Watch out, world. Toyota is heading back to the future.
The automaker has hinted it’s looking into flying cars. Now its Lexus luxury brand has actually built a working model of a hoverboard. That’s right, an actual working hoverboard. It’s real, but not for sale. Yet. The board uses liquid nitrogen-cooled superconductors and magnets, according to the Lexus website. The technology is already zooming around Toyota’s home country. A Japanese railway company last year set a new world speed record using a magnetic-levitation train. Toyota tipped its hand a year ago that it’s been experimenting with this for cars.

When we viewed the Idan Cohen show back in February, we were dazzled by the beautiful intricacy of his work. Apparently, the stylists over at Cosmopolitan were too, since their July cover girl, Nicki Minaj, dazzled in a crystallized body suit from his RTW collection. Mr. Cohen debuted his designs for the first time at New York Fashion Week in February. We have no doubt it will not be his last. As time ticks down to September, we cannot wait to see what Idan Cohen has in store for us with his S/S 2016 Collection.

MARC JACOBS SLOWLY UNVEILS HIS FALL/WINTER CAMPAIGN
This morning Marc Jacobs unveiled a picture from his latest campaign starring Willow Smith. Over the past year, Willow and her brother Jaden have been two of the most interesting celebrity kids to watch, fashion-wise. Last week the Internet was buzzing about Jaden’s prom pictures, but it’s safe to say his sister wins this round—her campaign image is pretty stellar. While it may seem insane that a 14-year-old has landed a major fashion campaign, keep in mind this is the same kid that had a hit single at age 9.
Willow joins Cher in the campaign, photographed by David Sims. There is no word yet on who else might show up in the series, but on his Instagram, Jacobs states that there is still more to come. Is it weird to be genuinely excited about advertising?
