Do Not Want: Kill Yourself And Die Necklace

We did a double take upon seeing this necklace sold by Colette, which reads "Kill yourself and die." (It also comes with a piece of artwork with the same slogan.) If there's a reference to something here, we're missing it. If there's an artistic explanation, we're not seeing it in the product description. Either way,…

Colette + Timberland + Boat Shoes = WTF

Nice try: Colette teamed up with Timberland to make some fashion-y version of the outdoorsy boots in a boat shoe variety. We say: not so much. [Highsnobiety]…

Karl Lagerfeld, Coke Addict

Karl Lagerfeld teamed up with Coca-Cola to make a limited edition package to be sold at Colette, and not a thing about it surprises us. Naturally, he'd only elect to associate himself with Diet Coke, considering his no-fatties-allowed rules. And of course, he'd make the design an homage to himself. Can't say the man doesn't…

Keith Haring Foundation Kicks It With Tommy Hilfiger

Looks like the iconic urban street artist Keith Haring is experiencing a bit of a rad revival. Although Haring died of AIDS in 1990, his foundation lives on and has been bringing his works to life in new forms, first with SIGG water bottles and now with shoes, thanks to Tommy Hilfiger. Available at Colette,…

A More Fashionable Mt. Rushmore

If you're in Paris, um, now (Hi Leo!), you'll need to make a stop at Colette simply to check out their windows. Everyone knows Mt. Rushmore, featuring former presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. But Item Idem, aka Cyril Duval, a French fashion artist, decided to infuse a bit of style…

Check This Out: Les Néréides Necklaces

It's hard to embrace chic Parisian style without seeming cliche (hint: skip the beret and don't even go near that Eiffel Tower-print bag in the Louvre souvenir shop). That's why we love the necklaces from Les Néréides, which feature tiny Paris scenes on pendants. On the Café des Poètes necklace, you see a chic woma…

Barbie’s (Still) More Fashionable Than You Are

Barbie has lived a ton of lifestyles: airline stewardess, teacher and doctor, to name a few. But now she's become more of a fashionista than ever. Christian Louboutin already outfitted the doll with her very own red-soled shoes (even though he thinks her ankles are fat), and now Rei Kawakubo gave her designer duds. I…

A Little Piece Of Lanvin You Can Actually Afford

Lanvin is 120 years old! Started in 1889 by Jeanne Lanvin, a 22-year-old dressmaker, the boutique became accredited as a Parisian couture house in 1909, and has been on the fashion scene ever since. To celebrate the label's birthday, Alber Elbaz designed these cute limited-edition notebooks. The illustrations reference Lanvin's past with mother-daughter themes. (Lanvi…

Colette’s “Fresh Paper” Candle: Highbrow Or Silly?

Sometimes these artsy-fartsy designer collaborations are deceptive: High prices aside, your instincts tell you that the appreciation for the product is more about the concept; and if it's not something artistic, then it's something ridiculous meant to rile up excitement. Then, there are these special edition products that walk a fine line between highbrow desig…

Bizarre Fashion Trend: Rubber Boots And Criss-Crosses

Once we discovered Fashematics, the blog that shows where fashion comes from through equations, we began to see the logic behind it everywhere in our style research, as in, "Huh, funny, that dress kind of looks like an apple and Jerry Seinfeld at the same time!" Today's find: Givenchy rainboots + Anzevino & Florence tie

Jason Wu Dolls Just As Chic As Their Runway Counterparts

Returning to his couture doll clothing roots, fashion darling Jason Wu has designed a doll and clothed it in one of his Fall '09 runway looks. Reminiscent of Barbie way back before she became so fond of hot pink and boobs, this bleached blond little number is a classy alternative to those slutty Bratz dolls.

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy Unhappy With Purse Featuring Her Naked

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy is none too pleased that clothing maker Pardon is using a nude photo of her on a tote bag without her consent, and she's seeking $167,000 in damages, which, if she wins her claim, would be donated to charity. The bag features a silk-screened version of a 1993 photograph taken during Bruni-Sarkozy's modeling…
