Inspiration LA: JJ Wessels – Matix Ambassador A conversation over musty vintage clothes? 'But I Like it!"

Gabe Clement and JJ with the "Inspiration LA" one-off tee that was printed during the event.

SWELL: Hey JJ, thanks for taking some time to talk to us. “Inspiration LA” is pretty awesome and somewhat overwhelming for me, It’s my first year at the event. Have you been to the event before this year? How has your experience been so far?

JJ: I’ve been coming to the event since it started really, I was invited by Rin Tanaka. One of my friends, Brian Bent, was featured in a book that Rin published, and I think thats how I met him. It’s been the best event so far, definitely the best turnout. It’s something I wouldn’t miss. it’s something where I’m like “Inspiration is coming up! when is it? where is it?” type thing. (more…)

Watch It: Disfire

Just add edge…and crochet.
It’s no surprise that for the release of Issue 3, What Youth turned to Beach Riot designer, Nicole Hanriot, to style their latest short flick. Filled with a classic rock & roll spirit, and Gen X “disappear here” undertones, the style reflects the live fast, dye bold attitude of Nicole’s collection.

Haven’t seen it? Check out Beach Riot on SWELL.
