Friday, March 28, 2014 Artsy Fartsy: Luca Mainini
It’s impossible not to be mesmerized by Luca Mainini’s artwork. One look at his website, and you’ll understand why some of the biggest fashion industry players (think: Anna Dello Russo, Givenchy, and Moschino) have commissioned him to create one-of-kind collages. We just had to get a piece of the action (literally), so we asked him to create some hypnotic GIFs featuring our Nasty Gal Collection Spring 2014 and, of course, get to know the man behind the killer artwork.
Wednesday, March 26, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: Krewella
Whether you’ve realized it or not, you’ve heard of Krewella. Turn on any top 40 radio station, and there’s a (very, very) large chance you’ll hear their impossible-to-forget single “Alive” from their debut album Get Wet. The L.A-via-Chicago EDM trio features singer/songwriter sisters Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf and DJ/producer Kris “Rain Man” Trindl. Not only did their first record release reach number 8 on the U.S. Billboard charts, but they’re also headlining Ultra Music Festival, and Lollapalooza this summer. Whew! So, we caught up with the girls right here in L.A. to talk all-things festival, and let them take some Nasty Gal Collection Spring 2014 pieces for a spin.

Monday, March 24, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: Jasmine Solano
In case you were wondering, yes, you can make a living as a DJ. See: Jasmine Solano. This Brooklyn girl/MTV Iggy host started spinning on the radio at just 17, and her tireless work ethic has landed her gigs all over the world. (She’ll be at Glastonbury in June!) So, we hit her up to find out the secret to her success and create a killer playlist just for us. (We hope you have good headphones.)

Friday, March 21, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: Soko
We can’t stop thinking about the killer Nasty Gal x Galore Mag bash from a couple weeks back—mostly because some of our favorite female musicians made an appearance (like Deap Vally and Ivy Levan!). But, we didn’t get a chance to talk to our DJ-of-the-night Soko because, well, she was a little busy. So, we caught up with the singer/actress/all-around babetron afterward to chat about her ’80s-inspired setlist, her never-ending “teen crisis”, and how she (successfully!) manages to live her entire life out of suitcase. Spoiler alert: She’s awesome.

Wednesday, March 19, 2014 Globetrotter: Tokyo Shop Girls
As our Tokyo adventures continue, we stop by two of the most influential clothing stores in Japan—Faline and Candy—and get to know the killer women behind them. Take a look inside some of the best hidden gems (literally) but, warning, you might want to book a flight to Japan ASAP.
