Then & Them

I’m spending most of my free time right now reading about Them and looking at Then.  Both books capture the incredible life of Alexander Liberman, the genius Editorial Director of Condé Nast for many years.  The combination of these two books (plus The Artist in His Studio) provide an all encompassing insight into his life in a way that I’ve seen very few artists presented.

My New Obsession….Color!

I’ve never really worn color.  Maybe it’s the good mood I’m in but I can’t stop buying boldly colored knits and tees to brighten my army of serious military green coats.   It also might’ve been the Chuck Close documentary I recent watched again.  You can’t look at his work without being inspired by color.

Vintage Armani

 

I’ve never seen a video of Giorgio Armani from when he was so young.

The Sartorialist for H.E. by Mango

Recently I had the opportunity to shoot the Fall ad campaign for H.E. by Mango.

 

I don’t know how they do it, but H.E. is offering very very good style at a very very good price, which is all that you could ever really ask from a brand.  Recently, far after this project was completed, I was at their SoHo store and bought a beautiful, dark brown suede jacket for $149. Next week, I’ll take a picture and share it with you.

My Best Buy from Kiev

I had forgotten that Azzedine Alaia spent his early years designing the flight suits for the Ukranian Air Force….or maybe I just made that up. Whatever the case, if I can lose 4 more pounds, I know what I’ll be wearing for Halloween this year.

 

So do I wear this with a flat or a heel?
