Cake is the best fashion video I have ever seen. This 20 minutes long video shows you a girl eating a whole cake while wearing AF Vandervorst. That cake sure looks delicious. Made by Fly16x9.

Here’re a few stills from the video.

And here is an other video called Cakes. It’s the same idea, but a compilation of 6 girls each eating a cake.

Computer Vision Dazzle Makeup

March 31st, 2010

Adam Harvey is currently writing his thesis at the ITP and his topic is Computer Vision Dazzle. He’s researching and developing privacy enhancing counter technology, to protect individual privacy for everyone. So here you can find some makeup patterns which make it impossible for the OpenCV library and it’s Haar cascade files, to detect a face. Fun times ahead!

About this image:

Images with a red square tested positive, a face was found
Images without a red square tested negative, no face was found
Images under the section “TEST PATTERNS” are made according to results of the Haar deconstruction
Images under “RANDOM PATTERNS” are random doodles made without the anti-face detection patterns in mind
Images underneath the “NO PATTERNS” heading are left untouched to show that the face detection works well on simple line drawings

Gizmo Skirt

This Gizmo Skirt by Brian Lichtenberg will only be made after you pay $2,100. I guess I like the Dream On coat by Viktor & Rolf better.

Maison Martin Margiela Atelier Artisanal

December 29th, 2009

I’ve featured many different Artisanal collections by Maison Martin Margiela before. The collection is always very limited and made by hand. All the designs are made of “found objects” like ski gloves, elastic cords or fake eyelashes. And that’s what I mostly found interesting about it. This video shows you the atelier where those pieces are made. We’ll see if something will change now that Martin left the Maison.

Sculptural Photography

December 23rd, 2009

The Polish photographers Szymon Roginski and Kasia Korzeniecka worked together to create these images for the “O Mia O” Spring Summer 2009 collection of Ania Kuczynska. First they photographed the collection which they then cut up and transformed into 3d objects. The result was photographed again and used for the “O Mia O” collection.
