Camouflage is a big deal when you’re out traipsing through the woods bird watching, or hunting. Year-round hunters likely have a wide variety of styles and colors to match the season, but now Cabela’s has developed a line of color-changing camo with temperature-activated dyes. In warmer temperatures, the ColorPhase clothes show brighter, greener patterns, while in cooler temperatures the camo is browner to match winter surroundings. This means one set of camouflage can work all year long reducing the need for more clothes.

Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog might be tying the knot, again. Like a barnyard Liz and Dick, the on-again, off-again couple have been married before—at least twice on The Muppet Show and once in The Muppets Take Manhattan—although the legality of those unions is debatable at best. For her latest foray down the aisle, Miss Piggy went whole hog, hiring no less than Vivienne Westwood to design her wedding gown. “Vivienne Westwood is fabulous—just like moi,” says Miss Piggy in a statement from Disney. “When I asked her to design this wedding dress for moi’s new movie Muppets Most Wanted, she was thrilled and I was thrilled. The only one a bit ‘iffy’ about it was the Frog.”

Over the years we’ve seen designer Organic by John Patrick channel everything from urban traipses through Manhattan’s East Village to 19th century British photographs. This New York Fashion Week, the designer chose to aim higher for inspiration, as in, the stars and NASA photographs from the Gemini and Apollo moon missions. Drawn from the collection of John Siebert, the photographs were the recent stars of Lempertz’s recent photography auction, and an astral plane Patrick chose to draw from.
