Deadly Victorian fashions
"Until electricity, ballerinas also routinely perished when the muslin of their tutus met gas lamps; the deaths were referred to at the time as the “holocaust of ballet girls.”"

Experiments in the future of clothing via Fastco design
"*Those fashion-tech atelier people have such an interesting look. They’re really living that life: “here I am in my London atelier, I happen to have green hair; the first thing we do is tell ourselves a science fiction world and then build some clothes for it,” and so on."

"These couture adornments carry alert wearers to Neuro-Imaging Surveillance (NIS) scans. This technology, currently used for medical purposes, can scan the brain to see which portions are active, which may betray what a person is thinking or feeling."

Is Fashion Ready for a New Aesthetic? | BoF – The Business of Fashion
"As a term, “The New Aesthetic” may be short-lived. Surprising many, James Bridle shut down the New Aesthetic Tumblr ten days ago, exactly one year after it was launched. But if the “New Aesthetic” movement is already dead, this is surely only the beginning of digital technologies impacting the way fashion creatives think, see and design. Indeed, the generation of students just starting to arrive in fashion schools have only ever known a world that’s mediated by digital technology and learnt to process visual culture through a ceaseless digital stream of appropriated and juxtaposed images."

BLDGBLOG: Spacesuit: An Interview with Nicholas de Monchaux
"From the fashionable worlds of Christian Dior and Playtex to the military-industrial complex working overtime on efforts to create a protective suit for U.S. exploration of the moon, and from early computerized analyses of urban management to an "android" history of the French court, all by way of long chapters on the experimental high-flyers and military theorists who collaborated to push human beings further and further above the weather—and eventually off the planet itself—de Monchaux's book shows the often shocking juxtapositions that give such rich texture and detail to the invention of the spacesuit: pressurized clothing for human survival in space."

2010: A Space Odyssey - NOWNESS
"Set in the deserted grounds of Paypal founder Elon Musk’s Space X jet lab in Hawthorne, California, the film was inspired by the pioneering spirit of the space race, which, according to Rodarte’s Kate and Laura Mulleavy, “has defined generations of artists in their desire to use new mediums and question the established rules they were taught to follow.” This cinematic collision between rocket science and visual daring is an apt match for Rodarte’s spring 2010 collection—a symphony of flesh-colored crochet knits, fluorescent fibres, leather bandages and distressed plaid. Costumed in a series of these exquisite creations, Van Seenus blurrily emerges from a shimmering seascape before running through the starkly alluring spaces of the Space X facility... Van Seenus’ hallucinatory journey, punctuated by glimpses of mysterious experiments and sudden rocket blasts, is chillingly soundtracked by LA noise-merchants No Age."

"When we are wandering the deserted wastelands, on occasion upon the back of a pterosaur, I imagine these will be the bags of choice."
