Busy Donald
Donald Glover has many projects on his plate; a series of short films, performing a Coachella, a recently released short film starring Rihanna. Well, add to this very busy palette a collaboration with Adidas, and Glover is quickly becoming a master of multi-tasking.

“With this project, I wanted to encourage people to think about how their stories can be told on their feet,” Glover explains in a recent article on dailyfrontrow.com. “Value isn’t quantified by what you wear, rather the experiences from them. And you make the decision on what works for you, you live through your own lens. The partnership for me is about being able to exemplify what doing your own thing truly looks and feels like.”

Donald Glover Presents will contain his take of three classic Adidas sneaks. The Nizza, the Continental 80, and the Lacombe will come in a subtle white. The surreal spots on the sneaks reflect fragmented moments between Glover and M’onique.

Donald Glover Presents will be available globally on April 26. Price points range from $80 to $100.

Irina Shayk smells purty
Supermodel Irina Shayk has a new job. Shayk has been named the new face of Jean-Paul Gaultier’s “Scandal A Paris” eau de toilette, as well as a brand ambassador of the fragrance. “Scandal A Paris” is the newest fragrance in Gaultier’s “Scandal” fragrance line.

The “Scandal” fragrance line is distinguished by notes that are fresh, light with a touch gourmand, such as pear, jasmine, and honey. The “Scandal” fragrance line embodies that powerful, independent woman who is sexy and not afraid to standout.

The video from the “Scandal A Paris” fragrance is shot in black and white and features Shayk, Rossy de Palma, and Jean-Paul Gaultier himself. Shayk is seen in high slit black skit, revealing her gamine legs with a black blazer with sexy black lace underneath. In the video as Shayk enters a restaurant she grabs attention with all heads turning toward her.

Au revoir Corinne
French fashion designer Corinne Cobson has passed away. Cobson rose to prominence in the 1990s with her skill and acuity at creating garments that went beyond gender. She was one of the first fashion designer to have models on the runway without stockings or tights with her models clad in low-cut sweaters and skintight jeans.

Throughout her career, Corinne Cobson collaborated with many brands including L’Oreal and Cacharel. Cobson had recently dabbled in interior design, creating a collection of sofas and chairs.

Corinne Cobson is survived by her husband Tanguy Loyzance. She was 62 years old.
