Lanvin’s winter collection of men’s shoes is everything a bloke’s shoe should be: stylish, sleek, and most of all, fun. By combining unexpected textures and materials like denim and leather, Lanvin’s designs lend even the stuffiest pair of brogues a dandy air of nonchalance. A Lanvin man might note, “I know my shoes look good. Now how’s about you try my signature sidecar?”

Round is the new… Oh whatever.

It’s no secret that the biggest game you can play in fashion is trying to decipher which hot new trend is set to replace its older, lamer counterpart. I’m more of the school of thought that you should wear what you like and what works for your body type/build/shape/frame, but there’s no denying that 2009 (and, I suspect, specifically the summertime) will be the year of the round spectacle.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

If you’re dying to jump on the Lennon boat, you can find inexpensive sunnies here and here.

Student by day, highly sought after fashion designer by night, Kira Plastinina has built an empire out of a dream all before the age 16 ( with a little help from Father, of course). With the dream of always wanting to be a fashion designer, her father, Sergei Plastinina, the multimillionaire juice-and-dairy king of Eastern Europe, took notice and like every good dad, gave his daughter just what she wanted: her own fashion label.

“The human body is always the starting point in my work,” says Swedish knitwear designer Sandra Backlund. “I am really fascinated by all the ways you can highlight, distort and transform the natural silhouette of the body with clothes and accessories. I build my garments by hand from a couple of basic bricks which I multiply and attach to each other in different ways to discover the shape that I want. In that sense I approach fashion more like a sculptor than a tailor.”


Backlund is definitely defying what the modern fashion industry stands for with her ground breaking knit sweater designs. Now only if we could find somewhere cool enough to wear one of these we’d be set.

The Gatherer jacket is an interesting new concept in fashion that allows the wearer to adjust to their own ever changing climate conditions. Using adaptive insulation pockets through the body and sleeve, you can fill the pockets up with an insolating material of any kind; newspapers, packing peanuts, leaves, or pillow stuffing. You can fill it up as much or as little as you want, making it a truly year round accessory. The only limit to your ability to stay warm is your imagination.

Sensual and sexy are first words that came to mind when we saw Clayton Cubitt’s fashion photography. When we saw his portraits of hurricane Katrina survivors however, the word “RESPECT” flashed before our eyes. Clayton treats these portraits with the same stylized production value as his fashion work, but lets the survivors everyday personality show through in a way that tells a profound American story that desperately needs to be heard.

“A lot of the time I’m a fashion photographer,” The Wiliamsburg (area of Brooklyn) native explains. “And I’m certainly inspired by fashion photography, but I don’t consider myself a fashion photographer alone any more than I would consider myself a ‘portrait photographer’ or an ‘art photographer.”
