Thursday, August 21, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: Catching Up With Haim Pre-FYF and Post-”My Song 5″
Remember when The Spice Girls first spiced up our lives with their British flag shift dresses and sky-high platforms, and you and your entire group of BFFAEAE each had to self-describe as a Sporty, Posh, Ginger, Scary, or Baby? (Fun fact: I was Sporty). Well, with Haim, the L.A. born-and-bred sister shredders made up of big sis Este, middle sis Danielle, and lil’ sis Alana, it’s similar, except there are less of them, and you’d be stoked-as-hell to be any one of the members (Admit it: nobody actually wanted to identify as Scary in the former situation).
Just a few hours after the drop of their new video for “My Song 5″ off of their debut album Days Are Gone, I steal a quick phone call with keyboardist Alana (who, at the tender age of 22, is known as “Baby Haim”) and we chat about the quirky video concept, which features cameos by the likes of A$AP Ferg (who raps on the original track and is apparently “literally the nicest dude ever”), Grimes, SNL‘s Vanessa Bayer, and Ke$ha. – Jane Helpern

Tuesday, August 19, 2014 Role Model: Anais Pouliot
Anais Pouliot is well seasoned in the way of campaigns. From Louis Vuitton to Emporio Armani, to Sonia Rykiel and Carven, everyone wants Anais to rep their duds—including us. We couldn’t think of anyone more perfect for our denim campaign than the sultry French Canadian, who was sure to bring her signature spirit and versatility (and who was totally game to jump in a kiddie pool in bell bottoms) to our L.A. shoot. Read on to learn a little more about one of our favorite new faces.
