The Daily first spotted the unexpected duo of André Leon Talley and Will.i.am at our Fashion Media Awards. And a few days later, they were seen front row at Public School’s Spring 2015 show. Ever since then, where André has gone, the singer was never too far behind. As it turns out, the two had an arrangement in the works, which André revealed in today’s WWD. After leaving his artistic director post at Zappos Couture, Talley is taking on a fashion and style director role at Will.i.am’s i.am+ firm, where he’ll be focusing on the i.am.Puls “fashion bracelet.” The smart watch, which debuted last month at the Dreamforce conference in San Francisco, aims to become the next must-have gadget for the fashion set. Now that it has ALT’s stamp of approval, will you be buying?
