If twins (and surf buffs) Mike, left, and Alex Faherty have one mission, it’s to own the summer experience with Faherty Brand, their debut line of print-happy swim and casual sportswear. To drive home that point, they’re even going cross-country this summer in a trailer-turned-pop-up boutique because, hey, if you can’t make it to the beach, Faherty’s going to bring the beach to you. Here, the brothers talked shop, sustainable fashion and even squeezed in a few surfing tips, too.Read More
Before you escape for the long weekend, here’s a refresher to get you in the loose and languid laid-back mood. Dubbed The Weekender — no explanation necessary — the cocktail was custom-created for us by Forrest Butler, co-founder of Royal Rose organic artisanal syrups. Consider it your new beach or poolside accessory.
Memorial Day is around the corner, the heat waves are coming, so what better time than now to turn the spotlight on a new band out of L.A. called Hot as Sun? The music trio — from left, Deborah Stoll, Jamie Jackson and WAZ — just released a debut album Night Time Sound Desire, a mix of sunny synth sounds and dreamy electro-pop-meets-hip hop. We talked to them here.Read More
Ellsworth Kelly is having a moment. Well, another one. In honor of the artist’s 90th birthday next week, a number of museums are spotlighting his work, among them The Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia. On display till September 2nd, Ellsworth Kelly: Sculpture on the Wall features his influential monochrome paintings (above) as well as the massive Sculpture on the Wall centerpiece, which is having its own milestone moment. Originally installed in the Philadelphia Transportation Building, it’s the first time the work has been back in the City of Brotherly Love since it was removed and brought to New York in 1998.

South of the border, down Mexico way, is where we’ve most recently fallen in love. Of course, Tory’s long been a fan — artists’ haunt San Miguel and Tulum, with its ancient ruins, are two of her travel favorites — but the current object of our affection? Mexico City, where we’ve opened up a new boutique in Antara Polanco. Here’s our travel guide to the city’s must-see, must-visit and must-eat spots, from the best place for mescal to Frida Kahlo’s Casa Azul. We’re even throwing in our very own Mexico playlist to get you in the mood.

There’s something magnetic about Mexico — from the culture scene in Mexico City to the beautiful ruins of Tulum to the vibrant art in San Miguel. The rich musical heritage runs deep, but there are also new sounds emerging that reflect how dynamic Mexico’s music roots are…and how much more there is to explore. To mark the opening of our boutique in Mexico City, Randall Poster put together this playlist for us.Read More
You’ve heard of camouflage, but never quite like this. Peruvian artist Cecilia Paredes, who currently lives in Philadelphia, hides herself in plain sight by painting herself into landscapes and scenes. Just take a close look at the work above — you’ll see an outline of an arm, shoulders…. Here, we chat with the artist herself.Read More
A stylish raincoat doesn’t sound like the most elusive of fashion finds, yet Marie Saeki and Yurika Nakazono recognized a void in the market and, in 2009, launched Terra New York, a collection of city-chic rainwear and waterproof accessories. We spoke to Marie, who also owns her own public relations firm, and Yurika about the line and got their business advice, too.Read More
