With autumn in the air, the city has undergone a tangible shift from bright and balmy to dark and moody; perfect for romantic rendezvous on street corners and secret missions along windswept avenues. This week, under the gentle kiss of rain — and the glowing neon lights of long-forgotten watering holes — in matching trench coats and a transparent umbrella, Jenny and I ran around the streets of Noho with Kat Irlin to showcase what we’re wearing in these early days of fall. Don’t forget your partner in crime.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! We’re in that crossover period between spring showers and summer heat right now in New York City, and the atmosphere outside feels not unlike the inside of a mouth. Not my favorite. So, lightweight raincoats are an absolute must because you never know when the skies are going to open and drench all and sundry. I say lightweight, because anything heavier will result in a similar drenching, from sweat. Ewwwwww. Jenny and I took a spin around Nolita with our mate Kat Irlin yesterday, and paired our trench coats with easy T-shirts, broken-in denim and Chuck Taylors. Fun fact: The jeans that Jenny’s wearing are my 10-year-old Ksubi Van Winkles, which I bought in Auckland in 2006, and wore every day for the next two years. No joke. They were one color when I got them, every fade you see is entirely legit. (Pity I’ve outgrown them.)Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! I walk along this stretch of sidewalk past Tompkins Square Park every day of the week, stopping off at Ninth Street Espresso for a coffee on my way, and when I sit on the bench outside and look across the street, I see the seasonal transformation. The temperatures are dropping, the winds are picking up, and every surface is covered with a blanket of golden leaves: Fall is here. Perfect time for trench coats and woolen pants, with sharp leather lace-ups.Click to Continue!
There’s something about watching the most English of all English fashion brands presenting its collection on home-soil that just absolutely does it for me, and today’s Burberry Autumn Winter 2015 show was no exception. (Not even joking about the home-soil btw, the show is held in a tent on the grass at Kensington Garden.)Click to Continue!
