Perhaps the most captivating fashion statement this season in New York was not on the runway or the street, but at the Winter Antiques Show: a modest black and white vintage dress, in mint condition and priced at $135,000, displayed by Allan Katz Americana, that was vigorously photographed, shared on Instagram and Facebook, and pinned on Pinterest.
The design was simple, with cap sleeves, a V-neck and a long full skirt. There was a cloth belt and two small cherry-red Bakelite buttons. But it was the fabric that truly astounded. It was a dynamic photographic tour of 1930s New York City: Grant’s Tomb, the Automat, the Empire State Building, illuminated marquees for a James Cagney movie, and signs for Planters Peanuts and Maybelline. In his catalog, Mr. Katz wrote, “The amazing manipulation and blending of these images create a surrealistic collage.”

BLADE + BLUE: I want sexy boxers!: Do you ever wonder why most boxer shorts are made so big & baggy? Now that jeans are being cut so slim, all that extra fabric made me feel like I was wearing a diaper! I created this line of boxers because I prefer wearing boxers but no one was making a a comfortable, slim-cut cut boxer to wear with my slim-cut jeans. I wanted my boxers to be just as sexy as my new jeans were. CHECK THE SELECTION OUT HERE.
