As for his main line, expansion into menswear is on the cards. ‘It’s very different but it’s definitely something I would like to pursue,’ he says. In the meantime, W10 is his baby. But, be fair. You addressed the issue in Libya as though it only involved its citizens. Libyan people that have rebelled against their nation dictator have done much and sacrificed much.
This isn just a store relocation, however. The new NoHo store is now Original Penguin global flagship, and the concept will eventually be rolled out to all of brand stores (including the other New York City location on Sixth Avenue opposite Bryant Park) as well as the 20 or so units planned to open worldwide this year alone. The updated Original Penguin has been tapped as an expansion vehicle for parent company Perry Ellis International, so expect to see more of the brand stores appearing in malls and shopping areas soon.
The city of Denton, Texas, has acted as a low key hip northern cousin to Austin for a while now, and it’d be a mistake to assume the scene there is homogenously country. Exhibit A: the kinky, spacey pop riffs of Pearl Earl. They’re the B 52s of the DFW metro area, with silver jumpsuits and songs about exorcisms and Ouija board fonts and the post election Bizarro World we currently occupy, as on “Meet Your Maker”: “Why do they keep shooting to kill and rainbow love is seen as mentally ill?/Well I wanna meet your maker/I wanna meet your maker and ask him/How could they even vote for a man who paid a million for his tan?” SS.
By the middle ages, the wealthy were using elaborateSome historians believe that wallpaper was introduced as a less expensive substitute for tapestries, but we find that claim dubious for three reasons.First, it is unlikely that paper, even backed with linen as it was in its earliest versions, would do as good as heavy tapestries to ward off drafts.Secondly, the claim ignores the fact that the Chinese glued decorative rice paper on their walls as early as 200 BC, and developed color block printing prior to the 5th century, predating the European practice by about a thousand years. The Arabs learned to block print paper from the Chinese and the skill had spread quickly throughout the mideast long before it reached Europe.Thirdly, wallpaper did not became very popular in England until Henry VIII’s excommunication from the Catholic Church resulted in a fall in trade with Catholic Europe. Unable to import tapestries and lacking any tapestry manufacturers in England, the English gentry and aristocracy turned to using wallpaper to embellish their living spaces.The Early Years through the 1600sThe Early YearsThe earliest known record of wallpaper in the Western world dates to 1481, when King Louis XI of France commissioned Jean Bourdichon to paint 50 rolls of paper with angels on a blue background so that he could take his wall decorations with him as he moved from one castle to another.
