When we are developing ideas for new Pyknic designs and goods here, I think the dream end goal is being able to create something timeless. The true measure of success, to me at least, is creating something that will transcend a point in time. Take Seinfeld for example. It first aired in 1989 (when the "world wide web" was first created) and it is still both popular and culturally relevant today.
Of course while the mission, not everything we think up is special enough to have that type of longevity even though, I can promise, it always comes from a good place. Some stuff we think up won't even leave the ground. There is a digital folder, or two, of unused final versions of artwork that will never see the light of day. More tangibly, I have notebooks, paper bills, and napkins full of serial killer-esque sketches archived.
At the other end of this spectrum, there are things that are "of-the-moment" as NYLON defines it. Self-explanatory. Our intention was never to create something that would pander to trends or fads. But if one of our goods is deemed good enough to be representative of this current climate we're at now culturally by a relevant publication such as NYLON Magazine, I'll embrace that... especially due to the fact that we're giving LASAGNA a bigger platform, a dish totally underrated in the food community at this point in time. Your welcome Lasagna.

The costume devised from our pizza creations was Instagram celebrity, The Fat Jewish (@thefatjewish).
Recently Playboy's Cyber Girl of the Year, Khloë Terae (@khloe) and Cyber Girl of the Month, Stefanie Knight (@stefanieknight), recently rolled up to the First Slice Media Pizza Festival in Beverly Hills decked out in our infamous Pizza Bikini. Billed as the "World's Largest Pizza Party" with acts like Steve Aoki, Tyga, and 2Chainz, it was not going to be a proper pizza party without the Pyknic Pizza Bikini!

Feast your eyes on our infamous Pizza Bikini gracing the cover of INKED: a culture, style, art, and tattoo magazine. Bonnie Rotten is featured on the cover, which is an ode to the classic Coppertone Sunscreen girl advertisements. The Coppertone Girl never had a pizza bikini but the dog yanking the back of the bottoms would have certainly approved!

Our Homeslice Tank was just included in this weekend's (Sunday, August 2, 2015) edition of the NY Daily News in both digital and print. The Style section had a spread on "letter-perfect styles to look hot, yet cool" for summer. You can find the digital article HERE and pick up your own Homeslice "Slightly Cropped" Tank HERE.
Our friends over at BUST recently just featured our "Weekends are for Waffles" tank in both in their June/July 2015 Issue (on newsstands now) as well as on their website. It was selected because it was not only cute but allows for some sideboob, as Bust puts it: "This summer is all about pits and tits, thanks to tanks with super-low-cut necks and armholes. And with these sweet sets, you can wave your hands in the air like you just don’t care that they can see your underwear." Couldn't have said it any better if we tried!
It's truly an honor to have been featured in VOGUE's Beyonce's #LoveWins Instagram Has Us Reaching for Rainbow Looks All Over Again article that was based around all the rainbow outfits the Queen Bee wore to celebrate #LoveWins / SCOTUS. Our Sprinkles Bikini had made the cut at #15.
