Google: We Wear Culture

Leave it to Google to make the most comprehensive and searchable database on anything your little heart desires. They've been quietly working to build the "We Wear Culture" site which focuses specifically on fashion. This is not a shopping site. This is about connecting the dots through history, art, pop culture, and craft. The site highlights the evolution of trends and deep dives into the meaning of fashion in our lives. While still in Beta testing, there is a ton of stuff to surf already. I could get lost in here for hours! Enjoy!

Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons Art of the In-Between

I intend to go see this exhibit at The Met as soon as I can guarantee I won't stand in line for 2 hours but I'm not sure I will be able to write a review with as much humor and realism as Jackie Mallon.

To note: the review is more a commentary on the attendees rather than Rei Kawakubo's body of work but any fashion insider reading this will nod in agreement that Mallon hits the nail on the head.
