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

- American Mozart – a brilliant, considered profile of fashion’s favourite rapper, and his redemptive role in Hova’s hip hop hegemony. Kanye West’s story exists on the axis of almost everything that fascinates me about our culture.
- Everybody Street – great interviews with some of New York City’s best street photographers, where style is incidental to the documentation. A dying art as omnipresent observation has irreversibly changed the way people self-present. Related: surreptitious Edwardian street style.
- What It Costs Eight Women Writers To Make It In New York – tangential to recent thoughts about whether big cities still offer opportunities worth the significant overhead – and how in cities like London and NYC now, the ranks of those who “make it” are necessarily nepotistic.
- Kim Hastreiter’s CFDA Award Acceptance Speech – is a shoutout to all of fashion’s most interesting niche players – the ones who do great work but rarely get the accolades. Via Jill Danyelle.
- The New Aesthetic – a proposal for establishing the parameters of a new cultural genre. Via Nextness.
- It’s OK for intellectual feminists to like fashion – Lucie asks me some searching questions about the blogging process – and I gladly spill my guts.
- Style Bubble – being listed as a “fave” by the sharpest eye in fashion blogging is truly an honour. Thanks Susie!
- Mamma’s Chest – “Vintage Goods”
- VVires.com – “Good art is a prism that draws a specific mood, world view, etc. out of you and refracts them into a million colors, your interpretation is the message”
