click click – 28-07-09
Welcome to Click Click, the regular roundup of what I find worth clicking on the internet.
- From LIFE Magazine, a series of photos of a fashion show in New York from the early 1960s.
- Just after re-reading the story of her sister Elinor Glyn, I was delighted to discover this post with some excerpts from the 1905 lookbook of Lucile Ltd.
- Fashion blog superstar Gala Darling kindly included my Dr. Martens design among her favourites in this post on Chinashop. P.S. you can buy them from NEON.
- The Style Coalition says… Don’t Shop. There’s a seed of a good idea there – but the confusing message and the lack of editing/audio quality makes it difficult to decipher. Does Chanel really need the boosterism? Is Macy’s about to deflate unless fashion bloggers rally to defend it? I doubt it.
- Still feeling all warm and glowy from the Sartorialist love-in last week? Amy Verner cornered him while drunk and the boastful interview, while entertaining, leaves me less than impressed. Really, Garance?
- Smells like… bankruptcy and bureaucracy? GM launches a new fragrance.
- Heads up: its time to register for access to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in NYC. The earlier the better (especially for bloggers) so you can be added to the official list which some designers use for invitations.
- M.A.C. is sponsoring a new unofficial venue during fashion week New York. Lined up to show in the free space are some exciting young designers. Something else to love about M.A.C., they often collaborate with artists to communicate their new collections. Style IT has the scoop.
- The Toronto Fashion Incubator has a new generation of residents moving in – check out their profiles here.
Fashion blog karma for incoming linkers and commenters…
