Style Notes: Ke$ha's Jewelry Collab; The Man Repeller Writes a Book
Five pieces of fashion fodder to make your Thursday delightful.
Another day, another collaboration. Ke$ha has teamed up with designer Charles Albert to launch a new jewelry line titled "Kesha Rose by Charles Albert. The collection, featuring arrowheads, skulls, fossilized shark teeth and turquoise stones, will be available this summer with prices ranging from $30 to $750. The pop star explained in a statement: "Going to their office was like a crazy playground for me -- so many fun stones and colors and weird objects. We just sat around and played with all of it for a few days and ended up with a sick collection of pieces in the end." Through her Instagram, the "Die Young" singer gave fans a sneak peek of her new gems. In one Valencia- or Nashville-filtered photo, she's seen posing next to a pony to emphasize a dark oversized ring. [HuffPost]
From telling funny and awkward stories behind her fashion blog The Man Repeller, Leandra Medine will now be making her first book debut this summer. The CAA-repped blogger, who recently celebrated her PJK collaboration launch in March, is set to release Man Repeller: Seeking Love. Finding Overalls on September 10. The novel will recount Medine's personal journey with cutting-edge fashion from a young age. While the former Valentino intern has no problem rehashing her daily run-ins with turbans and drop crotch pants on her blog, she tells Avenue magazine writing the book has "been been a battle. It's been very hard to write." If her hilarious musings on drunken cheese binges are any indication of how the novel will read, it'll be worth pre-ordering now. [Telegraph UK]
Whether you love or hate what he has to say, the fashion world will always look towards outspoken designer Karl Lagerfeld for his opinion. In an exclusive out take from the fashion documentary Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's, the clip seems to be more about the Chanel creative director than the department store's rich history. Nicole Richie and Rachel Zoe also make an appearance, explaining how much they admire the designer. When asked by someone from behind the camera about what he'd call the movie, Lagerfeld responded with "For that I'd have to see the movie, huh? I know only the garbage I said. I do not know what the others said so I do not know. I cannot tell you." We look forward to his thoughts after the film's May 3 release. [Fashionista]
British fashion model Cara Delevinge has dominated the runway, and now, she's ready to hit the music scene with a bit of help from her pal Rita Ora. A source tells The Sun that "Cara's singing voice is a lot better than anyone will expect. She started sessions in LA this month and has already played Rita a few of the songs she's come up with." The runway superstar is reportedly working on her debut album with help from the "How We Do" singer. The insider reveals, "‘Rita has promised to head into the studio with her so they can record together. They want to create a fun pop track together." [Metro UK]
Another collaboration to hit the scene will be inspired by the film Fast & Furious 6. Guess and Universal Pictures have teamed up for a G by Guess capsule collection based on the action flick. The limited-edition will include jackets, graphic print T-shirts and tank tops for men and printed tank top, a studded moto jacket and tank dress for women.
