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, Hilfiger uses Haring’s exuberant designs to decorate women’s, men’s, and kids’ sneakers, as well as rain boots. Although these styles are pretty specific to a certain fashion taste, we’re loving this collaboration for bringing together two different facets of Americana—Hilfiger’s traditionalism and Haring’s urban punch.

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 into the monstrous construction. He created an LED display called Mt. Blushmore, replacing the heads of state with notable fashion figures Anna Wintour, Karl Lagerfeld, Donatella Versace, and John Galliano. And now, Colette decided to honor the artist with his own window exhibit, meaning the busts of fashion greats are on display and available for all to see. It’s fashion meets politics in the most perfectly cheeky way. [Sassybella] Keep reading »

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 woman in front of a typical metro stop. The Scooter style shows a classy girl on a Vespa. And while the signature Eiffel Tower design does have France’s famous landmark worked in, it somehow manages to come off as completely … how you say … sophistiqué. [Colette.fr] Keep reading »

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 have to admit, I’m slightly jealous of this doll. First Louboutin, now Comme des Garçons? The creation, part of the design house’s Jingle Flowers floral pattern, sold out immediately last week in Tokyo, but it’s arriving later this week at Comme des Garçons stores, and London’s Dover Street Market. Barbie by Rei is not a steal — she’ll cost collectors about $368. Not exactly a toy for little girls. Still, even though some of us feel like this whole Barbie-meets-fashion-designer trend needs to end, you have to admit, this creation is pretty gorgeous, no? [Colette] Keep reading »

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. (Lanvin started out designing clothing for her daughter.)

At less than $20 per notebook, it might be the only thing we’d ever be able to afford at chez Lanvin! [Colette.fr] Keep reading »
