I blame my friend Igg for this one, as she asked us to choose between two dresses on Twitter, and I just *had* to look at what else was on the website she linked to.
Oh, serious dress envy. I really want this one. No budget for it, like, but it’s stunning (if you wear the belt with it, otherwise it’s an attractively patterned sack). This Japanese Bird Print Drapey Maxi Dress does exactly what it says on the tin. Not for 18andEast the trend of giving frocks girls’ names or whathaveyou. No, full on Ronseal. Gawd bless ‘em.
Costiness:£30 (in the sale, so hurry) from 18andEast
Does what it says on the tin: Nike trainers used as sound controllers. Only in Japan?
From the comments: “Indeed the shoes used in the video are the real sound controllers. Tomoaki Yanagisawa of 4nchor5 la6 was responsible for the hardware part. He added flexible and accelerometer sensors to the shoes. Daito Manabe of rhizomatiks did the sound programming with Max. They were both commissioned by Wieden + Kennedy Tokyo for this project.”
Looks and sounds pretty fun to me. More info on Max music/multimedia programming software:
It’s something I want to learn how to use at some point, though the learning curve looks pretty steep.
