    Worlds Oldest Hats Discovered
    "Venus Wear" may sound like the latest Fifth Avenue fashion trend. In scientific parlance, however, it refers to clothing and hats that were made approximately 27,000 years ago.

    Until recently, it was thought that humans wrapped simple animal skins around themselves at least 50,000 years ago, with woven clothes and textiles invented only around 8,000 B.C.

    Perfumes: Where Do They Come From
    Perfumes: we spend hours choosing them, we wear them, we adore them, they are an essential part of our images. We know all new scents that appear, we know how much they cost and where to buy them, we know what kind to wear at daytime or at night – looks like we know everything about them! Or at least it looked like that till yesterday, when my 6 year old niece watching me put on Dior’s J’adore asked a simple question: “And who invented perfumes?” I realized that except for vague ideas about Ancient Egypte and Rennaissence France I could say actually nothing on the matter!

    A comparative study of extant garments relevant to East Denmark in the mid-to-late 14th Century
    The garments that remain to this day are of several types, and give a relatively good (but not complete) overview of what garments looked like in period. Generally speaking, a person would wear a kirtle over his shirt, then optional overgarments. These could be open (sleeveless) or closed (short or long sleeved) surcotes. There are other types of garments documented such as cotehardies, garnaches and garde-corps. None of these have survived however. Mantles, hoods and hose have not been included here for the moment, but I intend to expand the document with information on these types of garments too.

    Dressing to the right
    For years, men have been bombarded with low-cut bumsters, gaudy tracksuits and blinged-up denims. But a taste for blazers and neck-ties, safari suits and Savile Row tailoring, says Peter Howarth, means skate punks and hardcore hoodies are losing ground to the New Conservatives

    Vive le smoking: how YSL invented the female tuxedo
    There is not a trace of smoke in sight as you enter the imposing doors of the Pierre Berg Yves Saint Laurent Foundation in Paris' chic 16th arrondissement. But take a wander around the darkened rooms of Smoking Forever, its latest exhibition, and you feel you have entered the sultry world of an old-fashioned smoking room - with one exception. The tuxes are for the ladies only.

    The allure of velvet
    Originally made of silk, the finest natural material originating from a silkworm's single filament, velvet is still a beautiful fabric in its modern incarnations.

    It is an exceptional cloth with the third visual dimension of the pile length and the special texture of the cloth that is "as pleasing to the finger as to the eye" ("Velvet: History, Techniques, Fashion" Fabrizio de Marinis, ed. Idea Books, $35)
