It’s been weeks since I’ve shared my love of men and their stylish wicked ways. Now to come back just in time to see the rougher of the two sexes get into the holiday spirit, lets take some time to admire those who are man enough to wear a smoother softer side on their shoulders, feet or around their necks.

It’s the one accessory men have no problems buying several of and wearing throughout the year. A sartorial man never leaves the house without a pair of sunglasses to protect his peepers from the sun, plus hide his eyes while committing other sinful things behind those pieces of plastic framed like they were made for just for them.
Fall nights will be upon us in no time and those long sleeves the boys have been rolling up to the elbows will be unrolled and buttoned to the wrist. Many of us have used the hairy forearms with defining veins to helps us figure out which men work out and which don’t. Very soon they’ll be hidden. Those sexy wrists covered with tattoos, watches, brass bracelets or whatever they call man jewelry, will be covered-up until next year. Continue reading “Monday Men Style: Some Veins and Ink.” »
Men in floral shirts have gone beyond the Hawaiian prints of yesterday. The flowers on fabric are being worn so tastefully on today’s avante-garde gents some striped and plaid-obsessed fellas should started rethinking their definition of masculine prints. When I think about it, those who dare to wear florals prints appear to be more confident in their own sense of style more than those men who’s biggest fashion statement has been wearing the color pink.

Fell in love with a wheelie boy. Fell in love with several of those wheelie boys while in Europe. It was the first time I used a bicycle as my only form of transportation, and when you’re waiting at a traffic light devoted just for cyclists one cannot help but admire the male companions waiting next to you. Ever since then, I’ve been thankful for the sudden surge of green transporation in the New York City. Men are putting themselves on display at speeds of 20 mphot damn!
We get bombarded everyday on social media, fashion websites, and movies with images in color and it’s variations. High definition, 3D, or Sierra, Brooklyn or 1977 filters. We often forget the simplistic beauty of black and white photographs, Continue reading “Monday Men Style: Take Away The Color” »
I love me some color, from my printed head-wraps, to kelly green keds worn throughout the year, but sometimes stepping away from the color explosions is a good way to see stories beyond the colorful smoking mirrors. I’m approaching it the same way one would when visiting a perfume emporium. If testing several fragrances, smelling coffee beans in between will help you reset your sniffer. I’m reseting my blinkers with some black & white photos which inspire me.
Let the boys do all the leg work while I just sit and steal from their Christmas wish lists. I am not one to ask for clothes or shoes for Christmas since I prefer to get those myself, being a stylist and all. Gadgets, games, accessories that may require batteries and a remote, those are the types of goodies I like, and after looking are what some of the male friends in my life will be wishing for, I decided to add the text “Me Too” to certain goodies the fellas asked for.

“When he (Ghesquière) started Balenciaga in ’97, he was designing uniforms for Air France,” François-Henri Pinault. Fifteen years later and Nicolas Ghesquiere evolved not just his designing techniques, but also the great fashion house of Balenciaga, putting the brand among the greatest with handbags, shoes and accessories designed by Ghesquiere, that are collectors items and clothes that requires their own silhouette category. Nicolas Ghesquiere & Balenciaga has been the perfect fashion formula, with design hits putting them into the history books almost every year in the last decade. Upon hearing the news of Ghesquiere’s departure from his position as creative director of the fashion house, I decided to revisit some of Mr. Ghesquiere’s body of work and create my own Fashion year book, before Taschen publishes theirs.
How do you take some of the best moments from a legend in fashion and try to fit everything you love about that designer on the least amount of pages? Ha right, I didn’t. Since most of us are visual creatures, therefore I created an ebook filled with photos from every spring/summer fall/winer campaigns Nicolas Ghesquiere has been behind.
Now Nicolas Ghesquiere’s sucessor, Alexander Wang, has some work ahead of him; continuing what Nicolas has paved out, draped for him to live up to. Best of luck, Wang.
Women have tons of outlets (magazines, websites, tv ads, etc) to share our must-haves gifts during the holiday season and we have no problem letting the men in our lives know exactly what we want in our own inventive and resourceful ways!
Since this is the season of giving. I gave a couple of male friends the chance to tell us what they would like Santa to send their way on Christmas day.
I asked them to be creative with their lists and to keep the x-rated must-haves for their own personal Miss. Claus. They delivered with flying reindeers! Some of the goodies these guys want will be hopping onto my own Christmas list.
But back to the fellas, this is about them after all, and for lucky few I chose to share below I would like them to look at this as an opportunity to politely push or shove your wants into the faces of those you love. You can thank me later. Continue reading “Monday Men Style: Santa Loves You Too.” »
