Kickstarter of the Week: EarthBaked Footware

Call us green and groovy, but we were charmed by industrial designer Steve Boynton's idea for this lasts-a-mere-90-days bit of footwear. Made from wool and rubber, EarthBaked shoes are intended to last just a single season before you bury them in the yard or pitch them into the compost bin. He counts the idea as part of a "return-to-sender design philosophy," one that makes use of natural materials and takes into account the full life cycle of the object. More slippers than proper shoes, EarthBaked footware is ideal for hacking around the house, and insofar as they're intended to wear out after just one season, make sure you get yours for summer.

Alexander McQueen and the Meaning of Life

I did not attend “Savage Beauty,” the Alexander McQueen exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, thinking that I would fall to my knees and weep at the recognition of some finite and indefinable quality (genius?). With the awareness of fashion of an underfunded graduate student, I expected luxurious fabrics and clothing that spoke of wealth and extravagance.

best made co ditty hero

Camping Bag by Best Made Co.

Sturdy waxed canvas, brass grommets, and a woven lanyard make for one mighty fine ditty bag by Best Made Co., a modern-day retailer in the manner of dry goods stores from the past. We dig the simple construction, the fact that the bag can easily be slung over a tree branch (camping season is upon us), and that it's versatile enough to use as a day pack—just be sure to reserve this for Great Outdoors lest you want to fall into the "urban woodsman" fashion-victim trap. For more product ideas, see our green gift guide.

Palm Springs Modernism Week: The Cocktail Hour with Dwell

Mid-century modernism is a way of life in Palm Springs, California, and the community continually celebrates the look, feel, and style of the era. So when the Paul Kaplan Group and Dwell invited Modernism Week attendees to celebrate The Cocktail Hour last night, a crowd clad in mid-century garb showed up at The Fontenell. Completely restored to its mid-century glory, the estate was a family vacation home for the Max Factor family in the 1950s. Its courtyard and pool provide the perfect setting for a party. Cocktail in hand, party goers were treated to a fashion show hosted by Bill Miller of Palm Spring's vintage clothing destination Dejà Vu Vintage Finery. Models took to the stage dressed in cocktail attire of the '50s and elicited audible cries of dress envy. After the show, conversations centered on Modernism Week festivities: lectures attended, the upcoming 'it' parties, and which house tours are not to be missed.

H&M Debuts line of Bike-Friendly Clothes

Swedish clothing mega brand H&M just announced a new apparel line tailored to cyclists. Designed in collaboration with London's Brick Lane Bikes, the collection includes jackets, pants, t-shirts, blazers, button-downs, and shorts. Pieces are tailored to fit the needs of cyclists—meaning longer jackets, taped seams, and vents—and feature water-repellent and breathable materials. The line will be available in stores an online beginning March 7. It's great to see a mass-market retailer catering to the cyclists and hopefully more people will be encouraged to leave the car at home and hop on a bike instead—we only wish that women's pieces made it into the collection. Catch a video preview below and for more cycling gear, read our Dwell reports story on bikes and accessories here.
