Limedrop SS 11


Limedrop's Spring/Summer 2011 collection is titled "Far From Home," and with suitcase-ready silk crop tops and volcano-print blazers, it's probably more prepared for vacation than you are.

Marc Hundley

Marc Hundley's work is laced with nostalgia and optimism. The former informs his creative process, which often involves incorporating text, books, music and found objects to realize a work. The latter radiates through his paintings, posters and t-shirts. On Thursday March 3 the New York-based artist opens his first Australian show at Darren Knight Gallery, featuring over 10 years of work and the launch of his first book, Weaverbird & Other Words, in partnership with Rainoff. - Nadia

Bjorg



Bjorg's 2011 look book is more National Geographic than fashion catalog, but we mean that in best way possible– it's only too appropriate considering their jewelry encases horse hair, beetles and butterfly wings.  

Me and Arrow


We distinctly remember getting a clue saying that Carmen Sandiego's thieves were hanging out in Hawaii– probably trying to find her one of these dead-stock vintage tropical print totes from Me and Arrow.

Kat Von D's First RTW Collection




Kat Von D can now add fashion designer to her long list of accomplishments with her very first RTW collection. I don't think I've seen anyone make a two piece suit look hotter! X - Jen

UNIF




As much as we love the clothes in UNIF's latest lookbook, what we really want to know is, um, can we ride around in that van?

Joey Grana of Scout L.A. Vintage

This Sunday's Space 15 Twenty weekly courtyard flea market is hosted by Joey Grana, owner of L.A. boutique Scout.  Joey stocks big name designers alongside a treasure trove of vintage finds and his own eponymous collection of paper-thin t-shirts and washed silk jackets, garnering a following that includes everyone from Erin Wasson to a guy called Pink Fluffy.


At what point do you consider yourself successful?
Maybe when I grow up.

Who is your most memorable customer?
We had this customer we called Pink Fluffy.  He was just this regular-looking dude, except he would buy (and wear) girls' ruffled butt panties– sometimes with pink crystal clip-on earrings.

How has your store evolved since its inception?
Lots of things have changed, but people always like my vintage selection so I keep doing that.

If you could go shopping anytime in history, what would you stock up on?
I. Magnin in the '80s.


What kind of person wears your in-house brand?
Cassie and Harley.

What's your most in-demand vintage era?
I'm going for early 2000 these days.

How does one build personal style?
By avoiding fashion magazines.

If you had a yacht, what would you name it?
The S.S. Beans, after my cat.

What's your favorite saying?
If I ever bore you, it will be with a knife.

Last June, Cheap Monday put 30 pairs of jeans in three different outside locations—the beach, the woods, and the roof of their office—and they've been 'worn by the weather' ever since.

Hixsept



Hixsept is the clothing line of French graffiti writers Hëx and Hept, and it's easy to see the tagging influence in their latest collection, Problème et Crépuscule. We especially like the dusty color palette.
