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...

The day was marked...

In Light Of The Magna Carta Holy Grail Album Art, We Pick Our Favorite Rap Covers

Earlier this week, Jay-Z unveiled the album art for his upcoming Magna Carta Holy Grail and it looked pretty fucking bland for such a grandiose musician. That is, until he released the actual art today next to the real Magna Carta in Salisbury Cathedral (meta mind melt). Kanye, Jay’s de facto Bizarro...

Playlist: Comedowns and Rubdowns

I took some MDMA a few hours ago and now I’m having the inevitable come-down that I signed up for when I made the (correct) decision to mess around with some substances. It feels like I’m a robot, and typing is the only thing distracting me from that Dementor-friendly soul...

Tunez: Friends x Dum Dum Girls

Fuck! Summer’s coming to a close (kinda) and I haven’t snatched up a boo for the impending coldness set to strike the northeast – maybe i’m thinking too far ahead.
