As a brand police officer from time to time, I love seeing a company that doesn’t take its visual self so seriously.

For those that attended the talk I curated and moderated during Social Media Week 2010, you’ll remember Alexandra Palmer, Senior Curator of Textiles & Costume at the Royal Ontario Museum, talking about the technological shifts that changed fashion. The zipper was one such shift she spoke about.

Imagine your life without it…
