URBAN DECAY appeared on the glittery world scene in Southern California in 1996, “when we sent a riptide through the ocean of pink-colored store shelves in the industry.” Edgy high-performance make-up without animal testing. A statement in no uncertain terms by founders Patricia Holmes and Sandy Lerner to the establishment : “New inventions instead of perfection. Inspiration without imitation. Friendliness instead of cruelty.” Forget about beauty in a pretty sense – and do what you want. For the latest PRINCE collection from the uber-cool house of URBAN DECAY, Rodger HOSTETLER c/o ALYSSA PIZER MANAGEMENT photographed the motifs presented here.
About – URBAN DECAY. Pink, red, and beige tones dominated the beauty industry palette until the mid-1990s. In 1995, Sandy Lerner, a co-founder of Cisco Systems, and Patricia Holmes were at Lerner’s mansion outside London when Holmes mixed raspberry and black to form a new color. Then, they decided to form a cosmetics company, which they named Urban Decay. Launched in January 1996, it offered a line of ten lipsticks and twelve nail polishes. Their color palette was inspired by the urban landscape, with names such as Roach, Smog, Rust, Oil Slick, and Acid Rain. In 2000, Moet-Hennessy Louis Vuitton (a diversified luxury goods group) purchased Urban Decay, and L’Oréal acquired the company in 2012. GoSee : urbandecay.com & alyssapizer.com

What really counts. Cheyenne ELLIS c/o ALYSSA PIZER MANAGEMENT photographed her personal project in the Bonny Doon Forest Temple, the “magical retreat space in the Santa Cruz mountains.” Cheyenne : “The Heart Song Retreat in Bonny Doon hosted by some of my beautifully talented friends, ripped me wide open. Thank you to everyone who made this possible. So much love and laughter poured into this project.”
On the website of the temple, we read : “The Bonny Doon Forest Temple was created with healing in mind. Our land offers an opportunity to disconnect from civilization, breathe in fresh air & rejuvenate on a cellular level. Upon arrival, you can feel your circadian rhythm start to regulate. We often walk barefoot through the woods and garden to simply feel the damp forest floor between our toes. It’s grounding – the principle that guides all elements of life on our land.”
Eva Holbrook, Principle Designer : “The Hideaway is a place birthed completely from my heart space & intuition. I have deep reverence for the land and animals that live in this forest, as well as those who stewarded this mountain long before we arrived. The Awaswas people, also known as Santa Cruz people, are one of the divisions of the Ohlone Native Americans of Northern California.
I am honored to share this land in reverence of their traditions. It was truly a dream to design & create this little hermitage in the forest. I wanted the space to feel rustic and immersed in nature, yet luxurious. Not fancy, but with a slight Japanese Onsen touch – while still honoring that California coastal ethos. The final ingredient? A sprinkle of fairy dust, of course.” Curious ? GoSee : bonnydoonforesttemple.com & alyssapizer.com
