JKISSI : The weather turned slightly cooler and the capital of the modern world New York City became a stomping ground for fashionistas/tos from around the world to all participate in New York fashion week. Individuals came with their own self expression of fashion and style from the most classic to more interesting looks hitting the streets. It reminded me of viewing online sartorial fashion blogs, but instead this was taking place before me. From the more sophisticated style in areas like the Meat Packing District to something more casual in other parts such as SoHo, the city is on it’s feet and moving. This is my first time ever participating in any event during this wonderful time and I must say it felt great. Attending the journey with us were photographer/ fashion connoisseur James Jean and good friend Rhamier. With a few days still in stored in fashion week I hope I can find the time to attend more events.
Trav – Topman | Vintage polo | Nudies | Sebago loafers
JKISSI – J.Crew Rain Slicker | Uniqlo Knit tie | Uniqlo Shirt | Topman skinny trousers | Vintage YSL Bag | Florshiem Wingtips
Fit Description - This is the outfit without the rain slicker and bad weather. I have really taken a liking to knit ties, it really displays a different texture from the usual. If you follow this site you know we like to take on many different color palettes. I think this is the first time I have put together a fit with the colors navy blue/varsity red/white/black. The influence of Thom Browne inspired me to take on the cropped pant length in this fit. The cropped pant length really brings out the details of shoes and socks.
BAND OF OUTSIDERS S/S 2010
The Band of Outsiders show was probably one of the more anticipated shows this week and we were given the pleasure of viewing what is in stored for next year. I have always been intrigued by most pieces Band of Outsiders have produced, and it definitely correlates with my sense of style. The ladies below are also showcasing the new ‘Boy’ collection by Band of Outsiders which looks even more better in person. The piece that caught my eye for the ladies was the real interesting striped pattern skirts. For the fellas I really took interest in the off-white cropped peacoat below a piece I will be looking forward to next year.
The founder of Band of Outsiders Scott Sternberg didn’t go to school for any major concerning fashion, but eventually started re-sewing vintage pieces that he found interesting. That really caught my attention that he had started from a different platform to journey to the same place. Great stuff – We thank the people at Band of Outsiders for inviting us, we are looking forward to the next show.
