Beach Fashion 2013

For some of us west coastians/southerners it's starting to get hot already, don't say you envy it--because many of us here are certainly not ready to deal with steering wheel burns, boob sweat, and sunglass tan. Anyway, while I can't stop the weather gods, I can at least fantasize about a new gaggle of vintage summer beach fashion finds, right? 1. ETE Swim The St. Tropez Bikini, $275. Talk about ad[...]

Listen to This: Adrian Younge

I heard a song recently and passed it off as some lost remnant from the late 60's which somehow made it under the radar until now. As the music faded out, a woman introduced  this Adrian Younge person, who sounded--a lot younger (no pun intended) than what I had previously heard. As they started chatting, I realized that old soulful voice in the recording was the lead singer of the Delfonics, William[...]

Fashion Icon: Marc Jacobs

From humble grunge beginnings to renowned design powerhouse, Marc Jacobs is one of the quintessential American designers of the 21st century. A native New Yorker, Jacobs was born on April 9, 1963, but quickly had part of his childhood taken because of the death of his father. His mother was mentally ill and unable to properly take care of children, so he was then put in the custody of his grandparent[...]

Twerktastic: Iggy Azalea’s New Video for Work

Love her or hate her, Australian rapper Amethyst Kelly, better known as Iggy Azalea recently made this Brook Candy-tier video for her song "Work." Featuring bootylicious babes, a gaggle of small town rednecks, and a pair of Louboutins, this video is FIERCE. A perfect workout or pick-me-up song--even if this kind of music isn't your thing--tell me it's  not at least a little addicting. The Iggy Azal[...]

Outfit Inspiration: GRIMES Fashion

Claire Boucher, known by the moniker, Grimes, took over the charts last year with her synthy pop hits like "Genesis" and "Oblivion." Her quirky style landed her a spread on Vogue, and a style of her own. Grimes fashion often incorporates almost lolita-esqe pieces with bows, ruffles, or wears pigtails with harsh camouflage or black. Lately she has also been sporting more of a hip-hop aesthetic as we[...]

Listen to This: Andy Stott

Manchester-based Producer, Andy Stott has been making the rounds on the internet for a while now. His last album Luxury Problems was fondly regarded by many as one of the better electronic albums of the 2012. These sexy borderline techno sounds can been heard in Chanel's 2013 Paris Couture Runway Show as well, setting the mood for Karl Lagerfeld's dark swan princesses to glide around the arena. Che[...]

Stuff We Love: A.J. Morgan Eyewear

While I was in New York I kept seeing these shades sprinkled around all the little boutiques I went to, especially on Brooklyn's Bedford Avenue. Now, I've seen my fair share of inexpensive sunglasses, and I'm usually not partial to their designs or colors, so finding a cheap pair is kind of like sifting through garbage sometimes. I ended up buying a pair of A.J. Morgan sunglasses at In God We Trust[...]

True Norwegian Black Denim: Anti Denim’s Experiment with Textiles and Sound

In Norway, Anti Denim, the slightly xenophobic line from Anti-Sweden has decided to take their own stab at creating a unique fusion of art, sound, and denim. During their event last month, aptly titled, Resonance, one single chord rang out as the limited collection was introduced, after a years culmination. The note was translated into denim, from sound to material, and celebrated with a haunting c[...]
