In New York City today, the actor wore a pair of light-wash RE DONE jeans that have a flared leg and high waist. Moodboards reveal dozens of images of his jewelry, his Golden Goose Sneakers outfits, his past fashion items-ideas that were workshopped between the two designers for months to make sure that each style is as authentic as can be. As we walk around, I realize the magic of seeing Korn's pieces up close. Ziwe points out a few bags that are hanging. They aren't Korn's classic beaded pieces, which come in chunky plastic ball shapes, but rather micro-beaded bags that come in cow print or dotted with rainbows and pearls. Until now, I didn't even know Korn launched this version of beading. The joys of in-person shopping! Korn considers this bag a milestone in her world of design. I'm ready to evolve, she says. In addition to this elevated rendition of beading, Korn has gone on to create homeware a beaded colander, glassware trays and bowls, and even jewelry earrings and necklaces. Fans of Shayk's style can look forward to seeing her walking about in the latest from the collab. In the shadow of the Burj, and backdropped by a series of indifferently designed yet grandiosely sized skyscrapers all around us, this mishmash of a selection seemed constructed with that greatest of creative criterions: purpose. The other weekend, I was at a party at which a friend-mid-cheerful gesticulation-accidentally spilled a can of Miller Lite on my feet. At one point, this would have been a minor emergency. I might not have hissed Ruin my satin shoes, why don't you Cher-Horowitz-from-Clueless style, but I definitely would have been annoyed and if I'd been wearing my agonizingly uncomfortable yet beloved Intentionally Blank cheetah mules, may or may not have cried in the bathroom. As it was, though, I was able to shrug, smile, and fix the problem with a half cup of water. This, my friends, is the beauty of wearing black platform Crocs, made of easily washable Croslite. They're not Balenciaga or any other designer collaboration, unfortunately, but I'd be more than willing to trade up at some point in the not-too-distant future.
