Normcore’s out, kidcore’s in…

In a recent interview with T magazine, Kanye West said, “I want to dress like a child as much as possible.” Jack Antonoff made a similar statement, saying he “likes to look like a big kid.” Even Jeremy Scott sent models down the runway in baby-doll dresses covered in bunny and teddy-bear prints. This borrowed-from-the-babies style is becoming increasingly prevalent, raising the question: Will kidcore be the next normcore? [Paper]

Shopping, the A$AP way…

A$AP Rocky caught up with Complex at Maxfield in L.A. to talk retail and runway. The rapper revealed his love for fashion, saying he even searches thrift stores and eBay for great finds. He also talked very highly of Rick Owens, noting that they’re “from the same world. You have got certain types of people who just live life, and you’ve got other people who identify and obsess with life being art.” And when asked what outfit he would wear for the rest of his life, the rapper replied, “Rick, Raf, Dries, and Jordan.” [YouTube]

Moda gets a makeover…

Luxury e-tailer Moda Operandi unveiled a new website design today. The redesign features “bolder imagery, exclusive videos, and editorial.” Deborah Nicodemus, CEO of Moda Operandi, explained the reason behind the new look, saying, “It is critical that shoppers feel as confident purchasing luxury brands online as they do offline, hence our website redesign reflects the same attention to detail that we devote to our curation and clients.” [Moda Operandi]

How’d you like them Apples…

Last Friday the Apple Watch was made available for preorder, and according to projections, it is believed the company sold almost 1 million units that day. Slice Intelligence, a firm that tracks and projects consumer spending, made the claim based on receipts from online orders. Slice’s report also stated that 62 percent of customers purchased the less-expensive model of the watch, while 71 percent of shoppers opted for the larger 42-millimeter screen size. [Quartz]
