Welcome to click click, the sporadic review of what I find worth clicking on the internet.

Gorgeous photo by Richard Avedon of the model Dovima, wearing what is, according to Hamish Bowles, one of Yves Saint Laurent’s first autonomous designs for the house of Dior. Hear Bowles, Pierre Berge and others speak about the legacy of YSL here.

Thankful karma for all my internet sisters & brothers –

  1. The Lo Life link is really interesting — it shows the importance of brands as symbols that cultural narratives can be built around, often in unintended ways. The brand has a currency of its own, a life of its own and its meaning can be reworked for whoever wants it. Reminiscent of Chav culture.

  2. That was such an interesting post. I always knew of these photos but I never knew that it was one of YSL’s first designs for Dior (and i LOVE YSL. I read his biography and fell in love with a man i’ll never meet)

  3. Who has got such an excellent idea!What a perfection!Dancer and dancing elephents have such an incrediblly inside connection that they are moving at the same steps!
