Solipsum


Solipsum



Synopsis:
Fashion, photography, futurism, models and martial arts. All this and a demon from hell—lock your doors and snle in for the night. Daniel Couto’s novel, Solipsum will have you up reading until morning.

It’s ten years just past now and Charlie, a beautiful young woman in New York City lands the job of a lifetime—working as a photo assistant on a highly experimental advertising campaign that features the world’s hottest models. But one of these models is not what he seems—he takes frequent trips to Hell and he’s got one hell of an agenda.

Couto’s imagination is a wild ride filled with characters that jump off the pages to visit your dreams (and nightmares)—stunning models, shark-like superagents, ninja assassins and demons dressed to the nines. Dry black humor, a deeply erotic undercurrent and a razzle-dazzle plotline all lead to a fantastic conclusion.

About the Author:
Daniel Couto is a photographer, director and producer. His latest projects include a reality-based television program called Catfight and a photography-based art show, Naked in the House, that airs on Canadian networks.

I was on the prowl for what I thought was a magazine titled, "Hijab Fashion," which I thought would make a neat teaching tool about stereotypes of the veil.

I was too embarrassed to ask if they had it so ... it was apparently less embarrassing for me to peruse the fashion magazine section at every news stand in Zamalek (this made total sense at the time, OK??).

Turns out it was a fashion catalog, and it was both heavy and expensive. Next time.

Balenciaga Paris


Balenciaga Paris



A sumptuous retrospective of one of the greatest houses in international fashion

Balenciaga Paris traces the designer's collections year by year, from 1937 to 2006, using photos, press cuttings, sketches, and other archival material. The book explores two main periods in depth: 1937-1968, when Cristobal Balenciaga made his name during Paris's golden age of fashion; and 1996-2006, charting the dramatic revival of the House of Balenciaga under Nicolas Ghesquiere, one of the most widely admired and celebrated new designers in contemporary fashion. He has co-directed the book's production with Pamela Golbin, curator at the Musee de la Mode et du Textile, Paris, who has compiled the text.

Described by Christian Dior as "the master of us all," Balenciaga's bold genius with cut, line, and fabric mark him out as one of the most daring and original designers in the world of haute couture. His virtuoso command of technique and imaginative exuberance recall his Spanish roots as well as assuring his place in the pantheon of twentieth-century style and elegance. 280 illustrations, 200 in color.

The Invention of Chic: Therese Bonney and Paris Moderne /






This volume is based on Therese Bonney's little-known archive, much of it unpublished since the 1930s, which comprehensively documents the modern movement in Paris between the wars. American photojournalist Bonney was one of many bright young foreigners drawn to Paris in the 1920s. After completing her PhD at the Sorbonne (the youngest person ever to do so), she turned her huge energies and acute eye to the world of modern design. This was an exciting moment: Art Deco, still at its height, was increasingly being challenged by the more austere aesthetics of Modernism. Bonney photographed architecture, interiors, salon installations and international expositions. She was dazzlingly well-connected and her captions read like a roll-call of Deco and Moderne: Jacques-Emile Ruhlmann, Jean Dunand, Le Corbusier and others. She was enthralled not only by commercial and decorative arts but also by fashion and beauty. She shot department stores and beauty salons, posters and packaging, restaurants and nightclubs. Her photographs exemplify the period's emphasis on line, texture and sparing but highly graphic decoration.

Women in Weimar Fashion: Discourses & Displays in German Culture, 1918-1933 (Screen Cultures: German Film and the Visual)


Women in Weimar Fashion: Discourses & Displays in German Culture, 1918-1933 (Screen Cultures: German Film and the Visual)



In the Weimar Republic, fashion was not only manipulated by the various mass media -- film, magazines, advertising, photography, and popular literature -- but also emerged as a powerful medium for women's self-expression. Female writers and journalists, including Helen Grund, Irmgard Keun, Vicki Baum, Elsa Maria Bug, and numerous others engaged in a challenging, self-reflective commentary on current styles. By regularly publishing on these topics in the illustrated press and popular literature, they transformed traditional genres and carved out significant public space for themselves. This book re-evaluates paradigmatic concepts of German modernism such as the flA?neur, the Feuilleton, and Neue Sachlichkeit in the light of primary material unearthed in archival research: fashion vignettes, essays, short stories, travelogues, novels, films, documentaries, newsreels, and photographs. Unlike other studies of Weimar culture that have ignored the crucial role of fashion, the book proposes a new genealogy of women's modernity by focusing on the discourse and practice of Weimar fashion, in which the women were transformed from objects of male voyeurism into subjects with complex, ambivalent, and constantly shifting experiences of metropolitan modernity. Mila Ganeva is Associate Professor of German at Miami University, Oxford, Ohio.

Run to the Sun is an Anchorage business for woman's clothing and also tanning. They had a fashion show at the Woman's Show in Anchorage, Alaska in April 2010. The show is pretty good but the lighting at the Sullivan Arena is absolutely horrible - like something out of a bomb shelter. Hopefully these photos aren't too bad. I met several of the models and shot with them at separate photo shoots - but it will take some time to post those photos.

Tropicana Nights: The Life and Times of the Legendary Cuban Nightclub


Tropicana Nights: The Life and Times of the Legendary Cuban Nightclub



It was to Havana what the Moulin Rouge was to Paris or the Blue Note to New York. The brightest jewel in 1950s Cuban nightlife, Tropicana was a "paradise under the stars" where you could gamble, hear the finest mambo and jazz musicians, and ogle the extravagantly risque floorshows. Nat "King" Cole played Tropicana; so did Josephine Baker. Americans-celebrities and suburbanites both-were drawn to its kinetic sensuality and tropical setting. And Tropicana remained a uniquely Cuban institution; unlike most Havana nightclubs, it operated free from the American mob's control.

Journalist Rosa Lowinger and Ofelia Fox, widow of Tropicana's last owner, vividly portray the cultural richness and roiling social problems of pre-Revolutionary Cuba and take the reader on an intimate insider's tour of one of the world's most glamorous venues at its most brilliant moment.

Today i was noticing how big Oliver is getting. He is so adorable...my love. So todays 365 was with him. He was purring the entire time we took pictures together. It was lovely:]

Well, again..i'm sorry for not posting for a couple days. Things have just been a little hectic for me. I got the job at Delia's...but its not what i expected. So i'm going to continue looking for a better job. The past week though i have been helping my mum out at work. So thats nice...except when the children i watched would scream or cry...or throw shit around. Ugh.

The move will be soon...about a month i guess. With the lovely Audrey Scott. Roomiesss. HA. I'm glad i found someone i love and trust and know to move in with. So yay. Bonus points for a crappy week.

I'm Mentally, physically and emotionally drained. If i didnt have Tristan...i'd be in a deep dark hole again. A place where i dont want to visit again. A place where once i was there for a while...i got comfortable in it...it became normal. I dont want that again.

Ripley's Game


Ripley's Game



Mr. Ripley emerges from retirement to preside over one last deadly game, but can he persuade an innocent man to commit murder?

The slippery protagonist of The Talented Mr. Ripley returns in another deadly guise in Ripley's Game, a well-appointed star vehicle. The star this time is John Malkovich, whose older Tom Ripley has settled into an Italian villa and a life of aesthetic contemplation (a little like Hannibal Lecter in Hannibal). A former partner (Ray Winstone) drags an innocent frame-maker (Dougray Scott), dying of leukemia, into the role of unexpected hit man. Ripley, for his own enigmatic reasons, helps. Liliana Cavani, of The Night Porter notoriety, directed this handsome if nebulous film (which has no connection to the Matt Damon picture, other than a Patricia Highsmith source novel). Malkovich exudes his usual oily disenchantment with the world; Lena Headey, like the location footage, is gorgeous. The same novel was adapted in very different style by Wim Wenders for his brilliant 1977 film, The American Friend, with Dennis Hopper and Bruno Ganz. --Robert Horton

The Peninsula Hotel




The Peninsula Hotel





696-700 Fifth Avenue, Midtown Manhattan, New York City

The imposing neo-Italian Renaissance Gotham Hotel (now the Peninsula Hotel) is one of the few structures on Fifth Avenue which recalls the golden age of luxury hotels and the prominent place they occupied in the formation of the city. Erected between 1902 and 1905 by the Fifty-Fifth Street Company, a real estate development firm, it was designed by the architectural firm of Hiss & Weekes and is among the oldest of the early "skyscraper" hotels.

These hotels heralded the transformation of Fifth Avenue from an exclusive residential street — Millionaires' Row — to a fashionable commercial thoroughfare. Rising twenty stories, including a multi-storied rooftop addition, at the southwest comer of West 55th Street and Fifth Avenue, the boldly rendered Gotham is a stylistic counterpoint to its contemporary, the flamboyant Beaux-Arts St. Regis Hotel directly across Fifth Avenue and also skillfully complements McKim, Mead & White's University Club which adjoins the Gotham to the south.

The development of the luxury hotel in New York began when John Jacob Astor (1763-1848) commissioned Isaiah Rogers in 1836 to design an hotel to be erected on the site of his former house on fashionable lower Broadway opposite City Hall. The Astor House was an immediate success and maintained its position as New York's finest hotel for over fifteen years until the city began its relentless northward growth. The fashionable center of the city moved "uptown" to Broadway between Canal and Houston Streets.

Prompted in part by the Crystal Palace exhibition of 1853, a host of hotels were erected with the finest and most lavish rising along this section of Broadway. These hotels not only lived up to the standards set by the Astor House, but even exceeded them, vying to outdo each other in opulence. After the Civil War and the recovery of the economy from the general depression that followed, the city again moved north and a number of grand hotels opened near Madison Square along Fifth Avenue and Broadway.

John Jacob Astor (1864-1912) and his cousin William Waldorf Astor again exerted their family's influence as arbiters of taste and fashion in both the worlds of high society and real estate by constructing the hotel Waldorf Astoria in 1892 and 1897 on the site of two neighboring family mansions on Fifth Avenge between 33rd and 34th Streets (now the site of the Empire State Building).
In 1892, William Waldorf Astor also commissioned the New Nether land Hotel at Fifth Avenue and 59th Street. Fifth Avenue at that time was lined with this country's finest mansions designed by its most prominent architects to house its wealthiest families. The spires of churches which had been the tallest objects along the avenue were now eclipsed by these new "skyscraper" hotels.

These hotels were the first to combine two separate building types: the skyscraper, previously restricted to the downtown area and to office use; and the hotel which had generally been low-scaled and essentially domestic in character. These hotels heralded the transformation of Fifth Avenue from an exclusive residential street—Millionaires' Row—to a fashionable commercial thoroughfare.

A decade after these hotels opened, the city once again underwent a substantial change. Major civic improvements, particularly in rapid transit, changed the character and pattern of movement of the city's residents. The first subways were being built, three East River bridges were either in the planning stages or under construction, as were the two great railroad stations, Pennsylvania Station and Grand Central Terminal.

By the beginning of the 20th century, distinct hotel districts developed. The areas immediately around the railway stations attracted hotels catering to transient businessmen. The theater district, which had moved to Times Square, encouraged the construction of hotels for tourists. Fifth Avenue, with its cachet of wealth and elegance, inspired the building of hotels for the well-to-do in New York — who desired accommodation for the winter social season or for extended stays.

A new kind of luxury hotel, providing a more exclusive and refined environment, was in demand and the Gotham, erected between 1902 and 1905, was one of the new hotels built to meet this demand.

Design of the Gotham

When the architects of the Gotham, Hiss & Weekes, chose the neo-Italian Renaissance as the style for the new hotel, they were not only aware of prototypes in Italy but were keenly aware of contemporary buildings in New York by McKim, Mead & White, which were altering the appearance of the city. McKim, Mead & White's lasting fame and influence is associated with the revival of Renaissance forms.

Madison Square Garden (1887-91) and the Boston Public Library (1887-95) are among two of the most important monuments which reintroduced the Renaissance style to America and both were undertaken w











Italian chapel external at the churchill barrier




Italian chapel external at the churchill barrier





Front View of the Chapel.
In early 1942 some 550 Italian prisoners of war, captured in North Africa, were brought to Orkney. They were needed to overcome the shortage of labour working on the continuing construction of the Churchill Barriers. These were the four causeways designed to block eastern access to Scapa Flow following the sinking of HMS Royal Oak by a German U-Boat in 1939.
Prisoners of war were prevented by treaty from working on military projects, so the barriers became causeways linking the southern islands of Orkney together, which is what they remain today.
The causeways are not all that remains to remind us of this period. On a bare hillside on the north side of the little island of Lamb Holm, overlooking the most northerly of the Churchill Barriers, is what has become known as the Italian Chapel. The Chapel, together with a nearby concrete statue of St George killing the dragon and an Italian flag fluttering atop a pole are all that remain of Camp 60.

Camp 60 was home to the Italian prisoners from 1942 until early 1945. The camp comprised 13 huts, which the Italians improved with concrete paths (concrete was never in short supply during the construction of the Churchill Barriers) and gardens, complete with flower beds and vegetable plots.
In the centre of the camp, one of the prisoners, Domenico Chiocchetti, produced the statue of St George you can still see today, fashioned from barbed wire covered with concrete. The prisoners also worked to produce a theatre and a recreation hut, complete with a billiard table made, perhaps inevitably, from concrete.
One thing Camp 60 did lack was a chapel. In 1943 the camp acquired a new commandant, Major T.P. Buckland. He favoured the idea, as did Father Giacombazzi the Camp Padre. Late in 1943 two Nissen huts were provided. They were joined together end to end, with the intention of providing a chapel in one end and a school in the other.
The work of turning the Nissen huts into a chapel fell to the prisoners themselves, led once more by Domenico Chiocchetti. The interior of the east end was lined with plasterboard and Chiocchetti started work on what is now the sanctuary. The altar and its fittings were made from concrete and were flanked by two windows made from painted glass. The gold curtains either side of the altar were purchased from a company in Exeter using the prisoners' own funds.
Chioccetti then set to work on the painting of the interior of the sanctuary. The end result is a work of art that is magnificent even to jaded 21st Century eyes, and must have been utterly stunning to those imprisoned here in 1943. Another prisoner, Palumbo, who had been an iron worker in the USA before the war, spent four months constructing the wrought iron rood screen, which still complements the rest of the interior today.
The contrast between the east end of the double hut and the remainder was by now so stark that the decision was taken to improve whole interior of the structure. This in turn was lined with plasterboard, before being painted by Chiocchetti and others to resemble brickwork.
This showed up the plainness of the exterior of the chapel, so a number of the prisoners built the facade you can see today, again largely from concrete. The new facade had the effect of concealing the shape of the Nissen huts behind it, and came complete with a belfry, decorated windows, and a moulded head of Christ above the door. At the same time the metal exterior of the huts was thickly coated in concrete.
The end of the war meant that the chapel was only in use by the prisoners for a short period of time. It was still not fully finished when most of the Italians left the island early in 1945, and Chiocchetti stayed behind to complete the font. Before the Italians departed the Lord Lieutenant of Orkney, who also owned Lamb Holm, promised that the Orcadians would look after the chapel they had created.
During the years after the war the chapel increasingly became a visitor attraction, and in 1958 a preservation committee was set up. In 1960, the BBC funded a return visit to Orkney by Domenico Chiocchetti. His restoration of the paintwork was followed by a service of rededication attended by 200 Orcadians, and broadcast on Italian radio.
Domenico Chiocchetti returned to Orkney again in 1964 with his wife, and gifted to the chapel the 14 wooden stations of the cross on view today. In 1992, 50 years after the Italians were originally brought to Orkney, 8 of the former prisoners returned, though Chiocchetti was too ill to be with them. Domenico Chiocchetti died on 7 May 1999 in his home village of Moena, aged 89. He did so in the knowledge that his masterpiece will live on as a tribute to his artistry and to the spirit of all those involved in its construction and preservation.

The Women (Keepcase)






Be careful what you say in private. It could become a movie. Some gossip overheard by Clare Boothe Luce in a nightclub powder room inspired her Broadway hit that's wittily adapted for the screen in The Women. George Cukor directs an all-female cast in this catty tale of battling and bonding that paints its claws Jungle Red and shreds the excesses of pampered Park Avenue princesses. Joan Crawford, Rosalind Russell, Joan Fontaine, Mary Boland and Paulette Goddard are among the array of husband snatchers, snitches and lovelorn ladies.

George Cukor, Hollywood's legendary "woman's director," had his hands full with the all-female cast of this 1939 film adaptation of the Clare Boothe play. The story finds a group of catty, competitive friends destroying reputations at social gatherings. The dialogue sparkles, Joan Crawford's performance as a husband stealer is still a classic, the film looks wonderful in Cukor's hands, and the Technicolor fashion-show scene is a one-of-a-kind Hollywood experience. --Tom Keogh

Running from the 15th until the 20th of September, this year's event has made the news due to concern over using models under the age of sixteen as well as the ongoing health issues surrounding "Size Zero" models.











"George at Asda" really pushed the boat out this season..

japan fashion history - Taisho Kimono:




Taisho Kimono: Speaking of Past and Present


Taisho Kimono: Speaking of Past and Present



This remarkable volume features and analyzes a private collection of some 130 textiles, mainly from the period between 1900 and 1940. An introduction explains the place of the kimono in Japanese society, including the essential cultural and historical background, but the heart of the book is formed by the photographs of the individual textiles, focusing on the decoration techniques and other main characteristics. No doubt women’s kimono are the most artistic ones as a result of their bold and colorful designs. But probably the most surprising garments are the men’s under kimono’s, since little has been published about them. Some designs show a longing for the past, but others are decorated with contemporary motifs, such as the popular baseball game and the beginning of the Second World War. The children’s section features the contrasting expectations for girls and boys in Japanese society: "sweet" decorations on girls’ kimono’s, strong animals or samurai on boys’ textiles. The book is generously illustrated with three hundred full-color photographs taken especially for this book and all never before published.

Wearing Propaganda: Textiles on the Home Front in Japan, Britain, and the United States (Published in Association with the Bard Graduate Centre for Studies in the Decorative Arts, Design and Culture)






Protest fashion from the Vietnam War years is widely familiar, but today few are aware that dramatic fashion and textile designs served as patriotic propaganda for the Japanese, British, and Americans during the Asia-Pacific War (1931–1945). This fabulously illustrated book presents hundreds of examples of how fashion was employed by those on all sides of the conflict to boost morale and fan patriotism.
From a kimono lined with images of U.S. planes blowing up to a British scarf emblazoned with hopeful anti-rationing slogans, Wearing Propaganda documents the development of the role of fashion as propaganda first in Japan and soon thereafter in Britain and the United States. The book discusses traditional and contemporary Japanese styles and what they revealed about Japanese domestic attitudes to war, and it shows how these attitudes echoed or contrasted with British and American fashions that were virulently anti-Japanese in some instances, humorously upbeat about wartime deprivations in others. With insights into style and design, fashion history, material culture, and the social history of Japan, the United States, and Britain, this book offers unexpected riches for every reader.

Tagged 25

Rules: Once you've been tagged, you're supposed to write 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals that you have. At the end, choose some people to be tagged as well

1. I love my cat as though he were my own child.
2. I am a shopaholic, and an avid deal hunter. I will spend at least 1-2 hours per day hunting them.
3. I love comic books and have an account at a local store. X-Men is my favourite.
4. I have an obsession with costumes and will go to great lenghts to have the costume I want each year.
5. I speak French and English, and a tiny bit of Spanish and German.
6. I need to sleep a lot in order to feel ok and not be too whiny.
7. I cry really easily anyway.
8. I can't work (unless it's fun) unless the deadline is really close.
9. I love airports and have sometimes been to airports just for the pleasure of being there.
10. I have an OCD over packing lists when traveling. (And lists in general)
11. I love pink and am sorry Marina will have to endure it at convention (LOL).
12. I adore Pride and Prejudice, have read it dozens of times, reading the annotated version right now, and wish all men were Mr Darcy (or Colin Firth, I wouldn't mind).
13. I have a geeky way of doing extensive research very quickly every single time I stumble upon a new obsession. I now have random knowledge on a lot of topics!
14. I buy great shoes, and then wish I had more occasions to wear them.
15. Japan and England are on my top travel list, with England being the next feasible destination. (Dolly travel doesn't count)
16. I am currently obsessing over sheepskin. Badly.
17. I like people to be tactful, but I tend to be blunt myself (oops!)
18. I love the game of Go, but have no one to play with, and I am too ashamed to play online. (so I am bad at it)
19. I have at least 30 cookbooks, and of course I rarely use them. (Yeah being obsessed with Beauty and the Beast's library has consequences in one's life)
20. I studied one year in a Fashion Design School (and dropped).
21. I'm a Mac (used to be PC, but Trojans made me switch)
22. I have quite a big bar for the sole pleasure of being able to make whichever cocktail/drink I want when I want it, even though I rarely invite people home.
23. I love the idea of the countryside, but very quickly find myself bored when I am there.
24. I have absolutely no will when it comes to "not eating something because it's not healty". When it sounds good, I just eat it.
25. I am dreaming of being at convention in Pitts since the last two weeks!
