The Sartorialist Speaks



A few weeks ago I wrote about meeting Scott Schuman, aka The Sartorialist, and here is the video that I shot of him that day. Watching this video again, I was reminded of how much I admire his passion and enthusiasm. Personable, charming, adorable and a true visionary - Mr. Schuman is the real deal.

Alexander McQueen Fall '09









These are new images of Alexander McQueen's Fall '09 collection. I'm LOVING all of the jackets and the tapered shape of all the trousers. I think this is a great take on the "skinny" look and it totally takes it to the next level. The tailoring on all of these pieces is impeccable and Alexander McQueen definitely show us why he is the master of tailored details.

This is a first look at +J, the collaboration between Jil Sander and Japanese retailer Uniqlo. The menswear collection will feature 40 pieces comprised of jackets, pants, shirts and more and the materials featured in this diffusion line include: wools, tweeds, cotton poplins and other quality textiles. Minimal, innovative and functional is the Jil Sander way and this collection is guaranteed to have some treasures with each piece retailing for $200 or less. I can't wait!

Meeting Lynda Carter




Today I had the pleasure and honor of witnessing one of my dearest and best friends have his wildest of wild childhood dreams come true!

My friend Ken is the ultimate Wonder Woman fan and he lives and breathes for all things related to the Amazon princess. He learned that Lynda Carter (the original Wonder Woman from the '70s hit television show) was going to be in town to promote her new CD, At Last so we ventured to the in-store event to see and meet one of his childhood idols.

When we arrived at the event, there was probably a little over a 100 people eagerly waiting for Lynda to come out and meet with her fans. While waiting in line we saw many people who were obviously huge Wonder Woman fans also, as there was plenty of Wonder Woman memorabilia to be seen. Ken also brought one of his Wonder Woman collectibles to get signed, but to our chagrin we were informed that Lynda would only be autographing her new CD...

When we finally got to the podium to meet Lynda, she was even more stunning, breathtaking, and beautiful in person - we were in the presence of a true Glamazon! Ken shared one of his fondest Wonder Woman childhood memories with Lynda and she was truly touched and inspired by his passion and recollection - so much so, that she was inspired to sign the new cd that he had just bought, as well as his Lynda Carter collectible even though Lynda's handlers told her not to sign his collectible. Lynda Carter was down-to-earth, genuine, and everything and more than we expected her to be! Thank you so much Lynda for making Ken's day and for being a part of one of the highlights of his life!!!

Rick Owens for Eastpack FW '09










These are more of the bags from the Fall collaboration by Rick Owens and Eastpack. Minimal and avante-garde, these bags are ultra modern and beautiful. My favorite is the black shoulder bag.
