This weekend rapper and fashion influencer Theophilus London performed at the Prospect Park Bandshell. It was an aesthetic clusterfuck. At peak heat advisory hours, the crowd looked unnaturally chic and danced so hard it became a health risk (really!). It was glorious.
London is a 25-year-old Trinidad-born, Brooklyn-raised rapper that pulls from an impressive array of sounds including new-wave pop, jazz and rock with some lo-fi distortion and trap ... Read More

Hey, I didn’t say it.
According to Jessica Rey, former Power Ranger and current swimsuit designer, antiquated descriptions of the bikini state it's a garment favored by 'licentious mediterranean types' (me) and that only someone who lacked 'decency and tact' (also me) would wear it. As she goes through the history of women's swimwear in a recent video, she acknowledges that opinions of the bikini have clearly changed, and that she created her ... Read More

What separates Pamela Des Barres, in her own words, from any other “rock historian” is the appeal of being "the person who was able to sit between Jimmy Page and Robert Plant while they were doing the set list for Led Zeppelin II.”
But she’s more than a simple artifact of music’s golden era, of course. She just happens to be a former member of one of the first (and, to knowledge, only) groupie bands. She's also a rock journalist and author of ... Read More
I didn’t know that I needed a bejeweled pineapple turban until now. Or, better yet, a minature coconut tree hat. Luckily, Tami Bar-Lev has provided the world with both, along with many other surreal and headpieces.

There’s a fine line between ... Read More
