Fabliha and Tasfia Reza are the 20-year-old Australian twins behind Inside In, Inside Out. Science students by day, the twins use their blog as an in-your-face creative outlet. Their look is experimental, combining mixed prints with bold color. Fabliha describes her style as “whimsical and quirky” while she says her sister’s style is “edgier, with cleaner lines and more monochromatic and neutral” pieces. Their blog is about more than just style, though. They love cooking and traveling (they’ve recently been to Spain, France, and Turkey, amongst other places) too, and integrate it all into their dizzingly colorful (in a good way) blog.
From weekend shopping trips to joint hair appointments, we do pretty much everything as a twosome. So when Stef set off for six months of studying French and croissant eating in Paris, we wanted a way to continue sharing our lives from across the globe. Enter How Two Live, a blog where we began documenting our daily adventures, café finds, and latest wardrobe additions. 11 months later, and our online diary has led to a year of international fashion weeks, collaborations with some killer designers, and a whole lot of matching outfits.
Take a virtual stroll (er, scroll) through the wonderfully warped mind of Jon Burgerman, who’s offering up his playful interpretation of the selfie-sharing, interweb-surfing phenom that is the modern girl in the world. The Brit-born/NYC-based artist has us yearning to plaster our walls with his color-injected “Drawings of Girls I’ve seen on Tumblr“, a web-based project which is updated regularly (where else?) on Tumblr. With chromatic scribblings of everything from anonymous blogger babes to iconic fashion photography like Naomi Campbell as Cat Woman in Vogue Russia, it’s safe to say we’ve just found our new online obsession. Here, the Brooklyn dude dishes on his inspiration, the intrigue of going against generic beauty ideals and, duh, why gurlz rule.
Just the thought of fruity popsicle hues has us craving summer in a big way, so naturally our closets have been overflowing with chromatics lately. Colorblocking has saturated the runway and streets from ’60s minis to ’80s power suits, leaving us free to draw from decades’ worth of inspo to create our own technicolor combinations. So whether you mix it up with loud prints or rock every shade of the rainbow at once, it’s time to give into your color crush.
Currently burning retinas and blowing minds at OHWOW Gallery, “Wonderful Land” is a suite of analog photographs that capture the myth of the American landscape through a saturated lens. David Benjamin Sherry adopted the techniques of legendary 20th century photographers such as Ansel Adams and Imogen Cunningham as he traversed the Wild West with a handmade, wooden camera. The scale and composition of the landmasses conjure 60s earth works, while the brilliant monochromatic hues lend a contemporary, pop sensibility. Ready to go on a color trip?
