Galore Exclusive: Obesity & Speed Can’t Lose
OMFG you guys! We’ve got a super special sartorial-slaying Galore exclusive for y’all from our BFF Lyz Olko, the designer and founder (and bonafide badass NYC superstar!) of downtown cult label Obesity & Speed. FYI: Olko’s killer clientele has included A-List rock ‘n’ rollers/every It Girl that matters. You know, like Sleigh Bells front woman Alexis Krauss — who, PS, starred in a past O&S look book and gave major O&S loving by rocking a pink tie dyed v-neck on SNL — in addition to Grimes, Santigold, Lindsay Wixson, Natalia Kills, Sky Ferreira, and the uh-mazing etc. As for today’s exclusive shoot, Dee Dee from Dum Dum Girls rocks the SO GOOD Obesity & Speed Spring/Summer 2013 “Can’t Lose” collection, and looks, duh, all kinds of kick ass awesome while doing so. Loving the red lipstick pout and the bleached bob, girl. Olko tells us that the shoot was inspired by the eeriness of ‘Friday Night Lights,’ suburbia and high school jocks. We approve. Oooh! And let’s discuss those head turning-inducing CLOTHES. *Dead* Lyz, we’d appreciate getting our fashion-y fingers on every single item in every single color/size, pretty punk-y please. kthxbye!
