Intergalactic Planetary


"Flash Gordon" vs Rick Owens
Image Source

I meant to post this article last week, but didn't, because I am a slacker blogger. Anyway, I find it interesting the way history mirrors itself, how, as we enter troubled economic times, we once again revert to escapism - looking to the skies for a planet without credit card debt and unpayable mortgages. NY Times notes these themes, which were popular in the Depression, reappearing in today's runways.
