August 10th // 2 Comments

Here’s the young, searingly talented actor Daniel Radcliffe, shown here with his co-stars and J.K. Rowling at the “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” premiere in London. Where he wore… this outfit. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a frog-closure on a suit before. But the piping is very “Babes in Toyland”:

What do you say: Has Daniel been confunded? Or is the whimsy working?

Trends and News – CFDA Gap Awards

August 5th // Comment Here

Last Year’s CFDA Winners, This Year’s Gap Collaborators

Gap’s Design Edition was started three years ago to help introduce up-and-coming, CFDA winning designers to a larger audience. This year’s team—Alexander Wang, accessories designer Albertus Swanepoel, and the duo behind Vena Cava—took on the challenge of reinventing the classic khaki. And the results couldn’t have been more, well, cool. There were high-waisted, pleated pants I’m dying to roll up and wear with killer heels, an easy, everyday fedora, and possibly the cutest zippered dress of all time. These pieces have already hit the web, but to thumb through all of the limited edition offerings—including some pretty irresistible motorcycle jackets—you’ll have to venture out to the nearest Gap.

Women’s Fashion Tips – The Hottest Summer Dresses (Built to last through the Fall)

August 5th // Comment Here

In her latest movie, “The Proposal,” Sandra Bullock plays a publishing executive with killer instincts and an equally killer wardrobe. Exhibit A: The fitted tweed sheath she wears in the final scene (see below). It’s such a timeless, utterly feminine shape, and the origami detail at the neckline and the arc of the cap sleeves fly off the style charts – so pretty and modern. I haven’t found the exact dress just yet — let me know if you have any luck in this department! But in the meantime, I discovered some great options that share the same refined attitude and keep-it-forever appeal:

Men’s Fashion Tips – The Secret to Going Sockless

August 4th // Comment Here

The idea of wearing lace-up Oxfords without socks in summer is so appealing. The idea of blisters… not so much.

Given the smiles on these insanely chic twins (photographed this month in Florence by Scott Schuman and posted on his brilliant fashion blog, thesartorialist.com), we’re guessing they’ve wisely invested in some Band-Aid Blister Block Sticks – one of the greatest inventions of all time – and/or some talcum powder and no-show socks. Whatever the secret, I’m glad to see these guys conjoined in hipness.

Here are 2 lace-up oxfords that we’re especially excited about.
