Clearly a fan of the odd collaborations of late, Comme des Garconnes is now teaming up with Apple Corps Ltd. (the dudes who manage The Beatles’ legacy) to put out a line of Beatles-inspired Comme des Garconnes bags. No images are out yet, but the collection debuts in London in November, then in Tokyo before distribution opens up. We’re hoping and assuming the sure-to-be-interesting bags will make their way overseas and into our closets. These have serious collector’s item written all over them. But not literally, we hope.

George Harrison loved to garden — the dedication in his autobiography I Me Mine reads, “To All Gardeners Everywhere.” And at the Chelsea Flower Show in London, his widow, Olivia, is honoring his memory with a garden. The first part of the garden shows George’s birthplace in Liverpool, the second symbolizes the Sgt. Pepper days with brightly colored flowers, and the third area is more subdued and represents the period of time after Beatlemania passed and George became more spiritual. Before George died of lung cancer in 2001, he and Olivia would go to the flower show every year, and George would take notes on the plants he liked. “I really cannot think of a more joyful thing to do for George and I know he would approve,” Olivia said. “I do feel close to him in the garden.” [Reuters] Keep reading »

Have you ever dreamed that you slept with your father? Or rode a mechanical bull while a coworker watched? We have and were disturbed for months. Fortunately, dreams don’t always mean what you think they do, and having sex with your father is nothing to worry about, so long as it only happens in your subconscious. Here, we ask psychologist Veronica Tonay, Ph.D. to decode your crazy dreams each and every week, so that you can sleep at night, and dream some more.
THE DREAM IN QUESTION: I never had fantasy dreams when I was single, but now that I’m committed to one person, I have them all the time. I once dreamed that I met present-day Paul McCartney, my favorite Beatle, at a Stella McCartney fashion show. We had sex in an abandoned, pink Spanish-style house with no windows that was covered in ivy. Then, we moved it to the roof of his silver Mercedes, which was parked outside under a big tree. — Kickin’ It With Macca Keep reading »
