Discovering Music & Mistaken Identity With Artist-to-Watch Jacob Summers of Avid Dancer

Oct 2, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich  |  1 Comment

We've all heard the story before: a kid is raised in a super strict religious household and grows up to kill it in the music industry. It happened to Kings of Leon and it happened to Katy Perry. But what sets Avid Dancer's Jacob Summers apart (aside from him being fairly new to the scene) is his genuine unabashed enthusiasm for not only his own music (which brings to mind a low-key '70s beach rock movie), but for the music around him.

If I were to ask who designed your recently-acquired Louis Vuitton Dora bag, you might be able to casually toss out the name Nicolas Ghesquière. Fashion-forward women know Alexander Wang is backing Balenciaga, Riccardo Tisci is designing for Givenchy and Raf Simons is in charge of the collections at Dior, but can you name the designer behind the fragrances sitting on your vanity?

Hamilton Leithauser Talks Post-Walkmen Black Hours, His Writing Process, the Coen Brothers & Drunk Cross-Eyed Germans

Sep 3, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich  |  1 Comment

High school marked my musical awakening, a time when I started to really construct my own identity outside of my mom's water-damaged Cat Stevens records, my dad's old Johnny Cash, and the popular boy bands of the early 1990s (I'll never live that down). It was then I discovered my affinity for Nick Cave's poetic brutality, Morrissey's dramatic flair, Billy Bragg's political fortitude, and of course, The Walkmen's confident frontman Hamilton Leithauser who made every note seem essential.

Aug 21, 2014  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

We’ll be the first to admit that it’s rare for guys to find a label that really speaks to them. Most men opt for comfort rather than fashion, and those who are searching for their own style are left with limited options—restricted to department stores and a few independent labels.

Award-Winning Designer Campion Platt Discusses Just What Makes a Home Luxury

Aug 20, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich  |  1 Comment

New York-based Campion Platt has done everything, from designing homes and boutique hotels to his own line of custom furniture, but no matter what the project is, Platt always has luxury on his mind. To him, luxury isn't about the flashiest bejeweled furniture accents or the dollar tag on that new Persian rug, it’s about open spaces you can breathe and relax in. It may seem simple enough, but making a Manhattan home into a light and airy space isn't that easy. Platt was kind enough to take some time to chat with us about how he defines luxury, his own personal style, and the craziest client request he's gotten so far.
