In a fit of domestication (and, in this case, transparency), I spent this past Sunday assembling IKEA furniture for my girlfriend. And as anyone who has ever spent their weekend assembling IKEA furniture can tell you, the only thing it makes you want to do is throw on something caustic and smash that pile of Swedish voodoo back into the splinters from whence it came.

In honor of Fashion Week Kim Mesches, a Brooklyn-based fashion designer, staged a guerrilla fashion show on the L train. Check it out below: [Read more…]
Tonight: Jumpstart NYC Fashion Week at Le Baron
Based in Paris, Surface to Air made itself at home on Mercer Street when it opened the doors to its New York flagship store less than two years ago. The brand doubles as a studio at the helm of creative projects for clients ranging from Kavinsky to Kid Cudi (check out their short film for “Mr. Rager” here). With an impressive list of past collaborators, they’re still going strong; just in time for Fashion Week, they’ve released the new Aaron Young x S2A collection, which features graphic tees for men and dresses for women that might as well say “Wish You Were Here.” If you missed yesterday’s invite-only launch party, catch up tonight at Le Baron on Mulberry Street. Dave 1 of Chromeo will be DJing, and if you weren’t already aware, the man knows how to dress. Take a peek at the video after the cut if you need proof, inspiration, or eye candy. I’m looking at you, too, gentlemen.
