Do You Practice Man Repelling?

We’ve heard about “dressing for boys” vs. “dressing for girls,” but “man repelling” is an altogether new concept for us (although once you hear the definition you may identify). Leandra Medine runs a fashion blog dedicated to the art, and defines it as the act of “outfitting oneself in a sartorially offensive way that will result in repelling members of the opposite sex. Such garments include but are not limited to harem pants, boyfriend jeans, overalls (see: human repelling), shoulder pads, full length jumpsuits, jewelry that resembles violent weaponry and clogs.” Keep reading »

H&M Releases Cryptic Videos To Promote New Designer Collabs—Can You Guess Who This Is?


Here’s what we call smart marketing—H&M has announced that it’s getting back into the designer collaboration game … but they won’t say with whom! Yesterday, the company posted two videos to YouTube, each a 20-second interview which avoided revealing the designer’s face. Guesses based on gender, accent, and personal style for these first two so far: Thomas Maier, and possibly Carolina Herrera. (H&M will reveal the answers on September 9.)

There are two new videos up now. The first gives us what should be telling hints—manicured nails and Geisha-like hair style. Except now we’re not sure this designer is Asian because of the misleading accent (we at first thought Vivienne Tam), and after listening a few times, we’re not even sure it’s a woman!

While Sherman has been known to channel stereotyped glamour, she also goes for the grotesque, yet her photos for Pop are a hilarious balance of the two. While she dresses up in high-fashion, her poses communicate disgust. Keep reading »

Elite French Grad School Students Release Cool, Erotic Mag

Who better to launch a magazine on sex and erotica than the French? Even better: French students from Sciences Po, one of Paris’ most elite grad schools and a training ground for lawmakers, politicians, and journalists. L’Imparfaite is an artsy consideration of sex, compiling photography and odd-ball articles, like a study on the sex life of comic book writer Alan Moore and a sexual history of pissotières (urinals—does it make us complete geeks that we are really, really interested in this?).
