MFW: CANALI FW15 PREVIEW

“Lines are an essential part of everything. I design one line at a time, studying and moving them to craft the motif or silhouette that I have imagined – abstract stripes, oversized checks, cropped proportions. Signature elements shift and evolve, resulting in coherent and relaxed ensembles that are unexpectedly refreshing” said recently...

WANT LES ESSENTIELS DE LA VIE FW14

WANT LES ESSENTIELS DE LA VIE FW14

It can be strenuous to find in this overly saturated accessories market a simply designed bag, the one you will have for a while, with unique trendy details, but not excessively loud or expensive. Launched in 2006 in Montreal, Byron and Dexter, the two of the co-founders behind WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie, have consciously...

SHOPPING: MYKITA MYLON COLLECTION

Mykita Mylon series is certainly the most avant-garde and complex technology on the market right now. Made of layers of super-fine polyamide powder turned via CO2 laser sintering (some sort of thermo collage) into three-dimensional objects, the Mylon technology offers infinite creative possibilities and extremely lightweight and seamless frames. The new Glacier collection elevates the traditional mountain climbing eyewear mixing classic silhouettes with...

INTERVIEW: NOAH WAXMAN

INTERVIEW: NOAH WAXMAN

Noah Waxman is not your regular guy and definitely not your typical shoe designer. His background, beside his love for shoes, has nothing to do with fashion. He came out as a designer a bit by accident and ever since he’s been sincerely devoted to create a beautiful and contemporary shoe. In less than two...

SHOPPING: COMME DES GARCONS PLAY

We all need a Comme des garcons Play t-shirt (or polo shirt) in our wardrobe. They are fun, sometimes quirky, no-brainer and most importantly they will always make you look cool (just in case you needed more credit!). And with a price range between $105 and $150, they also make the perfect gift! Check out my favorite styles...

Finally a new Nike Sportswear Escape Pack! While Nike has released similar Escape pack since 1988, it has been a moment since we had a such exciting one. For the occasion, Nike updated four of its classics, the Air Max 1, the Air Max 90, the Air Max 95 and the Internationalist Mid in earthy leathers. The result is elegant layering of creamy...

SHOPPING: MIAMI ART BASEL EDITION

Miami Art Basel starts today transforming the entire city into a cultural hub jam-packed with jet setters, fashion editors and eventually art critics. Since some of the resort collections are already available on my eshop, I’m using this opportunity to feature some of my favorites including (left to right) Christopher Kane, Orlebar Brown, Robinson les Bains,...
NOTE: THE ODD AND THE BEAUTIFUL - PART 2

NOTE: THE ODD AND THE BEAUTIFUL – PART 2

Fashion’s voracious appetite for images and more specifically good-looking people has often reduced street style to its narcissistic and decorative functions. While I can’t contest it (my job is also to compliment people’s looks), I’ve never limited myself to this role. Observing and documenting are the main reasons I started MonsieurJerome.com three years ago. I...

It feels really good to see the second collection of my friends Alex and Will finally out. We often forget how difficult it can be for young designers to finance and produce new work while maintaining a specific aesthetic and quality. Since launching XXBC in 2012, things have gotten undeniably better. Their Collection Two marks a departure from their...

SHOPPING: PRADA NEXT

After a first series released last spring, Prada just launched five new colorways of their iconoclast Prada Next. While they might look at first as a departure from the classic Prada sneaker, the Next is a continuation of Muccia Prada’s obsession for architecture, industrial design and technical materials. Behind the chunky features lay a desire...

NOW: CARVEN FW14

Carven has a long and tumultuous history. Created in 1945 just after WW2, Carven for decades was one of the most successful and savvy “masons” in France, with Dior launching perfumes and accessories along with Haute Couture and ready-to-wear collections years before anybody else. Things got a bit complicated and the company lost a bit...

NOW: CARLOS CAMPOS FW14

Honduran-born, New York-based designer Carlos Campos is one of my favorite designers showing during NYFW. Unlike many NY brands obsessing more with streetwear (Hood by Air or KTZ just to name a few), Campos is discretely building a serious body of work mixing traditional tailoring and personal influences. For this winter, he went back to...

Launched in 2013 in Bergen, Norway, Kaibosh sells mostly through their website to keep their prices as low ast possible while focusing on their collections, an original mix of extravagant and...
