While We Are Here - Andre Bortolan, Andre Kherwald, Josue Wiese, Fabricio Bach, Rafael Desimon, & Luis Coppini by Gustavo Zylbersztajn

To say that a lot has happened from the past couple of weeks would be an understatement. Aside from work duties and some social responsibilities, this year would seem to be a busy year. It also finally rained in San Francisco. That meant I could have my bubble baths again! Well, maybe not . . . yet. And the social event of the season came and went. Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week. I was just glad that it didn't snow (heavily) when I was there. But only braved the streets with my Prada shoes my last day there, other days I went with my Hunter snow boots.

In terms of the shows I think Public School, Rochambeau, and Robert Geller topped my list. Although the stunning operatic presentation of Moncler Grenoble was a must see.

That weekend, I also signed my "adieu" paperworks. An end to a chapter of that part of my life. It was bittersweet (and expensive) but nonetheless necessary.

Time for this post to be wrapped up. Menswear tradeshows (Project, Capsule, Liberty, and Mrket) happening in the Sin City, Las Vegas this weekend! Here we go!

The editorial post today appeared on the Brazilian issue of Pulp Magazine. It featured male models, Andre Bortolan, Andre Kherwald, Josue Wiese, Fabricio Bach, Rafael Desimon, and Luis Coppini. The project was photographed by Gustavo Zylbersztajn and styled by Paulo Martinez.

Not a whole lot of fashion in here but I do love the colors.

Looking - Paolo Anchisi by Adrian Mesko

I know I haven't posted in a while, but I thought I needed to gather myself and actually catch up on some work. Funny, how I have so much free time on my hands these days. London, Milan, and Paris menswear shows just happened and I'm quite excited how great some of the collections looked. Of course, I had my favorites like Frankie Morello, Vivienne Westwood, Givenchy (of course), Kris Van Assche, Dior Homme to name my top picks.

The thing I'm (sorta) hating would be the unseasonal warm weather that we've been having. Okay, I know that the whole country was or still is on a polar freeze but not us Californians. I really should accept the fact that I wont be wearing any of my heavy knitwear, neoprene sweaters and heavy coats while I'm here in my beloved San Francisco. I know it will be rough on my skin when I finally get to New York for NYFW next week.  

Which on another part, I am excited and very anxious to see the changes for this season's fashion week among other things. 

On a final note, HBO's Looking? Umm . . . what?! Disappointment, that was what it was. Although it did feature my neighborhood's laid back watering holes.

Today's editorial appeared on GQ Japan/China featuring one of the top male models right now, Paolo Anchisi. The project was lensed by Adrian Mesko and styled by Jacky Tam under Grant Pearce. Paolo donned dapper looks by Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Tom Ford and Etro to name a few. 

I think it was interesting to see the variances with both editorials. I think I preferred the GQ China variant better. The Ralph Lauren Purple Label shot with the lady model was too candid/red carpet rather than editorial.

It Takes Two - Ben Hill by Milan Vukmirovic

I know I should be thankful to the somewhat temperate to a little short of amazing weather that we, Californians, were having while the rest of America was freezing. I mean the other day, a friend of mine and I were just walking around the city shopping in a tee and brunching and day-drinking in bar patios. So far this year has been really busy for me which was good keeping my mind of some things. 

Sometimes I still think that we I made a bad decision. But I guess I would find out in time. 

Have a great weekend my fashionistos and fashionistas!

Today's editorial post featured the work of one of my favorite photographer, Milan Vukmirovic. Ben Hill donned dark florals for this editorial that appeared on the latest issue of Details magazine. The editorial featured fashions from Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada and Marc Jacobs to name a few.
