Barrett Penny Loafers, Milan

I love the idea of “penny loafers” but the shape is always too rounded and rarely makes a “good foot” (as Garance would say).  I thought this pair at the new Barrett shop in Milan (via Gesu, 9) were the best version of a penny loafer I’ve seen in a while.

Don’t Ask Phil Oh for Packing Advice, Milan

In the rush to pack for a three-city fashion week whirlwind, Phil, Oh a.k.a. Streetpeeper, packed his favorite mittens. Or what he thought were his mittens, but turned out to be one mitten and one sock  :(

(Sorry his face is a little out of focus, I was laughing so hard I couldn’t hold the camera still.)

Jacobs by Marc Jacobs for Marc by Marc Jacobs

I bought this because it’s a great price for cashmere crew neck, but honestly, maybe more for the wonderful absurdity of the label itself.

REPOST: On the Street….. Washington St., New York

A commenter wrote

“John Berger said that art is no longer when creation oversteps the inherent bounds of its media. Such is the case here – proportion, coherence, harmony be damned.”

 

Why would you want coherence and harmony from youth?

Youth is about mashing, breaking and reassembling life to find new answers for your generation.

 

That’s one of the reasons youth moves fashion, they haven’t found their harmony yet, and I’m thankful for that.

Simone in New York Introducing FRASI by Simone Righi

My good friend Simone Righi was in town last week and of course I had to take him for some classic American cuisine.

 

He was in New York to work with private clients for his new collection Frasi By Simone Righi. I’m very happy to see Simone take this next step in his career by creating a collection that captures the spirit of his exquisite personal style.

On the Street…..The Best of London, London

London street fashion is way over the top right now.  Over the top in color and over the top in referencing the 80′s and 90′s.  I really think the is one of the best “looks” I’ve seen here so far because of the simplicity, subtlty of the color, and pattern and texture mixing.

J.Crew Fall/Winter 2013

 

By now everyone knows I’m a huge Dries Van Noten fan. I love the way he mixes color, pattern, textures, and cultures. I’m really starting to feel the same way about J.Crew.

 

Just look at their recent Fall 2013 presentation; it’s like a classroom of fashion. This is an education on how to work all the best elements of design into a very pretty package.

 

Don’t believe me? Try this: print these pictures, hang them on your wall upside down and I bet you’ll still be totally inspired from just the color and pattern mixing.   Read the rest of this entry »

Robert Geller Fall/Winter 2013

Robert Geller could be one of the most interesting men’s shows during New York Fashion Week.

 

The most fascinating aspect to Robert Geller’s collection this season is his unique approach to layering. For instance, in the seventh photo, he’s layered a red striped knit over a polka dot shirt and a wool knit mesh jersey. He’s also managed to combine horizontal and vertical striping in a seamless way.

 

In another example, the quilted coat styled underneath the belted cardigan, he has almost created a singular coat by using two seemingly separate pieces.

Snow Prep…. Brian Trunzo

 

We just faced a beastly snow storm, what was your approach to trekking out in the weather for the shows?

 

Assuming money was no object, would you take your Ferrari out in a blizzard, or would you bust out the Range Rover?  No brainer, right?  Sure, I could throw on a pair of cordovan boots with dainite soles and a down puffer over-blazer to fight the elements, but would I really want to do that?  Instead, I’ll probably just dig up the old, beat up Bean boots and grab a pair of heavy duty socks, some interesting sweatpants (everybody loves a pair of dope sweatpants these days) and a fur-lined parka.  I was at Paris Fashion Week in the snow a few weeks ago and tried to stay tailored; this time, I showed up super cozy.

Fashion Week Q&A…. Angelo Flaccavento

What was your favorite collection this season?

 

I have a hard time choosing just one collection.

 

I found the morning-after, lazy mood at Dries Van Noten very welcoming and reassuring. There was that just-rolled-out-of-the-bed, carefree and haphazardly put together quality to most outfits that I find exhilarating. It’s like when you get the perfect outfit choosing at random: it happens once in a while, but when it does it’s a bang, and I love it.

 

I appreciated the militaristic sexiness of Rick Owens, too. The collection, with those tuft of fur on jackets and mittens had a wild mountain flavor to me, or better, a primal feel: real cavemen living in snowy woods covering themselves with what nature has to offer. Fast, furious and effective: it does not get any better, when you’re put in front of the fury of the elements.

 

What was your favorite look?

 

I liked the 70s-gone-abstract broken suit from Raf Simons: the layering and the colors are gorgeous, and that band that crosses the chest like a scalpel-point marker stroke is just insane. All the elements are classic, but totally out of place, and this gets my mind going.

Preview….. Public School F/W’13

Tell us something interesting about the collection that we won’t learn during the presentation.

 

“It always winds up that a sketch we really don’t love, turns out to be one of the best pieces of the season. It has become a ritual that if Maxwell and I both hate a sketch, we make sure to push it through sampling because we know it will somehow turn out to be a winner. That’s what happened with our wool bomber for A/W 13 [in picture one.]

 

We didn’t like it because it didn’t feel like a Public School piece. That’s usually why we don’t like something, if it’s a stretch for us or something that doesn’t inherently feel like the Public School DNA. We always want to be true to our aesthetic which is very downtown New York.”

The Independents….. Fantastic Man

I saved Fantastic Man for last in this series because I think it’s the last word in independent men’s magazines.

 

I’ve watched Gert and Jop evolve their work into a magazine that has maintained its original vision while still opening new doors of creativity. What I love about the magazine is that it isn’t edgy or avant-garde, but it always keeps me on my toes and always seems to challenge my perception of what a man should want to look like. In that way, I feel they lead the charge in moving men’s fashion forward.

 

It’s also one of the few men’s magazines that I actually read more than one or two of the articles. And don’t get me started on the photography. The current issue, which stars a huge editorial by Alasdair McLellan shot all over the British Isles, was the most brilliant men’s editorial of the entire fall/winter season. For the ladies, The Gentlewoman is on the same trajectory.
