Sixteen-year-old Annalisa Hartlaub, a possible usurper of Tavi’s teenage fashion queendom, has clearly worked out how to become an internet darling overnight — nostalgia. Don’t just appeal to one group of olds, hit ’em all! For a photo class project, Hartlaub took selfies to the next level, styling herself as a counter-cultural archetype, twice for each […]

The producer is auctioning off his massive headgear on eBay to benefit his charity From One Hand to Another, with bidding open until March 2. He’s even made a (quite funny!) YouTube video about it.

Microbes: huge in 2014. In the video below, from Dezeen, Suzanne Lee of the company BioCouture explains how she makes clothing out of bacteria. So far, she’s making jackets and shoes out of a material called bacterial cellulose.

Vaguely inspired by Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, ANIMAL staged a completely unauthorized fashion shoot on Wall Street yesterday, complete with unauthorized partial nudity and a wolf mask, because why not?
