La Fraise

tees.jpg By now most people are familiar with Threadless, but not nearly as many reference some of the fun submit-art tees at La Fraise. The prices aren’t too bad, the art is fresh, and the site is pleasantly refreshing with eye-catching icons.

P.S. Did you find the hidden headphones on their page linking to a soundtrack for secret agents on the prowl? And don’t fret about your french skills, if needed, do like i did and have your resident francophile help you register so you can vote and purchase happily. (more of my favs post jump)

P.S.S Great blog on the site as well, with some images of behind the scenes of your home run online art tee shop.

Cuffed by Time

watch.jpg Today is a Mixko OO (object oriented) day. I love this idea, of changing the way people see both high end branding (Gucci) and the linear approach to time ruling your life… they are ultimately handcuffed to you, or you to them rather. Poetic. Deserving of a post of its own to make you think.

Bored Frustrated PinkCiao Ciao. Welcome all the readers who have been frequenting this newbie site. Just wanted to take a moment to fill you in on who we are and what’s going on. This is the graphic that got us going to start this site, (from ShadeElaine )… so trial hand t-shirt print starting soon kind of a tribute to our state of being/ideas.

but just out of curiosity, let me know if there’s any interest in others wanting shirts as well, i assume it can’t be too hard to pop a shirt in the mail to people. ~notcot

UnZip Me.

diesel.jpg Ahhh, jeans. Ok ok so Diesel is practically like the Gap at a certain point, or at least spending enough time in Italy where the stores are around every corner… but admitedly they are daring with the artwork/media/design and do come up with some pretty fun collections (as hit and miss as they can be). And definitely some amusements.

Like this bracelet. What more can i say, it just makes you stare, and want to touch it.

Few more images along this theme after the jump… They also make interesting use of the rivets (?) jeans have.

Kissable Belly-Button

P60333_hero.jpg A Sephora To-Go Bestseller, i kid you not. It seems crazy at first, yet strangely curious as well… Spring has sprung (almost) bikini’s are back (well as soon as the sun is consistent enough for a good tan)… so why not make your belly-button tantalizing?

Deliciously Kissable Belly Button Love Potion Fragrance A provocative new concept in scent for the new frontier in erogenous zones … the belly button! Daring, seductive, and deliciously kissable, this roll-on fragrance is fully charged with sweetness that guarantees instant attraction. Simply pick your favorite potion: French vanilla and smooth caramel (Creamy), silky, or juicy, and berry sweet with a subtle hint of crisp green bouquet (Juicy). So irresistible, it’s Ok to double dip …

Year of the Cock

2005 Year of the Rooster, throw that in Hollywood, around the time of the Oscars, and naturally i suppose you end up with the Year of the Cock. Found this one at a Sassy Chicks Sample Sale up at Highlands, aussie woman and two friends designing them in LA. They also have a line of cheeky fortune cookie based shirts, and babies wear… see FortuneTees. Very LA, and as a designer i must admit it’s a gorgeous graphic. I could resist. She also mentioned they were given out in all the Oscars Presenters goodie bags (not sure if thats a good thing, but some people go for that). And as a sucker for packaging, they use chinese take-out boxes and even the extremely flimsy plastic bags you’d get take-out food in. Bonus points for thoroughness? Amusing find none-the-less.

Sleeve Scarf

indigopeople_sm.jpg A random and brilliant idea over at Hint Fashion Magazine’s shop, a hybrid of wearable objects to keep you warm, it can transform between being literal sleeves to keep your arms warm (not a far reach from those tiny sweaters that are really just connected sleeves) and a scarf wrap around to give your neck a very bizarre looking hug to onlookers… a twist on the old… or a new take on recycling?
