Gibson on retro revivals, reproducing vintage gear, and Japanese fashion brands. Lots on technical clothing overlapping with the street. Lots of interesting detail, too.

BLDGBLOG: Spacesuit: An Interview with Nicholas de Monchaux
Gosh, what a lot of topics: fashion, fabrics, architecture, space, cybernetics, cities, all spinning out of the development of the spacesuit. Cracking interview, impossible to pick a quotation from.

atticus_flinch: в ролях
Photoshoot for Empire; actors pose in pastiches of scenes for which they are famous. But with the emphasis on looking hot. Some are weak, but Christian Bale and his fireaxe, and Jodie Foster/Anthony Hopkins, are great.

Wait, This Is a Shoe? - Mojito Shoe - Gizmodo
"Designed by London architect Julian Hakes, the Mojito shoe is made of carbon fiber—to give it strength and spring—and laminated with rubber on the bottom and leather—from furniture manufacturers in High Wycombe, England—on top." Gorgeous.

Ridiculous Life Lessons From New Girl Games | GameLife |
"The weird thing is that you can view these “wholesome” games as being just as bad for girls as Grand Theft Auto’s random bloodshed and rampant criminality is for young, impressionable boys. And while GTA’s influence on boys has been dissected to death, what about the Nintendo DS’ upcoming avalanche of games for tween girls? What kinds of values do preteens learn from these titles? Valuable life lessons, or bad habits?" As bad as GTA? Many, many times worse, if this sample is anything to go on.

the impossible cool.
Mainly for the photography, I think; iconic images of icons, by and large, and some nice curveballs from time to time.

foto_decadent: John Rawlings
A whole bunch of vintage Rawlings fashion photography from 30s and 40s Vogue. Something about many of these that's just magic; great direction, great pictures.

costume detail: Stripes
"The Medieval eye found any surface in which a background could not be distinguished from the foreground disturbing. Thus striped clothing was relegated to those on the margins or outside the social order - jugglers and prostitutes for example - and in medieval paintings the devil himself is often seen wearing stripes." Wow. I did not know that.

Photo Essay: The Denim Factory - David Friedman Photography: Blog
"I used to scoff at paying a premium for jeans that come with holes in them already. Then I saw just how much work goes into distressing jeans, and I realized that these people are artists."

The World of Fashion: Pixel Perfect: Reporting & Essays: The New Yorker
"[Dangin] is, more than anything, the consigliere for a generation of photographers uncomfortable with, or uninterested in, the details of digital technology." Great article on the king of retouchers; whatever you think of his art, he's clearly sharp.
