High-concept Incognito Watch is also highly invisible

Would you hand over £275,000 of your own cash in return for a product that you’d not even seen, let alone layed your hands on it so you can have a tinker with it? No? Well, there’s a surprise. However, that’s exactly what one doofus with more money than sense has done, buying a timepiece that has yet to be …

Hussein Chalayan’s collection combines Tranformers technology, high fashion and nudity

Designers of haut couture have been responsible for some pretty weird, wonderful and creative designs in the past. However, none have been so "innovative" and forward thinking as the outfits being created by left-field designer Hussein Chalayan. Combining Transformers style technology and high fashion, Hussein has managed to come up with some pretty far out designs. And yes, I know …

Talk Like A Pirate Day: Insert pirate related word/pun/phrase here

Avast me hearties! Yarrr! Splice the mainbrace! Shiver me timbercles! Dead man’s chest, etc. etc. Right, now that’s out of the way, I can tell you all about Talk Like A Pirate Day in the Queen’s own English. Or my loose grasp of it.

Beckham in the buff once again, selling the Motorola Razr 2

What’s the deal with Beckham getting his kit off for every advert he does? I can understand him donning his birthday suit to avoid splodging Gillette shaving gel all over his L.A. Galaxy jersey, and you can’t promote undies without first whipping your trousers off. But does he really need to get nekkid to sell mobile phones? I’m sure there …

Crocs get all shirty with new material designed for clothing

Crocs, the company notorious for making those rubber shoes that vegetarians and middle-class yummy mummies seem to be fond of, have turned their attentions to making shirts. Thankfully its not the sort of shirt that you’d necessarily wear to torture garden, being made out of a completely different material to the footwear. I bet you filthy lot are disappointed now, …

Joachim Löw, the indiest football coach around?

The Guardian this morning likened German coach Joachim Löw’s look to that of a Libertines tribute band member. I think they may have taken it a bit far but it’s true that he has something of the indie about him. In his white shirt and silk scarf he kind of looks like the type of older guy you see in …

Uniqlo serves up a heaping slice of denim

There’s been a big fuss made about Uniqlo recently, and there’s even more of a kerfuffle thanks to their new denim range. Reasonably priced the range comes in a variety of fits and washes. I’m loving the slim fit straight jeans in grey (£24.99) and the deep indigo selvedge regular fit jeans (£39.99). I can see what the fuss is …

Pharrell sports awesome t-shirt at Superbad premier

Spotted Pharrel Williams wearing this super sweet tee at the Superbad premier (makes it sound as though I was there) and I instantly fell in love with it – the tee, not Pharrell. While he should have swapped the shorts for something a bit more formal and completely lost the hat, I can’t fault the shirt or his baby-blue kicks. …

CECT W100 wrist phone

Just like the concepts of flying cars zooming through the sky or hand-held lasers that can stun a perp at 100 paces, the idea of a wrist mounted communication device has been just that – an idea. The reality is that "flying" cars can barely get off the ground, "hand-held" lasers need to be coasted around on trolleys and wrist-phones …

Peterborough man threatened with fine over bad t-shirt

August is traditionally silly season for news, and this is by far the silliest story I’ve seen.
