Sandor Lakatos’ Fall/Winter 2011 collection

George Bezhanishvili Fall 2011

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on June 26, 2011 by James Field

Upon my daily check ups on what the latest collections are from Milan and Paris, I stumbled upon one George Bezhanishvili. He is a recent graduate from the The University of Applied Arts Vienna, and his Fall 2012 collection entitled Oda, was absolutely brilliant! I love when I discover new and exciting designers that are off the beaten path of names like Lanvin, Dior, and Prada. The collection George crafted featured refreshingly strong eastern influences, bold colors and loose, wide silhouettes. It sort of resembles a more modern collection Paul Poiret would have designed if he ever made menswear. I also loved the metallic accents and the accessories George designed as well. I thought it was a superb and well executed collection and I could totally see myself wearing every piece. Check out my favorites below:

I love this editorial for GQ China, it blends old world money and modern styling in such a great way. I love the location also, can you say “inheritance”?

Tim Hamilton Men’s Fall 2009 Collection

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on January 14, 2010 by James Field

As my infatuation with the Tim Hamilton brands grows with each passing season, I am continually awe-struck by his consistently amazing collections. This Fall 2009 collection emphasized impeccably tailored suits, woven sweaters with classic stripes and patterns , and some amazing pants. The outerwear was an excellent mix of functionality and style. The leather bombers, perfectly fitting trench coats and a very cool fur parka was without a doubt very cool. Every season he seems to give young cool men (myself) the ability to look effortlessly chic, while simultaneously being classic and tailored. The collection to me was a home run, and here are some of my favorite looks.



Nouveau Spotlight:

Instant Gratification. The ability to buy something right here, right now is what consumers can’t get enough of. The retail world has turned us all into drones, buying the same shirt your best friend got at H&M, going crazy over  the same Gap hoodie 50 other people in your school has, we buy and buy and buy from the same mass producing giants everyday. But what if things were different? What if you could have a piece of clothing uniquely customized by you, and made just for you? That thought used to rack my brain over and over until I discovered Blank Label.

Blank Label is an online mens dress shirt company who aims to shake up the retail world with one word…Personalization. They offer Co-Created Dress Shirts for men, which gives you, yes you, the consumer the ability to design your very own unique dress shirt from start to finish. The thought was insane to me! Being able to design clothing from fabric colors, collar styles and even the fit was just to much of a “hallelujah moment”. Now saying this is all good, but being an actual consumer of Blank Label is another. The fit, style, color and personal details that I created for my dress shirt was exactly the way I designed it. Everything was excellent in its execution, and to say the least I was a very happy shopper with them. This was my design…

The guys over at Blank Label definitely have a great product on their hands and with the economical downturn effecting retailers and consumers alike, it makes sense to buy something customized, personalized and designed specifically for you. Nowadays people are being smarter with their money and being pulled into the vacuum that is Mass Production is not something that I would wish to waste money on. Be your own designer is what I say, be original, be unique, be a Blank Label customer.
