“Sinking Stone” by BRTHR for Dazed & Confused

This video directed by BRTHR for Dazed & Confused is sort of fitting for a Halloween Friday.  It’s a dark and twisty Bonnie & Clyde story.  There’s blood.  There’s a scary corn-rowed, jersey, grilled-out, gold chained twin brother villain duo chasing two attractive yet troubled teens through a dizzying tripped out nightmare set to a beautiful track by GEMS called “Sinking Stone.”  In other words, it’s F*cking FANTASTIC!!!

Best yet, it features our very own Krystall Schott, the ultimate model/author Kris Kidd, and Harmony Kourine’s claimed ATL Twins.  Click the image below to check out the video on including a little interview with the directors.

A vision named Aspen…

Aspen is one of those girls who strikes inspiration in the creatives of this industry: photographers, art directors, stylists, make up artists, hair stylists, you name it.  Every artists loves a good canvas, and Aspen is everything we ever dream of in a muse.  I’m happy to say that now we can all rest easy (or rather hit the ground running) because she’s here in LA and I’m chomping at the bit to shoot her for PhotogenicsMAG: The Art Book Issue Vol. 2

Without further ado…The vision for which the title of this post gets its name.  ASPEN.

We’re loving the eye-catchingly colorful latest from Teeth Mag featuring our lovely Jade McSorley.  Sometimes we need a little refresh and reboot before all the dark and moody ensues and we’re neck deep in sweater piles (make no mistake though…we LOVE said sweater piles) but it’s always nice to see a little color now and again.  Take it in….
