Hey, gidday mates! I’m sitting in the departure lounge at Charles de Gaulle Airport about to catch an IcelandAir flight to Reykjavik, where I’ve got a quick 90 minute layover before I fly onto JFK, and into “one of the largest snowstorms in the history of this city,” or not. Turns out the three feet of snow they expected in New York was actually only 10 inches, which, as far as I’m concerned, is the best version of an oversell and under-deliver that I’ve ever encountered.Click to Continue!
Paris Fashion Week Autumn Winter 2015, and the European menswear season as a whole, is officially done and dusted.

Matvey Lykov at Thom Browne. Bonjour mes amis! Here’s the final lot of photos from my disposable camera that I shot while I was in Paris in June.

Everything’s changing in New York. Who knows whatClick to Continue!
When you’ve got the early-morning slot at Paris Fashion Week, it’s a good idea to give people a compelling reason to make the trek an hour across town for your show — namely, coffee. But Kenzo went one step further, serving freshly pressed juices from banana and apple-clad beach shacks to the masses. Humberto Leon and Carol Lim had their native California on the mind this season, despite the fact they can no longer call it home (the pair spend half their time in Paris, the other half in New York). And what better way to show their affinity forClick to Continue!
Opening Ceremony Los Angeles. The Kenzo menswear show is always a major highlight for me here in Paris, for several reasons: the clothes are wearable and totally up my alley; the invitations are awesome; the showmanship is amazing (one year they poured tonnes of sand onto the runway from about 50 hanging cauldrons, this season they made it rain bubbles); they gave me my first ever European front row seat (and for that, they’ll always have a special place in my heart).
