Midnight Sun

Attempt number two with the often lauded, often failing in the delivery department mythical little black dress.

Cry About It

Shivering me timbers, but not really because for once I pulled this hoodie out of its bag and stopped playing. Serious winter layering ahead.

Denim Desserts

The last time that I wore more than one piece of denim I was in New York freezing my ass off. Fast forward to this year, I'm still freezing my ass off in a less chic locale and looking for a bear to cosign my sartorial savvy.

Becozy

There is nothing better than a sweater that yells I am a cold blob - but I am cozy (and chic) blob!

Niabi

I happen to think that the lighting that evokes the romantic feelings akin to those in a midsummer nights dream always happens in the fall.

A few weeks ago Niabi and I took two hours to shoot four different looks across the city.

Blank Face

This look is one part typical i.e. the all black from head to toe, while deviating from my norm with a more romantic silhouette.

Suddenly

I've always really really loved the items that Gelline has in her closet, especially those for the colder months of the year. Her style as we've seen in the past is very classic - with a twist. I like to think that her closet is one part Blair Waldorf and 2 parts Astrid Leong (for those of you who have read Kevin Kwan's novel). The result is subtle, chic and simply Gelline.

Shoe Game:

1) The biggest trend to supposedly  seep out of men's fashion in the last five years, with origins in black/hood culture

2) What makes you rate a guy based on his face and kicks subsequently

A little background before we dive in. There is more that gives sneaker culture depth and diversity, but that's a discussion for another time. At the present moment sneakers occupy a huge part of our collective psyche as a society in the west. Limited edition releases, releases and general restocks have come to the forefront of my mind in the last three years. This is a two part series where I talk to two of guys I know who are killing the game, and have shifted how I see shoes. These guys are very normal, they are not so called fashion insiders, every shoe you see them wear has been earned; not through connections per se but through hard work, planning and saving. Below you will find my candid conversation with Christian on how he sees sneaker culture as a whole as well as his part in it. 

Let's dive in.

The Next Act

Watching her move felt powerful because I was being drawn into her space. However throughout the whole process I could feel a barrier between us. The space wherein I a non dancer could not reach her - and didn't need to.

The Next Act

Talking about sheer garments, the emphasis is often on how to use this trend/style without being cliche. This is all well and good but...
