Two tidbits of interest to my fashion friends. First is word of Valentino’s archives. With respect to that there’s a plus and a minus and another minus. The plus is you can download it (site plays an annoying midi all the while). Minus is that the archive is software driven (that you download). Second minus is that it seems to be buggy (v.1). I use two monitors; after installation, clicking anything in my second monitor minimized Valentino in the other one. Also, my shipping program and Adobe Pro commenced wildcat strikes so I had to uninstall. I hope your experience is better, lots of folks are raving about it.
Second item of interest: the most expensive tee shirt in the world (as depicted at right) Yep, $400,000.00 worth. As befitting such a discriminating item, allow 28 days for delivery -’cause it’s bespoke ya know- for the firm to “exceed your expectations”. On the other hand, shipping is free!
Below you’ll find the usual sampling of content that’s been published this week in history over the past six -soon to be seven- years. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, keep the archives page handy; it lists every entry ever published.
