Our man Floyd (far right) is the display artist at our Rush St. store in Chicago and he's one half of hip-hop act C4. Worlds collided for him when C4 opened up for Peanut Butter Wolf (on a stage he designed) the nite Wolf and his crew came to town on their Badd Santa tour.

The Pop Manifesto

The Pop Manifesto

While dividing her time between Australia and NYC, Ilirjana Alushaj runs The Pop Manifesto. On it's fourth issue, The Pop Manifesto is an incredible online magazine that features some of the best up and coming designers, musicians and even models.

Westwood Teams Up With Melissa

Westwood Teams Up With Melissa

Vivienne Westwood has unveiled her new collaboration with Melissa, an amazing shoe company who work mainly in plastic. I can't wait for these to drop because while not everyone can afford a pair of Westwood's own shoes (my VW pirate boots are the best ever), they will definitely be able to pick up a pair of these. If you like what you hear, we carry Melissa already!

The Bubblegum Sequencer

Making beats with bubblegum (and a camera and a computer...but that's beside the point).

Hedi Slimane Fashion Diary

Hedi Slimane Fashion Diary

What you might not know about Hedi Slimane is that he started out taking photographs. Fashion came next and he pretty much broke that mold at that. Now that he's no longer at Dior, a few books, art shows and eventually a new clothing line are on the horizon. Until then, you can find his latest work on his Fashion Diary.

What's big for men this season? Antwerp designer Ann Demeulemeester is claiming a heavy Bob Dylan influence with high water trousers, scarves and suit jackets.

Elk Zine

Elk Zine

Elk Zine is a zine that's 15 issues deep. But it's also appears to be a multi-headed creative movement that also includes art exhibits, books, and films. An art hydra, if you will.

Kelly Smith

Kelly Smith

Australian artist Kelly Smith has been killing it lately with her off the runway watercolors. While she is able to capture the dead on stares of looks we're used to seeing in photographs, she is quickly becoming one of my favorite fashion illustrators.
