Melody Ehsani On Life + Times

me leigh 381x540 Melody Ehsani On Life + Times

One of our fave ladies Melody Ehsani gets love from Life+Times in a feature written by no less than the amazing Dream Hampton:

Melody Ehsani is as beautiful as anything she’s ever created. She experiments with fashion and makeup in ways that anticipate trends (she shaved one side of her head about five years before Cassie) and her presence single-handedly transforms a room she enters. Still, she’s soulful and her jewelry, worn by music’s biggest trendsetters, always seems to carry a story or history, or even humor (see the enamel “I’m Fly” jet plane ring). She’s intentional in every way, she holds a direct gaze and is generous and disciplined about keeping her word. Melody’s drive and focus have given her brand cache. And she’s just beginning…

Interview: Jeremey Scott Talks To Sneaker Freaker

j scott head 1 540x358 Interview: Jeremey Scott Talks To Sneaker Freaker

One of the institutions in sneaker culture, the illustrious Sneaker Freaker, got to pick the brain of Snob  favorite Jeremy Scott. A worthy read as you can see:

Do you think that people take fashion too seriously?
Yes I do. It should be fun, it should be something that you play with. Fashion should be… frivolous. I guess the thing that’s hard for me to understand is why other people see fashion in that way, because I just don’t. I don’t think I see life in that way either. Even when really bad things happen, I can still kind of chuckle about it. It doesn’t mean it’s not serious. But I could still probably make a joke about it, you know? And have a little laugh, even though I’m upset. I just think of fashion as a church, where they kneel down and pray in front of a blouse. It’s not meant for that! I want my clothes to have a life. I want people to live in them and wear them and create memories in them, meet their boyfriend and then have pictures on Facebook, then going back and thinking ‘Oh, I was wearing that jacket,’ and that has so much more emotion instead of something that’s so precious you don’t even want to wear it!

Highsnobette Superfertile Murder aw 2011 382x5401 Kali Arulpragasam Invoices Her Sister MIA For Jewels

We showed Super Fertile designer Kali Arulpragasam’s latest jewellery collection titled “Murder” (one look featured above) last week and today Stylelist has followed up with an interview with the designer. If you don’t already know, she is the older sister of M.I.A. and in the interview she was asked what her sibling thinks of her work:

What does M.I.A. think of the collection?
I tend to not give my jewels to celebrities, so she usually gets an invoice from me when she wants something. After I released the first images of “Murder” during the first week of June she tweeted it, so I know she approves. I’m experimenting with a new concept which is not to use celebrities to sell my work. I never use celebrities. I must be the only designer to turn down Lady Gaga. I don’t even have a press agent. I’m approaching this as art, my jewelry is wearable art.

Darn! Perhaps not the best of friends those two, but they certain share the commonality of wearing their intensity on their sleeves, a trait which of course we admire greatly.

“We were drawn to fashion early on,” the bffs said when asked what prompted them to choose careers in fashion. “It is an easy and accessible way to express your mood. We really enjoy the sociology behind fashion and why people buy. We loved that developing someone’s image was essentially branding them and we have been focusing on branding people and products ever since!”

Azzedine Alaïa Interview: His Views On Karl Lagerfeld, Anna Wintour & More

22 June 2011, 13.42 | Posted in Fashion, interviews | No comments »

Virginie mag-azzedine

Virginie Magazine features an in depth interview with icon Azzedine Alaïa, in which he openly shares his opinions about fashion, Karl Lagerfeld and even Anna Wintour:

How do you feel about Karl Lagerfeld?

I don’t like his fashion, his spirit, his attitude. It’s too much caricature. Karl Lagerfeld never touched a pair of scissors in his life. That doesn’t mean that he’s not great, but he’s part of another system. He has capacity. One day he does photography, the next he does advertisements for Coca-Cola. I would rather die than see my face in a car advertisement. We don’t do the same work. And I think that he is not doing a favor to young stylists who might think it works that way. They’re going to fall before they retire.

Kreayshawn Chats About Being Signed By Columbia

10 June 2011, 14.34 | Posted in Music, interviews | 1 comment »

The buzz grows louder for songstress Kreayshawn, who was recently interviewed by our friends at Karmaloop TV. The chat took place shortly after she was signed by Columbia Records, which will release “Gucci Gucci” as her first single.

She starts off the interview by providing the correct pronunciation of her name and discusses despositing the advance from Columbia Records with an account balance of $170 and how she always grew up “extremely broke” and with her new money might buy “Cup of Noodles instead of Top Ramen because it comes with a cup….a little fancy.” She also opines on the history and the future of the word swag: “There’s going to be new words but I think swags gonna be….I can’t stop it. I’ve sat and tried to think of words I can replace it with but I can’t…swag.”

If you’re interesting in knowing more, here’s a good interview, in which she lists her mom (a lead guitarists in a few different punk bands), The Spice Girls and Missy Elliots as big influencers.
