Suzy Menkis, “THE CIRCUS OF FASHION” The peacock and the crow

“EDITORS AND BLOGGERS” “ THE DOUBLE EDGED SWORD” This is a rebuttal to Suzy Menkes’s New York Times article ,”The Circus of Fashion” The Crows and the Peacock. I’ve admired Madam Menkis writing techniques for many years. She is, of course, much older and in some cases much wiser than myself. I read with bubbling anger and interest, Suzy Menkes’s article separating editors and bloggers. In a sense we are all Journalists, Suzy went to Journalism school and us bloggers possess the good taste and knowledge of how to spot a good thing when we see it. In my travel to the Fall Collections in Paris in February, bloggers congregate at the garden path of the Tuilleries, which...

Spring fashion mens, “THE INTERESTING MAN”

Spring is here. We’ve been saying that, but it really is here. It’s a mans world and we just live in it. Spring is all about interest. An interesting way of being, and a way of putting a look together. It’s a good thing to see a man dressed like a man and dressed interestingly. Interesting meaning, a bit rakish, a bit different and interestingly enough to garner a double take. I firmly believe that a mans wardrobe requires the right mixture of complex, interesting pieces and simple key pieces to form the right balance of interest. Men’s wardrobe is sometimes placed in a box and it is sort of my job to extract it out of that dull box and shed...

Spring Fashion “WHITE IS RIGHT”

Spring is here, and there is no better color than spring summer white.Editors and magazines always promote White as a top trend for spring summer. In my book, White is a staple for spring and summer , a requisite for a season of light , warmth and soaring temperatures. For this post we chose, not any white , but the most amazing whites from the most amazing designers. In styling any shoot , I try very hard to find the most interesting looks. Something that has amazing detail or amazing simplicity that speaks volume. In this portfolio we feature Comme Des Garcons assymetrical top worn with Lanvin patent hat and Moschino studded cotton sheath. Both looks are at...
