We shipped Toronto-based Crystal Castles into the Nevada desert last week for a Magic Trade show dance party hosted by boosted and The FADER. With '90s warm-up set courtesy of Roxy Cottontail and Staccato and full-on dance breakouts from Flosstradamus, there were many a floor-shaking roof-raising moment to be had. And mid-through CC's performance--cross our hearts!--the roof of the Moon nightclub, a new spot that sits right atop the Palms hotel, did literally roll back for a hot second to let off all that pent-up party steam. Pre-dancing mayhem we took a turn around the Boosted "Streetwear Lounge" at Magic for a mini-tour of their new accessories collection. Our favorite picks of the season include a rather fetching new collaboration with Claw (the red and black fanny pack is the definitely the ticket) and zebra-covered backpacks in soft pastel.
