As a rule of thumb, studies in which writers, even famous and successful ones, work are usually ramshackle—gross, even—unless they’ve been turned into museums already. I don’t think Danielle Steel’s workspace is an outlier, except that it’s a type of disgusting I can really get behind: it’s tacky as hell.
Kenneth Jay Lane, who designed costume jewelry for basically every stylish jet-set woman who ever lived, has died at 85.
Two freshmen roommates at Ole Miss, Lindy Goodson and Abby Bozeman, have transformed the dungeon that freshmen typically inhabit into a Pinterest-worthy princess pad. Cute, gals!
Following Tuesday Bassen’s public announcement that Zara has been unapologetically stealing her trademarked designs, fellow artist Adam J. Kurtz, also a victim of Zara’s theft, has begun cataloguing the large number of illustrators and designers who are currently being knocked off by the Spanish fashion chain.
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.
On Thursday, Eater posted about this couch-cum-bed-cum-body bag, comparing it to a “taco,” “burrito,” and “burger in a bun.” Eater probably thought, “This is good content for us because we write about food.” They were wrong, because the thing is actually a vagina, and that is what Jezebel writes about, and also back…
There was a time when kitchens were designed for the individual women who would spend their days in them—counter tops and sinks were measured to be ergonomically kind to their users, to facilitate easy use and minimize strain.
Airplanes used to be luxurious things, laden with fine china and unlimited wine. But over the years, the glory of flying has faded—giving way to broken technology (frustrating), bruised knees (painful), terrible smells (actually dangerous!). Yet, somehow, someone has figured out a way to make things worse.
The five stages of grief are denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. For dealing with death of a lover, designer named Mark Sturkenboom has developed an item that attempts to make that final stage a little easier: a blown-glass dildo that also happens to be a beautiful gold-plated urn. You know, for…
The T has profiled the god Iris van Herpen, Dutch fashion designer for a new future, celebrating the innovative and purely artistic way she uses technology and scientific inspiration to create heretofore unseen garments—the kinds of dresses princesses from 2072 can dream of.
As a fashion object and symbol, the high heel shoe is weighted with meaning. It's also weighted with the wearer's entire body weight. The stiletto might be one of the only designs that is physically painful but has somehow has persisted for centuries.
How much was the last toothbrush you bought? Probably not enough to be worth remembering. That sort of casual indifference to your toiletries is a kind of luxury for those without any luxuries at all. More specifically, for those without a $4,000 toothbrush staring them in the teeth every morning.
New Yorkers have said plenty of negative things about the super-expensive supertalls going up in Manhattan. They tower over their neighbors. They cast shadows over Central Park. But no one has yet equated them with anorexic women—until the May 2014 issue of Vanity Fair.
Man, I really love nail art. You might not share the same kind of enthusiasm for crazy custom manicures, but we can all agree that the Laser Girls' 3D-printed nails are decidedly cooler than your average press-on acrylics.
Just in time for your holiday gift-giving, it's the G-Spot: a mouse that's shaped like a vagina, with a scrolling clitoris, and a button in place of the eponymous spot. With all the hand-wringing over women orgasming less during casual sex, perhaps these mouses can provide an anatomy lesson, kinda, for hapless men and…
According to Homes and Hues, this decadent shower was designed by Sieger Design, with interior design by Scienbein + Pier, and it includes six separate shower heads that produce six different "water bars" over a reclining space. Oh temptress, thy name is six separate shower heads that produce six different "water…
Imagine this: After producing an event offensive to Native Americans, Paul Frank is now working with Native American artists and designers — going from cultural appropriation to cultural appreciation.
Japanese artist Rie Hosokai, of Daisy Balloon, created this amazing piece of high Lego fashion for Tokyo's "Piece of Peace" charity exhibit at the Parco Museum. Structurally it's simply stunning (albeit a bit Disney Princessy). The construction, contour and shape are based on Hosokai's balloon dress. As an item of…
One ought not judge a book by its cover, but one may judge book covers in general: Some just work, whether it's because there's a beautiful illustration, an interesting use of type, or a stark simplicity (think Catcher In The Rye).
