Style Scoop: Pharrell Williams Designs Some More, Professor Kanye Hits The Classroom, Benjamin Moore and CFDA Launch Colorful Initiative


Pharrell Williams is trying his hand at French leather goods. The singer (and general jack of all trades) teamed up with Moynat to create a capsule range of handbags shaped like vintage steam locomotives. Moynat, a trunk-maker revived three years ago by Bernard Arnault, previously focused mainly on ladylike bags in luxury leathers and exotic skin. This collaboration with Williams certainly marks unchoo-choo-ed territory. [Women’s Wear Daily]

Kanye West knows all when it comes to fashion, which is why he’s teaching a course at the Los Angeles Trade Technical College. Known for its courses in fashion design and technology, it makes sense that Kanye, of all people, would be teaching 250 hours there—right? Right. Perhaps Kim will make an appearance for show-and-tell? We’d love to be a fly on the wall in that classroom. [Vulture]

Paint, color and coatings brand Benjamin Moore teamed up with the CFDA to highlight the influences of color and design in America. The initiative aims to “bring together the architectural design and fashion communities to advance our trade and encourage entrepreneurship in America,” according to Carl Minchew, vice president at color innovation and design of Benjamin Moore. The initiative kicks off with the HUE Awards in New York, which will shine the spotlight on Trina Turk, who will receive the CFDA Trailblazer Award. [Women’s Wear Daily]

Some of her outfit choices might be questionable, but we love Lena Dunham for her red carpet gusto. Certainly, that translates to her work. The Girls writer/producer/director/actress is working on a documentary called Three Suits for HBO that's based on Bindle & Keep, a bespoke-tailoring company in Brooklyn. It's a favorite of members of the LGBTQ community, so the film will follow several of the store's transgender clients as they go through the process of having custom suits made. [Vanity Fair]

Got a boo-boo? Might as well help it heal in style. Isaac Mizrahi teamed up with Band-Aid brand to create a collection of adhesive bandages inspired by the designer’s current collections. They come in a variety of designs including watercolors, hearts, stripes, camouflage and roses and are now available in drugstores and online. [Glam Inbox]
