Gap And SF MoMA Tap Ed Ruscha, Other Artists For T-Shirt Collab

We’re loving us some artsy fartsy style today. The SF branch of MoMA has just released a series of artist-designed t-shirts in collaboration with the Gap to celebrate the museum’s 75th anniversary. The goods feature the work of some of our favorite artists like photographer Ed Rushcha, who made a color block address-book image, and Chris Johanson, who illustrated a museum-going family. Other participants include Simon Evans, Barry McGee, and Kerry James Marshall. The best part? They’re all under $25, so you can own a little piece of wearable art without breaking the bank.

365 Days In Paris: Just Like Riding A Bike

Sometimes the best thing for a broken heart is to take that heart to the bar and to get it really, really drunk.

I spent most of the past week in bed.

It sounded mellow and uneventful, so I threw on my boots and a sweatshirt without a second thought.

Little did I know that “getting cous cous” meant going to a lively bar with a group of people and getting wasted … Keep reading »

You Can Help Haiti By Buying Perfume—But Should You?

Perfume maker Bond No. 9 has just announced that when you buy their “Scent of Peace” perfume, 10 percent of the proceeds will go towards relief efforts in Haiti (purchases in the next 30 days). Naturally, Bond isn’t the first company to offer charitable donations with product purchases, but this brings up an interesting point—is it honorable of brands to do this? As a shopper, does it feel ethical to be prompted to buy a perfume for a good cause? Or do you think you (or companies) should give your money directly to charities? [Fashion Tribes] Keep reading »

Triple Threat: Rag & Bone To Launch Three Diffusion Lines

Rag & Bone, one of our favorite tomboy-perfect lines, is set to launch three diffusion collections next month. The collections will focus on basics (which, to be honest, doesn’t seem too far from the already generally basic style of the brand), with the fairly self-explanatory titles of JEAN, KNIT, and SHIRT. Expect good everyday staples like skinny jeans, perfectly constructed and worn tees, as well as button-ups that combine just the right amounts of preppy and hipster flair. Keep reading »
