From My Closet – Michael Kors Chain-Link Pad Lock Necklace in Gold


, , , , , , , , ,

I picked this piece up not too long ago. Normally I steer clear of MK necklaces for the simple reason that they are predominantly feminine in design (which is fine for the company’s intended shopper). This piece however is perfectly gender fluid for guys and the not so girly girls. The gold tone is always a plus, and it will last you a lifetime, granting you cherish your costume jewelry like I do. While on the pricey side ($200), it’s an investment that can always net you a substantial return, if ever you decide to part ways with it.

London Fashion Week Favorites: Gareth Pugh, Christopher Kane, Alexander McQueen.

McQueen – Delicately Haunting

The debate around Burton’s ability to rise to the occasion and slip on Lee’s shoes is jaded in the least. Burton will never be Lee and vice versa. What Burton now shows is her convictions of the McQueen woman; a rather delicate and haunting figure.This season she has not deviated from her aesthetic. The McQueen woman in leather, black, prints, and pastels is a dream adorned with butterfly motifs, and jewelry that screams everything from the sea to the cosmos and back again.

Pugh – Constructs of Power

Gareth Pugh showed a collection depicting a woman in charge and who knows shes in charge. Sharp tailoring reinforces Pugh’s subtly sexy silhouettes. A focus on trousers are always a plus, after all sex and power have long moved beyond tight dresses and mini skits. Star motifs, disc-like halos, and Hannibal Lecter hockey masks remind us that the eccentric pugh is very much present even now; its as almost as if to say madness may ensue at any moment.

Kane – Hoarding Glamour 

Christopher Kane is a seasoned favorite. You never quite know what you’ll be experiencing each season. What in fashion heaven did he present this season? In short, his woman is glamorous with real problems. Her tendency to hoard timeless pieces is her story, and she isn’t looking to rehabilitation anytime soon. In a time when maximalism isn’t going anywhere anytime soon (thanks Marc!),  Kane’s woman is free to be; Fringe, PVC, knitted flowers & shearling are here to stay.

NYFW Favorites: Proenza Schouler, Delpozo, & Marc Jacobs.


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

In a manner that is all too familiar NYFW has come and gone, but not before leaving its lingering artistic expressions. Proenza Schouler, Delpozo, and Marc Jacobs offered a renewal of faith in the idea that ready to wear doesn’t have to come off that way!

The guys at Proenza Schouler presented silhouettes that were fun, of a sophisticated color palette, topped with tailoring and layering that would make any woman the envy of any room.

Delpozo continues to be a constant favorite. Josep Font is a master at fabricating rigid silhouettes, only to then manipulate them in a way that resolves itself as whimsy and ethereal. The fashion world ought to start tooting the horns on the Josep Font for the Christian Dior train today! He’d be a great fit.

Monsieur Marc Jacobs. The man one counts on for delivering the high paced, exaggerated, industrious works of a Parisian fashion show did it this season without the extra props. A clean white runway was the stage for a hybrid of Gothic, mysterious seductresses. God, who is this woman? Where can we meet her Marc?

Matt & Nat Brave Backpack


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I’ve followed this locally based label (Montreal) and their vegan leather (recycled plastic bottles) movement for sometime. I’m an avid supporter of investing in genuine leather products (quality+longevity+biodegradable= better buy). Ultimately, a friend at university (Hi Lexy!) convinced me to give the movement a try, and I can now admit to the value behind the Matt & Nat line. The bags come in different styles and are rather affordable (C 150 max). If you’re environmentally conscious, or you’re on the market for relatively priced fashion forward bags, perhaps you’re interested in both fashion and the environment, then Matt and Nat will serve as a perfect choice.
