Blackbird Spyplane is your no. 1 source for “unbeatable recon” into style & culture, by journalist Jonah Weiner and design scout Erin Wylie.
We interview interesting people … celebrate small makers … and unearth vintage gems across the worlds of fashion, culture & design … while identifying cool trends, pondering profound questions, and rounding up sick under-the-radar finds… 2x a month we publish Concorde, which you could call our “women’s sletter” except it’s for everyone. Other times? We do incredible things that haven’t even been invented yet.
You can read a New Yorker story about us here, a Vanity Fair profile about us here, a profile of us in The New York Times here, and a story about us in The Guardian here. There’s also a Blackbird Spyplane story about us here. 😉
