The Inspiration: Guitar Playing in NYLON Japan
All my favorite things in one place: big fuzzy coats, American flags, and relaxing in bed.
The Face: NYLON Issue One, 1999
NYLON's first issue is a literal gem. With Liv Tyler on the cover and an interview with The Beastie Boys inside, it's content is nostalgia brought to life. The bare-faced beauty of this photo, too, is hauntingly gorgeous. If only the same beauty products used to get this look in '99 were still around today.
The Song: "Barcelona" - The Plasticines
The Plasticines were the first band signed to NYLON Records, and this video directed by our former Editor-in-Chief Marvin Scott Jarrett is the raddest way to throwback to NYLON's awesome days. Things are changing around here, but I think if we keep the free-spirited vibe we've had since day one, everything will be OK.
