In a vaguely Ed Hardian attempt to stamp its anti-branding on every aspect of our lives, James Perse has launched a limited-edition line of summer recreation gear. The collection, which is available by "invitation only", includes a ping pong table, surfboards, dog accessories, and a children's tricycle that's "custom-made with an extra low center of gravity design so it won't tip over." But wait, isn't that the point of a regular tricycle? Anyway. [Racked Inbox]
