Preview This: Lagerfeld’s Sexy New Short, “Remember Now”

The news today from fashion giant Karl Lagerfeld: The Kaiser directed a short film, and the preview has just hit the web (the man sure does know how to build anticipation). Titled “Remember Now,” the 48-second spot above doesn’t give away a lot in plot detail, but our guess would be that there isn’t much of one anyhow. It’s presented by Chanel, so the video’s main purpose is to act as a clever promotional tool for showing off the fashion house’s clothes in a sneaky yet sexy way (similar to other brands’ techniques for creating buzz with mini-movies).

Still, we’re entranced by the images of Parisian night clubs, glitzy runway shows, and what the—is that some sort of couture orgy at 0:25? OK, we’re hooked. [YouTube] Keep reading »

Head To Space With Jockey’s New NASA-Approved Fabric

My grandmother always credited undershirts as the key to staying healthy in the winter, and Jockey seems to share her sentiments. The company is reinventing their products with a special fabric originally developed to keep NASA astronauts comfortable during temperature fluctuations in space. For spring 2011 Jockey International will launch a new collection called Smart Fabric, making it cool for everyone to wear undershirts. And this isn’t just a winter trend; the undergarments will do double duty by keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The women’s line includes a reversible T-shirt, a tank, a bikini, and a hipster brief, and everything comes in packs (two tops or three undies) costing $21 apiece. Now those childhood dreams of heading to space can come true in at least the sartorial way. [WWD] Keep reading »

Would You Watch Your Wedding Dress Disappear?

Most women would never dream of throwing away their wedding dress. Brides search for weeks, sometimes even months, to find that perfect white gown, and end up spending hundreds, even thousands of dollars on an item they’ll wear for just one day (then store in their closets for years to come). But now with the push for more environmentally friendly options, the notion of keepsake fashion is changing. Students studying fashion and engineering at Sheffield Hallam University created a wedding dress that’s the ultimate in eco-friendly. After the big day, simply add water and the white gown dissolves, leaving zero trace of its existence. While most would gasp in horror at watching their wedding dress disappear, this is actually an interesting move towards sustainability for our environment and the need to create (and use) green fashions. Since the dress is made of polyvinyl alcohol, it will simply disintegrate into nothingness and space in landfills, not to mention your closet. [Telegraph] Keep reading »

Chictopia Users Find Themselves Unexpectedly Starring In Payless Ads

We’re still trying to wrap our brains around the bizarre intellectual property fiasco brought about by Payless Shoes and Chictopia. In a nutshell, several fashion bloggers who posted their own self-styled photos to Chictopia (a social network that allows users to upload pics and engage in an online community) unexpectedly found themselves featured in a campaign for Payless. From the bloggers’ side of things, several expressed that they wouldn’t have been so disturbed had Chictopia informed them of what was going on, and if they’d done so, the bloggers might actually have been into the idea. In an article on the website International Fashion Bloggers, one girl involved explains:

“I wear Payless shoes and they’re a huge company with a lot of reach, so I was excited to have gotten their attention. Then, when I clicked through the campaign, it struck me that this was not a mutually beneficial situation. The only people who stood to gain traffic or profit from the campaign were Chictopia and Payless. I was really disappointed because I would have loved to work one-on-one with Payless on a campaign if they were interested in my personal style and my outfits featuring their shoes, but instead they cut me out and worked on a deal with Chictopia instead.”

High Heels With Hamsters In Them Bound To Raise PETA Ire

These high heels appear to have hamsters (gerbils?) embedded in the platform under the toe. We here at The Frisky pride ourselves on our extensive knowledge of extreme shoes, from crazy stripper shoes to the highest heels ever made. But animals? In shoes? That’s gone too far. Thankfully, or disappointingly, depending on your relationship to animal rights, we do not believe these shoes exist in reality. They’re from If Shoes Could Kill, a blog that showcases some of the absolutely most freakiest shoes around, real and pretend. We’d probably rather wear these banana shoes, personally, than clomp around with the hamsters. [If Shoes Could Kill] Keep reading »

And The Prize Goes To … How To Make Jeans And A T-Shirt Fab

Last week, we asked for your best advice for taking jeans and a T-shirt from casual to fab in exchange for Rachel Roy’s Streamers & Spring Garden. Mad props to all who entered because you all definitely know how to express your personal style. But there could be only one winner. We think Venuswingsloved had the best advice for getting your look and attitude right:

“Put on some sexy underwear, maybe even a lace tank top poking out from underneath the shirt, sky high heels, and some sexy booty music that they play in the clubs. Dance around for a little bit, while applying false lashes. Big earrings never failed to make any girl look glamorous, and spray on some of your sultriest perfume. I personally am a fan of euphoria blossom or l’homme YSL (it’s musky with notes of freshness, it’s pretty sexually ambiguous, and smells like pure sex on a girl.) Keep that music playing in your head, strut outside and use your smile like a weapon.”

Thanks for all your comments, and don’t forget to enter this week’s contest, signed copies of Emily Giffin’s new book, Heart of the Matter! Keep reading »
