Massimo Gammacurta created these still life shots, which feature the logos of some famous fashion labels (I bet you know which ones!) as lollipops! Interesting, but mainly makes me want to go grab a dum-dum…
BleachBlack took this old tee and burned some holes it – and I love how it looks! She explains best what she did, so here is a quote: For starters, I think vintage tee’s with some sort of faded graphic work best… after all the point is for it to look lived in, right?! I would also make sure the tee is 100% cotton for best results. I used cigarettes, although I’m sure you could use some incense… just as long as it produces an ash. When the ash is sitting on the fabric it should burn from the center out and create this lovely burn color + hole.
Awesome! I can’t wait to try it the moment I get home from work today…
I’m finding these knit creations by Sandra Backlund really impressive. They are so visually interesting, complex and unique! I especially love the back of the fourth one, but they are all really gorgeous! Do you guys like them too? Have you ever seen anything like them?

P.S. Also check out these cool knits from Rödel Latin America, again via Ma Frangine…
Susie Bubble posted some pics from the new issue of Dazed and the styling is incredible! It’s not just about statement necklaces any more, these photos make me want to cover myself in dripping chains! Can’t wait to see the credits to learn who made all of this amazing jewelry.
Check out Susie’s commentary on the shoot and more photos

I was going to say this is the first pair of Nike sneakers I’ve wanted in many years, but it occurred to me that this is the first pair of any sneakers that I’ve wanted in many years! I’ve had the same pair of Converse for a long time!
At any rate, I spotted these on StyleBubble and did a double-take! I love those prints! Word is that they are very hard to come by however.
So what do you guys think? Awesome, or not your style?
Above are some of my favorite looks from Alexander McQueen’s show in Paris on Tuesday. I hate the make-up, personally, but I would sure love to have pretty much any dress from the show! Also, those silver sequined boots in the middle picture are driving me crazy! I might have to go to the craft store and get glitter or sequins and make myself some knock-offs! You can see pictures of all the outfits from the show here. What do you guys think of the show? Did you like any of the collection?
See Amy Odell of New York Magazine’s take on the show here. The pictures above are also via New York Magazine.
How about these eccentric designs by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac? I am so entertained by them! I think out of the six I would most like to wear the dollar-bill dress – though the Andy Warhol dress is pretty awesome as well. What do you guys think? These are some seriously over-the-top designs, but they sure are memorable!

This striking young 8 year old is Arlo Weiner, the son of Matt Weiner, producer of The Sopranos and Mad Men. He is so cool! Arlo has been creating his own looks since the age of 3, when he asked his parents to get him a top hat. GQ has an awesome little article about him that I bet you’ll like, and they have a slideshow featuring some of Arlo’s favorite outfits, which is where I got the pictures above. Definitely worth checking out!
