Beautifully crafted jewelry created out of recycled Barbie body parts by New York based designer, Margaux Lange. The craftsmanship looks amazing! These are definite conversation pieces, especially the doll breast necklaces and butt bracelet.
More about Margaux and her series:
Margaux Lange’s Plastic Body Series art jewelry collection utilizes salvaged Barbie doll parts in combination with sterling silver and pigmented resins. The series is a result of Lange’s desire to re-purpose mass produced materials into handmade, wearable art. It is meant to examine and celebrate her own as well as pop culture’s relationship with the icon known simply as: Barbie.

Medical illustrator Emily Evans has released a range of exciting Mexican Day of the Dead Sugar Skull wallpaper adding to her range of homewares. This includes a series of histology dessert plates which sold out within hours of going on sale at our Street Anatomy Gallery Store.
The elegant design of the Sugar Skull is representative of the Mexican ‘Day of the Dead’ celebrations, the folkloric skull an iconic symbol of life and death. The intricately illustrated skull has been given a sophisticated twist by replicating it in gold on a rich matt dark charcoal, making it a luxurious addition to any interior.
Available at the Street Anatomy Gallery Store!
Although we have tried our best to give the most accurate photographic representation of the wallpaper, we urge you to buy a sample to ensure you know what you are purchasing as returns will not be accepted unless the wallpaper is faulty. We are not liable for any damage or problems caused by faulty hanging. Hanging instructions are included with each purchase.
It is the responsibility of the customer to have correctly measured the amount of wallpaper needed, this is not a service we offer.

I noticed my road bike gathering a fine layer of dust after its lengthy hibernation this winter. I’m not one to suffer through biking in Chicago through the freezing cold and snow, but it’s about this time that I start getting the itch to get back on my bike. After recently rediscovering this muscle skin biking suit we posted about back in 2009, I am even more excited to get back into riding.
Warsaw based designer Tomek Pietek designed the prototype of this suit a while back and it has only recently been put into production and available for sale. It is simply stunning and sure to turn heads whether you’re dodging cars down busy city streets or in a tough Cyclocross race.
Tomek describes the idea,
The idea of the muscleskinsuit came to our minds as a natural continuation of our passion for cycling and graphic design. Our own MTB racing experiences led us to create this original sports apparel. Firstly for private use. Then motivated by the growing interest of fellow bikers we decided to work some more on this project. Our goal was to share the effects of our work and to make the suit available to a wider range of cyclists from around the world. We established cooperation with best Polish sportswear manufacturers and later completed the collection with the long version of the suit, the arm and the leg warmers. We are planning to extend our offer in the near future.

Now how amazing are these? Shop Bop is selling these Skeleton High Top Sneakers, created by Be&D, and even though I’m not a big sneaker person, I’m kind of in love with them. I have some very specific friends in mind that should own these. You know who you are. Dress them up, dress them down. Too. Much. Fun.

When I stumbled upon these earlier this week, my first thought was “who wouldn’t want these?” Calvin Klein, you’ve done a body good. These great X-Ray inspired briefs are the epitome of cool. If the ladies of the world can easily find beautiful lingerie, why can’t the men have a little fun as well? It’s hard to pick a favorite from the three. I found them at Nordstrom (see here, here, and here) but I’m sure these limited edition skivvies could be found elsewhere. Enjoy!
