Gallery: Man Repeller And DANNIJO Made Some Nice Jewelry Together

I’ve admired Man Repeller (a.k.a. Leandra Medine) for quite some time. Her blog contains a daring version of fashion that’s often inspired by menswear, and while it’s not generally a look I’m advanced enough to pull off, I like watching other people do it. Recently, Medine tried her hand at designing jewelry in collaboration with her friends at DANNIJO, and the resulting line, MR. DANNIJO (get it?) is pretty nifty.

Poll: Should Cynthia Rowley Make Harmonicas?

If I had a super power, I’d want it to be fearlessness. Why waste your time reading other people’s minds or hiding yourself with invisibility powers when you could do anything you wanted and not be afraid? No more being afraid of monsters in your closet or that you’re going to fall down the escalator head first or that everyone saw your underwear when your skirt blew up in the wind. But while superheroes still have fears (Superman and kryptonite, hello!), Cynthia Rowley does not and she makes sure people aren’t afraid to wear her clothes, either. She makes feminine and sophisticated clothing with a “tough-girl” edge without making people feel stupid. She put holes all over half her Spring 2011 collection for goodness sake and yet, people will still go out there and buy a hole-y dress from her. But of all her pieces from this year’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, Rowley did happen to be afraid of one thing: that her geometric necklaces would look like harmonicas. More »
