It’s a bear! It’s a toy! It’s a unisex fragrance by the inimitable Jeremy Scott for Moschino, cheekily named Toy. The fashion brand and licensing partner Euroitalia will be launching the eau de toilette by the creative director on November 13 at Harrods in London. The packaging features a teddy bear with a T-shirt that reads, “This is not a Moschino Toy.” Clever, no? Nestled inside the stuffed animal is the bottle, which is said to evoke the playfulness that Scott is known for. 

The campaign for the new scent was shot by Steven Meisel and stars Brazilian model Isabeli Fontana holding up a headless stuffed bear.

Schiaparelli Presses on with Couture After Zanini’s Departure

Since the label announced the departure of its creative director on Friday, the fashion world has been wondering what the next move will be for the house of Schiaparelli. Marco Zanini served at the helm of the label for a mere two seasons and was ousted after several rumors that the designer was displeased with what was going on at the house. Schiaparelli’s people released a statement on Friday assuring the public that it would soon announce a successor, and it looks like the fashion house had better get a move on as it plans to show a couture collection for the Spring 2015 season. 

How that collection will be shown is a different story. According to WWD, the label still has not decided how it will present the collection, which seems to be the least of its problems, considering it still has to find a designer to lead the house. Sources say that Zanini and Schiaparelli owner Diego Della Valle, whose “forte is accessories, shoes and bags,” had a strained working relationship. The source notes Della Valle’s shrewd business outlook as a possible obstacle for any designer looking to join the label. “I don’t know how much he really believes in rtw and I don’t really see him backing a couture project, independently of whoever designs the collections.”

Internal difficulties aside, Zanini’s departure definitely does not look good for Schiaparelli. After disappearing for 60 years, the fact that the house’s revival has already been so rocky could make customers and investors uncertain about Schiaparelli’s future. Were things so terrible that they couldn’t be resolved? Zanini was only there for two seasons. Though we don’t have information on what went down behind-the-scenes, it does seem very odd that the pair couldn’t come to an agreement on anything. But perhaps Zanini’s departure is ultimately what was best for the brand. If the house couldn’t get it together now, who knows what other drama may have arisen if he’d stayed on.

Kim Kardashian Claims She Started the ‘Selfie Movement’ in Her New Book

The Internet is full of pictures of Kim Kardashian. It doesn’t take much, just a simple Google search and you’re treated to thousands of images of the reality star. If that’s too overwhelming, you can always visit her Instagram page to view more snaps of Mrs. West. But for Kim, this is clearly not enough. What if you can’t log on to the Internet? Surely people deserve to have access to photos of Kimmy, even if they forget to pay their Time Warner bill. That’s why she’s releasing Selfish, an aptly-named book featuring over 1,000 of her selfies, which is due to hit shelves April 28, 2015. Amazon already has a description of the tome, which lets us know what to expect, but also leaves out some pertinent information about the reality star.

 

A photo posted by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

“From her early beginnings as a wardrobe stylist, Kim Kardashian has catapulted herself into becoming one of the most recognizable celebrities in Hollywood,” the blurb reads, completely glossing over that home video with a certain Love & Hip Hop Hollywood star, which actually put her on the map in the first place. But, you know, whatevs.

The description goes on to list Kim’s many accomplishments: Being BFFs with Riccardo Tisci, starring in a hit reality show, shilling clothes and accessories through Lipsy and Sears, starting the selfie trend — wait, what? 

“[Kim is] widely regarded as a trailblazer of the ‘selfie movement’—a modern-day self-portrait of the digital age.” Similar to how Marc Eckō definitely didn’t invent the “hipster beard,” we’re pretty sure cell phone-obsessed teenagers, nay, everyone who ever used a camera phone to take selfies, didn’t get the idea from Kim. Perhaps you could call her a selfie enthusiast, but trailblazer? That word may be a little too strong.

But besides a stray hyperbole and omission of pertinent historical information, the premise of the book is pretty simple. “For the first time in print, this book presents some of Kim’s favorite selfies in one volume—from her favorite throwback images to current ultra-sexy glam shots—and provides readers with a behind-the-scenes look into this larger-than-life star.”

Don’t all trample each other at once trying to get a copy.
