Tell Me A Story

In San Francisco, one of the most popular things right now is a live story-telling event called Pop-Up Magazine. It has been covered by The New York Times and lots of other national media, so I won’t bore you with too many details, but the gist is this: people come on stage and tell you [...]

Searching For Sugarman

If you are like me, you love the story of how and why artists create work almost as much as the work itself. Whenever I discover something new that I like, I tend to delve into biographical research to find out more about the person behind the art. I remember when I first discovered the [...]

Women of Style + Substance

This morning I attended a breakfast fundraiser for Women Care Global. I must admit, I was not familiar with WCG and I was intrigued to gather some information at the event. Instead of a traditional not-for-profit business model, WCG actually sells and distributes different forms of birth control to be able to support their initiatives, [...]

I Still Love New York

I am actually out in California right now and as a lifelong New Yorker I am sad and wishing I was there and could do more to help. It feels very weird to be in 85 degree-weather while all of this is going on. The overwhelming community feeling within such a big city is so [...]

Grass Roots Hurricane Relief

As reports start to come in that train service and electricity are being restored to some parts of Manhattan, it is important that we don’t forget communities like Staten Island, The Rockaways, Brighton Beach, Coney Island and Red Hook that were all deeply affected and are still in states of emergency. The good news is [...]

Get Out of the House

So, if you live in New York City at this point you are most likely going stir-crazy. As the greatest city on earth (in my humble opinion) undertakes the arduous task of righting itself, here is an event that will both get you out of the house and help you participate in relief efforts. It’s [...]

Domino Kirke In Conversation

Domino Kirke is a woman of many talents. A classically trained singer, she fronted an eponymous band back in 2006 that toured with Lily Allen on Mark Ronson’s label, Allido. Then Domino met Morgan, a busker at the Union Street train station, and gave birth to their son, Cass, altering the trajectory of her life. [...]

Let Them Eat KK

If you like “powdered wigs, bitchy dicta and off-translations” you might like Let Them Eat KK, a project by Matt Fishbeck of Holy Shit and director Patrick Kwon. The duo created a series of posters in an edition of five that include hand-drawn illustrations, bits of text, autographs and other things they liked. After playing [...]

Adjustment Bureau

Michael Moskowitz is a bit of an international man of mystery. Raised in Northern California, he attended boarding schools in Nevada, Idaho, Montana and Maine before matriculating to college in New York, and graduate school in the U.K. The first several years of his career were spent as a Middle East foreign policy research analyst [...]

Fendi Bag + A Bad Attitude

For the 15th anniversary of what many call the first it-bag ever, Fendi teamed up with Maxfield LA to launch the self-explanatory “Baguettemania.” Three artists- Chaz Bojorquez, Kenny Scharf, and Pae White were chosen to create special limited edition baguettes for the event, that will be added to the insanely long list of Fendi collabs [...]
