Cool Or Confusing: Balenciaga’s Play-Doh Heels

We make allowances for certain things from our childhood to revisit our wardrobes, but we’re not sure if Play-Doh fits in. These heels from Balenciaga‘s spring collection are inspired by Play-Doh and made out of a crazy mixed material meant to resemble the kids’ toy. What’s in it? Melted strips of different colored leathers (we didn’t even know you could melt leather, but OK), which are then laser-compressed and hardened. Funnily enough, designer Nicolas Ghesquière was quoted describing his shoes as “like Play-Doh,” which got misinterpreted, leading some people to believe they’re actually made out of the smushy dough.

What do you think of this Balenciaga bootie? Play-Do? Or Play-Don’t? [TrendHunter, Style.com] Keep reading »

Sunglasses That Double As A Wha?

Everyone loves a product with multiple uses. Lip gloss with SPF is awesome for keeping your pucker hydrated and safe from summer rays. Shampoo and conditioner in one is key for those who are just too lazy or busy to extend their shower time. But the latest in double duty is just a teensy bit out there on the weird scale. Chanel produced a pair of tortoise shell sunglasses that also serve as a way to untangle your locks. Yes, that’s right–sunglasses that double as a comb. They’re reminiscent of those shutter shades everyone was rocking last year, and a little too Kanye West for my taste. After all, if I’m buying Chanel, I want to feel classy. But when you think about it, this designer piece is really only half the price given its two uses. Are you sold? [The Gloss] Keep reading »

Fashion Blogger Bryan Boy “Traumatized” By Overzealous Fan

Le sigh. It’s, like, so hard being a fashion blogger because once you become totally webfamous then you have to deal with all of your psycho fans. For the most part, Bryan Boy is really enjoying his fashion fame. On taking pics with fans, he says, “I don’t mind it at all. It’s fun! Although I don’t consider myself as a legitimate ‘star’ or ‘celebrity’ … ”

However, he’s recently had a run in with a follower who really crossed the line… Keep reading »

Fordham University Set To Open Fashion Law Institute

New York’s Fordham University is set to launch a Fashion Law Institute, the first of its kind. (Elle Woods is squealing in her fictional court room.) Partnering with the CFDA, the program will respond to the growing demand for fashion-specific legal counseling. (Remember all those knock-off copyright infringement cases Forever 21 and Steve Madden have been involved in over the past few years?) According to Fordham’s announcement, the Institute “will provide legal services for design students and designers, train the fashion lawyers and designers of the future, and offer information and assistance on issues facing the fashion industry.”

A law school for brainiacs who read Vogue? Pretty cool. [Fordham.edu] Keep reading »

Inevitable: The Louis Vuitton iPad Case

We’re actually surprised this hadn’t happened sooner, but here she is: the Louis Vuitton iPad case, available in the iconic LV logo leather or a smoky graphic print. Predictably, the price tag hovers around some 350 dollars. Another surprise—these models aren’t out yet, and apparently won’t hit stores until 2011. Either people are running to get the Chinatown knockoff already, or Louis Vuitton is a marketing genius who knows that brand fans get way too worked up over anticipation.

Tavi Delivers The Goods: Vintage Sassy Porn

Yeah, yeah, yeah—so apparently Tavi‘s blog got shut down for a hot second yesterday after she posted some racy fashion pics. She was back up and running in no time with an apology from Google explaining that she had triggered automatic filters. Nevertheless, the internets freaked out over the scandal. As for us, the better story is what Tavi has up today: photos of old Sassy magazine issues, gifted to her by a generous reader. (Lucky!)

Indulge in some nostalgic Sassy porn by checking out some more highlights on Tavi’s blog; after the jump, our favorite images. [Style Rookie] Keep reading »
