Like your dessert with a little edge? Amble over to Chrome Hearts in the Design District. French macarons specialist Ladurée has teamed up with the luxury accessories store to serve up treats in the ground floor cafe. Look for a limited-edition box featuring rock ’n’ roll-inspired illustrations from designer Pete Punk. “In this space, it’s all about creating a mood and a feel that’s constantly fresh and inspiring,” says Chrome Hearts’ co-owner Laurie Lynn Stark.
For the ultimate Kanye West fan, here’s an idea: Dressing The Yeezy Way, a paper doll book that will remind you of your days in elementary school art class. Sort of. Illustrators provide the accessories — a watch, sunglasses, fake LV backpack — you do the cutting and make the outfit. We’re so sure the flashy fashionista/new dad himself would approve. http://sugoibooks.bigcartel.com/product/kanye-west-paper-doll
Victoria Beckham did her part for World AIDS Day 2015 last Tuesday. The designer, who is a goodwill ambassador for the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV and AIDS (UNAIDS), created a limited-edition white T featuring a hand-drawn heart face with the organization’s red ribbon logo as a pair of eyes. All proceeds of the $140 shirt go to the cause. victoriabeckham.com
