Tuesday, March 18, 2014 Globetrotter: Rosa’s Japan Diary

Layout-Build_Japan_1

In case you haven’t noticed, we’ve been mega obsessed with Tokyo as of late—and you can thank our Senior Content Editor Rosa Lieberberg for that. She headed to Japan (for the first time ever!) and met up with The Model Burnbook’s Cailin Hill and IO Echo’s Ioanna Gika in the heart of Tokyo. Luckily, she decided to share her super kawaii adventures with us and spill on all the best places to visit. Upon arrival, Rosa holed up at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, which had incredible views of the city—“I have a thing with views. It’s so peaceful, and it puts everything in perspective”—and it also happened to be where they filmed Lost In Translation. “I did think I should have a moment in sheer underwear like Scarlett, but then again, I’m not Scarlett so I didn’t do it.” She did, however, manage to bust out her For Love & Lemons body chain for the first time despite the freezing temperatures. “If I were to actually move to Tokyo, I would probably transform into a manga warrior, and this body chain was one step toward that.”

Friday, March 14, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: Deap Vally

deap-vally-1

There’s really only one word to describe Lindsey Troy and Julie Edwards of Deap Vally: badass. You wouldn’t think this noisey rock ‘n’ roll duo met in a Silver Lake needlework class just a few years ago–they’ve already played every major music festival (see: Glastonbury, Bonnaroo, and Leeds) and opened for Muse. Before these Cali girls headed back on the road, they get decked out in Nasty Gal at their rehearsal space in LA and gave us the low-down on what really happens at all those summer festivals.

Wednesday, March 12, 2014 Artsy Fartsy: Illustrator Seitaro Ito

foxy-nasty-gal

Ever since we visited Japan, we’ve been obsessed with all things Tokyo. Thanks to some friends we met along the way (and serious internet stalking), we discovered illustrator Seitaro Ito—who created the iconic ’60s bombshell character Foxy—and knew we had to find out more about him. As it turns out, he’s BFFs with our go-to kawaii artist Esther Kim! The two met through mutual friends, and Seitaro said, “I was so happy when she said she liked my drawings because I also adore and respect her.” So, we thought we’d do the cutest thing possible: let them interview each other. Check out Esther’s Q&A with Seitaro below—and peep his killer Nasty Gal illustrations along the way.

Monday, March 10, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: Ivy Levan

ivy

Ivy Levan describes her look as “ditzy housewife meets murderous working girl,” and we couldn’t say it better ourselves. The Arkansas-born singer relocated to L.A. 11 years ago and has made a name for herself with punky film noir music videos and a super sultry Disney villain aesthetic. (She even walked in The Blonds’ S/S 2014 New York Fashion Week show last year.) We were lucky enough to chat up Ivy at our Nasty Gal x Galore Mag party to hear more about her morgue-inspired ensembles, where she shops in L.A., and her undying (heh) love for industrial goth.

Friday, March 7, 2014 Artsy Fartsy: Galore Mag

galore-mag

If you live in New York City, you’ve heard about Galore. The ’90s-inspired quarterly mag, launched in 2012 by Prince Chenoa and Jacob Dekat, perfectly mixes powerful women and sex appeal for a downtown-girl-meets-vixen-bombshell visual aesthetic that stands out amongst the typical newsstand crowd. But Galore isn’t just a magazine–it’s a media company that hosts events, produces short films and creates daily content for their site. In celebration of our killer Nasty Gal x Galore party last night, we thought it would be the perfect time to hit up these EICs and hear more about our favorite mag of the moment.
