This is a lovely short video from Barbara Anastacio about the power of uniforms in women's dress and fashion.
Pitti Uomo is one of Italy's biggest fashion menswear shows and the spot of a huge gathering of stylishly dressed men. And photographers. Both of which show up to enhance the other's career. As Aaron Christian would say in the video above, it's a "peacock parade" -- an over-the-top show of looks not for each other but for the camera. And eventually, for the whole world to see.
Levi's has announced that this coming fall, the Project Jacquard smart jacket will be released in a limited beta testing phase. The hope is for the jacket, with smart fabric woven into it, to go into full production by Spring 2017.
The jacket allows wearers to control smartphone functions with hand motions. The concept developed in partnership with Google is targeted at cyclists who need to keep their eyes on the road while still answering calls, getting directions, and changing music on their ride.
