Anyone who frequents street style blogs has, most likely, come across this marvelous pair at least once. I’ve long been an admirer of their personal styles and have, within the past year, become more aware of and enamored by their strong body of work. Sam Lambert and Shaka Maidoh are the brilliant minds behind Art Comes First, a dynamic collective of self-taught creatives and artists.
In their own words, ACF was founded in order to “circulate sartorial nourishment and oxygenating time-based projects through dynamic collaboration with different creatives in their network.” The projects that this collective are involved with are nothing short of stunning; ranging from collaborations with designers from all over the world, to gorgeous designs of their own. ACF has an incredible aesthetic and its founders exude a level of cool that seems almost impossible.

We are only one month into 2013 and I can already say, with quite a bit of confidence, that Toro y Moi’s latest work is going to be at the top of my favorite albums of this year. Anything In Return officially dropped on January 22, although I must admit that I helped myself to the leak back in December. My impatience got the best of me. It is an incredible album, full of delicious beats, amazing lyrics, and Chaz Bundick’s glorious vocals. If you are not familiar with this amazing artist, I urge/beg/command you to listen to this album along with his other two as well (Causers of This is my all time favorite). Below are some of my favorite songs from the latest album as well as the videos for “Say That” & “So Many Details”. Enjoy!
