Robotripping: On Tour With Death Valley Girls

Never Stop.

Waking up to fresh coffee in Oakland. Refueling in eastern Washington. Roadside breakfast diners held in high regard. Greeted in Spokane, WA with a live radio interview by KYRS. Letting off steam. Chereis and her hair. Entering your other dimension. Canadian fans. “Hell’s house band.” Somewhere in Utah. Stay limber before the show. Mono Lake, CA. The first show of […]

And now a Mash-Up of Our Favorite Stereotypes From Paris and L.A. With Some Expert Art Criticism

“When the time comes, hold my baguette and swim for the surface,” (1999). Widely seen as one of Friend’s most ambitious works, his sensitive rendering of Los Angeles beach-body types received applause from both critics and the public alike. As in so many of his works, Friend used hair to depict the Faustian struggle of swimming in a canal—with the […]

An Interview About Casting With Givenchy Artistic Director Riccardo Tisci

"I’m looking for the timeless, the effortless in everything I do."

He will make you a star. This isn’t a promise, or a lure, this isn’t Hollywood. This is about love, because Riccardo Tisci feels love deeply. He also sees beauty in ways that most of us initially don’t—until we’re told—or wooed by the magic that Tisci brings to life when he discovers a model, casts her in one of his […]

Keke Palmer Is Not Buying In

“Society is not always saying: do yoga, meditate, go to the park and read a book. Society’s yelling go buy so-and-so jacket, you need those new shoes, and if you don’t have this Lambhorgini well you might as well just fucking kill yourself!”

I’m sitting in the dining car of a train gliding north up the Pacific coast. A man with a beard down to his belt just walked by with a tray full of soda. I start talking to Keke Palmer—my ear pressed against the phone so tight I feel it beginning to redden. Palmer, 23 years old, Virgo, speaks to me […]

Tea with Michèle Lamy

Tea with Michèle Lamy

“I lived 29 years in L.A., and when I came back to Paris, some friends that I had not seen during all this time told me, ‘Oh well you dress the same.’”

Her fingers are black. Not a dark, sooty black, but a deep and inky midnight. When her hand touches her face to brush away a hair, or when it moves to lift the delicate porcelain teacup off the table, you fully expect some of that blackness to cling to it, but the stains are skin-deep—made by soaking her fingers in […]

In 1931 Jan Nehera opened his first storefront in Prague, with an innovative business strategy that advertised itself as taking fashion from the manufacturer straight to the consumer. The Nehera atelier flourished into a powerhouse with over 130 storefronts in pre-WWII Europe, setting fashion trends in cities as far as Vienna, and Paris, before that terrible conflict banished the label […]

Los Angeles arts patron Eva Chow on how the LACMA Art+Film Gala became one of the most sought-after plates in the city

"Like every organization or like any good anything, one needs some kind of a leader."

Eva Chow is looking down at me with a serious expression—not a particularly happy one, truth-be-told, which is a little strange seeing as she’s wearing a wedding dress. I’m gazing up at her portrait, a quite striking work by Julian Schnabel that sees her painted onto a golden yellow background. The work sits above an ornate stone fireplace, mirrored at […]

Las Aves Talk About Partying on in a Scary World

“Our songs are about dreamlike influences. But strong events in Paris, like the terrorist attacks, have definitely influenced our music.”

There are stranger things in heaven and earth than are dreamed of in our philosophies, and it seems art-pop/future-wave band Las Aves want to explore all of them. “The unexpected and the unknown play a big role in our sound,” says the upbeat Jules Cassignol (one quarter of the band) over Skype from Paris. “You can either really represent the […]
