Put on your dancing shoes!
This week, I'm joined by the multi-talented, multicultural designer Nina Egli, creator of not one, but *two* great lines, Toujours Toi and Family Affairs. Nina started Toujours Toi in 2002 - 2003, as a charm bracelet side project for extra cash. It quickly took center stage, and her quirky, elegant combinations of charms, cast metal, sequins, and crystals captivate the imaginations of women everywhere. In 2008, Nina and her mother, Kaya, also a designer, began to work together on a line of women's clothing. Not surprisingly, their Swiss/New York cross-continental label, appropriately called Family Affairs, took off just as quickly as Nina's jewelry. Their collections are full of whimsical prints, paired with classic, vintage-inspired cuts for a look that's full of elegance and magic. On today's show, Nina will talk about how she began Toujours Toi, the stories and cinema that inspire her, and some brand new Family Affairs projects for the coming collections. Plus, music from Sufjan's Christmas epic, a Jonti re-do, and Toro Y Moi's new single - all that and more in this hour of fashion, so tune in as we keep fashion in the family on BTR!

In the wake of the recent success of E.L. James' Fifty Shades of Grey, Book Talk takes a close look at three major female writers from the past who have challenged the conventions of their day. I first look at the life of the Greek poet Sappho, one of the first ever known female writers. I then move stateside and examine the social challenges brought forward in Kate Chopin's The Awakening. I finally, I discuss why so many women today are gobbling up Fifty Shades of Grey.

A conversation with White Birds, recorded after their recent show at Pianos with High Highs, and part II of my palaver with Rob Sacher (former owner of NYC clubs Luna Lounge, Mission and Sanctuary)
My guest this week is Antwerp based-photographer Jan Kempenaers. Jan broke out on the photography scene in 2010 when he published a book called Spomenik. The book documents the giant geometric sculptures that were built across the countryside of the former Yugoslavia in the 60s and 70 as monuments to various sites and battles from World War Two. Jan traveled to these isolated sites to photograph these alien-looking sculptures. Before Jan's project these monuments were largely unknown except to the people in the small towns where they're located.

It's almost March, which means we're heading into the heaviest month of winter, but it also means that there's only one more month until spring!!  That means we need to celebrate and beat the winter blues, which is why I started this week's show with some really great punk bands, to energize us and keep us warm while we wait.  In the meantime, check out BTR's Facebook and Twitter!
What IS genre these days, anyways?  Whatever you want it to be, I guess.  I think that's lucky for us, because that means we're playing a lot of great music on the show today, all with the uniting thread that it's just a tiny bit weird.  Or a lot weird.  Depending on where you're coming from.  So check out great tunes from Dustin Wong, Islands, and Of Montreal, and don't forget to check out BTR on Facebook and Twitter, too!
Tuesday with DJ Emily features music from Cursive, Islands, Elliott Brood and more!
Happy Valentine's Day! Whether you celebrate the day or you don't, DJ Emily's got a great mix for your Tuesday.

I know that NYC is still celebrating the Superbowl hardcore, and I hope you fully enjoyed the amazing, nail-biting win... BUT. Let's be serious. The Superbowl of Style is just around the corner - NY Fashion Week! So we're gonna get down to business and talk fashion today. And speaking of business - I have the honor of highlighting an incredible organization and business venture on today's show. Awamaki is a non-profit based in Peru, that works with local women to preserve indigenous weaving techniques, and to further their skills as craftspeople. Towards that end, Awamaki recently launched a design residency program, spearheaded by Annie Millican. The Awamaki Lab residency offers young designers an opportunity to create a collection of clothing, built around these beautiful traditional Peruvian textiles. Awamaki Lab just celebrated the launch of its second collection, F/W 2012, designed by collaborators and fellow Parsons grads Andria Crescioni and Courtney Cedarholm. The pieces are timeless yet modern, with references to menswear that retain a thoroughly feminine sensibility. On today's show, Andria and Courtney talk about their experiences in Peru, learning about local fibers and natural dyes, and how anthropologists and explorers from the turn of the century led to these gorgeous garments. Plus, tons of great new music today from Dr. Dog, Sharon Van Etten, of Montreal, Young Magic and more! So prep yourself for Fashion Week with your first collection of F/W 2012...
