Week of February 22 – February 28. OWSLA may or may not be collaborating with a streetwear brand, Posso enters Vogue territory, and Kygo is ready to shred some mountains. But the biggest fashion news story of the week? We’ve launched our first collection with Bad Kids Collective!
Daily Beat x Bad Kids Collective (#DBxBK) apparel is here!
It’s finally here! We are beyond thrilled to have worked with Bad Kids Collective on our exclusive apparel line! Designed by our Director of Brand Development, Sydney Jow, our pieces are designed to bring your outfits a seamless transition from day to night. We debuted the first two pieces, pictured, at last weekend’s installment of the Bad Kids Day Club alongside the BKC Spring 2015 collection. The Disco Fries and Elephante provided the perfect soundtrack to the stylish blitz. You’ll be able to buy #DBxBK apparel online soon, only at BadKidsCollective.com!
Skrillex, with OWSLA, has another surprise up his sleeve
Quite a few things took place Thursday in the world of Skrillex, one being that much-hyped 24-hour Jack Ü live set. Just imagine a house party high in the hills of Los Angeles, with artists like Mija and Dillon Francis in attendance – and which the LAPD shut down at 18 hours. Well, sometime before that, Skrillex found the time to collaborate with Youth Machine. Whether the result is a full line of OWSLA gear or a capsule set of graphic tees is unclear, but I’m already envisioning outfits in which I’ll incorporate the T-shirt design pictured above. He announced the collaboration – sort of – via his Instagram on Friday. Impatient for the release date (speculated to be April)? Bide your time with Jack Ü’s debut record, released during their 24-hour live set, Skrillex & Diplo Present Jack Ü. The man doesn’t sleep, does he?
Posso strike a pose
They’re contributors for Style.com who pair high-waisted denim cut-offs with pure white, ’60’s-inspired boots. On stage, they set the DJ booth aflame with their killer sets. The L.A.-bred Posso are longtime friends who double as DJs and designers, and they have the Instagram feed of an obsessive fashion blogger. It’s an endless stream of coveted shoes and one-off jackets! The photo above was snapped during a shoot for Elle Girl Japan. Notice the white statement pieces? Fresh whites will make a huge return for spring, so start planning now – here’s a headstart at Motel Rocks.
Kygo brings back the ’80s
I must’ve listened to Kygo during at least 72 different instances this winter, give or take. His tropical house beats are those rays of sunshine we’re lacking as of late! Lean back, listen to his remix of “Younger” by Seinabo Sey, and tell me you disagree. Here, Kygo wears an equally radiant vintage jacket. Staring at it makes me regret ever passing on that $20 vintage coat rack at Search & Destroy (in St. Mark’s) last month. You might find a similar style in any vintage or secondhand boutique, such as Buffalo Exchange or Beacon’s Closet.
Laura Fama, Dimepiece LA co-owner, pays homage to the classics
The Vans Sk8-hi has an extensive history that dates back to 1978 Los Angeles. It’s only fitting that the co-owner of Dimepiece LA, Laura Fama, rocks a pair along with the line’s signature monogrammed pieces. With this particular style’s all-white leather, the term “street elegance” comes to mind, especially when I envision the label’s tendency toward minimal black-and-white. And Laura’s sneaker pick is made even better when paired with street culture’s favorite almanac, All Gone.
