Ride like the wind and look cool doing it with these ancient Greek-inspired bicycle clips. We’re completely obsessed with bikes (or chariots, whatever) these days, and wouldn’t even consider wearing those dorky garters for your pants until we saw this swifty pair designed by Gijs Bakker. An Amsterdammer who clearly knows a thing or two… READ MORE »

Even though model Sara Ziff has walked for Chanel and Marc Jacobs and has been the face of Calvin Klein, Gap, Stella McCartney and Dolce & Gabbana, she strips the modeling industry of its glamour like she’s ripping off false eyelashes. Mentorship from Twiggy? Coddling from Miss Jay?

Actually, the life… READ MORE »

Talk about Grade-A ass, Oxford students posed nude for a charity calendar benefiting TravelAid, an organization that works to eradicate third-world hunger. The $15 calendar features coeds on the grounds of the venerable institution, studying in the library, rowing, and playing the cello—sans clothing.

Though some alumni were peeved by the bawdiness of… READ MORE »

I can’t, for the life of me, figure out why someone decided to design these shoes. From what I gather, they were created in Russia for the manliest of men. I bet any man caught wearing these would have a hard time getting his manness off (if you know what I mean). [Imelda via FashionREAD MORE »

Most of us gave up our prima ballerina dreams right around plié. We’re starting to think we should have stuck with things, because apparently the payoff can include dancing your heart out in Chanel’s couture atélier. The lucky ballerina who got to do it was Elena Glurdjidze, a member of the English National Ballet, who… READ MORE »

In a beauty world where you can change the color of your hair, the size of your breasts, and even the length of your nose, why should those with earlobes that chafe their shoulders have to suffer? Well they don’t anymore with my latest beauty find: The Neck Stretcher. … READ MORE »

Victorinox, purveyors of Swiss Army knives and all manners of utilitarian items, is no longer content with being confined to outdoorsy devices. They’ve moved into the scent market with the recent release of Swiss Unlimited, an eau de toilette that smells like “Swiss essence with notes of wooded silver fir, alpine herbs, and absinthe.” So… READ MORE »

The HanaHana Nose Stretcher is not for the beauty faint of heart. I always thought that Brazilian bikini waxes and Botox were marks of the beauty brave, but there needs to be a whole new category for those who try the HanaHana Nose Stretcher. This Japanese nose stretcher (does anyone else think this sounds like… READ MORE »

Days of the week underwear is a wonderful fashion concept—if you’re going to have one of something you love, why not have seven? Enter the Ring a Day, which are stainless steel sheets (almost stencil-like) that come with seven with pre-cut rings of different shapes to pop out and wear for a week. Once removed… READ MORE »

As someone who has at least a surface interest in interior design, I feel pretty strongly that a person’s possessions and home decor ought to say something about him or her. I, for example, have a ton of Asian crap around my apartment, like silkscreens, fans, woodwork and other knick-knacks, not because I’m Asian, but… READ MORE »

“To me, to pick the right blouse with the right sensibility feels in some ways like art. I’m an artist, but I’m painting with clothes.”That’s totally the sort of obtuse thing Karl Lagerfeld would say, but it’s actually a quote from Eric Daman, the costume designer for “Gossip Girl.” Good, because we’d expect nothing less… READ MORE »

Ruh-roh, looks like someone is giving Kanye a run for his money with these uber-loud specs. The man behind the frames is StevieBoi. Do you know who StevieBoi is? We didn’t either until just now, but apparently he’s kind of a big deal. He’s hoping these low-visibility sunglasses become all the rage in clubwear. Take… READ MORE »
