Though one half of formerly NYC-based label Vena Cava now resides in LA, designers Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock aren't letting geographic distance put a damper on their creativity. The duo have kept extremely busy, debuting their own horror flick and producing new collections with the help of business partner LF USA.
The latest channel for the duo's intensely addictive '90s-era energy? Issue 3 of their homemade zine, 'Zina Cava, which just landed on the shelves at TenOverSix. It is, surprisingly, dedicated to all things housekeeping. Of course, we're not talking Lysol and Latex gloves. The VC girls have filled the pages with inspiring interiors, kooky recipes like squirrel stew and more. They've even tapped their uber-chic family and friends for anecdotes, tips and tricks to achieve a clean (and cool) abode. Pick it up now at TenOverSix on Melrose or go to the duo's Tumblr for an inside peek—Alexis Brunswick
