OKKYUNG LEE

 

was recently introduced to new york-based, south korean experimental cellist and composer okkyung lee by a friend and can't get enough. she came out with a new album (above) earlier this summer, and we've also been listening to this amazing playlist she put together of 70s and 80s korean pop.

NAME BEHIND THE NAME: LIMBO VINTAGE




our new limbo styles have late 60s and 70s vibes, and limbo was also the name of the vintage store credited with starting new york's vintage shopping scene on st. marks when it opened in 1965. some good history of it here and here. wish we were around back then to have seen it (and the st. marks of yore) in real life! we’ve only seen the sign which was left up after the store closed down, and sadly, even that’s gone now. 

DRINK OBSESSION


we’ve been drinking gallons of iced barley tea lately to keep us cool and hydrated. if you’ve never tried it, barley tea tastes toasty and refreshing, and only recently did we find out it has so many benefits to boot. 

90'S COMFORT SHOE BRANDS -- A SERIES




sport-AY! 

the 90's heyday of comfort-focused shoes brings in all kinds of branding/names we love. we said it once before and we'll say it again, CONSIDER COMFORT in all shoe production (less wasteful!)...please and thank you.

THIS IS POSSIBLY THE COOLEST GRANDMA


we're convinced that HOPP customers are all incredibly smart and funny writers. a latest sampling, if you will, of email feedback we got. we're definitely with her on the italy move...

FEELS LIKE THE FIRST TIME (BUT DIFFERENT)

love these twins' unbiased reactions to what many consider compulsory "must-listen-to" music throughout history. it's the purest thing that makes us listen to songs like "In the Air Tonight" (and phil's epic drum solo drop) with fresh ears.

A LIL SOLILOQUY BY JO

GOING OUT ON A LIMBO



snuck up to the roof for a quick snap of HOPP's Cher modeling/wear-testing our new cushioned Limbos that will drop very soon. the delay has not been deliberate 😫

EASY SPIRIT








'Looks Like A Pump, Feels Like A Sneaker.' we love it. classic 80's appeal of comfort shoes. comfort was really considered back then more than now. BRING IT BACK.

JOSIE PACKARD WAS A BABE TOO


who else remembers this rolling stone cover? great archive account, 17.21 ASIAN WOMEN did right by adding joan chen to the cover photograph. she should have been on there regardless of how annoying josie was on the show...

AND SPEAKING OF PROTEST SHIRTS...
