French designer David Turpin has brought back the traditional 1950â€™s classic Bakelit telephone to life.
This colorful accessory is designed to give mobile device users and chatterboxes maximum comfort and convenience while looking fantastic. In addition to this it offers a full range of features to device users; it connects to the device using a 3.5mm jack. This will allow a Pop handset user to make and receive calls through the handset. In addition to this POP comes with a USB adaptor allowing you to attach the phone directly to a computer. This means that you can add a bit of style to your skype or google talk (VOIP) convos. In addition to this you can now use all other functions on your mobile device while talking.
Not only is the POP handset fun and useful but it also reduces the impact of radiation emitted by mobile phones. Since the POP handset reduces your direct contact with the mobile device it reduces the risk for cancer.
The Innovative .925 Figaro Chain Beaded With Black Onyx
From the basics of a black onyx gemstone, comes a metaphysical power of inner strength. A symbolic stone that derives from Brazil, India and Madagascar. The matte, unpolished finish is the unique quality of the stone. If you desire a shinier, darker appearance just rub the surface with a little baby oil or wear it, the oils from your skin gives the same effect.
Grinded to perfection, these solid round matte onyx beads are delicately hand drilled to a 2mm hole. Enabling a 1.8mm Figaro .925 silver chain to slip perfectly through the beads. This elegant chain design alternates to two or more smaller circular links, with a longer oval link, similar to the Curb style chain. The Figaro chain actually originated from Italy and it’s name was inspired by the Operas of Rossini based on French Plays.
A bit of history in the making of black onyx beads, combined with a modern edition of the Dyoh Figaro collection.
The look: Urban Yacht Club.

DOVER, NJ, OCTOBER 22, 2010 â€” Adding a bit of absurdist humor to the most recognizable G-Shock silhouette, Casio G-Shock joins forces with Adult Swim in a co-branded partnership that will bring the cult classic Aqua Teen Hunger Force to the watch makerâ€™s DW6900AS-8 model.

Cloaked in a white case with hot pink and black accents, the DW6900AS-8 pays tribute to the infamous Aqua Teen Hunger Force team made up of three human-sized food products – Meatwad, Frylock and Master Shake, and, with one press of a button, the watch face summons the iconic Ignignokt face. The watches were designed and created by Adult Swim designers Brandon Lively and Jacob Escobedo who derived inspiration from the Aqua Teen Volume 6 DVD cover. (more…)
LIFEandDEATH Buyer Chats with John Varvatos
by Sam Glaser. Wed, Oct 27, 2010 (8 p.m.)
Itâ€™s hard to talk American fashion without mentioning John Varvatos. After helping craft powerhouse brands like Polo Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein, Varvatos moved out on his own with an eponymously named company and clear focus on incorporating rock into fashion. On October 21, Varvatos hosted a party at his Forum Shops location, helping customers style their winter wardrobes while sipping Russian Standard vodka cocktails. Weekly caught up with the rock-star designer, who stole the show in a gray, suede leather trench coat.
Sam Glaser: You do a monthly Sirius XM show called Born in Detroit. Rock â€™nâ€™ roll is clearly part of your passion-set. How has rock influenced you as a designer?
John Varvatos: Rock is part of my DNA and a huge part of my everyday life. Iâ€™d say itâ€™s been my biggest influence outside of family. I donâ€™t design without music. Itâ€™s an energy sourceâ€”part of my engine.
Sam Glaser: Just one year after you launched the John Varvatos brand, you started a collaboration with Converse. Howâ€™d that come about?
John Varvatos: Itâ€™s been a highlight. They contacted me having never worked with a designer before. They had been waiting for the right one. Iâ€™ve been a fan my whole lifeâ€”Converse is truly iconic. Nine years in, weâ€™re in 40 countries. Every time I work thereâ€™s a new highlight.
Sam Glaser: Whatâ€™s the next collaboration?
John Varvatos: No more. Converse is a perfect fit, and I canâ€™t imagine any other.
Sam Glaser: Youâ€™re celebrating the 10-year anniversary of your brand with an ad campaign featuring a collage of musical artists youâ€™ve worked with during your career. Which two are the most quintessentially John Varvatos?
John Varvatos: Perry Farrell and Lenny Kravitz
Sam Glaser: In your perfect world, how would you define the John Varvatos legacy?
I learned a lot from iconic American designers (like Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren). Ralph has an incredible life and style legacy. I want to be an iconic American designer, globally.
