Alani Spring/Summer 2012

Alani is a brand directed by Jae Hwan Kim out of Seoul, Korea. In the past, I have spoken of their "sweatshirts" project. The look here is from the S/S 2012 collection. I'm enjoying how the Bi-colored jacket is mimicked in the shorts. See more of this creatively easy going collection HERE.

Fall as shot by Matteo Felici

Matteo Felici and stylist Umberto Sannino find Fall inspiration. I enjoy the split colored mohair turtle, lost in the leaves. And with the glasses and hair--all I can think about is The Graduate, and the music of S&G. "Hello Silence." I'm enjoying Felici's shots more than anything--perhaps I'm hypnotized by the golden leaves. See more from the shoot HERE on Fashionisto


I enjoy the creativity of these leather pieces by Zana Bayne. The use of slimmer strips allows for the creation of more intricate design, and breathes more of a fashion forward air into the work as opposed to a heavy fetishist vibe. See more HERE.

Yohan Serfaty S/S 2012

A very romantic pose and feel with the white jacket by Yohan Serfaty for his latest collection entitled Ad Vitam--Making for a romantic life. Nice stache and curls, too. I'm also enjoying the way the long gray coat falls. See more of the collection HERE on This.Hearts.On.Fire.

"Headwear" in Fashion156

Fashion156 dedicates its current issue to Headwear--topping looks off with the perfect hat...or...other...stuff. Whatever you choose: wearing a hat--or rather, something on your head/face region--can make quite the statement. Case in point, this silhouette (and great shot by Fabrice Lachant)  created by the outline of the Laird London hat paired with the cape by Felipe Rojas Llanos.

Unconditional Spring/Summer 2012

Unconditional is a bit of an unconventional brand as demonstrated by the pants below: I enjoy the triangular seam at the crotch and don't find it at all off-putting. I'm also enjoying the accessorizing using the spiked holster--and the slicked hair (not to mention the model's facial accessories). The beaded detail on the lapel of the sleeveless jacket is nice as well.

Angelo Van Mol: S/S 2012

Dazed has an interview with up-and-coming designer, Angelo Van Mol, about his latest collection, the future, and what he looks for, and tries to convey, in menswear design. What I enjoy about these coats is the modern simplicity (if the term isn't an oxymoron): taking a fabric that breathes future-isms (neoprene) and making it look classic, not cheap; youthful and sophisticated. Read the interview and see more of the collection HERE on Dazed Digital.
