exploring what it means to be the modern man.

My love for warm khakis and earthy tans, and browns adorned in glitter continues. How does Hedi Slimane always know what you want, before you even know you want it? As trendy as this is.. there’s just something about it that draws you in. Could it be LA calling me back?

Finally, Burberry announced that it would cease to follow the broken fashion model of showing runway collections six months before they are produced and shoppable to the public. Tom Ford followed suit, along with a slew of other designers trying to ride the see-now-buy-now wave that is clearly the future of the industry. Yes, there are tons of questions still left unanswered – I can hear PR and edit asking, “How will we secure/feature in long lead?” and other questions of the like. If there is any company to do it, it would be Burberry, and they continue to generate press season after season. I am crazy interested to see how this appeals to consumers come fall, and how it will help the retail business survive tight times.

Speaking of, if only the mens shows were shoppable this season, I would have definitely picked up one of these cuddly teddy bear coats (and in tan!). Embracing more and more color as seasons pass..

Still crushing on LA atm, so hard that I even looked into flights leaving Friday, because I just found out that I have President’s Day (Monday) off. But flights are $$$. Dilemma!

want // gucci loafers.

Not the super-I-see-them-everywhere-popular fur ones (even though they are still on my mind). These are perfect for spring. Dreaming of white jeans, bare ankles and these pair.

Another sign that Gucci is going through a moment: Bergdorf has re-committed to the brand. Curious to see how Michele’s designs affect the bottom line in the next few seasons. Though I did stop by the store at GSP and I was the only person in the store..
