MOMENTS | Link up: Jacob Hashimoto, The Row, Karen O & Ezra Koenig, Moda Operandi, Sochi Winter Olympics

Staying relevant on the go.

1. If you’re in Los Angeles any time from February 20th-April 5th, Jacob Hashimoto’s Yellow Giant and Gas Giant Studies exhibition at the Martha Otero Gallery is a must see.

Hashimoto’s work is derived from a combination of 3D rendering technologies and traditional applied craft, creating art that explores the tension between the infinite systems and actual reality.

2. It’s almost as if Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen knew the Polar Vortex was coming. The Row’s FW14 collection brought the concept of cozy to the extreme by experimenting with daring proportions and various textures.

3. Hear Karen O and Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig perform the Oscar-nominated “The Moon Song”.

The duet was was co-written by Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O and director Spike Jonze for his film Her, which Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlet Johansson sang in the film.

4. Fashion meets Tinder? We didn’t think anything could class up the Tinder model, but Moda Operandi just released a mobile app that allows shoppers to ‘like’ and ‘dislike’ fresh runway looks. The app then alerts you when the pieces are available for sale. 

5. With all the #SochiProblems and the controversy over Russia’s human rights record, it almost feels like this round of the Winter Olympics is about everything but the athletes.

Esquire continues this trend by weighing in with a satirical piece on corruption in Russia.
