Video: Kid Sister Ft. Danny Brown ‘Gucci Rag Top’

16 November 2011, 15.14 | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 comment »

Chicago-based Kid Sister has launched the second video, “Gucci Rag Top,” from her four-song EP, Kiss & Tell, which goes on sale on November 29th on itunes. Featuring slick work from both Ms. Sister and Detroit’s Danny Brown, video director, Alex 2Tone, cleverly uses a a scrolling Tumblr called Gucci Rag Top as a backdrop, which if it exists in reality I’m not finding it.

Also check out Kid Sister with her hair now cropped, flashing her latest of set of long nails. Far from a newcomer to the artform of done nails, rather she was a pioneer of the current wave, throwing down the guantlet in a video called ”Pro Nails” ft. Kanye West back in 2008. See it on the next page.

We mentioned a collaboration between Nike and The Lake & Stars on an Air Force 1 style last week, and now we have the brand’s designers, Nikki Dekker and Maayan Zilberman, flashing the outcome of their efforts.

HarpersBazaarSuperModelCover 390x540 Harpers Bazaar Vintage Supermodel Issue: Cindy, Naomi, Eva, Etc.

Harpers Bazaar created a renunion of the ’90s supermodels for its December cover, reflecting a growing trend among magazines to show models more love. From left above are Yasmin Le Bon, Helena Christensen, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell and Eva Herzigova, who are all wearing Dolce & Gabbana corsetts and are photographed by Jonas Akerlund.

The cover is part of a push for the upcoming launch of a Duran Duran video for the single “Girl Panic.” The song has been out since December 2010, but we’re hearing the video featuring all of the above models and directed by Akerlund will be released within the next two weeks or so.

H&M x ‘Girl With Dragon Tattoo

HMGirlWithTattoo 540x348 H&M x Girl With Dragon Tattoo

H&M is partnering on a capsule collection with the costume designer, Trish Summerville (that’s her in the above image front and center with the blonde mohawkish hair), for the flick Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, which opens in December. In the fashion world the movie has already received quite a bit of buzz because Rooney Mara one of the actresses appearing in the movie was featured on the cover of Vogue’s November issue.

As for the collection, it has that Alexander Wang/Balmain, downtown rock ‘n’ roll feel to it, which is hardly new, even for H&M, and yet it’s still a bit of a watershed moment to see this look officially packaged to go mass.

Opening Ceremony Lookbook Spring 2012

OC SS12 08 360x540 Opening Ceremony Lookbook Spring 2012

This Opening Ceremony lookbook shot by Tim Barber brings to mind a quote in Elle magazine’s October issue by creative director Joe Zee, who in a story on various looks, declared, ”I’m not a big fan of the peasant top–it’s just sloppy. And boho chic is done.” And clearly OC is in agreement, showing a collection for Spring 2012 that’s clean, minimalist, largely monotone and pretty much the opposite of earthy.

Salt n Pepa Salt and Pepper Shakers

SaltNPepa 540x540 Salt n Pepa Salt and Pepper Shakers

Just spotted these on Melody Ehsani’s Tumblr. You see something like this and immediately you’re like, of course! Perfect! Genius! My only minor, small beef is that the image of Pep could have been a little more visually distinct, like showing her braids or at least not BOTH with the Afrrican hat. Anyway, little griping aside, what an awesome housewarming or holiday gift this would be…except that the Etsy woman who makes them is on a temporary break : (

MissoniSandalsSpring2012 358x540 MFW: Missoni Sandals Spring 2012

Anchoring the quite exuberant and optimistic fashion shown by Missoni for Milan Fashion Week were these “Candyland” sandals. Are they right for these doomy-gloomy and overly serious times? Ah well, someone needs to keep the embers of positivity burning for sunnier days ahead, no? Via Coolechic.

MFW: Prada Spring 2012–Flaming Shoes!

PardaSpring2012 (11)

In the ultimate nod to Americana, Miuccia Prada offers up a Spring 2012 collection that pays tribute to the U.S. big car culture of the ’50s, often considered to be a period that represented the nation at the height of its powers. Prada unlike many other designers, however, manages to pay homage to the period without becoming overly prissy and staid, which she pulls off by infusing designs with her signature touch of sex-kitten mischieviousness, highlighted in this collection by satin car coats and vintage cut bathing suits with sparkle detail. And oh the sandals (above) with the flames shooting out of them!! ….editors are liking to be buzzing about then for days and days to come.
