Pressed Juicery | The Chalkboard: Julia Frakes' 13 Favorite Natural Wonders

Hop on over to Pressed Juicerythe Left Coast Juice Heaven—where my they asked me about a few of my favorite healthy places and products this past May for The Chalkboard, their online “magazine study in living well.”

Be sure to hop over to Twin Magazine to read the first of my ongoing “Three Quick Questions with…” guest-edited series for the online component of Twin, the biannual London-based art, fashion, and feminism book. It was a thrill to kick off the series with Kate Foley, buyer for the incomparable retail mecca Opening Ceremony and beholder of both the keenest eye and most enviable job in the industry. While fashion followers may first recognize Kate by her effortless and oft-emulated street style, those who work within the field no doubt also associate Kate with her inspiring warmth and rallying work ethic, routinely regarded as ‘above and beyond the call of duty’ by the fun-loving, innovative and talented team helmed by pioneering retail game-changers, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim.  I am certain that Kate’s nurturing of up-and-coming designers and contributions to today’s most innovative and sought-after collaborations will forever be applauded in fashion history.  In the midst of this hectic Resort 2013 week, Kate and I grabbed a quick coffee and partook in a lighthearted little Q&A in the garden behind Saturdays Surf NYC, just around the corner from the Opening Ceremony Headquarters.  Coupled with her resort buying duties this year, Kate is doubly abuzz in planning Opening Ceremony’s London boutique launch in time for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games and the final logistics underlying all the untold collaborations consonant with such a monumental OC opening.  It was a true thrill to discover a bit about what makes Kate tick, whence her discerning buying prowess and inherent modesty comes (as it were, Brooklyn by way of an active adolescence amidst a picturesque little village in West Sussex, England), and just how the Bearbrick-collector would style a bespoke Diamond Jubilee Twin figurine of the Queen… exclusively in pieces available at Opening Ceremony, of course.

Backyard Bill | Julia Frakes: Pennsylvania

I had the honor of shooting with the brilliant, talented Bill Gentle (also represented by Next) this past May for a Backyard Bill feature, which was just published this week.  

We escaped the city for my home state of Pennsylvania, and even shot a few frames around Hillside Farms—a wonderful nonprofit educational farm that played site to many fond childhood memories and whose original proprietors are dear family friends and former neighbors.  (Check out their community-supported work here!)

A big thanks to Bill for making the schlep out to the country!  I had a ball prowling around PA with you; it’s a true honor to be featured amongst such fascinating folks (and friends!) on your site.
