Are You A Gentleman?

A new feature on GQ's website is the "Where Are Your Manner's" poll. I tested it out. Unfortunately, for the hopeless the proper answers are not written down. However, you can learn if you are actually polite or not. Some may find it shocking, some may find it irrelevant to themselves, or just exactly what they wanted to hear. The poll seems to be on target because it described me as "almost gentlemanly like......and nearly in the presence of Hugh Grant. Check it out for yourself: GQ Poll

Patrik Ervell Fall 2007- click on image to enlarge

Patrik Ervell, Swedish born designer, most notorious for his role as an editor at V Magazine once a man of inexperience and practically foreign to the idea of designing clothes. Patrik had his life Epiphany, he is no longer the man who would sit behind a desk stacked with papers besides a laptop regarding commendable fashion necessities. Rather, since his metamorphosis from writer to designer his years of being an on-looker have served him well. Although, still unknown by many Ervell with his lean cuts and strictly awesome jackets will possibly someday conquer the streets of New York with his fashion.

Color galore with the Fall/Winter collection of 2007-2008. The Spanish designer used a varied color collection while still keeping her traditional motifs: hearts, moons, and every fun girly shape. However, this time she used them to create a newer sporty chic look. No more chic tennis girl rather an original chic mountain girl.Well done..........Agatha on the ski apparel.

Trovata Ad Campaign

New York Fashion Week's best prank came from Nicolae & Elisabeta Perescu, who claimed to be two famous Romanians received lots of attention from cameras due to their fury friend, Leo the cat. They have been linked to Trovata because that's the only clothing they wear. However, their styling was truly mediocre. You may have seen them cruising around New York City in a classic car with an entourage throwing out flower petals and a violinist close by.

The Premium Denim Downfall

The trend of popular premium denim labels rapidly changes year after year. In the past Levi almost died out through over-exposure; however, with Capital Es they have gained back their reputation for quality premium denim. Unfortunately, 7evens followed the same pattern and are now growing increasingly unpopular. Could Rock & Republic be the next denim company to fall from the top as fast as they made it big? The only blames have been lawsuits & naming rights plagueing the company. Along, with cliche looks and a devestating lookbook from the '07 which recently appeared in New York Fashion week as most likely the worst show of them all.
