Last week , Martin Margiela launched its latest bling collection designed by (another 80's-90's figurehead) R.E.M's Michael Stipe featuring the 199 limited edition microcassette. With 32 ways of wearing them making this tiny cassette as versatile as Meryl Streep, and as crazy as Lady Gaga.
And the cassette trend is becoming fiercer. Introducing Alyce Santoro's Sonic Fabric collection. Yes!--Clothes, scarves and neckties all made from actual cassette tapes. Genuis isn't it. Now you can literally wear your favorite 80's idols. All your Duran Durans, Eurythmics and Spandau Ballets in blue, gray, orange and other different colours. How cool is that?
That's not all. It comes with some interesting tidbits as well. The Sonic Fabric necktie for example is "recorded with an intricate collage of sound prior to weaving" and "are intended to emit good vibes into the vicinity of the wearer".
Wow. I want some Debbie Gibson (Electric Youth) necktie for some good vibrations, indeed.
All products are made in the US and available online at http://www.sonicfabric.com/ . Yes, you can hum your Total Eclipse of the Heart without annoying some store clerk this time.
