*KILL CITY denim patch vest (available this Fall), LIP SERVICE / CULT screen-printed tank (available this Fall), Vagabond boots from Madeline, vintage Harley Davidson dog collar from Etsy.
the more i work with Kill City, the more i respect/support them and want to help spread the word about their radness. Drew, the owner, is a rare breed who's top priority is to be different and authentic... which as you know, i'm a huge fucking advocate of. he's been running this company since the 80's and has infinite knowledge and taste to prove it. i feel really lucky to be around someone so real and down to earth (he duct tapes his boots together when they fall apart instead of buying a new pair, that's some real shit) in this industry, because that honestly does not happen very often.
Kali, my ridiculously talented friend who is now the part of the Kill City team in charge of creative direction for all photo shoots, let me take a huge garment bag full of new pieces from Kill City and Lip Service to style with on my, Madeline's, and Sea's blog. Madeline posted her first look a few hours ago, and it's so good i can hardly stand it. her write-up is a must read, so check it out here if you haven't already.
i'm styling the Cult division of Lip Service's (Kill City and Lip Service are both owned by Drew and ran out of the same warehouse) lookbook and product shots this week, and can't wait to show you guys some of this stuff.
for any fellow vegans out there, Lip Service uses a TON of vinyl and faux leathers, which is literally a dream come true. i posted a photo on my instagram of a pair of black sparkly vinyl high-waisted Lip Service shorts that i tried on last week and nearly ran out of the warehouse with, never to return. they are (seriously) the most perfect things i've ever put on, and the fact that they are vegan just blows my mind. they'll be available early next year, and trust me when i say i will be the waiting to purchase them with bated breath until then. i mean, just look at them.
alright, if you read all of that, you're amazing. i've been holding in all of this gushing until i did this post. Mad, Sea, and I will be posting more looks tomorrow and Wednesday, so check back if you're interested in seeing more new shit from Kill City/Lip Service.
you can also like them on facebook here & here, follow them on twitter here & here, and follow them on instagram here.
until then, i'll leave you with a teaser from the Kill City lookbook that Madeline and I styled in the desert a few weeks back! is there anything more perfect than motorcycles and babes in the desert? i don't think so.
