Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Appearances can be deceiving, as we were reminded this morning when twice our eyes did double takes while doing our daily style scroll. Could you tell what these products are hiding as? Example one: Issey Miyake’s latest treat is a T-shirt for Opening Ceremony that comes packaged in the likeness of a chocolate bar. Although this made us pause—which did we want more? A T-shirt or chocolate? Chocolate. [Fashion Week Daily]
Up top, laptop sleeves made from old sweaters for a reasonable $20 by designer Davey Sommers. (Or, an innovative DIY method of recycling the goods in your giveaway pile if you’re handy with a needle.) [Style Frizz] Keep reading »
Here’s one to add to the book of epic bad tattoos—glasses on your face. To ask “whyyyyy?” at this point seems fruitless because clearly such a design could only be prompted by sheer insanity. But here’s what we’re really wondering … how does he (apparently) have a girlfriend? If your boyfriend did this to himself, would you stay with him? Maybe the design is a symbol of being able to see his love more clearly? This dude must be some really, really, really special guy. On the inside. [Gawker] Keep reading »
It might have taken a while for the military jacket trend to trickle down to the affordable mass retailers, but we’ve finally found a version we love. (Of course, when you spend time seeking out the perfect alternative to the luxury model, the second you find something, no one’s really talking about it anymore. Which is just as well.) This Forever 21 soldier jacket plays up the style well with its epaulets and antique-inspired buttons, but stays far away from camp with a neutral color. [$27.80, Forever 21] Keep reading »
We’ll come clean: Opening Ceremony is one of those concept stores we love to follow and write about, but have we ever bought anything there? No. We believe the term is called … aspirational living. Anyhow, now’s the chance for us to step across the gilded threshold because the high-end retailer has teamed up with Levi’s to launch a special collection with a $150 price cap. The range will include some denim items, including jackets (nice, bringing them back), plus a bunch of unisex pieces (everyone’s favorite thing these days).
Interestingly, a large chunk of the line will be devoted to corduroy. Teen Vogue reports that there will be “eight different shades including lavender and curry.” The material is definitely classic, but come to think of it, we haven’t worn our corduroy pants in quite some time. How do you feel about them? Different for girls than guys? [Teen Vogue] Keep reading »
