Back to Coney Island

wut is it? another shoot I did with my friend Danica in Coney Island.

I am pretty obsessed with a cropped washed jean for spring, that I’ve worn it all winter with high socks to protect my ankles from the bitter cold. And this 2 for 1 reversible fur and leather jacket has been a staple for me this year; its warm, practical, and bad ass.

Killing it Kenzo

wut is it? The 1970’s french fashion house started by Japanese native turned Frenchman Kenzo Takada. He retired in 1999 and Italian designer Antonio Marras soon took over , but left the house in 2011. After LVMH interviewed 30 candidates, Opening Ceremony owners and creative directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim were chosen to bring back the spunk in Kenzo. Many thought these merchants with no design background were a risky choice, but their success with the OC in-house label, and successful collaborations with Chloë  Sevigny and Pendleton proved they could stand a chance

And that they did. This is the duo’s second season, and they have killed it from the start.Its fun, refreshing, and daring. I like the risks they take, and the energy they brought back to the brand.

Boys, boys, boys

I am  doing it, I am giving my advice on how guys should
dress. I have spent many  years browsing the floors of 
store's with my dad, and need to speak up. Face it, some 
of you could use guidance, well here it is.
I am  speaking from my perspective, so keep in mind my
taste will  reflect the men's clothing I like. No crazy kicks,
insane graphic t's, or baggy jeans here... sorry, just not
my style
The looks... these earn guys big points, but make it your
own, wear what feels comfortable. The worst is a guy trying
to pull off something, and failing.
The euro-vintage guy. When a guy wears jeans as tight as 
mine,... not tight. But skinny is always the way to go, just 
please, make sure there is room in the thigh, and your balls 
can breath... for your sake and mine. 


All Saints makes a good skinny that is slim on the bottom, 
but roomier up top. Most of there lookbook is styled with
European, vintage style, but without questioning the guys 
sexuality.... though gay guys are not afraid to wear 
whatever the hell they want, and more need to guys get the 
same attitude.

(Not feeling these shoes, too contrived)


Any of the above looks will do. It shows a girl he has a
strong sense of style and is not afraid to show it. I am not
saying wear All Saints head to toe, please don't, you can get
the same looking things at thrift stores, be creative. To see
more click here
The Preppy-Artistic guy. He is a less trendy version of
above. Maybe doesn't feel as comfortable pulling those
clothes off, but still has a sense of style.

A.P.C... for more click here
The "cool" guy. He is keeping it casual in a skinny/ slim
straight jean, graphic T, band T, or flannel/ button up. He 
probably DJ's.... whatever that means anymore, that label
is thrown around like the "actor"  living in LA. It takes a 
little more than having a stalked iTunes library, mastering
dj- hero, downloading an amateur mixing program, and
playing house parties, sorry guys.

Maybe your a mix, or have your own look. I know I am
all over the place with my style. Don't stick to one, mix 
it up, find your own
