This season at Ervell was very sporty and chic. What with the wind breakers and the nylon teva sandals. Not gonna lie, I’m not a huge fan of the teva, mainly because I think it’s vulgar for a young man to show his feet when not swimming or at the beach. I guess that’s a personal problem and I’ll have to note this in a later post. But regardless, the collection was pretty awesome. I’m obsessed with nylon because of the ‘swishy’ sounds it makes when it rubs against itself. You can kind of sashay around and let people know you’ve arrived in a way.
I’m a little over-obsessed with the ‘Prince of Arabia-esque’ caps that the models were wearing. I could either go to the desert and protect myself from the harsh tuscan sun(pretend there’s a desert in Tuscany…) or weather the storm and shelter myself from the wintery sleet. I don’t know how durable it is but it’s super cute and it’s definitely gonna be on my to buy or diy lists. I’m pretty damn sure I can pull it off. Besides, I’m already growing tired of turning my infinite scarf into a snood(I lie, I still love it).
This is one of those random collections that give you that ‘effortless’ confidence. Like, right now I feel like I can put on my parka, put a bandana underneath a cap and sling a backpack over my shoulder and just walk around town looking busy. The plus side about the clothes are that they’re waterproof! So you can get as wet as you want and nothing will happen. Suck on that!!!
Cara Delevingne for Dsquared2 Resort 2013
This year Frankie Morello decided to go Rolling with the Homies. The collection is very Urban throughout. The oversized b-boy pants and shirts with the gold all over. High top sneakers, baseball caps and the baggy silhouette was surprising to see, since last season was very slim and chic and really close to my personal taste. I had to watch this show a few times to understand the beauty of it. My first thoughts in the words of Cher Horowitz:
So okay, I don’t want to be a traitor to my generation and all but I don’t get how guys dress today. I mean, come on, it looks like they just fell out of bed and put on some baggy pants and take their greasy hair – ew – and cover it up with a backwards cap and like, we’re expected to swoon? I don’t think so.
But in watching the closer details in the video(see below), I realized the how amazing the collection really was. Yeah, let’s set aside the tacky unrefined sense of it all and look closely. This collection paid really close attentions to detail. Just look at the gold tank top, it almost looks like gold snake skin. Also, the models are accessorized to the nines with chains, crosses and small details that men should really start paying attention too.
If you were to take each piece separately, you could be on to something there. Maybe I won’t wear the baggy pants or shorts(unless it’s for bed), but I would totally rock those high tops, caps and gold oversized sweaters. I love the extra long silhouette. It’s so sartorial and unexpected the way the show was styled. It took me a while, but I’m a fan. I need a few of these looks for an instagram outfit post.

L’Invitation Au Voyage
To me the video reminds me a lot of the ‘Da Vinci Code’ by Dan Brown. What with the Louvre and the Mona Lisa and all the secrets of Paris. Enjoy!
Arizona Muse and Shaun DeWet star in Louis Vuitton’s newest campaign video directed by Inez and Vinoodh.
Here’s the description on Louis Vuitton’s official YouTube page.
Paris and its mysteries… For centuries, the most wonderful intrigues have been woven in the Louvre, a haven of culture and history.
An intrepid young woman enters this universal temple and unwinds the skein of time. After an encounter with the Mona Lisa and the Italian masters, armed with a key, she releases the secrets — also desired by a man hot on her heels — enclosed for more than 150 years in a legendary trunk created by Louis Vuitton.
Like a thread stretching across time and space, a hot-air balloon rises above the Cour Carrée. The beautiful unknown woman leaves the Louvre for a far-off destination in pursuit of her destiny.
Okay, I’m being totally honest when I say that seeing Minnie in Lanvin on the runway is a wet dream of mine…so fucking insanely awesome!!!
Cutest collaboration ever!!! Try naming all the characters!
