NOT THIS TIME: A few Internet reports have speculated that Coco Rocha is working as a summer intern at Vogue. Not so fast, a spokesman told WWD, although Rocha has been spending time with editors. “She wants to learn more about the business,” he said. “She pops in and out, when her schedule permits.” Planning a future career?
IN THE POOL: A retrospective look at swimwear design is set to make its debut at The Wolfsonian-Florida International University in Miami Beach, Fla. As part of the exhibition, photographer Miles Ladin was commissioned to create a contemporary portrait of Miami Beach bathing culture to complement the historical images on display. Ladin, who has shot for WWD Collections, The New York Times, W magazine and Harper’s Bazaar, titled his installation “Sun Stroke Stimulus.” In this series of photographs, Ladin captured “both the raw beauty found in bathing culture as well as the aspirational desires presented in the display of flesh,” he said. “Beauty on the Beach: A Centennial Celebration of Swimwear” and the “Sun Stroke Stimulus” installation will open July 10.
