Krink is practically shorthand for graffiti–the scribbles you see covering walls and street corners are more likely than not with the help of the US-based brand’s markers and inks.
And Marc Jacobs is practically shorthand for cool–just about everything that comes from the designer, be it Marc, Marc by Marc, or Bookmarc, lands immediately on our must-have list.
So when the two join forces? Yeah, we’re pretty stoked. The two are collaborating on a three-piece collection, featuring a K-12 Paint Marker, a K-47 Permanent Ink Marker, and a K-60 Paint Marker. Nothing tops $14, so you can get a little bit of designer without breaking the bank. Breaking the law? Well, all we can say is be careful.

We’ll admit: We had to do a double take when we first saw this photo, because we didn’t believe it was Rita Ora. Red lips? Gone. Done-up hair? Disappeared.
Instead, we have her in what just might be our all-time favorite look from the British musician. Granted, she was out to dinner with her boyfriend, DJ-producer Calvin Harris, in London so there’s a reason she’s glowing, but we also love how fresh her all-white look, punctuated by a boldly colored sweater, looks. No muss, no fuss–and the end result is pretty darn close to spring dressing perfection.
You don’t need the high profile BF to pull it off yourself–just follow along with our picks:
WHY: Because even though there’s nothing we need less than a new striped t-shirt, we insist on collecting as many of them as possible. You never know when you’ll get sick of your other ones or when all 50 of them will be in the wash at the same time! Plus, I doubt you own one quite as French-girl cool as this Joe Fresh one!
“Being a full-time self-employed female musician is no joke. I had a serious ramen noodle $5 a day budget phase–which wasn’t cute,” remembers Tecla, the New York City-based, multi-talented musician (she sings, raps, DJs, and works as a producer). But turns out, all those cheap meals paid off: The experience served as the basis for “Money,” off of her new album We Are The Lucky Ones.
By day, Ian Bradley has outfitted the likes of Azealia Banks and directs editorials for a range of brands, all while spending nights manning the door at The Standard’s rooftop party den, Le Bain. After teaming up with NYLON + DKNY Jeans for a peek into his New York life, Bradley—a stylist and East Village resident–sat down with us and spilled the deets on his go-to neighborhood spots. Read on for both his daytime and nighttime haunts, and that undiscovered neighborhood gem he’s willing to share. --COLLEEN KELSEY
Fans of Crystal Fighters rejoice! The Spanish/English band’s only weeks away from releasing their much anticipated second album, Cave Rave (dropping May 28th).
Written in the Basque hills in under two months, the album succeeds in transcending genres, and showcasing the sheer creative force of the band. And because we know you’re anxious to hear it, we’re premiering a new track of the album exclusively today!
Dubbed “LA Calling,” the song is pretty a mosh pit of good vibes, summer fun–and we can pretty much guarantee you’ll put it on every playlist you make this summer. You’re welcome. -ALI HOFFMAN
On May 13, 1986 Robert Pattinson was born. Today the Twilight star turns 27, but lest we forget what a wild year 26 has been: The TwilightSaga has ended, him and K-Stew are back on after a rough patch, and the British actor has been cast in at least three non-vampire movies this year.
We’d also like to take this time to remind people that we “discovered” Pattinson while touring London for NYLON’s Book of Global Street Style. Happy Birthday, Robert! You can thank us whenever—or right now with an invite to your birthday party tonight.—RAY SIEGEL
All month long we’ve been celebrating our Young Hollywood issue by coming up with a list of very NYLON-Hollywood movies. (We’ve gone from the best films about besties, to our favorite summer camp-centric stories.)
Today we want to know: What is your favorite movie about music?
Can you name every line from Almost Famous? Do you know the lyrics to “That Thing You Do”? Was A Hard Day’s Night your entry into an obsession with The Beatles? Is Gimme Shelter the best documentary of all-time (or maybe you’re partial to Woodstock, or Anvil, or Searching for Sugar Man, or…)? You get the gist–there are a lot of awesome music movies out there, and we want to hear from you which ones you love.
Let us know in the comments section below, and then tomorrow we’ll put our 10 favorites up to a vote to find out which one gets the NYLON stamp of approval. –REBECCA WILLA DAVIS
We know, we know, you don’t need to be reminded to tune in to Arrested Development when it returns on Netflix on May 26.
But that won’t stop us from sharing the trailer for the fourth season, because OMG does it look good.
We’ve got George Michael and Maeby in a potentially awkward situation, Gob being an idiot, Buster being a momma’s boy, and Tobias and Lindsay expressing their love (or should we say “love”) in very, very strange ways. We know where we’ll be come May 26, but how about you? Excited? Freaking out? Feeling like you’re about to be letdown? Let us know in the comments! –REBECCA WILLA DAVIS
