This weekend rapper and fashion influencer Theophilus London performed at the Prospect Park Bandshell. It was an aesthetic clusterfuck. At peak heat advisory hours, the crowd looked unnaturally chic and danced so hard it became a health risk (really!). It was glorious.
London is a 25-year-old Trinidad-born, Brooklyn-raised rapper that pulls from an impressive array of sounds including new-wave pop, jazz and rock with some lo-fi distortion and trap ... Read More

Our very first issue!
To celebrate this milestone, we’re throwing a good old-fashioned Brooklyn birthday bash featuring performances from ... Read More

It's almost summer, which is the perfect time to share this adorable, Coney Island lookbook from designer Julie Mollo. Mollo is one of my favorite independent designers.

With the second series of Girls wrapped up, it's apparently time for bros to take over. The BUST office is cracking up over this new YouTube series, Bros, which spoofs Dunham's Girls, focusing instead on a group of douchey dude-friends living in Brooklyn.

I was never a big fan of summer camp--in fact, the thought of swimming lessons still gives me agita--but I'd give my two (now permanent) front teeth to spend an entire day in the arts-and-crafts room.
