I'm off working, traveling, and getting inspired in Asia. In the meantime (while I figure out how to get around all these website bans in China)......
Off to Asia for work next week....So, I'm leaving you with this great Fall 2011 editorial from Numero Homme China titled CHAMAN. RJ King stars in this amazing editorial shot by Carter Smith featuring pieces from John Richmond, Comme Des Garcon, Pamela Love, and many others. Love the juxtaposition of the tailored pieces, the savage like accessories, and the wild. So beautiful!
Side note: Does any one have any idea what proxies would work for CHINA? I would love to be able to update, but I haven't found the best proxy yet.... We'll see what happens! Love your suggestions and thoughts.
Technically, I'm gone for 2+ weeks....but I hope to be posting much sooner. Wish me luck.
Japanese label Kapital just dropped their latest lookbook. Inspired by Colorado Hippies - strong designs and amazing eccentric layering make this one of the most intriguing lookbooks I've seen in a long time. Americana wild west style is always better through the lens of the Japanese!

First campaign images of the H&M X Versace collabo.... featuring River Viiperi shot by Mert & Marcus. Not sure if I would wear anything from the collection...but I get where they are going with it. It's very Versace.

San Francisco based retailer UNIONMADE just launched their Indigo capsule collection and I'm pretty much blown away by the results. A mix of 45rpm, Giltman Vintage, Unis, and Levi's aesthetics, the looks are all made out of indigo and shot beautifully by photographer Andrew Paynter. Perhaps a trip up to UNIONMADE is needed earlier than expected. SF TRIP anyone?
Side note: Get yourself a neckerchief or a indigo scarf....it's never looked cooler.
I guess you can say that I have a cult-like obsession with Fashion156: The Cult Issue's latest menswear editorial. Shot by Annick Wolfers and staring Henry Hatherley, Jamie Cockerill and Niki B, the looks showcase some of the more moody and experimental pieces from Bennet Loveday, Jaeho Choi, Ross Williams, and many others. I love the way the whole editorial came together, from styling to style of photography. Very haunting.
