I am loving this new collection of t-shirts, art prints and pillows by Christopher Lee Sauvé. The black and white graphic illustrations depict fashion, music, celebrities and other pop culture icons donning Disney "Mouse Ears."
His designs, which often poke fun at Vogue editor Anna Wintour, honoring late culture icon Princess Diana and showing love for Klaus Nomi have taken on a new vision in his recently released Mad Maus: ‘a marriage between infamous Mickey ears and iconic figures, two strong graphic visuals and traits making the ultimate icon’. The illustrations are created to replicate the look of a logo, simple, graphic yet recognizable, playful as POP should be.
Some of my personal favorites:
above clockwise from upper left: Kurt Maus (Kurt Cobain), Snoop Maus, Madonna Maus and Prince Maus.
above clockwise from upper left: Mickey Maus, Mad Maus, Dali Mouse (Salvador Dali) and Andy Maus (Andy Warhol)
above clockwise from upper left: Soo Maus (Soo Lucas aka Soo Catwoman), Deitrich Maus (Marlene Deitrich), Ziggy Maus (David Bowie's alter ego, Ziggy Stardust) and Marilyn Maus (Marilyn Monroe)
above clockwise from upper left: Edith Maus (Edith Head), Apfel Maus (Iris Apfel), Bowery Maus (Leigh Bowery) and Lil' Edie Maus (Edie Bouvier from Grey Gardens)

You may know it as Marry, Murder, F*ck or Marry, F*ck or Kill. Either way, the addictive game of determining which, from three members of the opposite sex, you'd like to make love, make a lifetime commitment or simply eradicate from earth has been turned into a well-designed and clever online site and shop.
Advertising copywriter Thom Cordner and Art Director Amanda Mourenza pooled their sick sense of humor and their smart sense of style to design The MFK Daily (and the goodies that go with it). An appealing looking, easy to navigate website featuring the MFK game for both male and female players - straight, gay or otherwise - with seemingly endless options.
The clever trios, from which you are to choose, are grouped by everything from such general categories as Athletes and Politicians to as specific as your favorite Irish actors or the same actress in three different roles.
Not only can you play the game, but as soon as you've chosen, you can see where your own tastes lie in comparison with others who play:
Not big on online game playing? Do not fret, they sell well-designed hilarious card versions of the game that also do double duty as flirtational devices when left, boxes checked, at the proper places - or in the proper hands.
MFK Daily Cards:
There are over twenty different 1" x 2.5" cards and more to come.
Not to be outdone by the MFK cards and the website, Thom and Amanda spared no expense - or talent- when it came to desiging a large selection of hip t-shirts and women's panties.
Fabulous MFK T-shirts and underwear.
Colorful neon flocked appliques of the game name or icons are available on various colored shirts for both men and women:
T-shirts in which you can tick off any box or none at all:
And other fun MFK Daily tees in men's or women's styles with lots of color options:
And black or white women's undies:

Steve McQueen was the embodiment of rugged sexiness. The fact that he was as masculine offstage as on, makes his appeal timeless. So it's no wonder that clothing company Barbour has introduced a Steve McQueen Collection consisting of good-looking outerwear, rough-hewn workshirts, knits and tees. Created to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the International Motorcycle jacket, the iconic British Brand designed this limited edition capsule collection featuring the King of Cool.
Items in the new collection are worth a gander and are playfully named after his movies or interests. Sweaters, outerwear, buttoned work shirts and t-shirts make up the small line. Although the t-shirts are nothing to write home about (colored tees with images of McQueen and Barbour International printed upon them), the jackets even have inner linings which feature black and white images of the handsome legend.
Here's proof that cool doesn't go out of style:

Below is a reprinted interview with Chad McQueen, the son of the film star, motorcycle racer, stuntman and style icon.
Your father is often described as the 'King of Cool'. How would you describe his dress style?
Classic, elegant, cool and timeless.
Why do you think your father's dress style is still relevant today?
Cool doesn’t go out of style.
Knowing the heritage of the brand and the fact that your father is one of its most famous wearers, what does Barbour mean to you? Is it a brand you feel particularly aligned with? Do you wear Barbour yourself?
I have some great memories with the Barbour jackets. They were always around and I remember the way they smelled, the way they felt, and the weight of them. I do wear Barbour and of course it’s because of the images of my dad on the Triumph. It’s such a cool image that it’s burned in to my mind forever.
Back in the 60s when your father competed in the ISDT, he wore Barbour. You are also well known for racing 2 and 4 wheels. How did you and your father choose the clothes that you wore to race cars/bikes?
Sponsorships started coming in to play in the 70s so that really dictated what I wore while I raced, but I’m sure that Bud’s influence was a big part of my dad’s decision to wear Barbour.
What do you like best about the collaboration with Barbour?
I am happy to be part of the 75th anniversary of the motorcycle jacket with this exciting collaboration. All of the designs capture my dad’s sense of style and the timing is perfect - Chad McQueen for Barbour
