Fashion News Roundup: A W Ad Campaign, Alexander Wang Accessory Exclusive and Thom Browne's Insane Sunglasses

Check Out This Striped, Color-tastic Editorial: Models lounging around a playground in candy-colored zig-zags, florals, swirls and colorblocks is exactly what we needed to remind us that it's summer, now that the sun has disappeared. The crazy patterned socks are particularly adorable. {Contributing Editor} Alex Wang's Accessories to Debut With eBay Exclusive: Everyone wants them, everyone will kill to have them, so what better way to democratically level the playing field than eBay? On Friday, June 17, you can hash it out on the web for four exclusive styles before the complete official release in July. { Fashionologie} W's New Mission To Be "Fashion's After Party": Stefano Tonchi has helmed the mag for a year now with less success than hoped for. So, a new ad campaign featuring high-heeled masked models (presumably at some glamorous party the likes of which you are not invited to), will be splashed about the web and on NYC taxis in an attempt to garner excitement about the poor performing publication. {WWD}

Pippa Middleton Is Single?! 'Tis true. The 27-yr-old sis to Duchess Kate apparently split from cricketer boyf Alex Louden a few weeks ago. But with that infamous derriere, it's doubtful she'll be riding solo for long. {Daily Mail}

Thom Browne's New Eyewear Line is Welding Inspired: The designer is partnering with Dita Eyewear Inc., who crafts the glasses for his runway shows, and will reveal the first batch at the Silmo Trade Show in Paris this year. The collection has a retro vibe but with unusual silhouettes--he cites skiing and welding goggles as inspiration for the frames' mesh, metal and leather panels that are crazy cool. {WWD}

Target's Upcoming Accessories Collaborations: For the fall and holiday markets, the chain mega-retailer is partnering with hatmaker Albertus Swanepoel for a line of 14 women's toppers, as well as former fashion editor and Mattel designer Dana Kellin, for jewelry. {Racked}

Anna Dello Russo's 10 Rules for Sale Shopping: ADR's lists are always funny and this one gave us a chuckle with #9, which warns that sales are seductive and dangerous "like the beautiful mermaids of Pirates of the Carribbean 4". {AnnaDelloRusso}

It Is Illegal To Bike In a Skirt in NYC: Yeah, we had no idea either. But apparently Jasmijn Rijcken, a Dutch bike company exec, was pulled over by the NYPD when riding around town for "distracting the cars". Um, please. If the cops think we're wearing pants all summer, they are so wrong. {Gawker}
