Designer Radar: Sandy Liang

MTM1MTg4NTM0NzU4ODEyMjkx

New York based designer Sandy Liang has one of those wavelengths that I would love to surf. Her designs are inspired by the street and skate culture of NYC but with the ease and nonchalance of the 90s throughout. The denim plays on frayed edges and deconstruction while her coats are full of shearling trims paired…

Kaibosh Goes Metal

Nickolas

Norwegian eyewear label Kaibosh is one of my current faves in terms of frames. They have really mastered the art of balancing a minimal aesthetic with rock and roll. The new range aptly titled Metallicum morphs their already classic designs with a thin rim to add the perfect mix of an organic style to compliment your look. I’ve…

This brings me to Hunter Gatherer Jewelry from Chicago. A line of nature inspired adornments designed by Laura Prieto-Velasco gives the ethereal, sublime, and gothy feeling…

Designer Radar: DM/OR

USredo_1000

I love discovering new lines. Especially ones that are from my own backyard, Los Angeles. Cali often gets a bad rap of being the “afterthought” when talking about American fashion.

It seems that even in all corners of the world the way of the 90s is certainly back. This line effortlessly mixes leathers, knits, and…
