GUEST BLOGGER SERIES Q&A: PHIL OH OF STREET PEEPER
Tell me about the Fall 12 Helmut Lang / HELMUT essentials you selected.
Uhh I picked them because they looked cool and I love color and print, so I was immediately drawn to the midnight floral print leggings and jacket. It’s fun and still feels like Helmut Lang. The Mixed Media Dress was a stand-out at the show, and I was excited to see the runway piece had actually gone into production and was hanging on the showroom rack.
What’s your Jam of the moment?
I’ve been revisiting my Jam of the late 00’s, The MFA’s “The Difference it Makes” (Superpitcher Remix)
Your all time favorite cult-film is ____
What’s the last great art show you’ve seen?
I loved the Francesca Woodman exhibition at the Guggenheim, and I really like most of the shows I’ve seen at 47 Canal gallery.
Best meal you’ve ever had was at _____
Rafa’s. It’s a simple seafood grill in Roses, Spain. It’s a town more famous for El Bulli, but I actually would prefer to return for a second helping of their baby squid, clams, red shrimp, white tuna, and a bottle of cava.
What music festival/ concert are you most looking forward to this summer?
Outside Lands festival in San Francisco. I’d basically go just to see Stevie Wonder and Grandaddy. Grandaddy was one of my favorite bands of the early 00’s, and is doing a mini comeback-tour on the West Coast. I love how it’s kinda cold in SF during August.
Reading any books you can’t put down?
I just finished a book called “Ready Player One” by Ernest Cline. It’s a super-geeky sci-fi novel about a post-apocalyptic world where everyone lives in a virtual reality world obsessed with 80s pop culture, but mostly about video games.
Tell us about your “ah-ha” moment that made you start blogging.
I figured it would be something to do to pass the time? I actually debated whether to even start a street-style blog since there was already TWO others I knew of at the time (The Sartorialist and Hel-Looks)
Favorite coffee table book you own is _____
The Eleven Madison Park cookbook. Not that I could ever recreate any of their dishes…
Have any summer getaways planned?
Does Paris for the menswear and couture shows count? I guess that’s work though, so hmmm, maybe not. I try to stay home and do nothing during the summer, but I need to get a new air conditioner first.
Your vice is ______
Airlines Miles and Miller High Life
