The Swedish electro pop duo, The Knife, wrote music for an electro-opera about the world seen throught the eyes of Darwin. Check it out around 5:54 for classic Knife. The set design and costumes look amazing.

Wig Maker Charlie Le Mindu Spring 2010. A touch of Surrealism or insanity?
The above image is reminiscent of Udo Kier’s coat in Andy Warhol’s Blood For Dracula.
Interesting vision of fashion of the year 2000 from 1930s a perspective. At about 1:02, the narrators delivery of “ooh swish” sounds remarkably like the “oh snap” of nineties, which actually dates back to the early eighties. The men’s fashion of the future got it close with the phone, radio, coins, and candy for cuties. Flash forward 2007: Cell phone, iPod, credit card, and Viagra. Flash foward 2009: iPhone, coins, Viagra. I have to say that I do like the idea of the electric belt that adapts the body to climactic changes. Then, the choice to wear flip flops with a down jacket, that’s seen so often on the streets of San Francisco, will not seem so ridiculous and just be ridiculed as a really bad fashion choice.
