Un recopilado de musica peruana Rockanrolera // Peruvian Rock n' Roll compilation


I've been obsessed with Peru for a long time. Maybe it's because I've met very nice people form there or because I'm in love with their food, their textiles and culture. Maybe it's everything. Since we're still celebrating the sun (I wish I could here in NY) I decided to bring you some cool obscure tracks from mid '50s - '70s Peru. Nothing much different from what was popular on english-speaking countries, but this time in spanish and sometimes with an african influence. Latin America wasn't and isn't all about cumbia, andean, bachata, la cucaracha and tropical music. It's much much more.

Peru had the best rock scene from the subcontinent between mid '60s and mid '70s becoming pioneers of Rock-n-Roll music in Latin America. Peruvians made beats and rock n' roll in the most brutal and tough possible way predicting this way the birth of punk. They played instrumental rock, and brought surf to their landscape. Psychedelic & garage where part of this peruvian splendor as well. Some of them preferred to keep their loyalty of the new sounds by singing in english while others gave it a new twist by brining spanish lyrics to life, creating a refreshing sound never heard before in Latin America. 

Hope you like it :)

✦ Gypset ✦

Australia is on fire with fashion and all the amazing boho vibe they're pulling out. This time, all the spotlight's on Camilla Franks, better known as the "kaftan queen". This "Gypset" collection is from spring/ summer 2012 but is timeless. I'm in love with the fabric design, vibrant colors and the simple drapery. I feel I could wear all of these pieces in the daytime, put on some heels, and be ready for the night. Check out her website and if you're in the US just dream about it because she only ships to Australia.

Stay Weird

"Being "weird" by the norm of normal society is a work of art. Stay weird, wonderful souls." 
- Unknown

In the spirit of our latest lookbook, I want to share this kick-ass collage artist work. All this trippy artwork is from a very talented girl called Ruth Crone Foster. She's a danish based creative soul and loves details, as well as me. Like an acid trip gone wild.

Check all her work on her website

Metal Stoned

We're used to seeing amethysts and quartz on jewelry & decor (At least I am), but rarely on a purse! One day while lost on the infinite world of Pinterest I found an image of a random purse (the first one), then a really nice girl called Kelsey Hartle gave me some useful info which I'll share right now with you...

All these bags are from a brand called "Copa Collection". They were a brazilian brand in the '70s that fashioned all of their bags / jewelry / accoutrements with a brutalist metal element. The majority of each item made had various raw stones adhered and each item was essentially one of a kind as they were not machine nor mass produced.

I'm loving the contrast of textures and materials. These pieces remind me of medieval warriors with all their leather and roughness.  I feel this is the kind of bag Daenerys Targaryen (Princess Khaleesi) from Game of Thrones would wear.  What do you think she'd carry in her bag? Dragon treats, perhaps. 

Follow us on Pinterest, that's our little space to save share what inspires us.

Thanks Kelsey for the enlightenment ;)
