BEHIND THE SCENES: CHASE N. CASHE x BRANTLEY GUTIERREZ

 

 

 

 

You’ll notice something a little different about the March/April Issue of LA CANVAS Magazine: There’s a human on the cover!

Typically, our “Last Look” artist creates the cover art. But we haven’t entirely broken with tradition here. The twist is that we decided to interview a photographer, and then ask him to shoot our featured musician for the cover.

For our story on producer/rapper Chase N. Cashe, we recruited portrait photographer Brantley Gutierrez, who has shot covers for Esquire and GQ and snapped pictures of David Byrne, the Foo Fighters, and Taylor Swift—just to name a few.  It all went down at our studio in Lincoln Heights, where resident photographer Rachel Many was around to capture the magic, the glamour and the drama!

Read the full stories on Chase and Brantley in our E-issue, and scroll through to check out all of Rachel’s behind the scene’s photos.

RECAP: JOYRICH SPRING/SUMMER COLLECTION + DISNEY LINE LAUNCH

Mickey Mouse sporting a chunky gold chain?!  Can it get any better? Our favorite cult brand never disappoints.

Last Friday Joyrich’s S/S ’13 Collection Launch Party was packed with some of LA’s craziest fashionistas (and fashionistos), all present to get a peek at the new lines. The very lovely Joyrich model Jasmine Sanders was present for signing and shmoozing.

Divine Pastry Bar provided the yummy pink & blue camouflage cupcakes, paired with our favorite sweet wine by Stella Rosa.  Joyrich has perfected the art of combining high fashion with street style, a coveted skill that they pull off with a touch of hip-hop swag. From the gold and jewel-detailing on the GIZA Collaboration, to the “High Fashion Advisory – Explicit Content” Label on the Luxury Back street wear,  Joyrich is giving us tons of options this season.
