When They Were Young

Punk History Goes Up in Smoke

The Sex Pistols’ debut single Anarchy in the U.K. was released 40 years ago. To mark the occasion, Joe Corré — son of punk icons Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren, the band's manager — set fire to $7 million of rare punk memorabilia, along with effigies of politicians, on a boat on the Thames. The blaze is said to have included an original acetate copy of Anarchy in the U.K., clothing belonging to Westwood and Johnny Rotten (Sex Pistols' lead singer), and a Sid Vicious doll.

Comme des Garçons PLAY

Finally, Comme des Garçons Emoji

Living up to the name, Comme des Garçons PLAY now has its own emoji set, launched today. And it's not just a prototype for future use; you can download it now from iTunes and immediately begin using it in your very important texts.

The label's iconic red-and-black Play heart logo has been emojified into 24 distinct emotions, ranging from Teardrop to Birthday. Among the more unconventional are Martini and Smog Mask.

The timing coincides with the holidays (yep, there's also a Santa emoji), but don't tell us they weren't really thinking about the Met Gala, in their honor this year (and co-sponsored by Apple). We have no doubt every one of those red-carpeteers will find occasion to furiously tap out the complete alphabet.
