It's a dreary, rainy afternoon at the shop and I'm sitting on the front porch enjoying the unusually cool weather. I'm also enjoying my new discovery: Part Nouveau. I've been clicking through this gorgeous study of a blog all afternoon. I love seeing art and fashion history quote itself. All of fashion photography's favorites - Bourdin, Newton, Penn - appear and reappear, but fashion's intersection with fine art and film - Hitchcock, Warhol, Magritte - is well represented too. I guess there really are no new ideas.
