"A simple board with the whole world as an available surface."

Rick Owens, a high-fashion magnate prone to street wear inspiration, has taken his sights to the skateboard world with the RICKBOARD deck.

Barbie Lagerfeld rocking the world's smallest fingerless gloves

German-born, Paris-living fashion lord Karl Lagerfeld is ruling more than the Chanel label these days. He’s also taking toystore shelves to the catwalk.
