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.

Exclusive: Maya by Laura Kaczmarek

Maya-Laura-Kaczmarek-002This series comes to us from Laura Kaczmarek in Germany. Here are a few words about the project:

“I’m extremely inspired by different locations I find from time to time. I love urban, run-down architecture and landscapes and always have an eye on whats happening on the streets. Shot in West Germany on a derelict tennis court. ”

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.

Exclusive: Crazy Room by Emanuele Ferrari

 

emanuele-ferrari-silvia-bertocchi-16You can always count on Milan based photographer Emanuele Ferrari to ride the line between sex and indie fashion photography. His latest series for the site, “crazy room” is modeled by Silvia Bertocchi with such a raw edge. Part girl next door and vixen she is the story and we’re just merely voyeurs.

Wishing on a Star : My Current Wishlist

It’s been so long since I’ve done a proper shopping post.  I’m always getting questions on where to buy clothing and suggestions on what I’m loving at the moment. This is right in time for the holidays so whether or not you still have some last minute buying or you want to simply know what my current wishlist is then voila!

swatch_watchesIt’s no secret that I’m pretty obsessed with Swatch watches. So, when I saw the new Fall collection, these were my favorites. The Circle in a Circle (left) for obvious reasons, it reminds me of days in the 90s when I would watch after school programs in my neon biker shorts and color with day-glo pens. The McPattern (right) just displays all the perfect plaids all in one. What better way to remember the 90s?

vanssk8hiAs someone who has recently become obsessed with the Vans Sk8 Hi shoes I had to include them. They go with just about anything and are a great change from the all stars and Authentics that I normally wear.

rollins_shirtFirst of all one of my secret obsessions is long sleeved graphic tees. Something that is pretty rare nowadays. When I first saw this shirt from NY label, Obesity & Speed modeled after Henry Rollins’ tattoos I thought, “brilliant”. Available at Deer Dana.

drAs if they couldn’t make Docs any more cool? Oh wait they just did. I’m seriously obsessed with these. Like to the point of madness. Available at Dr. Martens.

hungry_eyewearJust because we are in the dead of winter doesn’t mean we can’t still obsess about sunglasses. I discovered this Australian eyewear brand, Hungry just a few months ago and I’m completely amazed at their range. Each frame is so classic and perfectly unisex. I’ve been wearing this pair, The Bold Jacks for months on end with no plans to stop anytime soon.

castof

Cast of Vices has been one of my favorite brands for a while now. Their designs are always so imaginative and just edgy enough to push the boundaries of originality. The ‘coming or going‘ bracelet is a play on the hospital bands that we often overlook but they really are simple with great design features. Gimme.

gwenThe bondage pants of the 70s UK punk scene made a bit of a comeback in the 90s thanks to Gwen Stefani. I had a pair of Lip Service ones that were pink, white, and black. I’m also kicking myself that I have no idea where they are now.  Oh, well at least there’s eBay.

sedge

When my buddy Sedge over at ASOS announced that she had written a book on the ins and outs of Twitter I was super excited. Being a fellow social media junkie and her being a fellow grunge sister I had to check it out. It’s full of some of the best accounts to follow and gives you pointers for navigating the world of Twitter. Available at ASOS.

jessePhotographer Jesse Frohman was the last photographer to shoot Kurt Cobain in a formal photoshoot. We’ve all seen the iconic photos from the last set but he finally released a book this Fall detailing his experiences and sharing unreleased photos and contact sheets. This is probably on the top of my list overall. Available at Amazon.

Hope you enjoyed the selections! What are on some of your must have lists?

Sometimes it’s as if there are two people living inside my head. Each one has their own set of rules and moods. Today’s current mood is torn between minimal and grit. Two sides of my favorite and yet completely opposite aesthetic tastes.

Menswear Monday : Evan Peters

evan-peters-on-quicksilvers-look-in-x-men-days-of-future-pastYes, it’s Tate. If you watch American Horror Story then you will totally get this post. Over the past four seasons actor Evan Peters has played a multitude of characters all from the anthology series by Ryan Murphy. He’s been a depressed grunge teenager, a suspected serial killer, a frat boy Frankenstein and now in the current Freak Show season, he’s just Jimmy Darling.

One of the reasons I like Evan Peters so much is his impressive dossier of characters in such a short period of time. Completely adapting to the environment and decade almost seems like such an ease.  He’s engaged to Emma Roberts, a fellow cast mate. Also, he doesn’t do many shoots but the ones I’ve seen are pretty badass.
