Meanwhile, Michelle Rodriguez and Cara Delevingne reportedly jet off to Coachella, because obviously.
While it certainly won't be the same Lula we've grown to love over the years, these two bring an impressive degree of experience to the helm.
The Fourth of July is about more than just barbecues, fireworks and baseball games. It's about independence! Beating the system, forging your own path, etc., etc. So we thought, what better time to highlight some of our favorite independent fashion magazines who are doing just that.
Yes, you read that correctly. International Cat Day is a thing and it's today.
We love Lula almost as much as we love Elle Fanning, so we're starting to get a little jealous of Tavi getting to meet and interview all of our favorite people at the age of 15, but what can you do? Anyway, Tavi had high tea with stylist and Lula editor-in-chief Leith Clark in a suite at the Pierre Hotel in New York and the highlights of their conversation have just been published on NOWNESS. They sat in "fluffy marshmallow beds" and talked for an hour and a half about how Lula has inspired Tavi, why Tavi started her blog, and why she's nostalgic for things she's too young to have experienced. Even more of their convo, which maybe wasn't "serious" enough for NOWNESS, is on the site's Facebook page, where they talk about remakes of '80s movies and Zac Efron. Tavi also bring up her best friends Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld. Here are the best things we learned: The first issue of Lula was kind of an accident:
I have a new obsession. Orla Kiely’s namesake ready-to-wear line seems to have shamefully few fans in the US, though I can’t imagine that will be the case for much longer. The label seems to have a strong following in the UK where it is based, made evident by the Brit-heavy crowd at Tuesday night's party for the designer at the Ace Hotel's Liberty Hall, which included The Like's Tennessee Thomas, Giles Deacon and soon-to-be divorcée Karen Elson. (P.S. a little birdy told us that "divorce party" didn't actually happen.)more
It's Sunday, and raining very hard here in New York. We suggest spending the day reading the latest issue of Lula, guest-edited by Rodarte's Kate and Laura Mulleavy. If you can't get to the newsstand just now, at least take this questionnaire, dreamed up by the sisters years ago when Kate's best friend Autumn "started dating a new new guy that I thought we should know more about." In Lula, everyone from Cindy Sherman to Jason Schwartzman succumbed. Here's your chance:
To celebrate 5 Years of Lula's editor in chief Leith Clark has collaborated with Harvey Nichols on a pop-up curated by the magazine and designed by set designer Fiona Leahy. Apparently Clark is turning the 4th floor of Harvey Nichols, which she calls, "the only store you need to visit in London. British style heaven," into a wonderland of her favorite things. With products created especially for pop-up from the likes of Rodarte, Erdem, Lover, Miu Miu, Charles Anastase, Rachel Antonoff, and Sonia Rykiel; and books and music from her friends, i.e. Liz Goldwyn, Melissa Auf Der Maur, Derek Blasberg, Daisy de Villeneuve and Karen Elson, it sounds like her favorite things and our favorite things have a lot in common.
