Amazing shoot for Vogue Portugal

Model - Isa Asklo

This peacoat is from a newcomer, a Korean brand called Wooyoungmi. Beautifully designed double breasted coat, epaulettes, tap collar, single vent, buttoned cuffs. Just all around great job done on this coat. I don’t know why the went the wool blend route, with 70% wool, 20% nylon, and 10% cashmere. Just sounds like a weird choice of composition, throwing a cheap man made fiber in with wool and cashmere doesn’t really make sense but either way its a great looking piece. Only available at select locations in the us, Mr. Porter’s got em. $980

This is a gorgeous messenger bag from Marc by Marc Jacobs. Sleek design, textured leather, polished silver hardware, enough pockets to hold everything you own. Great piece and all things considered, the price isn’t too bad either. $500 at Mr. Porter.

All over print Goyard clothes and wallpaper…. looking like 80’s Dapper Dan creation.


Model - Monica Leal

Givenchy’s “American Dream”… 100% cotton crew neck, ribbed cuffs and collar. $560 at Riccardi.

I love shoots that contrast black and white with color pieces, brings a whole new level of depth for the observer.

I know this is may come as a surprise to the few who have been reading my blog, but I am actually denoting an entire post to a specific J. Crew product. I came across this shirt hanging at my tailors shop while I was getting some clothes done and it was love at first sight. I had no idea who made it (which probably helped my initial reaction) but from the second I saw it, I knew I had to have it. You probably think I’m nuts, but these pictures do it no justice, it’s a beautiful shirt, a beautiful pattern, and its beautifully tailored, from the stitching to the gussets, they did a great job. I bought one that night. $65 at J.Crew. (it’s in the secret wash section)

Here’s a new piece from one of my new favorite design houses, AMI by Alexandre Mattiussi. Following the seasons color trends, here is a beautiful oxblood (close enough) flannel wool shirt. Tailored to look like a standard OCBD, however works as the perfect over-shirt, and in that beautiful hue, would add depth and refinement to nearly any casual ensemble. $435 at Mr. Porter.

This is Boglioli’s S/S 2013 look book, and as you can see, they make absolutely beautiful garments. This Italian design house has made a name for itself by making gorgeous clothes with the finest materials available, yet in a lighter weight composition. So for all those living in warmer climates, you would be foolish not to invest in some Boglioli suiting, for you will have a 4 season suit that is impeccably made. For those in colder climates, you should move.

Shots fired…

Italian design firm Santambrogio ( Carlo Santambrogio & Ennio Arosic) have developed 2 houses entirely constructed of blue hued glass. The architecture and the design/glass work is absolutely stunning. Now who the hell would live here is a whole other conversation.
