    There are few travel-related headaches more annoying than arriving at your destination only to realize that every single item of clothing you've brought has been wrinkled, tortured, and smushed into oblivion. If you're the type to treat your clothes — jeans included — as delicately as you treat yourself, we beg you to check out this insane piece of luggage.

    Luxury furniture maker Method Design teamed up with Denham denim to come up with a wooden steamer trunk to house, transport, and pamper your beloved jeans, in serious style. "Worshipping tradition while destroying convention," the duo spent over 300 hours constructing a trunk that's unlike anything you would normally think to shlep your jeans around in.

    The solid-ash wood luggage case is light, thanks to a plane wing skeletal framework and birch skins, lined with hand-stitched leather seams, and it comes furnished with a denim supply carousel (spare buttons, rivets, thread spools), garment-securing methods, stacking shelves, and a tiny work station. Though it's probably not as handy for a weekend trip as your Samsonite, serious denim-philes might consider this their version of the Louis Vuitton trunk. Although, you can't actually buy the trunk, since there's only one in existence at present. You can, however, check out the prototype at the 100% Design Exhibition if you're in London between September 22 and 25, in Earls Court.

How Bad Is Expired Makeup Really?

This time every year, we read the same story about how vital it is to spring-clean our makeup bags. If we don’t heed the warnings, we (allegedly) risk nasty breakouts and eye infections or, worse, skin parasites and loss of vision. It all seems a bit dramatic, no? When was the last time you got an infection from read

It's Happening: Steven Alan X Dr. Scholl's

Now that “ugly,” comfort-first shoes are the new normal (or, rather, the new normcore), we’ve been reintroduced to brands that haven't been in our wardrobe rotation for some time. While Birkenstocks and Tevas deserve plenty of cred, one of our favorite shops is making damn sure we don’t forget about one of the read
