In her erotically-charged curatorial debut, New York-based model Amy Nicole Hood patners up with her lover, acclaimed photographer & director Jonathan Leder, to publish a 48-page nudie mag celebrating the blurred lines between porn, fashion and art.

Fashion Radar: Band of Martians

A couple weeks back we met with Bonnie of Noe Undergarments for a casual walk through at her Newport Beach showroom, Band of Martians, co-founded by Ally Lopez and Jenna Woodhull. These mega babes rep some of our favorite brands in the biz – including Noe, Acacia Swimwear, First Base,  and Thrills - out of a rad little house on Old Newport Blvd. They greeted us with a cold bottle of Veuve and told us their story… Photos by Jenavieve Belair.

In Focus: TRUFFL

We’re excited to introduce you to TRUFFL, a private members’ community for entrepreneurs, creatives, and thought leaders. The online platform focuses on people’s interests, and the hand-curated events bring together at least two experiences, such as dining, music, art, fashion or film. TRUFFL CEO Raphael Farasat wants you to have “once in a lifetime experiences, often.” Think underground sushi dinners, fancy wines and even throw a Cuban cigar in the mix. The club quickly becoming all the rage in Los Angeles, where people in the community have already started stepping up and creating events themselves. Have a read of the interview below:


Solestruck In Miami: “Sole Sisters” By Carlos Ramos

75,000 international visitors attended the 2013 edition of Art Basel in Miami. This year again, we’ve spent some of the best four days and nights of our lives, rolling with the best crew through this magical town with eyes wide open & sky high heels… and there’s no way we could have done it all on so little sleep without taking some time off to chill and adjust our buckles, so we could better keep going.


Interview Series: Schoph

When he’s not floating down the mountain on his snowboard or drinking beers at the pub with his mates, Schoph is making art. He literally squirrels himself away for months at a time to spark his creative juices, living meagerly in his studio, but happily in the simplicity of his life. He recently collaborated with fellow snowboarder and friend Corey Smith, who we interviewed a while back, along with Gordon Holden for a group show “This Place Is Nowhere” which opens tonight  in LA’s Paul Loya Gallery. If in L.A., it’s definitely worth a gander.


Solestruck Does Art Basel, One Shoe at a Time

Let the Art Basel Miami Beach games begin! Whether you’ve made the voyage for the arts or for the nightlife, there is so much to see in such a short amount of time. We do Basel right by obeying two simple rules; don’t think you can catch everything (invites overload, anyone?,) and make sure you catch up on your sleep before you leave, because you’re in for a ride…

Hotel Tour: Miami’s Delano Beach Club

Life is a race to the sun, and every year without fail you’ll find us in Miami for Art Basel, ready to beat the winter blues and party ’til the break of dawn in the magic city with all the cool kids. It’s too late to book luxury accommodations at this point – most hotels on the strip sell out months before the event – but as you start planning for 2014, you’ll want to check out the images Charis Kirchheimer captured during my bestie’s bachelorette party in the penthouse of the fabulous Delano Beach Club.


Abby Brothers & Brooke Frederick Take New York

Brooke Frederick and Abby Brothers gallivant around NYC with an assortment of Wasteland garments, rolls of film and an adventurous attitude. We’re stoked on Abby’s recent move to the city that never sleeps; check out her exclusive interview on the Wasteland blog.


Interview Series: Kayla Varley

Kayla Varley‘s photography reels you into a spontaneous, but intentional space, where every photograph feels like a poignant moment in her life. This passionate young artist is building up her portfolio at an impressive pace, shooting editorials and campaigns alongside a team of likeminded friends & creatives while traveling around her native state of California.


Art Crush: Rone “Project M” For Strychnin Gallery, Berlin

The most exciting street artists are those who are consistently trying to push boundaries of form and expression. These past couple weeks, Rone has been working in the freezing cold, high above Berlin, on the largest wall he has ever attempted. Painting around windows and balconies in his signature cinematic style, the Melbourne-based street artist delivered three sumptuous renditions of the gorgeous Teresa Oman. The project was curated by Strychnin Gallery.


Hotel Tour: Madonna Inn’s Pick & Shovel Suite #123 (NSFW)

The mayhem continued well after midnight in our equestrian themed Pick & Shovel Suite. With a suitcase full of rad clothes, a couple delicious bottles of One Hope Wine and a camera, we had ourselves one hell of a drunken dress-up dance party. If that wall-to-wall red leather couch could speak it would probably tell you that it hasn’t seen that much fun in a while…


Lookbook Lust: The Dreslyn “Tell Me All The Things You Do”

In the over-saturated world of fashion e-com, The Dreslyn is raising the game. The highly-curated shop founded by ex-Montrealer Brooke Taylor Corcia keeps it real with a focus on style before fashion, offering a true glimpse into the mind of the California fashionista. In time for the colder months, this gorgeous black & white editorial featuring Amanda Hendrick reflects Corcia’s personal style mottos – she wears “a lot of black; I look for pieces that can take me the distance. I’m a big believer in an investment piece. I love a great jacket, leather, things that are more timeless.” Have a look, and get shopping!


Editorial: “Cold Mountain” By Evan Lane & Kayla Varley

Our favorite pair of roadtripping shutterbugs take it to Topanga Canyon with the fab Avery Tharp for a gorgeous new exclusive editorial titled “Cold Mountain.” Have a look!


Rising Star: Alice And The Glass Lake

Brooklyn-based Alice and the Glass Lake is ethereal music for dreamers, the kind of tunes that can switch your mood around and change the story in your head when you’re having a bad day. The gorgeous songstress recently released a fantastic new video shot at Lake George in the Adirondack Mountains for her single “Coming Down,” premiered last week during a private concert in Los Angeles at Space 1520. We  hung out with Alice for a portrait session with L.A. photographer Evan Lane and talked about dreams, inspirations and new chapters.


Art Crush: Mark Rubenstein’s “Gone By Dawn” (NSFW)

In “Gone By Dawn,” a photographic body of work spanning 13 years, Mark Rubenstein introduces his muses; beautiful ingenues caught in a transitional period between the vulnerability of childhood and the power of their future self. The images are moody and surreal, reflecting the shaky, yet exhilarating feeling of being “not a girl, not yet a woman.” The book (limited edition of 100, signed & numbered) has just been released at Colette in Paris and although it hasn’t had its Los Angeles debut, Rubenstein’s already way deep into his next journey. Enjoy our interview and peep all these babes!


Preview: Faith Ann Young’s “Eat Cake” 11/09/13 At The Space 650

“Eat Cake” marks a critical shift for Venice-based photographer Faith-Ann Young from straight documentary style to more stylized Fine Art portraiture. An escapism series inspired by romanticism and magical realism, it depicts eccentric Parisian performance artists, House of Drama, role-playing in a bohemian, velour-covered attic in Paris. Be sure to join us for the exhibition’s preview & opening soirée on Saturday, Nov 9th, 7pm-11 PM at The Space 650, located at 650 Sunset Ave Venice CA.
