Whether its the imagery, mottos or nostalgia these personalized World War II bomber jackets are nothing short of inspirational. The narrative that is told about each of the jackets and their respective owners is fascinating. Each of the jackets has a tremendous amount of personality, style and carry a handcrafted look that is just undeniably genuine. Those denim jackets from the 1980s got nothing on these, see more after the jump…

London's Boudicca is targeting ladies of spray can art everywhere, with their imaginatively conceived Wode perfume, a spicy amber scent packaged in a spray paint can—that goes on blue but disappears within seconds leaving behind only the sultry bouquet.

Illustrator Jo Ley has her creative hand in many things, one of which being her attraction to fashion illustration. Apart from being dedicated to her drawings, Ley also loves sci-fi, ice-cream and kittens.

French fashion photographer Guy Bourdin (b. 1928 - d. 1991) was one of the first fashion photographers to create a complex narrative and then capture the overpowering mood of a single moment, whether it was provocative, exotic, surrealistic, or even sinister.

We like a bit of lowbrow aesthetic invading the fashion world, and although we would not tote a gun-toting tote, we like what Vlieger and Vandam has done with their collection of handbags, iPad cases, and clutches.

The vortex of the Internet can be a weird, wonderful place. On Saturday, we aim to lighten things up with at least one fun post, and the amount of time and research it is taking this site, The Cosby Sweater Project, to recreate in art all the wonderful sweater patterns worn by the Cosby Show cast during filmming of the show must be taking a toll. But they keep at it...
