Necky: The neck Snuggie. Please, no.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Wearables, Videos,

Please, someone explain to me why you’d need a Necky, because I am just not seeing it. What is wrong with the regular clothes that we already have, and have used for generations? Why do you need a chestplate that is fashioned out of cheap cloth to stay warm in the winter? Huh?? Answer me!! It’s a scarf, not a freaking bow tie. Learn how to wear one, Necky enthusiasts!

Quote of the Day: Robert Pattinson on His No-So-Fresh Style

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Movies, Clothing, Style,

Robert Pattinson

“Yeah, kind of. Like these jeans are a few days old, but the top is probably fresh because it gets to the point where even I can’t stand the air around me. I don’t know, my personal hygiene – it’s so disgusting! Really it’s just that I have very few clothes that I like and I’m travelling all the time, so I can’t really get any more.”

-New Moon‘s admitting to his infrequent clothing changes.

Gossip Girl Wardrobe Costs $19 Million

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, News, Rumors, Men, Women,

Gossip Girls Blake Lively and Leighton MeesterThe Gossip Girl wardrobe is worth an estimated $19 million.

The hit TV show, which follows a group of wealthy New York teenagers, is famed for its designer clothes, bags, jewelery, shoes and other accessories. Each episode of the series, which stars Leighton Meester and Blake Lively, features a string of exclusive outfits, which are stored in an impressive wardrobe spanning 1,500 sq ft and five floors.

Chace Crawford, who plays Nate Archibald on the show, said, “The girls disappear into that wardrobe for hours. They are like kids in a candy store! In fact, I always ask them not to schedule my fittings after Blake’s, because she always makes me late for my next scene. I tell them they have to get her enough Disneyland time.”

Costume designer Eric Daman has revealed it is a lengthy process trying to decide which pieces are featured on the show: “We average five to six looks per character—a total of 80 outfits per episode. And you have to go through 500 to get to that 80.”

Chace insists most of the wardrobe space is occupied by outfits for the leading female characters: “I have five pairs of shoes in a large box. They have clothes spread over five stories!”


Michael Fassbender Loves Leather Speedos

Michael Fassbender in 300

300 hunk Michael Fassbender likes wearing leather Speedos.

The Fish Tank actor, who dons a series of unusual outfits for his roles in forthcoming movies Jonah Hex and Centurion, refuses to limit himself to art house movies because he prefers the outfits he dons for big-budget films.

“I like doing both kinds of films. It doesn’t always have to be social commentary. Besides, I like running around in a leather Speedo.”

The actor also admits he is willing to tackle almost any film role if it feels right, and doesn’t worry about embarrassing himself in the process:

“I’ve been going on my gut pretty much from the beginning. I’m not always going to get it right, but risk interests me. There is some embarrassing element to everything I do in life. I used to beat myself up about it, but if you’re really going to learn and expand you’ve got to be open to doing things that perhaps don’t work out in the way you envisaged.”


Will Alsop Alessi Daytimer Watch - Polygonize Your Wrist!

Will Alsope Alessi Watch

Will Alsop has been designing buildings and public spaces in chic European locales for decades - Hamburg, Marseilles and London to name a few.  Recently he has begun lending his designing eye to Alessi, an Italian design firm responsible for a wide range of products too high-end and/or cerebral for me to understand much less afford. 

One thing that I do understand, though, is my need for ironic/retro kitsch - and nothing says retro kitsch quite like a neon green polygonal watch.  If you are looking for something cool and ergonomic that reminds you a bit of the 80’s yet don’t want to wave your nerd-flag too high with calculator watch then this is the timepiece for you.  At $118.48 (83 Euro) it is a small price to pay for a modernized piece of your childhood… if you were a child in the 80’s.  Wow, having to preface that makes me feel old.  Now where is my Prince - Purple Rain concert t-shirt?

Babyglow Color Changing Clothing

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Wearables, Science,

BabyglowAny first time parent knows the panic when their newborn appears to have a fever and drives their physician crazy with constant calling, only to be told a simple solution or to calm down. Chris Eberjer came up with Babyglow, clothing that changes color when the baby’s temperature is rising. Available in blue, pink and pastel green, the garment turns white when the temp is over 98.6º. They will become available in October for £20 (~$35.00) per pack. Until then, if your baby’s face looks redder than normal, that might be an indication that something is wrong.

Chloë Sevigny Wants to Design for Hermès

Chloe Sevigny for Opening CeremonyApparently Big Love star Chloë Sevigny is returning to her fashion roots. She recently made several remarks in an interview, heavily speaking about her desire to design a luxury line.

“I’d like to do something with a high-end company. You know, the way that Sofia Coppola did with Louis Vuitton. I thought it was very cool. There were no labels on anything. I like that. I prefer it,” she told the interviewer.

When asked by WWD about who she would like to collaborate with, she laughed at her far-reaching answer: “Hermès, maybe? That might be reaching a little high. Actually, NaNa would be a great collaboration!”
