…The Porsche Design Cayenne looks blackalicious?

Porsche Design Cayenne

The Porsche Cayman S Design Edition proved that the stunner from Stuttgart looks even better in tones of black, and apparently Porsche agreed, because they went on to create a Boxster S Design Edition, and now, a Cayenne GTS Design Edition.

The all black beauty gets special black striping on the doors and hood, along with 21-inch SportPlus wheels that are painted to match.

Inside, it’s plenty of carbon fiber and black leather to coddle and comfort the driver, and ‘Porsche Design Edition 3’ badging can be found both inside and out.

The big selling point however is that in addition to the SUV, buyers get Porsche Design accessories that match, including a chronograph watch and a four piece luggage set.

Not fond of black?

That’s just too damn bad.

…Vespa makes the GTS 300 scooter for men?

Vespa GTS 300

Apparently Vespa has finally figured out that with a little bit of black paint, some subtle accents, and their most powerful engine to date, they can probably sell the thing to guys just as well as they can sell it to girls.

The Vespa GTS 300 Super features a 22hp, 278cc, four-stroke, single cylinder, liquid-cooled, electronic injected engine that propels the man-mobile to a top speed of around 80 mph (Though I hope to god no one tries to top speed one of these things!) while getting a rather thrifty 70 mpg.

Additional features include 12-inch alloy rims, double-disc brakes, red springs, a new grill, and plenty of cargo room to hold your man pur… man bag.

…Aaron Rose makes some inspiring kicks?

Aaron Rose Shoes

Aaron Rose and DC Shoes have teamed up to create the Rose Mid as part of DC’s Artist Projects.

The shoe, which is available in either a black or wheat colorway, features an interior lined with plaid fabric and custom designed gum soles, with a repeating teardrop pattern that has a single clear teardrop to expose the cork interior.

The shoes come in a custom designed shoe bag, along with a mini ‘zine of Rose’s work, and a Rose designed box.

It’s all designed to pay tribute to the mod, punk and Goth styles that inspired Aaron as a kid, and made him what he is today.

It’s a testament to all the collaborations I’ve had throughout the years that have brought me to this position where someone like DC would come and ask me to make a shoe.”

…TheBlackApp is coming?

The Black App

TheBlackApp is calling itself “The first iPhone consumer network”, and since “space is limited”, they encourage you to register in advance for a launch date of June 5. (They also assure you that, no, this is not a stunt.)

There are three different levels of TheBlackApp (Black, Gold, and Silver) and it looks like the benefits will depend on which level you are a part of, so sign up now to reserve your spot.

…It’s Things Thursday: Jawbone?


Except for a lack of loud, the Aliph Jawbone has always been the best Bluetooth headset around.

So how do you make the best even better?

Simple: Release a beautifully themed line of limited edtions.

Called Sweet Talk, Dirty Talk, and Trash Talk (gold, black and white respectively) they each have a design that smoothes out the usual Jawbone dimples, and features ‘hieroglyphics’ to match the description.

Which one are you?
