SXSW is right around the corner, which means Austin is going to explode with sound, energy, and creativity. There’ll be the usual movie premieres and tech panels and concerts galore, but this year marks the first time the fashion world will be getting the South By treatment. SXStyle will explore the intersection of fashion, art, culture, and technology-- think wearable tech, 3D printing, the future of retail and more. And of course, no SXSW would be complete without a few parties from us here at NYLON.
We’ll be celebrating the end of SXStyle and the kick-off to Music on March 17, as hosts of the official closing party at Palm Door on Sabine. In partnership with Original Penguin, the event will feature a live performance by Swedish dance-rap chameleon Elliphant, as well as supergroup Summer Moon, which features members of The Strokes, Au Revoir Simone and our girl Tennesee Thomas. DJ sets by The Knocks, Mia Moretti, and Kaneholler should keep the dancefloor packed until late.
Then, on March 19 and 20, when SXSW is in full gear, we’ll be setting up shop at the The Terrace at the W Hotel, for a two-day event featuring Cody Simpson, The Prettiots, Tei Shi, Bully and more! We'll be interviewing all the performers and getting them hooked-up with swag from our partners Original Penguin, PAX, Flash Tattoos, WeTransfer, Gibson, and Connect.
