Loose Fur


Adidas’ Rod Laver has seen a lot of different variations over the year, but the latest version is enough to catch our eye. It seems like furriness is having quite a renaissance in the sneaker world. If you count these Vans, that makes for just one shy of a trend. We’re guessing Spike Jonze has something to do with it…

Loose Threads: Vegas Edition


While we heartily enjoyed our stay in Vegas, we couldn’t help but notice that as a style town…things are getting a little sloppy.

It’s not all that surprising. Having made its name on excess of every kind, we don’t expect the Las Veganese to suddenly embrace subtly refined tailoring or jackets that aren’t covered in fur...but it's still much much worse than we thought. These snaps both come from the MGM Grand’s Bernini and offer a more serious warning than we ever could. It would be nice to try on, but you wouldn’t want to live there.

Light on your Feet


We like our leather jacket as much as anyone, and the occasional exotic touch isn’t the worst thing in the world. But this is just awful.

Leaving aside the flat-out grotesqueness and the unnatural splay of the digits, anything that leaves dead claws brushing gently against a woman's neck is bound to be a bad idea.

Quite frankly, we’re creeped out just looking at it.

Prada's Revenge, Squiring Bosworth and The Fur Flies

Kate Bosworth

Vengeance is Hers: Guy Trebay reports that Miuccia Prada called her new collection, "revenge on men for the social and sartorial contortions they impose on women." Run you fools. [NY Times]

Designer Knocks Off: Margareta ven den Bosch, the longtime head of design at H+M is retiring and being replaced by pupil Ann-Sofie Johansson. Now, maybe, that Ma and Pa shop can finally sell some clothes. [DNR]
