Apparently, Men’s Sample Sizes Run Teeny-Tiny, Too

Most designer clothing for women is sized ridiculously small (we’re looking at you, Alexander Wang), and the sample sizes that dress the models on the runway can be even more petite. It hadn’t really occurred to us that the same extreme proportions would apply to male models until New York magazine revealed that the Olympic…

Costco, A Fashionista’s Dream Shopping Destination?

Costco used to be the ultimate shopping mecca for people who like to stock up on toilet paper, meat, and socks in bulk. But pretty soon the ladies-who-lunch crowd could become the giant retailer’s best customers, now that the cat is out of the Chanel bag. You see, the Costco store in East Harlem, which…

Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread, And Make Sure It’s Fresh From Chanel

There’s a new online fashion magazine out there called Flamboyant, and its debut issue presents this “artistic” spread of designer-inspired loaves of bread. In the mix are carb-loaded replicas modeled after brands like Hermès, Valentino, and Vivienne Westwood. Normally, we squeal girlishly (um, you know, on the inside) at these types of conceptual fashion/food photographs.

Quick Pic: “Labels Mean Nothing To Me”

Do they sell paint like this at Sherwin-Williams? Cause if not, we don’t even want to imagine the time, energy and technique it took to paint the Louis Vuitton logo all over this house in Mexico. But if you have a passion for fashion, guess no task is too great. [Freshome]…

Louis Vuitton Solves All Of Your Intergalactic Packing Woes

This creation makes us question which planet Louis Vuitton is living on. (Oh right … France.) It’s a space-egg-suitcase-contraption that contains all the necessities for your next trip to Mars and yes, as in the one in outer space. From the illustration, we gather that the essentials for the LV lifestyle include a lounge chair…

Madonna Dons Bunny Ears For Louis Vuitton

A photo from Madonna’s second Louis Vuitton ad campaign was leaked, and — surprise, surprise! — it features Madge wearing a pair of the bunny ears she rocked at last month’s Met Ball. Luckily, they look a lot less crazy in the campaign than they did in real life — some fashion just doesn’t translate…

Why Will People Keep Buying Chanel and Vuitton In A Recession?

Apparently Topshop, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Forever 21 aren’t doing too badly in the recession, even as their peers are experiencing millions of dollars in losses. A WWD survey of a 100 luxury industry experts came up with those four brands as the most likely to succeed in this economy and, as you can see,…

Louis Vuitton Chooses Famous Astronauts Instead Of Celebs For New Ad

Ads for luxury brand Louis Vuitton generally feature the rich and fabulous, i.e., Madonna, Sean Connery, Sofia Coppola, and Sean Connery. But the latest installment in the company’s Core Values series, shot by Annie Liebovitz, features lesser-known faces whose names we learned in elementary school history lessons. The ad pictures Sally Ride (the first America…

Madonna Rocks Out With Her Crotch Out, Gets Booed

In an article entitled “Put It Away Madonna!” UK newspaper, The Daily Mail, boldly stated that they think Madge is too old to flash her vadge. Excuse me, the Material Girl damn near invented crotch shots! And the now 50-year-old looks super sexy in the new Louis Vuitton ads in which she’s sprawled out i…

Madonna To Be Face of Spring/Summer Louis Vuitton

A 50-year-old Madonna will be the new face of luxury brand’s Louis Vuitton’s spring/summer 2009 collection. The idea to use Madonna came to Marc Jacobs, the label’s creative director, while watching her concert in Paris last year. “I just blurted out, ‘I think we should do Madonna,'” he said. “I was totally just blown away…

Wearable Food Gets An Upgrade

Before today, I thought Ring Pops were the height of glamour in food that you can wear; I was very wrong. Designer Nancy Wu took sheets of beef jerky and sewed them together to create what appear to be a classic Chanel quilted handbag and a Louis Vuitton wallet. Doesn’t the bag look like a…

Sofia Coppola: Daddy’s Girl

The mark of a good dad is his kids, and when you’re Francis Ford Coppola, director of The Godfather trilogy, Apocalypse Now, and our personal favorite, the Michael Jackson Disney World 3D experience, Captain EO, you’ve already set the bar pretty darn high for your children. But if there’s a woman awesome enough to fill…

Bartering With Sex

Sex is all about give and take. A study at the University of Michigan School of Public Health found that even though 475 U of M undergrads didn’t need to use sex to get provisions (that’s what parents’ bank accounts are for), many did use it to get other things — help with Econ 302,…

Spring Trend We Can Get Behind: Full Skirts

There’s one thing Donna Karan, Louis Vuitton, Christian LaCroix, and Alexander McQueen agree on for spring: fabulous full skirts. While high-waisted jeans may still cause us to cringe at the mom factor, high-waisted skirts can make any woman look like a pin-up girl. Since the feminine silhouette of the skirt naturally blossoms at the bottom,…
