Fashion News Roundup: People Are Already Returning Marni x H&M, Jimmy Choo Designed a Shoe Inspired by Iris Apfel, and Gisele Models for Esprit

Marni at H&M Is Already Being Returned: The folks over at Madison Avenue Spy found a bevy of returned items from the Marni collaboration at their local H&M store. We wonder: with all the money to potentially be made from selling your unwanted Marni at H&M wares on eBay, why bother returning anything at all? {Madison Avenue Spy} Is Azealia Banks Playing The Chanel Show in Japan? The rapper took to her beloved Twitter account to announce an upcoming gig with the label, apparently playing their Japan fashion show. The tweet has since been deleted, maybe because it was supposed to be a secret? Anyhoo, if you're headed to the Chanel show in Japan, you might be treated to a live performance from Ms. Banks. {Fashin} Jimmy Choo Designs 'Iris' Shoe: The folks over at Jimmy Choo have designed a woven leather sandal with a five-inch heel named after 90-year-old style icon Iris Apfel. While it must be a great honor to have a shoe named after you, we wonder which 90-year-old woman is still wearing five-inch heels? Wouldn't flats have been a more appropriate choice? {Telegraph}

Typewriter from Collector's Personal Collection Inspired Mary Katrantzou's Fall 2012 Dress: Remember that red typewriter dress from Mary Katrantzou's Fall 2012 offerings? Well it turns out the designer was inspired by one of collector Adwoa Bagalini's antique typewriters, the Olivetti Lettera 35. When she saw the dress, Bagalini immediately contacted Katrantzou, who confirmed that Bagalini's typewriter was indeed the inspiration for the print. And she's sending the lucky typewriter maven a dress! {Retro Tech Geneva}

Gisele Bundchen Fronts Esprit's Spring Ad Campaign: To help build their cred as a fashion-forward brand, Esprit has tapped Gisele Bundchen to model their March offerings. This is on the heels of news last month that the brand is closing all their North American stores. Isn't Gisele expensive? (And unrelated: what on earth did they do to her face? She's unrecognizable in some of the snaps.) {Fabsugar}
