Strap On

With the F/W season almost through, I’m very much looking forward to a bit of change and less layers in my daily routine.  In the meantime, I’ve been trying to keep warm on the streets of New York with some of my favorite outerwear.  I haven’t been able to live without a topcoat.  For a professional like myself, it’s a great go-to piece to throw on over any look that might need structure.  Those who feel a bit basic in this style coat, strap on a fun colored or textured belt you might already have in your wardrobe to add some shape.

Fall Staple: Into the trenches

Now that the weather has started to take on a whole new feeling, outerwear will begin to play a role in our wardrobe choices.  One of my all-time favorites for fall is a trench coat.  An essential, its classic structure makes it one of the most versatile jackets on the market today.  By tradition, this cool-weather staple is one that will last you a lifetime.

Style Diary: Marisa Minicucci

Last Friday, I crossed the border into Canada to visit the showroom of fashion designer, Marisa Minicucci.  For those you unfamiliar, Marisa is an accomplished designer in Montreal with over 30 years of experience in the world of fashion.  Her latest creation, MM (the label), is a line of high-end ready-to-wear jackets that are unlike anything I’ve seen before.   The fabrics, cuts, and detailing alone would make Karl himself blush.  Not only will these jackets make heads turn, but several can morph into completely different pieces, offering its owner a sense of versatility with the zip of a zipper or pop of a button.

With less than 24 hours to spare,  I only had time to check into my hotel room, quickly change, view the line and meet with Marisa and her daughter Anisa (who will be partnering with her mother on the line),  and film and interview an exclusive video for styleTV.   I also thought it might be fun to bring along my camera to snap some photos of my experience, therefore giving you a sneak peek of one my latest projects.
