Gilded Age Sample Sale May 2010

Gilded Age Sample Sale

We at Kitmeout are a big fan of Gilded Age and are happy to report a sample sale for fans able to get to New York.

Last year Gilded Age started its small bi-annual Sample Sale. The events were held in March of 2009 and August 2009, and both times they were a tremendous success. It is a well curated event that includes a variety of top notch Gilded Age product at great discounts and prices. Due to popular demand and daily inquiries regarding this year’s sample sale, we have decided to hold a 3 day event at the end of the first week of May.

Bonio (Bono) to appear in Vuitton Ad?

Bono to appear in Vuitton Ad?

Louis Vuitton set the bar high for its “core values” campaign by casting the likes of former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev and, more recently, soccer legends Pelé, Diego Maradona and Zinedine Zidane, who appear playing Football in a Madrid cafe for the next series, shot by Annie Leibovitz and slated to break in June magazines. Next up is another personality, Bonio (Bono). Rumor has it the U2 front man and activist, whose eco-friendly brand Edun is partly owned by Vuitton parent LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, has agreed to appear in the next spots, which trumpet Vuitton’s travel roots and its monogram leather goods. Vuitton declined to comment.

Helena Christensen Posed Nude for Reebok

Helena Christensen Posed Nude for Reebok

This is what Reebok thinks Helena Christensen should wear to work out. Nothing but kicks! The 41-year-old model stars in the new campaign for Reebok’s EasyTone trainers, which promise to tone your legs while you walk, wearing just the sneakers. In the photograph, she’s also either attempting a set of wall push-ups or to climb a drop-down ladder while nude. We can only imagine how much of an extra challenge this workout was without the proper gear.
