Ok, check out these amazing tights. A brilliant idea. So many people are all about silk screening t-shirts. These ladies have brought silk screening to tights. Ta da! I know a friend who has a pair and they look amazing actually being worn. Their site features a series of really beautifully curated images of patterns, well work a gander. Oh and I love their logo too.

Hey the MLE!
When I was visiting Glasgow this summer I checked out the brand new "Riverside Museum: Scotland's Museum of Transport and Travel." It was a great museum, totally recommend. While I was there, I discovered some models of ships with something wonderful called "dazzle camouflage" (see my photo of the model on top).
Did a bit of research and of course there are many designers and various hipsters that are all over this already. You can see dazzle camo inspired textiles, notebook covers, cars, scooters etc etc. but regardless...
For a bit of background, this was developed primarily in the First World war for "confusion rather than concealment." Sculptors, artists, and set designers designed this camouflage, testing first on small wooden models viewed through a periscope in a studio.
Sure it's effectiveness was constantly in question, blah blah blah. But the ships looked super cool and the crew loved it, which helped to boost morale.
Picasso, the modest man that he was, tried to take credit for dazzle camouflage, which seemed to him a quintessentially Cubist technique.

This is a bit scattered up like my brain right now. Going to the US of A tomorrow morning very early to meet our client in Baltimore. Really looking forward to meeting everyone and seeing their new facilities.
I got the email above awhile ago, all HTML. Saved it because I thought it was interesting. Not sure why, maybe its because there are no spaces, and complete random upper and lower case with numbers too, no repetition. It went on and on and on. Thought I'd post it, maybe one day we'll be looking through our archives and we'll use it for something. :)
I know you'll appreciate this my friend,
