I was looking at the New York Times fashion feature Apres Rehab: A Lovely Sobriety by Cathy Horyn and deconstructed the first photo (at the top). Aside from the cool little lighting trick and trying to figure out where the photo was taken, I looked at the credits which I will reprint here: Lanvin zip-up silk blouse, $1,090, and Alexander Wang wide-leg herringbone pants, $585, both at Barneys New York. Karen Walker leather belt, $132 at Mick Margo; LaCrasia leather gloves, $200; Patricia Von Musulin hand-carved ebony ring, $825 at Takashimaya; Kelly Christy felt fedora, $300 to order from email@example.com; Chloé leather satchel, $2,595 at Chloé.
Notice anything strange? Yeah me too. Kelly Christy felt fedora, $300 to order from firstname.lastname@example.org. I don’t want to make a bigger deal of this than it already is, but think about it, to order Kelly Christy hats, you can send Kelly Christy an e-mail and literally tell her what you want. Unheard of 15 years ago, we have direct contact with designers who have amazing products but might only have a tiny footprint in retail. Minus the millions of social networking sites, porn and endless e-mail forwards, the internet is damned wonderful.
