eShakti Revisits The Vintage Style of Bonnie and Clyde

by Tracey Paleo, Gia On The Move

459px-Bonnieclyde_fThere has been a longing fascination with Depression Era bank robbers Bonnie Elizabeth Parker  and Clyde Chestnut Barrow. The two outlaws and their gang captured the attention of the Americans people during the “public enemy era” between 1931 and 1934. They later had their reputation revived and cemented in American pop folklore by Arthur Penn’s 1967 film Bonnie and Clyde, which starred Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty. With A&E’s recent (and summarily slammed) TV remake this past week, it’s no surprise that not only are this couple’s antics in the spotlight once again, but their fashions are as well.

eShakti, the premiere online retailer of retro-inspired, customizable apparel, decided to highlight a more charming side of this pair and came up with some interesting pieces that can help you channel the aspiring-actress-turned-criminal  that will make you look simply….shall we say… arresting?  Add a headpiece, rouge those lips, and you’re ready to break hearts!

The KFE collection boasts unique and original pieces in many categories including apparel, accessories and leather goods with an eye on footwear, headwear, electronics and skate decks. Inspired by the brand’s heritage of creating uniquely American collections, it features homegrown collaborations and pieces made in the United States and Europe. At this year’s PROJECT, KFE will be unveiling new tee, hoodie and bag designs. They will also introduce apparel with venue-­‐specific designs available for purchase at the KFE concert houses’ newly created retail spaces.

The Knitting FactoryThis year, the brand is expanding THE KNIT COLLECTION. With a nod—and a wink—to New York’s Metropolitan Transit Authority, the KF Brooklyn Metro Tee, the debut item in the Knitting Factory Entertainment lifestyle collection, brings style, quality and social consciousness together in what looks and feels like a favorite old concert t-­‐shirt. KFE proudly offers this 100% American Made, organic cotton tee with sustainable design and manufacturing from field to printing. This season, KFE has supplemented the Metro Tee with four new SKU’s including “Black Heart Procession;” “Cops;” “Gazer” and Fela (bearing the face of Afrobeat musician Fela Kuti, which KFE launched as a household brand last season. As producers of the eponymous Tony Award-­‐winning Broadway show Fela!, KFE will be displaying items from his collection of album artwork, show graphics and more.

Have You Been To Church?

Rhianna in CHURCHRhianna does it.

So does Gwen Stefani, Halle Berry, Leny Kravitz, Steven Tyler, Diddy, Kanye and Kim.

They retreat to a 5,000 sq. ft. sanctuary, hidden by green vine, on one of the most trafficked streets in Los Angeles, Santa Monica Blvd., off the radar and without any outside view to the public. A buzz is required for entry.  Inside it is a warm refuge.

And there they find the divine…


CHURCHBoutique, hub to the serious shoppers and celebrities who want quality without having to walk into a Barney’s or Maxfield’s, opened to the public in Sept. 2009 as a  creative collaboration by Rodney Burns and David Malvaney, housing exclusive high-end, avant-garde fashion, accessories and jewelry collections from the best emergin designers around the globe. The environment showcases meticulously curated art, sculpture, antiquities and designs from emerging and established artists and designers, with the likes of a permanent installation wall by Retna.  It’s the biggest kept secret in West Hollywood…until now.


Hair Versus Harry Styles

Harry Styles

We still can’t decide what part of Harry Styles caught our attention first.  Was it just the British Invasion Boy Band Teen heartthrob hair mass?  Or was it his being spotted in a super cool Vintage Kiss Inspired Junk Food Tee ($38) outside a local restaurant that made us melt like butter? Bashful -and we love it!
