whalerock Media, which produces Kimoji as well as her uber-popular Kim Kardashian Hollywood game, all order was restored to the App store. At $1.99 per download, we're guessing that despite the hiccup, it was a good day for all parties involved. [New York Post]
