Tattoo Artist Tati Compton on Instagram and the Occult

364574
There are a few things Instagram loves, but essentially it mostly comes down to cool people, clever imagery and human flesh. It’s rare to see someone manage to propagate this holy trinity as brilliantly, succinctly and cliché-avoidantly as stick ‘n’ poke tattoo artist Tati Compton. Her beautifully expressive linework and distinctive illustration style have placed her firmly in the vanguard of artists leading a recent revival of the somewhat primitive stick ‘n’ poke technique. For the uninitiated, in contrast to the buzzing needle gun used in most tattoo application, stick ‘n’ poke uses a needle dipped into ink, which then punctures the skin to create a permanent mark.

Forget Your Hands–Toe Nail Art Is Everything Right Now

landscape-1490735966-diagonal-three-comp-toes
It's getting to be that time where we swap out our winter boots in favor of more breathable *toeless* footwear (Riri's new Fenty x Puma slides, anyone?). For many women, that means defaulting to a monochrome pedicure. But after zombie scrolling through Instagram and stumbling on a few miscellaneous nail art accounts, we're considering giving our feet the same treatment we do our hands in the self-expression department. Yes, we mean nail art for the toes. At first blush, it may seem a bit unorthodox—is that really where we want to point people's attention?—but we've stumbled upon some undeniably-gorgeous designs that make a compelling case. Take for example New York-based nail artist Asumi Higashimura (AKA @asumi_0127) who has made the toes her canvas...

Best Wedding Guest Outfits

810 (5)

YOUR wedding guest updates? Suits are back: plump for ladylike pastel shades and pair with Nineties-style silk halter-necks or camisoles. Dresses, ditto: this season’s go-anywhere number is long, languid, and ripe for an occasion worthy of its fabulous colour hit. Speaking of colour, yellow is having a moment. Mustard and yolk are Vogue’s favourite hues, and they positively sing when paired with summer’s optic white accessories. What to avoid? Steer clear of stilettos – they’re a nightmare on gravel and grass – and ditch those festive cocktail rings. Earrings are the thing now; the more joyfully eccentric, the better. Here’s Vogue’s guide to what to wear to a wedding this spring.

JW Anderson and Uniqlo Are Teaming Up to Give Us the Design Collab of Our Dreams

032917-uniqlo-jw-anderson
The design collaboration we never knew we needed was announced today: J.W. Anderson and Uniqlo are teaming up to bring us a Fall/Winter 2017 menswear and womenswear line that will be available worldwide at uniqlo.com and in Uniqlo stores. Question here is are you screaming, because we’re definitely screaming. Jonathan Anderson, the British designer who brought us the ‘Pierce’ It bag, said of the partnership, “Collaborations are incredibly important in design. When I think of Uniqlo, I think of things that are perfectly made, that people have spent a lot of time considering; it’s a difficult job, and I think Uniqlo do it very well. Working with Uniqlo is probably the most incredible template of democracy in fashion, and it’s nice...

Y/Project: Why we are obsessed with this Paris label

Y-Project-2

Led by Belgian designer Glenn Martens since 2013, Y/Project has only recently gained cult status and the brand is an integral, yet lesser known contributor towards Paris’ new wave of young talent. Schooled in Antwerp, Martens mixes historical references with current streetwear pieces making collections that are steeped in the trashy side of the 90s but always softened with a romantic flourish.

Y-project-3
Glen Martens took over the Y/Project, as a menswear brand, from Yohan Serfaty after he sadly passed away. Despite the womenswear line being just four seasons young, it has thrown the spotlight on the Parisian brand – and stylists are obsessed. Everyday essentials like jeans and bomber jackets are souped up with poppers, zips and...
