Welcome to click click, the sporadic review of what I find worth clicking on the internet.
What is it about Dolce & Gabbana ads that is so prescient, topical, and dense with narrative potential? I’ve often wondered why there isn’t a blog dedicated to captioning fashion ads… so I finally started one. Feel free to add your own captions or submit your own captioned Dolce & Gabbana ads.
- Who invented clothes? A Paleolithic archaologist answers – this is how you talk to children, fashion: a scientist corrects a fashion writer. And guess what? Turns out fashion is far older than clothes.
- Hair and Cloth Simulation – insight into how engineering and artistry combine to design costumes and hair for computer-animated films via The Tree Topper’s great comment on the development of graphic tools.
- Why China’s luxury shoppers are spurning Louis Vuitton for Burberry – tastes are changing in China. With a glamourous new first lady in place to lead, the mainstream ideal is still very label-conscious, but more conservative and military-inspired. This is occidentalism with a posh British accent.
- The Secret World of Haute Couture – a unique Couture documentary that focuses on the incredibly wealthy women who actually buy the clothing. Via this wonderful resource of fashion documentaries from the epitome of quiet.
- Staying Up All Night With An Adderall’d Tao Lin – Rachel R. White gives us a look at a literary sub-Warhol in the dark hours, including the author chasing the last word in the comments. I became aware of Lin as the documenter and discarder of young Bebe Zeva, who now resembles a sort of style-blogger, corrupted-JPG version of post-Warhol Edie Sedgewick.
- False Arms – everyone likes organizing things by colour, right?
Karma to keep,
- A Creative Reality – “where you can find creativity, inspiration, and fashion”
- doodlin’ – “We’re Arna and John, a husband and wife team. Our animation company is called dancingmonkeys.”
- Paper Thin Personas – “My goals are to provide a diverse collection of paper dolls, keep myself amused and gain great fame and fortune.”
- The LUXE Life – “Life is short… we’re here to make it luxe.”
- Christopher Doeling – “I’ve literally been from one coast to the other in these United States in a long search for the perfect art related career.”
