Really High Fashion

Beat this toy Brad and Angelina! French Luxury Brand Hermés teamed up with Eurocopter to introduce the “L’helicoptre par Hermès”, the most tricked-out, super-stylish way to fly since the Spruce Goose (look it up). This unprecedented collaboration started as just a design exercise. Italian designer Gabriele Pezzini was brought in to work with Eurocopter engineers and Hermès craftsmen to create the final design.

Form Follows Fashion

Form Follows Fashion

Not a lot of fashion pieces manage to catch our eyes here at Yanko Design. There are of course the few exceptions like the Geek Chic Keyboard Jeans, and the Kevlar Hoodie, but this piece by Sartoria Vico called “Sciarpone” makes a slightly more palatable fashion statement. This clever convertible sweater/scarf design made of 100% Merino wool is perfect for the ever changing moods of my girlfriend and unpredictable spring time weather here in Los Angeles.

Body Armor + Fashion Design = Armorni?

Body Armor + Fashion Design = Armorni?

Who says protecting yourself from sniper attacks or chemical warfare needs to be ugly business? Certainly not Dutch designer Tim Smit. His “Urban Security Suit” will be all the rage in a war zone near you. Made of stylish neoprene and strategically lined with body molded kevlar, this runway show stopper will be THE must have accessory for your next war, skirmish, struggle, conflict, combat zone or civil strife you find yourself in or starting. Aeon Flux eat your heart out.

Mirror Mirror in my hand? Who’s the fairest in the land?

Mirror Mirror in my hand? Who’s the fairest in the land?

Ok, so we aren’t talking about Snow White and how the wicked woman having to fill her ego by hearing from a talking mirror, but we are talking about a mirror that can give us a change in how we see ourselves. These “one of a kind” hand mirrors which are so properly named “The Mr.” and “Thug Life” allow you to choose who you want to be for the day.

Sewing Machine Decor

Sewing Machine Decor

Winner of the GOLD Prize contest by Aisin Seikin, the XL table concept sewing machine is designed to look like a piece of purposeful decor when not in use. To me it still looks like a sewing machine folded up but it does possess clean sleek lines so if you’ve got a modern home and you love to sew, why not right?

Hand-Held Narcissism

Hand-Held Narcissism

In these fast paced days of RSS feeds, text messaging and pneumatic wine bottle openers, it is always nice to see a young designer take a risk and go against the grain by reinterpreting an almost forgotten and completely ubiquitous item like the hand held mirror.

Flat Folded Shoe Is Like Easy Origami

Flat Folded Shoe Is Like Easy Origami

The EIN/TRITT shoe concepts shows how modern technology can take shoe manufacturing to the next paradigm. Flat shoe patterns with reinforced parts get folded and fixed by the consumer. Production and shipping costs are significantly reduced. From an aesthetic point of view, it has a very geometric and architectural form that’ll definitely grab you some attention. I wonder what Nike or Adidas could do with this technology.

RetroVision

RetroVision

Everything old is new again, especially when it comes to these very retro inspired sunglasses. Where normally tinted UV blocking lenses would cut the glare of the sun, these “Reed Screen Sunglasses” by Sang Jang Lee use the ancient eastern practice of reed screens to block the sun’s blinding glare. In case you are in the dark about reed screens, they are those roll up window blinds made of peeled reed stems.

Smarter Clothing Care Labels

Smarter Clothing Care Labels

Coming from a fashion design background, I find it surprising 70% of people don’t read the care labels and when they do, it’s usually too late. That’s why something like the clothTag concept might make caring for clothes a lot easier.

Why Not Take It With You?

Why Not Take It With You?

I know there are times that you are out at a restaurant and want to take the drinks you have with you. What happens when you are walking out to the car with too many things in your hands and you wish you would have asked for a drink carrier? Now we have the answer for you.

Like Jekyll And Hyde

Like Jekyll And Hyde

Prescription lenses are expensive so it’s not often we can afford more than a single pair. Unfortunately that means being tethered to one frame style. Switch Glasses gives you at least two options to fit your mood and lifestyle. The design adds pivots and hinges to the arms and lens of a pair of glasses. By flipping them around, you can take advantage of two different frame colors. Maybe one for work and a funkier one for a night out.
