There’s something about this series by Russian photographer, Alice Calypso that really drew my interest. Poised as an almost Alice in Wonderland through the streets, this reminds me of a lost and more simple world. Where the 90s are still in tact.

Dark and mysterious is the mood and atmosphere of this editorial from Milan for the site. Shot by Simone Golfieri and styled by Serena Pompei, we are taken into a world of nonchalance and indifference but with an edgy rebellious spirit.

This post is a little bit of a departure from the usual, but what would it be without a little change. Swim Deep is a group from Birmingham, UK formed in 2010 with an indie pop sound and a nod to early 90s style. While their music is not typically what one would identify as the “grunge” sound, it’s clear that they were influenced by the style. I have their song “King City” on one of my Spotify playlists for late night dreaming. So, this post I thought would be good to appreciate the grunge style of the past that really transcends many musical genres even today.

This Spring I happened to catch “Palo Alto”, director Gia Coppola’s debut feature film based on James Franco’s book on adolescent life in Northern California. I was instantly drawn to the “Coppola aesthetic”, as it relates so much to what high school was like for me growing up in Washington, DC. It really is a film to put on your list to watch.
Jack Kilmer, who is the son of actor Val Kilmer had a breakthrough role in the film. I think its safe to say that this isn’t the last that we will be hearing from him. His honest portrayal of Teddy reminded so much of the demeanor of guys in my own classes in school. From his grungy attire and all around angst, it really put me right back to being the awkward girl in school doing random things for all sorts of reasons.
He even captured the attention of Hedi Slimane, as he walked in the Saint Laurent mens SS15 show just a few months ago. Whether actor or model he’s got an interesting look that lends to all sorts of genres.
Piczo is a London based photographer who has captivated me with his photography for i-D magazine (one of my longtime favorite mags). Originally from Osaka, he began taking photos of Japanese rock bands. Now his work captures the raw London youth and rock spirit that he is inevitably drawn to. Much like myself.

The Fall look book from Korean label, CRES. E. DIM‘s second line, Dim. E Cres gives me a whole new reason to look forward to the Fall season. I pretty much long for the end of summer just as soon as it begins each year. This take on a modern sportwear school girl mixed with a touch of 90s edge is one of the most original takes on fashion I’ve seen for a minute. Kudos, Dim. E Cres.

We all want good things to last forever. Sometimes in our heads they do.

Whether we go up or down there is a slope to life. In either direction, it’s the path that makes things interesting and shapes us along the way.
