This is music for night time, but Sky’s album sure helps me get ready in the morning, (a time I loathe, especially in winter). It makes me feel as if I just had a great night on the Lower East Side and that an iced coffee from Dunkin’ Donuts is just a hop, skip, and jump-away before I go to a Saint Laurent photo shoot in my musty sequin blazer from Edith Machinest.*
I listened to the album in full (here) which convinced me to buy it. It’s a package full of angst, guitars, and digital sequins. I’m convinced that Sky is the musical soul- child of Debbie Harry and Michael Jackson.
Pictured here, is a fantastic editorial from Dazed & Confused (Korea), influenced by Sky’s style: messy makeup and *expensive! expensive! grunge!
*FICTION/BS I wish were true!
**I’m sure Sky shops at thrift shops. But as somebody who thrifted for grunge in the 1990s, it can be a dirty and depressing task. I hold no judgement for those who rather go to Dover Street Market or Topshop for neo-grunge.

Visiting my father's house is like going back in time and suddenly I'm a teen dreamer again. The funny thing is, I always thought it was a certain time of life that made me such a dreamer, but it really is the feeling I find in this little house in Milton, Pennsylvania. It is not fancy. My father (the gentleman in the first photograph) lives alone, and we all know men live! But it's the type of place where you can just relax, grab a bag of chips and watch films like Pulp Fiction or Me, Myself & Irene or spend three hours reading the latest issues of every fashion magazine available at CVS. Certain people and places allow you to imagine and dream in a way that is truly honest. At the end of the day, we all want to be in a place and around people where we can be ourselves.
