Exclusive: Lose Yourself by Anastasia Solodovnikova

5It amazes me how this site really reaches all corners of the world. So when I received this editorial in my inbox from Russia, I fell in love. It’s so great to see the different interpretation of the grunge aesthetic. This series by Anastasia Solodovnikova is another reason why I love the visual arts.

Inspiration: Killing It.

Been feeling super optimistic lately. Almost in a “killing it” type of mood. Things are looking up for 2015. In keeping with that mood, the spirit of youth and the neo-grunge attitude inspired this latest crop of visual information.

Stay Broke Shoot Film : Opening Ceremony Men’s Fall 2015

opening-ceremony-mens03Ok, so this is a bit of a departure form your regularly scheduled programming, but I just had to comment about the menswear collection from Opening Ceremony for Fall 2015. Over the past two years I’ve re-discovered my love for film photography. This includes creating an online community for it.

The designers of OC are great friends with photographer/director Spike Jonze and have since created a capsule in their line featuring some of his projects, outtakes, and contact sheets on their clothing. Noteable would be photos of Immediately this drew my eye. Hello, that contact sheet 3/4 length jacket! Another prominent design is the manipulation of the vintage Kodak logo. From an artistic standpoint and the blending of two mediums, color me impressed. Looks like I’ll be trying to get my hands on more menswear the next Fall season.

Style File: Jemina Pearl

tumblr_lt99t1rPcu1qh4bmwo1_500I’m so obsessed with girl fronted bands. Much like the unicorn, they are reveled as such forces of nature especially in such a male dominated world. Which brings me to Jemina Pearl, formerly of the garage punk band Be Your Own Pet out of Nashville. They broke up a few years ago and its one band that I regret not seeing before they split. For a brief while she played in Ultras S/C which I’m also a fan of, but basically she has the sickest style. Now she’s working on some solo projects but for now lets take some visual and sound inspo from this “pearl” of garage style wisdom.

Style Crush: Matthew Gray Gubler

tumblr_static_style-hot-tea-tuesday-matthew-gray-gubler2

Aside from the usual grungy dudes that occupy space my subconscious, I do live for an awkward nerdy type guy. Case and point: Matthew Gray Gubler of the tv show Criminal Minds.  His first love is film making and since has directed seven episodes of Criminal Minds. Upon deeper exploration I discovered that he was also a model with DNA and has done some print modeling and runway work, and is a pretty incredible artist.  Looking at his online personality, he seems to be the goofiest and probably one of the few actors who doesn’t take themselves too seriously. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Inspiration: Wynter

tumblr_m4iglhf4mr1qb7rhko1_1280In keeping with the damp cold rain that is currently falling through clouds, I thought about the aspects of winter. When we hibernate and fall deep into our head and do excessive planning, action and interior projects. Now that I’m back on the East Coast I realize that the diverse weather was definitely something I took for granted in my youth. I now take comfort in the freezing rain soaked streets and my eyes peering up over my thick scarf biting the cold air from my face.

Model File : Lucan Gillespie

untitled-article-1409854312-body-image-1409854637Behind the long blonde waves and the innocent eyes, is London based model Lucan Gillespie. She’s represented by Select Models and has been spotted in a few editorials both in Europe and the US.  I’m partial to the capturing of youth and in a natural setting. Her big break this past year was being featured in the J.W. Anderson campaign, hopefully we will see more of her this upcoming year.
