Unlikely Style Inspiration: “Roseanne”

I went to the University of Hawaii for a semester during my junior year of college. I had a room with an inexplicably king-sized bed and a panoramic view of the ocean. There was a farmer’s market down the street that sold fresh pineapples and papayas. I ate shaved ice for breakfast and sweet bread for dinner and it was generally just as awesome as it sounds. But you know what some of my best Hawaiian memories consist of?

Remember When Sofia Coppola Designed Clothes?


Here’s a blast from the past—a 1995 interview with Sofia Coppola, back when she was designing her clothing line, Milk Fed. For those of you who don’t remember (or if this was before your time!), Ms. Coppola began Milk Fed in 1994, aiming to design simple, affordable pieces with just enough character. From what we gather now, Milk Fed is sold only in Japan, and it’s unclear whether Coppola still designs it (somehow we doubt this, and unfortunately, we don’t read Japanese). Either way, check out this video for some classic ’90s fashion inspiration that ignores acid wash and goes straight to artsy silhouettes. [YouTube] Keep reading »
