Music Meets Fashion: Exclusive Interview with Marylouise Pels and Vanessa Giovacchini of Posso Universe (and Style Tips!)

I'm going to be honest with you...if you are boring, you probably wont be able to keep up with the power DJ and fashion designer duo, Posso Universe. Just telling you now.

These luminaries of fashion and music are highly regarded and with good reason. They have recently graced the cover of Nylon Singapore magazine, have designed two Volcom capsule collections and played at New York Fashion Week and the Pacific Festival to name a few. Best part? They have been best friends since high school. You want to be friends with them too, don't lie.

This is what you need to know:

Hot babes. Check.
DJs. Check.
Fashion designers. Check
Talented. Check.
Stylish. Check.
Authentic. Check
I want to be them. Check.

They should most definitely be on your radar and if they aren't just as of yet, well then, you can thank me for the intro.

I spent an afternoon with these little firecrackers for an exclusive interview over tea at the Four Seasons Beverly Hills...

As always, leave it to me to ask the hard-hitting questions. We dished on what exactly defines their personal style, party girl advice, what their wearing head-to-toe at this very moment and of course, what's in their bag. Plus, as always, I nabbed a few styling tips just for you.

Bonus? Their highly anticipated first official track release "So High" is available today exclusively on Beatport!
Play it loud, play it real loud. I'm thinking you could listen to this jam as you're applying your lip gloss, nail art and fake eyelashes before you hit the club. Sounds about right, no?

All right, so this is what the girls have to say...

RSP: How does music inspire your personal style?

Marylouise and Vanessa: People ask us that all the time "how does your music meet your fashion?" We've always been interested in fashion as way to express
ourselves and who we are, but when you compare fashion to dance music
culture there is actually a very basic similarity...both are very much
run by popular trends and both will always have a reemergence of
classic sounds or classic looks when the trend is exhausted. Music is
an intangible art form it is naturally more dynamic, but in terms of
how both are always in a constant flux of expression, they are really
similar and equally fascinating. Hearing a new song you love, whether
you're a DJ or not can reset your mood instantly, upping your swag,
inspiring you to try on a new look. What a fantastic fucking cycle.

RSP: Personal style influenced by:
Marylouise and Vanessa:
