Listen: Gorgon City, “Imagination” ft. Katy Menditta

gorgon-city

“Imagination” ft. Katy Menditta, Gorgon City
Genre: house/electronic
Gorgon City sounds like: Disclosure’s brothers from another mother
Worth checking out: “FTPA” ft. Erik Hassle, “Unmissable” ft. Zak Abel, “Ready for Your Love” ft. MNEK, “Elevate” ft. Anne-Marie
The ideal setting to play “Imagination”: in your living room after splitting a bottle of wine with your best friend. Ideally singing along to it with your imaginary microphones.

Gorgon City has been climbing the ranks to be among the biggest players in UK music after releasing a couple of charted singles this year, with “Ready for Your Love” being the most notable. Most recently, the London duo joined Rudimental for a special performance on a Virgin Atlantic aircraft, which was streamed live as they flew over the Atlantic Ocean. Yeah, technology, am I right?

Pie Guys Pizza: Wayne, NJ

There’s a new pizza spot in New Jersey, and you know that means that I had to make the journey to scope the place out. There simply cannot be a crispy grandma slice in my state that I haven’t sampled, so it was the first thing I ordered when I reached Pie Guys Pizza‘s counter. It didn’t even take me until the first bite to realize it was a work of art.

The owners of Pie Guys are two young guys who are trying to make the pizza business hip and fun, and they’re definitely making that happen. Everything from the store’s quirky pizza guy logo, the stylish and engaging menu, and the artisinally crafted pies is fresh and cool. Continue Reading »

Milan Fashion Week: Missoni Ready-to-Wear Spring 2015

There’s something so effortlessly glam about the styles shown at Missoni‘s latest Milan Fashion Week runway show. From colorful tunics to breezy knit maxi dresses, silky turban wraps and tailored trench coats, the Spring 2015 looks are just so happy and elegant.

The models seriously looked like characters out of classic Italian novels, those chic ladies who sit alongside riverbanks reading, sipping cappuccino, and eating pistachio gelato (a.k.a, living my dream life.)

New York Fashion Week: Rag & Bone Spring/Summer 2015

If  Rag & Bone‘s New York Fashion Week runway show is to be believed, military-inspired, masculine outerwear is making a huge comeback with a totally reimagined twist this season.

The pieces that were shown on the runway were immaculately draped and fitted to a woman’s body (I say fitted, but in no way were the looks “tight” at all), making the once boxy and oversized accessories really sultry and ridiculously cool.

New York Fashion Week: Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2015

W Magazine

This season’s New York Fashion Week featured tons of creative ideas in fashion and beauty alike, and I need to start off The Collabor-eight’s coverage with the Marc Jacobs S/S15 show, which was actually the last official show of NYFW.  Somehow, the runway show managed to combine totally natural elements like nearly-barefaced beauty looks and over-the-top accented fashions like glistening silver and gold dresses and military-inspired gowns.

Converse x Missoni

Just when I thought my favorite kicks couldn’t get any cooler, I was walking through Nordstrom and spotted perhaps the coolest Converse All Stars ever, which were crafted with Missoni fabrics. High tops, low sneaks, classic and vintage designs all decked out with the fashion house’s glittery, colorful chevron? Pretty much my dream shoes.  Continue Reading »

Listen: MKTO’s “No More Second Chances”

You may already love MKTO‘s smash radio hit “Classic,” or their beautiful followup single, “American Dream,” but I’d love to share my favorite track off of their debut self-titled album. It’s called “No More Second Chances” ft. Jessica Ashley, and it’s been on repeat since I first picked up their album. Continue Reading »
