Are you ready for the onslaught of FASHION WEEK COVERAGE we have coming your way? You best prepare yourselves because the shows ’n’ parties landscape this year is looking RIDICULOUS. Even the crazy invitations we’ve received thus far (everything from inflatable balloon balls to 3-D madness) are getting us in the mood for all of the outrageous style shenanigans in our immediate future. Kicking things off is the most insane invite we think we’ve ever received—a biohazard-wrapped rubber bird talon from Lady Gaga favorite Asher Levine. The New York menswear designer is set to unleash exclusive items at the Boffo-designed pop-up store for Lady Gaga Fashion Director and Mugler Creative Director Nicola Formichetti. Opening on Sept. 9 in Tribeca, not only will the store carry pieces from Levine’s collection, it will also debut limited-edition T-shirts from the Asher x Nicola collaboration (gasp!), and judging from what we’ve seen so far, these are going to be must-have items.

We love that designers are collaborating on T-shirts these days because it affords us the chance to wear something designer without having to pay steep ready-to-wear prices. What’s exciting about the Asher x Nicola line of products is that they’re unisex. There’s a burnt-out looking cross tee as well as a camouflage one, and both would look great with skinnies and boots or tucked into a miniskirt. Top them with a black leather jacket Lady Gaga-style, and you’re good to go! Also, it appears as if there’s a talon-esque keychain (necklace?) that reminds us of our weirdly dead-smelling invite. Although we’re all about the edginess of dead talon chic, we’re glad Asher and Nicola might be offering more of an interpretive choice we can not freak out about showing off.
