Finally on the blog! Two very special supercool Canadians whom we love, and who (clearly) are very fond of each other.  Tanya Himeji Romero wears glossy black Freeway 405s and Art Director Willo Perron wears tortoise shell (available online soon) Freeway 15s.

Two Words: Big Sur

Karen Kilimnik’s work examines the beauty, romance and glamour of our culture with equal-part starry-eyed wonderment and  brutally honest aspirational longing. Her particular lens is both soft-focus and crystal-clear all at once. We’d like to spend a day seeing the world through her 405s, out her car window.
