I Carry My Own Streetlights

I Carry My Own Streetlights

In this day and age of multi-functional lifestyles how can we expect fashion to be far behind? Wouldn’t it be tacky for a pair of socks to simply be a garment? We need to rev it up a little, maybe add kinetic theory to it and a pair of bulbs and make it headlights for our feet. Go jogging in the dark or sizzle the Milan Ramps, but the moral of the story is to “Keep on running…baby….oooo…yeah!

Not that Kind of Avatar Watch

Not that Kind of Avatar Watch

The timepiece in this post is called the “Avatar 1259B Watch.” It’s got nothing to do with the movie, but it’s no less epic. Really! You’ll have the entire world at your beckoning call when you grace their vision with this devastatingly amazing looking arm-clock. Made by the same people as what I like to call the Killer Robot Death Watch, this Avatar watch is just as metal, just as robotic, just as color bleeper intensive.

It’s Zip Up Time

It’s Zip Up Time

The Zipper Bracelet Watch is just that, of course there is no watch face; otherwise why would it be here on YD! This concept is a wide leather bracelet where the zips actually display the current time when you hit the central buttons on the wrist. Each zip displays a digit, which you are supposed to combine together to read the time. Sounds confusing right now, but hit the jump to see what I mean. Definitely easier than a Tokyo Flash!

Killer Robot Death Watch

Killer Robot Death Watch

Actually no death. None. Unless you mean the death of terrible wrist watches because this one completely DESTROYS them all! Is that what you mean? Well good! This is the “Robot 1259C Watch” and it’s going to make your arm so much more fantastic looking. Also you’ll be able to read time in such a hardcore manner that your brain might explode out of the top of your robotic head. Beware! It takes a moment to learn, a lifetime to master the awesomeness of ownership!

Move Over Iron Man

Move Over Iron Man

I just watched Iron Man 2 this weekend so it seems fitting to write about the idea of body enhancements. The Activation Suit is designed with women in mind, prepping them for the ultimate work out while minimizing fatigue and injury. The suit electronically stimulates muscle groups to relax, “stretch”, and intensify work outs. The entire surface is touch activated enabling targeted training. And of course no bionic woman would be complete without the ability to record and analyze their regimen.

5 Zaras Tall

5 Zaras Tall

Welcome to the flagship store “Zara” of the Inditex Group, a group known for several brands of fabulous fashion clothing.* What this post is about is the installation they’ve got sitting in from of their Milan store. It’s five meters tall. It’s white, colorful, and magnificent. AND it’s designed by UNStudio, a group Yanko is DEFINITELY guilty of loving for their excellence in architecture. Behold this mighty column!

No Scratch Watch

No Scratch Watch

This cool concept watch by designer Allan George is basically aimed at the youth who like to wear trendy fashion, but maybe rough with it. Although latest scratch-proof glass materials are used in Omega, Rolex and ilk, but not all brands use this for their entire collection. And a watch with scratches on its glass looks so lame! Allan’s concept simple does away with the glass face and replaces it with a plastic-rubber finish. The colored hands peep out, behind a transparent rim, giving the watch a trendy and easy look!

Swack On A Backpack Will Ya!

Swack On A Backpack Will Ya!

Necessity is the mother of invention they say, and designer Terence Simmons has firsthand experience with it. Forced to be on crutches for a while, he escaped serious injuries due to a fall he took, when his backpack’s strap got entangled in his crutches. The incident left its mark, and with creative juices on a high….he came up with the Swack! Sweater + Backpack! Revolutionary? No…but functional, cool and handy…YES!

Woodpecker Alarm

Woodpecker Alarm

A clock based on sleep with no mention to a specific time? I’m intrigued. The clock contains two alarms that signal each day at morning and evening. It indicates when to begin your sleep routine and receive a full 8 hours. The product reflects how sleep is a natural process and as such is made from natural materials. Over time the log will shed its bark as the user develops and controls their sleep rhythm. The alarm imitates a drumming woodpecker. You can even alter the type of drumming by switching out the “beak knocker”.

Enhance Time on Wrist

You’ve seen the movie Blade Runner, yes? Aka the greatest science fiction movie ever made? That’s the one. Even if you haven’t seen it, you’ve probably seen the scene where Harrison Ford is doing some police work and keeps saying “enhance. enhance.” Well that’s what’s going on here! He’d love this watch, this watch called the “Scope Watch” and it’s a total time tracker!

The Perfect Gift For Your Woman

The Perfect Gift For Your Woman

It’s quite apparent that all ladies will have a soft corner for the Accessories MP3 Player. Honestly, how many MP3 players can be as subtle and discreet as this! Fashion statement, jewelry, bling…you name it, and it’s there! I adore the little loop earring that goes into the ear as headphones, now only if Cartier or Tiffany can get a whiff of this…
