MEET WOOD LONDON

As was already mentioned in a previous article, last week we were lucky enough to sit next to Bethan Wood, a.k.a. the furniture and accessories designer behind WOOD London, at the KTZ runway show at London Fashion Week and struck up a conversation. Although Wood only graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2009,...

Even more...

LONDON FASHION WEEK S/S 2012 (I hope u own some leather and/or latex)

As many of you know, this past Wednesday marked the end of London Fashion Week. I was lucky enough to score an international press pass purely based on my previous work covering New York fashion week for New York-based magazine Scallywag & Vagabond (in other words, by coming up in the results when the registration...

TUNEZ:: WHY INDIANA DOESN’T ALWAYS SUCK//THE LOST BEATSINFACE TAPES + DIEGO’S SICK MIX::

Masks by Jenny Ollikainen, Worn by Jenny Ollikainen and Diego Yanto. Indianapolis 2011.   This past weekend I was playing DJ at a friend’s bank holiday barbecue in London (“bank holiday”=long-weekends where everyone is off work in the UK), and once I got to being too lazy/drunk to DJ song-by-song anymore I put on one...

::Trust::Music video for “Candy Walls”

So I *finally* finished up my degree at Oxford and will have more time from now on to post more regularly. I’ll start off with this amazing song/video I’ve been borderline obsessed with lately by Canadian pop-synth outfit Trust (in part, at least, because I’ve spent the last few weeks of summer riding aimlessly around...

The rise of lo-fi r&b: How to Dress Well, GAYNGS

Hi all–¬† Stephanie here–I now return after a long sabbatical. Was working on exams for my course here at Ox, (which I finally have finished, yes!) so now I am finally free to share with you all of the amazing music I’ve found over the past few months. And I want to begin with a...

Cat eye sunglasses + S.O.S. Band = yes

I can’t stop thinking about cat eye sunglasses and I just love this track “Finest” by the S.O.S. band and couldn’t keep it to myself any longer…. here is my love-collage (and at the bottom you’ll find a link to download “Finest” by S.O.S. Band. my treat.) : From the Prada 2010 “Fantasy book” whatever...

SLEEP ALL DAY/DRIVE ALL NIGHT

Stephanie here to tell you all about Sleep all day/Drive all Night — a great night regularly put on in east London by my friends Louise and Rich under the monikers Louise XIV and The Idol Rich. (I actually met Louise at Oxford as we are both graduate students in philosophy there… see, we are...

Proenza Schouler + The Fly Girlz

Sometimes unlikely or unexpected pairings really work: there’s Harold & Maude, champagne and orange juice, those tiny oxpecker birds and hippos, a majority of Indiana voters in the 2008 Presidential election and rationality…. Then, of course, there are those unlikely combinations that we’re just not too sure about, [RE:Woody Allen and Soon-Yi (kinda creepy), and...

New Museum Spring Gala After Party

So New Museum held its annual Spring Gala followed by an after party held on the 45th floor of a skyscraper with the address  7 World TradeРand I was lucky enough to be invited by the always amazing Antwan (and so did not have to pay the $100 for a ticket!) . The venue...

PUMP UP THE JAM

Hi all, Stephanie here. So, most mornings I wake up with a particular song in my head. The past few months have been dominated by 60′s French pop and Beach House, but this morning was different. This morning was a mishmash of early 90′s dance and r&b. It was something like a conglomeration of “Finally”...
