Before starlings roost, their maneuvers create mesmerizing aerial displays. To achieve synchronicity, each bird shadows seven of its nearest neighbors. EARTHFLIGHT: Europe on NATURE on PBS (check local listings) or watch the full episode of EARTHFLIGHT online. 

I love this time of year when the Starlings are around.

dionys moser photographs the alien like landscape of the ethiopian dallol hydrothermal field, a vast area of uplifted thick salt deposits affected by intense fumarolic activity, famous for being the only known volcanic area bellow sea level and for being both the hottest place on the planet, with average annual temperatures well above 30 degrees celsius, and the most colourful, with its pools of a hot sulfuric acid brine and ferrous multicolored salt deposits.

Just, wow.

Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity exhibition opens today at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The exhibit presents a look at the role of fashion in the works of the Impressionists, from the mid-1860s through mid-1880s. Some 80 major figure paintings shown in concert with period costumes, highlight the relationship between fashion and art, during the years Paris emerged as style capital of the world.

Artists of the day, such as Manet, Monet, Renoir and more, sought to express the vibrancy of contemporary life through their stylish subjects. Fashion = Modernity for them. Parallels have been drawn between these painters and current streetstyle photographers/bloggers, the premise being bloggers are now the ones capturing current contemporary urban life through their photos. Check out the Sartorialist viewpoint here.

Two galleries are devoted to the White Dress and the Black Dress, quite interesting that the importance of these 2 fashion staples started over 150 yrs ago. Black dress emerged at this time, away from being a symbol of mourning to become a symbol of elegance and worldly sophistication.

Black being my personal favorite, I was drawn to Lady with Fans, a portrait of Nina de Callias, by Manet. As opposed to the prissy white dresses, now here is someone who looks as though she knows how to enjoy life. The painting was considered scandalous at the time, to express her bohemian artistic nature, and Nina’s estranged husband forbade the painting be shown.

My favorite gallery is Spaces of Modern Life, where the artists start to capture their subjects on the street, at the theatre, during activities of daily life. The similarity rings out to me, the way the fashion world presents itself today… very inspiring show. Anyone with a passion for fashion, and an interest in historical background, will enjoy seeing this. The garment samples on display are often the exact ones shown in the paintings.

Exhibition Dates: Feb 26 - May 27, 2013. For more info see MetMuseum.org.

Hats are back on top. LA Times article.

Hats may once have seemed like a wardrobe staple of the past — an accessory reserved for the ladies of an era when no one left home without a proper head covering.
