After Ryn Weaver's spot-on performance at The FADER FORT Presented by Converse in New York this past Saturday, she readjusted the nest of lace atop her hair and opened her purse. Like her music, the bag was a no-bullshit portrait of an imperfectly powerful woman. Alongside a photo strip of her with collaborator Benny Blanco, there's powder and brushes, cherry Hi-Chew, a just-in-case tampon, lace gloves, bobby pins, and one show-stopping mask.
