For the short time they've been around, Anzevino and Florence have quickly moved into the closets of women everywhere. Their last collection, titled "Sometimes Catastrophes Become Trophies", is full of the light and fun garments which are perfect for daily wear and making those around you incredibly envious. The long tanks and cut out dresses are some of my favorites and their attention to detail, especially on the coats (one jacket can be worn two different ways, creating a separate look each time), is incredible and no item is overlooked.
Domestic gathered a dozen designers (Dylan Martorell, Geneviève Gauckler, Tado, eBoy, Jeremyville, etc.) together for their Surface 02 collection, which pits the designers against archetypal quality porcelain plates. We're digging this set by Kustaa Saksi. (Via Torc.)
Andrew Kuo is on a tear. He has a informative blog that we've read not only for his music and sports coverage but for the obsessively detailed charts he creates to give his posts context. He is an artist (whose work you might have seen on our gift cards page). And lately it seems that he's being noticed by the intelligensia. His charts have been picked up by the NYTimes and he was featured on Charlie Rose Tomorrow last week. Bright looking future, no?
With a new album on the way and more catsuits than you can imagine, Lovefoxxx, the singer of Cansei De Ser Sexy, is featured in this months issue of Dazed & Confused. And if you're craving even more CSS coverage, check out this epic video catching up with Lovefoxxx at her flat in Brazil and read about what inspires her most. You might find out where she gets those awesome catsuits.
If there is a manual out there about how to properly support your scene, then Fecal Face are the folks who wrote it. Longtime proponents of the Bay Area art scene, they just opened their new gallery last weekend. It's yet another forum for these guys to bring the goodness.
Our 2nd Atlanta location opens tomorrow so cancel whatever plans you had and get there! It's located at 1061 Ponce DeLeon Avenue, NE. 10% of our first two days of business will be donated to Atlanta Pet Rescue and the first 300 customers get an ATL tote!
Before A-Ron had The Wreck Center, he had the back door at the aNYthing store. The Backdoor book herds together all the downtown cognoscenti, move-makers (and more than likely a few fakers) in one place for your ogling pleasure. It's limited to 500 copies so move fast.
One half of Frightened Rabbit (the Hutchison brothers) worked at our Glasgow store before the sun shone brightly on their band. Since then it's been limos and caviar (er...a record deal with FatCat, touring like madmen, and no sleep) for the boys. Here's the video for their 1st single off their new album, 'The Midnight Organ Fight'.
Issue 08 of Amelia’s Magazine is out now and it's poised to become our favorite life and culture mag for sure. You can't mistake the love put into this issue: it's enormous (like 300 pages), chock full of editorial goodness and about 60 of this issue's pages feature a visit to Russia.
I don't know a girl around me who doesn't have a pair of jazz shoes. That said, the creative director at Sergio Rossi must know this as well because they've created a new collection of surreal shoes, the stunner being the above pair of shiny red oxfords.
We are putting the finishing touches on Space 15 Twenty, our new L.A. venue. This is going to be way more than a store, and one of the unique features is this massive billboard in the heart of Hollywood where we plan on getting into a little trouble. Space 15 Twenty also features an outdoor performance space and cafe so watch this space!
What's all the buzz about? Legendary songwriter and artist Daniel Johnston, of course! He's at the Trocadero Theatre tonight, performing with local favorites the Capitol Years as a backing band. We're expecting nothing but awesomeness all around. Brave the elements (it's icy here!) for a too-rare encounter with actual genius. And...while you're at it, you should probably pick up one of those Hi, How Are You shirts. Kurt had one, you know...
Forest is a multi-purpose design studio run by Joel Speasmaker (who some of you might know as the publisher of The Drama - one of our fave, though sadly now-defunct, art mags). His latest curatorial project is the Forest Small Book Series. Book One is out now.
The Smarts and Culture Collective present Vision and Resistance, a benefit for the Kensington Welfare Rights Union that's jumping off tonite (Friday) from 7pm-12am at The Arts Garage (1533-35 Ridge Ave.). DJ Akshun (pictured) mans the decks and expect fire from MCs Therapist, Enki, Capital X, Godhead the General and Monte Smith. A good cause for sure and only $7 at the door.
Bringing in a new trend for Spring and taking a reprieve from gladiator sandals, Phillip Lim has paired up with Tatami by Birkenstock out of Germany to create some wonderful new footwear. Paired with Lim's own dresses or even just your favorite pair of jeans, the nine styles he's created will offer something for everyone. He's even gone so far as to create a few looks for men.
