fashion week…SKINGRAFT SS ’13

     Our relationship with Skingraft has always been one of friendship and admiration.  We’ve been  supporting the LA based brand for many years now because they represent the promise of an unbelievable future for LA fashion and an elevated market that holds its own with regard to high design.

     This season, Skingraft presented a Spring Summer ’13 collection poolside at the Mondrian Hotel where Torian, Zinta, Dani, Nickayla, Breanna, Walker, and Simba stared motionless into the crowd of  spectators and media who were no doubt drooling over the structured, sports-inspired designs.   It was stoic, statuesque, mesmerizing…a dark display of eye candy for the Mad Max-obsessed.   Not to mention, killer hair+make up by Smashbox Cosmetics and Black Banditz.

Here’s a backstage look at the makings of a great presentation.  -M-

tensegrity…featuring ALLA KOSTROMICHOVA

Just saw this fashion video recently of our girl Alla Kostromichova, and I thought, “WOW. I f’ing love this.  Super weird.  Maybe a little too weird, but beautiful and right up our alley.”
What can I say?  We’re PHOTOGENICS and that’s how we roll.

We often find friendships in the most unlikely places.  One day, when you least expect it, she’ll hit you like a ton of bricks, and you’ll never want to live a day without her.  Sisters are all made of star stuff.  So, hold onto her, whoever she may be.

Dedicated to my BFF. Safe travels across the globe, my friend.

The world is not ready for your beauty.

YES!!! Sarah Jordan in the new Urban Outfitters Denim 2012 video.  Seriously, I’m shaking in my summer wedges at the thought of the kind of debauchery I face this weekend in SF with my closest slash craziest friends, the kind of debauchery we only encounter in our twenties when we’re expected to be all responsible and such. Watching this just makes me yearn for the care free good old years of harmless high school mayhem.  So, some words of wisdom for all you young bucks:

“ENJOY YOUR YOUTH!!” and live this video.

Last night at Drai’s Hollywood could have been a blur, as these things usually are, but given my new position here I’ve decided that vigilance and observation are two things I must perfect as part of my job.  So, instead of letting the good times roll (well, not entirely) I made sure to document the event through my eyes and share it for what it was: a cluster fuck of maddeningly stylish heavy-hitters gathered to celebrate three brands that play a big role in giving LA the legitimacy it’s so seldom granted in the fashion world.

 To Roark, Generic Surplus, and Fremont:

Thank you! Shit’s legit, for real. You make us proud.
