In large, anonymous cities there are moments when being open to an unexpected stranger promises an encounter that’s routinely brief, largely banal and occasionally unforgettable. Rachel was one of those fortunate meetings that we have all too rarely but that linger with us for longer than we expect. It was a lazy Sunday afternoon and we crossed paths at the MoMA PS1 in Queens, NY. It’s hard to explain what lured us to her; it could have been her flourishing yet holed-up sweatshirt or perhaps her vibrant choice of lipstick, which contended well with Maria Lassnig’s intensely hued artwork. Only lasting a handful of minutes, our bracing interaction with Rachel was like a vivid blur. Soon after, she excused herself, explaining that she should hurry back to her studio, where she planned to use that day’s museum stimulation to work on some new designs for her lingerie label. (photo by Xavier Aaronson)

Samantha Giordano is a NY-based designer and founder of the freshly launched women’s label Dolores Haze. Her prep-school meets garage-grunge style caught our radar while she walked past a piece by Emily Noelle Lambert at the Lu Magnus gallery in New York’s Lower East Side.  What we liked about her casual demeanor and cute frock was that neither were screaming for attention and yet they both made us come to a full, slack-jawed tire screech halt. When not modeling her designs for gallery-goers, the Columbia and Parsons grad is hustling between her home in Chinatown, sketching in her studio in Bushwick, meeting with seamstresses in Manhattan’s garment district, and sourcing fabrics in London’s garment district.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Pari is kind of like our muse.  On her own blog, she’s taken the intersection between fashion and art to another level by putting her own stunning twist to dressing for the arts.

Pari pairs her style with the exhibition she plans on visiting. Last weekend, we stretched our own rules that narrow down who we babe’out with. Instead of bumping into some art-gawking style maven by chance encounter, Pari and I actually scheduled a rendezvous at the MoMA PS1. 

I’m not proud of our code-breaking orchestration but sometimes you gotta bend the law for an opportunity to achieve something exquisite. And in this case, Pari is too ill for the law.

At the heart of the Rose Center for Earth and Space in the American Museum of Natural History is a babe with a crepuscular style that beams like a ray of light. Her name is Tara. During our visit, she tried to sneak into the Planetarium but was unsuccessful because museum guards take their jobs very seriously (and bless their sweet hearts for doing so.) Instead, the closet cosmologist, decked out all in black, let us take some quick pics of her walking along the spiraling pathway that surrounds the astro theater dome.

When Tara’s satisfied her cravings for astrophysics, she’s spends her talents making music and flexing her pipes. She’s one half of Brooklyn electronic-pop duo Soft Lit and also a member of the party fun disco dance ensemble Motion Studies. Her latest jam is called “Ocean King” and it’s just one of the many excellent songs coming out of the kaleidoscopic label GODMODE.

And if you haven’t heard of Motion Studies, then I urge you to correct that deficit and to check them out live on Wed, April 9th at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn. (photos by Sam Deitch)

Simplicity always wins.  After a brief tour of the Free Wheel bicycle exhibition at the Holon Design Museum, the sprightly Anaël comes gunnin’ straight for us camera with her perfectly paired getup.  The beautiful bending architecture you see in the background is  a creation by museum designer Ron Arad. Here’s to a sublime start to the Spring. (photo by Sarah Peguine)

Style is much like a sword that is sharpened over time. Marlene was a charming staff member who had the most elegant touches we’ve ever seen at the Guggenheim. Here she is photographed during her shift, lookin’ straight gorgey. (photos by Xavier Aaronson)

A pink beanie and turquoise high-tops say I’m the art world’s miscreant purveyor of chuckles and flare. Deal with it. When he’s not in his b-boy stance in front of a Richard Serra prow-like sculpture, he’s making tight videos and DJ’ing parties of insubordinate romp. (Photo by Xavier Aaronson)

Winters feel long, but they can come with seasonally acceptable and totally awesome side effects like introspection, gluttony and cuddle fests. But before fully giving into our reflex to hibernate in our crotch-snap onesies, we strolled into 5th Avenue’s rotunda-shaped museum to check out the pattern paintings of Christopher Wool. 

There, we met Alex. She’s a stunning neurobiologist student-cum-creative strategist who, upon our encounter, had the intrigue of a lunar landing. At first, she wasn’t too thrilled to do the whole deadpan, cookie-cutter street style pose—which I totally get, I often doubt my own “creative direction”—so, we started talking about Kandinsky and the throes of winter boogers, and boom, out of nowhere, her relaxed élan came into full photogenic bloom.
