For all the latest and greatest in fashion and community news, Embodied’s got you covered. Read below to see what need-to-know information you might have missed this week!
In what may or may not be the most important report of this week, we must share some rather nauseating and simultaneously depressing news that NYC’s famous bakery Dominique Ansel AKA “The Home of The Cronut” has closed until further notice. After a kind customer posted a video on YouTube of some furry critters runnin’ around, the Department of Health came a knock knock knockin’ on Dominique’s doors. For those of you who have yet to the culinary creation, we feel your pain in attempting to reconcile whether you can overcome this disturbing news. For those of you who have eaten the croissant + donut hybrid, well, let’s hope it wasn’t recently…
Well isn’t that just awesome — it seems that the law suit filed by two former interns at publishing mecca Condé Nast has at long last been settled. While the rest of us are still suffering from the consequences of the internship program being shut down, we are happy to hear that things have finally cooled down. Perhaps given a little more time, negotiations can take place to get that internship program – one of the best in the business – back up and running.
It seems big things have been happening out in Brooklyn with Urban Outfitter’s newest endeavor making a grand entrance to the up-and-coming hipster hood. The successful retail chain is opening a four-story warehouse concept store in Williamsburg that is receiving a mixture of reviews, with residents being somewhat unsure but other commentators loving the loot in store. With its stock of everything from local clothing lines to workman tools (they sell axes in case you need to be chopping some wood), healing crystals (with accompanying pouches) to jelly sandals, we know you’ll be wanting to check this place out.
While out here in New York, studies continue, festival season is about to commence. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is taking place over the course of two weekends: April 11-13 and April 18-20. The line-up is epic, to say the least, and if you’re as sad as we are that you cannot attend, here is some news to cheer you up. The festival will be live-streamed via Youtube Weekend 1 and on the cable channel AXS TV Weekend 2. We cannot wait to dress-up in our fave festival gear and rock out to Lorde, Outkast, Haim and Disclosure from the comfort of our dorm room.
