Dazed Digital has a really good collection of videos from Fashion Week in Paris which is worth checking out! Above is a short video of Dior’s Spring 2009 show, filmed by Pierre Debusschere. The clothes are awesome, and the song is great too! Head on over to Dazed Digital to see video of other Fashion Week shows.
I couldn’t resist posting this video of the Thames River in London in 1935! The film is an early color video; it used Gasparcolor, which is a very rare and old way of adding color to film. You can read a very detailed and admiring article about Gasparcolor here.
I find old color pictures and videos like this very intriguing, because one seldom gets a glimpse of the reality of life back then… it’s like a visual history lesson. If you are into stuff like this too, be sure to check out this old post about autochrome pictures.
For whatever reason, I was kind of surprised to see that Louis Vuitton has come out with this skateboard, which comes in its own little LV case. It’s cute though, right? I do like it, but at a price of $8,250, I don’t think I’ll be seeing one in person any time soon!
The new BLDG15 Threads is out today, and this month it’s all about Home Office Style! We asked six different Home Office employees to go the racks and pick out a Free People outfit for spring, and to tell us a little bit about their own personal style! We made a really sweet little video of our endeavors, and got really inspired to keep making up fun outfits! To watch the video and get inspired yourself, head over to BLDG 15 Threads!
These delicious-looking candy plants are really pleasing to the eye, don’t you think? I can’t tell if they’re photoshopped or not, what do you think? I know they’re by Joachim LaPotre, but I can’t find too much on his site of how he makes his photos. Either way, they sure are appealing and inspiring!

I really like this silverware by Habitat. It’s so pretty! What do you think?
Inspired by Marcel Duchamp’s Eau de Voilette and starring Michelle Williams and Natalie Portman, this short art film is an advertisement for a ficitional perfume and sure to be beautiful and interesting. If that doesn’t already get you thinking, the film is directed by Roman Polanski and was conceived by Francesco Vezzoli. I can’t wait for the online screening on February 6th on Dazed Digital.
Head over to Dazed now for the trailer, and then mark your calendar for the 6th!
