The Shins + Danger Mouse = Broken Bells

02.22.2010 § Leave a comment

Hopefully this will bring your day some smooth tunes!

Their album is set to be released on March 9th, but you can listen to the whole album on their myspace. James Mercer’s voice (The Shins) is striking… Melodic and experimental…can’t get enough. Mercer on vocals, guitars and bass while Burton plays organ, drums, piano, synths and bass.

They’re set to play at The Troubadour on March 14th, who announced it via Twitter and this years SXSW … ready? set, I’m there!


NYFW 2010 – Proenza Schouler – A little street and a bit of school

02.17.2010 § Leave a comment

Duo Jack McCullough and Lazaro Hernandez presented tonight among some well-known admirers including Selma Blair, Nicole Richie, Mary-Kate Olsen, and Chloe Sevigny.

Sheer blouses with leather collars were constant alongside crop tops, short skirts and babydolls.

The star studded show was stunningly dark, eery with touches of radiance from their color palette consisting of hunter green, black and white, brown, maroon mixed with baby blue, heather grey, yellow and cobalt blue accents.

One of my faves were these graffit’d / marbled high waist skinny jeans that were apparently a result of a j brand collaboration.

Very street.

The little metal-laden clutch-bags that 1/3 of the models carried, can be pre-ordered for the next 23 hours exclusively. 

Hints of vintage varsity chic jackets with leather shoulder patches and leather sleeves… some with colored fur collars and pleated flannel.

Undone ratty hair and matted dark red lips ala Gossip Girl’s untamed rebel Jenny Humphrey was the look for their model muses.

Yes, we all know that the millitary trend wil be back in full force and will be seeing it in department stores and boutiques starting next season, but check out Nanette Lepore’s feminine approach to the trend.

Did you notice that the leggings to pair now are grey, colored or patterned? Like I said, stash the black ones in your closet for now.

Oh yea and those awesome bags are by Joy Gryson… If you, your pr firm or anyone connected to her ever run across this, the blue one with the red trim and chain is on my wishlist. *wink*
