The Art Of DE x Adrien Sauvage

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 6, 2010 by James Field

So I recently just discovered the work of an amazing new designer by the name of Adrien Sauvage. Stylist turned menswear designer, his work was recently expressed in a short video called “The Art Of DE” the DE is in reference to “Dress Easy”. The film was narrated by Larry Lamb as was completely fantastic. Sauvage hails from Ghana, and currently designs in London. His exquisitely tailored suits are numerically named (collection is from 000-1 to 000-11) and are absolutely beautiful. Using notable fashion and pop culture icons as models for his debut collection, he has made a definately splash in the menswear market. Displayed below are suits from his current collection, and also the short film “The Art Of DE”.

Duckie Brown Fall 2010 Men’s Collection: Tailored Soldiers

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on February 21, 2010 by James Field

The only menswear show that I ever get excited to see at New York Fashion Week is Duckie Brown. This season compared to last was by far my favorite. The overall aesthetic was “Military”, with exaggerated cropped pants paired with amazing calf high lace up boots and white tube socks, and plaid plaid everywhere! The tailoring was phenomenal also, trenches and overcoats were injected with vivid colors, gave a refreshing boost to these cold winter months. I cannot wait until those boots come out next Fall, and I will surly place my order when they do! Here are some of my favorite looks from the show courtesy of GQ.

Yves Saint Laurent Fall 2010 Men’s Collection: Le France Swag

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on February 10, 2010 by James Field

In my head I am an American fashion student who now lives in Paris as the Editor for my own Men’s Fashion magazine (The Black Nouveau) and as a self-respecting Parisian, I wear nothing except for Yves Saint Laurent. Of course this is all in my dreams, but the Fall 2010 collection was just that, a dream of impeccable tailored suits, smoking jacket inspired overcoats, and a demure color palette for the chic under the radar gent. The collection emphasized the laid back luxe of a smartly dressed Parisian man, who seems to know what looks good on him and follows his own trend path. I thought the entire collection was genius, and here are my favorite looks via GQ.

Topic: Fashion’s Night Out

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 26, 2009 by James Field

I am so excited for Fashion’s Night Out in New York City on September 10th! I will be making my way around the city’s participating retailers, sipping cocktails, checking out collections and just having some much needed Fashion Fun! Anyone and everyone is invited and no RSVP’s are neede, so  check out Fashion Night Out for the official list of designers and retailers participating in the event. Below is the official information on the event from the Fashion’s Night Out website. I will be there..will you?!

 

“In a global initiative to promote retail, restore consumer confidence, and celebrate fashion, U.S. and international editions of Vogue are coordinating evening extravaganzas in their respective world fashion capitals.

In the United States, American Vogue has joined with NYC & Company, the City of New York, and the Council of Fashion Designers of America to enliven again the consumer spirit that churns the economy and boosts the local industry of America’s fashion capital, New York City. Next only to finance, fashion is the second-largest sector of industry in New York City—the headquarters of more than 800 fashion companies employing 175,000 people and generating $10 billion in total wages. At City Hall’s May 20 press conference to announce Fashion’s Night Out, Vera Wang said, “To put it bluntly, if people don’t shop, people lose their jobs.”

The first evening of New York Fashion Week, Fashion’s Night Out will encompass festivities galore— from inventive window displays to model and celebrity appearances. Champagne may flow; hors d’oeuvres may be passed. Rumors of musical performances, downtown barbecues, shoe capsules, limited-edition rings, and sweepstakes abound. Apparently there will be makeovers, brow bars, and haircut stations at sundry spots, too.

We’ve invited every fashion retailer across the five boroughs to encourage the fun of fashion again—flagships, tiny boutiques, massive department stores, young designers, mainstream chains, and niche luxury names alike—by keeping its doors open late on the evening of September 10 and to implement creative customer experiences welcoming all. Over 700 retailers and designers across New York City are confirmed participants in Fashion’s Night Out.

On Fashion’s Night Out, every participating location is open to anyone and everyone. Neither tickets nor invitations are required to join in the Fashion’s Night Out festivities.”

 

 UPDATE: Fashion’s Night Out was an absolute extravaganza of fun with, celebrities and crazy amounts of champagne lol 🙂 I met up with a few friends and we made our way around 5th Avenue to check out some of the events, Ciara was performing at Versace and we got to see the super model Chanel Iman. Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen were at Bergdorff Goodman, we didnt get to see them because of the crazy amount of people who packed the store. We snapped some shots at the Armani store and the Prada boutique.

Electric Blue

I love the intensity of this color, its such an awakening shade, and this gentleman wears it well. Notice he pairs them with neutrals to keep the color palette muted, keeping the emphasis on his pants.
