1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    just found out the leather pants from S/S12 are made out of Cupro. Probably keeps your balls from sweating. Also means they are priced accordingly.

    Yeah, that probably makes sense. I couldn't imagine walking around NYC in dark leather pants when it's warm out. Sounds like a fungal infection waiting to happen.

    Geller, probably unsurprisingly, pays a lot of attention to how fabrics breathe, which is definitely helpful when you're layering a lot. Tencel, for instance, turns up in a lot of his stuff. It's a good alternative to something like polyester.

    And this might be helpful if you're not really familiar with cupro or tencel. From http://fabricstockexchange.com/blog/resources/fiber-dictionary/

    Cupro - The European cousin of tencel , Cupro is also somewhat similar to rayon in that it is reprocessed cellulose. Like tencel and rayon, the base material for cupro is a regenerated cellulose fiber . Cupro gets its name from cuprammonium, the process that is used to process the wood pulp or cotton linters that are its base material. In this process, the wood pulp or cotton liners are dissolved in an ammoniac copper oxide solution. Cupro fabric breathes like cotton, drapes beautifully, and feels like silk on your skin. Its slinky, curve-hugging drape makes it great for elegant dresses and blouses.

    Tencel - Created from wood pulp, Tencel is very soft with great drape. It’s usually a medium weight fabric that suitable for pants, skirts and jackets. (Or if you're bored, you can learn even more about tencel here: http://www.lenzing.com/en/fibers/tencel.html)

    Some more S/S 2012 images from different angles, with different lighting. You can see the bottoms a lot better in these.

    There it is. They definitely have their place, but it is not on my feet.
