The fashion world is once again spreading rumors that Karl Lagerfeld will retire from Chanel. Why do people care and why does this rumor resurface so often? Because it’s Chanel. And where do you go when you’re already at the top? Since Karl is famous for topping himself year after year with his larger-than-life fashion show productions, the world is waiting for the day he quits—just to see what he’ll do next.
Anyhow. Uncle K hasn’t announced his retirement yet, but he has just taken on an incredible project: designing an island. (An entire island?!) He’s been recruited by an architecture firm and hotel group to create his own little Lagerfeld Land on the man-made Isla Moda off the coast of Dubai. The resort retreat will be made of “luxury hotels, residential villas, spas, lounges and of course, shopping.” Can we go to there? [Hint Mag] Keep reading »
Isabel Marant’s Spring Summer 2011 had one piece that i absolutely loved – a mesh overlay skirt. This is actually something that could be infinitely DIY’d with about a yard of mesh fabric and a body con skirt; however, if you have no interest in making your own, Cheap Monday has come out with a fantastic take on the style. Compaired with a starting price point of $650 for a skirt by Isabel Marant, $47 is a steal. Cheap Monday, Asos, $47 Keep reading »
Freezers are good for many things: preserving food, chilling vodka, storing body parts, and, apparently, cleaning denim. Seriously: sticking your jeans in the freezer for a few days will kill bacteria and alleviate odors while avoiding significant shrinkage (George Costanza would be proud). Stains can’t be frozen out, but this is an interesting technique nonetheless.
I wash my jeans after every wear because I’m kind of a fanatic about squeaky clean jeans, but I might have to give this method a try just out of curiosity. How about you — how do you usually wash your jeans, and how often? [via Crushable]
It didn’t occur to me until I saw this article on how makeup artist Gucci Westman (um, seriously?) turned a naked Kim Kardashian silver that the bravest among us females may be rocking this look come Halloween. So, how’d they turn Kim into the platinum version of Goldfinger? “I wanted it to look like Kim was dipped in silver, like she was liquid,” the artist said of her shellacking plan. All it took was some Kryolan Aquacolor silver body paint, Make Up For Ever silver powder, and a tablespoon of pigment in the Kryolan. Don’t have any of those ingredients handy? You can find them at Make Up For Ever. Of course, if you’re planning on leaving the house, you might also want to don a silver thong or panties and a silver bra or pasties. Boobs and booty not included. [W]
