Fun w/ fashion by Acne and Shake Appeal

What I enjoy most about these pieces are their playful yet cool qualities. This boot by Acne, the Zweig, is the kind of piece that generates double takes. Many times, a hybrid idea such as this can lose it's charm, but these boots retain style in addition to the utilitarian component (they also come in dark brown).

The shirt by Shake Appeal, as part of their Autumn/Winter 2012 collection, says it all; it's a geeky-cheeky. I'm digging the overall look as well.

Custo Barcelona Spring/Summer 2013

Patterns and colors come bursting off the runway as part of Custo Barcelona's Spring/Summer 2013 collection. There's a good deal of vivid and booming pattern, color, and texture being used in fashion at the moment. This is good, but it's even better when fanciful creations actually obtain harmonious ground; Custo Barcelona has done just that, particularly with the darker graphics. These looks are playful yet smart. Next Spring might be even more brilliantly deranged than the last. See more of Custo Barcelona's S/S 2013 collection, HERE on FuckingYoung!

"Masculine Mystery" in Dansk

Serving up Rhythm Nation realness--and I'm loving it. This is a shot by Stefan Zschernitz for Dansk Magazine, featuring pieces by Prada. What a coat: the waist right where I like it. The silhouette, including the hair, is right on with this look. See more of the shoot HERE on Morphosis.

David Delfin Spring/Summer 2013

Madrid based David Delfin is celebrating 10 years in fashion with his S/S 2013 collection. This is the piece I enjoy the most: a one-piece jumpsuit with an asymmetric zipper--going all the way up just one side of the garment. It's simple, it's cool, it's blue. And I am imagining it being worn with a nice pair of boots. See more of Delfin's S/S 2013 collection on FuckingYoung!.

"Chic Creep" on Fashionisto

Shot and groomed by Manu and Pascal, this shoot for Fashionisto, "Chic Creep," features one of the best haircuts/styles I've seen in some time. I enjoy the winged effect from the side the most. See more of the shoot, including a couple more hair styling choices HERE on Fashionisto.
