look of the week
San Francisco's Dia de los Muertos and Festival of Alters celebrations take place tomorrow evening, in the Mission. We're of course, looking forward to the fashion, including -- among other dark accessories -- plenty of skulls.
We took inspiration from the late, great fashion designer, Alexander McQueen (#6) (known for his iconic skull-prints), and SF turned LA-based artist, Sylvia Ji, for this week's collection of chic skulls.
Last year, a girlfriend of mine and her now husband were Janelle Monae and Pee-wee Herman for Halloween. An unlikely pair, indeed, but both costumes were spot onand brilliant. That got me thinking... Pee-Wee is one of those perfect costumes: easy, fun, iconic while not overly costumey, and works for men or women. Heck, it even gives you an excuse to have a big adventure and ride around on a bicycle (Halloween Critical Mass, anyone?).
While victory is sweet, losing a few makes things more exciting for our boys, as they take on St. Louis in the fourth game of the series. The pressure is on.
It's that time of year again when transplants from the Northwest and New England get nostalgic for the autumns they once knew, while the Indian summer still lingers in the distance (le sigh). So what's the perfect shoe for this in-between season? Ankle boots. And to go with the funky weather patterns of late, we decided to pull together seven funky styles.
Step into fall with these dynamic kicks.
Recently, we noticed a new surge in suede shoes -- and we're serious about our suede. In particular, we're digging the rise of the suede sneaker (or at least that's what we're calling it).
From all-suede high-tops (#3) to mixed-fabric low-tops (#5, #7), the textures and colors are perfect for fall -- plus, the soft leather adds sophistication to classics like Vans (#1) and Converse (#2). Here are our top picks.
After touring through Minneapolis, Chicago and Los Angeles, Macy's Glamorama will take over the Orpheum Theatre tomorrow night in its closing show. This year, the nearly 30-year-old annual fashion, music, and fundraising institution will feature the poppy YouTube-discovery, Karmin, and oh-la-la headliner, Robin Thicke, in addition to fall runway looks by Bar III (#1, #4), Calvin Klein and more.
What's one accessory most men can get behind? Belts. Sure, they're mostly functional, but that doesn't mean they should be flat and boring. In fact, you'd be surprised how much a little belt can do to complete your look.
