Reactee

reacteemain.jpg
YES - you can text my shirt. There are social networks online - then there is good old fashioned face to face networking. And then there is everything in between... latest comes from Textmarks + Revl Industries - the fashion house that brings you Headline Shirts, Gytha Mander, Revl - there are now Reactees... combining the genius of your tshirt as your billboard and text messaging. Someone can now stand right in front of you and get a message from your shirt via text - and you don't have to say a thing.

Ok, but in all seriousness ~ imagine the possibilities... at a club, conference, televised sports game... you can leave notes to strangers (you can textmessage and update the automated response at anytime) and future friends. You can give people a way to contact you without knowing your phone number, and you can call/text them back once they request the Reactee shirt's automated message.

I stopped by the Revl Industries HQ earlier today to pick up my shirt you see above ~ and conceptually it's fascinating... for a mere 20$ you basically get a magic code people can text and get a message from you (yes you could update this like you do twitter) AND a shirt. You could even print this code on business cards, put it on away messages,... get creative. Additionally these guys know quality and are as anal as we are about making things look gorgeous (and they are also sticklers for comfort and as eco friendly as possible)... more below! and images of their studio.

NOTCOUTURE

notcouture.jpg
Shhhhh. This is still kind of a secret, but we need your help. So, NOTCOT.org you see our love of all things design/tech/gorgeous... and TasteSpotting feeds our addiction (because, we all need to eat! and no reason for it not to look delicious)... naturally our other obsession that didn't always fit perfectly in the other two are for our fashion/beauty indulgences. And we have quite a few!

.... so here's NOTCouture. And we need your help - we're working through some bugs (as in trying to find and squash them), we're working through the style and feel we want there (so far its all stuff we're loving and wanting), and i guess i'm just nervous about fully launching it yet... so just sharing with readers first! Love to hear your thoughts... and you can credit the gorgeous design to Shade Elaine, this one's all her! [oh, and it functions just like the others... but not help/guidelines/etc up yet]

SATees

babysat.jpg
I never thought i'd say this, but this must be the perfect present for the teenage mom studying for SATs in your life... or your teenage babysitters... or your mail order bride. I mean, lets be honest here, its clearly not for the baby to learn some vocab early, they're barely on making sounds at that stage! But none the less, turning your child (or any child) into your human flash cards just might be crazy enough to help you score a few more points. SATees.

Markk Cleaner

markkmain.jpg
Granted i'm not a huge sneaker girl (although i do love my share of shoes)... i DO love packaging, and while i didn't know what to think when i first got emailed by Jason Markk... i'm quite impressed with their gorgeous packaging. Premium sneaker cleaner - in a quality mini sneaker box, with playful labeling and what resembles paint splatter and koi. And within the box... 8 oz. Premium Sneaker Solution and Sneaker Cleaning Brush. Gorgeous - see my hands on pics below - nice attention to detail.

The Kisses of Lola & Bailey

thekisses.jpg
What does a kiss LOOK like? How does what it looks like convey what it FEELS like? I'm not sure, but there is something complex and sensual about these pieces by Lola & Bailey ~ and this "The FIRST Kiss" collection. There are 5 kisses in all... here are the first four... check out Lola & Bailey to see the 5th. I discovered them through .org #4005.

Rogues Gallery

seashirts1.jpg
Hard to believe its time for America's Cup already again ~ and checking out Style.com's nautically inspired slide show, i discovered Rogues Gallery. Gorgeous men's line for the sailors and captains in your life... and something about the combo of the line, their models, the photography... makes you swoon a little, no? Loving the graphic design... and check out the simple hoodie below as well as a few others.

Antenna

antennamain.jpg
Antenna ~ go write it down. This is a magazine to look out for this summer! Preview issue just showed up and i'm smitten. As much as blogs amuse me, they will never replace my need for magazines... something about precise layouts, the touch and smell of paper, the way you can FLIP through a stack of pages... its not to be replaced! That being said, Antenna got my magazine excitement going again, especially since it has some fun graphic design, and reads like a mix between Lucky magazine and design magazines with a dash of the street/skate scene. (oh and its more guy slanted, but without the softcore)... this issue literally goes from A to Z as you can see in the contents page, and between the "real" articles... i'm loving their layouts for themed pages... like roundups of great glasses, cell phones, candy, condoms, bomber jackets, skateboards, and so much more... so here's a sneak peak of some of my favorite pages to keep you going until August 2007! [and the (N)EEDS- morning after section cracked me up.]

Carry-Almost-All

floralbigbag.jpg
Spring has sprung, or so it feels all up and down California these days. And with spring comes spring fashion... in all its bright happy colors, fun prints, and face it... people just tend to be in better moods around the world this time of year... Gardenia Carry-All at Anthropologie.

Aprons to go out in

anthroaprons.jpg
Somewhere in the cross section of design, food, and fashion (yes, picture the ven diagram here) ~ you will find APRONS... and they are getting sexier, more playful, and far too cute to wear only in the kitchen now. I've shown you the adorable aprons of Jessie Steele before, but check out the latest selection from Anthropologie. So with all the deliciousness to learn to cook on Tastespotting, i think its time i invest in one (or two, or a few?) cooking outfits!

York Mints + Nicole Miller

yorkmiller.jpg
Mmmm York Mints... the packaging makes me drool as much as the mints i think... but on the black and white tin... as much as i love the typography of the old school tin, the Nicole Miller black and white is just gorgeous. These are a collaboration between Hersheys and Young Survival Coalition, an organization that unites young women against breast cancer.

Rasmus Mogensen

rasmus-fencing.jpg
This post goes out to RUGenius as an early bday card of sorts (she's turning the big 22 on thurs!) ~ and as the design loving, saver of animals, nearly phd having, fencer in my life... this fashion photo set by Rasmus Mogensen was too breathtaking not to feature. And there's something about swords ~ and fencing masks... dangerously playful perhaps?

Insanely Great Tees

insanelygreat.jpg
Humility is no issue for these guys... Insanely Great Tees. But as i sit fighting with the ever crashing photoshop tonight, these tees caught my eye as i clean through the inbox... clean, subtle, playful, and oh so design geeky... i think the eraser is my fav right now.

Lochers

lochers.jpg
There's a fine line between sweet and sinister and french line Locher's dances happily right on that edge... blending the sweet and delicately naive feel of embroidery, with sayings to force a double take and then add some gorgeous web design and brilliant photography... and i'm smitten.

"you suck" - "I don't play nice" - "fuck off" - "Life is fucked up" - "Insatiable little thing" - "Casse-pied" - "I hate children" - wow. so much can be said so beautifully. Also, love her hair!

Cap & Pep & Lacoste

candplacostemain.jpg
What happens when two playful pups meet a gator? Apparently this brilliant collaborative collection from Lacoste featuring Cap & Pep of Colette fame. My favorite aspects are really the gorgeous packaging as well as the playful nature of the characters interactions on the products... see more imagery below. Via TrendsNow.

Global Warming - Diesel Style

gw1paris.jpg
Diesel takes on global warming as only they can... making their latest campaign poignant yet subtle, stylish yet absurd. Focusing on people and places... and claiming in their video that "GLOBAL WARMING CANT STOP OUR LIVES" ~ and thus begins the series of images below, about how although the polar ice caps are melting, etc you can still look good and embrace the heat... Above we have the overgrown tropical gardens in Paris... below there are the macaws who have replaced the Venetian pigeons, warm oceans in Antarctica, the tiny island of London, a post-great-flood Rio and NY, the giant desert that surrounds the great wall, the tropical paradise of Mt. Rushmore... gorgeous imagery from the great Terry Richardson. Global Warming... as approached in a way only Diesel can. Complete with links to stopglobalwarming.org and an inconvenient truth.

WAGS

The-WAGSmain.jpg
WAGS Boutique ~ the british reality tv show over at ITV... " For 13 weeks, the girls (more used to maxing out their credit cards than swiping other people’s) will swap shelf-browsing for shelf-stacking as they set up and run two rival fashion boutiques in central London. From designing the stores and selecting stock to marketing and perfecting their sales technique, the ten WAGs will require determination, flair and a head for business to succeed."

Tobias Carlson and partner at M&C Saatchi London made some fun visuals to go with the show... (more below)... the Chihuahua Urinal in particular cracks me up... although i cant imagine that going over well as boys are stumbling home from the bars? Fun campaign.

Turtle Dove Bands

featherbands.jpg
On interesting trends ~ the bird/nature inspired trend doesn't seem to be fading anytime soon, and an interesting emerging trend are the use of feathers (to go with the many bird silhouettes we've been seeing the last man months?)... Turtle Dove Feather Headband at Free People. It adds an interesting texture to the look, so natural, yet so controlled, and a nice contrast in the black and white. They also have two peacock feather variations.

Monzo VDAY

Vday is around the corner, so how do you show that you are into it, without being TOO over the top? Kind of loving this subtle little heart pin from Amor de Madre by Marc Monzo.

Air Necklace

blingballoon.jpg
Air Necklace from Kyouei Designs ~ the guys who brought us the much talked about balloon lamp and honeycomb lamp. The air necklace really is just a nicely shaped extravagant mylar balloon ~ not sure how nice those edges would feel, and too bad they dont have a picture of someone wearing it~ but fun idea.

Behind Kate Spade

katespadeads.jpg
In light of all the foooood over at Tastespotting today, i've been both famished and inspired... especially in the photography realm. Often i find the most intriguing pieces to be the behind the scenes of catalog shoots, etc... take this Kate Spade set for example, the final shots are gorgeous! In a very surreal, retro, playful, glammed out sense... and then the behind the scenes shots manage to balance those same qualities, while adding another layer of realism to them. Basically, they just made me want to run out and take pictures... or start planning NOTed #2. (via love made visible)
