Most men are perplexed by the ordeal of buying a suit. What looks good? What is appropriate? How formal should it be? What’s a vent? If my husband is any indication, these quandaries paralyze the process to the point they that make most men avoid it all together.
Burberry Prorsum always has a star-studded show, and Fall/Winter 2013 was no exception. Let’s start with one of the faces of the house. Since Christopher Bailey helped launch Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s modeling career through Burberry, it’s no surprise to see the beauty come out to support the brand. It is surprising to see her in the […]
Electrifying colors shocked and awed my senses in Michael Kors’ undeniably urban Fall collection. Black (the city girl’s perennially chic uniform) and blue were the main players here with dashes of yellow and orange to excite. They weren’t exactly neon – more saturated and substantial. Playing off this vibrancy were techno details in the leathers, […]
DKNY’s Fall collection, named “Juxta-Posed” by Donna, was chock full of wearable looks with definite edge – for the rock and roll New Yorker. Bulky coats (truly an essential for NYC natives who have to brave these cold and windy streets) and quilted bombers dominated.
Red, the color of prosperity and happiness in Chinese culture (traditional Chinese brides wear red, not white!), has lit up the fashion world.

One of the strongest trends for Fall 2012 is velvet, and with so many designers embracing their dark sides, black velvet has stolen the show. I remember when velvet took over my wardrobe in the ‘90s, (including a green velvet bustier…yes, I went there). I don’t think I’ll be going back to lingerie territory, but […]
The unstoppable Michael Kors and the season known as Resort go hand-in-hand. If you think about it, whether he’s doing safari-chic or pumped-up minimalist, Kors’ vibe is always a little cruise-inspired. That’s why, when other designers might falter, his collections always seems to be a homerun, packed with pieces to make you say, “Fall who?” […]
They often say that suits are like the lingerie equivalent for women. I’d be willing to concur, as there’s nothing more attractive (cue the list of dapper synonyms) than a man in a tailored suit. Appropriately, MR PORTER, one of my guilty pleasures, is partnering up with USA Network’s ‘Suits,’ a show focusing on a […]
