A few weeks ago, I met up with the Penguin team at their store in Soho to talk Chinos. Chinos are the jeans of the summer, particularly for those of us who can’t exist in over 50 degree weather. We shot and I styled a few looks for the summer—one for the office, one for the beach and one for the weekend. Think Nantucket, because I’m always thinking Nantucket. You can catch all the pics and some videos in which I wax on about chinos for a few minutes on Penguin’s site.
As an aside, I’ve been rolling in a pair of these chinos since the shoot and they don’t disappoint, just sayin’.
now that the milan/paris mens shows have ended i must wait until fashion week rolls on elsewhere. i must say i was pleasantly surprised this season, lots of color, lots of desirability and plenty of wearable pieces. seems like the houses really took a step forward, perhaps they realized that in this economy product must be absolutely irresistible. and with the exception of dsquared2’s ridiculous devil angel costume most products were. so i popped together a few of my favorite things and styled them up right nice. here’s hoping they become realities.
1: everyday getup: 2 tone v-neck by trussardi 1911, sweater by salvatore ferragamo, jacket by c.p. company, jeans by balmain, boots by louis vuitton
2: a little dressed up: shirt by prada, sweater by agnes b, coat by ferragamo, pants by dries van noten, shoes by agnes b
3: up north/in the country: hooded button front by c.p. company (with a hanes t-shirt underneath, duh), jeans by balmain (i love balmain and i love jeans, so what, who cares), coat by agnes b, boots by dolce & gabbana
