The Williams Record: New style Instagram features underrepresented student fashions . “Cris Young ’22, who spearheaded the project, proposed the concept on her personal finsta. Young had initially applied to work for Humans of Williams (an account modeled after Brandon Stanton’s popular Humans of New York page) but was not accepted. Young then decided to create an alternative account dedicated to style and inspired by @fashionatbrown from Brown University.”
South China Morning Post: Fashion celebrity and Instagram star Japanese grandfather, 84, shows age is no barrier to being hip. “His orange trousers are appropriately baggy, his trainers are the latest release and the yellow-lensed glasses are so hot they’re cool. He tops the ensemble with a brand-name baseball cap and a casual, almost ironic smile – and he has every reason to smile. He is 84 years old, is a retired teacher who lives in one of the most rural areas of northern Japan and has not once mooched moodily along a catwalk.”
Google Blog: Now Image Search can jump-start your search for style. “Image Search is full of pics to help you find inspiration—whether it’s places to travel, items to purchase or shots of your favorite celebs, art and memes. But when it comes to fashion, it’s hard to know where to start. That’s why today, we’re introducing a new feature called ‘style ideas’ in the Google app for Android and mobile web, which will surely help boost your search style IQ. Now while perusing fashion product images, Image Search will surface a grid of inspirational lifestyle images and outfits that showcase how the product can be worn in real life.” Style: one of the few things I’ve never searched for.
