Crocs teams with Benefit Cosmetics for nostalgic jelly shoe collab
Another day, another Crocs collaboration! The shoe brand has turned heads yet again thanks to its most recent partnership with Benefit Cosmetics. The resulting capsule is an offering of two styles—spins on the Classic Sandal and the Classic Clog. Reminiscent of ’90s fashion and childhood fun, both shoes flaunt a jelly composition, with Benefit’s bubble gum pink coloring, glittered touches, and limited edition charms (think: a Benefit mirror compact, pink jewels, and Benefit’s motto). The collaboration comes after the duo teamed last year for a social media giveaway, which was so successful that the beauty brand gained some 14,000 Instagram followers almost instantly. The Benefit x Crocs capsule will be available for purchase beginning July 13 at noon, with the Classic Clog retailing at $69.99 and the Classic Sandal at $49.99.
Change is afoot at KKW Beauty
Kim Kardashian West’s beauty empire is giving itself a makeover for a change. The reality star, who has still yet to change her married name amid her divorce from Kanye West, took to the brand’s Instagram account on Tuesday to reveal that the company will come back under a completely new brand, following a temporary break scheduled to commence August 1. Though no launch date has been announced, an expanded product range, a new arsenal of formulas, and an innovative shopping experience—which will allow customers to purchase all products under one roof—can be expected. To further prove the rebrand has nothing to do with a mere letter in the company name, the KKW team revealed that the rebrand has been in the works for some time—and West even helped conceptualize the forthcoming launch himself.

La Ligne and Athena Calderone debut second round of upcycling collab
New York City-based, stripe-famed brand La Ligne has teamed up yet again with author and creative entrepreneur Athena Calderone on a second upcycled collaboration. The duo’s first partnership last summer saw huge success, citing two consecutive sell-outs of its debut item: the Athena Tee set. The set comprised La Ligne’s signature Bateau Tee, but upcycled and cropped, with a matching face mask to accessorize. Now, with their latest collaboration they are introducing the “Athena Tee Set 2.0,” made with label’s blue-striped Charlotte tee and complete with a headband to match. To nod to the brand’s sustainability commitment, both drops used excess fabrics for the matching accessories. Retailing for $135, the set is available for purchase online and in the brand’s New York and Dallas locations. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the James Beard Foundation for Good.
