That Socks

September 23rd, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

When our buddy Dave sent us these Hokusai-print socks (pictured above) via Fashionably Geek, I got crazy excited.

Immediately, I was like, “I want In the Hollow of a wave off the coast of Kanagawa on my tootsies!” Why? FRACTALS! Perfect fractal geometry as presented in art, right on my feet! Who wouldn’t want that (mathletes, c’mon, you’re with me here)??

Then I took a closer look at the landscape. That’s not the coast of Kanagawa.

Then a closer look at the waves. Those aren’t fractals.

So hunh. They’re just doodley Hokusai-print socks.

I guess that’s still cool.

Just not as cool.

Or not cool at all. Totally fract up.

Thanks, Dave!

Everything That’s Cute Must Converge: Alexa Chung + Hansel from Basel [GIVEAWAY]

August 25th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen


Our favorite BrIt girl Alexa Chung is featured in the September issue of Nylon magazine wearing our favorite socks from our friend Hannah’s company, Hansel from Basel.

From the September 2009 issue of Nylon

Now, you may be asking yourself, how is it that we have a favorite sock company? But Hansel from Basel socks aren’t just, like, socks. To us, they’re more like lingerie (you’ll find they have that effect on your significant other, too). Some sport sweet details–pom-poms, ribbons, knee patches–while others, like their over-the-knee and thigh-high socks, are just sexy.

We want you to experience the magic of Hansel from Basel firsthand, so we’re doing a GIVEAWAY. Here’s the deal:

The first 5 people to bring us 10 new Twitter followers (no spambots, please) get a FREE pair of Hansel from Basel socks. DM us with the names of 10 legit Twitter accounts who have started following DISGRASIAN and once they check out, you’ll never go barefoot again!
