Guilty Souls – decoding the Glimpse Theory in the Works of Nick Clements


Decoding the Glimpse, as the underlying process in the transmission of subcultural messages concerning the aesthetic of styles referring to the mid 20ieth century.

The theory behind the Glimpse concerns those watershed moments, trigger events, that cause a person to see the world in a slightly different way. It is the vital moment in the transmission of street style. It is subliminal and fleeting.

Character studies based on movie characters from the Hollywood mass produced flicks in the 20’s to 40’s:

  • 1) The detective always asks The Who When Where and How


  • 2) The Professor ain’t never unarmed


  • 3) The casual newspaper reader gets to witness history firsthand


  • 4) The driver always carries his Madame’s bag
