Trash cans have gone couture. Vipp, the Danish design company whose classic pedal-operated catchall sits in New York's Museum of Modern Art, has just unveiled a new line called Trashion Bins. Fashion designer Lessja Verlingieri, who has created clothes for Lady Gaga and Britney Spears, produced eight looks for the stainless-steel cans, using 1,500 yards of fabric to dress each in "made-to-measure couture." They're "perfect for fashionistas" who can't see what MoMA saw in the original Vipp. From $4,634, vipp.com
