Shop Indie: Omega JFK Watch

Shop Indie: Omega JFK Watch

With little more than a week before Barack Obama is to be sworn in, the country hasn’t been this excited for an incoming president since another stylish set of Democrats moved into the White House back in the ’60s. To mark the occasion and commemorate John F. Kennedy’s timeless style, Omega has reissued the ultra thin timepiece the man wore during his inauguration on January 20th, 1961.

The company crafted a limited run of 261 watches, with the same 18-karat gold casing and slim black crocodile leather strap as the original. Yes, it’ll cost you a pretty penny, but then again, it’s probably cheaper than a ticket to the inauguration.

-Via Valet

FYI: JFK original, which was given to him on the campaign trail by his friend Grant Stockdale, was purchased by Omega at auction in 2005 for $350,000.

$8,250, At Omega, 329 N. Rodeo Dr., Beverly Hills, 310.860.9990

Burberry Goes Punk!

Burberry Goes Punk!

When I hear the brand Burberry, I automatically think preppy wool peacoats and the typical black, red, beige and white check pattern. Well, stereotype no more! Thanks to the faces of Kate Moss and Agyness Deyn and the first-rate designs of Christopher Bailey, Burberry is on it’s way from prep to punk with its collection of British punk jewelry! Could this be a whole new aesthetic for Burberry…first their young and dynamic scent “The Beat,” which is amazing might I add, and now the studded, chained, meshed and plated jewelry? Fine by me!

Thanks Bleach Black!

Shop Indie: The Food Necklace: Fashion And Nutrition In One

Shop Indie: The Food Necklace: Fashion And Nutrition In One

Shop Indie: The Food Necklace: Fashion And Nutrition In One

While the Candy Necklace might not have been designer His-Ju Chang’s primary inspiration, she has certainly refined the art. Here is her solution to global hunger: the Food Necklace!

Chang proposes that the food surplus in “over-consumption” areas of the world be taken, dried out, and used for nutrition balls. These nutrition balls consist of “whole vegetable or fruit including peel and fresh or root and leaves,” and can be prepared for consumption placing them in water, milk, or soup.

In addition, this product can be made into an urban-landscape product (she compares them to tic-tacs) by making them tiny for small meals and snacks.

This jacket is completely covetable and the attached scarf makes it worth every penny and the few jealous stares from your less sartorially inclined friendos.

Yay, economy conscience fashions!!! Pick it up here.
