I’m really entranced by these pictures from the show for Chanel’s resort fashions. I keep coming back to them! The hairstyles seem to call back to the early 20th century, or at least, they do to me! Every time I look at them I’m reminded of the flappers, or even faintly of the Gibson Girls.

The clothes seem kind of inspired by these eras as well – is this just me? Do you guys see it too? What do you think?
I saw this gorgeous set on The Moldy Doily. (She always posts awesome pictures!) Head over there to see many more shots from this show!

I love these pensive photos from Renate Aller‘s set Fixed Coordinates! They are so expansive and soothing! Each picture was taken at the same point on Westhampton Beach, hence the title of the set. It would be awesome to have a huge huge print of one of these – or even wall mural sized! See more of her work on Ruby Beets, or her site of course!

Watch Evelien turn her notebook into a computer! It’s so cute!

bernard pras

French artist Bernard Pras recreates pictures and portraits with found objects. His work is totally amazing.

Picture%203pras.png
Picture%204pras.png
Picture%205pras.png
An explanation from the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna: After an extensive and wide-ranging training, the artist Bernard Pras slowly began to focus on portraiture while experimenting with many different techniques. We were particularly interested in his photographed “composite portraits” of famous, frequently long-dead personalities… for which he selected composite elements that helped explain the sitter’s character or the reason for his or her fame. However, Pras adds an extra dimension of complexity: he distributes the individual elements that constitute his portraits in rooms – frequently locations chosen with great care – that participate in the creation of the composite artworks. …in the end it requires a camera lens to bring them together in a photograph, and to turn them into recognizable portraits.
Fantastic! Head on over to If It’s Hip, It’s Here for more (and bigger) pictures!

These are from a set by Brock Davis in which he explores how things that don’t shatter might look if they did shatter. A simple idea, but I like them – especially the coffee cup! It’s convincing.
See more on Brock’s site or Cyana Trend Land.

dream in paper

This video from Petra Storrs is really fantastic! It’s a little bit Alice in Wonderland, and much paper-craft! Check it out for yourself and see!

maps are beautiful

Black*Eiffel spotted these sweet old cartography maps, so carefully made by Harold Fisk in 1944! They portray the alluvial valley of the lower Mississippi River, and the ribbons of color are the banks of the river at various times in history. Very interesting, and very very pretty. See the whole set at Radical Cartography!

The latest issue of Dazed has a cool piece on some of the newest models who walked the London catwalks this year. The pictures remind me of the work by Daniel Newman that I posted here a while back.

underwater

thelightnessofbeing_9.jpg
These images by Alinka Echeverría are just amazing! They are from a series of photos and video that she has done called Lightness of Being, which features, as you can see, stunning shots of synchronized swimmers underwater. I really love that the waterline is at the bottom of the picture – it gives a whole different perspective than one usually sees in underwater photos. Awesome! If you have a moment you should totally go to her site and watch the video – it is like the pictures, only even better – just incredible!

I love this posting of the synch swimmers and reading on and on fell in love with the diversity of your posts and the cleverness of those who work at FP. My daughter who is 17 just bought a little bikini from you guys and after not giving up after it was too small, like the three bears story it came yesterday and fits "just right" so she is happy to both wear the clothing and now I will send her this link. She is a great etsy artist and I am including her url if you like. She designed the cover of the lit mag for her high school, see it on her store"the brain"! I am going to check back often for your posts as they are so cool, love the horses and cookies and wel.. my daughter loves your clothing and so do I. We moved to Sedona from APtos CA where the aptos shoe co first introduced your line to Rita, now she is a life long fan and always checks the site to see what is new. here is her unusual art store Animalgam http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5503205
