Best Valentines Day Gift Ever! – Gabriel Urist

Fuck flowers… or fuck roses (I’ll take orchids)… but no seriously all I wanted for Valentines day was something from one of my favorite jewelry designers… Gabriel Urist! I’ve been a huge fan for like three years now, and of course when I saw these about a year ago I knew they were made for me… so this V-day I texted/e-mailed my boyfriend for three days straight so that he couldn’t mess this up, and in fact… he delivered! I’m the happiest little gurlie in the world because I’ll be rocking my Wu-tang earrings during fashion week this season… leaving the CC’s at home 😉

Hot New Designer Watch: ASLI FILINTA!

Since I’m all about new designers, and hot undiscovered talent here’s a great new designer for you to check out!

Born in Adana, Turkey she moved to Ankara when she was 18 to study Economics at Bikent University. She then moved to Istanbul to work in 2001. She began designing jewelry, which eventually lead to clothing and prints. Upon moving to New York City to live she developed her techniques further by attending classes at the proclaimed Parsons The New School. Now based out of New York she is designing women’s clothing and accessories.

Asli on her collection….”The oriental look of Istanbul allows each design to carry a proprietary exoticness dreaming up in the cross-cultural trends of the time in New York City. Besides the overflowing creativity and experimentation, there is receptiveness to new ideas. Some intangible elements of the time make it unique.”

“One common belief within the collection is anti-conformity and the major influence for my designs came out of the DIY culture of the arts.”

The Freitag Bag

So recently came across the supposed new big thing (that I had never heard of) called the Freitag Bag. I guess it is more popular in Europe but keep your eyes open because we may be seeing a lot more of them soon. It all started with two bike-riding designers who lived next to a truck route in Zurich. So the idea was to create these messenger bags from truck tarpaulins, bicycle innertubes, car seat belts and used airbags. That sounds pretty cool to me… all these things are totally waterproof and totally unique! Some even still have a little dirt on them, a little something that didn’t come of in the high powered wash they receive.

They have a lot of different styles of bags…for men and women. They also have a lot of unique designs and colors. Shopping online at there website was actually quite difficult. It seems easier to look up local shops that sell them and go there. I found this one at CITE in NYC.

$80 at Cite NYC

The bags are also available at ATRIUM, and TG 170.

Check out the official website to all of the cool styles, more about the company, and where you can shop in your area.FREITAG

T-Shirt Of The Day – HellzBellz

Hellz Bellz which is up there in my top two favorite womens street wear companies was founded in 2005 by Lanie Albanza. “HELLZ BELLZ A CRIME FOR ALL SEASON is a tribute to the non-conforming female youth of today.” “This is more than a brand its her personality!” This is what I like to hear, when your wearing a t-shirt and a pair of jeans I want my t-shirt to show my personality, along with a loud pair of kicks! It truly is “the answer to the male dominated street contemporary genre.” HELLZ BELLZ Go to the site and check out all the new Fall 07′ looks, the hoodies are maddd sick! Lots of items I want to pick up…as usual.

Hellz Bellz releases something hott every season. These new Fall 07′ looks feature what seems to be the very controversial kaffiyeh pattern.
