INDIE REWIND: 10 Stoner Style Don’ts for 420

Edited by

To quote a famous poet, “I got the Rolly on my arm and I’m pourin’ Chandon/ And I roll the best weed ’cause I got it goin’ on.” Yes, we can all have it going on this April 20th, just the way his High Holy Snoopness intended it. 420 is like stoner Christmas — the holidaze to end all holidaze. You’re likely to see these mavericks of marijuana — these Wizards of Weedly Place, these potentates of pot intake — wandering the streets and haunting 7-11′s the world over, as out of touch as their wardrobes. Granted, the garden variety stoner is not what one would call a fashionista, but if they can they lift their dreadlocked heads from the sweet, sweet lips of their bong to take a look in the mirror, they can avoid these few style missteps and look as fly as they feel.

Indie Editorial: Punk Debutante by Luzena Adams

Edited by

Up-and-coming fashion photographer Luzena Adams sent us this recent shoot she did for M2Woman Magazine, entitled “Punk Debutante,” and we were impressed enough to feature it on this big ole fancy site of ours. Model Lydia Carron brings the essence of punk through her scowls and deft posing while stylist James M. Rosenthal mixes and mashes the debutante with looks from Louis Vuitton, Missoni, Topshop, H&M, Theyskens Theory, Vivienne Westwood, Michael Kors and Burberry. With great hair and makeup by Conrad Dornan and Belinda Zollo, respectively, we can hopefully expect to hear great things from all involved. Check out the spread after the jump!

H&M’s Conscious Collection: Sustainability and Style on a Budget

Edited by

Sustainability is a key component in H&M‘s business model, right along with high-profile designer collaborations and co-signing really bad reality television. The company has several initiatives to support its motto of a “more sustainable fashion future,” most visibly its Conscious Collection, which boasts eco-friendly materials such as organic cotton, recycled polyester, recycled plastic, organic linen , Tencel® — a renewable silk-like material made out of cellulose — and its latest addition, organic hemp.  With chic staples for him and her starting at $9.99, the Conscious Collection offers a fashionable and affordable way to reduce your carbon footprint and look adorable while doing it. And with Exclusive Conscious, the Collection’s dressier counterpart worn recently by Michelle Williams and Amanda Seyfried, there’s an always-welcome added dose of glamour. H&M’s new spring 2012 Conscious Collection launches April 12 but until then check out the sustainable styles after the jump!

NBC’s “Fashion Star” Will Give Away $6 Mil Contract with Macy’s, Saks and H&M

Edited by

There is no dearth of fashion reality shows on television with the pioneering Project Runway immediately coming to mind. But with nine seasons and a spin off under its belt, PJ Runway hasn’t necessarily set the fashion world ablaze. It’s doubtful NBC’s Fashion Star will be any different, but with a $6 million contract with Macy’s, Saks Fifth Ave and H&M at stake, its contestants will at least have something to show for their efforts besides an air kiss from Heidi Klum and claw marks from Nina Garcia.

Prada, Armani and Lauren Among Forbes Fashion Billionaires

Edited by

Forbes Magazine, that wealth of celebrity-earnings knowledge, has published its 25th annual list of the world’s billionaires — all 1,226 of them. Their combined net worth is $4.26 trillion, or to put things in perspective: about a third of the U.S. national debt; or if they decided to break off and form their own country, Billionaire Island, the world’s fourth largest GDP. Besides Spanx founder Sara Blakely‘s debut, the fashion industry made a decent showing on the list with Miuccia Prada returning after a six-year absence.
