At some point in my life I guess I’m going to get tired of Hedi Slimane, references to The Night Porter, and Jana-K-be-still-my-heart glaring and probably topless and dressed up in Balenciaga and girlified-menswear-hey-guys-androgyny-is-so-in-right-now, but today is apparently not that day. More after the jump. NSFW. Duh.
mandy coon fw2011
Finally finishing up all things post-NYFW! More of my reviews at Oakazine…. Odyn Vovk Kaelen Siki Im And, at long last, images from the Mandy Coon presentation — more after the jump.
a love letter to planned parenthood
For the previously uninformed! Planned Parenthood is currently threatened with the loss of the $75 million they recieve each year in Federal funding. (For perspective, we will also note that military marching bands recieve $500 million a year.) While it is unlikely to make it through the Senate and the chances of PP losing all funding and going under forever are slim, it’s still infinitely...

NYFW PICSPAM ROUND 3! Also known as the day I was in the same room as Jenny Shimizu and Anna Wintour WHAT More after the jump.
backstage at kaelen fw2011
FASHION WEEK PICSPAM CONTINUES I’LL BE BACK TO FEIGNING ERUDITE AND POSTING LONG-WINDED RANTS SOON ENOUGH Y’ALL, FEAR NOT These from backstage at the Kaelen presentation in a custom-built space at Drive In Studios, which I was lucky enough to help out with a bit (see: El Day Job) — amazed at how well everything came together and thought the collection was gorgeous, and...
We interrupt our normally scheduled programming to bring you yet another HEY GUYS DID YOU KNOW IT’S FASHION WEEK POST, which is, in this case, this veritable triptych of absurdity. Observe: post steal-Natasha’s-lipstick-in-the-bathroom-and-wander-around-in-a-pack-together-trying-not-to-talk-about-“having-a-blog”-fest, I am unable to break picture-face, Hilary has a...
NYFW FW/11: complex geometries
CG really stepped it up a notch from the mutating-tshirts-of-postapocalyptic-gothy-glory that I’d come to know them as with a PRETTY MUCH TOTALLY AWESOME EPIC presentation (at a sketchy west-side strip club, nonetheless.) By now we all know that pretty much any collection that can be described as “scifi” or “90s” is going to win my heart, and this was, pretty...
I'M AT THE FASHION PARTY I'M WEARING FASHION PANTS
Das Racist - Fashion Party (w/Chairlift) This is like sooooo last season but I figure any song that drops Balenciaga, Michel Foucault, sample sales, hummus, interns, the Taliban, mountain men, Gucci visors from the dollar store, mispronunciations of “Lanvin,” and Facehunter is probably still worth your time a few months late. JUST IN CASE YOU DIDN’T REALISE IT WAS NYFW...
kourtney roy - soup magazine
What is it lately with my obsession with photographers who make creepy doll-like parodies of stereotypical feminine roles, images, or clothing? I can’t get enough of this ed from Soup Mag by photographer Kourtney Roy. (Thanks for tuning me in to it, Alexa!) I’m sure I read too much into these or see a depth that wasn’t intended, and it’s not as if this sort of thing...
It’s like #GPOYW, except it’s a Monday, and it’s mostly recent photos of a handful of my excessively cool/well-dressed friends from the past months. Soon to be followed by the, uh, six rolls of film I’ve forgotten to get developed since the summer. Hot damn! pretty much been wearing this constantly since I posted it, oops
ICON: ALISON MOSSHART
The Kills - Satellite by DominoRecordCo The fact that The Kills are coming out with a new album and that the first single is officially on the internets means that I get to resume talking about the infinite coolness and superior style of Alison Mosshart again without sounding, like, sooo 2008, right? I mean, SERIOUSLY though. Can you find me another broad who looks this cool? No. I...
1990's Arena Homme editorials
Half-bleached undercut, layered studded bracelets, excessive hardware jewelry, man-skirts (or are those just uber-wide pants?), leather jackets, teen angst, chipped black nail polish… had you any doubt at all that the 90’s are back full force and that now, AT LONG LAST, I get to joyfully re-live all the glorious sartorial errors of junior high school minus the whole social pariah...
WWD | Bridget Foley's Diary: The Weighting Blame →
I read the above-linked charming little mess in yesterday’s WWD and for hours afterwards wasn’t quite able to place what it was about it that grated my nerves so much. My internet was all riled up about it too — my Google reader and Twitter all collectively eyerolled/facepalmed/groaned, but overall, it’s really just another mildly irritating but easily ignored...
