David Byrne’s Bike Racks

David Byrne’s been a busy guy. He has teamed up with St. Vincent for their music project, wrote a book fairly recently about biking everywhere, and just designed some new interesting bicycle racks in Brooklyn for the Brooklyn Academy of Music.  When they (aliens or what-have-you) discover the steel bike racks that are actually the words “micro lip” and “pink crown” in seventy million years, they’ll be mighty confused. In the meantime, we’ll just enjoy the sheer randomness of it and pretend we know what he’s talking about. As a bonus, the new racks actually work and allow more bikes … Continue reading David Byrne’s Bike Racks

Lana Del Rey for Vogue Italia

  Our girl Lana Del Rey is putting that modeling contract of hers to good use gracing the pages of Vogue Italia August 2012. She’s already been featured in Vogue UK and Vogue Nippon (Japan) which means Anna Wintour doesn’t exactly have her finger to the pulse of the zeitgeist as in years past.   Check out some of the retro-inspired looks–more on the Vogue Italia site + a behind the scenes video of the shoot. Be warned: Lana’s all bedroom eyes and bouffants. All photographs by Ellen Von Unwerth.     Purrfect. (Sorry! Had to.)       Doesn’t she look like … Continue reading Lana Del Rey for Vogue Italia
