We have touched on the idea of high fashion using skeletal make-up styles for shoots, and we are especially impressed by French photographer Pauline Darley for Ever Magazine, where model Clémentine Levy is touched up with a ghostly look. Elegant and subtle.

Basic geometric forms and good use of colors are hard to turn down, and Saskia Pomeroy is an artist and illustrator working out of London who seems to know this well. Her commercial clients are a respectable list including Folk Clothing, Topman and H & M. Her use of pattern and illustration work equally well for fashion as for a fine art print.

You can now eat luxury (and there are a ton of people who gobble up LV goods like they are waffles, and we are pretty sure that LV makes their low end bags like waffles). OTIS graduate Andrew Lewicki has created one of our favorite sculptures of the year; the Louis Vuitton Waffle Maker. Waffles from here go for $32. Joking. Not really.

Charming Baker, the UK artist that was featured in our January 2012 issue, collaborated with famed British fashion designer (he makes a fantastic sunglass, FYI) Paul Smith on Triumph in the Face of Absurdity, a polished cast aluminium bicycle now on display at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. The work was part of Britain Creates 2012: Fashion + Art Collusion, where leading British fashion designers and visual artists collaborate in a ground-breaking series of works commissioned as part of the London 2012 Festival.

The people/person at Studio Cromie in Grottaglie, Italy who organize and produce the fantastic public art festival, FAME, have just started a site-specific project of tee-shirts made in limited numbers at the Studio Cromie space. If you have ever been to Grottaglie, then you know how distinct and fantastic the various walls and buildings are, and Studio Cromie has captured the unique aesthetic on the tees. Video after the jump...

The simple idea; reimagine food as fashion. Fulvio Bonavia had a fantastic book, A Matter of Taste, that was released a few years ago, featuring photography of food as fashion pieces. Rasberrry bags, sardine belts, and artichoke hats could possibly be one day, high fashion.

The first Reebok Pump was obviously the best, although we did have a pair of the Blacktop Pumps for a bit that were quite sweet, especially when Sinbad was the celebrity pushing them in commercials. We digress. Alex Jones has created what we can only assume is the world's first and only Lego Reebok Pump, created for rapper Kamp One of Vienna. That's right, Vienna.

The photography and self-portraits Lydia Roberts creates are magically haunting and emanate the same kind of ghastly beauty that resonates from dated found photographs. Her eerily dark portraiture and holographic staged shots have deep set mysticism and a ghastly, vintage feel, adding to the brilliance of her portfolio as a whole. Love...
