ABOVE: Happy Halloween from pre-Madonna.
(Images by Colin Patrick Smith for CULTUREEDIT/Tom of Finland Store)
The F/W '19/'20 collections from the Tom of Finland Store, shot by Colin Patrick Smith, are brought to visceral life by Terry Miller.
They include work from queer designers Walter Van Beirendonck, Bernhard Willhelm, Lazoschmidl and Comme des Garçons.
WELL worth a look ...

Last week, I made time to see not one but two NYC-oriented films, each offering unique portraits of the city, and unique storytelling that left me struggling to think of comparables. For that reason alone — I always give points to the nonformulaic —you should try to see Cubby, the debut feature by Mark Blane, and Downtown 81, a fairy-tale-like feature shot in 1980-1981 and recently restored for release by Metrograph Pictures.
Whenever I post a pic of Steve Grand, some unoriginal naysayer oh-so-uncleverly comments that they thought Steve didn't want to be objectified, or snarkily says he should be focusing on music exclusively (you know, because Madonna, Rihanna, Ricky Martin, Beyoncé, they don't ever pose sexily).
But looks like Steve is laughing all the way to the spank bank.
ABOVE: That picture is strictly to recognize Halloween this week.
