Spend The Day Chillaxing On An Artsy Beach Blanket

Here at The Frisky, we’ve talked wearable towels, Gucci towels and recession-defying $500 towels, but here’s another sort of absorbent fabric type to add to the list: Artware Editions has just introduced their 2009 Artist Towel Series. It features three-ply designs from some pretty big-deal artists like Ed Ruscha, Karen Kilimnick, Raymond Pettibon and Julian Schnabel. (Last year the round-up included Jeff Koons (check it, above) and Elizabeth Peyton.) You should also know that these are massive towels. Seriously, you could throw one of these bad boys down on the sand and fit at least two healthy-sized adults on there. And while drying off doesn’t come cheap (they run $95 each), I guess they’re a bit more accessible than say, buying a Koons sculpture at auction prices. [Artware Editions] Keep reading »

DIY: The Best Chanel Purse Knockoff Ever

Certain areas of NYC, like Canal Street and any street corner where a sheet can be unfurled and then snatched up quickly , are dedicated to selling knockoff designer wares. But there’s an even cheaper way to get a “designer” purse — all you need is a steady hand, a brown paper bag, a Sharpee, and a thin link chain. That’s how the above Chanel-inspired handbag was created. What makes this tongue-in-cheek knockoff even better is that the Double Cs logo isn’t perfect — so there, Karl Lagerfeld! Now if only someone would tell me how to create a DIY Hermes Birkin and my accessories closet could be complete. [Jak & Jil via Fashion Copious] Keep reading »

Chloe Sevigny, Stylish Even Whilst Skateboarding

Chloe Sevigny (alongside various NYC hipsters) stars and skates in the video for “Any Fun” by Jason Schwartzman’s musical outlet, Coconut Records. You might remember that Chloe used to hang out in New York City’s Washington Square Park with skater kids after lying to her parents about her whereabouts. Well, apparently she learned a few tricks when she was skipping school. Chloe’s no stranger to music videos, either, having starred in Sonic Youth’s “Sugar Kane” video in the ’90s. Since she’s such a trendsetter, maybe we’ll all start wearing Mexican Baja hoodies in a few months. Or not. We still haven’t gotten on her whole socks with sandals bandwagon. Keep reading »

Are You Down With Cosabella’s New Girdle-Thong?

Cosabella, maker of lacy thongs and responsible party for that rampant butt-cleavage trend that helps show them off, has come out with a new type of butt-floss that is decidedly less sexy: The “smooth thong” features a tummy-tucking girdle that comes up to your bellybutton. The first “novelty shapewear thong,” the garment aims to eliminate panty lines and stomach bulges while wearing body-skimming clothes. Apparently, Cosabella is marketing the product to college women as a solution to the Freshman 15. Yeah, we know. Keep reading »

Agyness Deyn: Dim-Witted Or A Publicity Genius?

Today’s New York Times Style section covers the rise and possible bail out of It Girl fashion model Agyness Deyn. Will she pursue acting? Singing? Will she leave modeling altogether? Well, you won’t get any straight (or even vaguely specific) answers from her, not even on the more benign questions. (It seems she’s gone to the Kelly Bensimon school of question answering—talk in circles about unrelated topics and hope the interviewer doesn’t notice!) But, as the NYT reporter suggests, does she actually have nothing going on upstairs, or is it just a way to fend off a line of questioning, remain elusive and thus intriguing to most everyone? You decide. Some Agy gems, after the jump! Keep reading »

Juicy Couture Rolls Out Pink Keyboard For Ladies (If You Couldn’t Already Guess)

Juicy Couture has come out with this flexible bubblegum pink keyboard that says, “Computers are for girls, too!” Groan. As if trying in some shallow attempt to prove that women can be fashionistas (hate that word) and smart too, the upper right hand corner advertises the slogan, “Juicy Genius.” This, however, is easily negated by the space bar’s vapid command, “Choose Juicy.”

Hey, if you’re still wearing your Juicy tracksuit circa 2003, here’s at least something you can roll up to put in its pocket, right? [$45, Nordstrom.com] Keep reading »

Crave: Christopher Kane Gorilla Shirts

I don’t know what all the fuss is about when it comes to these ugly/sexy Christopher Kane gorilla shirts/dresses, but I love them. It makes as much sense as why people enjoy sitting in the rain or feel the need to eat Oreos with peanut butter. Celebs from Rihanna to our Sea of Shoes girl have been sporting them out on the town. (If anyone wants to time warp with me you’ll remember that indie fave Kristen Stewart even sported a gorilla dress on the march edition of Nylon.) Let’s investigate, shall we? Keep reading »

It’s My Wedding Day And I’ll Sue If I Want To

Wedding planning ’tis always a bit of a hassle. Despite hours upon hours of meticulous planning something is bound to go wrong. Grandma gets drunk, the ring boy swallows the wedding band, the maid of honor locks herself in the bathroom crying about how she looks like a fat cow and won’t come out. There are so many tiny details which will inevitably get screwed up, but the hair and makeup is usually a pretty straightforward process. Not so for bride Shivani on her wedding day. It was almost lights, camera, action time when Shivani and her sister skedaddled over to the Cleopatra Day Spa Beauty and Slimming beauty parlor for their pre-arranged 3:30 appointment. That’s when disaster struck.

Bedazzled Bathing Suits To Bling Out Your Next Beach Day

Sparkles, sequins, and studs — oh my! If you’re not built like Alessandra Ambrosio like I am (ha! I’m definitely kidding), finding the perfect swimsuit can be a task similar to finding a needle in a haystack… so you might as well make sure that the one suit you finally settle on is killer! Of course, confidence is the only thing you really need to get heads turning and all eyes on you as you strut your stuff on the sand, but let’s face it — sparkly embellishments adorning your scantily-clad bod definitely helps! Forget your basic black bandeau and opt for a tribal-inspired stone-studded bikini from Victoria’s Secret, or even a wallet-friendly Charlotte Russe rhinestone monokini for added coverage with maximum sex appeal. We may be well into summer by now, but it’s certainly not too late to add some shimmer to your swim style. Continue reading Keep reading »

Is Fashion Art? (Margiela Couture Makes Us Wonder)

LA Times blogger Elizabeth Snead has a bone to pick with Maison Martin Margiela’s couturiers. She writes:

“The oceans are dying, children are suffering around the world, the ozone is disappearing, and the polar ice caps are melting, and this is the best idea you can come with up for us to wear in a few months? Is it any wonder no one takes high fashion designers’ suggestions to heart anymore?”

Okay, it’s kind of funny and true (in a sad way), but at the same time, this brings us back around to the age old question: When it comes to fashion, and more specifically, to the meticulously crafted works we see during couture week, should we consider it art or, um, just really unwearable clothes? Let’s discuss! Keep reading »
