God Save The Food is this popular restaurant in Milan that sits opposite Armani’s spaceship grey headquarters, and close to those of Zegna, Canali, and Moncler. On any given day it’s filled to the brink with the young Milanese fashion crowd, who come for the salads and fresh-squeezed juices (labeled smoothies on the menu), and who probably stay for the gossip, but I don’t speak the language so it’s hard to tell. It’s also the closest any of us out-of-towners come to healthy-ish food while we’re here for fashion week, so it’s a regular pitstop during the shows.Click to Continue!
Team #Menswear is on the homestretch here in Paris, but for some of the traveling fashion circus, the real tour hasn’t even started yet. Beginning with London Collections: Men on January the 8th, and ending with the Paris women’s shows on March the 9th, the first two months of the year are particularly grueling for the street style photographers, who spend long days outside in the elements, and long nights inside editing their work. Melodie Jeng is one of the few female photographers who does the entire stretch (all 10 fashion weeks), for a range of clients including Vogue, models.com, Barney’s New York, Saks Fifth Ave, New York Magazine, and more. Over the last few seasons I’ve interviewed almost all of the top male photographers, so I thought it was about time I spoke with one of the most successful females. The following is a conversation with Melodie Jeng.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! Day three of Milan Fashion Week is done and dusted, as is my time here with the shows, with Italy, and with Europe in general. I’ve got a couple of final blog posts to write (including my round up of favourite looks from today), and then I’m flying back to New York tomorrow. It was a tough call to skip Paris because it’s my favourite leg of the whole shebang, but I’ve got too much work happening in New York right now to be able to afford to leave the city for a 20 day stint, so I made the difficult — but maybe adult? — decision to go back home at the end of Milan. But what a week it’s been! (More on that, later.) So without further ado, here’s what I wore yesterday for day two of Milan Fashion Week — as captured by some of the world’s top street style photographers.Click to Continue!
Richard Biedul is not only one of my favourite male models on the menswear circuit, but he’s also one of my favourite human beings — the guy has a tattoo of a smug unicorn on his tricep, what’s not to love? I met him a couple of years ago through Tom Bull, and we’ve stayed in touch ever since, catching up whenever we’re in the same city on the job. The guy is every bit the professional chameleon. When I encountered him for the first time in Williamsburg back in Summer of 2013 he was wearing ripped-up jeans and a cut-off T-shirt; next time I saw him in the Winter of 2014, he was sitting in a hotel bar in London destroying the game in a perfectly cut Savile Row suit.Click to Continue!
