Today I went to check out the Urban Outfitter Space Ninety 8 concept store in Williamsburg. Didn’t really know what to expect beside the bohemian vibe of UO with cheap quality clothing, accessories, shoes and fun junk.
What I really like is the local artists section when you enter, on the left. I like that they included a little description/bio of the artists. The other section I was into was the natural beauty section on the 1FL/Women’s floor. They actually sell a lot of natural products, yes, I read through a lot of product labels. This is a big change from all the crap we usually see.
I know they are struggling to get a liquor license but I’m curious to check out the rooftop. You can tell I’m over this weather! I’m afraid it is going to be douchy/trashy though.
Durex created wearable underwear that “transfers touch across vast distances.” Using sustainable fibers and Arduino, the team of developers and fashion designer collaborated to create a “comfortable […] and attractive piece of technology.”
Fundawear uses a custom mobile app that allows both parties to “touch” the other by pressing on dots hovering over various body parts. Each spot on the app is connected to actuators (those little chips that vibrate in your phone) embedded within the underwear itself to replicate human touch.
Meant to post this ages ago: one of my favorite stores in Paris has finally launched its website earlier this month, check it out at merci-merci.com, you can totally get a virtual feel of what this store is about. There’s a good selection from the e-com store, there are mainly “merci” branded stuff and not designer clothing/shoes/bags/accessories, but the home section is what you would find in the actual store.
75 Parisiennes is the name of a book by Baudouin, a French Photographer. He shot 75 Parisian women in their apartment over the course of 6 years and I love it. Check out more photos on LiveFastMag.com and Baudouin’s website.
