    ... searching memory; two blogs I liked were: http://sanforized.blogspot.com - and https://sanforized.tumblr.com realising how much Tumblr is a forebear for instagram in its 'roll' format... and yes, it is basically a dealer's window; but interesting objects... another, again linked directly to a producer; the post overalls blog brought some 'spark-joy' as, in some posts, he goes through his own earlier designs, his collection of bits and bobs, and is pretty upfront over the design process and source material... but yes, blogs as 'how-to' manuals-advertorials vs forum users giving sometimes rosy sometimes unvarnished experience and/or actual fits and real log of wear... a different set of knowledge/s... a different requirement of attentional economies...

    The tight walk / minefield to think around is the tension by which the 'moderns' defined themselves as breaking with tradition, and yet did so often through the pilfering / reworking / cultural appropriation of so-called 'traditional' cultures. Thus the West comes to be seen as the site for fashion-as-modernity, and yet it does so through accessing other cultures who are then locked into positions of being bound to 'heritage'. Thinking otherwise around new/old, modern/traditional also requires a reckoning with historical imbalances... Jamie Morgan, the photographer responsible for catching some of those key Buffalo images [styled by Ray Petri] worked fairly recently [see here and here] with Graces Wales Bonner [a designer credited with bringing diasporic narratives to the catwalk] - so I don't think that conversation is closed... I personally think the Japanese relation to American style is a very interesting aspect of this narrative; in terms of being faithful copies, a repetition of the same rather than the infinite spawning of micro-variations of difference [if you remember what was at stake in the K-Hole 'Youthmode' / normcore text I shared a while back...], but also a degree of Eastern romanticism/exoticism of the West rather than the other way round... as well as this issue of memory I cited from Jansen; memory as a rebellion against the steam-roller of the new [as long as this memory doesn't sink into swamps of nostalgia or inert narratives of lost edens] ... There is also a sense that it is an interesting uniform [exact reproductions of obscure moments in the history of the 5 pocket jean] to wear in a period where there is only the perpetual-present, where the past has become a randomised-personalised google search and we live in what Mark Fisher calls the ‘slow cancellation of the future’…

    there is a certain pleasure in terrorising people with essentially the same outfit on repeat for years now [with minute variations...] - although the young-uns seem most taken with the m65 military liner [I think given the flood of the quilting design on the highstreet at present]
