Hey, gidday mates! New York Fashion Week is in full swing, the Lacoste show has just wrapped here at the Lincoln Center (where I’m sitting, typing this post, just like fashion weeks of yore), and I stepped outside for a minute to shoot this brand new pair of Lacoste Montbard leather-and-suede hiking boots from the brand’s Autumn/Winter 2015 collection in-between shows.Click to Continue!
This morning at the Lacoste show, I attempted to interview the actor Nat Wolff (aka Rusty from Stuck In Love — a film that I liked so much I watched it twice in one month), but his publicist came over after a couple of questions and said I was only allowed to ask one more, so all I can tell you about him is that his favourite Instagram account is The Fat Jewish, that he’s about to star in a movie called Paper Towns based on a novel by John Green — opposite Cara Delevingne, no less — and that the coolest person he’s ever sat next to at a fashion show was Charles Michael Davis from Grey’s Anatomy. A couple of seats along, however, was Tijs Michiel Verwest — the Dutch DJ and international musical sensation better known as Tiësto — and he was quite happy to talk for a few minutes about everything from his experiences on Tinder to his favourite songs of the summer; plus his worst habit, his go-to joke, who he likes best out of Drake and Kanye, and lots more.Click to Continue!

Well in that scene, he wears a knitted polo shirt, and he rules. So I thought I’d give it a go.Click to Continue!
Everybody is going crazy over indigo right now and that works for me because it’s my favourite clothing colour, but I can’t get over the fact that calling out blue as a trend in men’s style seems somewhat moot. But anywho, wearing blue — or any other colour — head-to-toe requires a bit of patience and attention: The tones have to be different but complementary, the textures should juxtapose (literally the most ridiculously overused word in fashion of all time, but it’s applicable here), and you probably don’t want to mix too many brights with each other because you’ll end up looking like a clown.Click to Continue!
