The brand Pintrill, out of Brooklyn, NY, answers the question: What if you took the collectible world of pin culture, and speared it through your phone and into your text messages?
Jordan Roschwalb started Pintrill in April 2014 with his girlfriend Doni Gitlin and homie Andrew Yung. He talked to us on the phone about the communal power of pins and future possibilities for the Oxford English Dictionary.
After speaking with him, we’re even more certain that these pins will get you noticed at a music festival or on the street. And maybe bartered with.
The LA Times is on the same insider-access wavelength; they just interviewed Nordstrom’s director of creative projects and Pop-In curator Olivia Kim about her latest shoppable microcosm,Magic Hour, and then they asked her to point to Seattle’s best tofu bowl and vintage finds. Which she was, of course, happy to do.
It’s the first day of spring and only hours until the weekend starts–two pretty good reasons to get up and dance. Here’s another–Risky Business, Grease, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Bring It On and scenes from 84 other movies with one thing in common: getting down.
Here we have a little behind-the-scenes action from the photo shoot for Magic Hour, our new Pop-In@Nordstrom. For the uninitiated, Pop-Ins are recurring boutiques curated by our director of creative projects, Olivia Kim, which exist in select physical Nordstrom locations and, of course, online.
Magic Hour refers to the time at a music festival when the sun sets and tame gives way to turnt. Snapshots and a detailed statement from Olivia below.
Who can go from sharp sport-chic to sheer florals within the space of a runway show? In other words, what’s spring fashion’s version of zero to 60? Topshop Unique.
In a spring ’15 presentation that started and ended with the darling Ms. Delevingne, the Brits managed to rev up with racing stripes, performance details and a color mix of primary tones, baby blue and deep, rich wine. Adding a ruffle here and a ruffle there—and a measure of au natural abstraction along the way—they rounded the corner right into nighttime sheers and racy lace.
Check out our highlight reel—make that highlight GIF—presented today in celebration of our edit on all this, which is available now at Nordstrom.
In a series we call “It’s Personal” we talk to artists and designers about their personal work and the projects that are closest to their hearts.

The first thing you need to know about photographers Joel Leshefka and Krysta Jabczenski is either a) that they are a deadly good-looking couple, b) that it’s okay to be intimidated by their combined talent or c) how to pronounce their last names. It all depends on the context.
Let’s start, instead, with what’s at hand today: their images of the stunning otherworld that is Los Angeles’s J. Paul Getty Museum and an interview to go along with them.
“La BBQ is one of the best spots for BBQ in Austin, and what’s great about La BBQ during SXSW is that there’s live music there. La BBQ rivals Franklin’s for best BBQ in the city. They serve BBQ out of a truck until they run out. There is another truck called the Blue Ox which is a bit more under the radar but also very good…it’s in the back of a bar called the Buzzmill. But for SXSW + BBQ: La BBQ is the jam.”
Indeed: Men are from Mars and women are from Venus—or whatever all that hoopla was about. Bottom line: Dating can be weird. Your outfit doesn’t have to be—unless, of course, that’s the look you’re going for. Our friends at Topshop put this V Day vid together to inspire all kinds of creative solutions. Enjoy!
