WEEKLEE x cityLife x 3Q APRIL

As we evolve here at cityLife, so too do our features, and with an overwhelming amount of creative talent surrounding us, great ideas are common.  To help you guys keep up to date with our magazine, we have proposed a weekly recap article (with links), to help everyone stay in touch with things.  This week also marks our first feature article/interview with designer and photograher, Laura Austin.  We most definitely look forward to working with Ms. Austin in the future and hope you come back to check out her guest articles as they drop.  One more piece of news, fresh off the presses, is the announcement that cityLife Magazine will be relaunching in July.  We will be changing servers and completely redesigning the site to assist the rapid growth that we are facing.  This redesign will enable us to add a lot more content and feature articles, while keeping everything super fresh and clean looking.  We are currently looking for contributors and interns, welcoming anyone that we feel will make a positive impact on our magazine. 

The third quarter of April brought us a bunch of awesome releases including the spring line from Acapulco Gold, Jack Purcell boat shoes by Converse, Eric Koston's Nike SB signature kicks, and the G-Shock x In4mation surf watch.  We all did a little puff puff on Tuesday to celebrate 4/20, with Nike announcing the release of its "Skunk" dunks, causing controversy in some church circles. Von Zipper jumped on with its One Love bundle and we posted a special Bob Marley edition of the dailydose.  Tragedy struck this week as the legendary Guru from Gangstarr passed away due to complications with cancer.  Shepard Fairley completed a mural at the famous Houston block in NYC, and our own Sharkey dug a photo of her little sister on the GQ Girls of Coachella feature! A couple amazing lookbooks graced our screens with Laurent Desgranges S/S release, then my personal favorite, the Joyrich S/S 2010!  To mark the end of a great week here at cityLife, I had the privilage of talking with Quiksilver designer, Laura Austin.  Check it out people, and keep it real.
