The line: Hawks by Geren Ford and GF by Geren Ford
One of the raddest art couples out there has to be Ed and Deanna Templeton. They met when they were just teenagers (he was 15, she was 18), and have been snapping together ever since. Deanna's new show for her Scratch Your Name On My Arm exhibit, for which she photographed a series of young people letting their bodies be branded by their favorite idols and companies, is opening in L.A.'s Paul Kopeikin Gallery tomorrow night from 6-8pm.
After years of working for Dior and as head designer at H&M, Berlin-based designer Clarissa Labin has finally launched her own line of jersey-wear and knits. With a yellow tunic of pillowy folds and a dress intertwined with a Rapunzel-like braid, this is one line where the devil is definitely in the details.
Here's hoping your weekend is this much fun. Read the exclusive Local Natives' tour blog here.
Street Culture Mash is a blog that was started by Mike Han (top photo) to try and promote street art and Detroit culture with the goal of making street art respectable and sustainable in today's culture. This logical outlook to positive promotion has definitely caught the eye of the city's youth. Mike is also the co-publisher for I Am Young Detroit, which is another blog with the purpose of promoting the Detroit art, music and fashion scene, and through it, Mike was a guest writer for TIME magazine's website.
Also, follow Han on the Detroit Fixed Gear Facebook HERE and he will keep you posted on all of the noteworthy bike events in the D! -Aren
Moni Haworth is easily my favorite photographer and we also tend to share a brain. When I saw these great photos she took of Sky Ferreira for EXIT Magazine, there was no mistaking it was Moni behind the lens capturing a real girl in all her beauty. X - Jen
"We Are Ugly But We Have the Music" is the title of the latest jewelry collection by Stolen Girlfriends Club. If you've ever seen this crew you'll know that the first bit's a lie, but the second bit might be true– if the music is metal. - Nadia
Instead of the plastic fangs-white powder-black lipstick combo this Halloween, we're thinking some of the elaborate looks from China Fashion Week's EON make-up styling awards might be in order. (Via Zimbio)

G/IRL: Girls in Real Life is a new exhibit showcasing the photography of talented women using Tumblr, Flickr and other social media sites to promote their work.

We at Urban Outfitters love bikes. Mountain bikes, racing bikes, cruiser bikes, tandem bikes...we should probably just start a gang. Instead, we're sponsoring The Philadelphia Bike Expo this weekend, October 30 & 31, at the 23rd Street Armory in downtown Philly.
Carolina Fontoura Alzaga combines her love of Victorian interiors and bike culture by making chandeliers entirely out of recycled bike parts, including gears, chains and brake pedals.
We love music festivals, but between the mud, ticket prices and Port-o-Potty lines...sometimes we can't remember why. Enter Sezio's Four Day Weekend, an "anti-festival" bringing eight west coast bands together for four nights of performances in an intimate, living room setting. This year's event will kick off November 4 at Sushi Art in San Diego's East village, with a line-up featuring The Tree Rings, Dominant Legs, The Dodos and Avi Buffalo. Additional cool points are awarded for the ticket price of $10-$15! (Via Holiday Matinee)

This weekend's Hello Sailor Vintage Fair at Melbourne's Grace Darling is going to be bigger than Halloween! Kinda. Ok, not really. But with heaps of vintage summer-wear, home-wear and cheap (price, not quality) winter coats, it could come close. Runs on Saturday, Oct 30 and Sunday, Oct 31 from 12pm-6pm. - Nadia
Where better to host a Halloween weekend music festival than the land of voodoo itself, New Orleans? 2010's Voodoo Experience is a massive three-day festival that will showcase over 100 acts. Sure bets for a good time: headliners like Muse, Ozzy, MGMT, Interpol and Deadmau5 and high-quality openers like Florence and the Machine and Die Antwoord.
Ok, maybe Ottawa Fashion Week is more like a weekend, but you can still expect beautiful Spring/Summer 2011 collections from Nixxi, LABEL, Adrian Wu and more at the National Gallery of Canada this weekend, October 29-31.
Our resident hair-stylist and make-up artist Russell Oden is back with more of his new favorites he's picked up from this last week of making models camera-ready in the photo studio.
