Warby Parker has made their mark. After a successful store opening in the heart of the Meatpacking District in Manhattan, Warby Parker has launched their 60’s inspired 2013 Fall Collection that’ll leave you feeling that never having gotten lasik was the best decision of your life.

Alright alright…so there’s all this controversy about Yoko Ono’s new line of menswear for Opening Ceremony. In no way am I an authority of fashion, but I have to say, LOVE the graphic play!

Louis Vuitton has launched their newest collection with a flair of Japanese funk/genius with artist, Yayoi Kusama. Everything from the facade of the building to clothes and accessories have been covered with Kusama’s iconographic polka dot print design. If this isn’t enough, you can also see an exhibition at the Whitney Museum of Kusama’s Fireflies of the Water until September 30.
I’m currently immersed with a food project and keep finding myself subconsciously connecting the ideas of food and fashion. (For those of you looking for more food inspiration, follow Print Matter’s Food board on Pinterest!)

I was in the Meatpacking District this past weekend to walk into what looked like Michelangel’s David in a Missoni print body suit?!?! Is that possible? I should know by now, that in NYC, anything is possible. Spanish artist, dEmo and Missoni have worked together in suiting up a 15 foot tall statue letting the public know, that even David can make a fashion statement.
