Karmaloop Founder Greg Selkoe Launches Wanderset E-Commerce Site

Greg Selkoe, Karmaloop’s founder, has a new e-commerce proposition.
Selkoe has teamed with Wil Eddins, co-owner of Institution 18b in Las Vegas, and Matthew Growney, cofounder of Fabulous Brands who used to work for Karmaloop, to introduce Wanderset, a men’s e-commerce site that’s content heavy and features merchandising from cultural influencers.
This isn’t completely new territory for Selkoe. In 2016, he started Curateurs, a men’s online retail concept highlighting cultural influencers who sold pieces from their closets. In order to better scale the business, Curateurs was folded into LookLive, a site that aggregates pictures of celebrities’ outfits and allows readers to shop for the pieces or more affordable versions via affiliate links.
Selkoe, who had to leave LookLive after being diagnosed with sarcoidosis, which kept him sick for close to a year, said Wanderset operates from a different model. As opposed to offering one-off items from celebrities’ personal collections, Wanderset is a fully stocked e-commerce site that sells merchandise from brands including Android Homme, Carrots, Comme des Garçons, Dead Studios, Del Toro Shoes, En Noir, Gucci Ghost, Lacoste and Mr. Completely.
On Wanderset influencers are called set members and have a set page that features merchandise from their own brands or select pieces from

SPECIAL DISCOUNT UPDATE:


Greg Lauren, Banana Republic Partner for Made in L.A. Men’s Collection

Banana Republic is following Greg Lauren down the path of artisanally crafted, domestically sewn fashion for its new men’s collaboration.
Lauren, who’s known for designing clothes that meld Old World tailoring with resourcefulness in incorporating vintage fabrics at his namesake Los Angeles-based label, is offering 16 pieces that have undergone multiple washings and hand-done techniques in local factories. In a partnership with the Council of Fashion Designers of America, Gap Inc.’s Banana Republic is embarking on the new capsule collection to follow a women’s project designed with Timo Weiland last March.
“We want to challenge our customers, the ones that are forward thinking,” said Michael Anderson, the retailer’s senior vice president of design. Having observed Lauren’s emergence in the industry, he added, “What really interested me in him is: His reference points in his collection are very similar to our reference points.”
Fond of whimsical details, such as inserting a red whipstitch on a denim jacket as it’s being slipped into a box for shipping, Lauren recalled that his initial response to the CFDA’s proposition from Banana Republic was: “Wow — that’s interesting. Are you sure they really want to work with me?”
Banana Republic did. Hoping to reverse a 10 percent drop in

Jon Swihart’s Instagram “Selfies” of Greg Escalante Are Hilarious

2015-10-15-1444913012-1226731-Ohthehumanityselfie.jpg

Selfie at the Hindenburg Disaster

Two years ago, as part of his preparation for painting an oil portrait of art dealer Greg Escalante, artist Jon Swihart took some photos of his subject: LOTS of them. “The session went on for two hours,” Escalante recalls, “and near the end I started goofing off.” Swihart came away from the shoot with dozens of digital images of Escalante including some in which Escalante mocked his own vanity by taking selfies. “Greg loves to laugh,” Swihart recounts, “and the whole thing was really just a lot of fun.” When it was all over, Escalante didn’t give the photos a second thought: “I just forgot about them.” he states.

The painted portrait that came out of experience was everything that Escalante expected and more. Escalante, who feels strongly that Swihart is one of today’s greatest painters, knew that Swihart had a reputation for producing flawless, mesmerizing portraits, and that is exactly what he got.

But even before the oil painting was finished, Escalante got a “bonus” portrait that he hadn’t bargained for. He opened his e-mail one day to find that Swihart had photoshopped him into the indelibly memorable black and white news photo in which Lee Harvey Oswald is shot by Jack Ruby. Escalante appears on the left edge of the frame, gleefully taking a selfie while a tragedy unfolds behind him. As a parody of the extreme narcissism and self-absorption of self-selfie takers it works…

Selfie at the Oswald Shooting

Although the image was meant as a joke between friends, Escalante put the image on Instagram, and the reactions came quickly: it was really funny. Of course, some also took the image seriously — as art even — and the image ended up on display in an Arizona museum as part of an exhibition about guns in art.

Since the appearance of that first “selfie” Swihart has created well over 150 more images, placing Escalante in iconic photos, in the presence of celebrities and disasters, and has also inserted him into famous works of art. After an intense day in the painting studio, Swihart says that photoshopping the selfies are a way of “unwinding.” Escalante agrees: “For Jon, making one of these is like smoking a cigarette.”

Many of the images have the flavor of time travel, including one that Escalante particularly savors: “The one with Dali and Frida Kahlo is my favorite,” he explains, “I wish that had happened.”

The “selfies” series given Greg Escalante and his friends a lot of laughs: it’s a gag-gift that keeps on giving. In one offshoot of all this Escalante even has a new family that includes a baby boy — Mofo — born into the world with an Escalante hat and glasses. In subsequent images, Escalante’s new “family” even includes a possum and a coyote.

With Baby Mofo

For Jon Swihart, the whole project has been a lark, and also a reputation changer. When he attends art openings and people say “I’m a big fan of your work” it is often the Instagram selfies that they are talking about, not his paintings. At the Gregorio Escalante Gallery in Chinatown, where 40 of the selfies are now on display along with a selection of Swihart’s oils something remarkable is happening: viewers are breaking into uncontrolled laughter.

Greg Escalante, who hears the laughter in his upstairs office reflects that “There are very few shows that make people just laugh out loud. People are laughing like they are at a carnival, from one end of the show to the other.” Escalante is a very good sport — he doesn’t mind being the center of all these jokes — and in the process he has become the “Zelig” of Instagram, with time travel as his reward.

Did TV’s Greg Brady Seriously Date His TV Mom in Real Life?

When it originally aired from 1969-1974, the television series The Brady Bunch, about a man with three sons marrying a woman with three daughters, was far from a major success. It never finished in the Top 30 in the Nielsen ratings and was never nominated for any notable critical awards. It was popular enough, though, to make it through five seasons, which was notable in that it gave the show enough episodes (117) to meet the then-minimum threshold for successful syndication (for years, 100 episodes was the figure series generally had to hit to be successful in syndication. Nowadays it is 88 episodes). It was while in syndication and airing daily on stations all over the country that the show became a cultural sensation, and there have been numerous sequels and remakes of the series ever since.

2015-07-06-1436187871-1695409-bradybunch.jpeg

The seemingly perfect Bradys have become cultural icons and as such, any possible salaciousness involving the Bradys is latched on to with glee. Hence, the legend that Barry Williams, who played eldest son Greg Brady, dated Florence Henderson, who played his TV mother, Carol Brady.

Podcast Review: Greg Proops Film Club

Most podcast listeners, if they know Greg Proops, know him as the host of The Smartest Man In The World. (Many also likely know him as a long time cast member of TV’s Whose Line Is It Anyway.)

2014-09-19-GPFC.jpgSince the beginning of this year, though, he’s been pulling double duty. The Greg Proops Film Club is a monthly show, a sort of film companion if you will, featuring Proops in front of a live audience that has gathered to watch one of his favorite movies. The latest edition bookends a showing of The Man Who Would Be King, featuring Sean Connery and Michael Caine from 1975.

This is no dry dissertation however but, instead, finds the host reeling off anecdotes about the production (Rumor had it, for instance, that Humprey Bogart was slated to star in the movie a decade or more earlier but passed and the project lay dormant for years), memories about watching it for the first time as a teenager at a drive-in theater, and expounding on precisely why the movie holds so much cinematic goodness for him.

In much the same style as Smartest Man, Proops brings his engaging, rapid-fire intellect to the party, keeping the audience in stitches as he prepares them for a delectable silver screen experience. The show fades off as the movie begins and then fades back in as the film ends, leaving Proops to wrap up with a few more pithy remarks before sending the crowd, as he puts it, “off into this good night.”
