I tell this story to everyone, ever since I heard it in a documentary on Art Nouveau. Stop fucking up pretty hats, you bastards!

every time i see this, my smile is renewed

I honestly do like fedoras ><

…It’s amazing what a tangential connection to Alphonse Mucha (who was Bernhardt’s official poster artist for many, many years and was one of the key intellectuals that she used to craft her image) can do for my opinion on a piece of clothing.
Incidentally, Bernhardt’s leg that was amputated? Apparently she had a funeral for it.  People act like modern pop stars stars are a totally new radical weird thing but man Fin-de-Siecle Europe was a wild, wild place.
And here’s some images of Bernhardt courtesy of Mucha:


Man, Medea always gets me. What a haunting image.
But damn look at her as the fucking Prince of Denmark. Nnf. 

I always get so pissed off at the whole co-opting of fedoras by the men’s rights movement because it wasn’t really until the fedora started going out of fashion that it became a men’s hat. Throughout its heyday of the first four decades of the 20th century it was pretty much always a unisex hat, as it was in the 1980s when it started to tentatively almost come back into fashion

I’ve told you before, I tell at least 40 students every semester, I’ll repost it every fucking time it comes up, until it Sinks In:MRA’s wearing fedoras and claiming them as “Men’s Hats” is one of the most succinct arguments I can give for feminism.

Atelier Elvira, Munich, Germany

August Endell (German, 1871-1925), Built 1898; Destroyed 1944

August Endell was a self-taught architect who worked with Hermann Obrist to design this photography studio. The Atelier Elvira studio was the first woman-owned company in Germany. The stylized dragon on the facade offended Nazi aesthetic sensibilities and was chipped away in 1937. Then the building was bombed to the ground during World War II.

The whiplash Jugendstil lines remind me of:

This building was also referred to as the “dragon building” if I remember.

Hermann Obrist (Swiss, 1862-1927)

In addition to his work as a sculptor and textile artist, Obrist founded a school for design in Munich. His “whiplash” designs were an important influence on Jugenstil and Art Nouveau. Obrist wrote of seeing an ethereal vision of a heavenly city when he was a young man. An otherworldly, visionary quality characterizes his work.

I have no way to tell if this is an actual Mucha piece :p but I did come across it in researching pics. It’s a “Kola Clement” menu design by Mucha supposedly.
