Style Elation: Turning to Fashion

Our sundial always points in the direction of art, cinema, and music: a hydra of ideas that are vital to community. We see ourselves as opponents of vacuity, gratuitous self-indulgence, and glib negativity – even if we just used a string of pompous words that say otherwise. We’re champions of lampooning the norm. Cinema Spartan gets weird, and grinds on the rails of independently strange action points.

We like it that way.

In August we’ll be launching a new section to the site, simply called “Style”. We’ll be talking pop culture and fashion. You can expect articles like “Why Is Ezra Koenig Wearing a V-Neck at Bonnaroo?”, “What Undercut Best Fits Your Look”, and “What Outfits You Should Wear at a Concert”- maybe even none of these. The topics will be relevant, funny, and thoughtful. We’re going to touch on abstract subjects, and bend your ear about tips you should know.

The lead columnist of that section will be Laura Pendergraft, a superb hairstylist, rock climber, and Twitter icon. Because her fashion compass is a divining rod of inimitable radness, we knew that she would be perfect to spearhead this new segment. In fact, it couldn’t have worked without her. She not only brings honesty and an uncompromising sense of style, but she works with incredible levity and awareness. Laura is the real deal.

We hope you are excited – and a little bit confused – about our news. That we caught you off-guard. And that you’re looking forward to hearing, and seeing, more from our team in August. In the interim, you can get to know Laura better with this interview we did with her earlier this year.

And, yes, we will still be covering music, movies, and comics.
