"People have told me that I’m too loud and crazy and that I need to tone it down, but that’s not who I am.” - B. ÅkerlundYour Style is Your Story and B.’s is our new Closet video live on SLU now. Fall in love & get inspired!
We are extremely excited to present to you the Closet of iconoclast, haute rock ‘n’ roll uber-LA fashion stylist, B. Åkerlund. When we first got to her house, she was putting the finishing touches on her French mime-esque makeup and tying lilacs into her hair. As the cameras started rolling, perched on her favorite couch from her native Sweden and wearing one of her vintage kaftans from her infinite collection, B. explained that her mood for what she was going to wear began with the scent she was feeling when she first woke up. You wouldn’t guess it today, but, as a kid, B. was shy, and it was clothing that allowed her to talk and be present without opening her mouth. To make a long and captivating story of hard work and lack-of-entitlement short, today, the drag queen in a past life has styled everyone from Lady Gaga to Madonna. She’s got lots of inspiring things to say from a lifetime of believing in herself against all odds and happily being called a witch when she picks her twin girls up at school in one of her astoundingly creative ensembles. B. never surrendered being herself to the max, and it has paid off. Your Style is Your Story, and B.’s is live on SLU right now!!!

"As a skater, you don’t want to conform to what someone is telling you to wear or do. Skating is a way to express yourself; it’s a release.” - Erik Ellington live on SLU now in our new Uniforms feature on skaters and their style.
Today, we posted our new Uniform feature on skaters, the wild children of sports. Featured are Erik Ellington, Natural Koncept Skateboards’ Josh Zickert, El Señor New York’s Spencer Fujimoto, and Majors. We’re mesmerized by everything from their authentic style to their fearlessness in breaking their own physical and psychic boundaries over and over again. They are a brotherhood with the zen-like mentality that being an outsider, and falling down and getting back up again is the ultimate liberation. Your Style Is Your Story and theirs is live on SLU now.
