This week on BTR is dedicated to one of my other passions: cooking! (And, of course, eating…) Food + fashion go hand in hand for many reasons, and no one knows that better than this week’s guest, chef-turned-designer Alex McCrery. After more than 17 years working in the food industry, Alex became dissatisfied with the frumpy uniform options available to professional chefs. His personal frustration led to research, which ultimately led to the creation of a new, uniquely stylish label of cooking garments called Tilit Chef Goods. On today’s show, Alex talks about his Southern-meets-Italian cooking background, what led to the launch of Tilit, the aesthetic he aims to offer through the label, a few of his own fashion and food favorites, and more. Plus, a decadent playlist of tracks including a song off the brand new album from Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy and his son Spencer, along with music from Tijuana Panthers, Arc Iris, and New Orleans’ Generationals. So grab your cast iron pan and follow a new recipe for fashion, with Sew & Tell on BreakThru Radio!
It's time for a BBQ on BTR's Roadside Assistance, presented by United Airlines! Listen as 8 different BTR DJs present 8 different interpretations on what kind of soundtrack goes best with grilling food outside. Take it with ye wherever ye are bound!
Surf’s up here on BTR, and we’re celebrating the official start of summer today on Sew & Tell with Estuaries, a beautiful new line of beach and swimwear from sisters/co-founders Zhu Ru and Layla Chen. Natives of Hawaii, both sisters eventually migrated to the Big Apple and decided to seize the opportunity to work on a new project together. Lucky for us, that project is a minimalistic, elegant, understated line of swim and resort pieces inspired by both the beach culture of Hawaii and the urban jungle of New York. On today’s show, Zhu Ru and Layla talk about the launch of Estuaries, how the polarized influences of Hawaii and New York find balance in their designs, the design challenges specific to creating swimwear, some of the elements that inspire the Estuaries piece, a few of their favorite spots in Hawaii, and more. Plus, a soundtrack covered in surf and sand, featuring tracks from artists like Tijuana Panthers, Beach House, Best Coast, and Coastgaard. So find a beach chair, lay back and relax in style with Sew & Tell on BTR!
