Take a trip through Greenwich Village in 1969.

This promotional video was created by the Cotton Producers Institute, which explains the fabric fetish, beautiful models and ultra-groovy threads. Note that there are no hungry artists or bearded beatniks mucking up the mod world of “countrified cosmopolitans.” Kind of prophetic..

Hand-painted sneakers featuring Nick Cave and Bowie as Aladdin Sane by Finland-based artist, Erika Works.

It looks like she does custom orders, too. Someone in the comments inquired about a pair of Leonard Cohen shoes, and Erika Works said it would cost them around 40€ for the art (that does not include the price of the shoes, tho).

This week, I’ve been wandering around DM Towers dressed like this. While it’s been fun to whack about with a 9-iron, I doubt I looked as cool (or as cheesy) as these two guys: Donald Sutherland and Elliott Gould in Robert Altman’s M*A*S*H.

M*A*S*H was the first ‘X’ certificate film I sneaked into, when I was about 14. It was on a re-release with the pornographically titled The Last Hard Men, which was (disappointingly) a western starring Charlton Heston, James Coburn and Barbara Hershey. An interesting double bill that nearly explains what was good and bad about the seventies

Apparently the “game” was:

“Ring Around Rosie. Or Carol. Or Eleanor, etc. Fun. But you can only play if you wear Broomsticks slacks.”

Broomsticks, huh? Okay, sure, but what about what she’s wearing? I’ve seen my fair share of sexist ads, but just… wow.

What the hell was this advertising agency thinking? Who approved this shit?

What you’re looking at is a vintage photo of one man’s quest to become a literal “Peter Pan.”

I think he nailed it, don’t you?

Linda Brusasco’s 2010 documentary, Duffy: The Man Who Shot Sixties, is an engaging film that shares with the viewer some of the life story of brilliant, elusive and street-wise photographer Brian Duffy. Along with David Bailey and Terence Donovan, Duffy pioneered a fresh approach to fashion photography that echoed the pop culture of Britain’s Swingin’ Sixties. His iconic shots of Jean Shrimpton, John Lennon, Michael Caine, David Bowie, Twiggy and many more, are familiar to anyone who has paid attention to rock ‘n’ roll and fashion.

The doc features David Bowie, Angela Bowie, Mick Ronson, David Bailey, among others. Mandatory viewing for anyone interested in photography as art and cultural touchstone.

I adore this hand-painted Jabba the Hutt clutch purse with an accompanied attached-by-a-chain Princess Leia coin purse by Cat Penfold. Hilariously brilliant!
