Wednesday, November 6, 2013 Artsy Fartsy: Meet The Cult: Olivia Bee
Apparently it is possible to be downright adorable and totally badass at the exact same time—just look at our latest NYC Shoe Cult disciple Olivia Bee. At 19, the Portland-born photographer has already shot campaigns for Hermes, Nike, and Converse, and her work has appeared in the New York Times, Vice, and Numero, just to name a few. Olivia has been snapping photographs since she was 11, so we asked her to pick out her five favorite shots so far and share them with us right here on the blog!

If you peeped our 15-second Shoe Cult teaser, you got just a tiny peek into the mind of web designer/illustrator/motion graphics artist/jack-of-all-internet-trades Tara Sinn. The NYC-based artist (known for her trippy, super-saturated artwork) chatted with us about her obsession with the internet, her favorite GIF of the moment, and all the awesome projects she’s working on next.
Wednesday, October 30, 2013 Artsy Fartsy: Director Alexa Karolinski
If you’re like us, you’ve watched the Shoe Cult teaser at least 100 times by now. The genius behind those 15 seconds of awesomeness is director Alexa Karolinski—an L.A.-based filmmaker who has mastered everything from high fashion films to full-length documentaries. We cannot get enough of her killer aesthetic, so we decided to hit her up and find out what really makes her tick.
Friday, October 25, 2013 Artsy Fartsy: Meet The Cult: Alice Lancaster
There’s something so effortlessly awesome about our latest Shoe Cult Ambassador Alice Lancaster. She’s equal parts funny as she is talented, and you may have seen her art plastered on (some highly debated) American Apparel T-shirts as of late. She took us on a tour of her studio space in Bushwick, Brooklyn so we could get an up close and personal look at her NYC life—and her amazing cat.
Monday, October 14, 2013 Artsy Fartsy: Introducing: ‘Junk’ Magazine
Nothing makes us more giddy than the arrival of a new fashion mag—especially when it’s created by two awesome ladies with a killer aesthetic. When Aussie Imogene Barron and Kiwi Lucy Rose relocated to L.A., they launched Junk to “showcase the diverse talent that this inspiring city produces.” Long story short: they did a dang good job. One flip through the mag, and you’re flooded with anything-but-ordinary photo spreads and on-point musings from contributors like Ed Templeton, Gusmano Cesaretti, and Nabil Elderkin, just to name a few. The best part? As of today, you can officially swipe up the magazine for yourself. Get a peek of what’s inside below!
