Soon,we´ll all be wearing Wham!

We know that the 80's is as current again as Susan Boyle but I never thought it can step up to another level like using an iconic remnant of this era as fashion accoutrement--cassette tapes.

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 . Yes, you can hum your Total Eclipse of the Heart without annoying some store clerk this time.

R.I.P. Korean Supermodel Daul Kim

What's happening in the world? While 12 year old kids starve themselves to become the next stars of the catwalk, top models hang themselves to death!

Described as Karl Lagerfeld's new muse, Daul modelled for top brands such as Chanel, Dries Van Noten and Lagerfeld.

Daul also wrote an invitation only blog called I like to Fork Myself ( where she chronicled her poignant and sad life as a supermodel.

Yes it must be lonely at the top. Girls, be careful what you wish for. You can a supermodel at 15 and retire at 20 just when you begin to have cellulites like Gemma Ward or go on be crazy and iconic as Naomi Campbell.

Whatever it is, choose life.

Rest in Peace Daul.
