Pulp Book: 70s Style Photography by Neil Krug

I like this this! Pulp Book is collaboration between supermodel Joni Harbeck and photographer Neil Krug. The book will feature 200 pulp inspired images. Neil Krug explains his book:

Pulp is an upcoming photo book of psychedelic images made to look like old school paperback covers. The book features supermodel Joni Harbeck exclusively as the heroine in a world of fabricated dramas. Everything in the book has been photographed with expired polaroid film to put across the mood of looking at a beautifully beat to hell dusty LP cover.

Putting this book together has been my favorite project to date. The book reflects our love for artists such as Robert McGinnis, Tanino Liberatore, Alejandro Jodorowsky, and a slew of others. Their work is a major influence for this project.

Highsnobiety wrote a fascinating article on Viktor and Rolf’s enormous dollhouse exhibit dedicated to the spectacular designs of Paris catwalk shows. Highsnobiety says:

To write about this has been on my agenda too long. Just saw the images on my machine again and had to post this now. Beginning of this year we went to the Centraal Museum in Utrecht to visit the biggest overview exhibition of Viktor and Rolf ever shown in Holland. In retrospective the highlights of 15 years of their work was presented. The influence of this duo has been huge and we?

Meet Marit Fujiwara, a textile design graduate of the Chelsea College of Art and Design. Marit’s work is simply stunning. In the past few years - especially with the economy tanking - I haven’t given fashion much thought (I’m a former Los Angeles based stylist).  But her work is so inspired and creative that I really wanted to share it with you.  Marit says:

To create a sculptural fabric, I am experimenting with the printing technique of marbling,in combination with embroidery,bonding and pleating. Applying these fabrics into fashion creates unusual and intricate fashion garments.

Three cheers to Jolis Paons for designing this absolutely beautiful and clever paper dress. Jolis says:

For my Creative Processes class I designed and made this paper dress purely out of phone book paper! I pleated, stuck, sewed, and glued everything by hand.

Thanks to David for assistance/singing alongness.

Cliff Muskiet’s World of Stewardess Uniforms

Here’s a fantastic website dedicated to the most awesome collection of stewardess uniforms ever.  Website owner, Cliff Muskiet says:

Ever since my early childhood, I have been interested and fascinated by the world of aviation. I used to collect everything that wore an airline name or logo, such as posters, postcards, stickers, timetables, safety cards and airplane models.

Sometime in 1980 I was given my first uniform by one of my mother’s friends. I was so excited and I wanted to have more uniforms. In 1982 I heard that two charter airlines were introducing new uniforms. I wasted no time, I called these airlines and as a result I was invited to pick up a set of old uniforms. Between 1982 and 1993 I didn’t do much to obtain any more uniforms, something I really regret now as I could have had many many more! Most of my uniforms were obtained between 1993 and today. At the moment my collection contains more than 800 different uniforms from various airlines worldwide.
