Android Fashion by Yuima Nakazato

I don’t write about fashion on Coilhouse as much as I used to. Haute Macabre and Stylecunt have really stepped up to fill the niche for the kind of fashion coverage I craved when Coilhouse first began. That said, something about the work of Yuima Nakazato felt exciting enough to warrant a post here. “Futuristic” fashion may feel incredibly dated, but I never get tired of seeing impossible heels, transluscent garments lit from within by pulsing lights, and stylized metallic augmentations of the body’s contours. I’d love to see a collaboration between Nakazato and photographer Benedict Campbell.

Other than that, things are pretty quiet over here this week. Mer, Zo and I convene in San Diego tomorrow to plot your doom. Ross is once again safely locked up at the catacombs after being allowed a brief visit to the orthodontist, the alectryomancer and the local screening of Harry Potter. David asked us to expense an armored personnel carrier – not sure what that’s all about. Will sort it when we get back.

    Well, Nadya, coups don’t just happen by themselves, dammit… Uh, I mean, I need it for research. For an article. On… stuff. Yeah, that’s the ticket…

    On a completely unrelated side note, I’ve always liked being called Maximum High Generallissimo x10.

    Thanks for the future fashion eye candy. I’ve always found it interesting how images of “the world of tomorrow,” whatever we think that looks like, keep slipping into today’s fashion, but never quite become The Way We Dress (except for some lucky few).

    Enjoy San Diego, y’all.

    That last bit reminds me a lot of the opening scenes in the classic Qui êtes-vous, Polly Maggoo? only taken to a dead serious conclusion. Beautiful really if no doubt deadly at the wrong angle. I kinda like that. Like how they went for more than just the easy eye candy…it really wraps into you.

    “David asked us to expense an armored personnel carrier…”

    So it begins I see. Time to ready the troops for the coming storm. As soon as they finish that last dungeon in their AD&D campaign that is. After that…it’s ON!
