Another festival season banger has been released this week and I couldn’t be more supportive of this collab. SF-based outdoor brand ALITE Designs has teamed up with Free People to create a two-person dome tent, complete with an upbeat floral pattern intrend-driven colors inspired by Free People’s new collection.
Teva, the OG sport sandal gods, will debut a new limited-edition offering of its iconic sport sandals throughout the spring and summer of 2013. This is excellent news if you are interested in looking sharp, and maintaining optimum comfort while walking, hiking or cruising around town. Teh-Vuh, not Tee-Vuh –say it with me– which translates to “nature” in Hebrew, created the original sport sandal in 1984 when a Grand Canyon river guide blended the “best parts of a shoe and sandal”. The outdoor community has never skipped a beat when it comes to their affinity for the sport sandal, and in recent years the fashion industry has also started to pay attention to this functional silhouette.
Insightalways makes me smile. They approach each season with a very distinct goal…to design pieces that they want to wear with influences that are as far flung as outer space and as familiar as a day at the beach. For their men’s Spring 12 collection, they took inspiration from a pretty eclectic mash-up of locations and paid homage to the both the vibrancy of Mexican coastlines and the raw streets of New York City for a tightly curated collection called New Yawn City.
Good t-shirts, like good songs, are meant to be worn/played on repeat. When I hear a song that resonates with me, I listen to it over and over again until I have completely absorbed it on a cellular level. When I find a t-shirt I love, the same rules apply. I wear the shirt for a few days in a row, so it feels lived in. So it feels like me. When I read that Panda Bear had designed some shirts for Altamont, the first thought that crossed my mind was how technically, I could wear something designed by a band I like while simultaneously listening to their music on repeat. Forever. … Read More
I had the most amazing tie-dyed cruiser when I was a little girl. It was purple and blue with fat pink wheels and it was my prized possession. When I rode it around my neighborhood, I wore a pair of Hang Ten terry cloth shorts to complete my total skate-meets-surf-meets-Brooklyn look. I know for a fact that I have been trying to reproduce that exact outfit/moment for most of my adult life, which is why I am stoked to report that Hang Ten is taking a shot at reviving its storied past with a new collection called Hang Ten Gold.
Every little girl loves to play dress-up, so when Hannah from Flagship Agency hit me up about getting involved with a shopping event that The Well — a retail concept, hair salon and event space in DTLA — was throwing, I was like hayyyyy…sign me up.
In honor of the official premiere last night and opening in Los Angeles and NYC today, I thought it would be perfect timing to post about the most anticipated movie of the year…Spring Breakers. Directed by Harmony Korine and starring Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, Rachel Korine, and James Franco the film has sparked some major haterade-buzz around the globe.
Rockport has officially announced that the queen of effortless cool, Erin Wasson, has signed on for another season as a brand ambassador for its Spring 2013 campaign “Style in Motion”. The collection of footwear that Wasson will promote focuses on connecting the worlds of motion and movement, as Rockport continues to carry a torch for its design-mantra “style made comfortable”.
My love affair with Baggu first started when I purchased one of their basic canvas backpacks at Bird a few years ago. There was something so sensible and appealing to me about that bag, so I started carrying it on the regs (in lieu of a purse) all over NYC and on the road as I tracked trendz around the globe. I love a technical pack for outdoor adventures (obvs) but for daily use, I’ve been known to sport a floral bookbag or even a drawstring duffel.
