Philipp Plein says he hired Bella Hadid and Hailey Baldwin when no one else would
Fashion month shock-jock Philipp Plein is claiming (in so many words) that he discovered two of the most in-demand models working today. The German designer told Dazed, “When I had Bella Hadid walking my show (in 2015) I remember the casting director didn’t want her. The stylist didn’t want her. They said, ‘She’s not important.’ Nobody wanted to have Hailey Baldwin because ‘she was too short’ and she ‘didn’t fit the dress.’ Nobody wanted her then and nobody wanted Bella. Nobody gave a shit about them. I put them both on the catwalk and put them in the campaign.” [Ed note: Baldwin has appeared in a Philipp Plein campaign, Hadid has not.] {Dazed}

The rise of rapper-branded fashion lines

Call it the Kanye West effect: With rap’s influence reaching further than ever (and album sales at an all-time-low), more and more hip-hop artists are designing their own clothing lines without the help of more established labels. “It’s a way of saying, ‘Look, my brand is more powerful than any other brand out there because of the gravitas and cultural relevance that I have,'” explains HighSnobiety‘s Jian DeLeon. {Glossy}

Virgil Abloh could be collaborating with Ikea
Hypebeast reported on Thursday that Ikea could be releasing a collaboration with designer Virgil Abloh. The global housewares brand teased the news with a mysterious video and will officially make an announcement during its annual Democratic Design Days event, which will take place in Sweden on Thurs., June 7.

Earlier that same year, West was spotted touring Ikea’s offices in Sweden, though the company did not confirm nor deny any upcoming projects. {Hypebeast}
