Gomez to design fall collection for Coach

If we needed yet another reason to look forward to fall fashion, Selena Gomez just gifted us one.

According to PopSugar, the multi-hyphenate and Coach brand ambassador is teaming up with Coach Creative Director Stuart Vevers yet again to create a full Fall 2018 ready-to-wear collection. Launching for preorder on Aug. 14, PopSugar says the collection — which will have a pervasive “powerful feminine spirit” — will be available in Coach stores around the world by Aug. 31.

As for Gomez, she says she’s excited to continue her partnership with the brand in such a creative way.

“I am so excited to be working with Coach again,” she said in a press release. “Getting to create my own collection with Stuart has been such a fun process, and I can’t wait for everyone to see what we have been working on over the past several months.”

Allbirds unveils sustainably-made flip-flops

These flip-flops are sandals you can feel good about splurging on.

Forbes says footwear brand Allbirds has launched a selection of flip-flops made from sustainable Brazilian sugar cane that aims to replace “plastic foam in traditional shoe soles, which is often made from dirty oil and is highly polluting.”

The launch of these sustainable soles follows a string of other notable releases, such as unveiling kids sizes called Smallbirds and making a line of “‘tree’ runners and loungers made from eucalyptus fiber,” Forbes says their latest launch allows customers to “purchase interchangeable straps at $15 for the Japanese-inspired flip flops, which are available in four summery colorways.” The sandals themselves cost a cool $35.

Only available for a limited time, Forbes says the technology used to created these flip-flops — called Sugar Zeffers — may have a bigger impact on footwear going forward, with the company planning to make the technology available to other shoe manufacturers.

“We know there’s interest within the industry, but what we’re hopeful for is that it will expand beyond that,” co-founder Joey Zwillinger told Forbes. “There’s something about sugarcane-derived adhesives in solar panels that pieces together a green cycle that is really special.”

 

Cyrus creates stylish collection for Converse

If cool kicks are on your summer shopping list, look no further.

Singer Miley Cyrus’ new collaboration with Converse has finally arrived, according to PopSugar, and with it comes a lot of glitter, color and creativity. And for Cyrus, the design process was about giving her fans exactly what they’d expect of the colorful performer.

“I definitely had my fans in mind and in my heart when I was creating,” she said. “I put what they love about me and what I love about them into the design.”

Her designs range from pink-soled high-top Chuck Taylors to platforms with glittery laces, PopSugar says the star’s styles run the gamut — and even includes some clothing items, such as sweatshirts and track pants.

Perhaps the best part about her collection is that it’s totally inclusive: “No age, no gender, no sex — I wanted everyone to feel included,” she said of her designs.
