Monday, September 29, 2014 Right Now: Nemesis Babe Shoots Paris Fashion Week
Friday, September 26, 2014 Chelsea Girls: Sama & Haya
With their willowy frames, nearly interchangeable features, and wildly curly locks, street style stars Sama and Haya Khadra cut a couple of captivating figures. The 21-year-old L.A.-based twins have been street style photographers’ favorite subjects since they first started attending fashion week with their mother at 14-years-old (snapping a shot of a pair of identical teen sisters sporting Chanel, YSL, and Jil Sander has got to be like hitting street style photography gold). These days, the Dubai-born sisters’ look—a mesmerizing mixture of whimsy and couture—has been toned down (just a notch) only because these days they’re sitting in on classes at University of Southern California (where they study film production) more often than fashion shows. We had a chat with them during our Chelsea Girls lookbook shoot to get their thoughts on life as a twin, growing up in Dubai, and what’s so great about their generation.
Wednesday, September 24, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: BOSCO
A few days ago, we caught up with BOSCO, the multi-talented artist who supplied our Shoe Cult ad with some serious sound. Her music video for “Names” just dropped, so we got the inside scoop on her creative process, what flew into her mouth while shooting the video, and why Lisa Frank will always reign supreme. — Chris Rellas
Tuesday, September 23, 2014 Right Now: Nemesis Babe Shoots Milan Fashion Week
High contrast colors and bold graphic prints ruled the streets of Milan during fashion week and, as usual, our girl Nemesis Babe was in the thick of the vibrant action. She sent us some of the crowd’s most decadent looks for us to feast our hungry eyes on.
Tuesday, September 16, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: Bleached
Sisters Jennifer and Jessie Clavin have been making music together since they were pre-teens, banging out their first notes on their dad’s acoustic guitar in their childhood San Fernando Valley home. The two spent high school playing in bands together, most notably Mika Miko, the most interestingly named Dead Banana Ladies, and later played in a few bands apart before they came together to form Bleached. The Clavins took their mutual love of the ’60s era girl-group sound and The Ramones and Misfits-style punk rock and put out a string of beloved 7-inches and music videos before finally releasing their first full length Ride Your Heart (which is now available, along with a ton of other records, on our site) last April.
Since then Bleached has toured the world, playing alongside the likes of Haim, Best Coast, and Black Lips. To celebrate the release of their newest 7-inch For The Feel, which drops today, we talked vinyl, aesthetics, and the importance of a good album cover.
