Ione Gamble is a twenty-year-old journalist and self-proclaimed Winona Ryder wannabe, and she’s just added Editor-in-Chief to her resume. The London native launched her internet sensation Polyester Zine this fall, dedicated to celebrating “trash culture” and all things girly, proudly bearing the slogan “have faith in your own bad taste.” I caught up with Ione after her successful launch party and asked her a few questions on Polyester ...

  If you haven’t picked up on it already: We love Lena Dunham. Throughout her career, Lena has faced her mistakes, acknowledged her privilege, and grown from both. With every valid critique of her choices and actions, I see her seeking to learn from these criticisms and most importantly, to change accordingly and do the right thing. Last week, I had the privilege of listening to Lena and our cover girl alumna Carrie Brownstein in conversation at the Not ... Read More
Miranda July is at it again. The director, artist, writer, and overall creative powerhouse just launched a new messaging service in collaboration with Miu Miu, and it's awesome—though anything involving both Miranda and Miuccia Prada is enough to turn my eyes into giant cartoon hearts. The app, titled Somebody, was created to explore the chaotic opposite of the efficient and concise communication we enjoy today. As July told AnOther, Somebody is the ... Read More
I have a confession to make: I'm a compulsive list-maker. Of course, this isn't always a bad thing; I've learned the hard way that if I don't write something down, I most likely won't do it (or it'll take me weeks, or even months, to get around to). Short, daily to-do lists that split up bigger tasks into smaller incremental actions have been proven time and time again to increase productivity. But I wondered whether list-making was also diminishing my quality of ... Read More

The Berlin and London based artist created the short film for Dazed Digital’s Visionaries series after watching the viral YouTube video How to Break Out of Zip Ties. The YouTube tutorial has received a little over 3.4 million hits, which so accurately represents the culture we ... Read More
Yesterday morning, I woke up at 3AM. I got ready as quickly as possible, slipped into the perfect pantsuit, and walked out my door by 4AM. I hailed a cab, got out at the Barnes and Noble in Union Square, and I sat in line (and sat in line, and sat in line, and sat in line). For the following seven hours, I was ushered through various lines and did a great deal of sitting, standing, chatting, and wishing I had chosen footwear other than kitten heels. But at the end ...

Celebrities. We know 'em, we love 'em, and there are a select few that never fail to inspire us. As such, it's all the more exciting when we find out two of our favorite ladies see in each other what we see in them. What could be better than two of your personal heroines swapping clothes, sipping beers, and collaborating? These are the friendships we can't get enough of: 1. Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, co-stars and creators; comediennes extraordinaire. First ... Read More
  If Holly Andres isn’t on your radar, you’re missing out. Andres is a Portland-based photographer whose work feels akin to the likes of Alfred Hitchcock and Cindy Sherman, but all the more fresh and exciting. Her photographs often explore the tension between an apparently approachable subject matter and a darker, sometimes disturbing subtext. “I’m interested in the cognitive dissonance that can result from employing formal elements such as bright ...
