Pitchfork   The Dissolve   Festivals: Chicago | Paris

The Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival for 2013, curated by the Land and Sea Department, celebrates arts, music, food, and culture in Logan Square, Chicago—which just so happens to be the home of Nothing Major HQ. 

The fest features the work of over 50 visual artists and designers from the area (graphic superstars Drug Factory Press and Sonnenzimmer for instance) in pop-up galleries, live music on two stages (notable acts include Dam-Funk, Waco Brothers, Santah, and The Cairo Gang), and food booths from the likes of stellar local restaurants Reno, Chicago Diner, and Parson's Chicken & Fish. 

But the MAAF is even better than that because Nothing Major will be on hand—in pop-up shop form, that is. 

The Nothing Major shop at MAAF will be stocked with limited quantities of OLO Lightning Paw perfume, Juniper Ridge room spray, Taylor Stitch shirts, our Coil Lamp, totes, T-shirts, patches, and diamond pins. The shop will also stock a limited range of items from FairEnds, Needles & Pens, Co.lab and Filly.

We're also excited to introduce four new caps from our Nothing Belongs to Ebbets collection, which will be available exclusively at MAAF. Plus, we'll have discount code buttons for our online shop. So come on by and meet the team!

The Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival runs Friday June 28 5pm-10pm, Saturday June 29 12pm-10pm, Sunday June 30 12pm-10pm on Milwaukee Avenue in Chicago's Logan Square. Visit MAAF online for more information.

Fringe is everywhere right now. Seriously. With the hippie look in full bloom for 2013 spring and summer festivals, you can't walk into a clothing store or scroll down a fashion blog without seeing a fringe bucket bag, fringe cropped top, fringe skirt, ad nauseum. However, as in-your-face as fringe has been lately, we think the manipulation of fringe into jewelry details is probably the most innovative and welcome sidenote to the fringe story. Whether it's subtle metal links cascading down a cuff or a leather fringe necklace, fringe jewelry provides options for riding the season's wave without embracing the trend in its entirety. Here are five options to get you started.

Adia Kibur cuff, $36 



Chola earrings, $120 

K/LLER necklace, $310

Auden Cuff, $388
