Edgar Allan Poe Exhibit: Terror of the Soul

Posted by The E on October 31, 2013

In honor of the holiday, we take a closer look at a key inspiration behind our current Fall 2013 collection, the godfather of modern horror himself, Edgar Allan Poe. An exhibit at NYC’s Morgan library lends depth to the Gothic writer’s work by suggesting his work parodied literary conventions of the era, an argument that strengthens the case for his deep influences on film and other contemporary storytelling. Happy halloween!

Habitual on Covet

Posted by The E on October 29, 2013

Do you Covet? Covet is a new virtual styling app where Habitual was recently top-rated! Coveters used our Addison Hi Rise Moto and Grace Hi Rise Skinny pants in their looks in events ranging from “Figure Drawing Class” to “Natural Elements” to play the game. Finally, a guilt-free way to commit a sin.

For an all-out bad girl look, we love how Neiman Marcus’ Styling Director paired the Habitual Elle Motos in Woodland Coated with workwear staples and biker-chic leather in this recent editorial. Shop the look here.

Posted by The E on October 23, 2013

Not only do Wigwam socks go well with boots and a pair of Habituals (hello ’90s looks!), but they’re made stateside in Wisconsin.

Josh Tillman's Magazine Cover Watercolors

Posted by The E on October 22, 2013

From the cheeky mind of Father John Misty frontman Josh Tillman, these original artworks are charming send ups of contemporary magazine covers. As much as mock headlines like “Other Numbers + Words” poke fun at print publishing conventions, we sense at least a little affection for the joy that glossies bring us within the parody. After all, imitation is the sincerest form, sardonic or not!

Habitual October Outfit, Weekend Edition

Posted by The E on October 18, 2013

For off-duty dressing without the resignation of sweats, we turn to separates in sensual materials and edgy prints, like Mary Katrantzou’s modal-and-cashmere Landscape scarf, paired with our comfy-but-glam Habitual Eve in Deep, a Nordstrom exclusive. Add a brimmed hat by WoodWood to ward chills with on-trend style, and you’re totally not in business. Also pictured: Protagonist tee in 3-ply silk and Rag & Bone Bannon booties.

Artists We Love: Mike Kelley

Posted by The E on October 16, 2013

If you pored over the liner notes of Sonic Youth’s album “Dirty” like we did, you’re already familiar with the deadpan pop of artist Mike Kelley, who died of apparent suicide in 2012. While cut short, his work goes far beyond those cover art images of readymade stuffed animals, which MoMA shows in their Kelley retrospective that opened at their P.S.1 space last weekend and runs through February 2, 2014. The show paints the full picture of an artist that, as his friend Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth said, “was on a ride, and he just didn’t quite know how to get off it.”
