[ via Lost at E Minor ] Behold these shrunken mini-cigarette-sized literature books offering Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness, Leo Tolstoy’s The Death of Ivan Ilyich and Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde…People are really starting to rethink print media. Do these show stoppers come with a magnifying glass?
“Don’t try to claim things I haven’t earned honest, man, Slick Rick and Outkast is on this jam.” Yeah, dude got a little weird, but he’s still a founding father. Plus, no one tells a story like he does, which is why Slick Rick’s 24 track “The Art of Story Telling” seems so appropriately titled […]
Chase & Status are a production duo from London that have enjoyed success in the UK since the early 2000’s. There talent and music has only just made the journey across the pond to take on the American market, producing tracks for the likes of Rihanna and Snoop with a slew of new material lined […]
Spanish luxury label Loewe booked supermodel Daria Werbowy as the new face for their latest Spring Ad campaign which was photographed by Inez & Vinoodh. A really proper & boring campaign, staying close to Loewe’s image but really far from the Daria we like!

Just a little peek into the full review of Milan menswear f/w 2010 fashion week. I was feeling the set design for the presentation of the Byblos collection. Found objects worked really well as a backdrop to the grungy warrior aesthetic of the collection. Great job on the layering and beautiful knits and boots. A+ […]
It comes as no surprise that Alexandre Herchcovitch drew the spotlight for Fall/Winter 2010 Sao Paulo Fashion Week, where he presented his mens and womenswear collections. What baffles me though, is how one mind can produce such contrasting thoughts simultaneously. Herchcovitch’s womenswear was beaming with cultural references of nomadic/gypsy lifestyles juxtaposed against a royal divinity […]
It’s no wonder why when I first heard ‘When They Fight, They Fight’ by the Generationals I was perplexed as to what “generation” they were from. I was amazed to find that this duo made up of guitarists/songwriters, Ted Joyner and Grant Widmer was in fact not from the 50’s or the 60’s as I […]
An interesting Video interview that was presented at PREMIUM Exhibitions in Berlin about Fashion blogs, asking Suzy Menkes Head Fashion Editor at The Herald Tribune – As well Yvan Rodic (Facehunter), Jennie Tamm (The Coveted) and Julia Knolle and Jessi Weiss (LesMads) to share their opinion on the blog business… Video by Mary Sherpe
The photographer Gavin Bond shoots Lindsay Ellingson, Candice Swanepoel, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Shannan Click and Elyse Taylor for for GQ UK February 2010.
[via GQ] – Miranda Kerr was the first Australian model to join that superhot clique, the Victoria’s Secret Angels. Yes, she dates the wimpy Orlando Bloom. But we’ll try not to hold that against her… In this really short editorial shot by Alexi Lubomirski she is just flawless….
“Walking Home” is a unique testament to the experimental-ism of music. The underlying deep house sound of Swiss producers Crowdpleaser & Ly Sander takes on an interesting feeling when it is combined with an infectious acoustic guitar riff and a poetic, indie, folk-like vocal. Its effect is almost hypnotic, putting the listener in somewhat of […]
I thought we had already written about Ian Pool‘s photographic work, but tracing back through the archive I see I guessed wrong. I probably had his site bookmarked in our “to do” posts, But I remember clearly his super Hero series, half toys and half costumes. The result of his fantasy worlds is pretty cool…
This is one of the coolest hard cover cases I have seen in a long time, the BookBook by TwelveSouth is an $80 Leather MacBook Case, unfortunately only for 13″ and 15″ (not for me then)… But if you like to pretend you read old tales or encyclopedia, its perfect! this design will turn your […]
In the Spirit of the Fashoin Weeks’, I though it would be fun to throw some fashion trivia at you and see how many people know which look came first the table or the violin? So, if that was easy, here is the bonus question: Name the designers of each look? The first person to […]
Listen to “Talamak” Here Buy Here Toro Y Moi is 23 year old Chaz Bundick of South Carolina. At first listen his music might fall into the chill wave/glo-fi genre that has been made so popular over the past year by artist such as Washed Out and Neon Indian, but personally, I think Bundick transcends […]
For Fall/Winter 2010 Alexandre Herchcovitch went Royal Gypsy on us, and nearly knocked me off my chair with his historical references and meticulously styled headdresses. Gypsy trends definitely have a past life nostalgia in my book so it is hard to recreate that fantasy with the wonderment that Herchcovitch fulfilled in my heart. Turbans dripping […]
