I’m taking this opportunity to wax poetic on the topic of nostalgia. It seems that the concept of this blog is based around that fact but while I was cruising around the world wide web I was particularly thrown with the impact that previous movements and images have on our current society. Dating back through the 20s-70s, this is what I’m using as my inspiration for life on this cloudy L.A. day.
Andy Warhol created that concept that everyone would be famous for 15 minutes. In the 60s and throughout the 70s the famous pop artist surrounded himself with socialites, actress, and artists of all types and created art in a place he called “the factory”. Some of the most famous “factory” people are Edie Sedgewick, Nico, Lou Reed and many others. While this was well before grunge times, the energy of the creative spirit can be seen to have an amazing impacts on genres to come…
While cruising around on more blogs when I should be going to bed I found another gem to add to the inspiration pot. This shoot for Saint and Sinner A/W 2011 line has such a dark goth twist with a horror fashion slant. This is just the vibe I need to prepare for the gloomy days of fall ahead.
