NOW: CHRISTOPHER KANE FW14

I’m still trying to figure out why I’ve never featured Christopher Kane before as his collections represent accurately the British exuberance for which I have particular affection. For this Fall Winter season, Christopher turned things up with a major emphasis on tailoring. As expected, the silhouette is sharp, with playful twists from vinyl treatments, geometric...

Bomber jackets are a must-have. Their slim fit, whether they stick to a military style or are updated with new features (textures, fabrics, colors…), offer to almost anyone a cool and sexy silhouette.

The new Fall Winter season marks a new direction for Camper with former Mugler designer Romain Kremer as a creative director.

The classic Pelotas for example, Camper’s iconic shoe, has received a futuristic treatment with a nylon like material or glossi soft...

NOW: HENTSCH MAN FW14

NOW: HENTSCH MAN FW14

Looking at the new Hentsch Man Fall Winter collection, I can’t help but think of Alexia’s interview published here last summer. She was confessing her desire to offer the perfect piece with the perfect fit before expanding her collections. She’s clearly reached that moment and a new level of maturity. Paradoxically, her new Hentsch Man hasn’t...

SHOPPING: REEBOK CLASSIC LEATHER NIGHT

Reebok just released these really cool leather sneakers with an iridescent snake print along with a black/white speckle sole. I really like this new take, adding a fun reinterpretation to this classic. It’s also quite rare to see sportswear brands using this material (besides sometimes Nike) so it’s clearly worth the attention.
