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 »

Click & Strip Model Gets Down To Her Skivvies On Command

Looks like Karl Lagerfeld has a new favorite lady in Emily DiDonato. The two are working on a sassy little project for fancy swimwear line Eres in which Emily starts out dressed in full Chanel and ends up looking adorable in nothing more than an Eres swimsuit. Half naked models are nothing new, but her stripping process is: Every time you click the mouse, she loses a piece of clothing. If frat boys were into fashion, this would be an Alpha Phi (or whatever) wet dream. Emily doesn’t start stripping until May, but if the image above is any indicator, it’s worth the wait.

Heels Don’t Always Equal Stylish

Sometimes designers try to put their spin on a classic style, creating something completely amazing. Boots with heels, for example, are a wardrobe staple now, but when they first debuted, did the combo puzzle people? Still, adding height to normally flat shoes doesn’t always work. High-heeled sneakers have yet to take off in a big way, and we have a feeling boat shoe-style stilettos, like this pair designed by Dsquared2, won’t either. Plus, these cost a whopping $695.

Pill Chic–Cool Or Just Plain Messed Up?

When it comes to fashion, I adore the subversive. Black leather and studs, gun print dresses, safety pins, you name it — I’ve worn it and loved it. So it’s perhaps hypocritical of me, but I have to draw the line at this “cheeky” pharmaceutical trend. Keep reading »

Are Your Jeans Responsible For Polluting China’s Pearl River?

Pollution of the Pearl River has long posed a problem for China’s ecosystem; however, the degree of contamination has become twice as bad since 2007. One reason, according to a new Greenpeace report, points to the denim factories lining the banks of the water. Clearly, China is a huge manufacturer of consumer goods, and the denim industry also relies heavily on Chinese production. According to CNN, Xintang (a town that is home to many of these factories) “produces 200 million pairs of jeans per year including 60 different foreign brands. That is just under half of the 450 million pairs of jeans sold annually in the United States.” During the dye process, garments are bathed in harsh chemicals, and while many of these companies claim that they recycle this contaminated water, the truth is that it’s simply dumped into the river. This isn’t just an environmental issue; several of the toxins released are cancer-causing. Keep reading »
