counterculture you can wear

THE YEAR WAS 1995. I was in middle school. The Grateful Dead were coming to Atlanta, and I was a lock to see them, thanks to my best friend, Ben, and his generous Deadhead father’s tickets. Then disaster: Ben called an audible and invited his new girl-friend, Lucy, to the show instead. All I got was heartbreak—and the T-shirt above. Five months later, Jerry Garcia was gone.To be fair, it’s a great shirt. Skeletons enacting scenes from Mark Twain. It’s faded and frayed now—better than ever. I can’t tell you how many hours I’ve since spent—first in head shops, then on eBay—collecting Dead merch like it. Maybe I buy all this stuff out of genuine passion, or maybe I’m compensating for the fact that I never saw the Grateful Dead…

everywhere man

“WELL, I’M WATCHING all these sheep walk by,” Caleb Landry Jones is saying, “and I’m thinking, I don’t know if they got it more figured out or less figured out. They seem all right. But unlike the geese, they can’t fly away. And the geese can fly away. I think they just don’t know that they can.”It’s a Tuesday, just after the New Year, and Jones is calling from Texas, where he grew up. Talking to him over a spotty cell-phone connection is a cosmic, enjoyably disorienting experience. His sentences spin out into riffs, one-man dialogues featuring drawling impressions of his piano-teacher mom or his contractor dad, Boomhauer-esque verbal vapor trails. Right now he’s doing his best to answer questions about the craft of acting, about balancing preparation and instinct,…

2. Risso wants Marni to stand out because of its signature playfulness. “Logo mania,” he declares, “is over.”3. After he has designed a collection, there is no color, print, or pattern left in Risso’s toolbox.4. Jonah Hill is one of the brand’s many high-profile fans. The love is mutual. “He’s the perfect person to enjoy Marni,” Risso says.WHEN MARNI CREATIVE DIRECTOR Francesco Risso was growing up, he would raid his parents’ and siblings’ closets like a mad scientist in search of parts. His sister would go out and return home to find jackets with sleeves lopped off or a skirt sprouting pant legs. His habit “tragically created dramas,” he laments over the phone from Milan, and earned him the nickname the Virus of the Wardrobe. Risso just wanted to express…

martine rose

2. The Nike x Martine Rose collab made an already polarizing sneaker (the Air Monarch) even more so—and it was an instant hit.3. Martine Rose began as a shirting brand. Rose adapted the logo, which appears on the chest of each shirt, from a signature she found on a vintage-army-jacket tag.4. The spring-summer 2019 collection showcases flamboyant, gloriously clashing patterns.FOR HER SPRING-SUMMER 2019 show, Martine Rose skipped the Fashion Week runways and instead staged her show on a sleepy cul-de-sac in northwest London, where neighbors mingled on the sidewalk with the international fashion corps while models clomped about in square-toe loafers embellished with sleazy gold chains. As designers appropriate the anti-fashion of the ’80s and ’90s, the sworn-off angular shoes have made a semi-ironic comeback in menswear. But nobody makes…

cav empt

2. Cav Empt emerged from the soup of pure street culture, but before Bape, Toby Feltwell was a music A&R for Mo’ Wax and XL Recordings and studied law.3. SK8THING suggested the name Cav Empt after reading a Philip K. Dick book in which a character had a caveat emptor tattoo.WHEN CAV EMPT was born, in 2011, it was not a bolt of lightning but rather an earthquake that struck Toby Feltwell and his fellow founding partners, the designer known as SK8THING and Hishiyama Yutaka. Quite a large one. Nuclear reactors were shut down, and much of Tokyo, a city of endless, dazzling light, went dark. The result was eye-opening. “You end up in the same place,” Feltwell recalls, “but you see it immediately very differently.”Feltwell and SK8THING were nearing…
