Highsnobette-Superfertile-The World- Human Development2

Kali Arulpragasam , a longtime Highsnobette favorite, never ceases to amaze as she launches her latest collection of statement jewellery for Superfertile titled “The World.” As a way to bring attention to inequalities  in the world of various issues, each necklace illustrates what parts of the world is more affected. Hover over the images to see what issue they represent: green: .25%,  light green: .30% , blue: .45%, purple: .50%, orange .60%,  red +.60% . The higher the percentage the higher the inequality. Images courtesy of Superfertile.

3.1.Philipp Lim Comic Phillip Lim Fashion Comic Kill The Night

Comics used as an art form to express retro looks with ironic humor is a common practice, and of course the  fashion industry is in on the trend. Phillip Lim has now thrown his hat in the ring by showing his Autumn 2012 collection as drawn by John Ostrander and Star Wars artist Jan Duursema in a book called “Kill The Night.” The comic displays the collection with neo-noir heroines who became the natural medium to tell a story.

“A story of duality and metamorphosis, day and night, black and white, love and betrayal. Things are not what they seem. Look again.”

Along a huge Facebook and Twitter campaign the designer eventually will reveal who the characters are really based off of. The comic book is set to launch on Fashion’s Night Out on September 6th and will be available from 3.1. Phillip Lim’s website and in-store during FNO.

Vhernier ‘Haiti’ Ring

Fashion and luxury can be great tools to raise capital for social/humanitarian causes, however, oftentimes in an effort to appeal to sensitivity  and compassion,  the images used have no connection to the actual items but everything to do with the cause they ‘re supporting. It’s like seeing a save the shildren, or prevent animal abuse  commercial that just happens to play right after a religious program.

One can say that showing the raw living conditions of an  impoverished country brings reality and hopefully compassion to the viewer and prospective consumer, but what also happens is that  these images  also  can create a sense of guilt,  an uneasiness that can propel action but also limit the interaction of the consumer with the offered product.

As controversial as this might sound while I believe in the goodness of humankind, not every consumer will be touched by every cause, or need be presented with the graphic images associated with the cause.  Luxury is about status, indulgence and also craftsmanship . The emotions connected to  luxurious beautiful items can be revisited over and over again, hence my appreciation for Vhernier’s “Haiti” Ring, whose sleekness of design and presentation is a great example of fashion and luxury with a social component that is implied but not forced. The consumer is seduced by the beauty of item and sometimes that is enough. Each ring purchased will provide a year of tuition for a child at St. Luc Street School and The Academy for Peace and Justice in Haiti. Purchasing info here.

Not by any means a recently launched product, but kudos to Racked for stumbling upon artist Mari Kasurinen, who is offering Karl Lagerfeld and Lady Gaga (wearing a “meat” dress) versions of My Little Pony. She has other versions, too, like My Little Chewbacca, My Little Catwoman, etc, all of which it appears have been sold. Whether or not Karl or Lady Gaga are still available is unknown, but you can email her to find out.
