A$AP Rocky Knows His Fashion Influence, Mulberry Hires Julie Gilhart

And Lily Allen has a new gig thanks to H&M.

A$AP Rocky teamed up with Ferragamo to celebrate the brand’s 100 year history. The rapper is one of four men featured in "A Man's Story," a special photo and video series that celebrates men who make their own rules. A$AP, who has become known for his bold fashion sense, tells Fashionista he’s always known his style was influential: “I understood how much of an influence I had was when I would walk around Harlem, Downtown and Soho and always get stopped, complimented or questioned about my attire.” {Ferragamo}

Looks like Mulberry is revamping its whole team. Following the news that former Céline designer Johnny Coca will be joining as the new creative director, the British luxury brand has now named Julie Gilhart non-executive director. Gilhart joins the struggling brand with an impressive resume, including consulting gigs for Amazon and LVMH and 18 years at Barneys. Between them and Cara Delevingne, maybe Mulberry has a shot at turning around. {WWD

Singer and fashion favorite Lily Allen has joined the panel of judges for the annual H&M Design Award. The jury now has eight members to help pick a winner from the eight finalists who hail from design schools around the world. With 50,000 euros on the line, we hope Allen is as scrupulous as she is fashionable. {WWD}
