1 In 4 Men Fall In Love In “Seconds”

Forget notches on the bedpost: When it comes to true love, men fall hard fast. Most think they can tell whether it’s “the real thing” after a single date, whereas women aren’t certain until the sixth, a study finds. For nearly a quarter of men, things move even faster: They believe in love at first sight and know whether a woman is “the one” after just seconds, the Telegraph reports. Men who hail from Britain, where the study was conducted, also fall in love more often than women—an average of three times, compared to once for women. Read more… Keep reading »

Fashion Goes Loony For Balloons

Right, so, artist Rie Hosokai makes gorgeous dresses out of — you guessed it — balloons. Hosokai, who goes by Daisy Balloon (of course), strings together hundreds of balloons into wearable art. You probably can’t sit down in them, and the balloons lose their light, airy shape after 24 hours or so, but that hasn’t stopped Rie from charging customers $2,000 to wear her creations. That sounds crazy, right? It’s pretty insane. Also insane — the amount of detail, creativity and artistry Hosokai manages to produce in balloon form. She certainly puts the balloon animal guy at Bennigans to shame. Check out a few more photos, after the jump! [Fashion Indie] Keep reading »

Ashton Kutcher Thinks Fashion Will Have High-Tech Smarts Soon

“I think the big next wave will be wearable technologies. Your phone will be your true PC, and these technologies will act as your mouse and keyboard. You’ll have a high-fashion bracelet that will perform functions for you—it’ll track your health, your movement, your sleep, your activity—and by wearing a couple of rings, you’ll be able to type in the air or take pictures with your fingers. There’ll be a device that will track your eye movement, whether it’s an earpiece with a camera or a necklace that can project and record. That Tom Cruise movie, ‘Minority Report,’ got a lot of it right from what I’ve seen.”

Ashton Kutcher, giving his predictions for fashion in the future. Yes, yes, Ashton, there’s already lots of designers working on fusing fashion and tech, don’t worry about it. We’re not particularly impressed with your prediction. We are, however, impressed with this photo of you and your, uh, lovely surprise package. [Details] Keep reading »

J. Crew’s Jenna Lyons: Step Into My Office

Jenna Lyons is known to surprise. How else would the J.Crew president and creative director explain her penchant for the unexpected – menswear tailoring with feminine details, stripes with polka dots, florals with animal prints or neutrals and neons? But when visiting her Astor Place office, which just happens to be right upstairs from Stylelist, the mix-master said something truly bewildering: “T-shirts and I don’t really get along.” How could the purveyor of casual cool not look good in a t-shirt? She continued, while demonstratively gesturing with her hands, “I mean, we just don’t agree. Every time someone takes a picture of me in a t-shirt I’m like, ‘Why did I do that?’ I love t-shirts; they just don’t love me. It’s very sad. I don’t have a great body for T-shirts.”

And this is the sort of Lyon-ess honesty we’ve come to know and love. Keep reading for other amazing anecdotes, beneath the pictures below, about Bill Cunningham, her high school style, and the origin of her office knickknacks. Read more… Keep reading »

Retail Giant Zara Accused Of Age Old Practice Of Slave Labor

Just a little reminder for us to think about where our clothes come from. Spanish retailer Zara has been accused of child labor and violating fair labor practices by Brazil’s Ministry of Labour and Employment. According to the agency, 52 workers in one of the company’s São Paulo factories were being held in “slave-like” conditions, and at least one underage girl was found working there, violating child labor laws. Workers were required to work 16-hour shifts in windowless factories, and were paid significantly below Brazil’s minimum wage, earning between $170 to $286 a month. As a result of Brazil’s several months’ long investigation, Zara’s been charged with 52 infractions.

Notes the Brazilian fiscal auditor, Zara “should be responsible for all of its suppliers, and it is a duty of the company to be aware of how its merchandise is being produced.” But that’s often not the case. And when retailers fail to follow the long tail of their supply chain down to their factory workers, everyone loses. Keep reading »
