If you haven’t already heard of or seen artist Curtis Kulig‘s work now is the time. He’s been on his grind doing various art projects anywhere from graffiti to gallery shows, primarily around LA and NYC for over 7 years. Having already collaborated with high profile brands like Nike, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, Burton, and Converse Kulig is now onto his next big artistic endeavor. This spring, the long time friend of Shepard Fairey has created a lovely new collection for Obey with his signature “love me” tag seen on each piece. This exciting new collab is definitely worth checking out: tank, jacket, tee, and cardigan. The limited series is moving quick, so don’t sleep on including these pieces in your wardrobe before Curtis blows up bigtime.
I have never really understood the need to deck kids out in designer duds. I mean, kids grow something like 2.5 inches a year, so unless you’re planning on having a gaggle of children (hand me downs, anyone?) it doesn’t seem like you’ll be getting much bang for your buck. On top of that, kids are messy. I’m pretty sure that when I was one, I spilled juice down my shirt at every other meal. And it was fine, because all my clothes came from Marshall’s and were made out of the type of durable material that could survive a recess apocalypse. So as you can imagine, I was pretty sure my children’s future “style” would be similar to my childhood of overalls and Velcro shoes. That is, until I saw Children With Swag, a Tumblr that thrives off of parents’ photo submissions of their swagged out kids. Bow ties and suspenders, rocker denim vests and dark shades – who knew clothes looked even better in miniature?
Spotted on runways from here to Timbuktu, pastels give a welcome lightness to our spring wardrobes. Spearmint and cotton candy pinks are taking over, bringing sweetness to our lives. Here are some of our favorite sugary pieces…

Teyana Taylor is making herself known in the world of hip-hop. The Harlem native is rapping about her love for the bad boys in her latest track, aptly titled “Bad Boys,” featuring Honey Cocaine and B. Mack and produced by DJ Mustard, who is responsible for Tyga’s “Rack City.”
After years of being plagued by label politics the young singer, rapper, and actress is putting out her dope grooves as a free agent, hoping to satisfy her fans. In the meantime, she has also appeared on Kanye West’s album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and toured with Game.
So far this year, she dropped her new soulful single “Make Your Move” featuring Wale. Live instrumentation and Michael Jackson sampling give the R&B track an edge. Her second single, “DUI” drops today,Valentine’s Day. It’s all ahead of her upcoming free EP, The Misunderstanding of Teyana Taylor (available online February 29).
KarmaloopTV recently sat down with Miss Taylor to talk about her new record with Wale, her record label situation, and haters on Twitter. Check the clip above.
The nation was shocked when superstar Whitney Houston passed away in her hotel room at the Beverly Hilton late Saturday night, just hours before she was supposed to attend a pre-Grammy party. She was 48.
Houston’s known for her stellar singing voice and pop star attitude that brought her to the top of the charts in the 1980’s. Despite recent drug issues, Houston always portrayed herself as a lady of elegance with a keen fashion sense, and what we love, is fashion.
Here is an ultimate 80’s fashion throwback. Whitney pulls out all the great looks — the conservative woman’s suit, the bomber jacket and high-waisted jeans combo, her tight and bright orange single-sleeve dress in her 1987 music video “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.”
Rock that jean jacket, candy colored eyeshadow and big hair like Whitney did. Even if you’re not into her style, there’s no denying that homegirl had some moves.
Bustiers, leather fringe, ripped denim, and maxi skirts, all done in sun-baked, earthy hues like ochre and rust, make up the majority of Evil Twin‘s new S/S ’12 lookbook. The overall feel can only truly be captured by a weekend at Coachella (or a slightly more gothic Woodstock), but we think the Aussie brand is as close as you can get to a sun-beaten desert without booking a plane ticket to California.
With names like the “Joplin” and “Brown Sugar,” Evil Twin isn’t trying to hide where their inspiration comes from. Think rocker meets hippie meets cowgirl, and anything that would help you get in touch with your wild side. If you need further explanation, we can put it in clearer music terms for you – they’ve dubbed the lookbook “Black Magic Woman,” after the 1968 bluesy rock single from none other than Fleetwood Mac.
