It's art, baby girl


Grace Miceli AKA @artbabygirl's shop stemmed from her desire to escape the realms of social media and make both accessible and wearable art. The motifs plastered across her merch are charmingly amateurish, like teenage classroom doodles with a witty political edge. Check out some of her felt-tip fashions + shop like your life depends on it here.




 









Miceli also owns Art Baby Gallery, the online space that hosts virtual gems like 'Girls At Night On The Internet' (featuring fellow art gods Petra Collins, Arvida Byström and Molly Soda). 10/10 would recommend.

People suck + Aoi Itoh is peachy as fuck

Today I am tired of watching people abandon one another for the sake of their own national pride, so I've decided to retreat into my rainbow cave and watch Bob's Burgers. But I did find something nice today; the insta-snaps of @aoitoh. There's a pure honesty to her photos, as if every one was taken on the spur of the moment; and I think this is why I love them.

The sickly-sweet macabre of Kristen Liu-Wong

Cabin In The Woods

Kristen Liu-Wong creates beautifully unnerving portrayals of sex and violence, where women with snake-like tongues dominate dreamscapes of candy-coloured gradients. Each piece is almost like an ancient tapestry adjusted to portray modern culture, confronting our obsessions with serial killers, sad girls and big guns. Somehow managing to portray sex without being crude or overly-erotic, the playfulness in Liu-Wong's style suggests that her subjects shouldn't be taken too seriously.

Also, overflowing trash has never been so aesthetically pleasing.

Charlotte Lewis + Sisterhood

all images collaged together from charlottelewiscreate.tumblr.com

Throwback to graduate fashion week SS15... Sisterhood is Powerful

If Dolores Haze were to kick Humbert's ass, steal his money and run away to kitschy suburbia, this is what I hope she would grow up to look like. For Charlotte Lewis's graduate collection, gingham and 70s erotica were paired perfectly with fluffy heels, daisies and blood red lipstick. Inspired by the desire to feel feminine without the objectification of the male gaze, Charlotte Lewis's sisterhood is taking back the overt sexuality of page 3 pin-ups for re-appropriation, making it symbolic of the unstoppable power we have over our own bodies. Note the embroidered pin-up girls and miniature pansy detailing for extra feminine symbolism <3

There are very few things I would not do to own this jacket.
