"Akubra" Long Brim Felt Hats

Christian Dior
Long brim hats are an amazing look. Originating from from the early 1870's designed by an Australian hat maker Benjamin Dunkerley. Receiving the name "Akruba" in 1912 by Dunkerley daughter after his death. That hat can be amazingly worn with a button up shirt; I'd button completely to the neck. Or a bit more casual with a plain T-Shirt and a slack. The hats are versatile and made for men and women. Similar to the Korean "Gat," the Jewish "Fedora," and the Western "Cow Boy Hat."

Adidas Craze

Adidas track suits are becoming one of the most hip, casual, cool pieces in the American closet. With cool new styles by a group of designers joining the Adidas brand creating new colors, styles, and cuts to the classic track suit; Such as Jeremy Scoot, Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, and Yohji Yamamoto. Not my style exactly, but the plethora of colors and prints could spice up any wardrobe, causal or business. This picture was taken in Central Park Oct, 20th by Demetrius Mickens.

Reddress by Aamu Song

In honor of the London Design Festival at York Hall, designer Aamu Song has designed an enormous red dress that acts as the talents platform and spectators seating area. The red dress was created using 550 meters of fabric. The dress lays 20 meters in diameter and stand 3 meters high. Each performer climbs a concealed stair case that leads them to the body. The show ran September 22 - 25 with performances by Finnish Musicians. The dress holds about 238 pockets to create a comfortable blanketed space for each audience member. Hopefully to much comfort doesn't put the audience to sleep.

Preview Shot

Here is a preview of the shoot I did with photographer Seth London. The rest of the shots will be coming soon.

Winter Essentials...

1. A great winter coat or a fur. Not really having a winter in Florida made me realize there are so many great options for winter coats. While most people go for a classic shearling; As well there are parkas, quilted jackets, capes, ponchos, and trenches all made in numerous fabrications that creates more comfort and shields you from the cold.
2. Gloves. Gloves protect your hands from the cold while adding a special touch to your outfit. Gloves can be fun to play with do to the different shapes, colors, and fabrications. Gloves also come in different lengths. Wearing a quarter length sleeve wool jacket with a long leather glove will definitely make you stand out in a crowd.
3. Ear Muff. These ear muffs are my favorite. They're simple and chic matching any outfit you have in mind, and they only cost about five dollars. Ear Muff are very helpful during winter. Also with a wide variety of styles and colors ear muffs can play a huge role in your wardrobe.
4. Boots. WATER PROOF!!!! A water resistant boot is a very important thing during the winter. While most of the sidewalks and streets are covered with wet snow, a boot with traction is key. We'd rather not have wet socks in a boot slipping on the concrete.
5. Scarves. For hundreds of years people have worn scarves for different reason and ways; Hats, wraps, neck ornaments and more. The personalization of scarves are fun interesting pieces that you can shape and style which ever way you want. With a number of fabrications, sizes, colors and patterns a scarf can be one of the most difficult or easy things to pair with an outfit. Worn on your arms, legs, neck, or even your wrist. Keep in mind a scarf can not be worn with everything.
