Photographs of Clothing and Accessories Frozen in Large Blocks of Ice

Fashion company Pierre Cardin did a marketing campaign earlier this year that revolved around the slogan: “Simply Cool.” It enlisted the help of Brazilian art director Cláudia Xavier and luxury still life photographer Norimich Inoguchi for a series of advertising photographs.

Since July of this year, Nichols has been fighting against the infringement in an attempt to get the designer to pay up.

Photos of Neatly Arranged Outfits Worn by Characters in Famous Movies

Earlier this week we shared a series of photographs by photographer Dinah Fried showing notable meals found in famous novels. It’s difficult to catch the meals when reading the books, especially if they’re only mentioned once or twice, so major props to you if you recognized more than one or two of the meals.

French photographer Candice Milon‘s project La Mode en Grand Écran, or “Fashion on the Big Screen”, is much more accessible. The series shows famous outfits worn by main characters in well known movies, from the snazzy skater style of Marty McFly in Back to the Future to the droog look worn by characters in The Clockwork Orange. The clothing items are arranged neatly on backgrounds of various colors. See how many you can recognize (answers at the end).

Review: Dodge & Burn is a T-shirt Brand Photo Enthusiasts Can Be Proud Of

If you were to start a new clothing brand, who would you target? Athletes? Self-conscious youth? People with more cents than sense?

Earlier this year, NYC-based photographer Ted Rybakowski decided to focus on a relatively untapped demographic: photo enthusiasts who love themselves a good T-shirt. His clothing startup, Dodge & Burn, sells a line of T-shirts adorned with classic analog cameras. While we’ve featured a number of clever photo-centric shirt designs here before, Rybakowski’s brand is the first we’ve seen that focuses entirely on T-shirt fashion for photogs.

Edwardian Sartorialist: Street Fashion Photos from a Century Ago

The Sartorialist might be a big name in street fashion photography these days, but snapping impromptu photos of the latest clothing trends is nothing new. Over a century ago, a photographer named Edward Linley Sambourne did the same kind of photography on the streets of London and Paris using a concealed camera. His images form a beautiful historical record of what people wore that deviates from what people typically think of when they hear “Edwardian fashion“.

Dress Created with Film Strips and LEDs, Turns You Into a Walking Lightbox

The Little Slide Dress by Emily Steel is a geeky photographic take on the classic litte black dress. Created using strips of slide film, the dress also features LED lights that automatically provide a proper amount of illumination based on ambient lighting. When in a bright room, the lights turn off and cause the dress to look like a shiny black dress. When the lights go down, the dress lights up and turns you into a walking lightbox.
