Stay Just The Way You Noir

Humphrey Bogart’s buttoned-up elegance was as sharp and tailored as his perfectly timed Wisecracks. Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Paul & Joe, Valentino and Faconnable kept things snappy and classy with Bogie’s crisp cinematic elegance. Here’s  lookin’ at you kid.

Post Apocolypse, We’ll All Be Wearing Lanvin

Recently, our retinas have been bombarded with images of a post-apocalyptic world- and the muted clothing that comes with it. Not to be a downer, but Gray isn’t really my color. Paris Runways like Lanvin, Phillip Lim and Thom Browne took a cue from this year’s most hyped-about apocalypse films and cast  dreary, ominous, Rick-Owens-esque shadows on the season. The costumes of Snow-piercer and Divergent (not to compare them in any other capacity other than sartorially) both made cameos on Parisian runways; Chris Evan’s charcoal duster and street-urchin look turned up at Lanvin and Phillip Lim and Divergent”s padded bad boys were modeled after at Thom Browne.

Don Juan

It’s not a mystery what makes Joseph Gordon Levitt irresistible to women; the boy cleans up nice. At Paris Fashion Week, Louis Vuitton, Paul & Joe and Dior channeled the charming Don Jon star’s magnetic, incredibly  dapper, brand of cool.

Sugar Caine

Young sir Michael’s smooth Cockney accent and smug, cocky demeanor made him quite the ladies’ man. Louis Vuitton’s spring ‘15 men’s collection  turns on the charm with classy double-breasted suits, sophisticated turtlenecks and retro-tinged elegance akin to the impeccable polish of the Alfie star.

 Fine & Dandy

 Hairder Ackerman and Valentino took the swank-meets-scruffy rocker route at Paris fashion week. Resplendent drainpipe trousers,waistcoats shrunken suits made from luxuriant fabrics and ornate scarves- all slightly tousled- creating the perfect pretentious-iconoclast effect; a’ la Sir Mark Palmer.
