Karl Lagerfeld goes to Shanghai and dresses the boys in an iconic Chanel jacket that's half Jacky O and half Communist worker force.
It's that final line: "This is not what I wanted but it helps" that kills me. Something tells me this is an anynomous cry for help from Santa himself. Maybe not.

Shout Out Louds - 'Walls', from the Album 'Work', to be released in 2010. To be honest, I really don't like videos like these: black and white shots in the studio of a band that isn't personality-driven. But I do look forward to the album and I've been playing this song all week, so they get a bonus pass.

Gucci Dayglo editorial from erm.. that one magazine. I swear I saved that link somewhere for real this time. Crap.
Vladimir Nabokov has a new book out! Well, sort of.
Quote Random House:
"When Vladimir Nabokov died in 1977, he left instructions for his heirs to burn the 138 handwritten index cards that made up the rough draft of his final and unfinished novel, The Original of Laura. But Nabokov’s wife, Vera, could not bear to destroy her husband’s last work, and when she died, the fate of the manuscript fell to her son. Dmitri Nabokov, now seventy-five—the Russian novelist’s only surviving heir, and translator of many of his books—has wrestled for three decades with the decision of whether to honor his father’s wish or preserve for posterity the last piece of writing of one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. His decision finally to allow publication of the fragmented narrative—dark yet playful, preoccupied with mortality—affords us one last experience of Nabokov’s magnificent creativity, the quintessence of his unparalleled body of work.
Photos of the handwritten index cards accompany the text. They are perforated and can be removed and rearranged, as the author likely did when he was writing the novel."
I don't know about you, but those last two lines just made me pee in my pants from excitement. Santa, if you're reading this: this is what I want for Christmas. Also, if you could buy up a month of my time so I can play with this full-time, that would be great.

On to the next one:
I have three favourite sneakers for Summer 2010:
The first one is a Lanvin:
The second and third are both Reebok:
I've seen all colorways and the tan version of this one is a cut above the rest (but I can't show you those pictures... yet).
I know, I know. But I still definitely would.

These are the Louboutin sneakers everyone's been raving about since April.
They even have the red sole.

Let's end once more with some blatant silliness:
