As much as I love wearing bracelets, I tend to stray away from bangles – they’re a nuisance and make too much noise, mostly because they’re usually too big for my small wrists. Designed by Cynthia Sakai, Vita Fede‘s collection of modern and sophisticated hinged bracelets have convinced me otherwise. Not only are they available in different sizes, they are incredible comfortable and weighty . . . and have been a permanent staple in my jewelry rotation. Honestly, obsessed!

Though we’re only ankle deep in next season’s showings, it’s clear that the menswear trend has carried over to fall. Case in point: Thakoon Panichgul‘s latest collection for Thakoon Addition where striped shirting, slouchy trousers, and sharp suits were executed with such ease. I’m personally craving all the oversized knits, knitted outerwear, and patent leather loafers . . . suit me up!
Paying tribute to retro 2D video games in a shoe ad campaign, Stockholm-based photographer Christian Åslund used the streets of Hong Kong as a backdrop for his navigating subjects. The images were shot from skyscrapers toward the ground, using a telephoto lens to make the photographs as flat as possible. Honestly, clever!
Cashmere sweaters over silk embroidered shift dresses over leather pants. Quilted parkas over silk printed strapless tops over silk chiffon tunics over crepe skirts. We were all taking mental notes while being schooled in the art of layering at BCBG Max Azria yesterday. This season, Max and Lubov Azria combined the intricate tile patterns of Turkey, the eclectic style of the gypsies of Southern Europe, and the gritty street artwork of artist Phil Frost into one lustworthy collection – filled with a copious amount of separates for all your layering interpretations. Add slouchy beanies and thigh high leather boots and it’s truly head to toe perfection.
