Play your own MacBeth & question the existentialism of life

Look, we’re all gonna die. It fucking sucks. There’s no amount of haggling, begging or denying that will save you from the cold dark void that we will all come to embrace. So why not embrace that mortality on a daily basis? A good way to start is with this vividly detailed Black Skull Candle. […]

A blue iteration of their iconic rain gear for Spring/Summer 2014

If you care to worship the cult of Alexander McQueen, the house has offered the latest iteration of their famed Skull umbrella. The signature Skull is rendered in a bold, bright azure resin for Spring/Summer 2014, and is probably the only reason you’ll pony up $565 for the otherwise quite traditional rain gear.

Luxury high-tops for winter holidays 2013

A pull loop at the heel collar and an interior zip closure make it easy to keep out the cold. Contrasting the sneakers’ pitch-black tone are burgundy rubber soles and nude beige leather lining.

Berlin artist executes sculpting on a new canvas

Eviscerating text and whitespace from antique books, Alexander Kortzer-Robinson creates entirely new narratives from only pre-existing charts, graphs, illustrations and other visual elements inside of each book. The result is a relatively 3-dimensional collage of relics that have lost their value over the passage of time. Much like Guy Laramee’s Landscapes Carved from Books, the tomes […]

Italian made textured & worn 100% leather shoes

No need to waste time breaking in your shoes when you can have Alexander McQueen just do it for you. The label’s treated shoes have a casual worn-out patina, but can still make the rounds when you’re trying to make those dollars, not spend them. The 100% leather shoes are made in Italy, and feature […]
