Not to date ourselves or anything, but we really like this necklace of a cassette, made out of recycled records. You can also get a 45 rpm disc — remember those? Be green and retro, all at the same time. Matching earrings available as well but that might be a bit much. From Uncommon Goods.
Talk about crimes against fashion. But seriously, this could come in handy in a dangerous neighborhood.
This Fuzz Crime Scene scarf is acrylic and is almost 5 feet long. No charge for the looks you’ll get. From those crazy kids at Perpetual Kid.
Some of our favorite trends right now are those that rekindle a bygone era. Victor Osbourne chapeaus (created by Victor Osborne and Zachary Barnett) take their inspiration from traditional headwear and the decidedly streetwise vibe that pervades New York City. The result? A uniquely vintage-cool sensibility. Visit the duo’s open storefront in Brooklyn for fierce fedoras to set you apart from the crowds.
Drakkar and Eternity aren’t exactly fragrances you want to proudly display on your bathroom counter. Instead, reach for French architect Jean Nouvel’s bottle for L’Homme Yves Saint Laurent. The silhouette calls to mind, among other things, a laboratory test tube, which is fitting for a men’s fragrance that connotes pure physical chemistry with hints of bergamot, ginger and vetiver. A YSL monogram floats inside, putting the brand at the heart of the fragrance.

Nike designed this year a Dunk Hi for the Grammy Awards. The Dunk Hi comes with a white/black oestrich and leather upper and a gold glittery swoosh. The contrasting purple laces look good. Overall 1009 Dunk Hi’s have been made. The sneakers have been given out to the Grammy Award winners, but the good news are, that they will also hit retail.
The Nike “Grammy” Dunk Hi will be sold in extremely limited quantities at Fred Segal on Melrose in Los Angeles. They will be the only store to carry them. So far we do not have a specific sales date, but we’ll keep you posted. Via Highsnobiety.
UK brand Garbstore is about to open its first flagship store in London later this month. Here we have first pictures of the store, for now only of the basement, but it’s already looking really good.
In recent years we finally see some brands turning their back on the otherwise mostly Marketing driven fashion market. They return to their core principles of making good product.
More news on the soon to open Garbstore Flagship store London, once we get closer to the opening.
