Nicholas Kirkwood’s Amazing Futuristic Heels For Rodarte

Check out these uh-may-zing heels by Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte’s spring 2010 collection. This season the Mulleavy sisters were inspired by Death Valley — the clothes have a “Mad Max”-meets-”Blade Runner,” neo-primitive, apocalyptic look. To match the urban guerrilla theme, Kirkwood, who’s known for his over-the-top footwear, created these Hermes-esque-leather-and-metal-spike-studded stilettos. The heel appears to be made out of nuts. Now, that’s hardcore. Take a closer look at Jak & Jil. Keep reading »

Christian Joy Creates Kooky “Where the Wild Things Are” Costumes

Designer Christian Joy, who’s probably best-known for having designed some extremely outre outfits for Yeah Yeah Yeahs front woman Karen O, has created a set of costumes inspired by the soon-to-be-released feature film, “Where the Wild Things Are.” The five monster-and-Max suits come with horns, cock’s combs, and tails — exactly what every woman is sure to be wearing this fall. The monster garb is on view and for sale at Space 15 Twenty, and part of the proceeds will go to 826 Valencia, where kids go to write. Check out more after the jump!

Lula Mag’s “Spell” Film Is A Quick Daydream During A Ho-Hum Day

/> value="true" />

I’ve been feeling rather blah all week because the weather in NYC has once again turned cloudy and breezy, and I’ve been waking at 3 a.m. each morning, unable to fall asleep again for at least an hour and a half. So as you can guess, I’ve been tired. That was until I saw this movie by Lula magazine and Topshop to celebrate the launch of the mag’s new site. Lula, with style guru Leith Clark at the helm, is described by Topshop as: “a dreamscape of beautiful imagery and inspiring fashion, topped off with some flowers and a cupcake.” Basically, if the Secret Garden were a real place, Lula is what the teenaged heroine would read. “Spell” also captures the feeling of the secret world we all have in our minds that can save us from a mundane and tiring day.

Check out some Lula-approved Topshop items after jump, so you can own a little bit of the dreamscape too. Keep reading »

Etsy Offers “Office” Supplies Almost As Cute As Jim And Pam

Apparently, some folks over at Etsy are as big of fans of “The Office” as we are. (Did you see the season premiere on Thursday?) Case in point: we were cruising their site and came across this curated list of cute objects that each epitomize famous jokes from the show that never fails to crack us up. For example, there’s the infamous jello stapler episode and the note card above that illustrates that classic moment. Buy it here. For more gems check out the full roundup. Keep reading »

Yoko Ono’s Drawings And Texas-Sized Hair At Threeasfour

This Fashion Week we went backstage at a number of shows, and the makeup artists and hairstylists we spoke to were calm, cool, and welcoming even when there was only an hour or so before the models had to be dressed and ready to walk down the runway. The atmosphere backstage before Threeasfour, however, was a little different. Who knows what caused the storm — maybe the complicated makeup that required absolute precision to apply or the fact that celebrities were involved in the show — but it was tense back there. The lead makeup artist and hairstylist were wonderful once they were able to step away from their work to chat, but they had their hands full. Thirty minutes before the show was to begin, someone came back and announced that hair and makeup was to be complete “AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE” so the models could get into the clothes. And, just as I was leaving, I bumped into Sean Lennon, who was being interviewed and photographed like mad, adding another element of excitement to the scene. (I also thought I saw Yoko Ono, but now I’m pretty sure it was just a cute, middle-aged Asian woman.)

The reason for Sean Lennon and Yoko Ono’s presence was because Threeasfour designers Adi Gil, Angela Donhauser, and Gabriel Asfour were inspired by Yoko Ono’s dot drawings for the spring 2010 collection. Some of the drawings were turned into prints and used on elements of the collection. The dot theme extended to the makeup, too. Check it out, after the jump! Keep reading »

Celebrities Flocked To Ann Taylor’s (?) Fashion Show

Fashion Week isn’t just a time for crazy-expensive brands that are out of most people’s price ranges to show what they have coming down the pipeline. Besides the fine looks we saw from Snuggie, Ann Taylor also hosted a show, attended by important editors and celebrities, including Elle‘s Joe Zee, Vanessa Williams, Gretchen Mol, Mena Suvari, Amanda Bynes, Kelly Rutherford, and more.

The clothes shown weren’t what the retailer will be selling come spring 2010, like most shows. Instead, they were items that are available right now. While the whole thing was a marketing ploy to get more people interested in Ann Taylor clothes, it might have worked. Vanessa Williams admitted to being a fan of the dress she wore for the event, which fit her off the rack, and Katherine McPhee told WWD she loves their accessories.

Check out Ann Taylor’s newest arrivals, and tell us what you think! Keep reading »

    Etsy Find Of The Week: Joodito Clothing

    What joo lookin’ at, huh? Oh, my rad Joodito hoodie? Look away, my friend.

    Joodito, an Etsy seller specializing in creatively constructed clothes, describes its garments as “retro futurist,” and we couldn’t put it any better. Pieced together from raw textiles and scrap material, the dresses and tops play on vintage-y cowl neck shapes but go back to the future with asymmetrical lines and utilitarian colors. And unlike so many reconstructed and sustainable clothes out there that look like mad fashion experiments, Joodito pulls things together in an edgy-meets-elegant way.

    We’re loving on the Grandmaster Flash sleeveless hoodie with its black and navy angular patchwork, as well as the Sen Dog top, which pairs a huge space-like collar with a purple plaid bodice. [Etsy.com] Keep reading »
