NYFW STREETSTYLE DAY 2: CAMO MEMO

9.14.2014



Guess who got the camo memo this NYFW? It finally caught up to me this season - all thanks to G-Star RAW for creating the most desirable, digital camo print - reversible! -  bomber jacket yet (oh yeah - there's a parka version too). I also had the opportunity to see their newest Ocean's collection in partnership with Pharrell. It was pretty sickening for something designed to benefit a great cause - can't wait to show you some footage we captured at the presentation! There were also some unexpected trends on the runways this season - so you seriously won't want to miss out.

Since we're still sifting quite a bit of content from our NYFW experience and coverage at the menswear shows, outfit posts will have to fill in the void for now.  Hope you guys won't get tired of seeing me all plastered over the site!

However, in the rare case that you do - head on over to Who What Wear's feature on the best  menswear style bloggers (including your's truly). It completely surprised us when we saw it - I can't imagine ever being on that list without your endless support. Thanking you all from the bottom of my heart.

NYFW STREETSTYLE DAY 1: THE FUTURE IS NOW

9.11.2014



In the midst of hopping from fashion shows and hotels to being street-snapped around the city, we finally have a moment to wind down and post a quick update on the blog!

It's been a whirlwind of a time here in New York City so far, and this has definitely been our busiest season yet - we've attended a record of more than 15 shows and presentations with a few more to come during our remaining days. The amount of content acquired is astronomical - so please give us a few days to digest and deliver the best highlights possible!

In the meantime, I want to briefly discuss the outfit that has caused quite some commotion here at NYFW. That outfit is the one you see above. Yes, with the KTZ x Linda Farrow helmet sunglasses. I've always been insistent on the idea of self-expression to the fullest, and with this particular ensemble - I wanted to push that even further. The idea of embracing provoking eyewear, pleated kilts, drapy tank tops and sleeveless blazers accompanied by unisex jewelry is nothing new but still so exciting to me. Simply for the fact that these pieces are readily available now. We can keep predicting what the future of menswear will be on and on, but I strongly believe that future is now. Now's the time to keep a sartorial open mind, embrace the newness and make some bold decisions. And just have fun with it.

BLACK, WHITE AND BLONDE

9.02.2014




I should be packing for an almost two-week long trip to New York right now, but I want to squeeze in - at least - one outfit post especially when it's in my preferred color scheme and photographed at my all-time, favorite LA destination - The Getty Center Museum.

It's a minimalists' dream come true, am I right?

As I look at our jam-packed calendar for NYFW, I am brought back to a place of solace and a zen-like tranquility just through these photos alone. The Getty Center's stark architecture and futuristic curvatures not only make it an ideal environment for photography but also a testament to Richard Meier's timeless body of work.

Since going platinum blonde less than a week ago, I've been experiencing quite an euphoric confidence boost. The hair color feels so natural - some may say that it is the color of my aura. The best part is how much more malleable and pliable it has become, which means no weird cow-licks and nuisances synonymous with coarse, Asian hair. I am very much looking forward to debuting my hair in styles that I've never been able to experiment with before!

And I'll leave it there for now - come back and check this space often as I do my best to provide my NYFW experience. For more immediate gratification, feel free to literally hashtag along on Instagram!
