Gaga lands at the Brooklyn Navy Yard in Volantis, a flying dress at a press conference for her artRave party on Sunday 10 November 2013.
“Volantis is essentially a vehicle,” the 27-year-old entertainer told the crowd. “I wanted to make today about something even more important to me. And what that something is the youth of the world.”
Volantis was conceived by Studio XO in Gaga’s TechHaus. It has six booms in a hex formation and is powered by 50 volts of batteries. The dress also has a carbon fiber molded mimic of a fitted couture dress. It’s creative.

Danish trash can design company Vipp is giving new meaning to the word bombastic.
The company best known for the 1939 design of the Vipp Pedal Bin, unveiled a series of eight “couture” designs for their iconic trash cans. The designs, by Berlin designer Lessja Verlingieri of Lever Couture, took around 400 hours to complete and utilized 1400 (!) meters of fabric. The company’s word for their creation? “Trashion.”
Each of the designs is based on an outfit that Lever Couture had previously created for one of her clients, which include Lady Gaga and Gwyneth Paltrow. Verlingieri said it was a creative challenge to alter her designs for trash bins.
“But,” she points out, “the Vipp pedal bins have a great shape and they are the stars among pedal bins.”
The Trashion Bins are available at the Vipp Flagship Store in Copenhagen and will retail for 3500-5000 euros. If you’re considering purchasing one, we’d recommend buying a second regular Pedal Bin for actual, you know, trash.
