OK, so we know everyone’s all in love with Lego jewelry geniuses Dee & Ricky, but getting on board with their adorable Lego bow ties and belt buckles was easy. Supporting a $200 Lego ring? Not so much. The thin band is, admittedly, sterling silver, and the ring does come with several interchangeable pieces to swap in and out, but paying that much for what is essentially a $5 child’s toy is a bit too much for us to stomach. What do you think? Would you rock the Lego ring at that price? [Hypebeast] Keep reading »
Here’s one celeb capsule collection that slipped by us—apparently model Agyness Deyn has designed a small range called I Am by Agyness Deyn (very to the point, Agy) for Barneys in Japan. Conceived as part of an in-house green brand, Deyn’s designs appear to run the gamut. There are organic-looking mesh tops with an artsy/edgy vibe, hip-hugging jersey dresses that go more basic, and some zippered capris, which seem more model-chic than anything else.
It’s definitely not what we would expect from Agyness with her wide hipster appeal. What do you think? Check out some more images after the jump. [StyleFrizz] Keep reading »

Not much is known about Donyale Luna, one of the first black supermodels, except that she was weird and beautiful. It is believed that Donyale created the story of her heritage from her imagination. Born Peggy Anne Freeman in Detroit in 1946 to parents Peggy and Nathaniel Freeman, Donyale was
hardly truthful rather creative about her background. Despite the evidence of her birth certificate, she said her biological father’s surname was Luna and her mother was of Native American, Mexican, and Egyptian descent. She even claimed one of her grandmothers was Irish and had married a black man. Perhaps Donyale created this story to escape her true upbringing — her father was reportedly abusive and was murdered when she was 18. Or maybe she thought the fashion industry would be more accepting of a more “exotic” beauty. Of course, we’ll never know, but one thing that we’re sure of is that Donyale was a pioneering force in modeling and remained strange throughout her short life. Keep reading »
