WHATS NEW AT PROENZA

If there is one thing Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez do best, its innovation. The pair are known for their unique expression of art and youth culture through expert tailoring and customized fabrication. With the launch of the PS1 in 2008, the two designer behind mega-brand, Proenza Schouler, redefined what it meant to be an “it-bag”. The newest editions to their handbag line-up include spectator stripes, python and a perfectly florescent neon. Although they are undoubtedly stunning, these pretty bags will cost you an even prettier penny… start saving ladies.

SS13 MENS GLOBAL THEMES

In case you didn’t have a chance, during our very wonderful holiday, to check out the Mens Global Themes on the site here is a breakdown of the trends we called out for SPRING 2013.

FUTURISTIC FITNESS

Probably my favorite theme for men in 2013, this trend focuses on the balance between futuristic couture and athletic inspiration. Minimalism is the key to keeping this trend balance with a monochromatic color palette and touches of metallic and holographic finishes. Look to brands like Y-3 and Margiela for inspiration.

 

TROPICAL SABBATICAL

With a huge sweep of tropical influences, SS13 for men also supports a sea-side trend, from over-sized Hawaiian prints to casual resort wear. We focus on the diver watch being a key element in supporting this trend as scuba gear is a major influence. New fabrics such as Neoprene, nylon and ripstop are highlighted.

 

AFRICAN WARRIOR

From gladiator sandals and safari inspired bags at Michael Kors to straw materials and bright colors at Burberry, there was a vast range of African influences. We look to new material combinations and fabrications such as canvas, braided jute and wax-finished leathers. Over-sized cuffs and neck-wear also make a statement for SS13, setting a new identification from past seasons’ African expression.

 

ALMOST FAMOUS

Taking inspiration from pure Rock-n-Roll, this trend is not defined by a specific decade but rather a free-spirited and grungy sensibility. For many decades music has influenced fashion but one consist trend taken from the industry is a nod to rocker’s non-nonchalant garb. With juxtapositions from distressed and worn in tailoring at John Varvatos to casual kick-back Cobain style at Nicholas K, this trend is sure to fill the shelves for SS13 with more attitude and style than any of the others.

ASOS SS12 PREVIEW

Headed to the ASOS SS12 preview last week and it totally blew my mind. Their use of fabrication is incredible considering the price point. I loved all the tropical inspired hot shorts and mini dresses. The lucite tinted visor and perforated backpacks were so cool too. I am always so impressed by the evolution of ASOS as a private label brand. Some of my favorite shots below….

Heather and I are at Art Basel in Miami this week and here are a few things I’m dreaming of having to wear this weekend! I really love the monochromatic look with pops of bright punchy accessories.

MULBERRY CUFFS

As one of the most powerful fashion houses in the world, Mulberry has dominated the handbag market with multiple bestseller styles including it-girl favorite, the Alexa bag. For next spring, Mulberry plans to release these gorgeous gold cuffs which will also have the traditional padlock closure for the perfect Mulberry finishing touch. I can’t wait to get my hands on the rose gold one and I am certain we will be seeing them on the wrists of editors across the world very soon.
