Me So Seussy: Converse Does Dr. Seuss-Themed Kicks

There are a lot of reasons to wish you were a kid again. A few off the top of our heads: Nap time, no weird looks when you order a Happy Meal, the potential to become a virtuoso fashion blogger. Also—the awesome new kicks from Converse styled after Dr. Seuss books and characters. You’ll recognize the illustrated designs from some of your favorite childhood storybooks (it’s nice to know that some things never change, right?). There’s a “One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish” style, a “Thing 1, Thing 2″ pair, a Cat in the Hat design, and more. Yup, most of the sneakers are for kids, but a couple do fit grown-ups if you want to spend a day taking a walk in a kid’s shoes. [Converse via L.A. Times] Keep reading »

Gia Coppola And The Like Heart Zac Posen For Target

Eat, Pray, Buy?

Apparently, it’s not enough for a movie just to exist as it is. Each film has to be paired with items that are actually for sale, based on the movie, because, really, who doesn’t want a “Harry Potter” wand or “Lord of the Rings” elf ears? “Sex and the City” has thongs, Christmas decorations, and vodka, and now Los Angeles jewelry brand Dogeared has designed special jewelry, books and travel-related products based on the upcoming movie “Eat Pray Love.” If you’re ready to outfit yourself in “EPL” paraphernalia, head to Fred Segal or ABC Home where you can shop the collection, which has items ranging from $20 to $100. Just a note: you certainly won’t find happiness through food, spirituality through yoga, and balance by simply plunking down cash for Elizabeth Gilbert mementos. Then again, taking your own trip around the world can be a tad unattainable. [WWD]

Barbie Goes Hardcore

In her time, Barbie‘s had more than a few outfit changes. Most recently, the master of red soles — Christian Louboutin — outfitted the doll, but now it seems she’s going for a bit of a harder edge, thanks to Chrome Hearts. Say goodbye to Barbie the cookie-cutter teacher and hello to downtown rocker chick. The more alternative brand teamed up with Mattel to create a 12-piece collection of 3-foot-tall Barbies and completely transformed the iconic doll. Each girl has her own specialized name and outfit, which includes a leather jacket, knee-highs, Keds, and detailed accessories. That’s not all — Barbie even got a bit of special treatment for her locks, thanks to celebrity hairstylist Oribe. But these Barbies are no play thing for little girls; each one is said to be valued between $18,000 and $25,000, but you can visit them on display from April 10-24 at Roma Cohen’s Alchemist in Miami, followed by locations in New York City, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Tokyo, and Shanghai.

Prices range from $58-98, so prepare to shop at Urban Outfitters starting in mid-May. [Lucky] Keep reading »

It’s Nice When A Collaboration Doesn’t Suck

Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to be free of lame collaboration overload. Kristin Reiter and Valerie Killeen, aka Bleachblack, have joined forces with Urban Outfitters once again to bring us some super cool, highly covetable new rings that we could actually envision perched on our fingers. “The branch ring is modeled after my mother’s treasured faux-bois wedding ring from 1975,” Killeen states in the press release. What the hell is a faux-bois ring you ask? It’s French for “false wood.” (I knew a guy who had that once.) Pick these babies up at Urban later this month. Keep reading »

Levi’s & Opening Ceremony: Dull Product Shots, Better By Bubble

We had some high hopes for the Levi’s and Opening Ceremony collaboration. But preview shots are out, and we’re having some mixed feelings. Style.com posted some product images of the line—some corduroy cut-offs and button-downs, as well as a denim jacket—and we thought we were looking at pictures of Levi’s styles that have been around for ages. Wisely, the two companies also appealed to bloggers, sending Susie of Style Bubble the complete collection, and asking her to style it. She’s done a much better job with presenting the fashions, going monochromatic, or putting two bright colors together.

We’re still not sure, however, if the corduroy wares look better on Bubble because of the cool choices she paired them with, or if they’re worth it as stand-alone items. Check out some more pics after the jump. What do you think? [Style.com] Keep reading »

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.
