rosie & deondre : keep it cool.

com·fort /ˈkəmfərt/ noun noun: comfort 1. a state of physical ease and freedom from pain or constraint.  I recently pulled a few pieces from the ULIHU collection to shoot this editorial with models Deondre and Rosie. Comfort was the idea. This was probably one of my favorite shoots. No one held back — everything was...
Creatures of Comfort x S/S 2014 x NYFW

Creatures of Comfort x S/S 2014 x NYFW

The Creatures of Comfort SS14 NYFW presentation last Sunday afternoon was a daydream at a desolate rocky seaside. As soon as I walked in, my attention turned toward the hand-dyed fabrics that draped the walls of the Maritime Hotel‘s patio. The strategically stacked rocks, cutouts of jetties, cool breeze and sunshine streaming down from the...
When Kesh Invites You to WestGay, You go to WestGay.

When Kesh Invites You to WestGay, You go to WestGay.

  Kesh was in town (NYC) a few weeks ago promoting her collaborative collection with American Apparel and of course I was stoked because it meant I got to see my girl — it had been too long. Anyway, Kesh calls me up a the night of her set asking for headphones, mind you, I...
Throwback Thursday: I Can't Believe I Used to Dress Like That!

Throwback Thursday: I Can’t Believe I Used to Dress Like That!

No, really, I can’t believe I used to dress like that. Haha. The rectangular glasses, the tee from Threadless, the colored rubber bracelet, dang. And I know for sure I was wearing my grey and white checkered vans — destroyed beyond recognition with my damn pinky toe hanging out. LOL. Just so terrible, so I’m...

all the pretty girls #11 : Lais Ribeiro

all the pretty girls #11 : Lais Ribeiro

Lais Ribeiro is unquestionably the hottest mom living right now. With cheekbones sharp enough to cut glass and a smile to die for, this 20 year old model has already taken the industry with full force.                          ^ THIS IS NOT LAIS RIBEIRO. OPEN YOUR EYES.                Even without make-up this chick can’t...
Decked Out: SAINT LAURENT x Men's

Decked Out: SAINT LAURENT x Men’s

It’s not often that I find a label I would feel comfortable being completely decked out in, but SAINT LAURENT maybe slowly changing my mind about such things. I went through and selected some of my favorites. Really stoked about the gold detailing on the sneakers and the general reworked “classic” look to the combat...
The Best of Conceptual Footwear: from Panel Wood to Perspex

The Best of Conceptual Footwear: from Panel Wood to Perspex

  (Concrete Boots AW13 from Black Black Gold) There is this horrendous cliché that every woman is either a “shoe girl” or a “bag girl”– meaning that we can simply bifurcate the entire female population into either being obsessed with shoes or handbags. The saying is obviously outmoded and irrelevant because there are, of course,...

Dear Met Gala, ‘Punk’ and ‘Goth’ Fashion Are Not the Same. Or: How the Met Gala was an Epic Punk Fashion Fail

BY: STEPHANIE MALIK You do NOT shut down Dame Vivienne Westwood. While admittedly not the most shocking headline in the world, the fact is this year’s Met Gala, celebrating the opening of the new “Punk: Chaos to Couture” exhibition at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, did not only fail in the ordinary way we...
Editorial Lust: Chloe Norgaard's Smile x I-D Magazine

Editorial Lust: Chloe Norgaard’s Smile x I-D Magazine

I saw this editorial the other day and found it so refreshing. Not only does model Chloe Norgaard pop like popcorn with her rebel rainbow inspired hair, but her smile is so invigorating and she’d decked out in Dries Van Noten Spring/Summer 2013 — drooling! One of my favorite editorials of the season for sure....
Daily New: Astrid Andersen x A/W 2013 is incredible.

Daily New: Astrid Andersen x A/W 2013 is incredible.

The Autumn/Winter 2013 collection of Astrid Andersen speaks volumes while not relying on crappy word tees to do so… This is exactly what I’m into these days and I think that such forward movement in fashion is exactly what 2013 should be about. This collection is so “basketball luxury” — I swear this collection makes...
