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.
A sweet flapper woman. Via.
Another pretty flapper. Via.
Some Gibson Girls. Via.
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!

Using fiber-optic technology, French company LumiGram has created a cloth that glows! It’s not glow-in-the-dark, rather it actually casts a soft light – each clothing item comes with a battery pack that will keep your clothes glowing for around 12 hours after each charge. Interesting, no? Check out all their styles here.
French artist Bernard Pras recreates pictures and portraits with found objects. His work is totally amazing.
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!
Many of us who work at URBN Inc. have little brothers or sisters through the local Big Brothers Big Sisters organization. They have a wonderful program where they even bus the children to our office from their school, twice a month to eat lunch with us! After lunch, Bigs and Littles just hang out together and do their own thing, or they can do whatever the fun scheduled activity is for that day.
At the end of last week, our Littles came, and the activity was so fun! It was a newspaper fashion show! Bigs and Littles made outfits out of newspaper and then walked the runway! There are so many adorable and funny pictures from it, I couldn’t resist sharing them with you! I’m sure you’ll get a kick out of them too!
Such a blast!
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!
