Objects by Alexander Wang
What: The (only) good kind of home invasion. The preeminent designer just released an eight-piece lifestyle collection ($29-$150) full of (surprise) dark colors and modern twists.
Why: A black faux crocodile coaster with matching embossed leather lighter, smoked glass ashtrays, and metal-edged notebooks.
Where: Online at alexanderwang.com.
What: A crowd-sourced, global feast tomorrow at noon EST. Snap a portrait of yourself and your fare, mail it in, and Brooklyn-based company Art House Co-op will create an exhibition of the world’s largest shared snack.
Why: Talk about mixed company.
Where: Online at arthousecoop.com.
DailyCandy’s Kickstarter Page
What: Help us promote start-ups and creative projects that could use seed funds. Our curated page is filled with small ideas that could go big.
Why: Incognito, a UCB Web series about two idiots in the witness protection program, and a Sewing Seeds CSA that needs some growth.
Where: Online at kickstarter.com.
What: You’re familiar with the graphic novel, but the groundbreaking book is the first composed entirely of images and appearing in both print ($11.50) and digital ($7) platforms. It’s simply stunning.
Why: An interactive love story to read, watch, hear, click — we stopped just short of kissing it.
Where: Online at itunes.apple.com and amazon.com.
Handsome Valentine EP
What: One of our favorite old-timey singers, Samantha Shelton, met up with her pal (British musician Will Knox) over the holidays, drank some whiskey, and recorded this little gift on a tape recorder with just one mic.
Why: Download the five-track album with a donation.
Where: Online at handsomeladyrecords.bandcamp.com.
