I am moving away from only featuring cool things for sale and writing more about the influence of fashion on style, style on fashion and the clothes that people actually wear. This is all in preparation for my move to New York where I will ditch advertising and concentrate on studying and selling my well-loved vintage collection. I hope you enjoy!

When artists take the integral characteristics of one media and apply it to another, some amazing things can happen. Case in point, these beautiful, limited edition digitally printed silk scarves by handbag designer and French genius Philippe Roucou, in collaboration with M. Cherie.
Featuring the unique imperfections of Polaroids, these scarves take the fuzzy edges and quirky lighting of instant photos and makes almost painterly designs that are both beautiful and brazenly cool.

Winter wears a scarf of irony. Really. You look outside and it is dark and wet, with almost daily snow showers and persistent icy sidewalks. "Brrrr!" you think, as you inch up the thermostat to keep warm inside. But the minute you do that, your skin becomes just a little bit dryer, because the radiator that keeps you warm also sucks all the moisture out of the room.

Italian company Il Coccio Design have produced a collection of nine white ceramic humidifiers which sit on, hang from or can be wedged behind radiators. With designs ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous, these humidifiers are designed to be more pieces of furniture -- pieces that inspire comment and bring personality into the room. Renowned designers include Alberto Meda, Marco Ferreri, Denis Santachiara,

The coolest thing I have seen in a very long time - now you can tuck your ultra sleek MacBook into an ultra classic case that screams DISCERNING HIPSTER from forty paces away. Really.
Made by Twelve South, a South Carolina company devoted to designing ultra-cool accessories for the Mac, the BookBook is really the perfect thing for mustached ironicals and steampunk afficionados alike.
From the site:
BookBook is a one-of-a-kind, hardback leather case designed exclusively for MacBook and MacBook Pro. Available in Classic Black or Vibrant Red, BookBook brings three levels of security to your prized Mac. First, the hardback cover and spine provide solid protection from the rigors of the road. Second, the vintage book design disguises MacBook for superior security. And third, the stylish case protects you from being like everyone else because BookBook is totally original, just like you.
Th BookBooks are compatible with 13-inch MacBook, 13-inch MacBook Pro and 15-inch MacBook Pro. No word yet on accessories for the iPad, but I am sure they are coming.
Visit the site and see the other cool Mac accessories. Yea!
