Who can forget rad rockster Kim Gordon from Sonic Youth? We all know she's a musical prodigy, but did you know she's also a talented artist? Marni did. That's why the brand collaborated with Kim to create this exclusive Marni Kim Gordon Print Balloon Bag ($1,000). I love the balloon shape; in fact, I own a patent brown version and wear it almost every day. Money aside, would you wear this artsy bag?
Some people try to be cool; other people couldn't be uncool even if they tried. Kim Gordon falls into that latter category. She's probably most famous for playing guitar and singing in legendary art-rock band Sonic Youth, but she's also an accomplished visual artist, a clothing designer, a muse to Marc Jacobs, and easily the rockingest mom in Northampton, MA.
At 56, Kim doesn't seem to be using Botox or fillers, and she's just as striking as she was when Sonic Youth started out almost three decades ago. "I don’t make that much money," she has said with regard to high-priced anti-aging fixes. "I just hope my good bones will take me through." (Truthfully, I'd be heartbroken if Kim Gordon were to go down the preserve-youth-at-all-costs road.)
Kim's style — dirty blond shoulder-length hair, soft eyeliner, simple but chic dresses — is uniquely hers, but her Urban Outfitters clothing collaboration,
Mirror/Dash, makes it easy to take a few cues from her. Pop in Sonic Youth's latest, The Eternal, and you'll start feeling like a kool thing yourself.
When you're creative, you're creative, right? That's certainly the case for Sonic Youth lead singer Kim Gordon. Besides making music, the rocker chick is trying her hand (again — remember XGirl?) at fashion designing. She currently has an exclusive line at Urban Outfitters called Mirror/Dash, which consists of what else but minimalist, slightly obscure clothes. Considering Kim is also a curator and visual artist, her latest project probably came rather naturally to her. Hear what she has to say and shop the line.
Last night was opening night for the Metropolitan Opera in New York City and star Renée Fleming wore Christian Lacroix, Karl Lagerfeld, and John Galliano. The She even has a fragrance, handed out to concert goers, called La Voce by Renée Fleming which benefits the Met. Populism and opera may be a concept we can get behind.

Louis Vuitton seems to have quite the sense of humour with their "core values" campaign. First it was former Mikhail Gorbachev Russian president now its men who pretend to spy on the Russians. Sean Connery may have just sat for Annie Leibovitz. We suppose Ian Fleming's version of James Bond would be very into nice luggage as an idea. In other strange combinations news Sonic Youth's bassist Kim Gordon is making a line for hip moms. May be kindly suggest they check out Kirna Zabete newly launched ecommerce site?
