Model Files: Valters Medenis



While I’m in the midst of traveling back and forth on trains and the public transport of New York there is never not a time where I find a new model muse.  Enter Valters Medenis, born in Latvia and scouted playing basketball in Brighton Beach who has now become one of the new faces in the industry.

Exclusive: I’m with the Band by Daria Kobayashi-Ritch

_MG_8185-EditRemember the days of the 60s when every girl hanging with bands was this free-spirited bohemian goddess. That’s exactly what this editorial channels. It may not be the usual 90s style that you’re used to but this style did eventually have some elements to it that stuck around for the 90s era. Shot by Daria Kobayashi-Ritch in a loft somewhere in Hollywood, we are transported back to that world 50 years later.

Out of Uniform by Mario Sorrenti for W Magazine

military-jackets-mario-sorrenti-1It’s not that often that I find an editorial in a high fashion magazine that really strikes my core and really cuts down to the bone. So, when I came across this new story in April’s issue of W Magazine by Mario Sorrenti I stared at it for a good 20 minutes. Something this good just had to be shared.

Inspiration: Noise

tumblr_ne0i02mBs51rf08l1o1_1280Noise comes in many forms. Whether it’s grain on film or actual noise from sound it comes in many forms. Just the word that inspired this visual crop this week.

Exclusive: Jess by We Are Alive Agency

IMG_4212This latest shoot from We Are Alive Agency captures the “fashiongrunge” spirit for the changing seasons. In an apartment we follow Jess as she wanders around the flat. We also get a glimpse of who she is by the books, music, and other surroundings.

Style Crush: Jemima Kirke


Most people know artist & actress Jemima Kirke from the show “Girls” but over the last few months I’ve been totally crushing on everything about her. She’s an incredible artist and all around muse. Much like her character Jessa in the show she has a easy bohemian style which borders on taking some cues from the 90s fashion style. Just this week she spoke out about womens reproductive rights and shows no fear when speaking her mind. Just the kind of figure we need right now, showing multi dimensional layers all while keeping her own style intact through her many roles.
