"Well, I see you got your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat", that's what Dylan sang to his Blonde On Blonde muse back in 1966. Nowadays, he should take into account to record a new version of his "Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat" and consider changing the title to "Crocodile-Skin Pill-Studded Backpack"; after all, this garment also "is really that expensive kind".
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have re-edited the The Row crocodile skin backpack that sold out last year. This time they counted with artist Damien Hirst, who drew upon one of his most recurring motifs: the pills (view The Void, Pharmacy restaurant...). Doubled the price of the previous version, will this drug appliqué accesory priced $55,000 sell out this year as well?
We all have some jeans, denim shirt or jacket in the very end of our wardrobes that remains there and never is worn. We sometimes rediscover them, and after looking at their old-but-not-vintage-yet style we get excited at the thought of customising it. Who's not looked for denim DIY tutorials online?
Dip dye, waxed, studded, ripped... endless possibilities that look great in blogs but we're too lazy to carry out in the end.
Well, for the joy of us lazy and not very skilled old denim holders you can have your denim pieces customised with the only trouble of having to post it...and pay of course!
Denim Refinery offers you the possibility of choosing what your garment will look like (laser print, distressed, different colour...), leave the decission to the proffesionals and be surprised by the result, or even buy cool customised pieces from their e-shop.
