Justin Melnick is a digital artist/ photographer whose latest work is featured in an exhibition titled, Arm Me. Having spent some time in the Middle East, Melnick has imagined what war arms would look like if some of the most renowned designers like; Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Chanel, and Pucci had input. The outcome is a thought-provoking series of posh ammunition, definitely worth a peek. This exhibition starts September 2nd at Gallery 385 in New York City.

London native, David Saunders, presents the autumn/winter 2008 collection from his label, David David. Fusing together so many different textiles, David David is a perfect example of controlled chaos. Between his womens and mens line, the sportswear inspiration is completely present yet there seems to be a chunk of inspiration coming from elsewhere making the garments rather unique, even when a complete outfit is comprised of the same pattern. The collection is available at select retailers world wide including the famous Dover Street Market.

With the upcoming H&M store opening up in Tokyo, Comme des Garcons designer Rei Kawakubo has been chosen to do a line consisting of women, mens and even kids clothing. Known for their avant garde style, the ready to wear collection from H&M will be a bit more subdued yet keeping the Kawakubo touch. The collaboration sounds like a pleasant way to open up shop in Japan, yet somehow we still wish they could offer these designers for the US market, as it would be the closet we can come to affording Comme des Garcons. Be sure to check out the pictures from the collection after the jump.
