Rick Owens


 
This lovely silk scarf from designer Rick Owens is from his summer 2011 collection.

“The scarf represents Rick’s dark ideology and sense of imagination, using a mixture of fine silk and hard-hitting, emotive imagery.”

Interested? You can buy one now while they’re on sale for a couple hundred bucks at Oki-ni.

Frederick's Of Hollywood


 
In a few short minutes, the narrator slathers this documentary of Frederick’s Of Hollywood with a sticky patina of sleaze. Frederick Mellinger’s decadent department store may be to Victoria’s Secret what Depends are to crotchless panties, but it’s still a great place to visit and has been since 1947.

Actually, it’s much hipper than Victoria’s Secret. I just had to slip that Depends thing in.

Fashions for soccer referees


 
It’s 1970 and the TV moderator is railing against the boring look of uniforms worn by German soccer teams. Isn’t it about time these fashion-challenged jocks got hip?  Wouldn’t it make the games more exciting? We need color, we need sexier silhouettes, we need nylon and Spandex! And we need Brazilian music and dancing! Yes, yes, yes!

Trippy TV


 
Here are three TV commercials that jumped on the hippie bandwagon in the Sixties. While condemning the counter-culture, mainstream media sure loved to use the energy and colors of psychedelia to sell, as demonstrated in these go-go crazy ads, clothing, sparkplugs and cameras.
 

 
Here’s a trippy/weird commercial for IHOP. Thanks to DM reader Wandering Mort for turning us on to this.

Flickr user Poletti pays homage to some of the most beautiful women from Star Trek. The Galactically Hot Women of Star Trek photostream features the female beauties with the name of the characters, what episodes they appeared in and their real-life names. Besides all the gorgeous faces, the intergalactic 60s fashion and make-up are added bonuses.

Beautiful and haunting photographs of Shanxi, China’s Lunar New Year celebrations

Lunar New Year


 
From photographer Zhang Xiao:

These photographs were taken in Shanxi Province in the Northwest of China. They document the ancient customs, which originate from pagan religious beliefs. Today a number of these customs have survived as one of the most important cultural practices in the Lunar New Year. People dress in stunning costumes, paint their faces, and stage themselves as mythical creatures. I suppose, by contrast to their daily peasant lifestyle, on this special occasion everyone must have felt quite extraordinary, especially since they were representing powerful ancient deities. When I first saw them line up and walk around in the village, I kept on wondering: did I step into wonderland?

Zhang Xiao captures his images with a Holga camera, known for its “low-fi” aesthetic.

Hilarious Halloween costume of Al Pacino’s character from Cruising. I think this costume would get a lot of attention, don’t you?

Thank you, Gwendolyn Witherup!
