Preview Cifonelli Fall/Winter 2015

12415john5983My good friend John Vizzone working late before the Cifonelli Fashion Show. It’s great to see his modern American design sensibility leading one of Paris’s oldest tailoring houses.

The Place to Be: is at 2-1-3.

It’s always a treat

When our paths should meet

Across the floor at Colette.

Many a store

Can cause such a bore,

But with colette it is always a treat.

Pal Zileri Fall/Winter 2015

11515palC0624The fall collection of the relaunched Pal Zileri was teased at last night behind a veiled screen. What was obvious was a new sleeker and more modern silhouette and sensibility.

 

It will be interesting to see the details at a re-see later this week.11515palC062711515PalC0612web Read the rest of this entry »

Marni Runway Show…Fall/Winter 2015

11515marniB3747So happy to see Marni back on the runway.

 

Marni really offers somthing unique. A unique take on menswear. Consuelo Castiglioni’s eye for proportion and color is something that seperates her from her contemporaries like Prada, Valentino, and Lanvin. I hope this is the return of Marni to the menswear runway scene.11515marniB371911515marni3858

Amankora, Punakha, Bhutan

What a cool room.

 

All the rooms — in all five Amankora lodges in Bhutan — are exactly the same: minimal, natural, and light-filled..

 

There’s no TV in the room which means that instead of waking up and robotically grabbing the remote and turning on CNN; you order French-pressed coffee, sit on the cushioned windowsill and watch the sun rise over the your Himalayan valley. It’s like forced sincerity; it takes a few moments for a plugged-in, media-type like me to get use to, but once you surrender, it’s very sweet.

This whole look was about maroon and blue,  This coat was so dramatic because, although it may appear black and white,  the contrast between the deep, bloodish maroon and crisp, stark white was such a fresh surprise.

Gold Heels & Grey Hosiery, oh how you have been forgotten!

1515_GreytightsandSocks

This was such a good pairing!

 

Now it seems that so many great hosiery/heel combos have been tossed aside for leggings and sneakers. So sad!! This was so chic.

The Reading List….Art of Armor

artofarmor_gifHow amazing are these Samurai Costumes?

 

This was one of the coolest things I saw on my trip to LA this Fall. The Japanese Samurai exhibit at¬†LACMA¬†was SO cool that I needed to share some of the images from the book with you. You can’t imagine the detail of this Armor unless you see these pieces in person.

 

The most unexpected thing I saw was the shoelace sort of trim they wove in and out of the armor. Such a simple material but it was woven so intricately and in the most beautiful colors, that it ended up looking so rich. I could totally see these pieces inspiring  great weaving details for the runway.

The Best of The Sartorialist 2014

I loved the happy accident of this gentleman passing by as I snapped a photo of this charming young woman.

 

As I look back on 2014, it’s so interesting to see menswear and womenswear become more and more similar.
