SHOPPING: EVENINGWEAR

The sarcastic in me always runs away from the Holiday season (and everything linked to it). Not that I dislike it but that sudden obligation to look cute make me feel really weird. I do have to admit that it does help some of us struggling with the gentleman attire. So...

ART: CALVIN KLEIN + DAN FLAVIN

Calvin Klein, Dan Flavin and Raf Simons, three unconventional minds with the same desire to challenge the present and shape the future and now united by this art installation. We always talk about the controversy and sexualized campaigns but Calvin Klein’s world is defined by an insatiable need for perfection and effortless silhouettes....

SHOPPING: DSM x VANS U OLD SKOOL

Dover Street Market NY is gearing up for the Holiday season with multiple new drops coming out soon. You can now sign up for those cute Vans U Old Skool with a revisited check print. As always, quantities are limited so if you missed the previous release earlier this year,...

NOW: R.SWIADER FW16

I went to the movies this past weekend to see Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals. While I’m not completely sold on it, the cinematography is all along quite stunning, especially during the daytime scenes in Texas. The desolate plains filmed in the pure Western tradition reminded me the  romantic loneliness of R.Swiader fall winter...

ART: WES ANDERSON FOR H&M “COME TOGETHER”

Who would have expected H&M to invite Moonrise Kingdom’s director, Wes Anderson, to lens their new Holiday campaign starting the one and only Adrien Brody? I bet nobody! The four minute features Brody, as a very affected train conductor, announcing to his passengers that the snow will delay their journeys home for Christmas....

NOW: CITIZENS OF HUMANITY FW16

I have this ongoing conversation with one of my friends about what makes denim washes authentic. Difficult to actually find an answer as everyone seems to have their own idea of what make them relevant and cool but… all can certainly agree that the more natural and effortless looking the better. So here comes Citizens of Humanity. I...

TECH: PRYMA FOR CANALI

What can we expect to luxury headphones in a tech world where almost every single product has been perfected? Well, Pryma and Canali just offered a simple and obvious answer: craftsmanship, comfort and impeccable sound restitution. Thanks to Italian manufacturer of handcrafted speakers Sonus Faber, the Pryma headphones were designed as the ultimate headphones. Lightweight aluminum shell, ultra-soft...

NOW: MAISON KITSUNE FW16

The new Maison Kitsune Fall Winter collection embodies perfectly what the Parisian brand is about: a playful celebration of memories, a profound admiration for Japanese memorabilia and an obsession for traditional wardrobe. For this season, Maison Kitsuné pays homage to Hayao Miyazaki in acclaimed and his animated film The Wind Rises, with a series of playful patterns...

MJ+: MARC

Some unexpected events are forcing me post back to back two MJ+ series in a very long time and I have to admit that it’s actually really nice. Why? Because it offers the opportunity to dissect and digest one style, and maybe realize that, in our world of influencers and social media celebrities, some guys...

MJ+: MIKKO

Mikko is a chameleon. I don’t know anyone else capable of changing styles as often as he does and still look relevant and cool. He recently contacted me after coming back from Estonia where his friend Elina photographed him in his favorite seasonal pieces. I couldn’t help but post them as he offers a bold but still...

NOW: KENZO x H&M

When the news of Kenzo x H&M collection first broke out a few months ago, I was told that it will bold and fun. As you can see, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, the two masterminds behind Kenzo, went beyond everyone wildest expectations. This is a real visual explosion, a mix and match of wild prints,...

SHOPPING: COS FW16

Three words: softness within structure. Nothing less, nothing more. From the color palette to the fabrics, all pieces convey the same delicate touch, the same precision and the same romantic silhouette. Beige, light pink, purple and soft grey are playing an important part of the collection along subtle contrasts between nylon, wool and cotton. As...

SHOPPING: KNITWEAR FW16

Here we are again, layering up, covering up, and trying to stay cute as the the temperatures are dropping. To help you with that, I’ve handpicked a few knitwear pieces from MatchesFashion.com from Raf Simons, Balenciaga, Marni, Bottega Veneta, Alexander McQueen and Lanvin. As you can see, the “grandpa” style i.e. chunky, distressed  and slightly oversized is more than...

SHOPPING: INSTAPUMP FURY OVERBRANDED

Reebok’s InstaPump are enjoying a nice comeback. Considered as odo when they first launched in 1994 but then adopted by sneakerheads, they slowly lost momentum until our post normcore / 90’s picked up a couple years ago. I, somehow, always love their chunkiness and futurist silhouette, part sci-fi, part cubist. Strangely, neither Nike or Adidas ever designed similar...

SHOPPING: BOOTS FW16

I’m still on a summertime sadness mode, struggling abandoning my shorts, wearing a jacket when leaving for work, and yes, every morning, the same ritual, checking the weather app and hoping we will be good. Like most of you, I’ve switched wardrobes, slowly extracting all that winter stuff from ziplocs, boxes and storage. And then starts a fastidious inventory,...

SHOPPING: FRED PERRY LAUREL WREATH FW16

Fred Perry’s Laurel Wreath is all about the quintessential pieces who defined the brand right from its beginnings. Each collection revisits fragments of its long history (since 1952), focusing on craftsmanship and understated details. With its shades of black, charcoal, grey, and navy, its jacquard knit made of black and navy yarns, or its waffle-knit textures, the new fall winter collection...

SHOPPING: ACNE STUDIOS OUTERWEAR FW16

We love Acne Studios for this quirky and unconventional way of playing with traditional codes and flirt with concepts while remaining utterly wearable. The most recent outerwear collections were all very clean and chic but were missing this “je ne sais quoi”. So it’s with a certain excitement that I’m presenting this new fall winter. First, the proportions, all exaggerated, disproportionate,...

NOW: A COLD WALL

Streetwear has become the synthesis of art and fashion, creating a new genre, a support for creative directors, good or bad, engaged or not, master of communications or/and real thinkers. Streetwear is graphic design, photography, fonts, textures, music, performances, installations. All are part of the same vision, the same desire to establish a dialogue, to...

SHOPPING: COS × AGNES MARTIN GUGGENHEIM

Rare, I believe, the collaboration between fashion labels and museums (besides some overpriced t-shirts here and there). So the news of this unexpected collaboration between the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York and COS for the Agnes Martin retrospective makes it definitely unique. This capsule collection is also the occasion for the COS design team to...
NOW: RABBITHOLE

NOW: RABBITHOLE

Rabbithole is one of these brands with almost no digital imprint. London-based and founded in 2010, Rabbithole went through different iterations before looking that cool. You might find here and there a few images from previous collections but nothing really noticeable until, I believe, this new collection. We always praised NYC as the Mecca of streetwear. It’s...
NOW: SUNNEI

NOW: SUNNEI

It’s always interesting to observe how brands evolve and what they actually are about. From their first collection for SS15 to their most recent (SS17), Sunnei’s evolution is truly mesmerizing. Loris Messina and Simone Rizzo, the two designers, seem to have aggregated (or learned) what’s a cool brand is about nowadays. From a revisited soft tailoring slightly influenced by...
