In 2014, few artists had the kind of success that Aerosyn-Lex Mestrovic saw. In fact, few artists will ever see that kind of success, but the ambitious yet humble Mestrovic only sees his exhibitions as stepping stones onto bigger things. Installations at the Tribeca Grand, EDITION Miami, and the MoMA Armory Event, exhibitions at SCOPE New York and Art Basel, and even collaborations with Public School, Rodarte, and the CFDA were just a few of those stones, which have prompted immense interest in his unique paint style. During his brief return home to New York after a stay in Miami and before he jets off to the TRANOI show in Paris and then SXSW, we caught up with the prolific artist to talk about his influences, fashion, and the future of art.

All you need to do is poke your head through the entrance of Tacombi’s Nolita location, veiled with a heavy embroidered cloth, to see how many people are scrambling to get a slice of the Mexican beach life. Festooned with threads of light and multicolored murals, the entire room revolves around the original Tacombi truck that once traveled up and down the shores of Yucatan selling fresh tacos from its windows. Now anchored in this airy warehouse on Elizabeth Street, the truck remains the most important element of the room, its doors and windows thrown open to cook and serve flavorful, uniquely drafted tacos to Manhattan’s hungry diners. Tacombi is the brainchild of Mexican-born Dario Wolos who, along with head chef Oscar Hernadez and manager Luis Berenbau, seeks to prove how light, fresh and diverse true Mexican cooking can be. We sat down with Oscar and Luis, munching market fish tacos, lime-drenched ceviche and corn esquites as they sung praises of Mexico, 9 am pork belly, and why the taco is taking over.
It is only David and Phillipe Blond that can draw such a crowd of diverse creatures to their namesake show. The royalty of New York were seated front and center, behind them only an army of tastemakers, drag queens, and television personalities. Even Paris Hilton, wearing a turquoise heart corset made her way backstage to pay her dues. The only thing that stood out more than the personalities was the collection. From 18th century symbolism to modern English rebellion, their inspiration runs the gambit. We had a few minutes to chat with the duo backstage about their latest inventions.

There is nothing at the end of a line that's worth waiting for. Harsh a rule as that may seem, waiting is the worst. Standing awkwardly in a restaurant's entryway, shuffling to let people pass, getting hit with the door every time someone enters or leaves, with nothing to do but count the minutes the hostess quoted you until you'll be sat, minutes whose numbers are the world's biggest lie since every hostess blindly makes them up, throwing out a 30 here and tossing a 45 there. And with the insane popularity of brunch in this city, Sunday morning waits are so bad you basically need to eat breakfast beforehand just to tide yourself over. So, the next time you try for one of these go-to brunch spots, don't weather the wait, there are plenty of other places just around the corner.
So, we're getting towards the end of winter (thank goodness), and it’s time to bust out those colors that have been hiding in the back of our closets. We don’t know about you, but the thought of sunny, warmer days and delicate pale colors just makes us grin from ear to ear. But living in cold weather can certainly pose a little bit of a complication when it comes to deciding what to wear in the morning. It’s still freezing outside in the A.M., but it kind of warms up around noon. So, how do you prepare accordingly while letting everyone know you’re SO ready for spring? We’ve got the perfect pieces right here. Take a look…
