So what design suits your style and personality the best? Answer the questions below to find out!

Every summer my go to each and every time is the seer sucker. Some would call it my summer ‘jam’ and how could I argue with the masses…
With that, we’ve just released the seersucker trouser and just like that…it’s gone. When we built and designed this pant we wanted to create something contemporary that stayed true to the classic silhouette. With an handsewn waist curtain, this pant is completely alterable. Straight slim fitting silhouette with a 7.5″ leg opening it is perfect both with a roll or without. And like we’ve always said, these pants are meant to be worn sans chaussettes (that’s without socks for all you Americans…just sayin’).
Most of our products are very limited mainly because of the fabric that we source. Read full post…

There was a time when I would think of pairing garments as per the color wheel. But thanks to colorblocking, I can get more experimental. Colorblocking is definitely a rage this season and has been seen in geometric prints with short hemline. The mad about mod patterns focus on clean lines and fine fabrics with the 1950s conservative cuts.

Good thing I never exactly claimed to be logical when it comes to shopping (although ask Tina and she’ll tell you what a practical shopper I am!). I am in the midst of a coat-buying frenzy, and the temperature still only hits the high 60′s at its coldest here in LA. I might need to purge after this layer-oriented shopping spree, as I’ve already taken over the hall closet as my coat closet. But this is the season of coats, so what’s a girl to do?!

The morning after the Prada show, an article appeared in The New York Times about how General Motors and the United Automobile Workers union had agreed to bring a long-dead car factory in Tennessee back to life. The news struck me because the night before, as I sat in bed emailing with a close expat friend of mine about how beautiful Miuccia’s spring show was, she mentioned that the collection reminded her of “Old America, when it was great.”
There was definitely a strong sense of glory days revisited running through this collection. Most obviously, there were the retro silhouettes. And then the intricate hand embroidery on her skirts and greaser jackets, a kind of craftsmanship that is dwindling in this day of fast fashion. Earli
