Illustrator Angelica Hicks On Her Graffiti Gucci Geeks

lede-angelica
Since Alessandro Michele’s takeover of Gucci in 2015, the brand has applied his playful spirit to a vast array of projects beyond its runway shows. The house has made memes and even commissioned graffiti. Its latest endeavor marries both concepts with the help of artist and Instagram meme lord Angelica Hicks. Together, Gucci and Hicks have unveiled a massive wall art project in New York and Milan; Hicks’s #GucciGeeks will also appear on a limited edition run of tees. “Seeing my illustration on such a large scale, akin to a billboard, is insane,” Hicks wrote Vogue over email. The project follows a similar rollout as that with artist Jayde Fish in 2016. “Nearly a year ago I was contacted by Gucci,...

366150

Instagram has proven time and time again to be the perfect platform for documenting the delicious minutiae of everyday life. This, of course, extends to everything – including the details of the human body. The three accounts we present today are far more chic and subtle than #abs or #legday and the like, though; consider them a reminder of our natural selves, and the ceaseless inspiration that bodyparts can provide.

@girlspreading You’ve likely heard of ‘manspreading’ by now, whereby men sit with their legs spaced far apart, much of the time whilst sat on public transport and to the annoyance of fellow passengers. But is this trait exclusive to men? @girlspreading says no. “Why keep those knees...

GettyImages-504708913
While some women are proudly forgoing shaving in favor of embracing their bodies au naturale, others are still removing their body hair in the name of beauty — and it seems no kind of hair is off-limits. A trend, as seen on Brows By Liz esthetician Liz Lugo’s Instagram account @browsby_liz, involves waxing the hairline to remove baby hairs, define an uneven hairline, or even to change the shape of your face. The video, posted last week, shows a woman getting the back of her neck waxed, removing those fine, wispy baby hairs that aren’t long enough to pull into a ponytail (you know the ones). Lugo’s video has since been viewed more than 100,000 times, which seems to indicate plenty of...
