Rebecca Turbow

Manhattan based designer, Rebecca Turbow, knows a thing or two about being chic. Famous for donning monochromatic outfits (a few years ago it was all turquoise, now she has subtly gone for shades of grey), Turbow’s Fall 09′ collection is a pleasing array of sophisticated charcoals and black, done in smart shapes and adorable detailing. Turbow can’t help but follow her family trade- having learned about fashion from her leather-smith father (whose own father was a furrier), Turbow learned to sew at a young age, and throughout high school insisted on strictly wearing her own fashions. Coming a long way from her days of college clothing design, Turbow has maintained her mod aesthetic. While Turbow draws inspiration from her longtime idol, early 1960’s “father of the space age” designer Andre Courreges, and finds new inspiration in Hussein Chalayan (the British/Turkish designer known for his modern architectural designs), she insists that it is really New York City that inspires her work. Her clothes have matured into a collection of pieces that are classy and sexy in the demurest of ways- suggestive cutouts on the shoulder of a dress, a collarbone exposing shift dress, and a feminine take on the boyfriend staples- soft t-shirts tucked into slim, high-waisted, cropped trousers. Using fabrics ordered from NYC’s very own Garment District, Turbow dynamically combines cotton, wool, and silk for her Fall collection, creating sweet silhouettes with a gathered bubble skirt, waist defining dresses that can easily go from day to night, and unexpected but adorable petal aplicaes draped down the breast of a simple silk shirt. In a time when the world seems to be falling apart, and one has to stop and ask themselves if fashion is all that important right now, Turbow is confident in her career choice. “You can’t feel bad about what you do. This is greater than me. It’s what I was meant to do.” Rebecca Turbow is being sold exclusively at Candy Store, Otte, and Pixie Market in New York.

Grnappletree is crafted, developed, and released by a team composed of many different backgrounds and lifestyles. We are the common man making clothes for the common person.

Rebuild the middle class, fight Hypocrisy.

The Check Button Up is built in Los Angeles using 100 percent cotton Gingham fabric. We have decided to leave this shirt pocketless in order to maintain a dressier look. The soft breezy weight and feel of this shirt makes it perfect for a day at the office or a breezy night of walking the dog.

The Grid Button Up features Los Angeles construction on a unique short sleeve dress shirt. The grey cotton gingham checkered pattern is subtly offset with a white cotton insert of the top 1/4 of the collar. This shirt does feature a pocket but it is built into the shirt as a slide slit. Hide your hand or hide your wallet.

The Clear Button Up is similar in construction to the Grid Button Up. White cotton fabric throughout with a subtle grey cotton insert in the collar. Clean up. Grow up. Dress Up.

The Pure Hoody is available in both white and black colorways. This concept piece is built in Los Angeles starting with a black fleece zip up hoody. We decided to remove the sleeves, add epaulettes to the shoulders, and three D Ring connect straps. Strap in and go.

The Rebel Jacket is our reference to the motorcycle lifestyle that is quickly growing in fashion. This twill jacket features an offset zipper placement with some extremely unique cuffs which zip only a short distance up the arm. This piece also boasts two colorways, white or black, and is made in Los Angeles. Vroom Vroom.

TO CA Mininmalist Wood Clock

From the creative mind of Takumi, the TO:CA Wood Clock is ingenious in its minimalist, yet modern design. When off, the clock looks like a simple block of wood, but when activated you can clearly see the time in bright LED lights coming from inside the wood.

Making of the Longchamp Campaign Feat. Kate Moss

Calvin Harris

It's hard to say exactly how Scottish singer/swinger Calvin Harris knows just what was "Acceptable in the '80s" — especially since he was born in '84 — but his hug-happy hit single is so spot-on, it doesn't really matter. And if "The Girls" seems tailor-made for a Robert Palmer-era American Apparel runway, that only makes the cheek that much sexier. Fun, funny, and insistently danceable, Harris' music is a throwback that will propel you right into tomorrow.

Pas d'un

A few years back, Pierre Andre Senizergues—the French-born founder of skate brand Etnies—needed a tux for the red carpet at Cannes. He was there promoting Leo's eco-doc The 11th Hour, which he helped finance, therefore his penguin suit had to be (so to speak) penguin-agreeable. His solution? Making one from organic wool, and even using old cassette tapes for the lapels. (They help with shine, apparently.) Now that one-off has inspired a full-on menswear line, called C-Pas. All the clothes are made from organic or reused materials, including wool coats cut from old army blankets and suit linings made from old shirts donated by Senizergues' NYC customers. For now, only clients can get the custom-made suits, but the full ready-to-wear line—including shirting, outerwear, and knits, with suits and tuxes produced by Martin Greenfield—will be available in June at Paris boutique Colette.
