At first the early 2000s produced a crop of young hipster bands from New York, which at the time were new and very different. The indie hipster scene has since quieted in New York and music seems to be firing up again in Los Angeles. [ Continue Reading ]

Well respected avant garde designer Jeremy Scott delivered a fun, wild, and surprisingly wearable Fall 2009 collection.  Showing the men and women’s collection in the same show, the clothes meshed well together in a subtle androgynous context held together by the same colors and themes.  The main theme was Mikey Mouse, iconically stamped on high top sneaks for men and [ Continue Reading ]
