Kiki Jai Raj is an Aspen, CO-based art dealer ski-bum who likes to lovingly stroke the stylistic Venn diagram of ladylike and post-apocalyptic. She spends disproportionate amounts on borderline-unnecessary tools and gear, and still mourns Helmut Lang’s retirement.
Sloane Martin is a writer, reader, collage-maker and used clothing store worker in San Francisco. She collects wide-brimmed hats, ankle boots, leather jackets and bolo ties. Lately she’s been going for an urban cowgirl kind of thing, but less costume-y than what you’re picturing. She gets really excited about good breakfast foods, Japanese whiskey, and making lists (she’s a Libra, obviously). Sloane was once told that the children’s book Eloise explained a lot about her, and she doesn’t disagree.
