NYFW: Public School FW 13

I believe NYC based menswear designers Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow of Public School will be the ones to watch not only this season and for menswear, but in the future. The up and coming duo is definitely a new wave of attitude and with their FW 13 presentation this past week, cool is definitely what they represent. The ensembles that stood out during the presentation quickly translated downtown with slim trousers, deconstructed jackets in mixed medias, wide brimmed fedoras, and patent leather creepers. I love the layered shorts with pants look...GIMMIE GIMME GIMMIE.

NYFW: 3.1 Phillip Lim FW 13

PL is probably one of the most highly anticipated shows of the season, and for good reason. It's one of the biggest and baddest street chic brands in the game with a huge and heavy cult following. This season was just as drool worthy as it's spring collection, with lots of knee high boots, leather skirts, sweaters in mohair, chandelier earrings, and beyond amazing coats in shearlings and leathers. Overall the collection was street smart, chic, and down right badass. Going GOO GOO GAH GAH...

NYFW: Mark McNairy New Amsterdam FW 13

Masks are a great way to get people's attention, but I think Mark McNairy caught a lot of people's attention when he sent down his downtown contemporary collection down the runway. It was fun, classic, and fresh with a twist of street. I've been into a lot of non-fussy, easy, but well tailored street inspired clothes lately. I enjoyed the mix of prints from polka dots, plaids, to camouflage, he definitely had variety. Chu like?!

Doutzen Kroes for Vogue Germany

A minimal styled editorial is always the best way to showcase 1) the clothes 2) the model's purest canvas. I never really appreciated Doutzen Kroes's beauty until now. Spring is all about the colors black and white, and the ruffle detail. MAYJAH.

Miu Miu Tales 5 – “The Door”

I've been a Gabrielle Union and Goapele fan for awhile, so I was happy to see them both star in Miu Miu's latest short film, The Door. Bravo.
