Perfectly Imperfect is a newsletter about what people are into, and a few times a week we ask guests to share a taste of their taste with our readers.
If an ever-evolving cultural time capsule of interesting individuals and what they’re into sounds cool to you, you’re in for a real treat ❤️🤘😁
Perfectly Imperfect invites a wide berth of New York artists, writers, intellectuals, and scenesters to spiral on bits of personal ephemera, consciously rejecting the endless algorithmic scroll.
- Interview Mag
By showcasing the aesthetics, technologies, and even humor bubbling around various contemporary scenes, the newsletter is less about directing you on how to kit out your own life with the “right” goods, and more about cataloging the various flotsam of our time
- Vanity Fair
Perfectly Imperfect has offered a window into the changing guard of New York City’s downtown scene with a deceptively simple premise: Cool people like cool things.
- The New York Times
Perfectly Imperfect is an anthropology project from Tyler Bainbridge and Alex Cushing.
