I recently checked out Shauns Shades S/S 2014 collection at The Modern at MOMA. Raising my hand to admit I have an obsession with sunglasses, I fell in love with their Earlsferry in a matte camo green finish. Not only did they fit my face perfectly, but the Carl Zeiss lenses made my view picture perfect. The LA-based eyewear brand also gives back in a big way with their “Give Sight” commitment. When you purchase a pair, it triggers one more pair of glasses to be given to someone in need. To learn more, check out styleTV’s recent interview with the designer Shaun Paterson and supermodel Chanel Iman here.
Feeling a bit blue lately? The runways were full of it last February showing off every single shade under the cool sky. I particularly love seeing it in stores this season since it is one of my favorite colors to wear besides red. Despite what some critics might say, I’m not afraid to layer several different shades on top of each other, and it seems designers weren’t either. To break it up, mix in a pop of print or block it with another bold color.

Pitti Uomo attracts some of the most stylish men in fashion to Florence, Italy, twice a year to check out what’s up-and-coming for menswear. A four day long trade event, it’s one that doesn’t disappoint when it comes to the street style. Despite this year’s overlap, bright colors, bold patterns, fur, and lots of jewelry took over the streets again last week for the fall 2014 run. Below, I’ve compiled some of the best shots of the leading men who attended the show looking, if you will, completely “pimp.”
And they’re off! Designers have begun to show F/W 2014 collections with the men up first. #MLFW was one of the hashtags vying for my attention the past couple days via Twitter. As I clicked away checking out what’s in store for next fall, I couldn’t help but become obsessed with the following looks that strutted down the runway. From Burberry Prorsum to Diesel Black Gold, I saw me in each one-LITERALLY!
As I bid farewell to yet another year, I look forward to what the new one has in-store for me. Every year I set goals for myself to achieve, and this year I’ve decided to push the bar even higher. I can’t wait to let you in on all the new partnerships and collaborations that are happening in 2014. I’m also excited to be expanding the blog with new features showcasing lots more photos and cool videos, via the styleTV channel.
With that said, as I look back upon the last 365 days, I’m grateful for all the love and support that has been shown to me throughout the year. Your likes, tweets and comments have not gone unnoticed. To those who continue to do so on a daily basis, I greatly appreciate your loyalty in support of my work. Keep them coming!
