For Love & Lemons

“Derived from those sun-soaked “Lemonade Stand Days, designers, owners, and BFF’s Gillian Mahin and Laura Hall are the masterminds behind the line For Love & Lemons. Born in Wyoming, and now based in Los Angeles, the collection is anything but conventional – rebelling against the standards of modern society.  The line taunts with intrigue as a clash of colors and patterns are evoked by chic separates and devious dresses. Where the modern gypsy is punk, For Love & Lemons is a brand to relate to, for that girl that doesn’t follow trends, she makes them.” Collections can be viewed HERE

Chloë Sevigny’s 90s Throwback

NOWNESS’s  special on Chloë Sevigny featuring a fashion home movie and a Q&A between Chloë and Christopher Bollen, editor-at-large for Interview magazine. Part 1 can be viewed Here and Part 2 can be viewed Here

“Shooting in the late 90s during one of Chloë Sevigny’s visits from New York City to London, photographer and filmmaker Michael Cleary enlisted super-stylist Alister Mackie, then a fellow student, to collaborate on Surface, an intimate film starring the future Oscar and Golden Globe nominee. Air-guitaring, playing dress-up and flitting in and out of a fragile waking dream, Sevigny was at the time an emerging ingénue, fresh from having starred in Larry Clark’s Kids, the film that cemented her position as one of the icons of her generation. “A lot was going on in her life at the time; she was getting into films and Hollywood,” says the director, who edited the never-before-seen 16mm film—which now features specially commissioned title art by Brooklyn musician and artist Hisham Bharoocha—into raw, black-and-white vignettes in the basement of Central Saint Martins. “We were just using what we had around,” adds Mackie. “It was the last revolutionary period in fashion where things actually changed.” In this first installment of our two-day celebration of the 90s as seen through Sevigny’s eyes, Interview magazine Editor-at-Large Christopher Bollen muses on his friend, the decades most enduring symbol.”  READ MORE
