Well Threaded is an art and fashion website divided into work and play.
Half the site is for jobs and the other half is for being inspired.
The work keeps the food on the table and the inspiration keeps us hungry.

Ghana in Fog / Jun 17 at 12:31AM PDT

Photography by Paul Octavious

A few years ago, photographer Paul Octavious happened upon the the Ghana National Soccer team practicing in Chicago as a thick fog rolled in.

He captured some nice stills, but more notably is this beautifully spontaneous video.

It's staggering how much good work photographer Martin Vallin has.

He also keeps a nice blog titled Some Kind of Blog for Friends & Likes that features a range of his work: editorial, beauty, collages, still-life, etc. I think you'll like it.

Japanese Hair Hats / Jun 9 at 11:54PM PDT

Nagi Noda and Shinji Konishi

The late Nagi Noda made Shinji Konishi's animal hair hats famous when she immortalized them in the Spring 2006 ad campaign for the Japanese department store/museum Laforet.

Recently, VBS.tv did an interview (above) with Shinji where he explains his bizarre inspiration. Definitely worth a watch.

Muji's new Rhythm website just blows me away. It is so flawlessly executed: the art direction, the styling, the choreography, the music, and even the website itself.

Nobody understands minimal design better than Muji.

Here in the States you're lucky to find a tiny section of Muji products in the corner of the MoMA gift shops, but in Japan Muji is a way of life. Q-Tips, furniture, bicycles, makeup, socks, soft drinks; I'm not sure there exists an object Muji doesn't make.

Really admire these photographs of Charlotte Gainsbourg by Matthew Brookes. Just like her parents, she is so photogenic.

You need flash in order to listen.

Title track, "5:55", from her 2007 album.

Beautifully executed work by Horacio Salinas for a recent Barney's New York catalog.

Be sure to take 5 minutes and pour over his site. Too much good work.

"Andy Warhol (with flower), 1963"

Sad to hear of Mr. Hopper's passing over Memorial Day weekend.

You know, I would have said that the first image that comes to mind when I think of Dennis Hopper would be his role in Apocalypse Now. Now, just months ago after stumbling upon his work for the first time, I'd say, without a doubt, it is his photography.
