Threadless And Dell Team Up To Make Crazy Cool Computers

Threadless, the Chicago-based brand that’s gained a cult following for their crowd-sourced graphic tees, is teaming up with Dell computers to produce a line of laptops featuring Threadless designs. The company has more than 80,000 designs in their archives with new ones submitted by the dozens daily. The initial run will feature 11 different design options, but the choices will be updated based on user votes two to four times a year. Sorry, HP and Vivienne Tam, but Threadless has your fancy netbooks beat. [Lookbooks] Keep reading »

Check Out Nike’s N98 Muse Collection

Nike has paired up with six young, new London designers, asking them to tear apart the classic N98 jacket and remodel it with specific athletes in mind. Designers like Katie Eary took athlete muses like sprinter Martyn Rooney and customized the jackets to emulate their style. Eary’s concoction was a classic N98 shape with an intense snake print superimposed over it. We like, but it’s also just a touch terrifying on Rooney, who could easily break us with two fingers. Other options were a bit less intense, like Felder Felder’s pretty/cool ruched jacket for sprinter Ashlee Nelson (left). Check out the rest of the collection, which will be on display in London at the end of July, here. [Vogue UK] Keep reading »

Joss Stone Should Stick To Singing

Joss Stone is good at a lot of things, like singing and getting tattoos. Wanna know what she’s not so good at? Designing shoes. As evidence to support this claim, we present early images of Stone’s shoe collaboration with Nine West. Part of the brand’s American Vintage Collection, the kicks are allegedly inspired by the American countryside with, according to Joss, a little help from her own tattoos (look closely and you can sort of make out the “tattoos” on the shoes themselves). Perhaps these shoes really are American Vintage-looking and we just don’t get it, but we can’t help but feel they’re less suited for use by humans and more appropriate for a rather skanky yeti. Because, really, in what other world do thigh-high, faux-shearling boots with braided rope and tattoo detailing make sense? [The Cut] Keep reading »

Eley Kishimoto For Anthropologie Looks Like Maternity Wear

We love an Anthropologie designer collaboration as much as the next girl, but the newly released Eley Kishimoto collection is a dud. Cheaper fabrics don’t seem to do justice to Eley Kishimoto’s usually cute prints and shapes, and all the clothes veer pretty intensely towards maternity wear. The line is available in the U.K. and a handful of U.S. outposts right now. That said, you’re not missing much. Click through for a look at the lackluster options. [Fashionista] Keep reading »

Kim Kardashian Adds “Jewelry Designer” To Her Resume

Apparently, Bebe loves Kim Kardashian so much, they’ve asked her to return to their design team. This time, instead of creating tight outfits and dresses with hoods, she’s entering the world of accessories. Kim’s collaborating with jeweler Pascal Mouawad on costume jewelry, including a capsule collection for Bebe, meaning that her line will actually have a bit of legit designer influence (he’s worked on jewelry collections with Heidi Klum, Nicole Richie, Erin Wasson, and others). Kim and Pascal’s designs fall into three different styles: 1930s-inspired Lucite and gunmetal, 1960s-inspired geometric resin and enamel, and Moroccan-inspired designs. Though the first two categories sound classy and ideal for cheap costume jewelry, we’re slightly concerned about the Moroccan selections. As Kim describes it, the jewelry is perfect for dressier holiday outfits and rumors say the line includes belly chains — I guess her Christmas dinner with grandma is a bit different than ours. Kim’s jewelry designs for Bebe will retail for $25 to $250, hitting stores toward the end of this year. But she’s not done yet! Kim’s said she aspires to bring her makeup experience to the beauty world, so watch out for eyeliners and lip glosses from the reality star. [WWD] Keep reading »

I Survived The Cynthia Vincent For Target Debut

I’m not really one to wait in line for hours in the hopes of spending money on so-and-so’s designer collaboration. One, I don’t really enjoy owning something that thousands of other women own too. Two, why should I wait in line to spend my money? Three, the construction of most designer/retail chain items is really shoddy. But the minute I laid my eyes on the Cynthia Vincent for Target gladiator wedges, I knew they would be mine. Oh yes, I just had to have them! Keep reading »
