Over the past few months, five fashion schools have been working with the European Space Agency to find out what happens when space-age technologies and materials collide with couture design. The results, shown here, were unveiled at the London Science Museum yesterday.
This fun peek inside a factory that makes jeans from Carson Nicely shows the creative methods a manufacturer uses to create a pair of distressed denim. They spray paint color on them, mark up some fake whiskers on the front of the pants, tumble the jeans with a bunch of rocks, and basically mutilate the hell out of a…
I’m usually content to stick with the sports band that came with my Apple Watch, but you should keep something a little nicer in the bullpen for formal occasions, and this $17 stainless steel strap is a big step up in the looks department. Promo code E4WCLZYB should work on silver and space grey, in both 38mm and 42mm…
The lifecycle of a new gadget is relatively predictable: When it’s brand new, only early adopters are interested. Once the technology matures, everybody buys one. But smartwatches still haven’t caught on with most people—and that’s because no one has made a smartwatch that’s worth its cost.
Amazon’s first-ever live TV show will air tonight. Called Style Code Live, it will features three exuberant presenters attempting to sell Amazon’s clothing stock. Yes, it’s a shopping channel. No, you probably won’t be able to endure it.
It was really only a matter of time before the Finnish brand known for popularizing playful, accessible, well-designed products for good living made its way into the American retailer that epitomizes those values.
Many of us have bought clothes from Amazon, but we’ll apparently soon have the chance to by clothes by Amazon. That’s right. It looks like Amazon wants to launch its own line of shirts, pants, dresses, and so on.
Back in my day, schools used to recommend bringing a watch into tests so you’d keep track of the time. But now, the rise of smartwatches could lead to a flat-out ban of all timepieces for test-takers, if the latest rule at a major university in Japan is any indication.
Bollman Hat Company, located in Adamstown, Pennsylvania, is America’s oldest hat factory. It first opened in 1868 and its machines are decades old and that all makes for a fascinating place with so much history. It’s really cool to see how the machines work since they all have their own specific tasks and weird way of…
A family from the northern Canadian territory of Nunavut is accusing high-end European clothing designer Kokon To Zai of using a sacred inuit design without permission.
All the best-dressed explorers wore glittery spacesuits more suitable to the Silver Surfer than somber NASA astronauts in the early days of the Space Age. These are the helmets, gloves, and boots for the Mercury Seven astronauts.
Guillermo del Toro is known primarily as an auteur of highly stylized horror and science fiction, but with Crimson Peak, the director has made a film that has captured the imagination of the fashion world. On Tuesday evening, Bergdorf Goodman unveiled a new series of windows inspired by the film, interpreting its…
“It looks like a watch!” my wife proclaimed, when I showed her the Pebble Time Round. She wasn’t stating the obvious. She meant that out of all the smartwatches she’d ever seen, it’s the first one that looks like something she would wear.
So this is a thing that actually happened. Yesterday at New York Fashion Week, Tumblr debuted its very own line of dresses, shirts, sweaters and accessories — inspired by ten of the social network’s artists.
Android Wear watches are cool and all, but none of them are especially fancy. (Even the new Moto 360, with its flat tire screen.) Until now, at least. An alligator leather wristband, 23-karat gold plating, and a $1000-plus price tag mean the LG Watch Urbane Luxe is a particularly niche geek accessory.
The Moto 360 was one of the first wearables that got us thinking, “Yeah, this whole smartwatch thing just might work.” It had some flaws, sure, but it was a functioning computer on your wrist and it wasn’t completely terrible. Now, Motorola is taking another stab at with the new Moto 360—cleaning up the design but…
While Android makers like LG, Motorola, and ASUS, are working on their second-gen smartwatches, Huawei is finally getting around to the first. Previously announced back in Barcelona this spring, the Huawei Watch is finally ready to conquer wrists. And it’s a good start—with room for improvement.
If you thought showing up to a fancy shindig in a full-on tuxedo was as classy as one could get, you probably weren’t aware that someone on Etsy was selling tiny GoldenEye N64 cartridge cufflinks to perfectly complete that ensemble.
These idiotic around-the-neck headphones have been everywhere lately, and I have no idea what and why they are. What in the hell, man?
