The Hot List: February 2010

February’s edition of The Hot List includes Arty Dandy, Jessica Stam’s collaboration with Rag & Bone, Raasta, Andrew Yang’s Fashion Rag Dolls, Tavi Gevinson of Style Rookie, rock stamps, Band Groupies by Guy Baxter, Paris Vogue Covers, JD Salinger and the Tim Burton exhibition at MOMA.

ART – Arty Dandy // Arty Dandy is a website that shares art books, magazines, accessories and objects that have been defined by their “audacity, poetry or their humor.” The shop is totally amazing; they have a selection of Karl Lagerfeld and David Bowie pins, plus the infamous ‘Karl Who?’ tote bags.

COLLABORATION – Jessica Stam with Rag & Bone // Model Jessica Stam has been walking for Rag & Bone since 2005 and for the past six months, she has spent time collaborating with them on four pieces for their latest collection; two jeans and two rompers, all with her model stamp of approval.

FASHION – Raasta // This Madrid-based label continues to inspire with clothes for the modern-day hippie. Their spring collection will hit the stores soon and, for this season, they have teamed up with Gonzalo Cutrina for a jewelry collection, titled ‘Extinct’, that “was inspired by some extinct animals especies who we missing a lot.”

ART – Andrew Yang’s Fashion Rag Dolls // Canadian designer/illustrator Andrew Yang has designed these fashion rag dolls for a Quebec magazine, The Block. Are they the new Barbie? They are definitely an edgier version and they know how to pull off Marc Jacobs and Lanvin so, basically, they’re bettered dressed than me. Hot!

BLOGGER – Tavi Gevinson // She’s the rising star of the fashion blogosphere. Tavi, the teen sensation behind the Style Rookie blog, is so hot right now that she has her own Wikipedia page. She has appeared on the cover of pop, been featured in Harper’s Bazaar and just covered the Paris couture shows.

IDEA – Rock Stamps // The Royal Mail in the UK have released a new set of stamps that feature classic album covers from the last 40 years, including Led Zeppelin’s IV, Pink Floyd’s The Division Bell and Let It Bleed by The Rolling Stones. If this doesn’t tempt you into sending an actual letter, what will?

FASHION – Band Groupies by Guy Baxter // Become a modern-day Penny Lane with Guy Baxter’s latest capsule collection, inspired by and named after band groupies. The collection has a healthy dose of sailor stripes and on-trend cut outs, guaranteed to lend you all the rocker-chic you need but for good measure, throw on your “I’m With The Band” tote.

BOOK – Paris Vogue Covers // A new book has just been released that celebrates the many arty and creative covers of Paris Vogue since the magazine was first published ninety years ago. With a foreword by editor Carine Roitfeld herself, this might be your chance to get a glimpse at the history of Paris Vogue without tracking down the back issues.

OBIT – JD Salinger // Sadly, JD Salinger, best known for his iconic novel, The Catcher In The Rye, died last week at the age of 91. He had become increasingly reclusive in the second half of his life and hadn’t published anything in many years. Celebrate his life by reading Catcher, followed by Franny & Zooey and Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenter.

EXHIBIT – Tim Burton at MOMA // Even if you can’t make it to Manhattan to view the exhibition – which showcases over 700 pieces of Burton’s artwork – you can check out the MOMA website for this ode to one of the most mad, off-your-rocker directors of our time and is worshiped by none other than Johnny Depp, which must say something about his cool factor.
