HermĂ¨s insists it “can be used for play”–and thank fucking god for that. Who’d want a branded blue basketball museum piece?
…Well, the sort of person who’d want a Chanel surfboard, probably, or a Louis Vuitton soccer ball or an Alexander Wang jump rope. Which all exist, obviously–and there’s more in the gallery ahead. More
He won’t be gluing any pills on anything this time. More
While they are pretty much universally agreed upon to be exploitative, classist bullshit, unpaid internships are a sad fact of the fashion industry. (And other industries, but I won’t get into that now.) If you want any hope of ever getting paid, you have to work for free first. A lot. But believe it or not, some countries actually enforce their labor laws where unpaid internships are concerned, and this landed the Alexander McQueen brand in a bit of hot English water recently.

Not content to retire with a truck full of money, Jimmy Choo co-founder Tamara Mellon is launching a new line that includes a leopard-print pony fur coat. More
Yesterday, word broke that serial modelizer Adam Levine had reunited with his on-again, off-again girlfriend, Victoria’s SecretÂ angel Behati Prinsloo. Not only that, they reunited via an engagement.
Though Prinsloo is well known in fashion circles, she may be a new face to those of us who don’t keep a mental backlog of every Prada exclusive of the last 20 years. More
Underlying notes of racism are all over the place in high fashion, but few recent stories have been quite as blatantly awful and outright disgusting as the alleged behavior of saleswomen in anÂ Alexander McQueen store toward an African employee.
Forgive me, but I am more than a little livid. More
Earlier in the week,Â Maggie Gyllenhaal, a person whose name we will never learn to spell*, dropped by the premiere of White House Down wearing the bad peplum to end all bad peplums (well, exceptingÂ Kim Kardashian‘s maternity peplum pants; those were worse). The dress was Christian Dior, the peplum was knitted and floppy. While we loved the dress’ bodice, the whole look… was not good.
But! The actress redeemed herself in spades last night at the Gotham Magazine party celebrating her summer cover. More
Isabella Blow’s legendary collection will be displayed in London. More
Seriously, Sandra Lee’s Vivienne Westwood dress was eaten by a cockatoo. More
Also: why do peep toe boots exist? More
From the beginning, I’ve been pretty obsessed with fashion… More
The fashion industry is historically pretty fond of wearing dead animals. Despite its legacy as a luxury material,Â however, designers tend to obscure the origin of their fur–few people like being reminded of all the suffering and sinew that goes into a pricey coat.
Conceptional artist Jess Eaton wants to address the gap between dead animals that are socially acceptable to wear and those that are not–so she made a bunch of really pretty dresses out of straight-up roadkill. More
Last night, we reacted to the Golden Globes red carpet. This morning, we picked up the pieces.
Predictably, there wasn’t much to like on the red carpet and there was even less to remember. Luckily, the fashion disasters came fast and furious: Halle Berry showed her midriff, Alyssa Milano went to prom, and Jennifer Lopez really wanted you to think about her naked. More
So it’s year end wrap-up time and this time we need to be really frank: 2012 wasn’t exactly a banner year for red carpet dressing. More
