It's best not to question what is you are looking at, rather, bathe in it's awesomeness. According to the good folks over at Instructables you will need: -a laptop computer, pda, or other electronic device
-yarn (I used about 10 skeins for this)
-knitting needles (straight, double-pointed, and circular)
-a sense of humor
Technology meets fashion, or fashion meets technology, this is far beyond quirky and it wins for that alone. It does solve a problem or you could just, you know, go to another room if privacy is your thing.
It's been a pleasure to get to know Savannah who heads up the fashion brand Tinc based out of SF no less. She's one of those people whose fragility and strength are in equal measure and it shows in her work. Not limited to fashion her first book is published this year by Seven Stories press out of NY whose back catalogue reads like a who's who of the literary and political front lines, from the likes of Kurt Vonegut and Howard Zinn. The book tells her story of impersonating and embodying the role of J.T.Leroy. I've also been tipped off that she's going to be introducing a line of underwear inspired by her years playing/being J.T.Leroy the infamous writer. The underwear will mimic some of the restraints needed to disguise a body and turn a silhouette from one thing to another. anthropomorphic androgyny. It should be available in collaboration with a certain store whose name I can’t mention yet.
Although I much prefer the AW 07/08 collection, Starstyling are still rocking their thing. This rainbow boho abugrahib/guantanamo piece is fun for all seasons. I think we'll be showing at the Jessica Silverman gallery in SF with these guys in August, so am looking forward to seeing it in person.
In today's society, where random gunshots are fired every day, wearing a helmet outdoors for protection might warrant a few stares. Thankfully, Tobias Wong has designed the Bulletproof Rose to protect those who care to protect themselves from all those snipers; and look stylish at the same time.
