When we hear about a tech-themed social event the last thing we go to is fashion… think of the Silicone Valley dudes. This year’s Met Gala theme, “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology”, gave us visions of Mad Max meets Tron set in Las Vegas. The true impetus behind the night’s theme was to celebrate the artistry of hand-made craftsmanship within Haute Couture vs. the ingenuity and technology of machine-made garments. The spectacular fashion-frenzied event ushers in the year’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute exhibit (running May 5th – August 14, 2016) and re-energizes the buzz around the historical importance and relevance of fashion in our society.

The traditional après ski boot–the quintessential 1970’s longhair goat moon boot (aka: Yeti)–is getting a reboot (sorry for the play on words!), thanks in part to hipsters and would-be jetsetters who can’t get enough of this retro style. With expectations of a cold and snowy winter, this look promises to be one of the hottest […]
What is it about sable that instinctively hooks people at first glance? Is it the opaqueness of the fur, the frothiness of the silky hair, the lusciousness of its color? Let’s face it, sable is the granddaddy of all furs! What is surprising, though, is how popular this costly fur is nowadays. It is everywhere it […]
The 1940s are back in style, or have they ever left? It seems as if this style keeps reviving itself time after time and always seems to stay current with only a few minor alterations.

The European shows for Men’s Spring/Summer 2018 have wrapped and it’s time to break down the key trends.

I recently had a conversation with a friend who was repping a line of hand painted denim jeans and jean jackets that sold for $750 – $1500 and it got me to thinking, just how did “regular jeans” transition from a workday staple into luxury fashion phenomena? Luxury fashion and denim streetstyle trends are trending […]
“The secret to modeling is not being perfect. What one needs is a face that people can identify in a second. You have to be given what’s needed by nature, and what’s needed is to bring something new.”—Karl Lagerfeld— Before there was the persona of the “Supermodel”, there were fashion models who were super just […]
