    New York designer Sally LaPointe has quickly earned a reputation for sending out brain-teasting invitations every Fashion Week (a year ago, she sent out hologrammatic mirrors; this season it was minimalist cubes sporting light spectrum trickery). The thought and detail that goes into those totems reflect her overall obsession with "futurism" and science fiction.

  • Beth Ditto Performs Madonna, Dolly Parton Covers at Fashion's Night Out
    September 9, 2:20 PM ET
    | Colleen Nika

    The Gossip's music has always been as indebted to dance as it is to the blues, so when frontwoman Beth Ditto struck out on her own for an EP of dynamite Nineties-tinged house jams, it wasn't as much an uprooting of styles as it was a savvy deviation from audience expectations. "First of all, house music, especially from the Nineties, is the gayest music ever," she told Rolling Stone last night"It's all drum and bass, which is perfect for parties."

    Cults' debut album, Cults, was a bittersweet update of the mascara-stained Fifties-prom-melodrama that bands like the Jesus and Mary Chain and Strawberry Switchblade perverted so well in the Eighties. Frontwoman Madeline Follin hase already become a talking point on New York-based fashion blogs; it turns out designer Phillip Lim is also a fan. Cults will be playing his Fashion's Night Out event at his Los Angeles flagship store tonight.

  • Designer Playlist: Costello Tagliapietra

    | Colleen Nika

    In today's Thread Count interview with New York City design duo Costello Tagliapietra, we discovered that their love of organic shapes, florals, and eco-friendly fashion protocol does not preclude them from loving all things dark, synth-fueled and industrial. As they prepare for their Spring 2012 show, which presents at Manhattan's Milk Studios next Friday, some old school Nine Inch Nails and Jesus and Mary Chain is guaranteed to be in the inspiration mix. In addition, there will be some of their most recent musical obsessions, both old and new, which they've compiled for us below in this week's Designer Playlist.

  • Costello Tagliapietra on Costuming NIN and 'Shoegaze Dressing'

    "Have dressed Nine Inch NailsMadonnaAnd Depeche Mode" isn't a bragging right likely to be listed on most New York fashion designer resumes, but that's part of what makes Costello Tagliapietra's pedigree so unique. There's also the fact that, in only six years, the Brooklyn-based, CFDA-honored duo of Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra have established one of the most progressive eco-conscious high fashion labels in the world.

  • Brazilian Electro-Rockers CSS Return With New Sound and Style
    September 2, 12:15 PM ET
    | Colleen Nika

    Brazilian band CSS brought their wisecracking brand of party rock to an international stage in 2006, just when rock bands were commanding audiences to dance. Aside from a band name inspired by Beyoncé and big tunes chock full of novelty topical value — "Meeting Paris Hilton," "Let's Make Love And Listen To Death From Above" – frontwoman Lovefoxxx's arsenal of wacky clothes and onstage humor ensured they stood out from the rest of the neon-hued nu-ravers. After CSS's second album floundered commercially, the band took some time out to regroup, and are back this summer with La Liberación, an 11-track collection of brash electro-rock.

    Lil Wayne wore leopard jeggings to the VMAs the other night and, understandably, his wardrobe choice caused a media sensation. A Twitter account in the jeggings' honor was quickly erected, while speculation pondering the origins of his attire mounted in the style blogosphere. Soon, the finer details emerged: Weezy wore ladies' jeggings from legendary punk brand Tripp NYC, and you can buy them at Karmaloop for $44. Is this a trend about to take off?

  • Petra Nemcova, James Frey Remake Iconic Maxell's Commercial

    Cassette culture is revived and well: all it needed was a supermodel, controversial author and ironically, an iPhone app to breathe new life into it. A new ad from Booktrack features Petra Nemcova and James Frey in an uncomfortably provocative master and servant scenario while paying sly homage to Maxell's classic "Higher Fidelity" commercial, which blew people away in 1983.
