Maybe it’s just residual jealousy that our senior fashion editor, Marina, got to spend the past two weeks in her native Brazil, but I’ve been dreaming of sunny São Paulo. So, it turns out, is photographer Todd Selby. For his first visit of the new year, Selby dropped in on Brazilian designer Alexandre Herchcovitch and his husband, Fabio, at home, and the complete photo set is well worth browsing for anyone, like me, fantasizing about a South American jaunt. The same slightly skewed style that runs through Herchcovitch’s collections is evident in his taste for decor, wide-ranging enough to include McDonald’s golden arches, vintage barber’s chairs, and framed portraits of Marge and Homer Simpson alongside antiques and contemporary design pieces. There’s news on the Herchcovitch horizon, too: This month, the designer presents his first-ever pre-fall collection.
Phillip Lim’s New Handbag Collection, London Cracks Down On Fashion Intern Exploitation, Todd Selby X Hogan, And More…
3.1 Phillip Lim, which first launched its handbag and footwear collection for Fall, is set to release its new 31 Hour bag line this Spring. The collection of four styles, including a cosmetic clutch, a portfolio, a classic tote, and a weekend, is designed for a woman “who needs more than 24 hours a day.” [WWD]
In London, over 100 fashion houses have been given a warning not to exploit interns. “The letters give fashion houses plenty of warning that they are under scrutiny. If they are not playing by the rules, now is the time to put things right,” says Michelle Wyer of HM Revenue & Customs. [Telegraph]

Clicking through Todd Selby’s snaps of Pharrell Williams’ art-filled Miami home, you could be struck by any number of things. Such as: Damn, that guy has a lot of KAWS paintings of Family Guy characters. Or, hey, why don’t I live in a spacious art-filled pad in Miami? Or, boy, it feels about 10 degrees colder in New York when you watch the sun glinting off somebody’s pool. But the one I’d encourage you to take away, if I may, is this one: Statement-colored shoes—even pink shoes, even for guys—can really make a white-tee-and-jeans outfit look like a whole lot more. And in fact, pink footwear, like Pharrell’s raspberry-hued boat shoes (left), has a long, proud history. I’m still kicking myself for missing the scuffed-up pink Chelsea boots Paul Smith showed on his men’s runway back in Fall ’09. At his color-saturated show at Pitti in Florence last season, Raf Simons showed pink on his men’s footwear—hidden on the soles. You can hold out for those when they hit stores this Spring, or, for instant gratification, head over to the Florsheim by Duckie Brown pop-up that’s currently open (through March) at 109 Mercer Street in New York’s Soho. Duckie designers Steven Cox and Daniel Silver have used color in particular to goose the ultra-trad Florsheim shapes: For Fall, there are brogues in a rich, bloody red not too far from Pharrell’s, and for Spring—arriving in store next month—suede bucks and wingtips in a Pepto color the designers call Chalk Pink.
