Koniakow Cooperative is a group of craftsmen in Poland that makes exquisite crochet lace. They traditionally made fine lace for the ecclesiastical men, but as the demand declined, they switched to making sexy lace lingerie to sustain their business. Their lace is beautiful but I just could not post their lingerie pictures because they look too much like Eastern European girls posing for soft porn. On the other hand, these that I found through google are quite cool.
“In 1919, Thayaht designed The TuTa, which he called “the most innovative, futuristic garment ever produced in the history of Italian fashion” (wikipedia)
“I do like the idea of all of us wearing rectangles as proposed by ljh. Kind of like what the Russian constructivists and Thayaht (Italian futurist) proposed, no? Totalitarian dress codes – bring it on! Because, let’s face it, fashion hasn’t offered much personal choice for a long time, if ever (read Sustainable Fashion and Textiles: Design Journeys); time to get honest and decisive about it, and legislate!”
