LOGO-COVERED BAGLAND—Remember Monogramoflauge, the new monogram + camouflage print from Louis Vuitton? That's a rhetorical question; of course you remember. Well, one intrepid reader came through with some of the first images of the Monogramoflauge bags and accessories. The note: "To think I was actually going to wait in line (on my birthday) for the Brooklyn Museum release of this hideous bag! Maybe I can see some camouflage fans liking this, but Maharishi makes better prints than this for a fraction of the cost. Hopefully some of your readers will appreciate the advance look at the line. This just shows me that LV thinks Brooklyn is too gritty to be fashionable, while LA has fun with fashion (see the moca designed bag)." [RackedWire Inbox]
NATIONAL—Surfer Laird Hamilton's clothing line Wonderwall ("a huge collection of cool and comfortable graphic tees, board shorts, cargo shorts, polo shirts, woven shirts and more for men and teens") for Steve & Barry's now has its own website. On it, you can see video of the man riding some serious waves, running around on the beach in his bathing suit, and...oh, what was the topic again? Steve & Barry's? The clothes are in stores now.
