OAKLEY to do Balenciaga Sunglasses

The first ever Balenciaga sunglasses collection will be made by Oakley. Seems that sunglasses are the new accessory du jour, obviously our ever warming world and increased movement into urban centers with their glaring reflective glass towers of death, aka skyscrapers, has something to do with it. Perpetual summer is here.

Oakley's designs will be unveiled in October and are purported to have a futuristic, robotic but hand forged feeling to them, perhaps an allusion to infamous Balenciaga metal leggings from S/S 07 that have been in a million editorials.

Hirst does NY Fashion Week.

Damien Hirst is developing a collection with Levi's. The line will be called Warhol Factory X Levi's X Damien Hirst and will be shown first at Fashion Week in NYC in September.

Fashion & Art cross paths again.

What shall we expect? Pill covered skinny jeans would go over big. Easy access and instant popularity. got my vote!

I'll eat your liver and still look fabulous.

Jean Paul Gaultier's latest ads are very intriguing... His recent couture collection uses influences from colonial times, and these ads are utilizing Maori face tattoos. In the mid 1800s, the Maori people in what is now called New Zealand were colonized by the british. The British were fascinated by the cannibalistic rituals of the Maori warrior... and taking note of the popularity of the Hannibal Lecter films, the rest of the western world still is as well.

"We now live in a world where those we once called exotic live among us, defining their own identities, precluding our ability to define ourselves in opposition to "others" and to represent our own culture as universal." source
