We were just going to go ‘Hey, John Malkovich has his own fashion label where he’s been designing clothes for the ‘bohemian of the new millen-nium’ since 2009. There’s even a new made-in-Italy beachwear collection from a Yoox collaboration!’ — until we got distracted with news reports that he recently saved the life of a guy on a Toronto street.
If wearable art had just one poster child, we bet it’d be Iris van Herpen. Her creations fuse craftsmanship and futurism to such a bewildering extent that even the future looks dated.
Want to show your love for bikes without, well, carting those wheels around everywhere you go? Integrate it into your style with this new line of bike-inspired graphics from Clockwork Gears Clothing. Unique spins on everything from chains, to wheels, to gears, blended with unexpected settings and creatures. And even better yet, Clockwork gears donates […]
Well, this pretty much says it all. Clothing designers Bad Taste Factory tap into the hipster mystique for their latest graphic tee. Complete with plaid, beard, and hatchet, we’re pleased to offer this gem in the Lost At E Minor store.
It’s amazing what we can make stuff out of these days. Dutch company Kazmok, for instance, makes an entire bag range — such as briefcases, travel bags and even iPad sleeves — out of rubbery conveyor belts. The materials are sourced from the flower industry, postal depots, distribution centers and the recycling industry.
These days I’m seeing quite a few decidedly non-hipster folks in red trousers, but wearing these without a ounce of irony. The slightly rude sounding site Look At My Fucking Red Trousers — self-described as “a collection of photographs in celebration of the vibrant and burgeoning red-trousered communities of London and elsewhere” — really say […]
A fashion label that doesn’t give a hoot about fashion? You heard right. New Sydney design collective Eager & Vane certainly don’t. They are creating wild and outlandish silk scarves in joyous prints with surrealist motifs for the oblivious trendsetter: scarves that make the wearer feel as individual and special as their designs. The three […]
If you literally feel like widening your horizon, you should take a closer look at one particular suburb of Buenos Aires called San Isidro. It’s a beautiful, hip area where a lot of creative people and artists reside and work. For instance, Dreams Factory, a local company manufacturing sunglasses and graduated glasses. All hand made […]
I’m usually not big into recycled jewelry, but these crystal pieces that won the Inhabitat’s Spring Greening contest are pretty clever. Though a lot of recycled material jewelry has an unfortunate resemblance to the trash it was up-cycled from, these crystal earrings bear very little resemblance to the CD jewel cases they began life as. This is some of the most successful […]
LEGO is no longer just for the kids. Now fashionable businesswomen can take them to work with these colorful stilettos by artist Finn Stone. Not only are these shoes the perfect ice-breaker or conversation piece, they may also come in handy if you need to distract a grumpy child on the go.
These dresses take concept of ‘bodycon’ dressing to a whole new level. Hérve Léger has nothing on these sculptural outfits. Chromat Garments is a fashion line born of architecture and urban design. Each piece acts almost as an exo-skeleton or scaffolding around the human body. As a result, the dresses turn your body into a sculpture on display. Each dress […]
Increasingly, the consumer is expected to give up their freedom and privacy in favour of commerce. This somewhat ironic solution to the problem is provided in the form of this designer wrist mirror titled Private Space. Here, freedom and privacy have themselves become commercial products. These Private Space wrist mirrors are available in different colours […]
UK brand Ciaté has released the Chalkboard Manicure kit which comes with matte black nail polish to make an honest chalkboard out of any fingernail. You won’t have to suffer chalk remorse either — even the chalk is thoughtfully water-soluble so you can wipe your designs away without messing with the base coat.

I love the inspirational story behind this stylish pajama company, it makes me feel like there are still genuinely good people in the world. Punjammies is more than just a comfy pajama manufacturer. It’s a means of empowering Indian women who have been rescued from forced prostitution. Instead of just rescuing the girls and then leaving […]
So this is what happens when big brands hire artists for new campaigns: devil pandas run off with lovely shoes. Naughty panda. This Jimmy Choo commissioned short animation is directed and illustrated by Jo Ratcliffe, in collaboration with artist Rob Pruitt. Pruitt says: ‘I think there is a certain amount of role-playing fantasy that goes […]
