UPDATED 02/11/10 It’s been reported that Alexander McQueen has passed away. Read the full story at the New York Times. RIP.
We were asking ourselves today who would win in a battle, gorilla or bear? Seems like what we should have been asking is whether crane or tiger would win. British designer Alexander McQueen teams up with PUMA to release a limited edition line that examines the concept of “power”. The line includes both apparel and shoes, however it’s really the shoes that has everyone talking.
For all you Bearbrick, Kid Robot, Giant Robot fans out there…Medicom Toy’s has teamed up with the team behind Tim Burton’s upcoming adaptation of Alice in Wonderland to release toy figures of the characters from the film.

BPitch Control’s head honcho Ellen Alllien recently started a fashion line full of printed, cut, and sew pieces.
From Ellen Alllien
The new ellen allien fashion spring/summer collection 2010 captures just that very feeling of the moment. As the extravagant colors of the flowers fade into the night, a sentimental new world of black and white is open to discoveries and urges of movement in all directions. Light and airy dancing freedom; black floral lace; white and black floral stitched cotton, delicate dark summer whool; hazy prints of dancing people on loose cut T-shirts; each detail transports the feeling of night flowers; leading dreamingly throughout the night…
