I thought it would be cool to profile people with interesting lives, hobbies, careers. We recently spent a day out in Newport with Chauncey Tanton, a Native Newporter, former professional snowboarder, and now the Finance Manager for newportFILM. Chauncey's life looks like something out of a Grey Goose commercial. He's been spending the past 4 years restoring a wooden schooner originally designed … [Read more...]

The EverLane Factories.

Everyone is talking about Everlane's latest release, the $165 dollar Modern Loafer. Which, lets admit, are pretty fucking cool. But what is ALSO super cool about this site, is that they are completely transparent about how much their goods cost, where they are making them etc, etc. They have factory tours of all their factories up on their site! I love any behind the scenes photos, so I love this. … [Read more...]

Who ever thought to shoot Dree Hemingway, great-granddaughter of Earnest, with a freaking Matador is a genius. Well we know who thought of it, someone at Dujour and it was shot by Sean Thomas. The shoot is called "Dree and the Matador." Are they modeling Dree after Lady Brett Ashley, one of the most interesting women characters in 20th century American literature? Brett is promiscuous, chaotic, … [Read more...]

Cool, sophisticated, comfortable. The New American Woman, by way of Paris. They are fancy clothes for people who don't care to be fancy. This collection featured ridiculously cool raffia hats and bags … [Read more...]

Peter Lindbergh photographs model, Adriana Lima, dressed in Hassidic garb in Williamsburg, Brooklyn for M Le Monde September 2014 issue. This makes me wonder why you don't see more Adriana Lima in high end fashion spreads. But also makes me realize, this is why burkas exist! She still smolders even completely covered up. As a semi-authority on the matter, I must say they got the snood, skirt … [Read more...]

Classic Movies + Fall Fashion = brilliant.

ex-03-the-graduate-2.nocrop.w1800.h1330.2x

I think it's fair to say that this is the coolest, most imaginative use of photoshop + fashion ever. "What's Dorothy wearing this fall?" is a mash up of some of the most classic movie moments with duds from Fall 2014. I was reading the in copy NY Mag with Tavi on the cover a few days ago, I saw this, and was like, WOAH. Awesome. I freakin love this. Ok, ready? Let's go!  Elizabeth Taylor … [Read more...]
