"In our tight-assed, isolated western modernity, the dancefloor offers a thrilling escape from the self, a cathartic group experience that feels nothing like the rest of your carrot-and-stick life under capitalism. Collective rhythm acts as an escalator to sheer abandon. The true energy of a dancefloor is a wild, transient thing that can’t be handled or branded, that generates power and costs nothing."
— Ian McQuaid
"The Prada spring 2014 collection, which was as loud as they come with its rainbows, embellishment, and face motifs, might spark DIY versions of painted-face dresses and cutoff tube socks by teenaged fashion junkies. A young designer, whose clothes happened to be snapped on a street-style It girl, suddenly picks up a stockist or two. The final destination of these street-style JPEGs aren’t desktops, blogs, Tumblrs, or social-media channels. It’s the moodboards of fashion designers and the wardrobes of fashion enthusiasts all around the world, and thus the dialogue becomes two-way."
