Maison Kitsune has a new brick and mortar location in NYC, on the quietly cool stretch of Rivington (between Chrystie and the Bowery) in the Lower East Side. Fellow retailers on the block include Green Fingers (which shares its backyard garden with Kitsune), Freeman’s Sporting Club, and Morgenstern’s Finest Ice Cream, meaning it’s fast becoming the ideal hang spot for anybody looking for a moment’s break from the traffic, the humidity and the noise so prevalent in the city this time of year.

While everyone else was chatting and socializing like ordinary human beings, I went from oneClick to Continue!

To kick things off, yesterday Greg Lewis, Richard Biedul and I rocked up to the Shipley & Halmos showroom in the heart of SoHo to shoot a new installment of my VS series. Richie is my new best good friend, and here are a couple of quick facts about him: He’s English, he grows a good beard, he does 200 press-ups and 400 sit-ups EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK, he used to date a star of the Harry Potter film franchise, and he’s a former entertainment lawyer.

Earlier in the week, I mentioned the importance of dressing for the job you want even if you’re not in the most liquid financial position. Well, friends, let me introduce you to a little store by the name of Club Monaco. In short, Club Monaco is your one stop shop for well-priced, well-designed clothing that’ll take you from woe to go. Getting there is as simple as throwing pieces together in a slightly off manner. Cliche alert: It’s classic with a twist.
