Ladies and Gentlemen, The Zit Remedy!

Here's a digital drawing our resident illustrator made in middle school using the old Paint program. Remember how amazing that program was back in the day and how the spray paint option was the coolest thing ever?

Miu Miu Spring/Summer 2010 vs. Nudie Suits

Back in the day, singing cowboys wore suits covered in rhinestones and embroidery made by tailor Nudie Cohn. These dazzling suits were coined "Nudie Suits" and were often seen on musicians such as Gram Parsons, Porter Wagoner, Keith Richards, and Jimmy Page.

Miu Miu's Spring/ Summer 2010 collection also looks something like a Nudie suit.

Gram Parsons of the Flying Burrito Brothers arguably had the best suit of bunch which featured marijuana leaves, pills, poppies and naked ladies on a white asymmetrical biker jacket inspired suit.
