Violette New York x Bowery Bob 1 of 1 Fire Extinguisher

In an effort to raise money and awareness for the firefighters who responded to the East Village fire in NYC earlier this year, my brand Violette New York & Bowery Bob have collab’ed on a 1 of 1 special edition purple fire extinguisher. The extinguisher is being auctioned off on eBay with all proceeds going to the FDNY Foundation.

LIFE: DJ’ing for Cadillac & Nick Wooster’s #StyleDriven + Hanging with the Bro’s at Max Fish (9.1.15)


Last night I DJ’ed a fun little event for Cadillac and the Capsule Collection they did, curated and styled by Nick Wooster. I even had my own Cadillac truck and driver pick me up and drop me off. Elle, Chester Berry and Deemehlow came through and we ended the night with dinner at our favorite digs and drinks at Max Fish! It was a perfect evening with the homies.IMG_0452

VIDEO: Stromae – “Papaoutai”


Paul Van Haver (born 12 March 1985), better known by his stage name Stromae, is a Belgian singer, rapper and songwriter. He is originally from Laeken, in Brussels. He has established himself in both the hip hop and electronic music genres. Stromae came to wide public attention with his song “Alors on danse”, which became a number one in several European countries.

I first started playing this song on my Snapchat and soon I got many messages from you guys asking who it was. This song is one of my favorites and I get to play it on my Apple Music Beats One Radio Slot (have you guys tuned in yet?).

OMG. Why did I look up him as a kid and these adorable images popped up! My ovaries are on flames right now.
