It’s that day again. When people get lit in costume. That’s so basic, bruh.

Dj Five Is The Real Vegas Golden Knight. With Turntables & Rad T Shirts.

When DJ Five isn’t spinning some of the biggest celeb driven venues in Las Vegas, you can find him at the gym early in the morning or hanging out with his nephew and his parents. “This is the real Vegas- that whole Sin City shit is for tourist”. Is it a city where you can find a party at any time of day, but life can also be pretty chill and consistent. And a market on the rise in ways Bugsy Seigle couldn’t image. There is a growing indie music scene, backpack rap and skate board community, and avant garde mod art. There are cool things happening now that don’t involve cliches like the Joe Peschi in a little tux, the Bunny Ranch, circus themed dinner theater, Kris Angle, or blowing the 401 K at a penny slot. DJ  Five, hailing originally from LA, has been dj-ing since 15, and…

Rave Fashion Is Back. Get The Look, Then Get The E Pills.

In the late 90’s an electric monster was growing in underground warehouses in NYC. Everything felt like you were in the movie “Cool World” – complete with a pulsing techno soundtrack that never ended, bouncing red and purple lights, and perhaps you even saw a cartoon if you took enough Vitamin E. The whirlpool of culture meshing and trends that is New York City fashion is currently dabbling with rave, gabber and techno-inspired looks — goggle shades, electric bright joggers, massive cybergoth boots that make everyone look like Tank Girl, that kinda late 90’s tech shit. The raver shades from Gosha Rubchinskiy X Superfuture have been a smash hit on the streets of NY, but like so many of the weirdo subcultures New York churns out rigorously, this one might not make it’s way anywhere near the mainstream. But neither did OG Rave culture of the 90’s. Here’s a few joints on Wanderset…

How The “Dad Hat” + NormCore Irony Has Taken Over.

Despite all the subcultures and the ever changing cultural trend machine that is fed equally by Milan and a teen’s seapunk Tumblr, fashion still goes only two ways in 2017. With all nuances and niches aside, it can best be categorized as loud or understated. With luxury lifestyle brands traditionally embracing the understated (because the coolest kid in the room doesn’t need to scream for attention) and street wear or counter culture brands doing the all cranked up thing (because they’re young, they’re fucking ballsy, and you know…no parents and all that) – the lines have traditionally been drawn. Enter “Dad Hats”. Worn by actual dads at youth sports games since forever, it’s become the stylish headwear of choice since December of 2016. The fashion movement “NORMCORE” is presumably what sparked the Dad Hat Revolution Of 2017. If you don’t know the term “NORMCORE” (and it’s gotta be in all…

The 20 Year Cycle Of Fashion + Culture.

Wanderset Breaks Down Why 2017 Feels Alot Like 92-97, And Explores The Theory That Everything Repeats Itself On A 20-25 Year Grid.  When I was 17 I used to skip class in New Haven, CT and go hang on the green or at pubs in the Arts District a ton. I used to have conversations with bums, doctors, gangsters and Yale students alike. It expanded me. To be honest, my class cutting adventures are probably the reason I do anything I do now. It was a period of huge growth. Ironically, the hobos would say the most expansive things. There was this one cat, who they called “Money” (the proverbial they stay giving out ironic names, I swear) who told me this theory about how culture in general was on a 20-25 year cycle. Music and fashion all took two decades to circle. Nothing proves Money was actually money on…
