Space15Twenty! Today! Now! Until 3:30ish! Come get your fall wardrobe in order…

some excellent advice for you gents out there.
mostexerent:

Sartorial whatevers you can learn from the always stylish JD as seen at NYFW S/S 2012:
-Wear a v-neck sweater under a sportcoat as opposed to a v-neck tee/scoop neck tee/tee anything to avoid looking like you just stepped out of a Las Vegas strip club. (Cinnamon, if you’re reading this, the child support check is in the mail)
-Everyone loves an odd sportcoat, but it’s a ballsy move to pull off.  If you’re gonna do it stick with a more understated pattern in understated colors (for example the black and white miniature hounds tooth seen above).  Jackets such as these hide stains real well FYI.
-Learn how to hem your own pants or drop a little coinage at the tailor/seamstress.  Everyone’s rolling their shit these days and that’s okay, but if you want to stand out go as DIY as you see fit.
-As long as you’re not wearing a suit, sneakers are fine.  Yes, even with trousers.  Just make sure your kicks are of the classic variety like JD’s Vans slip-ons.
-If you’re wearing a suit because you want to wear a suit, have some fun with it.  A faja belt keeps things casual and what you do with your collar is your own prerogative.
-Lead by example.

Well, you look so pretty in it
Honey, can I jump on it sometime?
Yes, I just wanna see
If it’s really that expensive kind
You know it balances on your head
Just like a mattress balances
On a bottle of wine
Your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat

“French women don’t dress to be sexy. Of course we do dress to seduce — that’s different from trying to ‘catch’ a man by wearing flamboyant clothes. The basic attitude is different. A French woman never feels she’s offering herself. There’s never a sense of surrender, but an attitude of ‘I belong to me’.”

Ellen Wallace’s article Secrets of French Girls

just came across this new-ish dirty beaches song, which nicely samples a stellar françoise hardy song.  for your listening pleasure, the new…

and the old.

We already saw Björk driving a car whilst listening to her forthcoming single Crystalline, but here is a better quality snippet of that new song. The single should be out later this month (June 30, apparently); can’t wait to hear this in full.

UPDATEAudio replaced with the full song. Björk reclaims whatever throne she used to have.

Congratulations to whoever had “Bjork leads Aphex Twin revival” on the rock critic office pool, you win the big jackpot.

Today’s theme is apparently excellent new music by established artists. The breakbeat flurry at the end of this track is spectacular. The futuristic sounds of ten (fifteen?) years ago still sound futuristic. Probably because people stopped believing in the future right around the time that IDM went out of style.

not vintage, not fashion, but definitely amazing.
