Letter from the Publisher Left: Zayne Matulis shows off the latest in spring athletic wear at Westlake Chapparal Stadium. Right: Outtake from our shoot with beloved TRIBEZA columnist, Kristin Armstrong, and her twin daughters, Grace (left) and Isabelle (right).

T

he first time I watched Boyhood, I was amazed by Patricia Arquette’s performance

and

the

way

her

character evolved over 12 years of the film, but it was also Austin native Zoe Graham who played the

film’s star, Ellar Coltrane’s high school girlfriend, that captivated me. Then, when we read more about her—her smart, feminist voice, that she was in the all-girl rock band Schmillion as a high schooler in Austin and is now pursuing a degree in fibers at the Maryland Institute Dan Winters. Winters, along with stylist Lauren Smith Ford and floral designer Antonio Bond of Transplants Floral, collaborated on this month’s cover and the 20-page spread inside the magazine aptly entitled “Zoe Blooms” on page 50. She just wrapped up filming The Secret In Their Eyes where she plays Julia Roberts' daughter, and we think this bright young beauty is just getting started and has much more than just Hollywood box office success in her future. That is just one of a few exciting photo shoots in this issue—artist Alyson Fox picked up her (film) camera and headed to Elgin, Texas to shoot some of our favorite Spring looks in the downtown loft apartment and studio of artist Margo Sawyer on page 80. Photographer Jessica Pages and TRIBEZA art director Ashley Horsley found the best and latest in stylish athletic gear and enlisted the stunning mother-daughter duo, Lisa and Zayne Matulis (who will be playing soccer at Harvard this fall) to rock them throughout the Westlake Chaparral Stadium. We also share a lot of other ideas for where to shop and dine (look for even more news on that front in next month’s Food Issue). All this style talk has us excited for TRIBEZA Style Week No. 12 that will be happening this September. Dates are coming soon. We hope this year’s Spring Style Issue leaves you feeling excited for stocking your wardrobe for the new seasons with all the great pieces you can find shopping local in Austin!

Growing Up BY KRISTIN ARMSTRONG photog r a ph by j e ss ic a pag e s

The clock is ticking and soon my twin 13-year-old daughters will be metal free. No more unsightly food trapped in silver brackets. No more cats-in-the-cradle colored rubber band configurations spring-loading their jaws. No more moody Mona Lisa smiles with sealed lips. The orthodontist explained to the girls that if they wear their rubber bands without fail until the next appointment, they could get their braces off. Their hearts soared, while my heart sank. I quickly intervened, “Oh girls, those rubber bands are such a pain. They make your teeth hurt and give you a headache. And you can’t chew gum or eat candy the way you love to do. There’s no need to wear those silly things.” The orthodontist looked at me like I had been taking nips off his laughing gas. “You see, uh, I’m not quite ready for my girls to be done with braces. Isn’t there something you can do, some kind of treatment plan that lasts until, say, after college?” I asked. My daughters did a double-twin-power-activate-eye-roll and groaned at me through their rubber-banded grimaces, “Mo-ooooom.” Ugh. I’ve discovered the word mom has two syllables and a very low octave when you annoy or embarrass your adolescent children. I have reason to be concerned. They already have too-cute figures. God given, not strived for, so they look created, not carved. They steal my jeans and my Lululemon and look better in all my clothes than I do. They have sun-kissed highlighted manes of thick hair that fall in a perfectly flat-ironed lush curtain down their backs. Their eyes, now accented with a faint brush of mascara, convey both innocence and sophistication: I’m old enough to get it but too young to care. Wink. Their skin is lineless and immaculate, plump-cheeked and youthful and p.s. you’re welcome for all my summers of being the Sunscreen Nazi.

They paint their nails pale pink or a sassy ocean blue. Their fashion sense is comfortable and effortlessly cute. They can wear white Converse shoes with anything, anywhere, and suddenly everyone else looks overdressed. They are unaware of their beauty, which frees them of its baggage. Being twins, but not identical, gives them enough space to be themselves, yet enough closeness that they are a force to be reckoned with. They hover in the gap between girl and gal, and I feel the tension as both camps vie for their membership. The last vestige of childhood I have is the metal. So I want the braces to stay on, damnit. I don’t want them to be cuter or more kissable. I don’t want them to look older. I don’t want them to grow up, not just yet. Let’s just slow this freight train down, I say, as I try to tie myself to the metal tracks. I am not ready for the white expanse of their real grownup smiles. The ones that will smile proudly at me when they get their driver’s licenses or graduate from high school. The brave smiles when I hug them goodbye at college. The dreamy smiles that will let me know they have fallen truly, irrevocably in love. The smiles that burst with excitement over job offers, promotions, proposals, weddings and pregnancy tests. The motherly smiles that will one day smile down at my grandchildren. To this very metaphorical, hormonal, nostalgic mother, the removal of this metal represents stepping out of the protective armor of childhood. Meanwhile, I want to add some more alligators to the moat and pull up the drawbridge. But the wiser part of me knows that the loveliest things on earth cannot be covered or contained, things like love, sunsets, stars, and oceans. And my daughters growing up and smiling at the world.

Peter Mullan

Wall er C r eek Co n s erva n c y ’ s n e w CEO p r epa r e s to c h a n g e Au s t i n fo r e v er .

P

eter Mullan never considered moving to Texas an ambition. A native New Yorker, Mullan spent a decade working for Friends of the High Line, an expansive urban parks project that runs along the west side of Manhattan, and a big inspiration for the Waller Creek vision. But when the Austin-based Waller Creek Conservancy launched a nationwide campaign in 2014 to find a CEO, Mullan decided to pursue the opportunity. Considering his impressive resume and his experience with public works, Mullan was a natural fit for the organization. With Mullan now in place, the WCC is about to kick the massive Waller Creek revitalization project into high gear. Over the next few years, Austinites can look forward to improved infrastructure, new attractions and more events like November’s enchanting Creek Show light installation. Mullan says he hopes Waller Creek brings the same sense of community and revitalization to downtown Austin as the High Line did for Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood. And though Mullan has only called Austin home for a few weeks, he’s already fallen in love with the people, the culture and the city itself. With all eyes on Waller Creek, we chatted with the new CEO to find out a little bit more about this newly-minted Texan. k. friel

5 Questions for peter So what was it about the Waller Creek project that compelled you to pick up and move to Austin? It's very rare that you get the opportunity to participate in projects that have major transformative [effect] on a city. I had that with the High Line, and thought that was a once in lifetime opportunity. Waller Creek has the same potential for change. The High Line was a massively successful public works project that changed the landscape of New York City. What lessons did you learn during your decade with

34

april 2015 tribeza.com

Friends of the High Line that you will bring to Waller Creek Conservancy? There are many lessons. One, is it's important to recognize that these projects have to be community-based efforts [and] engage lots of different kinds of people. That is their power…it makes the project more successful because people have ownership of it. These projects are not for the next five years, they're for the next 50 years…you always to have to remember that. Why do you think Austinites have taken such an interest in the Waller Creek project? I’ve been amazed at the people in Austin that I've encountered. People are so welcoming, and willing to engage and generous of spirit; I can't say enough

about the people I've met. The culture of going out to restaurants and clubs to hear music and being outdoors; there is an inherent publicness to the culture of Austin. People are physically engaging with the city in all of these different ways. You’ve only been on the job for a few weeks, but what kind of pressure are you feeling? You wanna show results, [like] getting a piece of Waller Creek open to the public as soon as possible. There are lot of things we're doing, and that we can do, like the annual [Waller Creek] Picnic on April 18. [Ultimately,] you have to have courage, you have to recognize that it's gonna be hard, hard work, because these projects are hard to get gone. You have to be in for the long haul. p h oto g r a p h y by A n d r e w C h a n

The Artist Group Show at Canopy

F

or the first time, the Metropolitan Gallery will play host to an inaugural show that features the work of the Artist Group, a collective of artists housed in the Canopy complex. The complex that was once a Goodwill sorting center was reimagined by Michael Hsu Architects and has become a bustling epicenter for the creative community. Home to galleries like Big Medium, Modern Rocks and Little Pink Moster, Canopy is also the office/studio to photographers, filmmakers, ceramicists and architects. The Spring Art Show will showcase work in varying mediums and disciplines by over 30 artists. One of the featured artists, Peggy Weiss, is excited about the new collective and says, "The Artist Group at Canopy, will host informational meetings where artists can share new ideas, potential projects, new material uses, opportunities, and collaboration ideas.” Check out the group exhibit at Canopy at 916 Springdale Road on April 18 and 19 from noon to 6pm. tribeza staff

A

sk women’s wear designer Jean Jones her fashion philosophy, and it’s pretty simple: “Life is too short to wear clothes that don’t feel right.” It’s this golden rule that drives her own work as a handweaver meets couturiere with her own luxury line. Known by her fiercely feminine and timeless designs, Jones turns to laces, tweeds, and her own unique handwovens to bring her collections to life. “I prefer to use the best fabrics that I can find, and design and construct clothes in the best way possible,” the designer says. “How you feel every day matters. Wear the best clothes you can.” Jones goes the distance to ensure that anyone wearing her designs will be doing just that. In fact, many of the fabrics used in her lines are sourced from England, France, and Italy—romantic destinations where Jones lived for several years before ultimately planting roots in Austin. With nearly 300 sunny days a year, it’s no surprise Jones credits Austin’s light as the inspiration behind her recently released S/S 2015 line, The Light Collection. Stirred by the optimism bright days often bring, Jones designed a line that features rose-printed dresses, billowing blouses, and a stylish wrap dress any local will vie for that Jones has nicknamed “The Austinite.” She’s currently working on several pop-up and trunk shows to look forward to in the coming months, but for now you can browse any of her lines at jeanjones.com. t. mendoza

Polis h & Lacquer Two new nail salons want to make sure your fingers and toes always look great. For those on the go, Lacquer (which opened in March) offers classic and deluxe mani-pedis in its downtown location. “My vision is to create a place where you can get pampered in less than an hour and walk out and feel great about yourself,” says owner Carla Hatler. Part of this pampering includes the Essie gel system, featuring colors from Rebecca Minkoff. A little further north, sisters Molly Donovan and Elisabeth Tynberg are bringing high-end nail care to Central Austin. At Polish (which opened in January), you can indulge in a Polish Pedicure, which includes a foot soak,

Off To The R aces Before a motorcycle racer hits the track, they’ve got to be properly suited up. World Champion MotoGP racer Kevin Schwantz shares a few surprising facts about what the racers put on before they take off. -“Almost all the riders wear some type of protection for their spine underneath their leather racing suit. It’s a soft padding with some hard plastic. A good description for what most of them look like is kind of like an armadillo’s back. It can bend over and then come back, but doesn’t overlap when it goes.” -“Most of the riders wear a thin nylon suit that helps make getting the leathers on and off easier. It’s just kind of a big, tight set of pajamas, more or less.”

-“Whatever helmet company riders use most have things that you’ll see them tearing off during the race. They’re called tear-offs, and they’re thin pieces of plastic that cover the shield, in case you get a bug or something on the shield, you have the ability to clean it while the race is going on.” Get an up close look at the racers during the MotoGP event April 10 – 12 at the Circuit of The Americas.

Five Austinites who inspire with a style all their own. chloe hooks / S t. S t e p h e n ’ s E p i s co pa l S c h o o l S e n i o r

Yes, she’s beautiful, but the glamorous granddaughter of Melba Whatley is much more than that. Currently deciding between colleges, the alum of the School of Ethics and Global Leadership in DC plans to double major in Theater and Public Policy. She is particularly interested in the pursuit of social impact theater and using the stage as a medium for change. How do you describe your style? I strive for a classic style with a contemporary twist and love to mix the old and new in unexpected ways. What are your three spring essentials? Mixed prints, blush, and crop tops that still leave a little to the imagination. What do you love about Austin style? Austin style is modernity: chic, real, and hip. Unique takes on trends are as diverse as the city itself and never fail to inspire.

d a r r e n g r i ff i n / freelance writer

Darren Griffin’s work as a writer may have led him everywhere from Japan to Israel, but it was penning a piece for his favorite basketball publication from childhood, Slam, that’s been the biggest career highlight so far. Since Darren can work from anywhere, his approach to style is solely based on his mood. He says: “That means one day it could be a Club Monaco shirt, Acne Jeans and Common Projects sneakers, and on another day an A.P.C. T-shirt, Public School denim and Air Jordan 1’s are more suitable.”

How do you describe your style? I’d say it’s birthed in classic menswear principles coupled with a strong street sensibility. The infusion of a good trend here and there, but only if it smartly accents those aforementioned qualities. I view style from a very uniformed lens. So I wear different variations of the same thing a lot. What are your three spring essentials? My insanely obsessive sneaker collection, favorite pairs of denim, and a couple tees in different fits/proportions. I can build from there. What do you love about Austin style? It’s freedom to be both good and bad. To be completely subjective with little to no subterfuge. So many places base good style on brand names, dollars spent, and breaking new trends. All of which is cool. Austin doesn’t do that, though. For lack of a more articulate explanation—Austin just does what it does. And I love it.

Before coming to Austin, Danielle worked alongside celebrated curator Carmen Gimenez in Madrid at the Guggenheim. Of that time, she says: “She’s a true inspiration and heavily impacted my visual aesthetic, and the way I ‘see’ the world.” When it comes to dressing for her Congress Avenue office digs, it all starts with the shoes. After the shoes are established, you can often find her clad in leather, cashmere or suede.

How do you describe your style? Very classic with an edge...sort of Annie Hall and the Hepburns, Audrey and Katharine, but with some Tilda Swinton in the mix. What are your three spring essentials? Acne dresses, white anything, especially jeans, and a good raincoat (I just bought one from Uniqlo men’s department). What do you love about Austin style? Great access to vintage. I recently bought an amazing old Levi’s jacket on South Congress that I love.

At just age 32, Chris is one of the youngest General Managers in all of Neiman Marcus and so far, he has worked at stores in Chicago, Palm Beach and San Diego. You can usually find him in a Isaia or Armani suit at work, and he loves discovering what shoppers in each city love. “It’s a big challenge, but also fun to learn each city and what each customer is looking for,” he says. “It always varies greatly based on lifestyle, climate, and community.”

How do you describe your style? Style to me is more than just what one chooses to wear. It’s about how one carries himself, and it’s in the details. When it comes to clothes, I would say I spend most of my days in a suit. I love pieces that have sentimental value—an old pair of my father’s Dunhill cufflinks, a watch from 1940s that belonged to my grandfather. When I am not at work, I love the comfort of a great broken-in pair of jeans and a T-shirt. I own over 100 tees. I can’t seem to part with any of them. My favorite is a Rolling Stones T-shirt from my very first concert. I’m always excited to see the season’s new trends, but I wouldn’t say that I follow them. As Yves Saint Laurent once said: “Trends fade, but style is eternal.” What’s your approach to dressing for work? I’m a huge fan of mixing patterns, plaids, polka dots, stripes. I love to throw in a dash of color, like pink socks or a violet pocket square. What are your three spring essentials? Sunblock—I spend a good amount of time on Lake Austin and outdoors, so sunblock is a must (I’m partial to Kiehls), Persol tortoise shell sunglasses (I’ve replaced the lenses several times, but I’ve had the same pair for over 10 years), and good manners, because they never go out of style. What do you love about Austin style? It is diverse, eclectic and ever-changing. Boho chic was a huge call out on the runways for Spring 2015, and I think of all the trends this one really resonates with the Austin client.

Seventh generation Texan Jessie Johnson grew up in Dripping Springs and likes to joke that her years living in NYC were like “Elly May Clampett goes to the Big Apple.” But we think the former fashion industry alum and effortlessly cool visual artist stands out from the crowd anywhere she goes. A mother of two, and the wife of musician Will Johnson, is at home in her role at Waterloo Records where she has helped play host to acts like Iggy and the Stooges, Emmylou Harris and Jimmy Cliff. Check out her artwork at jessiejohnsonart. wordpress.com. What are your spring style essentials? During SX, it was a cellphone and a pillow. I did just get some Doc Martens at a vintage shop. I know it’s a trend that will pass like all the others, but I’ve always wanted some, and as a kid, we couldn’t afford things like that. What do you love about Austin style? Everyone has the ability to find their true self. We have high end, awesome thrift and resale, as well as extremely well-curated vintage. Austinites have endless resources for any budget. Plus, the surrounding small towns are thrift/vintage gold mines. Growing up in Dripping Springs, we had one tiny thrift store, and it was this dark, dank building with everything in piles. Now we live in a world where you can get anything you want online! I still love the hunt. My ideal day off is going hunting at Prototype, Feathers Boutique, and Savers.

At Home in Elgin By Emma Banks | Photograph by Alyson Fox How Margo Sawyer, a celebrated artist who has lived all over the world, transformed

and how it inspires other people, and secondly, it always makes me wonder,

a historic building in Elgin into an inspiring, minimalist-meets-modern abode.

how in the hell did I pull that off?”

The essence of Margo Sawyer’s home does not live in her (quite enviable) collection of things. It’s in the space between that allows room for new thoughts, ideas, and creative compulsions to take flight. Her loft in downtown Elgin is open and expansive, with each carefully-curated piece of furniture in its place. But, Sawyer’s version of home life is about embracing an emptiness of sorts; the quietness that comes with minimal decor encourages that undefinable creative spirit within her to expand. “If a space is too visually busy, it’s distracting,” she says. “Emptiness is my inspiration. I’m always interested in bridging the gap between high art and function, in uniting the two.” As an artist, Sawyer sees her life in the same way that she sees her work, as

Synchronicity of Color is just the tip of the iceberg. Sawyer’s art has been exhibited all over the world, including New York, Japan, and India. She’s currently represented by the Holly Johnson Gallery in Dallas, and has another large-scale public installation piece titled Index for Contemplation on display at the Austin Convention Center. “The best compliment people can give me is spending a lot of time looking,” she says. “Not so much talking, but looking—slowing down, and taking time with [the art]. The great reward is stealing someone’s mind, to watch them wander.” Though she’s lived in Texas since 1988 and has called Elgin home for the past 12 years, Sawyer still loves to travel. Born in Washington, D.C. to a dip-

a place to express herself and fulfill her creative compulsions. She’s spent a lifetime doing just that: Sawyer grew up in Sussex, England before attending the Chelsea School of Art in London. She came to the States to earn her MFA in sculpture at Yale. Now, the artist has a laundry list of group and solo shows under her belt, and has been teaching sculpture in the Fine Arts department at the University of Texas since 1988. After living in Austin for a while, Sawyer decided she wanted to live in a small town. She considered living in Taylor, before deciding on Elgin.

Jackie Lee Young p hoto g r a p he r As a kid traveling back and forth between Texas and Saudi Arabia, Jackie Lee Young made a habit of smuggling issues of Vogue back to the Middle East. “I would roll them up in my jeans and stuff them into my suitcase just so I could study them and tape them onto my walls,” she says. “I didn't know what I was doing then. I was just a kid.” Years later and no longer “just a kid,” Young has grown into a successful photographer who has shot for leading publications such as Nylon and T Magazine. Her haunting, moody aesthetic has garnered a lot of attention and adoration on the web, and she is heralded as one of the most talented emerging fashion and snapshot photographers. She credits her aesthetic to the formative years she spent living in the Middle East during Desert Storm. Astonished by the environment change moving from Oklahoma, she felt the need to document the experience. “I was completely removed from Western popular culture as well, so I wanted to create my own. That meant following my friends around and shooting them, as well as my family.” After attending St. Edward’s University to study photography, Young fell in love with Austin and has called the city home ever since. Here she nurtures her photography passion, splitting her time between her two favorite subjects. “I feel like a lot of my work is split in half. One part travel based, very in tune with the idea of capturing the snapshot and images as they happen. The other part of it is very creatively directed, where it is planned out and has a distinct story that is stylized with wardrobe, hair and makeup with a directed concept,” Young says. “I love each part equally, and don't see myself or my work being successful without each part being nurtured.” t. mendoza

Fixe

S outher n cha r m meets d el icious f l avo r s in this new d owntown eatery.

W

hen I first laid eyes on Fixe, downtown’s new Southern restaurant, it was love at first sight. My heart raced as I passed the rocking chairs on its porchlike entrance. I swooned when I entered its labyrinth of rustically elegant dining rooms. And I got the vapors when I saw its bar: a substantial mesquite beauty inviting me to belly up, grab a stool, and linger—perhaps even dine. I sensed I was in a place for grown-ups who liked to have fun. Located in the lobby of the sleek new IBC Bank Tower, Fixe looks and feels terrific. But like many love affairs, my passion slightly waned when it was time to get serious. The menu perplexed me, but the friendly, polished staff quickly intervened and helped me find my way. Billing itself as "progressive southern," Fixe serves modern Louisiana cuisine with a dash of Dixie. Run by the team who founded the über-successful Eddie V’s, Fixe is a class act. Its bar is my new downtown favorite, and I suggest starting or ending (or both!) your

meal with one of its top-notch cocktails. (The wine and beer selection is almost as impressive.) If you order nothing else at Fixe, order the biscuits. They are to die for. Listed as an appetizer "snack", they come three to an order and any leftover should be wrapped-up, taken home, and eaten for breakfast the next day. Piping hot, they’re served with two sides for slathering: sweet homemade preserves and a savory n'duja sausage spread. Both are delicious, but I recommend getting a side of butter and keeping it simple. Other starters include crunchy sweet tea pickles, a tangy assortment of pickled veggies, plus upscale Southern stalwarts like deviled eggs and smoked fish. Small plates include boudin sausage with chowchow and onion crackers and beef tartare topped with crispy oysters. Grits take center stage with three seasonal offerings: one with meat, one with seafood, and one with veggies. For entrees, the pork shoulder is tender and moist, surrounded by potlikker pinto beans, mustard

greens and a jalapeño-kale emulsion. If you like dark meat, go with the buttermilk-battered fried chicken. There’s also duck breast with black-eyed pea cassoulet and veal brisket with sweet potato, marshmallow, foie gras and pecans. For seafood, decadent temptations include lobster and crawfish potpie and grouper topped with silky lardo. Somewhat lighter are the trout and blackened red snapper. Dessert means creative upscale versions of cheesecake, sweet potato pie, and lemon cake. Like any complicated relationship, I have mixed emotions about Fixe. I love its welcoming space, professional staff, tasty food and fabulous bar. On the other hand, I wish it had more accessible options for sharing and lighter eating. But those are minor quibbles I know its veteran team will rectify. Southern restaurants are popping up all over Austin, and I’ll visit most of them. But I have a hunch I’ll be going steady with Fixe for a nice, long time. k. spezia P h oto g r a p h y by b u f f s t r i c k l a n d
