Over the weekend, we headed over to this year’s Renegade Craft Fair to see if it was worth it. Held at Williamsburg’s McCarren Pool, the fair had a lot of your typical homemade tote bags and overwrought tees, but we also managed to find a winner: Brooklyn-based sisters and design team Katherine and Elaine Kin, whose Kept line of dog beds virtually has the market cornered on comfy items for pets that are not embarrassing or awkward to display in your apartment. Their pillows are stamped and screened with abstract designs, and their color combinations remind us a lot of Marni. In fact, we loved their hand-screened black and cream cozy pillows so much that we bought a large one... Even though we don’t actually have a dog. Instead: we're curling up on it to read magazines. --ALISON COOL
We Read the November Fashion Magazines So You Don't Have To
For thousands of east coasters without electricity or a method of transportation to get to work, now might be an ideal time to sit around and actually read magazines. But if you still don't feel like it, don't live on the east coast, or can't find anywhere to buy said magazines (and have electricity, a necessity for reading this here online article), don't worry--we did it for you. We've culled the most interesting features, hilarious quotes and important bits of news you might otherwise miss from the fashion glossies--many of which aren't available online.
