Welcome to click click, the sporadic review of what I find worth clicking on the internet.
These installations by artist Derick Melander appeal to the finicky folder in me, as well as being an interesting survey of the range of colours that clothing is available in.
- The Contemporary Wardrobe – a lovely photo memoir by vintage clothing archivist Roger Burton charting his unique professional life in fashion, including some spectacular casual footage of Westwood and McLaren chatting about their work.
- Hitler Has a Following in India – further to the topic Viv & Malcom were nattering on about, the peculiar fashion afterlife of Western history’s most reviled villain continues in new contexts.
- How eBay Became a Fast-Fashion Graveyard – when a high-street collaboration hits the free market, it reveals just how much intangible value there really is in a designer’s name.
- Brianne Garcia – via It’s OK, this intrepid young woman was brave enough to reveal her fashion entrepreneurial failure in real time, and then transform the experience into a new career. Inspiring.
- Why The Art World is So Loathsome – the ever-erudite Simon Doonan posits eight theories on why this generation is getting the art it deserves. In case you require further disillusionment: Exit Through The Gift Shop.
