Lo and behold! Relentlessly weird and always goth-y designer Gareth Pugh has jewelry in his arsenal, and this Scythe ring looks as if it could really do some damage — if that’s what you’re looking for in a weapon-ring. Forget brass knuckles! This season, it’s all about the finger scythe. If you’re not clear on the concept, a real scythe is a gardening tool that has a long, curved blade on the end of a wooden handle. If you were standing in high grasses, you could swing your scythe and whack down the foliage. The Pugh scythe is hand-sized and has a (looks like) leather-bound metal handle. The curved part fits between your fingers. It seems a bit … awkward, no? But also cool. Only $137.

Your iPhone just became cooler than you are.
Thanks to AnOther magazine, Gareth Pugh, and Incase, now not only your 3G phone but also your 13” MacBook can be swathed in designer products. Because obviously your Apple products need some fashion love, too. The laptop holder is made from thick PVC, with quilted satin inside. It retails for 76 pounds, which is basically $121; the iPhone case, however, is slightly more affordable at 53 pounds or about $84. Up to you whether your device has been good enough to deserve designer goods.
Head over to shop.anothermag.com this weekend, or if you’re one of the lucky few at Paris Fashion Week, then make sure to stop at Colette to pick up your iPhone’s first Pugh. [Fashionista]

It’s fun to look at men’s fashion show photos, if only to look at the models and their taut bodies. But the guys walking at Gareth Pugh, John Galliano, and Alexander McQueen didn’t look hot. No, they looked scary. In fact, they looked a lot like zombies. Could this be a pop culture trend in the making? Are zombies going to become the new vampires? One pop culture seems to think so. Or maybe the models are just depressed about the grim state of the economy. [NY Mag] Keep reading »
At last night’s MTV Europe Music Awards in Liverpool, U.K., Beyonce’s alter-ego, Sasha Fierce, performed her song “If I Were A Boy” in a Gareth Pugh dress. Look closely, and you’ll notice that her left hand has some sort of robotic-looking metal covering on it. [I once saw a porn where the chick was wearing something very similar on her hand and it seemed kind of dangerous. -- Editor] While I certainly have no place to wear an outfit like this, it seems rather appropriate for an MTV awards show, and the dress is actually quite flattering on Beyonce’s curvy figure. I don’t think the outfit went well with the performance though. The song is slow and ballad-like, and when she stepped onstage wearing this futuristic ensemble, I was expecting a crazy techno version of it. Watch the video of her performance after the jump… Keep reading »
