    Blood Is The New Black

    With the Spring launch of their new collection, Blood Is The New Black are back with some seriously epic artists. Cali Dewitt and Jesse Spears are new to the BITNB roster and their sweetly innocent designs will become fast favorites of everyone who views them. The 'Hope In A Jar' tee from Cali is seriously the best.
  • Owens Bros. for Zoo York

    Owens Bros. for Zoo York

    We've posted Zoo York artist series decks before but when they're this stunning how can we not? According to Matt and Mark Owens, their "Urbane Jungle" series represents "the socio-cultural realms of Literature, Architecture, The Arts, Transit, Food and Tourism". Shred-ready and heady.
  • Looptopia In-Store

    Looptopia In-Store

    Looptopia, Chicago's all night arts and culture jump-off, is invading our 20 State St. store this Friday nite. The event runs 7pm to midnite but you can catch Company of Thieves (that's them pictured above) at 7:30 and Raise High the Roof Beam at 8:30. Fix up, look sharp!
  • Money Folder

    Money Folder

    We're getting a distinct Juelz Santana vibe off of this Yen fold up.
  • Samantha Hahn

    Samantha Hahn

    We like the washed out, sunset-y palette Samantha Hahn uses in her illustrations. We also like the idea of flying shoes quite a bit so she's scored twice with us.
  • Karen Walker Jewelry

    Karen Walker Jewelry

    So you've seen her clothes and sunglasses, but have you checked out the amazing jewelry that Karen Walker has been turning out? Photographed with some of best presentation I've ever seen, every one of her pieces is incredibly designed and no detail is spared.
  • Travel Tray

    Tré Cool

    We're not the types to drop the coin or get on a wait list for one of Hermès' Birkin bags. But we would spring for simple, functional accessories like their roll-able felt travel tray. (Via Journal-Inc.)

    Outdoor Ed

    The Spring/Summer weather is finally being felt by New Yorkers. That's why we decided to take a trip out to Fort Tilden, a former United States Army Installation in the New York City borough of Queens. It is pretty amazing out there, seeing that military installations on the site date back to the War of 1812. Abandoned buses, houses, and warehouses remain on the grounds, sitting right next to baseball fields and the beach. If you are in NY this Summer, it's definitely worth the subway ride out, just to be able to explore and make it your new Summer jump off! (Via Spacey Tracy.)

  • Matt & Nat

    Matt & Nat

    Loving these vegan-friendly bags from Matt & Nat. With a barrage of colors and styles, the nylon pink and faux worn-in leather has to be my favorite. I also love the placement of the zipper. Could this be the new It Bag?
  • Slipoffs

    Slipoffs

    We've seen our fair share of sneaker customizations, but Shauna Mae at Slipoffs does it up right (bonus points for nerding out with the Darth/Yoda combo).
  • Memphis Taproom

    Memphis Taproom

    A co-worker here at UO Blog HQ let me know that the Memphis Taproom, which opened this past Tuesday in lovely Port Richhmond, served up some mighty fine comestibles. And for those of you readers who are of age, their libations ain't too shabby either.
  • NEWWORK

    NEWWORK

    Issue no. 1 of NEWWORK -a large-format biannual- is out and features contributions solely from New Yorkers. And while the content seems to skew a little brainy (you guys are brainy, right?), they haven't forgotten their art-for-the-masses roots. All the pages are separable; they can be put up on the wall as art pieces. Nice. (Via The Style Press.)
  • Kool G Rap - Road To The Riches

    "You can be a rapper....but you can't be a gangsta...you don't wanna be a gangsta." More late 80s gold.
  • Sebastien Tellier - Divine

    Oh, to be Sebastien Tellier.
  • Iggy & Lou Lou

    Iggy & Lou Lou

    Check out Iggy & Lou Lou if you're into killer jewelry. My favorite has to be their 'I Will Eat You Alive' collection which features bites taken out of their fine porcelain necklaces and attacking bears that have been dipped in gold.
  • Zooey and Erin (and Ellen!)

    If we admit our weakness for Zooey Deschanel, (we used her music in our latest video remember?) we'll also mention that we're softies for Erin Featherston and Ellen Von Unwerth as well. This is Erin's latest fashion video, in all it's ragamuffin, pop-influenced glory, directed by Ellen and starring the amazing Zooey.
  • Lab Partners

    Lab Partners

    Ryan and Sarah from Lab Partners got in touch to let us know about their sweet letterpress and gocco work. The only thing missing from this print that we can detect is a Mission burrito. Otherwise, it's pure SF bliss.
