Our award for the best Japanese avant-garde animated dolls goes to…

…Undercover designer Jun Takahashi. (Who else?) GILApple, an animated short featuring Takahashi’s homemade dolls, was one of several entries in last week’s Shaded View on Fashion Film Festival, overseen by capital-F fashion blogger Diane Pernet. Popcorn flicks these flicks ain’t, but where else could you see—in addition to the dolls—Steven Klein bloody up supermodel Lara…

Prada’s Architectural New Collection

For its latest line of T-shirts, Prada has found a notable way to differentiate itself: enlist the design help of world-class architects like Rem Koolhaas and Herzog & de Meuron. Well, sort of. Koolhaas and co. didn’t really design the tees, but they did do the buildings whose floor plans and façades are silk-screened across…

What to wear with your blacked-out Rolex, Balmain tees, and Air Yeezys

Good luck finding the clothes in stores now or anytime soon—debut date and even season are still heartily TBD—but Kanye West’s first Pastelle lookbook shots have just hit the Web. (They’re likely authentic; the man himself has worn some of the pieces pictured to his various concerts/awards shows/internships.) The next big things, per the West…

Basquiat draws a crowd

The Inoue Brothers (whom you may know as the world’s leading London-based, Japanese-Danish design team) started with polos, jackets, sweats, and shirts from iconic brands like Lacoste, Wrangler, Levi’s, and Pendleton. Then, they worked with Rei…

A few new scotches worth a try (preferably with Advil handy)

The Classic Malts Collection boasts an enviable lineup of single malts from all over Scotland, so when the company debuted 11 new limited expressions this week, we took notice. After a lot of sipping—and a full day of recovery—we’ve managed to single out the best of the best. (Fair warning: Three are cask-strength—hence the recovery…

Uniqlo’s ‘tech support

Now that the days are turning brisk, your ordinary undershirt won’t cut it. Head for—where else?—Uniqlo, further cementing its all-things-for-all-people status with the new Heattech line. Heattech’s technical fibers actually help generate and retain warmth by absorbing body moisture—its movement generates heat. (An antibacterial agent in the fabric helps control odor, too.) We can’t explain…

This Just In: Vanishing Elephant at Oak

What’s in a name? In the case of Australia’s Vanishing Elephant, not much. The year-old company’s clothes are deceptively, appealingly simple. Until you take a closer look, that is. A waxed cotton anorak has shades of Penfield, except that it zips on the bias like a motorcycle jacket, adding a little toughness. A plaid button-down…

The most fun you can have in Alabama without a 12-gauge

The most attractive aspect of Porsche’s new four-door Panamera, which we plugged in our Fall Trend Reports, may well be a feature that debuted in the Carrera last fall: the seven-speed marvel of modern engineering called the PDK transmission. A recent opportunity to try out the PDK on a track (though not, sadly, in a…
