Take a stroll through the hallways with the New York duo as they debut their AW15 lookbook and talk furries, cliques and re-enrolling as rule breakers.
“Furry subculture, medicine, hospitals, goth punk girls, vampires, Guro Lolita, ball-jointed dolls,” these are a few of design duo Ammerman Schlösberg's favourite things – at least for AW15. Treading deep within the dark side this season, black PVC boots were buckled high, stitching was zigzagged in Bride of Frankenstein fashion, fur was cuffed and purposed into pinstriped tails, and black hair was untamed.
This week, we're graced with new album releases from both Earl Sweatshirt and Action Bronson.
Earl's self-produced album, "I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside," is available on iTunes and streaming through Spotify. According to Pitchfork, "the album's aesthetic is still based in the ambling beats, messy synth counterpoint and off-jazz chording to which Odd Future releases usually defer." His 10 track album features Vince Staples, Na'kel, and others. Meanwhile, Action Bronson has released his 13 track album, "Mr Wonderful." Stereogum says, "It's a full-bodied soulful album that kicks off with a Billy Joel sample, and stays deep in jazz and soul territory." Bronson's album features tracks with Chance the Rapper, Big Body Bes, and more.

Designer Gosha Rubchinskiy’s Autumn/Winter 2015 collection, which has been presented during PFW, at a Parisian protestant church combines two different youth subcultures; the retro 80s consumerism of the Italian youth that were known as Paninaro emerging from Milan, and the macho vibes of the Russian Nazbol an underground party created in the 90s.
Mayer Hawthorne and Jake Uno have teamed up to form the funk duo, Tuxedo. They released their self named album, "Tuxedo," on March 3, 2015, and since then have remained #1 on R&B charts. The duo also hosted an album release show the following night at The Regent Theater in Downtown LA. With Mayer Hawthorne being one of my favorite artists, it's really fun seeing him team up with Jake Uno to create an album that just makes you want to dance - which is what their original intention was when they first started. NPR said, "Jake and Hawthorne have mastered a new old sound." With Dam-Funk and Peanut Butter Wolf as opening acts, it was one groovy night to remember.
